‘Scandal’ FINALLY returns on Feb. 11 after a months-long hiatus. The midseason premiere is going to be crazy and filled with every twist imaginable. Here’s everything you need to know to get caught up before the show!
Are you ready, Gladiators? Scandal is BACK, and we’re so ready. So much went down on the winter finale that it’s hard to know where to begin. If you need a little recap before the midseason premiere, we’ve got just what you need!
*Olivia and Fitz are done — for now.
In the winter finale, Olivia and Fitz had their worst fight yet. After Fitz kind of forced her to move into the White House, Olivia felt completely trapped. She reached her breaking point. “There is no us. There is no future,” Olivia screamed at him. Then she moved out of the White House.
*Olivia got an abortion!
Olivia shocked everyone when she got an abortion in the midseason finale. Before her fight with Fitz, she terminated her pregnancy. The Olitz baby is gone, and Fitz doesn’t even know. Honestly, if Fitz finds out in this half of the season, it might truly break him.
*There’s a new Gladiator in town.
Marcus is the new Gladiator joining the gang. Honestly, now that Olivia is out of the White House, OPA should be getting back on track this half of the season. Thank goodness!
*Rowan’s still got the power.
After jail and being kidnapped by Huck, Rowan found his way back to the top of the power food chain. Huck let him go, and Jake was waiting for him when he got home. Will B613 find its way back? As long as Rowan’s in power, no one is safe. Oh, and Tom is still alive.
*Olivia and Jake may be rekindling their romance.
In one of the only promos released about the new episodes, it sure looks like Olivia and Jake are having a hot hookup outside her apartment. Despite choosing Fitz, Olivia has never been able to let go of Jake completely. One thing’s for sure — Fitz won’t be happy about an Olake reunion.
Scandal returns Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Stay tuned for our recap of the episode!
