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.
Love or hate the show, Olivia and Fitz, collectively known as Olitz, are the driving force behind its success, and unlike shows like Sleepy Hollow, Scandal is smart enough to take advantage of that.
Season four left us with Olitz embraced in a scorching kiss and hope of the pair actually becoming cannon in season five will be the carrot on a stick ABC dangles in front of fans to make sure they tune in.
How I wish Fox and Sleepy Hollow‘s writers were as smart.
Oh well. Fans will have to decide which show they’ll watch live and which they’ll DVR as the two will go head to head this fall when Scandal returns on September 24 and Sleepy Hollow debuts a week later on October 1.
