Scandal is always raising the stakes, and somehow each episode seems to pack even more WTF moments than the one that came before. Can the momentum possibly keep building in the spring half of Season 3? Well, according to this promo, Shonda Rhimes and co. have it handled.

Scandal returns on February 27, 2014, and when it does, "it rises to a whole new level of crazy," or so this promo promises. We don't get many hints of what's going to happen, but we do see Harrison worried about some sort of threat, a quick shot of Jake to reminded us that he's Command now, and a meeting between Mellie and Olivia that is heavily documented by reporters. Hmm. We wonder what that's about. Is Mellie attempting to woo Olivia back to the Grant reelection team? That seems pretty likely to us, and now that Liv knows Fitz didn't kill her mom, maybe she'll be willing to take the offer. We hope that's where this is going, because we'd love to see Liv and team back in the politics side of things.

Check it out for yourself below!
