'Scandal': Five things you need to know before the final season starts

Scandal returns for its seventh and final season on Thursday, and just in case you forgot what Olivia Pope — and her friends and enemies — were up to the last time we saw them, we’ve got you covered with this video catch-up guide.

The quick refresher video will answer all of your questions: Who is president these days? Which character is pregnant (and who is the father)? What’s Cyrus been up to, and what does he want? And perhaps most important, who is the most powerful person in the world?

As always, it’s Olivia’s world — we’re just dying to watch it.

Scandal premieres Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
