First look at “Scandal” Season 3 Premiere Featuring Olivia and Fitz (Frame By Frame Snapshots)
New Scandal Season 3 Sneak Preview Featuring Olivia, Fitz and Mellie
Scandal Season 3 Promo Trailer – “What. Did. You. Do?”
Here’s the frame by frame snapshots….
Fitz: Do you realize what you’ve done?
Olivia: I do.
Fitz: You pulled the fire alarm.
Olivia: I did,
Fitz: It was a one time thing, Liv – for extreme emergencies.
Olivia: I know.
Fitz: You can’t never used it again. You can’t never used it again. The codes are already being rewritten.
Olivia: I know.
Fitz: You don’t work for the White House anymore. You’re not in the bubble anymore. I can’t get the NSA to overlook you’re being issued a Providence key ever again – not now!
Olivia: I understand.
Fitz: If there was an attack – terrorist, chemical, nuclear. I CAN’T GET YOU. You understand? You’re on the outside, you’re dead. Because you already pulled the fire alarm.
Olivia: We’re already under attack. And I’m already on the outside. My name is out there. It’s out there! We need to talk about how to fix this. We need to make a plan.
Fitz: Okay. We can do that.
Olivia: When all of us is here.
Fitz: All of us?! (Side note: I legit had the same reaction!!!)
Fitz: You asked Cyrus to come?
(Door opens up! #CluchesPearls)
Mellie: So…let’s do this.
- Initial Reaction: SHUT. THE. FRONT. DOOR!
- Olivia’s meeting Fitz in a bunker guarded high-intel security!
- That strut in the hallway!
- That white coat by Burberry! That white tote by Prada!
- Olivia’s Hi just drove right into me!
- That walk around the table Olitz did, though?!
- How Olivia kept saying ”We’re”, “I know.”, “I understand.” (This took me back to the Constitution and Rose Garden scenes.Olivia’s in this together with Fitz!)
- Olivia Pope’s rocking her Gladiator Armor. All white jacket by Burberry Prorsum. She’s ready to gladiate. She’s ready to make a plan!
- I love that she kept on saying ‘we’re’ to Fitz. Although “she pulled the fire alarm” and although she’s on the outside, they’re still in this together. This gave me hope – “We’re.” (Yes, I must repeat this point as much as possible!)
- “I can’t get you!” Anyone else feel for Fitz’s frustration out of his need to protect Liv but he cannot because she doesn’t work for him anymore? Look at that man’s face as he says that.
- Hi will never, ever get old, will it? Hi said it all.
- When Mellie walked it, that was truly shut the front door epicness right? Mellie is the plan???! SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!
- Mellie’s rocking her trademark solid purple…and pearls. She’s in the plan that Fitz is not down with it. (Side note: Fitz thought Cyrus was going to walk through the door not Mellie!) Mellie doesn’t seem to want to be apart of Olivia’s plan either so I wonder what’ll she gets out of agreeing to Liv’s plan!
- ”I can’t get you.” #HOLDME
- Standing O to Lyn Paolo for all the looks in this sneak preview! Standing O to Tom Verica for the close up shots and camera angles!
- Fitz’s face when he says “Okay” though? You can feel the emotions that he’s going through at the moment, right, Gladiators?
- Fitz was ready and willing to protect Olivia at all cost especially if it includes breaking standard POTUS policy! #HOLDME
- And I still think this truth scares the heck out of Olivia!
- How Fitz’s voice broke on “I can’t get you!” How Olivia’s voice broke on “Hi” #HOLDME
- The secret’s out, Gladiators, so are YOU ready?
