Scandal Season 2 ended with Olivia being outed as President Grant’s mistress only to be ushered into her car where her her estranged father — B613 head, Rowan — was waiting for her.
In a sneak peek of the Season 3 premiere airing October 3, the former fixer is taken to a bunker to talk with Fitz. Apparently Liv used her super-secret White House lockdown password to get in touch with the Prez in said bunker, and he is not happy about it.
“You don’t work in the White House anymore, you’re not in the bubble anymore. If there was an attack — terrorist, chemical, nuclear — I can’t get you. You understand? You’re on the outside, you’re dead!” he yells, noting that the NSA will no longer allow him to protect his honey in the case of a national emergency.
But leave it to Olivia to remind Fitz of the more pressing situation at hand. “We’re already under attack,” she retorts, referring to her recent outing as his mistress. “My name is out there!”
“We need to make a plan!” Olivia declares before bringing in a very surprising form of backup. To find out just who is part of Liv’s new agenda, check out the full sneak peek below.
Scandal Season 3 premieres on October 3 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
