The literally explosive first episode shows Olivia Pope and former-first-lady-turned-candidate Mellie Grant going head-to-head as Mellie's presidential bid nears its end.

Scandal follows Pope, played by Kerry Washington, and her Washington, D.C., crisis management team as they navigate the often-dangerous world of American politics.

Tony Goldwyn, Scott Foley, Bellamy Young, Guillermo Diaz, Cornelius Smith Jr., and Portia de Rossi also star in the series, which airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
