After the scandal-filled Scandal finale last May, it's time for the best crisis management firm in Washington, D.C., to get back to business. And no one is more ready than the queen of all gladiators herself: Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington).
Yes, the entire world now knows she is the mistress of the President of the United States, Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn). And yes -- that may not even be her biggest problem. Fans of the show also got another slap in the face when it was revealed that Rowan (Joe Morton), the head of the secret goverment black-ops program B6-13, is actually Olivia's dad. But it gets even worse! When Olivia's kinda boyfriend/kinda stalker/kinda bodyguard Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) went against Rowan's orders, he was thrown into "the hole". Out of breath yet?
It may not be pretty, but we know our girl is going to get out of this jam. Between her angry tell-offs and "oh-no-you-didn't" faces, Olivia Pope is someone you do not want to mess with.
So before Olivia shouts, "it's handled!" let's prepare ourselves for another season of drama and deceit with some of her best reactions -- in GIFs. What better way to get pumped for tonight's season premiere on at 10 p.m. ET on ABC?
