Well this is one Scandal scandal we didn't expect. Turns out, in one particular episode of the hit ABC drama, Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope is wearing her real-life wedding ring.

Washington dished on the accidental jewelry slip to People at the Accessories Council's 20th anniversary ACE Awards on Monday in New York City. So how exactly did the ultimate fixer forget such a crucial detail? Washington explained that she never takes off her wedding ring — except when she needs to put her Pope face on — save that one time when she forgot.

"Sometimes I don't take it off! But only once," she told the magazine, refusing to spill which episode it was. "I can't tell you! If you're a real fan, you might find it. Keep looking, keep looking!"

Maybe Liv wouldn't tote a wedding ring (just yet, at least — who knows where this season will lead!) but we find it super sweet that she never takes off that precious piece of jewelry. And it actually turns out, that she's never been a big bauble fan prior to her marriage. In fact, wearing a wedding band opened the door for her wearing more gems than ever before.

"I've never been a big jewelry and accessories person. I think if anything actually I find that I wear more jewelry more consistently because now I wear my wedding band," Washington continued. "I've never really had a piece of jewelry that I wear all the time, and now I do."

Don't fret, Scandal fans. When she actually remembers to take off her ring for filming, she keeps it safe: "It's usually pinned somewhere on me," she explained.
