WATCH: Kerry Washington Consoles The Muppets' Kermit the Frog After His 'Tough Breakup' from Miss Piggy

Originally posted 08/14/2015 12:00PM

Is there anything that Kerry Washington can't fix?

In a new promo for The Muppets, the Scandal star gets together with her new network mates Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy to welcome them to ABC, and she finds out firsthand that there's still a lot of tension between the two in the wake of their recent split.

After Washington, 38, mentions to Piggy that she cut off her on her ex's line, the Muppets star retorts, "He stepped on my dreams!" before making a dramatic exit.

With four seasons of Fitz and Olivia's on-again/off-again relationship drama under her belt, Washington knows heartache when she sees it, so she gives the "It's Not Easy Bein' Green" singer the opportunity to tell her why he's blue.

Scandal's Bellamy Young: Fitz Kicking Mellie out of the White House Was 'Monstrous'

Originally posted 05/15/2015 05:30PM

For a while, it seemed like everything was coming up Mellie on Scandal.

Played to steely perfection by Bellamy Young, the first lady overcame the tragic loss of her son, ditching her bathrobe and Uggs for her usual power skirt. She put her ambitions ahead of her husband's and said out loud what we've been thinking for four seasons: She should run for president. She and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) shared tender moments as he threw his support behind her. She won her election for senator.

But it all came crashing down in Thursday night's finale: Rowan (Joe Morton) blackmailed her into facilitating the slaughter of an entire grand jury. Fitz, disgusted, kicked her out of the White House. He reunited with Olivia (Kerry Washington), sealing their renewed romance with a steamy kiss.

The finale of Scandal gave us a happy ending – and a cliffhanger that will have us spending our summer wondering if a fan-favorite character lives or dies.

The Gladiators took down B613, if not in the way they'd originally intended. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) finally picked her man. And Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) won her election but lost her husband.

That's right, Olitz shippers: Season 4 ended with Liv and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) locked in a steamy kiss.
