Get ready, gladiators: A new season of Scandal is here. And if you're like Fitz, you're wondering: What happened to Olivia Pope after she took off at the end of last season?

A new teaser for the ABC show, which returns September 25, seems to answer that question. In the short clip, Fitz is seen in the Oval Office calling Pope's apartment and office, with no answer. We then see the divine Ms. Pope lounging on a beach somewhere, drinking red wine (natch).

Sure, that doesn't give us much to hold us over until the premiere, but here's ABC's description of the episode to get us going:

"Nearly two months after Olivia and Jake boarded a private jet to stand in the sun together, everything has changed. With another four years in the White House, Fitz and Cyrus are doing everything they can to make a positive impact on the nation. Meanwhile, Mellie struggles to cope with the loss of her son and the gladiators feel the impact of Olivia's absence."

Something tells us Olivia and Jake won't stay out of D.C. for all that long.
