While I’m not the world’s biggest Scandal or Olitz fan, I do respect ABC and the show’s writers for being smart enough to give the fans what they want.
Unlike shows like Empire, which recently unveiled a promo clip full of scenes from their upcoming season, Scandal’s promo clip instead features nothing but love scenes of past Olitz rendezvous, including some that actually managed to make even me blush.
