Scott Foley has been upped to a series regular on Scandal for next season, which is good news for fans of genial hunkiness. When we last saw Captain Ballard, he was being tossed into the CIA's scary torture hole where he'll presumably be kept in total isolation for a good long time. Perhaps when he gets out, he'll stumble to Olivia's apartment, where she'll of course have to soothe him with some gentle kisses that turn into rougher kisses that turn into doin' it.
