Thanks to the Gladiators (fans of the show), whose Instagram likes unlocked the sneak peak, we’re graced with 20 glorious seconds of a Mellie (Bellamy Young) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) lunch date!

We’re just as perplexed as Olivia as to why she and the FLOTUS are currently at a restaurant together while the paparazzi are buzzing around outside.

Sassy Mellie’s response to Olivia’s question? “We’re sharing a meal, being gal pals, braiding each other’s hair, talking about boys.” Her eyes positively sparkle, not sure whether it’s with internal rage, scheming or an amalgamation of both, as she leans forward with a huge smile and says, “I’m making a respectable woman out of you, Olivia.”

Hot damn.

The second half of season three begins on February 27, so we won’t know for another three weeks why our Fixer and the First Lady are meeting each other in a public space. Does it have something to do with a possible baby bump? Does Mellie know about Olivia and Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) little get-together at a barely furnished mansion? Or is there a completely different (most probably Fitz-related) reason? Who knows! But if you have any ideas chime in below! We’d love to hear them.

No doubt once we get a proper trailer we’ll be given just a little bit more insight in regards to this tiny blink-and-you’ll-miss-it peek.
