The day is finally here gladiators! The fourth season of Scandal is scheduled to premiere tonight (Thursday, September 25) at its new time of 9/8c on ABC. We’ve been waiting for its return all summer, and now we can take our seats on our couch ready to tweet and sip on that new bottle of wine.
“Scandal” left off with a lot of questions unanswered. What would be of Olivia and Fitz? Is she and Jake for real this time? How will Cy go on without his hubby James? With this in mind, we came up with some scenarios that would be great to see on the new season of “Scandal.” Check them out and see if you agree!
Olivia returns from her getaway
During the season finale, one of the last scenes of “Scandal” showed Olivia on a private plane taking off into the sky with former B-613 leader Jake. Because the show depends on the fabulousness of Olivia and those gorgeous white coats that never get stained, we need her back in our nation’s capital! Between her father being back in his bad guy seat and Harrison presumably being killed, not only will she have other people’s problems to fix, but she’ll have to deal with her mess.
Olivia & Fitz keep their distance
This writer might be in the minority, but the Olivia and Fitz romance has gone stale and has become annoying. We think for this season that we keep the two from being intimate in any way. The tension should be there, what would “Scandal” be like without it? They should, however, give us a chance to miss their forbidden romance. Olivia’s profession and how she handles complex situations is incredible, and she is very intelligent. However, when it comes to men especially Fitz, she seems dense and fairy-tale minded. We want to see her step it up a bit more.
Fitz and Mellie get along
No marriage is perfect, and that can clearly be stretched to the imagination when it comes to “Scandal’s” most unhappy married couple. Seeing that old footage of Mellie and Fitz before he was president and running for Senator was adorable, don’t you agree? Of course, the scene that followed rubbed us all the wrong way (and made us #TeamMellie), we think the two should at least be cordial to one another this season.
The person behind James’ death is revealed
Perhaps it was missed, but there didn’t seem to be a revelation of who ordered the hit on Cyrus’ journalist husband, James Novak. It was so sad seeing him exit “Scandal” in such a dramatic and slow-to-die fashion. And many suspected that it may have been Cyrus who ordered that James be killed. Let’s face it, Cyrus has done much worse in seasons past. This is not to say that there weren’t individuals that would have good reason for having James killed and we clearly know who killed him, but who approved it? Hopefully, that gets revealed this season if it were not revealed yet.
Sound Off! What do you think? Is there something you would like to happen this season that’s missing from this list?
