‘Scandal’ Sneak Peek: Mellie & Olivia New Besties?

Gladiators, unite! ABC’s hit show Scandal unlocked a special sneak peek of their mid-season premiere. While the cast has kept their lips zipped about what’s in store for the second half of Season 3, all it takes is 21 seconds to make the first for Kerry Washington and Co. realer. Watch the FLOTUS Mellie have an awkward lunch date with Olivia Pope, feigning friends for the cameras. Watch the expecting mommy-to-be play nice with her on-screen rival above.

Scandal FINALLY returns Feb. 27 at 10pm EST on ABC.
