'Scandal' Scoop: We're Finally Going to Meet Fitz's Kids

Will & Grace's Stan Walker. Nigel Crane's wife Maris. Tino from My So-Called Life. All TV characters we heard a lot about but never saw.

After three seasons, it seemed like Scandal's first kids, Jerry and Karen, were destined to remain mentioned but unseen. After all, they didn't even bother to come home from boarding school when their father almost got assassinated. But now comes word from TVLine that Fitz and Mellie's eldest children will finally be visiting the Oval Office this spring.

Scandal is currently casting the role of 15-year-old Jerry, who is described as “quiet, smart and intense.” His younger sister Karen, meanwhile, is “polished, self-assured and older than her years.” Hmm, seems like Karen may have taken after the always perfectly-coiffed First Lady.

It was revealed earlier this season that Jerry was concieved right around the time that Fitz's father raped Mellie, so the teen's arrival should bring major drama. The Grant brats will appear in the 15th episode of the season, which was shortened from 22 to 18 episodes to accommodate star Kerry Washington's pregnancy.

What do you think, Gladiators? Is Fitz about to find out that his son is actually his brother? And is that somehow even more disturbing than the time Olivia's mom chewed through her own wrists? Hit the comments below with your thoughts!
