Gladiators may be anxiously awaiting "Scandal"'s return on Oct. 3, but the good news is that it's still possible to get a fix a little earlier. The DVD release of season 2 hits stores Sept. 3, complete with an extended episode, a "Hanging with Huck" featurette, outtakes, and deleted scenes in a five-disc set.

Get an early look here with this HitFix exclusive clip, which shows Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) getting into a heated argument at the hospital after she suffers a concussion. As if we needed more reasons to be impressed by Olivia, she manages to have a completely coherent conversation while wearing a hospital gown and looking for her street clothes. No wonder the President likes her so much.

Do you plan to get the season two DVD of "Scandal"?
