The jaw-dropping Season 2 finale of “Scandal” left fans with a giant cliffhanger and Tony Goldwyn (Fitz) says the ride is just beginning – Season 3 will be just as insane!

“[‘Scandal’ creator] Shonda [Rhimes] has pushed this to a whole other level,” Tony told Access Hollywood at the 13th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree. “The [Season 3] premiere is shocking in what is revealed!”

The actor said the drama, which centers around political crisis manager Olivia Pope (played by Kerry Washington) will be rife with new twists when it returns to ABC in the fall.
