'Scandal' Season 3 Premiere: Exclusive Sneak Peek At Olivia And Fitz's First Meeting, Post-Leak (VIDEO)

Are you ready for the "Scandal" Season 3 premiere? Well you don't have to wait much longer -- at least to see the first sneak peek of it.

We've got a pretty amazing first look at a "Scandal" Season 3 premiere scene, above, that will give you chills. It features Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) managing their latest crisis -- you know, the whole world knowing that she's Fitz's mistress -- and it. is. heated.

Watch the clip to see Fitz chastising Olivia for using her one-time-only, super-secret White House lockdown password, and then just wait to see who else she invited to their secret bunker plan-making rendezvous. Any guesses?

Tell us, Gladiators: Are you loving this look at Season 3?

"Scandal" Season 3 premieres Thurs., Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
