Olivia Jake Scandal Returns TGIT

The second half of ‘Scandal’ returns to ABC on Feb. 11, and it looks like Olivia Pope is fired up and back to her old gladiator self…

…or is she?

via Variety:

In the first teaser, released Thursday by ABC, Olivia tells presidential hopeful Mellie (Bellamy Young) that she’s not running her campaign.

On the romance side, Jake (Scott Foley) tells Olivia, “I don’t like waiting” to which she replies, “Then don’t,” proceeding to jump into his arms for a full-blown make out session. Meanwhile, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) is all alone in the Oval Office and when Abby (Darby Stanchfield) asks Olivia if she misses the president, she says no. However, by the end of the video, Liv phones into the White House.

The trailer also speaks to “Scandal” fans who are ready to get back on Twitter for Thursday night #TGIT trending. With the hashtag #SuitUpGladiators promoted in the video, the voiceover teases, “Say hello to a whole new jam … It’s time for your jaw to get re-acquainted with the floor.”

We can’t wait. Watch the teaser below.
