Things are about to get even more interesting in Shondaland.
The “Scandal/How to Get Away with Murder” crossover episode airs on Thursday, March 1, on ABC, but ahead of that episode, ABC has released a new trailer that has us even more excited than we already were.
The episode, “Allow Me to Introduce Myself,” will feature Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) teaming up to get a class action judicial reform case up to the Supreme Court.
Annalise wants Olivia’s help navigating the Washington landscape, but since Olivia doesn’t have the power she used to, it looks like these two savvy women are going to have to put all their best tricks to use to get it done.
‘Black girl magic on steroids’
For the most part, Washington and Davis have kept details to themselves when it comes to the big crossover episode. But while they won’t talk about the episode, they’ve been more than willing to gush about each other.
“It was black girl magic on steroids,” Davis told Entertainment Weekly. “Me and Kerry dancing to ‘Rock the Boat?’ Hey, it can’t get any better.”
“I really love Viola. I have such immense respect and admiration for her,” Washington said.
The two of them have also posted pictures of themselves on the sets of each other’s shows, only teasing us more.
“Hey Ms @violadavis check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?” Washington wrote alongside a picture of herself at the courthouse set for HTGAWM.
“Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!” Davis replied, along with a picture of herself in the Oval Office from Scandal.
Obviously, Washington and Davis are excited to work together, and we’re excited to see them rock the small screen. We can hardly wait for March 1 to get here.
