Scandal has been keeping a tight lid on the details surrounding the upcoming new character played by Private Practice alum Paul Adelstein, but in this exclusive clip from Thursday’s new episode, that cat is out of the bag.
He’s playing Leo Bergen, a man Cyrus and Mellie want to enlist to help lead President Grant’s re-election campaign. The problem? Leo doesn’t seem keen on leading the Fitz Train for a number of reasons.
Watch Leo, a character who is set to recur, break it down with a heap of truth bombs in the sneak peek below. Then count with me the number of ways Mellie will probably rip this man to shreds for calling her a shrew.
Scandal airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
