Originally posted 05/21/2015 06:35PM

It's been one long week since Scandal blew our minds for the final time until fall, and we're fighting a serious #TGIT withdrawal.

Star Bellamy Young already gave us the scoop on the explosive season 4 finale. But before the ABC drama went out with a bang (well, maybe ... the jury's still out on that Huckleberry Quinn cliffhanger), she stopped by the PEOPLE Now studio to talk all things Mellie.

Scandal's Bellamy Young: Fitz Kicking Mellie out of the White House Was 'Monstrous'

Originally posted 05/15/2015 05:30PM

For a while, it seemed like everything was coming up Mellie on Scandal.

Played to steely perfection by Bellamy Young, the first lady overcame the tragic loss of her son, ditching her bathrobe and Uggs for her usual power skirt. She put her ambitions ahead of her husband's and said out loud what we've been thinking for four seasons: She should run for president. She and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) shared tender moments as he threw his support behind her. She won her election for senator.

But it all came crashing down in Thursday night's finale: Rowan (Joe Morton) blackmailed her into facilitating the slaughter of an entire grand jury. Fitz, disgusted, kicked her out of the White House. He reunited with Olivia (Kerry Washington), sealing their renewed romance with a steamy kiss.

Thanks to its central love triangle, Scandal has become a reliable source of steamy love scenes – but Scott Foley has some behind-the-scenes scoop that, unfortunately, will be a real mood killer for Olake shippers.

Foley, who plays Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) sometime lover Jake Ballard, told PEOPLE at The Paley Center for Media Scandal panel on Thursday that filming sex scenes with Washington, 38, during season 3 was "delicate" to say the least.

Scandal Finale Recap: Olivia Battles Papa Pope – and Finally Chooses Her Man

Originally posted 05/14/2015 11:40PM

The finale of Scandal gave us a happy ending – and a cliffhanger that will have us spending our summer wondering if a fan-favorite character lives or dies.

The Gladiators took down B613, if not in the way they'd originally intended. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) finally picked her man. And Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) won her election but lost her husband.

That's right, Olitz shippers: Season 4 ended with Liv and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) locked in a steamy kiss.

What happens when the First Lady of the United States meets the First Lady of Scandal?

A mutual fan freakout, apparently.

Scandal star Bellamy Young tells PEOPLE she behaved like a "paralyzed koala" when she and her TV husband Tony Goldwyn met President Obama and Michelle Obama at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on April 25 – but it sounds like the real-life FLOTUS was just as excited about the encounter.

Scandal Recap: Olivia Helps a Rape Survivor and We Learn Papa Pope's Next Target

Originally posted 05/07/2015 11:30PM

The writers of Scandal haven't been afraid to get political this season, and Thursday night was no exception.

Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) took on a military rape case, and the episode crackled with her passion for justice. Plus, resident torture experts Huck (Guillermo Díaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) tried to get Russell (Brian White) to reveal the meaning of Foxtail, a code word the Gladiators knew only from his call with Rowan (Joe Morton).

Read on to learn whether they succeeded – and for more on the final-act twist that set the show for a sure-to-be-insane finale.

[EMBEDCODE {

}] She's best known as serious Olivia Pope on Scandal but Kerry Washington was playing for laughs when she and Jimmy Fallon did a "lip flip" on Wednesday's Tonight Show.

In the recurring sketch, the pair swapped lips and used weird voices and accents as they sang jingles from Kit Kat and Meow Mix commercials before teaming up for a song about the season finale of her hit show (to the music of Elton John's "Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road").
