Mellie Learns America Has Made Its Choice and It Is Not Her
Mellie (Bellamy Young) is not stunned for too long after the Presidential election results say she has lost. She springs into action requesting that California's votes be checked for accuracy as she does not believe they were calculated correctly. Olivia (Kerry Washington) stops her from pursuing a recount. She tells Mellie that America has made its choice and pleads with her to make a tough call to Francisco Vargas to concede in this scene from the 'Scandal' Season 6 Premiere, 'Survival of the Fittest.' However, Mellie may have dodged a bullet as Francisco is assassinated after being elected President. Watch the premiere of "Scandal: The Final Season" THURSDAY October 5th at 9|8c on ABC.
