It’s a common problem. You’re late to the game on a super popular TV show and now that you have time to devote to it, you’re 3 seasons too late. What’s a person to do? Well instead of ignoring friends and family for 3 weeks while you binge watch Scandal and gain 10 pounds (chips are FATTENING, people!) the lovely people at ABC have put together the ultimate recap.

And we’re not talking about a 2-hour catch-up like they did with Lost back in the day—we’re talking about a 6 minute and 46 second recap where they LITERALLY describe everything that happened. You can LITERALLY watch this 6 minutes and 46 second recap and then watch Season 3 as if you’ve been sexually attracted to Scott Foley for his entire 9-episode run in Season 2. LITERALLY:

But let’s say you are looking for more of that Lost-type deep-dive. Those lovely people at ABC are also airing a one-hour primetime special next Thursday, October 3 at 8/7c. “Scandal: The Secret is Out” is hosted by cast member Josh Malina, and will take us through the most talked about questions of Seasons 1 and 2. And make sure to stay with ABC that night as the season 3 premiere airs later that evening at 10/9c.

Are you all caught up? Are you ready for season 3? Also, can someone corroborate my theory that Josh Malina’s David Rosen is a legitimate hot person? Share in the comments or tweet us @OKMagazine.
