I remember the first time I heard some friends discussing this series, I became enthralled by my bestie’s brief explanation of it. So the movie freak in me set out to hunt for the series and I definitely wasn’t disappointed (although I had a few heartbreaks here and there, but that’s inevitable isn’t it? *sigh*). Anyway, if you are a fan of the sizzling chemistry between Olivia Pope and Fitz, then this season 5 is everything you have been dreaming of and maybe even more. The ABC political thriller is all set to bring the lover’s steamy affair when the show premieres today. The official synopsis of this season suggests plenty of “Olitz” moments as they both start planning their future together. If you all remember (at least my fellow Scandal fans), in the season 4 finale, Fitz found out that Mellie helped Rowan Pope for her own political gain, resulting in the horrible massacre of the members of the grand jury who were investigating the covert government agency B613. So in the premiere episode, the president of the United States slaps his wife Mellie with a divorce notice, forcing her to take a few more furious decisions as the show proceeds through season 5. “The world had been fairly blown apart for everybody except Olivia and Fitz” says show creator, Shonda Rhimes at the press tour of the Television Critics Association. “Everybody else was in a fairly blown apart place … we pick up right there in that environment and we see what happens next,” she added. So for those of you still behind and trying hard to catch up, well here is a recap of the official synopsis of the Season 5 Premiere: Olivia and Fitz are back together again and enjoying every scandalous moment together (someone please ring the bell), while Cyrus, Mellie and Huck are all still dealing with the aftermath of helping Command. Meanwhile, when a visit from the Queen of Caldonia and her family turns into tragedy, Olivia is hired to make sure the Royal family’s private life stays private. I think I might be getting way too excited already. *stands up and does a happy dance* Make sure to be back here for timely updates as the season begins.     About the Writer: Eniola Adeniji is a woman after God’s own heart, a motivational Writer, Speaker, Fashion and Photography addict.

  • The celebration of this adulterous love affair, even by professing Christians, is telling. God purify us in these last days.
