Returning Favorites: Inside Scandal's Shocking New Season

On a Wednesday afternoon in late August, Kerry Washington's shih tzu-Yorkie mix, Josie, is napping contentedly on a Hollywood soundstage sofa as her Emmy-nominated owner gets back to the business of being scandalous. Clad in her character Olivia Pope's trademark Armani, Washington is...well, we can't tell you what she's doing, who she's doing it with, or even where they're doing it. If we did, Scandal creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes would unleash the show's figurative guard dogs, the fearsome spies of B613, on us.

Scandal's Shonda Rhimes Reveals Harrison's Fate, Talks Season of Abby

When Scandal returns, the ABC political fixer drama will waste no time resolving many of the jaw-dropping cliff-hangers that fans have been discussing all summer.

In the Season 3 finale, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) inadvertently fulfilled her father Rowan's (Joe Morton) wishes by boarding a plane with Jake (Scott Foley), leaving behind Washington D.C. and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Little did she know, daddy dearest murdered Fitz and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) son in a bid to become Command of B613 again and insure that POTUS would stay in office.

Scandal: Who didn't survive the season finale?

The only person who figured it out was the one man who had a gun pointed at his head in the closing moments of the finale. And Harrison's fate is certainly up in the air now that Columbus Short will not be returning to the show. So, what does this mean for the Gladiators in Season 4? TVGuide.com sat down with showrunner Shonda Rhimes to get the scoop:read more

Question: From the moment Cyrus elected (pun intended) not to let anyone else in on the bomb threat to the final silliness of Olivia and Jake wending skyward on daddy's jet, the Scandal finale was all the usual over-the-top perfection Gladiators have come to love and expect from Shonda Rhimes when she's operating at the top of her "a little too much is not enough" game. Nice homage to the Keyser Söze reveal from The Usual Suspects at the end. Sorry Columbus Short got offed; perhaps if his character had been given a real reel life I'd miss him more, but that was one of the flaws in the mostly great/outlandish storytelling that truly bugged this fangirl. I know it was a rush from plot point to plot point, but I'm willing to accept the pregnancy as a legitimate excuse for the end-of-season, roller rink stop-and-go, punch in the face/gut action. And what a nice sendoff for Joe Morton! Now let's see how Rhimes gets Olivia back in the game. Who's she gonna play with now? This could be a signal that there are new players, yet to be named. And how in the expletive deleted are they (Ms. Rhimes and Ms. Pope) gonna top that?! — McKenzie

Scandal Postmortem: Are Olivia and Fitz Over for Good?

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's Scandal finale. Read at your own risk!]

Fitz finally got what he wanted  it just cost him the one thing he cares about most.

Thursday's Scandal season finale, aptly titled "The Price of Free and Fair Election," found Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) getting elected to president for his second term on his own — and with a little (OK, a lot of) help from the death of his son Jerry (Dylan Minnette), who was killed with a strain of bacterial meningitis. Naturally, Fitz assumed Maya Pope (Khandi Alexander) was behind the dastardly deed after her attempt to blow him up at the church failed.

Scandal: Who Didn't Survive the Season Finale?

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's Scandal finale. Read at your own risk!]

Scandal's season finale was quite explosive — but it wasn't the bomb that was the most shocking moment.  

The big bomb scare was actually quickly resolved in the opening moments of Thursday's episode, with Jake (Scott Foley) arriving at the Oval Office to tell Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) about the bomb at the church before it exploded, which allowed them to evacuate in time. Unfortunately... read more
