TV show description:
Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite. That means keeping their biggest secrets private. Both revered and feared at the same time, she’s a former communications director to the President of the United States.

She left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm. A mesmerizing top crisis manager, Olivia is hoping to start a new chapter in her life — both professionally and personally — but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly, it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specialize in fixing other people’s lives, can’t quite fix the ones closest at hand — their own.

Olivia’s accomplished staff will follow her anywhere and do whatever it takes to save someone’s reputation. Stephen Finch (Henry Ian Cusick) has dated his share of women but is trying to settle down and finally have a family. Harrison Wright (Columbus Short) is a smooth and slick litigator. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) is a hacker extraordinaire with a CIA history. Firm investigator Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) has an enduring crush on Stephen. And Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes) is the new young lawyer in the office who’s in awe of Olivia and is initiated in a trial by fire on her very first day on the job.

Olivia’s former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn), and his chief of staff Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) are never far from her beat. Olivia’s clients aren’t the only ones with secrets however and some of the biggest ones hit very close to home.

    I’m elated that Scandal will be back! Sure there will be more exciting storylines to come. Loves the show from day 1. Thanks for bringing it back for all the Scandal die hards!

    Please , please, bring back SCANDAL! The TV show that we loved and couldn’t wait to watch. Liv and Fitz, makes the show. Use the other actors, (they are good) as fillers, if you must have them. They all can’t have leading ROLES! You had a Hit Show, don’t just give it away! The show doesn’t make sense any more. I was glad however, to see Papa Pope back though.

    Bring back Scandal,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Scandal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.. Scandal!!!!!!!

    OMG…What was last nights episode supposed to be? It was worse than the finale of The Sopranos and Seinfeld combined. Even though this wasn’t the finale, it certainly was horrible. I’ve read that Scandal has been canceled…if this is any indication of what’s to follow, I guess Scandal will be the final “S” (joining Seinfeld and Sopranos) as the worst finale ever….Seinfeld Sopranos Scandal (hopefully, the writers will save Scandal – and go back to their original fine writing and the actors will act right/write).
