In celebration of Scandal’s One Year Anniversary this Friday, here’s my favorite team OFC moment from Sweet Baby.
Cyrus Beene: “The Band is back together.”
Everything about this scene was on point!
Olivia had on her Gladiator Armor on - her signature white Tory Burch trench. (It’s proven fact that Scandal’s costume designer Lyn Paolo is truly amazing! Olivia always wears white when she’s in gladiator mode.) There was Liv saying “Hello. Hi. How are you?” to Cyrus.
What I especially love is what Fitz and Olivia first said to each other in this scene. “Livvie.” “Mr. President.” (We all know how much he likes HER saying that, right?)
That smile though? That strut though?
Let’s focus on how Fitz told her he couldn’t thank her enough for taking on the Amanda Tanner case when she had the Sully St James thing on her hands. This is foreshadowing to “I watch for you”, wasn’t it?
Then there was this moment…”You know there’s only one person I love.”
I was hooked right then and there! You can see them thinking back to all their moments together before she left the White House. It’s all in their eyes. Look at Fitz. Look at Olivia!
What I ALSO enjoyed about this scene was what Olivia said to them “I’ll handled it. Consider it handled.” You gotta love how that phrase caught on with the Scandal fandom, right? I say “Consider it handled” all the time now.

Simply put this is what made me root for Team OFC. It’s OFC or bust, Gladiators!
So what’s in it for you, Gladiators? We can’t have an anniversary celebration without some gifts, can we? I’m giving away FIVE copies of the TV Guide Magazine. Stay tuned for details THIS Friday!
