‘Scandal’ Season Five Premiere: Did Olivia and Fitz Go Public?.

Everything unfolds after Princess Emily of Caledonia is killed in a crash that happens after a White House state dinner and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is enlisted to prevent images of the princess’ body from going public. “Scandal” came back in full force Thursday night with a doomed marriage, a depressed Gladiator, a rekindled relationship of presidential proportions and a royal scandal during the Season 5 premiere.“Scandal” actress Kerry Washington took time away from a red carpet stroll Thursday at the Plaza Hotel after she got wind that Pope Francis and his motorcade was soon to speed down Fifth Ave.Kerry Washington’s red carpet hairstylist, Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, dished to Us Weekly on her favorite Olivia Pope hairstyle, keeping the star’s hair healthy, and more At long, long last: Scandal returns to Us tonight!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. Longtime Olitz fans were likely pleased with Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) White House rendezvousing, but one First Lady was not so privy to the party in the President’s bed.

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. David (Joshua Malina) tells Olivia the truth about the princess’ death: she was pregnant and they realize she was having an affair with her bodyguard.

Patrick’s Cathedral. “I love Jake (played by Scott Foley) too so we’ll all just have to hang in there and see what happens,” she said, referring to cliffhanger from last season. “The opportunity to combine the passion of empowering women and anti-violence against women it was like whoa, that’s me,” she told Confidenti@l after her brush with the Pope. “I really love doing this.” Washington’s Purple Purse, designed with help from the husband and wife team of Dee Ocleppo and Tommy Hilfiger, will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue. 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. She basically tells me I’m naive and as soon as the American people find out, there is going to be a hurricane descended upon us and she’s like, we’ll never going to survive it.

The debate about the prince also creates a rift between Fitz and Olivia, as he won’t press charges and threatens to prosecute Olivia if she goes public with it. Olivia and Fitz were basically the only two with a happy ending, “but everybody else was in a fairly blown apart place,” Shonda Rhimes told reporters at TCA. “So Cyrus was no longer working in the White House. I get sad when Scandal’s coming back, because Kerry comes to me and says, ‘Okay, Takisha, we have to tone it down!'” she confessed, laughing. “But I love the light in her hair, you know? Ultimately, Olivia tells Fitz that she’s not ready to go public with him yet. “The minute the world finds out about us, we stop being you and me and become a spectacle,” she tells him, comparing their relationship to the public scrutiny that the prince and princess had.

If you remember back to the election fraud when they stole his first election, after coming back from that and winning his second election, he basically has tried very hard to just live in the truth and he’s just been unable to. Olivia believes they can’t make it work in public yet, since they can’t make things work in private yet — and insists that he not interfere with her work. However, Abby (Darby Stanchfield) observes the tail end of things and realizes that Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) was right — that Olivia has been undermining both of them and was the one who got Fitz to go to Mellie’s swearing in ceremony.

Part one, in the short term, Fitz felt at the end of last season so deeply and profoundly betrayed by Mellie — yes, she was responsible for the deaths of 17 jurors, she stupidly gave up these names of these jurors to Rowan (Joe Morton), but the worst part of that, aside from the deaths of those people, is that she hid this from Fitz and never came to him. Fitz had declared Mellie as his best friend — they really had become partners in a nonromantic way so when he found out what she had done and that she had gone back to her old ways and worked with the man that it turns out was the murderer of her son and the bain of his existence, it was such a profound betrayal that Fitz is just done with her. Fitz is enraged at Mellie, disgusted with Mellie, and he feels that he’s done with Mellie, but they have a very complicated relationship and he can’t just write her out of her life.
