How to Host a "Scandal" Viewing Party

gladiators unite

Put together an Olivia Pope-themed party for tomorrow's mid-season premiere of "Scandal."

Gladiators, dust off your white hats: Shonda Rhimes' hit show "Scandal" is finally returning tomorrow night (Thursday, February 27) on ABC, continuing where the mid-season finale left off in December.

What better way to dive right back into the intrigue, romance, and pure creepiness (sorry, Huck) than by hosting your very own "Scandal" viewing party?

Luckily, it doesn't take a lot to put together an Olivia Pope-themed shindig for you or your closest friends (and really, if it's just you, Olivia certainly wouldn't judge). Here's all you need:


1. Luxurious cashmere and/or silk pajamas

 Or, if you're like the rest of us mere mortals, Old Navy PJs will do in a pinch.


2. Wine (preferably red)


Shonda was kind enough to recommend some bottles for us.


3. Fishbowl-sized wineglasses.

Is Olivia sad because her favorite wine glasses are on backorder from Crate & Barrel? We think so.

4. Popcorn

 Olivia's favorite. We're pretty sure she doesn't eat anything else.


5. A broodingly handsome gentleman friend.



 Perhaps that's just wishful thinking...


6. Did we mention wine?

But seriously, that's all you really need. That and an iron-strong will to get through those Huck torture scenes.

"Scandal" returns tomorrow, February 27 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
