Scandal Season 5 Premiere Sneak Peek: State Dinner

by Clarissa / September 24, 2015

Fitz and Olivia are finally together when Scandal returns for its fifth season tonight (watch a preview), but how long before people know about it? In the sneak peek below, Abby seems to believe that the President kicked his wife out of the White House and wonders how long it took before he called Olivia, so it appears that she hasn’t told her old friend about the fact that she and Fitz have renewed their relationship. But with Fitz prepared to divorce Mellie, will he broadcast his new relationship to the world or will it be used against them in secret?

Elsewhere in the episode, Cyrus, Mellie and Huck are all still dealing with the aftermath of having help Command. And the Queen of Caldonia makes a visit to the U.S. When tragedy strikes her family, she hires Olivia to ensure that their private life actually remains private.

Don’t miss the season premiere of Scandal tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
