Olivia and Fitz have never been farther apart on ‘Scandal,’ but Tony Goldwyn knows Olivia is never far from Fitz’s mind. However, in an EXCLUSIVE interview, Tony tells HollywoodLife.com that it’s time for Fitz to get a new love interest!
Is there any hope for Fitz and Olivia? Well, Tony Goldwyn still believes. The actor told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY at the Feb. 13 Writers Guild of America Awards that Fitz is still very much “addicted” to Olivia, but it may be time for Fitz to get a new woman in his life.
Olivia is now back with Jake — sort of. She left Fitz all alone in the White House in the midseason finale, and now Fitz is giving her the major silent treatment. Is this the end of Olitz? Tony is here to explain.
“I always have hope. Right now, it’s looking pretty bad. I think he deserves a new love interest. I think Fitz has had a pretty rough go of it of late,” Tony told us at the Writers Guild of America Awards on Feb. 13.
When asked about a new love interest, Tony continued: “That would be interesting, but he’s in love with Olivia Pope. Literally, all she would have to do is walk in and…he’s an addict. He’s addicted to her.”
Olivia is back at OPA and sleeping with Jake on the side. However, Jake shocked Olivia to her core when she learned he was the one behind the murder of her client’s boyfriend in the midseason premiere. Fitz also appointed Jake as head of the NSA and has no idea that Jake is still working with Rowan.
And Olivia thought living in the White House was bad. She’s still got trouble even when she’s not inside those walls. While Fitz will always love Olivia, we wouldn’t mind Fitz getting a little lovin’ like Olivia gets from Jake. Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
