Scandal, I have some questions for you. Namely, what the hell happened?
The ABC drama used to be believable. Not plausible, but at least somewhat believable. For any show to pull off the over-the-top melodrama Scandal does without becoming completely unhinged, it needs to be grounded by some semblance of reason. Even cartoons exist within a set of limitations. For example, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote can both run in midair unless Coyote looks down and realizes he's about to fall. Then, by the rules of cartoon physics, he plummets. Recently though, it's felt like Scandal's been running full-speed ahead with no ground beneath it, but when they look down and see they're about to fall, they say, 'F--- it, I'm going higher."

Henry Ian Cusick has no regrets about leaving Scandal just prior to the ABC political fixer drama became wildly popular.

It was announced after the first season that the Lost alum's contract had not been picked up for a second season and his exit was a "mutual decision."
