Scandal Season 5 Preview: Twisty, Crazy Goodness

by Clarissa / September 10, 2015

Scandal fans were in for a shock when Olivia and Fitz finally got together in the season 4 finale after Cyrus was fired and Mellie was kicked out of the White House by her husband. But would the pair actually last?

They might. In a new preview for the upcoming fifth season, Fitz tells Mellie that he’s divorcing her and he and Olivia engage in some very steamy sex.

Meanwhile, Portia de Rossi has been upgraded to a series regular, which makes sense now that she’s been promoted to Fitz’s Chief of Staff. And for the fans who have missed the way that Olivia Pope and Associates used to be so take-charge with their business, have no fear! Because the gladiators are going to go back to “gladiating” in season 5.

Don’t miss the season premiere of Scandal on Thursday, September 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
