Olivia Pope is back…and so is the red wine. A short (yet oh-so good!) teaser for the upcoming fourth season of Scandal was released on Monday, Sept. 8. Instead of the gladiators busy at work, however, the clip asks one simple question: "Where on Earth is Olivia Pope?"
Apparently, there's a simple answer to that. There's no location revealed, but Pope (Kerry Washington) is seen drinking from her go-to goblet of vino while relaxing on the beach with her natural curls down.
The former White House Communications Director and crisis manager, of course, isn't used to uninterrupted R&R. The phone calls continue to come in amid her absence, but not even love President "Fitz" Grant (Tony Goldwyn) can reach her.
The political drama's third season ended with Pope quitting her job at Olivia Pope & Associates and boarding a plane with her (sort of) boyfriend Jake Ballard (Scott Foley). Fitz wins a second term in office but has a breakdown. About to take off, Pope doesn't take his call.
Scandal returns Thursday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
