ABC’s ‘Scandal’ season 2 spoilers: After the storm

ScandalOver the past few days, we have written fairly extensively about how the fourteenth episode of “Scandal” season 2 is almost going to feel like the start of a new season, as it was added on after executive producer Shonda Rhimes created her initial 13-episode arc. There will be a massive time jump of ten months in here, and for many characters, this will serve as a chance to hit the “reset” button  and try to figure out their life after a series of actions nearly ruined the lives of many.

As you may heard already, this episode is entitled “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and the synopsis below actually carries with it some pretty massive spoilers. This is the first time, after all, that we have learned just who Scott Foley (“True Blood”) is going to be playing on the show, and it gives us a major hint about what has happened in Olivia Pope’s personal life:

“After discovering the truth behind defiance, Fitz is still struggling to figure out whom he can actually trust. Meanwhile Olivia is trying to move on with her life, and she meets a handsome stranger, Jake Weston (Scott Foley), who sparks her interest. But when Fitz and Olivia are forced to be in the same room again, real sparks fly and things get heated. Back at Pope & Associates, the team handles a new case, and for the first time they’re working with David Rosen instead of against him”

Before we arrive at this episode, however, still have two more installments to push through that should give us an idea of just what happens between Olivia and Fitz, and if there is any one event in particular that causes Olivia’s present relationship to crumble.

Are you intrigued by the prospect of Foley as an Olivia love interest? If you want to read some more on the second half of the season, you can do so over at the link here.
