We’re just days away from the season finale of Scandal and rumor has it, it’s going to be EXPLOSIVE. Kerry Washington admitted that there was a pun intended.
Washington talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the finale, saying so much and so little at the same time!
So what useful information did the very-pregnant starlet dish out. Well, lets dig in.
The finale deals with the final election day. Washington admitted that during the one-hour game changing finale, they will deal with the bombing incident and move forward. As for the intensity/outcome of how bad that bombing will be, there is no word.
Olivia’s father is also clinging onto his life after getting brutally stabbed by ex-wife and Liv’s mom Maya Pope. “You will learn a lot about Olivia by the way in which she interacts with her parents and their mortality in this episode,” said Washington. Do you see what I mean by so little being said?!!
The fate of B6-13 is also up in the air. During the last two episodes, Olivia and associates destroyed the government based agency, which kind of resulted in the madness we’re in right now. Olivia is to blame for everything. But will B6-13 survive? “Everybody’s relationship with B613 is shifting in a big way. I can imagine a world where it does and doesn’t exist, but you’ll have to wait and see which one we go with,” Washington teased.
But the best part of this interview was finding out that Washington was actually on Team Mellie. Can you believe it?? As viewers, we spend our time constantly torn between the Presidents wife and his mistress. Who do we like more? Now we find out that Olivia Pope actually doesn’t like Olivia Pope? Well, not necessarily. Here’s how Washington put it.
“It’s been fun to see. I’m voraciously Team Mellie. I’m obsessed with #Mew and I love that there are so many people concerned with that new relationship. And rightfully so because we’ve all been waiting to see this part of Mellie and to have her have this aspect of her character come to life. It’s pretty crazy what goes down.”
Basically, you can actually be on both teams!! Score! “I’m of the firm belief that you don’t have to be either Team Olivia or Team Mellie — you can be both. People always ask me that on Twitter and Bellamy and I are both. It’s a nod to these writers that they’re not afraid of the complexity of having two fully evolved, complicated women — more than two with but we’re talking about these two. They’ve both been spun on their heads this season; you think of Olivia as a superhero and you realize how much more vulnerable she is. And the same with Mellie; you think she’s just an evil villain and then realize how much more vulnerable she is. That’s really awesome and courageous on the writers’ part,” Washington explained.
As for a scoop on the election and if Fitz will win/lose on his own, Washington admitted that no one every really wins an election on their own. “That’s part of what the show is about. We see the machine behind how these things happen. I don’t think anybody is every winning an election on their own — either in real life or on our show. You get to see how the machine, including Fitz himself, responds to circumstances around him,” she said.
What are your hopes for the season finale??? Do you think it’ll be as insane as everyone’s making it out to be? Click on the link above to read the full Hollywood Reporter interview!

9 Shows That Need to Be On Your Radar for 2022
It was bittersweet saying goodbye to plenty of shows in 2021, but the plus side is that it made room for a handful of new shows that are gearing up for their highly-anticipated premieres.
There are plenty of shows that we’re excited about, but since it’s too much for anyone person to take in, we’ve condensed it to a list including the best of the best.
These are all the shows already garnering and generating buzz in 2022 — even before they’ve premiered.
Check out our list of shows (mostly new, but also a few final seasons) that should be on your radar:
How I Met Your Father – Hulu
Fans of How I Met Your Mother can re-live all the magic with a new group of friends with Hilary Duff at the helm. It’s also giving us some Younger vibes, so call it the best of both worlds.
The gender-reversed comedy premieres Tuesday, Jan. 18 with the first two episodes and then on a weekly basis.
House of the Dragon – HBO Max
Even if the final season of “Game of Thrones” left a bad taste in your mouth, don’t worry, the prequel is here to serve as a palate cleanser. Set 200 years before GOT, it’s based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and focuses on the a civil war within House Targaryen. There is no premiere date as of yet, but that hasn’t stopped us from holding our breath.
BEL-AIR – Peacock
Revivals get a bad rap, but they aren’t always terrible. We’ve seen success with Saved by the Bell and Roswell, so fingers-crossed that Bel-Air, a comedy reimagined as an hour-long drama, will deliver in the same way. Will Smith has signed on for the project alongside the original creators. Jabari Banks stars as Will, a young man who moves into the gated mansion of Bel-Air in modern-day America, and explores plenty of conflicts and biases. It has been picked up for two seasons prior to the premiere on Sunday, Feb. 13 with the first two episodes and then weekly episodes.
Ozark – Netflix (Fourth and final season)
We’re crossing the finish line on Ozark this year, which is arguably a good thing because I don’t know how much more my nerves could handle. And the end is likely something the Byrde family definitely wants after getting too wrapped up in a messy situation with the Mexican cartel. Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Gardner all make this series an intoxicating binge from beginning to end, even if the fourth and final season is split up into two parts with the first half arriving on Netflix on January 21.
Disney+ saw massive success with their Marvel shows, so it’s not a surprise that there’s a palpable excitement for She-Hulk starring Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, a lawyer who has one small favor to ask: don’t make her angry. She’s the less-angry-but-just-as-green cousin of Bruce Banner, the Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo, who is expected to make an appearance. No premiere date has been announced yet.
Inventing Anna – Netflix
Shonda Rhines is making her mark on Netflix with a series based on the true and shocking story of fashionable grifter Anna Delvey who faked being a German heiress to scam New York New Yorker’s into thinking she was a German heiress. Ozark’s secret weapon, Julia Gardner, works miracles as Delvey. The cast also stars Scandal’s Katie Lowes and Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox. This is a can’t miss limited series that hits Netflix on February 11.
Lord of the Rings – Amazon Prime
This is a big one for fans of the LOTR films! The television adaptation is a prequel set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and features an ensemble cast — both new and familiar — as they confront an evil unlike ever before in the Second Middle Age. It will make its mark on Amazon Prime on September 22.
Stranger Things – Netflix
We’ve paid our dues waiting to catch up with the residents of Hawkins, Indiana. Only this time, the action will take us to California and Soviet Russia (because, yes, Hopper is alive — spoiler) as the group of friends tries to stop the supernatural entities of the Upside Down once and for all. A premiere date (for the fourth and possible final season) announcement is likely on the horizon, but our money is on late spring or early summer. After all, we’ve waited long enough!
Obi-Wan Kenobi – Disney+
Disney and Star Wars go hand-in-hand, and with the success of the recent The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, it only makes sense that they would dive into Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series is set a decade after the events of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith. In a real treat, Ewan McGregor will reprise the titular role, while Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader. No premiere date has been announced.
