As if Olivia Pope & Associates doesn’t have enough crises to handle, the Gladiators are about to get terrorized by the worst woman ever.
‘Scandal’: Mama Pope Lives On
Are you ready for some more wrist-biting, blood-gushing, stomach churning scandals? You better be because Mama Pope is back on board.
Khandi Alexander is reprising her role as Olivia Pope’s relentless terrorist mother, Maya Lewis, ABC confirmed to HollywoodLife.com.
The actress will return to T.G.I.T’s political drama on the Season 4 midseason finale, titled “Where the Sun Don’t Shine,” airing on Nov. 20.
No details on her comeback, but we have a feeling she’ll be out for revenge.
The last time we saw mommy dearest, Rowan (Joe Morton) framed her for the murder of President Fitz’s son Jerry Grant Jr., and locked her away. Olivia and Fitz believed Maya to be dead.
Since then, the blame has shifted. Olivia’s other man, Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), has been framed for the murder and was last seen being brutally beaten by Fitz, sending Liv in a tailspin of emotion.
(We’re still crying over this quarrel of our lovers.)
Poor Liv — a beaten up boyfriend, by her own father’s doing, and a crazy mother back from the “dead?” We’d be guzzling that vino, too.
HollywoodLifers, are you excited to see Mama Pope back on Scandal? What do you think she’ll do to Liv? And what about Rowan?! Let us know!
