Kerry Washington Discusses Olivia & Fitz in 'Scandal' Season 5

Kerry Washington hits the carpet while attending the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Launch event on Thursday (September 24) in New York City.

The 38-year-old Scandal actress was joined at the event by her pal Alicia Keys, who she shared a big hug with on the carpet. Also stepping out were Robin Roberts and The Bachelorette‘s Andi Dorfman.

Kerry spoke to E! News at the event about her character Olivia’s relationship with Fitz on Scandal season five.

“You know, in a lot of shows when the central love relationship finally comes together, that’s the end of the show, which I was really nervous about when I read our finale last year,” Kerry said. “I was like, ‘Do we get a season five? Do we not get a season five?’ But I think it’s more like in life, that when our relationship begins, that’s the beginning, not the end.”

“They get to discover what that means, what’s it like with all that tension of not being able to be together,” she added. “What will it be like for them?”

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Prabal Gurung dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes.

Shonda Rhimes & Her Leading Ladies Cover EW's New Issue!

Shonda Rhimes and her leading ladies, Kerry Washington, Ellen Pompeo, and Viola Davis take the cover of EW‘s latest issue!

There are four separate covers highlighting Shonda‘s hit ABC shows Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Scandal. Here’s what the cast had to share about their shows:

Ellen, on the sexist response to McDreamy’s death: “All of a sudden, ­Patrick [Dempsey] leaves, and it’s like, Oh my God, ­Meredith’s gonna get killed with Alzheimer’s! The show couldn’t possibly go on ­without the man!”

Viola, on colorism in the entertainment industry: “You have to come from Detroit or Atlanta to be black. If you have John Denver on your iPod and you come from Central Falls, Rhode Island, then: Eh, you trickle-down black woman.”

Kerry, on why it’s different to work for a female showrunner: “I was talking to an actress who’s pregnant and really worried about telling her bosses, and I said, ‘Yeah, when I told my boss I was pregnant, she literally jumped up and down in my trailer.’ I don’t know if there’s a male show­runner who would do that.”
