The Fitz family and their neverending drama is front and center for Scandal Season 3, and finally we’ll see the older Fitzgerald kids, Jerry and Karen, get in on the action on Season 3, Episode 15 ("Mama Said Knock You Out") — especially after being recently reminded that Mellie isn't sure if their oldest son is Fitz's, or his fathers. Yikes.

So, why are Jerry and Karen in DC in Episode 15? The official synopsis of the episode gives us a clue:

The Grant children prepare for a live sit down television interview with Fitz and Mellie at the White House. Meanwhile, Adnan looks to Harrison for help and Rowan warns Olivia to stop investigating B613.

The fact that the Grant kids are doing a TV interview with their parents make us think the Fitzgerald family is trying to create a the illusion of a united front for Fitz's upcoming campaign. Are they still battling rumors about Fitz's affair with Olivia? Could some of the family's darker secrets have slipped out? So many questions!
