Title: Owner of Pope & Associates
Played by: Kerry Washington
After successfully helping Fitz Grant win his campaign for President of the United States, Olivia launched her crisis management consultancy Olivia Pope & Associates. She’s become the go-to gal for D.C. politicians and public figures in crisis. We can only imagine the retainers Olivia deservedly collects. (I mean, just look at that wardrobe!) Olivia has no qualms bending the rules to help her clients. She sees the world in gray, rather than black and white, leading to more sympathetic relationships with her clients — and a moral flexibility that satisfyingly entertains. Her team proudly owns their role as “gladiators in suits,” loyally following their white-hatted leader.

TV Fanatic: Katie, I watch The Walking Dead and all these other intense shows and I don’t generally scream at my TV but I was screaming at the TV when Quinn was with Charlie. ‘No, no, no! Get away from her! I don’t like it!’
KL: I always like the girl in the horror movie. ‘Don’t open that door! Don’t answer that door!’ And everyone is like screaming at the TV like, ‘Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Don’t kiss him.’ I mean it was just such a fun storyline that came out last week and my tweeting was blowing up like crazy. I think my entire Twitter page for like half an hour was just, ‘No!’
And then they might throw in a couple of like, ‘Wow. That was really steamy.’ Or like, ‘Whoa. That’s Bryan MacKenzie from Father of the Bride.’ You know, people are just devastated that Huck and Quinn are on not great terms at the moment.

ETonline: Not to use a bad pun, but your casting on this show was like the mother of all secrets – what was the casting process like?
Khandi Alexander: Mark Wilding, the executive producer, called me and he said, “I can’t tell you anything about her, but you are going to play mama Pope. But you can’t tell anybody. Yes or no?” It was a yes and I told no one. I was thrilled they called, I’m elated to play this role.
Will Huck find out about Quinn killing that guy on Scandal? — Heather
NATALIE: It won’t be long before Huck realizes that something is off with his protégée. “This Quinn is different than Quinn in Season 1, and she’s learned a lot of things about covering up,” Katie Lowes says. “But obviously covering a murder is going to be very hard to do.” Still, just because Quinn killed off OPA’s only lead in the Remington investigation, Lowes teases that Olivia Pope will find a way to get to the truth about the plane crash.
THE PERFORMER | Bellamy Young
THE SHOW | Scandal
THE EPISODE | “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie”
THE AIRDATE | November 14, 2013
THE PERFORMANCE | Recently hailed for her performance as a fun drunk, Scandal‘s Young this week got to embrace a gamut of emotions — including a character she never before inhabited, that of a younger Mellie loved by her husband Fitz. Yet soon enough, that sunny tone was darkened by a sinister cloud, when Fitz’s father Jerry drunkenly and brazenly raped his daughter-in-law.
Afterward, Young depicted a steel magnolia barely able to walk steady in the wake of the unspeakable, someone barely to utter the lie she would tell. And then, when the happy news of an awaited pregnancy was tainted by the truth that perhaps bore it? We saw the pain Mellie shall forever conceal.
Life wasn’t much easier in Mellie’s current timeline, as Fitz yet again forsake her. “If you knew the sacrifices that I have made, the things I have given up and the pieces of myself I have given up for you…,” she said to the mate who too often has left her alone. “You make me beg for scraps when I have done nothing but fight for you.” Though POTUS may forever be in the dark about Mellie’s scandalous secret, Young made sure that we the viewers are now all too aware.
