It's been a little less than three months since November's bombshell-filled midseason finale, which saw Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) walk away from her relationship with President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) and terminate a pregnancy of which Fitz was not even aware. In the world of the show, however, six months have passed, and the Olivia we meet as new episodes resume is a changed woman in many respects. Her former lover is likewise forlorn, abandoned by both Olivia and estranged wife Mellie (Bellamy Young).
Stellar golf and the majesty of the Northern California coastline -- it can mean only one thing: the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Among the golfers taking on this scenic though treacherous gauntlet of three courses over four days are Jason Day, Lucas Glover, Hunter Mahan, Jordan Spieth and defending champion Brandt Snedeker.
Fan-favorite singers from past seasons return to mentor and sing with the contestants as the first round of performers find out from judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. who will get to stay in the competition in the new two-hour episode "Showcase No. 2: Judges Vote." Ryan Seacrest is host.
The Season 12 fall finale left many storylines up in the air, so hopefully the winter premiere will answer our burning questions: What’s the deal with Owen and Riggs? Are Maggie and Andrew headed toward a hookup? Are Jackson and April headed toward a breakup? Will Jo accept Alex’s proposal? How do Meredith and Amelia move past their explosive fight? Denzel Washington will wade through the drama when he helms the episode in his TV directorial debut.
