When Will ‘Scandal’ Come Back For Season 6, Episode 5?


ABC completely played us. It’s Thursday and like all Thursdays, we couldn’t wait to get our lives with a new episode of Scandal. However, just when things were getting amazing, ABC decided to put the show on a mini-hiatus with no new episodes until March. What was the point of almost getting through the week if we can’t be rewarded with love stories, assassinations and affairs? Maybe it’s for the best. This break gives us an ample amount of time to process what exactly is going on this season. And there’s A LOT to think about.

Pardon the interruption…. #Scandal

It’s a little weird to see Olivia and Fitz in a relationship that isn’t romantic. Fitz is definitely moving on with the new director of the FBI and Olivia is pretending she doesn’t care. Olivia and Mellie are in a full-on bromance, enjoying wine together like they’ve been lifelong friends instead of the opposing wife and mistress. Cyrus is in jail for murder, which would’ve been well deserved… but it turns out that he didn’t do it. A secret affair with ex-Secret Service Agent/B613 operative Tom has definitely gotten Cyrus into an immense amount of trouble. Will he be able to get himself out of it? Or will Olivia Pope swoop in and fix the consequences like she’s done many times before?
