Scandal Season 2, Episode 16 - Top Of The Hour Episode Description And Photos

As you may have noticed, once again, there was no new episode of Scandal last night. We're amidst a month-long hiatus between new episodes for the ABC drama series. Rest assured, the show will be back later this month. We still have a few weeks to wait for it, and we now have an episode descriptions and some photos to go along with the promo ABC showed us as the end of the last new episode. Vague spoilers ahead!

Olivia and Fitz may be on the outs, their paths continue to cross. The promo we saw for "Top of the Hour," showed Olivia dealing with a major scandal. From what ABC says in the episode description, it sounds like it involves the White House.

"Top of the Hour" - Olivia finds herself in the middle of a media storm, but this time she's on the opposing side of the oval office when Fitz's pick for Supreme Court Justice is caught in a torrid affair with Liv's new client, high-powered CEO Sarah Stanner (Lisa Edelstein). Meanwhile, Olivia and Jake continue their flirtatious relationship, while Huck takes Quinn under his wing and Harrison and Abby try to figure out where they stand with their friendship. Back in the White House, Cyrus and Mellie continue to fight for Fitz's attention, but someone else may already have it, on ABC's "Scandal," THURSDAY, MARCH 21 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

We got a glimpse of Lisa Edelstein in the promo, but we didn't see her in any of the photos released for the episode. In fact, no one from Olivia's side of the story was featured, as all of them (so far) focus on what's going on in the White House, with Fitz, Cyrus and Mellie. The closest thing we come to Olivia in these is this scene, which has Jake delivering an envelope to Fitz.

What's he giving her? More information about Olivia? Information that leaves out his interests in Olivia, I'm guessing?

We also get a glimpse of Mellie and Fitz together with the baby…


And here's Cyrus looking elated…
