Tony Goldwyn’s got a few thoughts about who may have snitched about the president’s affair with Olivia Pope on “Scandal.”
All hell broke loose in Olivia’s world when it was revealed that she was sleeping with President Fitzgerald Grant (played by Tony). Fans have been speculating about who may have uncovered the illicit secret, and Tony shared his obvious suspicions before second-guessing them.
“Oh God … I guess I thought it was Mellie, but that seemed too obvious, so I really had no idea. Cyrus or Mellie … I just couldn’t believe it,” Tony told The Huffington Post. “I was so shocked. We read the scripts together for the first time at the table read, and when that happened, everyone jumped up.”
Viewers won’t have to wait all season to wait all season to find out who spilled the tea on Olivia and Fitz. In fact, Tony said the leaker will be revealed “very soon. And you will be really shaken by it.”
Although Mellie may not have tipped the media off to Fitz’s affair, Tony said that she will be pulling off some big tricks when “Scandal” returns October 3. “Bellamy Young (who plays Mellie) is so brilliant. And in Season 3, she gets to do some stuff … I mean, already, she’s got some stuff that’s just amazing,” said Tony.
When season 2 closed out, Olivia dumped Fitz and he went crawling back to his wife, but does Tony think the president and the first lady can make their marriage work? “No. I don’t. I don’t think so. That’s just me. I have no idea what Shonda’s intending, but I don’t see it. I think Fitz knows that he and Olivia are supposed to be together,” he stated. “whether they ever will be is anyone’s guess.”
He continued, “I think once you know what he knows about Olivia, there’s no way you can backtrack and settle for a relationship like the one he has with Mellie. It’s just too toxic and too fraudulent on a lot of levels.”
