Scandal is almost back – and it's taking a big leap forward.
"We start six months after the last episode ended, so you sort of flash-forward," Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant, told PEOPLE and a group of reporters at the U.S. Premiere of Debbie Allen's Freeze Frame Gala Performance in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

In a revealing essay written for More magazine, Goldwyn recounts how his mother Jennifer Howard put aside her acting career for his father (and later his stepfather).
"The theater was in Mom's blood. She did some prestigious shows … but she eventually gave up acting," Goldwyn writes. "Perhaps she didn't have what it takes. But my suspicion is that she lacked the support she needed from my dad (the film producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr.) and felt that her primary duty was to be a wife and mother.

This week, the comedy series Angie Tribeca premiered on TBS. And while the show is the brainchild of a comedy power couple, Steve Carell and Nancy Walls Carell, star Rashida Jones is herself the daughter of two famous people: music producer Quincy Jones and Mod Squad actress Peggy Lipton. (They shot a scene together!)

In the final installment of Shonda Rhimes "very first" tv show – AKA Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious spoof – frontrunner Hunter Ulysses Whitman (Tony Goldwyn) faces a last minute rival.
While the Scandal parody's other candidates have all mysteriously been expelled, Goldwyn's Hunter remains untouched. Even with goodie-two-shoes Izzy (Portia de Rossi) now in competition, the jock still nabs victory with 359 votes to her zero.

The road to the White House – er, the student council presidency is a long and twisty one.

In a sneak peek of Thursday's Scandal episode exclusive to PEOPLE, the gladiator-in-chief tearfully feigns disbelief when she catches President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn), press secretary Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) and chief of staff Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) discussing her dastardly dad Eli Pope's (Joe Morton) escape.
"Escape" is putting it politely – Command sauntered out of federal prison with the requisite paperwork after Olivia got Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) to forge Fitz's signature, freeing him so he could blackmail Congress and save the political fixer from having to testify or – even worse – marry the love of her life.

If you're a man working for Shonda Rhimes, you might have to show a little more skin than your female counterparts.
Scandal's Tony Goldwyn recently said he and co-star Scott Foley are required to do more shirtless scenes than they necessarily would chose on their own.
"Shonda's rule is, 'Women can wear whatever they want. The guys have to take their clothes off whenever I tell them to,' " Goldwyn told Fox 5 New York. "So Scott and I every week, we'd be reading these scripts out loud, we do it all together, and one of us would turn the page and our shirt would be off so we’re like 'You're on deck,' 'You're up.' "

Last week, she and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) seemed to finally be making strides toward a healthy relationship – until footage of Olivia and the still-married leader of the free world's sexy PDA made its way to national TV.
In an exclusive sneak peek of Thursday's episode, Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) tells Fitz that the White House has ruled out an external security breach, meaning someone on the inside betrayed him. But Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) warns the leak is "not the issue."
"I've got a room full of press getting rowdier by the minute. There's blood in the water," she says. "We're gonna need a game plan, we're gonna need a statement, we're gonna need … a bigger boat."
