The bad news? We still must wait many weeks for the return of Scandal Season 3.
The good news? ABC is at least whetting our appetite for more Gladiator action by releasing a sneak peek at the February 27 return episode via Facebook.
It features Olivia sitting down with Mellie and wondering why the heck the First Lady requested a lunch date, as curious photographers snap shots of the enemies from the sidewalk.
Mellie says she wants to make a "respectable woman" out of her husband's lover, but call us crazy for thinking she has an ulterior motive.
Watch Scandal online to catch up prior to this month's return and get your first look at the upcoming installment now:
