"Scandal" star Bellamy Young recently dished on what it was like playing her role as a depressed wife and mother who lost her son.

In a recent interview with People, Young admitted to having the most fun on the job when she played the role of a grieving person.

"When we had the table read for the first episode of the season, I wasn't really sure what the tone was supposed to be. But I have the best bosses in the world and they really helped me explore the darkness. But Mellie also was the only one telling the truth in the White House. She got to walk around in her bathrobe, eating fried chicken without a bra on and tell everyone exactly what she was thinking. It was a blast. I loved 'Fat Mellie,'" she said.

Talking about Thursday night's return episode, Young also dished on its focus on answering the question, "Where is Olivia Pope?"

"In this first episode back, we do something we've never done before. I think fans are going to need until next Wednesday to catch their breath. I basically held mine for 42 minutes straight when I watched it," she dished.

Thursday night's episode saw Olivia Pope, played by actress Kerry Washington, losing control. After being kidnapped in last month's episode, Liv was involved in a series of scandalous moments, TV Line reported.

Apparently, Liv was not really brought to a far-off place, rather, she was just brought to the apartment across the hall. At one point, the leader of the gladiators found herself inside a cell in the Middle East.

Dreaming about the kind of life she wants to live, Liv imagines being rescued by Jake and living a life with President Fitzgerald in Vermont, People noted. 

But the biggest scandal on Thursday night's episode was when Pope had the chance to escape the cell by clubbing one kidnapper over the head.
