Kerry Washington talks about ‘Scandal’ on ‘Good Morning America,’ gets bombarded by fans outside.

We’ve all seen the trailer’s leading up to tonight’s big Scandal return: After four seasons of breaking up and making up, Olivia and Fitz are finally going official! Oh, and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) murdered an entire room of people (the Grand Jury that was convened to hear testimony about B613, whom Command aka Rowan aka Eli Pope aka Olivia’s terrifying father ordered killed), then Quinn (Katie Lowes) found out an put a gun to his head while riding on a bus.“Scandal” star Kerry Washington opened up Thursday about the new status of her character Olivia Pope’s relationship with President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) — which will be the focal point of the show’s fifth season, premiering Thursday night. “In television, we tend to think when two people come together that’s the end,” Washington said on “Good Morning America.” “But in life, when two people come together, that’s the beginning.It’s a big day for both popes in Washington, D.C.: Catholic leader , who began his first visit to the United States in the capital, and the fictional political fixer Olivia Pope, who Gladiators will find freshly moved into the White House when Scandal returns. “I think my celebrity crush is this pope,” the actress joked on Live! with Kelly and Michael on Thursday morning. “I always get that question and I never want to say anybody, because then you see him at a party.Season 5 of Scandal, yet another in Shonda Rhimes’ stable of popular shows headed by morally conflicted female characters, returns Sept. 24 on ABC (9 p.m.).

It’s the Ross and Rachel moment audiences have been waiting for, but even Kerry Washington admits she was worried some of the sexy sizzle might fade bringing their romance out of the political shadows. “When I first read last year’s finale I was like, are we done? This comes after Washington told the Television Critics Association’s tour this summer that even she was surprised by the new season’s devious plotline.

Consider this your Coles Notes to Season 4: a binge-watching meal replacement that breaks down its highlights and lowlights to give you maximum premiere pleasure. Olivia and Jake (Scott Foley) turned Rowan in to the CIA, but Papa Pope (Joe Morton) had pull with Cyrus, who threatened the CIA director and got the do-gooders arrested instead (don’t worry, they got out).

On Thursday, the star was bombarded by selfie-seeking fans outside of the “Good Morning America” studios in New York Thursday — prompting security to push fans away and quickly usher her to her car. The actress remained cordial the whole time but appeared frazzled by the incident in the few moments before police and security could break the crowd up. After almost a full season of trying to take down her father, crisis manager Olivia Pope and her deadly associates finally figure out they need to change the rules to eliminate the head of B613.

And so when dad Rowan destroys all evidence and witnesses to the organization and resumes his alter ego, Eli, the team catches him on ordinary embezzlement charges. Episode 14, “The Lawn Chair”: After most of the first half of Season 4 focused on Oliva’s awful kidnapping and how it affected her sense of security, this is the first time we see her back in her element, fixing a problem in front of the media.

After attempting to build a case against covert government agency B613 all season long, Attorney General David Rosen comes across the bus of murdered grand jurors, prompting him to finally give up the quest for justice in order to save himself. And we pick up sort of right there in that environment, and we see what happens next.” When Scandal makes its triumphant return, Fitz and Olivia are still together (but are they standing in the sun?!), while everybody else is still dealing with the fallout of helping Command. Meanwhile, after spending most of last season on Liv’s emotional well-being, Season 5 features a return to the weekly antics of Pope and Associates, including a new “gladiator” for the firm. Mum’s the word on who that will be, but Season 4 guest star Cornelius Smith Jr. joins the cast full-time and Mia Maestro has been tapped for a large, recurring, top secret role.
