9. Back on the campaign trail and up to no good.
Despite all of the craziness in the background, First Lady Mellie Grant still has her eyes on the prize: Getting Fitz re-elected.
“There will be all sorts of machinations trying to get us back in the White House for another four years,” said Bellamy Young, who plays Mellie. “We will be joined by the amazingly talented Jon Tenney, who will throw a wrench in the works in the very best of ways.”
But what exactly will Jon’s role be on the show? There are some whispers that Mellie might have an affair of her own, but Bellamy is playing coy about those speculations. She did say, however, that fans will be “amazed” by what he does.
