Plus, can her relationship with Fitz survive the revelations to come? The cast and creator tell all! (Sort of.)
Scandal is officially back — just ask the million Twitter trends it spawned during its Oct. 3 season premiere — and it’s bringing more bombshells than ever. With Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) affair buried for now, creator Shonda Rimes tells HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine that Scandal is moving onto an even “dark”er revelation in the weeks to come: “Remington!”
In case you zoned out in the last few minutes of the premiere, Operation Remington was the off-book mission Fitz and Jake (Scott Foley) were a part of in Iran, the one Cyrus (Jeff Perry) “oh my God”-ed over once he learned *the truth.* As crazy as it sounds, Remington actually involved Olivia!
“It’s complex; you discover things on top of things on top of things that really go to the heart of who Olivia is as a person,” Shonda tells the site.
And Scott adds, “If you think about the darkest thing you can imagine about Olivia, it’s probably that. That’s how dark Remington is.”
Fitz & Olivia Fizzling Out?
Between Fitz leaking Olivia’s name to the press — which Liv still doesn’t know — and her involvement in Remington — which we still don’t know — this season is going to introduce more obstacles than ever for the show’s core couple. But fear not, Gladiators; no one’s calling it quits anytime soon!
“They’ll have to define the new rules,” Kerry teases. “And as more information unravels, their relationship will continue to evolve.”
