‘Scandal’ Preview: “An Innocent Man” [Photos & Video]

In this week’s episode of Scandal, titled “An Innocent Man,” Olivia is summoned by a man (Brian Benben, Private Practice) in prison who claims that he was wrongly accused. Meanwhile, Mellie has officially cleaned up her act and becomes fascinated by a former first lady who seems to have similar stories to those of her own. Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) is getting closer and closer to corrupting the White House and Abby goes up against Fitz in order to find out what’s happening to Jake Ballard. Good for you, Red!

Check out a sneak peek of this week’s episode below.

‘Scandal’ Preview: “Like Father, Like Daughter” [Photos and Video]

Scandal is just so scandalicious and I’m absolutely loving it! Let’s start off with Olivia shall we? Why can’t she just get over Fitz and be with Jake. I mean, he’s there for her apparently doing things to her that she likes and even came back to the States for her. Jake on the other hand, keeps telling her that he’s not her boyfriend, so he can’t have dinner with her creepy father, because she’s in love with another man. Speaking of Rowan, Jake knows what he did. He knows that he had Harrison and Jerry killed and told him to leave town and to never come back. We all know that Rowan would never fall for that no matter how big the threat. I think that dinner went pretty well, don’t you?

Now on to Mellie, who is still struggling to get back to normal life, which is completely understandable. She becomes fixated on this national news story about a husband and wife who went hiking only to have the husband fall to his death and the wife presumed to have pushed him. She basically calls a cabinet meeting only to find herself embarrassed as they’ve already solved the case.

David Rosen seems to have found himself inside the President’s inner circle, a.k.a The Bubble. He helps President Grant with the issue of gun control, only to find the senator he had blackmailed is now dead. Suicide by gun. Go figure.

Lizzie (Portia de Rossi) is still doing whatever it is that she’s doing and it seems to be working, as no last name Michael (Matthew Del Negro) finally got Cyrus to give it up. We all know it’s going to come out that he’s paid for sex with a male prostitute.

In this week’s episode titled “Like Father, Like Daughter,” Fitz asks Olivia to shut down a situation that could destroy the Grant family’s reputation – assuming this has something to do with Olivia finding Karen Grant, now played by Mary Mouser, which we reported earlier last month.

‘Scandal’ Preview: “Inside the Bubble” [Photos and Videos]

Thursday night is definitely my new favorite. Olivia Pope and most of the associates are back together doing what they do best, since we know Liv and Jake aren’t going back to the island. However, they do still have some steamy moments. Can we talk about last week’s episode just for a minute? I didn’t even know she was wearing boots! Meanwhile, Cyrus is having some hot and heavy moments of his own. Too bad Lizzie (Portia de Rossi) is taking advantage of his state (dealing with the death of his husband), and planting a prostitute in his life. Even if he is a sexy prostitute. I mean, is Michael (Matthew Del Negro) a prostitute? Or just some guy Lizzie hired to pretend to be one. Either way, it’s super sketchy.

This week’s episode will be just as juicy with an old friend (Sonya Walger) coming to see Olivia after her daughter goes missing, Jake is digging to find the truth and David will stop at nothing to get that seat he so rightly deserves.

‘Scandal’ Season 4: First Look at Portia De Rossi

25scandal-600x319

Where on earth is Olivia Pope? Last we saw, Olivia was saying goodbye to her drama-filled life as a political fixer and flying off into the sunset, or in this case, a beach, with Jake. Wouldn’t you want to leave that all behind and spend your days on a beach drinking wine with Scott Foley?! I know I would. I mean, look at that face! Those eyes! Anyways, #TGIT is finally here and the wait is over. We all know that Olivia couldn’t leave the political world, and Fitz for that matter, for good, so here are a few photos from the Season 4 premiere to tide you over until tonight.

Check out Portia De Rossi in her stylish outfit, getting some sort of help from those gladiators I’m sure!

‘Scandal’ Season 4 Recasts First Daughter with ‘Body of Proof’s’ Mary Mouser

Madeline Carroll and Mary Mouser

The First Family will look a little different this season as ABC has just recast the role of Fitz and Mellie’s eldest child on their hit series Scandal.

According to EW, Body of Proof alum Mary Mouser has replaced Madeline Carroll as First Daughter Karen Grant. Now I’m not really sure how many people will notice the change as Karen only recently showed up this past season when she and her brother came home to visit from boarding school. However, I’m sure she’ll make quite the appearance on this coming season as she deals with the death of her brother.

Carroll was unable to return due to scheduling issues.

Mouser is set to make her first appearance in an October episode.

Scandal returns Sept. 25 at 9/8c on ABC.
