Scandal Winter Premiere Season 4 Spoilers – Where is Olivia Pope – Who Took Her?
With Scandal returning on Thursday, January 29, 2014, we may finally have some answers as to who took Olivia Pope? Or will we? When we last saw Scandal, a lot had happened. First there was Olivia’s father, Rowan’s return. While we all thought Rowan had run off into the sunset after catching on to Olivia’s plan to have him arrested for the murder of the President’s son, we should have known better. Rowan came back to share a few harsh words with his daughter, who spewed her own nasty words telling her father,
“Dad, you are not normal. You are a sick, lonely man who only knows how to lie and call it love.”
We also saw in the final five minutes of the show a very telling scene between Olivia and Jake where the couple are dancing in Olivia’s living room. Jake tells Olivia he loves her and Olivia responds by telling him she wants both Vermont with Fitz and the sun with him, followed by:
“I’m not choosing. I’m not choosing Jake. I’m not choosing Fitz. I’m choosing me. I’m choosing Olivia. And right now, Olivia is dancing. Now, you can dance with me or you can get off my dance floor. I’m fine dancing alone.”
After dancing for a bit, Jake walked out of the room and when he returned only minutes later, Olivia was gone. And this is where the January 29, 2015 episode, entitled, “run,” will pick up. Where did Olivia go? And who took her? Was it her father, once again trying to protect her or was it the Vice President of the United States, who will do anything to get Fitz to go to war with West Angola. Even if that means kidnapping Olivia, who is the only person Fitz really cares about. But will he care enough to save Olivia.
To save Olivia, Fitz has two choices, either he goes to war with West Angola or he will need to enlist the help of Jake and the Gladiators. Will Abby return to being a gladiator to help an old friend? Quinn and Huck will definitely be all in on the search to find Olivia.
Scott Foley, who plays Jake, revealed in an interview with the TV Guide,
“The physical kidnapper we have not met before. We don’t know the person. We just know [Andrew and Lizzie] are behind it. It has to do with all the stuff going on in West Angola.”
Olivia’s disappearance will definitely test Fitz. Will he be able to hold it together for the sake of his country and his mistress or will he go off the edge?
We do know Olivia’s disappearance will not be solved in one episode. This is not a case of Olivia running off to an island to live happily ever after. In the 11th episode of the season, entitled, “Where’s the Black Lady?” Olivia is still missing and the team will come together to do whatever it takes to find her and get her home safely.
One thing is for sure, if anyone can save Olivia Pope, it is the Gladiators.
Who do you think took Olivia and why? We know nothing is ever straight forward when it comes to creator, Shonda Rhimes’s television shows. She always has us sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for the other shoe to drop.
