Are we on the brink of a presidential divorce?
As teased in the first trailer, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) is prepping to ask Mellie (Bellamy Young) to consciously uncouple when Scandal returns for its fifth season — and boy does he look unhappy about it in the new photos released by ABC.
Here’s the new logline for the premiere, “Heavy Is the Head”: “Olivia and Fitz are back together again and enjoying every scandalous moment together while Cyrus, Mellie and Huck are all still dealing with the aftermath of helping Command. Meanwhile, when a visit from the Queen of Caldonia and her family turns into a tragedy, Olivia is hired to make sure the Royal family’s private life stays private, on the Season 5 premiere of Scandal.”
Scandal returns Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
