The theme for season 2 of Scandal is apparently "Dirty little secrets always come out" as the new poster below states.

What secrets? The first one, which will be addressed in the first episode of season 2 next week, is who Quinn Perkins is.

What else? Well, taking a look at the poster, it's clear that things between Olivia Pope and the President definitely aren't over.

As showrunner Shonda Rhimes states:

"I think it's a very fraught relationship... I feel like that couple, they clearly have this relationship that is very permanent, that's not going to go anywhere, and yet the obstacles that keep them apart are huge and fairly insurmountable. [His wife] Mellie [Bellamy Young] is pregnant and there's a lot going on."

Also, Guillermo Diaz, who plays Huck, has said that his ex-CIA killer's past will also be further explored in flashbacks... to reveal Huck's past that will "just blow people's minds."

There's also the First Lady and her own motivations. Bellamy Young who plays First Lady Mellie has said that 

"Mellie wants to be president down the road, she wants eight years with Fitz, four years off then she wants to run, no joke... She's smart enough, she knows what it all entails, she definitely has a point of view and she wants to be in charge. She's not good at interpersonal relations, but she's great at the game... It's fine if he loves Olivia but Mellie just wants to be president, that's the bottom line."

Young also says that the season premiere will contain a "huge reveal" for her character. Hmmm...

And now that we know Cyrus is the mastermind behind Amanda Tanner's death, looking ahead to next season, will others eventually learn the truth, and will whomever does, play a significant role in season 2?

Rhimes had this to say in response:

The answer to both of those questions is yes. There's a level of power that Cyrus is playing with at this moment that allows him to distance himself from the actual acts of doing certain things, and possibly gives him a little bit of leeway in his mind. He really does think that he is doing what's best for the country. I absolutely believe Cyrus has a line that he won't cross. Cyrus is a patriot who really loves his country and really believes in the presidency. In a weird way, that's his flaw. His patriotism has taken him to some dark places.

Season 2 of Shonda Rhimes' Scandal, starring Kerry Washington, returns next week Thursday, September 27, on ABC, with a few cast additions/changes, like Norm Lewis signing up for a recurring role as Olivia Pope's ex-boyfriend, Elise Neal will play an attorney with secrets, Joshua Malina has been promoted to series regular, and Henry Ian Cusick not returning to the hit ABC drama for Season 2.

And when season 2 starts, you can bet that we'll pick up with our Scandal talkback sessions right where we left off last season.
