Kerry Washington, Mary J. Blige and Taraji P. Henson make the best Apple commercial.

Olivia Pope didn’t know how to handle one of her fans.

Kerry Washington had a scary fan encounter after her appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday (Sept. 24, 2015). The actress visited the morning talk show to promote the new season of Scandal

Washington stopped to pose for photos with fans outside the studio, and that’s when things got out of hand. She was left shaken up after being ambushed by a crazed female fan trying to take her photograph. Her security immediately intervened, while Washington tried to politely get away.

The fifth season of Scandal premieres tonight on ABC, but will Olivia and Fitz finally be together? The fourth season ended with the President kicking his wife, Mellie, out of the White House, and Olivia showing up for the final scene to kiss Fitz. Here’s what Washington had to say on GMA:

In television, we tend to think when two people come together, that’s the end. But in life, when two people come together that’s the beginning and so it turns out the same is true on Scandal.

Yes! That means Olitz is back together. We’re so glad #TGIT is back. In the meantime, watch the video of Washington’s run-in with a crazed fan below.
