1. Olivia’s emotional background explained
Olivia Pope has a lot on her plate when season 3 of “Scandal” returns on February 27, but one thing that never leaves the back of her running script is figuring out what happened to Mama Pope. And as “Scandal” delves deeper into that mystery, viewers will get a better understand of why Olivia thinks the way she does.
“It’s definitely on her mind,” Kerry Washington told The Hollywood Reporter. “What was most interesting for me was the more that we’re learning about who her parents are, the more of a window we have into Olivia’s emotional reality. I really like that, and that’s a lot about what this next part of the season is about.”
