If the TV show Scandal were a shape, you’d better believe it would be a big, warped triangle, thanks to the strange bedfellows getting cozy on the ABC show. Now in Season 3, we’ve seen enough of the Fitz-Jake-Olivia three-sider to understand that things are never simple in Washington, D.C. But they’re about to get even more complicated, according to a TVLine spoiler!

We just recently found out that Mellie was raped by Fitz’s dad, way back when Mr. President was in the running for office in California, and we’ve changed our views on the FLOTUS since. Is she still terrifying? Absolutely, but we now understand where some of her anger toward Fitz’s less than cuddly attitude comes from. Though he apologized on television to his oft-estranged wife, that might not be enough.

While one fan asked TVLine if perhaps Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) might be a good option for Mellie to move on to, Michael Ausiello had other thoughts on the matter. “[I]f my hunch is correct, the new fortysomething character the show is currently casting — a handsome, charismatic fella named Andrew — will be keeping company with Bellamy Young’s love-starved FLOTUS,” the spoiler king hints in his newest column.

And just who does he have in mind to get into Mellie’s oval office? Oh, just Denny Duquette. Er, we mean, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. That’s one coup that would knock us off our feet.

What do you think of Mellie possibly moving on from Fitz? What if it was Jeffrey Dean Morgan doing the moving? Tell us below!
