Sorry, Scandal fans: Quinn (Katie Lowes) is no longer a Gladiator. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) made that abundantly clear in the midseason finale after discovering that the youngest OPA member had betrayed Olivia (Kerry Washington).

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.

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."
