News & Interviews for Scandal: Season 5
Sally Langston's talk show continues to be one of the best parts of the show. Best quote: "He's inviting us to skip with him down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah."
FINALLY, Scandal is back. So wrap yourself in that wine cardigan and make yourself a big bowl of popcorn. It's handled.
If tonight's action-packed season premiere is any indication, we're in for some heavy-duty - and most welcome - gladiating in the weeks to come.
