at . Comments

Scandal Season 2 premieres on Thursday, September 27. And leading in to the return of this fun Shonda Rhimes drama, many viewers have a single question on their minds:

Who the heck is Quinn Perkins?

When we last left Olivia Pope and company, they learned that Katie Lowes' character was NOT who she had claimed to be, leaving a major mystery for fans to ponder all summer long. Fortunately, the wait will end in just a few weeks: we'll learn the identity of Perkins on the upcoming premiere. From there...

"That question spins us into a new, larger scandal that we're following," Rhimes tells TV Guide. "The question becomes: What happened to Quinn Perkins to make her this way and who was responsible?"

Lowes, meanwhile, tells the publication that the reveal is "like nothing you can imagine."

Elsewhere, Tony Goldwyn spoke to Entertainment Weekly and teased what's to come with his President Grant, who was shocked by Olivia's solution to his sex scandal at the conclusion of Scandal Season 1.

“Fitz is totally heartbroken and, I think, betrayed,” Goldwyn says. “He’d obviously made a decision; he was ready to resign the presidency and be with the woman he loved. Olivia and his wife stole that from him. They pulled the rug out from under him and [now] he hates her.”

But, of course, he also loves her. And that isn't changing any time soon. Previews the actor:

"That magnetic pull will certainly bring them together in some way - and I don’t know how yet.”

Count us among those who can't wait to find out.

Scandal Quotes

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.
