What could season six of Scandal possibly have in store for us?
The latest key art for the show promises that “the balance of power is about to shift,” which sounds like it at least partially refers to the US presidential election—the results of which we’re still waiting on.
When the show returns in January, we’ll learn whether the new president will be Mellie Grant or Francisco Vargas, which will also tell us just how much power Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is going to continue to have in Washington D.C. Could she be losing her hold on the country’s most powerful players when the show finally returns?
Knowing Scandal as we like to think we do, there’s probably many meanings to this tagline, and to that secretive, all-knowing look Liv is giving us. She’s got something up her sleeve for sure, but we couldn’t possibly tell you what it may be.
What we can tell you is that this season premiere cannot get here fast enough!
Scandal returns Thursday, January 19 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
