Watch "Scandal Pops" for Scandal Season 5, Episode 10 "It's Hard Out Here for a General"
Scandal Pops is back, Gladiators! We're here to catch you up on the biggest moments from each episode, including the much-anticipated return of Scandal.
It's been six months since we last saw Olivia Pope and crew -- and some things have definitely changed. We're talking about you, Jake and Olivia! In a shocking turn of events, Olivia returns home after a dinner with Papa Pope and finds Jake waiting on her. One thing quickly leads to the next and before you know it Jake and Liv are kissing, caressing, canoodling... and doing a few other intriguing maneuvers.
Ever think you'd see the day that Olivia and Mellie would team up to work together? They certainly didn't, but that's exactly what happens by the end of the Season 5 return of Scandal. Mellie wrote a book over the last six months, but Olivia isn't impressed with it. Mellie needs to be writing about the hard stuff, the stuff America wants to read about -- and it looks like Liv is going to help.
We're used to seeing phone calls between Olivia and Fitz take place during an episode of Scandal. In fact, the Fitz Phone was a huge part of their relationship over the years! But in the six months since Olivia moved out of the White House, it appears we may have a New Fitz Phone on our hands -- one that goes unanswered. Just ask Charlotte.
Olivia Pope & Associates spends the episode working to help the current Director of the NSA, but things just don't go their way. Their client is asked to resign. That means Fitz needs a new head of the NSA. Enter Jake Hamilton Ballard! Once this is announced, Olivia begins to put the pieces together. It wasn't a coincidence that Jake got this new job. He planned it... with some help from Papa Pope.
