Scandal Spoiler Photos: Season 3, Episode 7 — “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie”

President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) and his first lady, Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) have had quite a rollercoaster ride through three seasons of Scandal, but in Season 3, Episode 7: “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie,” we’ll see them getting closer than ever — though it may just be for show.

In tonight’s episode (airing at 10 p.m. ET on ABC), Mellie tries to remedy her public backlash with a hard-hitting news interview. Based on the spoiler photos, she’s doing that with Fitz by her side, even holding hands!

Meanwhile, the Gladiators unite with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) — and Olivia doesn’t look too happy about it. Perhaps Operation Remington has her down?

Check out the full synopsis below, then check out the photos in the gallery.

“Mellie is still trying to recover from the public backlash of the last year so she decides to do a hard-hitting news interview. Meanwhile, as Cyrus continues to plot against Sally Langston, we learn how Fitz, Mellie and Cyrus became a team. Back at OPA, Huck continues to push Quinn away, but Quinn’s bloodlust could get her into some dangerous situations.”
