‘Scandal,’ season 3, episode 1: “It’s Handled” starts just where we were left last season, when fixer Olivia Pope was revealed as the president’s mistress.
Both the White House and Pope and Associates face their biggest scandal to date, and a surprise allegiance is formed to handle it. Meanwhile, Olivia’s father, Rowan, will stop at nothing to carry out his orders and no one, including Olivia, can stand in his way.
Last season the show ended with reporters hounding Olivia as she left her apartment, asking questions about her relationship with the married president. She’s eventually saved by the head of CIA Black Ops division B613, who turns out to be her father.
Tune in to the season premiere of Scandal on Thursday 10 p.m. ET, 9:00 p.m. CT on ABC.
