[Warning: Spoilers for season 2 premiere]
Scandal is definitely one of Fall TV’s most addictive shows. The drama begins again tonight on ABC. Two big questions for season 2: Who is Quinn Perkins? And when will the President and Olivia reunite?
We don’t know the answer to question #2 but everyone will know who Quinn Perkins really is almost immediately into the premiere. As for Fitz and Olivia Pope fans, don’t worry. There is some interaction and it’s simply sexy. It’ll never be completely satisfying, however, because, in our opinion, these two need to be a couple. Now. But we all know that can’t happen anytime soon.
The season 2 premiere lives up to the hype. If you were concerned that learning Quinn’s identity would be a letdown, don’t be. And even though we learn who she really is, that won’t be the end of the story. There’s a revelation in the final seconds of “White Hats Off” that’s pretty mind-blowing. In other Scandal-acious happenings, the First Lady continues to be badass and unrelenting in her quest to keep her presidential hubby relevant and popular. We’re so glad Bellamy Young is on board as a series regular. She brings so much to the table. Stephen’s [Henry Ian Cusick] absence is explained. But his presence, at least to us, is missed. Other than that, the episode is going to leave you wanting more and that’s a beautiful thing.
The ABC Synopsis for “White Hats Off”: Quinn’s identity is finally revealed, and the more the Pope & Associates team learn about her past, the more they realize she could be their biggest scandal yet. Meanwhile, a senator seeks Olivia’s help when his personal life is about to become a public disgrace, and President Fitz is stuck between a rock and hard place when Mellie and Cyrus put him in a very compromising position during a live television interview, on the sophomore season premiere of “Scandal,” THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Olivia Pope is one of my favorite characters as well. She’s so fierce. And I totally agree about the music.

3 Moments of Goodness from Brooklyn Nine-Nine “Johnny and Dora”
The most satisfying part of this season’s finale has to the Jake and Amy kiss. Well, they kiss three times but the last one is the best one — and it means something. The Charles and Rosa dynamic was also great. I love how she’s convinced he doesn’t know anything…
Man, this show has so many plot twists per episode, I always watch each episode twice just to catch all the little details. Olivia is such a great, entertaining character, she might be my favorite character on TV right now along with Fiona Gallagher from Shameless.
One thing I\’ve also appreciated about this show (and all of Shonda Rhimes\’ shows for that matter) is that they really pay attention to the music, and always seem to have great songs that add to the mood of the show, rather than distract. A great example in this episode was \”Tied Knots\” by The Album Leaf, which plays when Olivia watches the Kimberly Mitchell interview and talks to Fitz – I thought the song did a great job of heightening the moment there…again it\’s the attention to detail that puts this show above others.
