Gladiators! Are your jaws still on the floor from the Scandal Season 6 premiere episode? Was this everything you could have wanted and more from Scandal 2017? Our girl Shonda Rhimes most definitely hit a home run with “Survival of the Fittest” and is now leading us in to Scandal Season 6, Episode 2 appropriately titled “Hardball.” Let us dig in to what is in store for us on Thursday!
As we all know as loyal Gladiators, one must NEVER underestimate Olivia Pope, especially if she has been wronged. Since the shocking reveal that Senator Vargas was assassinated on Election Night, Mellie Grant lost the race and the whistleblowing voicemail naming Cyrus Bean as the reason for the assassination, a lot of questions have risen about.
At what length will Olivia go to stop Cyrus from ascending to the highest office in the United States of America? Why is Quinn undercover as an FBI agent on a crime scene? Will Cyrus really kill Mellie after she asks him face to face?
The major point this season will be bringing down Cyrus and helping Mellie take her rightful place as President of the United States, but this show is called Scandal and there will be plenty of twists and turns to get us in the direction we want to be in.
If the preview for Episode 2 of Scandal Season 6 is any indication of how the season is going to go, I would highly suggest investing in a winery because you’ll need the biggest bottle of red wine to get through Scandal Season 6!
Scandal Season 6 airs every Thursday night at 9pm EST on the ABC Network as part of the “TGIT” lineup. If you miss an episode of Scandal Season 6, or need a recap from what happened, you can always check Gossip & Gab right after the show airs!
