Move over, Olitz: Scandal's other awesome 'ship is getting on the drama train.
Huckleberry Quinn — the duo of Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) — are going to hit a rough patch this season now that Quinn knows the exhilarating feeling of torturing someone.

After Quinn lost pretty much everything in her life because of Defiance, Huck helped her to channel her anger into his Dexter-like extra-curricular activity. That way, she won't be tempted to seek vengeance on Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) -- a no-no for Gladiators -- and therefore will continue to wear the white hat. As Huck's protégé, Quinn now has a taste for this dark world and is becoming everything he hates about himself. How will that affect their relationship?

To recap: After debuting to much fanfare two years ago, The Killing seemingly squandered its promise — it was to re-invent the stale crime procedural genre with a deeper, character-driven exploration of a single case — by introducing numerous (and often senseless) red herrings that kept the show's not-quite-three-dimensional heroes chasing their tails....

Oy vey. Or as Virginia Chance (Martha Plimpton) might mangle her Hebrew-isms: "Molotov! (for mazel tov)." Fox sure doesn't make it easy to say goodbye to Raising Hope as it ends its third season on a new night with back-to-back episodes (9/8c), the sort of treatment you'd normally see from a network burning off a show in which it has lost faith. Thankfully, that's not the case here. Hope has already been picked up for a fourth season, and it goes out on a delightfully deranged musical high, with Burt (the sublime Garret Dillahunt) center stage as he frantically preps for his overdue Bar Mitzvah.
The devil's in the building!
Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry), the man responsible for single-handedly ruining Quinn Perkins' (Katie Lowes) life, will become an OPA client during this week's Scandal (Thursday, 10/9c, ABC). Naturally, Quinn won't be the happiest person with this decision. Will Hollis' proximity cause her to finally snap? Or will she stick to being a gladiator in a suit? TVGuide.com turned to Lowes to get the scoop:
