"Scandal" season 6 star Scott Foley recently weighed in on his character Jake Ballard and Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) relationship in the hit ABC series.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said that he strongly believes Olivia chose Jake over President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn).

In season 5, the lead character came up with a plan to be with Jake. However, this didn't materialize because Olivia's father Rowan (Joe Morton) threatened to kill Jake if the latter doesn't end up with his then-fiancee.

However, even though Olivia and Jake didn't officially reunite last season, Foley believes that Olivia's decision to initially be with Jake proved that she has chosen him.

"I'm going to be very unpopular in saying this: I think Olivia has chosen Jake. Proof of that for me is the day he was going to get married. They concocted this plan, they were going to be together, he was going to leave his fiancée at the altar until Rowan threatened Olivia with Jake's life," he said.

During this scene, Olivia told Jake that she doesn't love him anymore and that she's choosing President Fitz. However, it was also very clear to Jake that Olivia had a sudden change of heart with good reason.

"It was very apparent to me that she wanted to be with Jake and she couldn't," he added.

Meanwhile, Foley didn't reveal whether or not Jake and Olivia will officially become a couple again in "Scandal" season 6.

What is only known is that the two will work together if Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) becomes the next president of the United States and Jake becomes her vice president.

During the early episodes of "Scandal" season 6, President Fitz will also leave the White House which almost guarantees that he will have more time to pursue Olivia.

"Scandal" season 6 will premiere on ABC sometime in Jan. 2017.
