    I did not see Quinn’s face in the trailer, finally B613 is history! they took down command and hawk or hulk (what ever his name is) needs serious rehabilitation, Mellie and Cyrus (with the 666 on his head that is not seen) are out of the white house those are the real politicians will Fitz survive?

    Oh My God!!!! They will get divorced, I can’t handle it!!!!!???????

    Seriously, we know how it goes, they will get divorced, Olivia and Fitz will pretend to be happy for a while fail! and one day Fitz and Mellie will do something “that reminds them of the past” and Fitz will cheat on Olivia with Mellie.

    Take it to the bank, I have never rolled my eyes more in my life than in the 3 years I watched Scandal, so predictable!

    Am I the only one that isn’t really tripped my scandal? Olivia pope is just one disturbed female. Can’t deal with the fact that everyone is oohing someone who needs psychological help. Fitzgerald is just one weakling.

    If it were real life, Olivia and Fitz will still break up and Fitz will definitely cheat on Olivia

    Can’t forget a scene where the congressman asking Olivia out told her ‘love isn’t meant to be difficult’ that scene showed how emotionally unhealthy Olivia is.

      Lol if it were real life Mellie would have placed a successful hit on Olivia a long time ago and Fitz and Cyrus would have covered it up so Fitz could stay president. He would have then proceeded to sleep with every woman in DC between the age of 22 and 45.

    Shonda – celebrating side chicks since 2012. Olivia Pope – patron saint of all side chicks everywhere. Fitzgerald Grant – the man who took “side-chicking” to new heights. Level pass level mehn, gerrarehere.

    Scandal – my favourite show. (God forgive me)

      [email protected] Olivia Pope-patron saint of all side chicks everywhere. I tot I couldn’t stand anoda season of scandal, after seeing dis clip, I knw I’ll survive one more season.

      Asin eh, Olivia pope is every side chicks role model and these men even use Olivia pope to play on their side chicks intelligence. I tell ladies, if you must date a married man, do it for the money or serious tangible benefits. Don’t go loving anybody. You’ll just be osho-free as the man will use ‘I love you’ to keep you with him while saving his money. Then you’ll start being understanding with him while he goes home to his wife and tells you he’s obligated to get but he loves you * yimu*

      But if you’re doing it for the money, you’ll just collect your cheque and move on, be romantic when he’s around, forget he exists when he hasn’t called except when you need money, then you turn on your feminine moves.

      I’ve been telling a friend of mine this but she’s too stupid to listen. Dating a millionaire yet she’s hopping cabs and everyday she’ll be putting useless pms ‘there is pain in the pleasure of love’ Oriegwu

      Women need to learn objectivity.

      Sorry for the epistle. Shonda just needs another production with a well adjusted female in it.

    Mellie will never give Fitz a divorce.Mellie is one strong politician. She will find loopholes, even blackmail to get him back. olivia is living on bubbles

    another season… dancing shoki
    Cyrus ” we are all murderers”
    reality check Scandal let me see all the puppets playing again. Waiting for all the intrigue.

    Shonda is going to surprise you lot – poetic justice will definitely be in tow as in the last movie of James Bond – the boss had to go.. It may not be this season but definitely some time..

    I wish I could confirm Shonda’s real agenda. Since I can’t I decided not to watch anymore. In Scandal she makes adultery seem romantic so people can support the wrongdoers not the wife. In How To Get Away With Murder, heterosexuals kiss then they leave the rest to the imagination but when gay characters are intimate, the scene gets really explicit. Its funny to me.
