Who did Mellie end up with?
The Gladiators have left their arena. On Thursday, ABC and Shonda Rhimes closed up Olivia Pope and Associates for good as Scandal wrapped its seven-season run with a series finale that explored the ramifications of going public with the existence of black-ops group B613 and the ultimate corruption that comes with the thirst for power and the Oval Office.
- The series finale, fittingly called “Over a Cliff” and written by Rhimes, followed the Gladiators all standing in the light to tell the truth about what they’ve done over their years of back-room deals and misdeeds to protect the Republic (and their own inner-circle of power).
- As expected, the finale featured a couple of familiar faces, resolved the B613 case and left some things open for interpretation.
Ultimately, Attorney General David Rosen (Josh Malina ) — aka the most innocent person in D.C. whose hat was the whitest among everyone on the show — would pay the price for everything and was killed off. In the end, it was Cyrus (Jeff Perry) — the vice president of the United States — who killed David as he proved yet again that he would do anything to make the Oval Office his own in a storyline that Scandal has followed since its start.
- The series has always explored how the Oval Office and lust for power corrupts those who come near it, and Cyrus killing David illustrated how far he would go to get the highest office in the country.
- As for Cyrus, Olivia demands his resignation and he willingly agrees as he acknowledges that the things that he has done in his lust for power are demons from which he can never escape.
“It’s always been my contention that the Oval Office, in our show, was a place that corrupted anybody who came near it and the closer you came, the more corrupt it made you and the more damaged it made you,” Rhimes told reporters, including THR, ahead of the finale.
“Olivia started out as the character that we knew who has very much believed in how important this particular kind of power was and how molding it and being a part of it was — and we watched her, like everybody else, become absolutely corrupted by it, and make all the same mistakes that everybody else makes to get what she wants from it.” That reveal capped a final season that focused largely on how Olivia (Kerry Washington), who assumed control of B613 in the season six finale, had to fight her way back into the light and stand in the sun of what’s right and, most importantly, who she really is at her core.
Given the chance to flee by her father Rowan (Joe Morton), the one-time head of B613, Olivia opted instead to tell the truth and find her moral center again. Rowan, as it turns out, shockingly opted to do the same and testified that he created B613 and did so in a response to a need: because of white men whose privilege left the Republic in a state of neglect.
- Rowan confesses to his work fixing elections, acts of terrorism and more — but he did so for a reason.
- I am responsible for the fact that this nation still stands,” he testifies.
- I wake up every morning and I make America great.” Rowan’s final monologue is a larger statement about race in America and that the white men who run the country were ultimately controlled by a black man.
Rowan’s testimony brings Jake (Scott Foley) down as he takes the fall for B613, “One of the things that Olivia says in the penultimate episode is this idea of standing up and being somebody who puts everything out in the open is important,” Rhimes told reporters, including THR, ahead of the series ender.
- Whether or not everybody pays for what they’ve done, I don’t know that that’s what the finale is about as much as it’s about seeing what happens once that choice has been made.” Rhimes reiterated that she has always been more “Team Olivia” than any other romantic pairing for her D.C.
- Fixer and the finale would serve to complete Olivia’s “evolution” from the time viewers met her — when she’d already rigged a presidential election — to what happens after she finds her moral center again this season.” So post-B613, did Olivia wind up with her fairy tale ending with Fitz and a lifetime of making jam in Vermont? The end of the series featured Olivia’s portrait in the National Portrait Gallery — leaving viewers to decide for themselves if Olivia would wind up becoming president or was rewarded for her role in cleaning up D.C.’s corruption and becoming the ultimate fixer.
(A nice touch: Rhimes ‘ daughter, Harper, was the young girl left looking up at the portrait, which said “We the People” along its side.) As Rhimes warned, the finale also left that and a few other storylines open for viewers to interpret on their own as Scandal jumped forward following the conclusion of the B613 trial.
Rhimes and producers have no immediate plans of discussing how the series ultimately ended and intentionally wanted to leave the audience to determine the show’s ultimate takeaway about politics in D.C. ( Rhimes noted that the finale was more about completing Olivia’s journey than making a statement about backroom dealings in D.C.) The finale also left viewers to decide if Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) got their happy ending and life of jam-making in Vermont.
That said, here’s a look at where everyone wound up. • Olivia (Washington) : Cleaned up D.C., stood in the sun and was happily her own person. The ending also implied that the path was clear for a romantic relationship with Fitz, free of B613 and secrets.
- Rhimes ‘ ending also reiterated a theme that she has explored in the past: that women do not need a man to be happy, though her romantic path to Fitz remained open.
- Free from working in Washington, Olivia is left to do whatever she wants as she turns her back on D.C.
- Fitz (Goldwyn) : The former president still has his foundation and likely now has an open path to a romantic future with the love of his life: Olivia.
What’s more: his legacy is left untarnished. He becomes Marcus’ first backer in what could be his eventual run for office. • Mellie (Young) : Cleared from all wrong-doing, Mellie remained president — with a romantic relationship with Marcus. What’s more, she made gun control central to her platform.
Olivia winds up telling Mellie that she has always been able to stand on her own two feet and leaves her to run the country — without her. • Cyrus (Jeff Perry): Resigns as vice president of the United States and confesses that he can’t ever escape from the sins he has committed in his thirst for power.
• Abby (Darby Stanchfield ): Lost the love of her life in David Rosen. Abby’s ending was the most open-ended, though it’s likely she wound up remaining at work for Quinn Perkins and Associates. • Quinn (Katie Lowes): Got her happy ending: Married Charlie and is happy with their child — and running Quinn Perkins and Associates.
Huck (Guillermo Diaz): Remains by Abby’s side as she grieves for David. • Jake (Scott Foley): Takes the fall for B613 and spends the rest of his life in jail. Olivia apologizes to him for making him step out of the sun. Jake admits that he got something out of the whole thing — he loved Olivia. Jake becomes the only person who pays for everyone’s sins, letting all the Gladiators off the hook for everything that they’ve done.
• Rowan (Joe Morton): His testimony helps set all the Gladiators free — and bring down Jake and all of B613, • David (Josh Malina ): Pays the price for Cyrus’ lust for power and is killed by the vice president. • Charlie (George Newbern ): Is released from jail and works for his wife at Quinn Perkins and Associates.
• Marcus (Cornelius Smith Jr.): The latest Gladiator likely winds up in the White House — as the first husband to president Mellie Grant. What’s more, he’s going to explore his own political future, with Fitz backing him. Scandal, which helped cement Rhimes as a mega-producer and brand of her own, marked the close of prolific showrunner’s chapter on broadcast as every series she creates going forward will be for Netflix, where she signed a nine-figure overall deal.
In terms of Scandal ‘s future, Rhimes — who once seriously considered doing a B613 spinoff — confirmed that the end of the series is indeed the end of the franchise and there are no offshoots planned: ” Scandal is done.” While it would be easy to revisit the world of corruption and Gladiators on ABC’s Rhimes-produced drama How to Get Away With Murder after both series crossed over earlier this season, there are no current plans for that, either, though she stressed that the decision ultimately lies with showrunner Pete Nowalk,

Does Mellie get a happy ending?
Pour out a bottle of Bordeaux for Olivia Pope ( Kerry Washington ), her friends, and her enemies, as Thursday night brought their story to a close. “Over a Cliff” did its best to wrap up major emotional arcs, serve (at least one of) the bad guys official justice, and establish that in the most powerful town in America, Olivia had earned her place at the top.
What has always appealed to this non-“Grey’s Anatomy” fan about “Scandal” was that while both Shonda Rhimes -created series exist in their own heightened realities, the tone was more compatible with “Scandal’s” similarity to paperback thrillers than “Grey’s” similarity to a more soapy version of “E.R.” The first season of “Scandal,” when you revisit it, remains a tight, compelling political drama that mixed cases-of-the-week with an ever-growing conspiracy; Season 2 cemented its status as unskippable TV.
The show existed in its own alternate universe, one where eating nothing but hamburger, popcorn, and steak won’t kill you dead, but it was a universe that was fun to escape into, once a week. Beyond its merits as pure entertainment, the legacy of Rhimes’ groundbreaking drama cannot be overlooked; as the first network drama starring a black woman in decades, there was a deep consciousness of the race issues at play, and the series engaged with them in both an unspoken manner (like the times when Olivia would not straighten her hair, always a deliberate choice that spoke to how much of an issue that can be for black women ) as well as aptly direct fashion (Eli Pope’s repeated mantra: “You have to be twice as good to get half as much”).
That goes without mentioning “Scandal” was always a powerful show when it came to letting all of its women be more than just “strong female characters.” One of the best scenes of “Scandal” Season 7, if not the entire series, was Mellie (Bellamy Young) ranting to Olivia about how being a woman President does not help you get laid.
“Olivia, there is a famine in my lady bits! My vagina is beautiful, she is welcoming, but she is getting treated like a murder house. I can’t get anything in there!” It was hilarious and yet relatable, and only one of hundreds of standout moments for the character of Mellie — who, after going from being the clueless wife of the cheating President to a grieving and angry mother to the HBIC of the USA, became the stealth MVP of the series.
While the finale does give Mellie a happy ending, in which she holds onto her Presidency and renews her relationship with former confidante Marcus (Cornelius Smith Jr.), it’s a shame she wasn’t more present. Sure, that’s only because “Scandal” had a whole lot more to wrap up in this final hour, a problem entirely of its own making.
The twists that kept us hooked during Season 2, the writers seemed to feel, demanded even bigger twists in future seasons, and things quickly escalated. “Scandal” was always a show engaged with the morality of its characters, but specifically in terms of just how far they could push certain folks before they were completely irredeemable.
- Remembering how many times Quinn (Katie Lowes), Huck (Guillermo Díaz), and Charlie (George Newbern) tortured each other at some point makes the series finale scene where Huck finally officially officiated Quinn and Charlie’s wedding a bit odd to watch.
- Over the course of the series, this push and pull at times led to true moments of triumph, and at other times pushed the narrative into newfound levels of absurdity.
Everyone, save David Rosen (Joshua Malina) has some amount of blood on their hands after seven seasons of drama and betrayal, and some of the very worst offenses were committed by the show’s ostensible hero. “Scandal.” ABC The fact that David Rosen was the series finale’s sacrificial lamb does not feel like a coincidence — instead, it’s a message that justice in this broken world of ours is often lacking, especially in heightened circumstances like these.
It’s not just that once likable and sympathetic characters like Cyrus Bean (Jeff Perry) found themselves twisted into Machiavellian foes thanks to their ambition. Remember, Olivia didn’t just beat a man to death one time — she flat-out assassinated the country’s ostensible Vice-President, admittedly after finding out that Luna Vargas had plotted the assassination of her own husband, the newly elected President.
(In fairness, Olivia never murdered anyone without a good reason.) Given how much “Scandal” has gone off the rails over the years, there was something refreshing about how the show’s penultimate episode was all about the characters flat-out acknowledging just how much evil they’d committed since the beginning. “Scandal.” ABC It’s hardly a huge shock that a good chunk of the “Scandal” series finale revolves around every major character of the series giving testimony, with the climax of the trial devoted to Eli Pope/Rowan (Joe Morton) declaring that he’s been running B6-13 and then throwing Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) under the bus in exchange for everyone’s freedom, including his own.
There’s Abby (Darby Stanchfield) mourning for David, but there’s also a happy reunion for Quinn and Charlie, and Mellie remaining President, and a chance that Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) might end up together after all. Most importantly, in the closing montage, Olivia Pope’s ultimate ending is never confirmed, but the final scene — two young black girls in the National Portrait Gallery (how many years in the future?), staring at a portrait of Olivia that could very well be a Presidential one — does drop some hints that no matter what path her life took down the line, her power never wavered.
While Olivia, and nearly everyone else she knew, did bad things over the course of the show, it’s rather fitting that very little punishment is dealt out in the end. A series finale with Olivia and pals in jail wouldn’t have been nearly as satisfying as what we did get: The final adventure of a woman who was a master of manipulating the system that might otherwise have sought to keep her down.
Does Mellie Grant get assassinated?

Did Fitz wife know about Olivia?
About – They were good friends until Mellie found out about Fitz’ affair with Olivia. But they do look out for each other now and again and eventually became good friends again. In the end, the two part on good terms as they look towards the future.
Who does Fitz end up with?
Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope on Scandal, which aired its series finale Thursday night. Eric McCandless/ABC hide caption toggle caption Eric McCandless/ABC Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope on Scandal, which aired its series finale Thursday night. Eric McCandless/ABC The basic rule of Scandal for seven seasons, under its creator, Shonda Rhimes, has been that absolutely anything can happen, but very little of it really matters.
The protagonist, Olivia Pope, beat a guy to death with a chair. Fitz, her romantic hero, killed an old lady with his bare hands for his own benefit. An election was stolen. The vice president hijacked his own plane and framed the president. One character (Huck) tried to preserve another character’s (Quinn’s) goodness by torturing her (specifically by pulling her teeth).
A lady was stabbed with a dinosaur tooth. Olivia bombed a plane and killed several innocent people to preserve power. She also broke up multiple couples because their happiness was inconvenient for her. She convinced a widow who had just been elected vice president after arranging her husband’s assassination to commit suicide.
- And on. And on. And on.
- If these names don’t mean anything to you, trust me when I tell you that if they did, it wouldn’t help.
- But strangely, life carried on much as it had before for our,
- Heroes? Olivia eventually retired from her business to run a sort of all-inclusive evil services company known as B613 (we’ll get back to it), but before that, Fitz served out his term and passed power to his ex-wife, and Olivia remained adjacent to the White House for years.
At any given moment in Scandal, you can catch up by watching about three episodes, because that’s about as long as the show’s memory often seems to be (or needs to be). It’s the rare show where you could turn to a friend and say, “Remember when she killed a guy with a chair?” and your friend might say, “Ohhhhh, yeah, I forgot that.” All you really need to know about where we stood at the beginning of Thursday night’s series finale is that Olivia had publicly revealed the existence of the shadow-government-slash-secret-intelligence-ish-bad-guy-organization known as B613 that’s been the show’s Big Bad for several seasons.
(What was B612? I’m guessing it was a military marching band or maybe a secret hugging club.) It was very important for Liv to prove B613 really existed so she could bring down the bad guys and save the country, but to explain why, you’d need 80 more paragraphs and almost as much wine as Olivia herself drinks.
Which is a lot. In order to prove the existence of B613, Olivia’s entire team (Huck, Abby, Quinn, Sleepy, Sneezy?) needed to come together and admit all of the terrible, evil, often criminal things they had done. As it happened, their morally compromised actions were so thoroughly entwined with B613’s willfully evil actions that there was no way to take down the real bad guys and stay clean themselves.
- As you might have read in your Big Book Of Sayings, they have been lying down with dogs since 2012, and now they have many, many fleas.
- Really the biggest fleas.
- The most beautiful fleas.
- Some powerful Washingtonians, including the two final bad guys to emerge in the show’s end game, Cyrus and Jake, were not happy at all that Olivia’s team had fueled the story of Bad Guys Unlimited to Sally, a cable news host who addresses her audience as “lovers of liberty” or just “lovers,” and who grows less implausible by the day as she does her impression of a scandalized Southern grandmother crossed with a scandalized Northern gossip columnist.
Also, Fitz and Olivia had gone back to sleeping together for reasons that are just as baffling as they’ve always been. (Since he left office, it’s been even harder to understand why this show needs Fitz. It doesn’t need Fitz. Nobody needs Fitz. Even Fitz doesn’t need Fitz. So. To recap: The final season of Scandal has been about the need for people who are greedy and dishonest and power-hungry to nonetheless draw a line and not become complicit with evil if the country is to survive, even if it means they will be ruined on account of the parts where they were greedy and dishonest and power-hungry.
- It’s about sacrifice for your country, weirdly enough, after all the murders and teeth (dino and human).
- How did it end? The last episode was, if anything, a bit anticlimactic.
- The problem with making every episode seem like it has to be the last stop on a train to Bonkersville is that you don’t leave yourself anywhere to go.
This is a show that already showed a woman eating her own wrist until it was so bloody they let her out of jail. What wouldn’t feel anticlimactic? In many ways, this felt like an episode of Scandal, just like others that have seemed like huge reversals and later amounted to less than met the eye.
There was a patented Scandal “everything is different now!” moment when Olivia’s father, Rowan, showed up to testify to Congress that he was indeed the mastermind of B613 — that for years, he’d been pulling the strings behind the scenes, choosing presidents and wars, running everything while they went about their pantomime of power.
Joe Morton, who plays Rowan, delivered a final monologue that underscored how much frustration with racism has always played into Rowan’s maneuvering, just as it’s played into how he fathers Olivia. Honestly, though, if this were not the series finale, it’s nothing they couldn’t have bypassed. There was an exception to the Just Another Episode feel of the finale, in that it brought a final sacrifice: the sweet, mostly decent David Rosen, too good for the world of Scandal, David stood up to NSA chief and Bad Guy Jake and survived, only to be murdered by vice president and Bad Guy Cyrus, who had been goaded by Jake into doing his own dirty work for once.
While it’s probably honest to acknowledge that David was easy prey for these people who were so much more wicked than he was, to lose him does feel like the rest of the story was just rearranging monsters on the deck of the Titanic. Scandal killed its last character with a real and reliable conscience, and there was barely time to mourn him.
It all worked out in the end, sort of. Bad Guy Jake was blamed for everything and ended up in jail. Everyone else was exonerated for some reason, as if discovering a secret government agency that’s been operating illegally for decades would end in one guy getting arrested and then everyone shrugging and going off to Pizza Hut for lunch.
- But the priority of the Scandal finale wasn’t the B613 stuff.
- It was what it was always destined to be: bringing Fitz and Olivia their happy ending.
- Off to Vermont where you’ve always dreamed of going, you murderers! Enjoy your jam-making, you election-fixers, you plane-blower-uppers! I’ve never doubted that this would be the backbone of the ending, despite how much some viewers (ME ME I ADMIT IT’S ME ME ME) don’t care about their love story one bit.
This is the predetermined end for them, and yet it is only the beginning, as their texts to each other undoubtedly say. Olivia left the White House, Fitz picked her up in an SUV, and they presumably drove off to have enormous amounts of sex for several years until they finally went out for breakfast, emaciated but finally otherwise sated. It would have been a mistake to expect Scandal to stop being an amoral show now. It’s always been an amoral show, and it ended as one. Most of the people who have committed horrible acts over the last seven seasons entirely escaped consequences. They got happy endings.
- Olivia now apparently has pleasant dinners with her father, despite all the innocent people he has killed and the misery he has spread.
- It’s all water under the bridge now, all those grand jurors and old girlfriends and inconvenient witnesses.
- There was no justice.
- There was no comeuppance.
- It looked like there might be a message somewhere about paying the costs of your own bad acts to save the country, but there wasn’t.
Other than Jake, who took the fall for everything, these people all walked away clean, despite many of them having done enough to earn life in prison. Olivia didn’t stick around to help clean up the mess she’d made. She didn’t really come clean about what she’d done, not publicly.
- One of her boyfriends took the fall for her, and the other one took her away in a black SUV.
- She wore a great white jacket, though.
- And Abby, David’s true love, whose life Olivia pretty thoroughly ruined in about six different ways, ended up at the cemetery putting a rock on David’s headstone.
- And somehow she seemed at peace and perfectly content with everything.
She knows that it’s all OK, because Olivia and Fitz really, really love each other. Vermont and everything. The end.

KERRY WASHINGTON Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the series finale of Scandal, Read at your own risk. Most of Scandal ‘s fearless Gladiators ultimately got a happy ending Thursday, finally taking down Cyrus and ensuring that Mellie would stay in the White House for years to come — but not everyone made it out of the series finale alive.
- In the wake of Olivia (Kerry Washington) going public with the news that black-ops organization B613 has secretly been controlling the White House for more than 30 years, the whole team of Gladiators was called in to testify.
- But after Lonnie (Michael O’Neill) killed himself to ensure Olivia (Kerry Washington) would get that closed-door hearing about B613, David Rosen (Joshua Malina) was basically reinstated on the case, so Cyrus (Jeff Perry) sent Jake (Scott Foley) to kill him.
Though David Rosen appeared to initially escape death by effectively talking Jake out of shooting him, Cyrus pretended to offer a confession, but instead poisoned David. That’s right, the white-hat-wearing attorney general of the United States did not survive the series finale.
He was really the last good, pure person there,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes told EW ahead of a live table reading and panel benefitting the Actors Fund, which was moderated by EW’s Henry Goldblatt. “And for that to happen, he was the last hero they had left, and in that sense, it felt necessary.” Malina actually found out the truth about Rosen’s fate the night before the table read, during a phone call with Rhimes.
“We had a great conversation,” Rhimes said. “He was actually kind of excited and honored, which for Josh was amazing. It was a slightly emotional phone conversation for us, and it was lovely.” “At the time I was told,” Malina said, “My heart starting pounding in a way that I never would’ve predicted, which was revealing to me that my buy-in was much deeper than I realized, that this would actually land with some kind of emotional impact on me.
Once I had a moment to process it and think about it, I was delighted. I feel like in the universe of Scandal, it makes all kinds of sense. I’ve always argued that David was among the better people, and the better people don’t fare well int he universe of Scandal, so I thought it made a lot of sense.
When I ultimately saw the script, I was delighted about what Shonda had written for me.” Shooting his death scene, however, was physically difficult, and ultimately took roughly five to six hours to film. “I was delighted that they had a stunt double on hand, but we never used him,” Malina said.
- It was so physically demanding that I didn’t have too much time to think about what it meant emotionally, so I just saw it as a physical challenge.
- I knew I still had scenes to film after it that would take place earlier in the episode.” The rest of the cast found out the shocking news at the table read.
“They had tissues set up all over the tables, and we used them all,” Washington says. “I was proud of our writers, I was like, ‘Good for them, all the way to the end, they are going for it.'” But Cyrus didn’t end up in the Oval, as Rowan (Joe Morton) ended up testifying against him, ultimately landing Jake behind bars and forcing Cyrus’ resignation.
- While Abby (Darby Stanchfield) loses out on a happy ending with David dead, her fellow Gladiators do get to stand in the sun.
- Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Charlie (George Newbern) get married, and live happily ever after with Huck (Guillermo Diaz) by their side.
- True to Washington’s tease that the ending would be somewhat open-ended, the series finale closed sometime in the future, in which Olivia Pope’s portrait is hanging in the National Portrait Gallery, meaning Olivia does someday make it to the White House, either as POTUS or first lady — but it’s up to the audience to decide which.
“There’s a moment at the end of the episode where you know that she’s sort of heading off into her future, and so it felt like the right way to go because we’re not going to say what that future is,” Rhimes said. “I know there are people who are like, ‘I wanted her to end up with a man,’ and that’s just not a thing I’m going to write for any character.
I can’t teach a woman that her job in life is to end up with a man as a happy ending to a story — ever. Even if she can be happy in a relationship, that’s not going to be the ending of anybody’s story ever, whether or not she’s going to fall in love and be happy. So that wasn’t going to be a thing we were going to do.” Side note: Bellamy Young, who plays Mellie Grant, revealed to EW that Rhimes’ daughter Harper is among the duo of young women looking at Olivia’s portrait.
According to Washington, there is a definitive answer as to whether Olivia is POTUS, but we’ll never find out. “I thought it was really special,” Washington said. “I love that she left us wondering. She says she knows exactly what it means, and maybe the other writers do, but we don’t, and I think that’s pretty fantastic that we get to leave with questions, we get to leave with the gift of using our own imaginations to complete this story.” Check back for more Scandal series finale coverage on EW.
What does 752 mean in Scandal?
Guillermo Díaz and Jasika Nicole who played the couple Huck & Kim together in this episode are both coincidentally homosexual; one of the greatest pairings Shonda Rhimes put together. 752 is the time Huck briefly met his son, five-years-ago; Javi is now eight-years-old. David Rosen does not appear at all in this episode. Jordan Carreras was replaced by Jaden Betts in season four to play Javi,
Does Fitz ever find out what his dad did to Mellie?
ABC’s political thriller Scandal closed up its third season Thursday with a heart-racing hour that focused on Election Day, as President Fitzgerald Grant looked to lock up four more years in the White House and prevail over his vice president and opposition, Sally Langston, while OPA teamed with B613 to bring down a terror ring led by Olivia’s mother.
PHOTOS: Broadcast TV’s Returning Shows 2014-15 Here are the 20 biggest reveals from the episode: 1. The bomb goes off, and Sally ( Kate Burton ), Leo ( Paul Adelstein ) and Andrew ( Jon Tenney ) are all safe. But Sally uses it to campaign and winds up topping the president among all the networks, which all drop Fitz’s ( Tony Goldwyn ) speech.
It positions her as the front-runner heading to Election Day.2. Jake ( Scott Foley ) knows that Cyrus ( Jeff Perry ) was aware of the bomb and waited to tell the president. It illustrates the great lengths Jake — who is now free of B613 — will go to in order to protect the Republic.

Mellie ( Bellamy Young ), who is still drinking, demands a refund from Olivia ( Kerry Washington ). “I thought we hired her to win!” she says after Liv and Cyrus tell Fitz that he can’t win the election.4.
Aware that his team doesn’t think he can win the election, Fitz tells Olivia that they can move to Vermont and get married (and have two kids and make jam) after he divorces Mellie. It prompts Olivia to break her promise to Mellie that she wouldn’t tell the president about the lengths she went to in order to get Fitz elected.5.
Fitz learns that his father, Big Jerry, raped Mellie while he was campaigning for governor of California, and Mellie tells him that she took a paternity test. “Jerry is your son, not his,” she tells him.

Fitz and Olivia’s plan to run away to Vermont after they lose the election is derailed, as they both know he can’t leave Mellie now after learning that Big Jerry raped her. “I wouldn’t want you if, knowing what you know now, you left her now,” Olivia tells him as they exchange I-love-yous.8.
Fitz and Mellie’s son, Jerry Jr. ( Dylan Minnette ), collapses during Fitz’s last campaign stop. He’s rushed to the hospital and dies from a sub-strain of Meningitis that was recently stolen from Fort Detrick.

Does Huck get killed in Scandal?
‘Scandal’ Recap: Huck Finds Himself In Deep Trouble After two weeks of stressful anticipation, Scandal fans finally found out what happened to Huck after he was shot. Huck was stuck in the trunk of a car as Meg slowly pushed the car over the edge of a cliff.
- The car splashed down into a lake, leaving Huck struggling to get out before he drowned.
- Since Huck was trapped in a car, in a lake, with three bullet holes in his body, he had to go to a safe place in his mind to find the strength to escape.
- So he found himself back in the office, soaking wet, with the full team of gladiators giving him a pep talk.
Even Papa Pope showed up to help get his soldier home. With all of their support, Huck found the strength (and headrest) to break the window and swim to dry land. Once Huck was out of immediate danger, the people who put him there found themselves in immediate danger.
Abby came to Olivia looking for forgiveness, but what she got was a few slaps to the face. Although, she got off easy compared to Meg, who found herself on the wrong side of Quinn’s anger. While torturing Meg to get information, Quinn lost control and slit her throat. The gladiators were at an all-time low with their only suspect dead on the floor.
But after an inspirational speech from Olivia, they got to business finding Huck, dead or alive. Luckily, the found him alive, although, just barely. And everyone held their breath at the hospital until we finally saw Huck take a breath on his own. : ‘Scandal’ Recap: Huck Finds Himself In Deep Trouble

Who married Fitz?
About – For the 100th episode Scandal visited an alternate reality, in which Olivia Pope said “no” to rigging Fitz Grant ‘s election. In this reality, Fitz and Olivia got married shortly after the Presidential election.
Whose baby was Olivia Pope pregnant with?
‘Scandal’ stuns viewers with abortion scene in the season’s winter finale (This is the 13th installment that looks back at celebrity or pop culture news of the week.) Abortion story lines are rarely featured on prime-time television (with a ). When they are, it’s even more unusual that it involves a main character — and that the character goes through with the procedure.
So Thursday night’s “Scandal” stunned quite a few viewers when D.C. fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) had an abortion, a storyline that came out of nowhere. The audience had no idea that Olivia, finally together with President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), was pregnant. Fitz didn’t even know she was pregnant.
In the middle of the episode, viewers suddenly saw Olivia arrive at a medical office and then lie down on an operating table as a doctor began the procedure. There was no dialogue from Olivia — just the sound of “Silent Night” playing in the background, along with voice-over of Olivia’s father Rowan (Joe Morton) delivering this speech in another scene: “Family is a burden a pressure point, soft tissue, an illness, an antidote to greatness.
- You think you’re better off with people who rely on you, depend on you, but you’re wrong, because you will inevitably end up needing them, which makes you weak, pliable.
- Family doesn’t complete you.
- It destroys you.” Once viewers figured out what was happening, “Scandal” trended worldwide on Twitter and some cast members started weighing in: In her executive producer Betsy Beers interviewed Goldwyn and only briefly discussed Olivia’s pregnancy, calling it “the thing which is not spoken of.” “It’s not spoken of in the episode at all,” Beers said.
“It just happens, there’s no lead-up.” “That’s what I thought was so brilliant about it,” Goldwyn added. Before Thursday’s show started, ABC teased that Olivia Pope would make the “biggest decision” of her life, and carried a “due to adult content, viewer discretion is advised” message.
The episode also focused on Planned Parenthood. In a major plot point, Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) — the president’s ex-wife and a junior senator from Virginia — helped kill a Senate spending bill that would have made Planned Parenthood funding discretionary. “By making that money discretionary, you give the people in this room the power to say, ‘You know what? We’re a little over budget this year.
How about we don’t give that little ladies’ organization the full amount they’re asking for?’ So you don’t,” she told her fellow senators. “And then, next year, you give them even less, and even less the year after that, and you keep chipping away at their budget until, before you know it, Planned Parenthood no longer exists.” So Mellie filibustered some help from the vice president Susan Ross (Artemis Pebdani), who stepped in to address the Senate.
- Now, I’m not up here to ask you about abortions which, as you know, only makes up 3 percent of all Planned Parenthood business let’s talk about gonorrhea!”) Still, Mellie almost gave up because of exhaustion.
- I don’t even know why I’m doing this, I’m a Republican,” she groaned in the bathroom to Olivia.
“I just didn’t like telling me what I can’t do.” Eventually, Olivia gave her a pep talk and Mellie talked until the bill was dead. After the episode aired, Planned Parenthood released a statement calling attention to the fact that this is the second time this storyline has happened on a Shonda Rhimes show; in 2011, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) got an abortion on “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 8 premiere.
“Shonda Rhimes used her platform to tell the world that if Planned Parenthood lost funding for contraception counseling, STI testing, cancer screenings, and safe, legal abortion — millions of people would suffer,” the organization said in a statement. “We applaud Shonda Rhimes tonight — and every Thursday night — for proving that when women are telling our stories, the world will pause and watch.
We just hope those in Congress — and throughout the nation — who are steadfast on rolling the clock back on reproductive health care access are taking note.” “Scandal” returns with new episodes in February. : ‘Scandal’ stuns viewers with abortion scene in the season’s winter finale
Why was David Rosen killed?
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Thursday’s series finale of Scandal, For everyone else, grab your red wine and popcorn and put your white hats on. It’s the end of a Scandal- filled era. To find out the meaning behind the final scene of the series finale, read our take here,
Rest in peace, David Rosen. We braced ourselves to say goodbye to Scandal as the ABC drama aired its series finale on Thursday night, but we weren’t prepared to end the show without our beloved Attorney General. Last week’s episode saw Olivia decide to come clean to the public with the shocking truth about B613 after failing to kill Cyrus and stop his plans of taking down Mellie.
This week, it was our D.C. fixer and her old squad against the U.S. government – and something had to give. This week, it was David Rosen. Before even half of the episode aired, Cyrus had killed Rosen in an effort to protect himself and his legacy. But David’s death wasn’t the only shocker Shonda Rhimes hit us with on Thursday night.
