All the Ways Scandal Has Hidden Kerry Washington's Baby Bump, by the Numbers

Originally posted 04/18/2014 08:50AM

Every half season of Scandal has its own main scandal: the murder of Amanda Tanner, the election rigging in Ohio, the existence of shadowy CIA squad B613. This spring's abbreviated string of episodes has nominally been centered on the reappearance of Olivia Pope's mother, but true Scandal fans know that that's a false-flag operation. The real scandal at the heart of the spring's half-season is the disappearance of star Kerry Washington's ever-growing baby bump, which the show's producers have attempted to hide with the worst cover-up the show has ever seen.

Don't believe us? Here's the evidence, by the numbers. Pin these up to your wall while a funky Motown song plays.

Scandal's Jeff Perry Teases Season 3 Finale

Originally posted 04/17/2014 11:45AM

For any other show, a bomb in a church, a looming election, an attempted murder, the takedown of a shadow government agency, and some face-licking would make for an amazing season finale.

But when you're talking about Scandal, that was just the appetizer. On Thursday, ABC's D.C.-set hit drama, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, wraps up its third season (10 p.m. ET) – and everyone wants to know if it will go out with a bang.

Spoiler alert! In case you missed last week's episode, Olivia's mom, Maya, planted an explosive device in a church where President Grant (Tony Goldwyn) was expected to attend a funeral. The president's chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, was tipped off about the bomb, but decided not to tell anyone about it because the church was already packed with his enemies – while the president was still safely ensconced in the White House.

Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus, dropped a couple hints about what to expect on the finale.

Scandal Costar Reveals Kerry Washington Approved Her Olivia Pope Impersonation

Scandal's Darby Stanchfield: Kerry Washington Approved My Olivia Pope Impersonation

Originally posted 04/04/2014 05:00PM

Forget the president: As far as Scandal's concerned, fixer Olivia Pope is the most powerful person in Washington, D.C. – a challenging role that Kerry Washington pulls off every week.

Which explains why co-star Darby Stanchfield was nervous filming the episode that aired Thursday night, in which her character, Abby, stepped in as Olivia's proxy to help handle the incessant drama swirling in the White House.

"It was pretty crazy," Stanchfield, 42, tells PEOPLE of trying to channel the show's star. She even slipped into Pope's signature style.
