In the Season 7 premiere of Scandal, “Watch Me,” Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) has been President of the United States for 100 days and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is proving she can run the world. It’s not easy, but then it never is. To avoid an international incident, Olivia — who has longer, straighter hair this season — makes “her toughest call yet.”
Washington will live tweet the season premiere on Thursday. As she wrote to her fans on social media: “I’m so excited for you all to see it. Can’t wait to be sharing this wild @shondalandtv ride with you again.” Season 7 is the final season of Scandal, which airs Thursdays at 9pm on ABC.
❤️ Now more than ever, I am truly grateful for the people and places that encourage my heart to love more & to laugh more. I’m so grateful for our #scandalfam and for all you beautiful #gladiators 😍 I cannot wait to LIVE TWEET the Season 7 (holy moly!) premiere this Thursday. I’m so excited for you all to see it. Can’t wait to be sharing this wild @shondalandtv ride with you again. XOXOXOXOX #scandal
