Mellie (Bellamy Young) calls Marcus (Cornelius Smith Jr.) to let him know Cyrus offered her the chance to be Vice President. She wants his advice on whether or not to take the offer as she can no longer trust Olivia's judgment. Marcus feels as Vice President she would have the freedom to have a personal life. This sounds tempting to Mellie as that would mean they could be together. However, there is still a chance she could be president now and wonders if she should take it. Marcus makes it clear he did and still would choose Mellie. She just has to choose him in this scene from 'Scandal' Season 6 Episode 2, 'Hardball.' Watch the premiere of "Scandal: The Final Season" THURSDAY October 5th at 9|8c on ABC.
