Scandal finally arrives back in the UK weeks after it aired in the US.
The fifth season of the show picks up after the jaw-dropping fourth season finale with Olivia (Kerry Washington) in the White House with Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Mellie (Bellamy Young) pushed out of the inner circle along with Cyrus (Jeff Perry) who was fired as Fitz’s Chief of Staff.
With Liz North (Portia de Rossi) now at the side of the President, it’s all change as we head into the brand new season of the addictive drama.
The first episode of the new season is Heavy Is The Head. When the Royals visit the White House, President Fitz uses the opportunity to discuss foreign policy. But when a fatal accident causes a rift in the negotiations, it may cause a rift within Fitz and Olivia as well.
