Scandal Recap: Olivia Grapples with PTSD, B613 Is Exposed

Originally posted 03/12/2015 11:15PM

Scandal's Gladiators better hold on to their white hats.

Thursday night's episode was mostly a set-up for the next swooping dramatic arc: The takedown of B613 (no, really this time), and possibly your favorite characters along with it.

"You gave me those files," Attorney General David Rosen (Joshua Malina) said in the penultimate scene. "You said, 'Go get the bad guys.' "

"Rosen, we are the bad guys," Jake (Scott Foley) replied.

"Not anymore," David insisted.

But is that really true? Because for all the good the employees of Pope & Associates do, their fixing hasn't exactly followed the letter of the law.

Olitz or No-litz?

When it comes to the couple nickname for Scandal's Olivia Pope and President Fitz, Jimmy Kimmel isn't a big fan.

"They really need to go back to the drawing board on Olitz," Kimmel said while hosting a Paleyfest panel with the ABC drama's cast in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Scandal Recap: Fitz and Mellie Plan Her Political Future as the Show Takes On Ferguson

Originally posted 03/06/2015 12:25AM

In its first episode since Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) escape, Scandal didn't pull any punches.

The ABC drama doesn't openly discuss race often, but when it does – from Olivia's searing "I'm feeling a little, I don't know, Sally Hemings/Thomas Jefferson about this" jab to her father's mantra that she had to be "twice as good" – it's a raw reminder that, even in Shondaland, America is far from color-blind.

Thursday night's episode handled the shooting of a young, unarmed black man – a clear statement on Ferguson's Michael Brown – with profound grace, exploring police brutality, racial identity and grassroots activism from all sides.

From Brooklyn to the Beltway, Lena Dunham is headed to Scandal!

PEOPLE has confirmed that the Girls creator and star, 28, will make an appearance on the Washington, D.C., drama this March, as first reported by EW.com.

Details are scant, but some connection with Olivia Pope & Associates is likely for Dunham's character – not entirely surprising since everyone from Washington, D.C., to Zanzibar has a connection to the cabal of fixers.

Scandal Recap: Which Character Returned to Rescue Olivia Pope?

Originally posted 02/19/2015 11:45PM

Washington's best white hat wearer finally got a white knight to save her – but who?

Fitz (Tony Goldwyn)? Jake (Scott Foley)? Her gladiators: Huck (Guillermo Díaz), Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and Quinn (Katie Lowes)? A returned Papa Pope (Joe Morton)? Or even a resurrected Harrison (Columbus Short)?

Nope. In an unexpected but truly lovely twist, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) was rescued by Stephen (Henry Ian Cusick), who departed Scandal after season 1, apparently falling in with some resourceful Russian mobsters.
