What Will Happen To Olivia Pope In Scandal Season 7?
It looks like Olivia is willing to sacrifice everything for her job. In an interview with Variety, Washington revealed that "Olivia's sitting in the highest seat. Anything that jeopardizes her ability to show up for the republic is potentially a problem. Relationships are not the most important thing right now, unless that relationship serves and enhances her ability to wield her power in the ways that she needs to."
It's no secret to us that Olivia will now deal with having a massive amount of power. But, how will she handle it?
"She is going into this time and this position having been able to watch a lot of people make mistakes," Washington said, "and so hopefully she takes all of that wisdom with her and doesn't walk down the same paths."

There will also be a power struggle between Olivia and Mellie this season. While Mellie is the symbol of power to the public, Olivia needs to pull the strings in the background. So, how will the pair compromise this season?
"To make history at all, but to make history with Olivia, is a thing so delicious she couldn't have even dreamed it," Young revealed in the same interview. "There's so much kerosene they're both sitting on and they're just one little match flick away from an explosion."
