The third season of Scandal will be airing on Thursday, October 3 at 10pm on ABC. This season is highly anticipated after the very eventful and surprising second season that left viewers cursing out the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes for the major cliffhanger.
Scandal has so many twists and turns, you can’t look away from the TV screen or you might miss something. If you haven’t watched the show yet, you are missing out. Check out the top 5 reasons to watch the third season.
5. Olivia Pope, played by the gorgeous Kerry Washington, is the main character in the show. She runs a PR crisis firm called Olivia Pope and Associates where they are hired to fix problems, represent their clients and make sure they have a good reputation with the public. Olivia Pope is brilliant and there is hardly a problem that she cannot solve. She also has a scandal of her own -- she is involved in a crazy love affair with the President of the United States, who she previously worked for during his campaign.
4. The cases that Olivia Pope and Associates have to fix are usually political scandals. One particular case that stood out during the second season was when they were assigned to find a missing reverend. They found him dead, and he was naked on top of a woman. He died while he was having sex with his mistress of fifteen years. Olivia and the reverend’s wife wanted to preserve his legacy so they moved the body to his own bed and made it look like he died in his sleep while lying next to his wife.
3.Olivia Pope’s wardrobe is to die for.
2. Cyrus Beene is President Grant’s chief of staff and also his friend. He’s a gay Republican and he’s married to his husband James, who is a journalist. His own husband called him a “political animal” because Cyrus will stop at nothing to make sure that the president looks good to the American public. He even tried to get his own husband killed because he was going to testify in court about election rigging, which Cyrus was involved in.
1. Finally, the cliff hanger of the second season is the reason why you should watch Scandal’s third season. We come to find out that the man that runs the CIA division, B613, is Olivia’s father. His name is Rowan and he has been plotting against Olivia and the president because he felt that their relationship will endanger the presidency. Also, Olivia and President Fitz's relationship is out in the open and her father has something to do with it.
Scandal will be airing on Thursday nights at 10 on ABC. The season premiere on October 3 will definitely be something to watch.
