The new video gives a juicy glimpse into the new episodes, which will see Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) together — so much so that Fitz hands divorce papers to his wife, First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young), in the first footage from the fifth season.
The Season 4 finale last May ended with Fitz and Olivia kissing on the White House’s balcony, taking a cliffhanging turn for on-and-off relationship.
More Gladiators are seen in the trailer, though the majority of the 30-second teaser is focused on the fan-favorite couple “Olitz” in bed with each other.
