Scandal Season 3 ended with Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) leavin' on a jet plane with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), headed for destinations unknown.
And when the fourth season picks up on Sept. 25, the head of OPA will still be MIA, judging from this newly released promo.
ABC has also released the plot synopsis for the fourth season premiere (titled "Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia"):
"Nearly two months after Olivia and Jake boarded a private jet to stand in the sun together, everything has changed. With another four years in the White House, Fitz and Cyrus are doing everything they can to make a positive impact on the nation. Meanwhile, Mellie struggles to cope with the loss of her son and the gladiators feel the impact of Olivia's absence."
