Scandalites rejoice! “Scandal” is back on tonight at 10 p.m. and with all the goings on at Pope and Associates, it’s sure to be a doozy. This episode, mysteriously titled ‘Seven Fifty Two” is supposed to answer a lot of questions. Huck’s past will be explored now that he’s returned to OPA after being locked in a box in a storage facility. Olivia, of course is in the hospital after being knocked in the head by her new lover, Jake, who has a secret agenda of his own. Oh, and the President has left the White House, to check on his boo in the hospital, but according to the trailer when Olivia finds out she’s been spying on him, things don’t go so well with the reconciliation.
Here’s what we do know about tonight – there will be a new guest star – Jasika Nicole of “Fringe” fame. However we have no idea what role she’ll be playing so don’t ask.
Guillermo Diaz, who plays the ever-popular Huck, does give up a few clues to tonight’s episode He told TVguide.com that his character does go through a few changes but has the support of his colleagues at Pope and Associates.
“Something about him locked in that crate triggered something in his memory about his past, something that happened to him. When the episode starts, we’re going to see he’s just sitting in a corner of the office, rocking back and forth, and he’s continually saying this number 752. We don’t know what’s going on with him. The team is trying to snap him out of this pretty emotional state that he’s in. One by one, they sit with him and talk to him and try to figure out what’s going on. It’s really interesting because you see the relationship each of the Gladiators has with Huck, how much they care and how they feel about him.”
Diaz also says that several questions will be answered in his episode, but no idea whether one of them will be the identity of the mole. Is it Cyrus, weil, Diaz says it could be. He told TVguide.com that he’s very happy about the way this episode turned out.
“I just remember thinking [executive producer Shonda Rhimes] is a genius. When I saw who Jasika plays, I was just extremely happy. I was also mostly happy for the audience because they’re going to love this episode and love this story line. Was that vague enough?”
Well, yeah, but we’re excited about tonight, too, if onliy becuause we’ve been feenin’ for a new Scandal these last two weeks. We have no idea what we’ll do with the summer without it – probably just watch reruns and cry with our friends. In the meantime, you know where we’ll be tonight at 10, right “Scandal-lites?” Well, unless Idris Elba asks us over for dinner or something.
