Watch: Live chat with ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington

Last we saw her, she was leaving on a jet plane.

The Season 3 finale of ABC’s gasp-fest “Scandal” saw D.C. fixer Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, fly off into the sunset with sometimes suitor Jake Ballard, ignoring a call from crestfallen President Fitz. It’s not a question of if she’ll be back, but rather whether she’ll actually get a handle on a Fitz-free life.

Washington will stop by the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday to take part in a live chat at 11 a.m. PDT -- and we’ll be getting her thoughts on Liv’s fight-or-flight response in the season-ender.

We can’t say we blame Liv for wanting to escape. The panic-ridden season saw her contend with the realities of her rogue parents, more than a few deaths and woes among her Gladiator team. Wine and popcorn can only do so much to combat the stress.


It all leads to many questions that we’ll pose to Washington when she joins us. If you want to get in on the inquisition, tweet us your questions using #askLATimes or leave them here in the comments section.
