This New “Scandal” Promo Will Make Your Heart Stop

Want to get a sneak peek at Olivia Pope & Associate’s return before the episode airs on Feb. 27? It’s handled!

It’s been more than two months since the last new episode of Scandal aired, and finally, we’re less than two weeks away from the white hot drama’s return on Feb. 27.

ABC has started releasing clips and photos from the spring premiere, titled “Ride, Sally, Ride,” and since Gladiators are thirstier than Olivia after an all-night jam-making session with Fitz, here’s a breakdown of the brand new teaser (above), frame-by-fantastic-frame. ABC / Via YouTube.com
