Is the romance between Fitz and Olivia on “Scandal” anywhere near over? Based on what we are hearing right now, the answer is a pretty defiant “no.” As a matter of fact, get ready to see all sorts of intrigue coming up when Mellie suspects that there could be something going on between the two parties again.
According to a brand-new report from E! News, this paranoia will really get started when Mellie notices that the President’s new secretary has been making some time in his schedule for phone meetings … which is something that Fitz and Olivia used for a cover for quite some time. So does this mean that the two are hooking up again? At the moment, we can’t say; and regardless of whether or not it’s happening, the First Lady still has a reason to be upset.
Personally, we expect that while Olivia and Fitz are far from over, it will take a little bit of time for their romance to become hot once again. Kerry Washington’s character is going to be understandably devastated following the rejection Thursday night, and this will still lie in her heart even if she does meet a new suitor (played by Scott Foley) that does just about everything that he can to appeal to her romantic side. Foley’s character is sticking around for a while, so if Fitz does want to try and make something work here, he is going to have a little bit of major competition.
