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!

Netflix Passes on Renewing Canceled NBC Drama ‘Manifest’
Manifest will not fly again.
The plane drama was abruptly canceled after three seasons leaving fans with absolutely no answers as to what led to the disappearance of Flight 828.
It’s a surprising move considering the series has been steadily holding at #1 after being added to Netflix.
Fans also rallied on social media with the #SaveManifest campaign, but sadly, all efforts were unsuccessful.
Sources say that since Netflix opted to pass on saving the drama, Warner Bros. Television, the studio responsible for the series, has concluded efforts to rehome it as it’s reportedly too complicated with rights and cast contracts.
For now, reps for Netflix and WBTV declined to comment.
However, it seems to be a done deal as series creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm the solemn news tweeting: “Manifest Gratitude, Final Edition Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it.”
Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it. 🙏❤️

The third season ended early this month with several cliffhangers, which makes this cancellation and failed rescue mission all the more heartbreaking.
It’s unclear if NBC is totally against giving the series a wrap-up movie as it did with Timeless, but man, don’t fans deserve closure?
The series was initially pitched as a six-season drama, which means there’s plenty more story to tell.
Even Rake agreed that fans deserve answers. After all, we didn’t spend three years of our lives tuning in weekly to find out what happened to the plane just to be left hanging.
We all know what happens to those who ignore Callings — it’s not good.
‘Friends’ Actor James Michael Tyler Opens Up About Stage 4 Prostate Cancer
James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, the Central Perk manager on the classic sitcom Friends, opened up about his Stage 4 Prostate Cancer on the Today show Monday morning.
After receiving the grim diagnosis in September 2018, the then 56-year-old actor was put on hormone therapy. It worked for a while before eventually spreading to his spine leaving him paralyzed in his lower body.
He revealed that he’s “been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years…It’s stage 4 [now] late-stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s probably going to get me.”

During the recent HBO Max Friends reunion, Tyler had originally planned on attending in person but chose to join virtually, so as to not bring a downer on the happy moment.
“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included,” he said.
Now, he’s using his platform as a way to provide the important message to all men to get screened early, saying that “there are other options available to men if they catch it before me. Next time you go in for just a basic exam or yearly check-up, please ask your doctor for a PSA test.”
“I don’t want people to have to go through what I’ve been going through,” he said. “This is not…an easy process.”
