Forget Olitz! Huckleberry Quinn has become one of the most beloved relationships on Scandal. But that all changed last week when Huck (Guillermo Diaz) tortured his protégée Quinn (Katie Lowes). Can their relationship ever be fixed? Maybe, if Quinn shows her true allegiance to OPA by killing Rowan (Joe Morton) as she planned to do at the close of the episode. TVGuide.com turned to Diaz and Lowes to get the scoop on the midseason finale and whether there's actually more to Huck and Quinn's relationship than just being fellow Gladiators and torture aficionados:
Mama Pope lives!
At the close of last week's Scandal, viewers discovered that Maya (Khandi Alexander) is actually alive. As part of Operation Remington, a civilian plane containing Maya was shot down by Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) decades prior, but it turns out, Maya was removed from the plane before take-off and imprisoned by her husband Rowan/Eli (Joe Morton) for the last twenty or so years. Why has Maya been locked up? Will she get to reunite with daughter Olivia (Kerry Washington)? TVGuide.com caught up with Alexander to get the scoop:

Question: I started watching Scandal from the start, when it was simply a problem-of-the-week plot mixed in with a little soap opera with Olivia and the President. They lost me a little bit last year when they temporarily dropped that element to completely focus on the soap opera element when the president was shot. With the addition of the B613 storyline (and possible new Harrison storyline), I feel the show has lost its focus. I was highly enjoying Lisa Kudrow's story and performance only to have the show dragged down by B613's machinations and apparent manipulation of Quinn. I get the fear the show could be the political Love Boat where the guest stars get all the meaty storylines, but I watch shows like Strike Back for my spy action and adventure. Have these writers learned nothing from the mistakes countless shows including Alias and recently Revenge have made with these over-the-top secret maniacal agencies? — Brian
