Mama Pope Is Back! Khandi Alexander To Return To ‘Scandal’

Published: Tuesday 4th Nov 2014 by Sam

Season 4 of ‘Scandal’ has proven somewhat a slow-burner. However, writers of the ABC hit are gearing up to pour fuel on the flames with the return of Khandi Alexander – known to most as Maya (Mama) Pope.

Details below…

{Please note article contains spoilers}

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the actress will reprise her role as the terrorist mother of protagonist Olivia Pope on the show’s midseason finale which is set to air in the coming weeks.

The particulars on her return are being shroud in secrecy, however the last time the masses saw the destructive diva, ex husband Rowan (played by Joe Morton) had framed her for the murder of the President Fitz’s son and locked her away.

Given that both Olivia and Fitz believe her to be dead, it’s safe to say the resurfacing of Alexander’s character will have explosive consequences.

Editor’s sidenote: Finally a reprieve from this tired love triangle that has been force-fed since the onset of the season. The Olivia/Fitz/Jake “thing” isn’t conceptually jarring, it’s more so the overt focus on it that has been denting the show’s otherwise engaging narrative. Thankfully, Mama Pope looks set to be shaking things up. Gracias, Shonda. Gracias!

‘Scandal’ airs every Thursday on ABC at 9pm ET.
