On the heels of a shocking reveal in Scandal Season 3, Episode 5: “More Cattle, Less Bull” — surprise, Fitz may have killed Olivia’s mother! — there is another potential severed relationship ahead for Ms. Pope. According to the synopsis for Episode 6: “Icarus” (airing November 7), Harrison could be turning his back on Pope & Associates.
In addition to Harrison perhaps going against the Gladiators, Olivia will also make a vital decision that will “affect all of her relationships in the White House” — including, but not limited to Fitz, we presume. Considering that Cyrus and Mellie are still plotting against Josie Marcus, chances are, Liv’s problems surround helping her, but we’ll have to wait and see. Maybe she’s just going against Cyrus in general — it wouldn’t be the first time — or the Operation Remington information that Huck and Jake brought her really sets things into motion. Either way, it’s going to be quite a battle.
Check out the full synopsis below, then speculate for yourself: Are the Gladiators about to fall apart, or will this test just bring everyone closer together?
“Olivia must make a very important decision that will affect all of her relationships in the White House, and Harrison’s allegiance to the Gladiators is tested. Meanwhile, the team continues to prep Josie Marcus while Cyrus and Mellie plot against her.”
Scandal airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
