It’s almost time. We are less than a month away from the Season 5 premiere of Scandal. Hold on to your white hats, popcorn, and red wine because we are going to be in for a bumpy ride. The season ended relatively peaceful, but with a huge surprise for everyone. Olivia has chosen Fitz (for now), but since Scott Foley is confirmed for this season, we can expect Jake to return and to try to win her love. Olivia has to choose between two extremely attractive men, so which one do you think she will pick this season?
Are you Team Fitz? He is a married man, but he has said before that he would give everything up to have a relationship with Liv. Liv ultimately chose him in the season 4 finale, but without a divorce from Mellie, their status is still questionable. Fitz is willing to go to war for Olivia, but will he risk his wife’s potential presidency? If so, is there hope for a future with the both of them in Vermont? Only time will tell.
Are you Team Jake? After spending time alone on an island together, they have undeniable chemistry. But when he departed during the season 4 finale, Olivia was now left without her “Sun.” Jake has proven that he will go to extreme lengths to keep Olivia safe, but he really doesn’t have much to give up in the first place. This serves as an advantage for him because unlike Fitz, he doesn’t have a wife, and don’t even get me started on those eyes.
