Liv's Return, an "Idealistic" Fitz and 5 More Teases About Scandal Season 4

Jeff Perry and Tony Goldwyn

Where in the world is Olivia Pope lounging on the beach? Last we saw our favorite fixer on Scandal, she had extricated herself and Jake (Scott Foley) from Shondaland's messy D.C. world following the death of Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) son Jerry. Little does anyone know, it was Rowan (Joe Morton) — not Mama Pope (Khandi Alexander) — who was behind Jerry's death, so that Fitz could win re-election and re-appoint Rowan to the B613 Command post. Harrison (Columbus Short) discovered the truth, but paid with his life.

Question: I'm wondering what you think about the scheduling of ABC's Thursday night programming. I don't even KNOW if there's a Family Hour any more, but it seems to me that Scandal is pretty heavy on the sex and violence and may not work so well at the 8 pm (Central) hour. Do you see ABC getting complaints about it and possibly switching Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder? — Jan

Returning Favorites: Inside Scandal's Shocking New Season

Kerry Washington

On a Wednesday afternoon in late August, Kerry Washington's shih tzu-Yorkie mix, Josie, is napping contentedly on a Hollywood soundstage sofa as her Emmy-nominated owner gets back to the business of being scandalous. Clad in her character Olivia Pope's trademark Armani, Washington is...well, we can't tell you what she's doing, who she's doing it with, or even where they're doing it.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."
