Pope & Associates isn’t in a position these days to pick and choose clients, and on this Thursday’s Scandal (ABC, 10/9c) their latest one is a real handful. Or, based on the episode title, perhaps he’s not.
In “Say Hello to My Little Friend,” Olivia’s team stumps for a senator (guest star Patrick Fabian) who enjoys taking — and sharing — photos of his not-so-public areas. Alas, one of the blackmail-y recipients of his “largesse” has just turned up dead.
In this first-look clip, the wonderfully candid Abby “introduces” her fellow Gladiators to their less-than-estimable client, and then Olivia herself gets hands-on in handling his Weiner-ish woes. (The Office‘s Melora Hardin plays the politico’s wife.)
Elsewhere in the hour, Mellie gets involved in her own scandal with congresswoman Josephine Marcus (played by Friends‘ Lisa Kudrow).
