Each week, Shonda Rhimes offers up three solid hours of Anatomy, Scandal and Murder – a new block of must-see TV. If you're not SPOILER-averse, check out Shondaland's hot-button moments below, which we've ranked from least to most shocking.

5. Grey's Anatomy: An M.D. with a Pretty Loose Definition of the Word "Emergency"
In "All I Could Do Was Cry," Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) spent the entire episode running around trying to find a doctor to replace her and a babysitter for the weekend so that she could fly to Washington, D.C., and have "emergency sex" with Derek (Patrick Dempsey). We get it, he's (Mc)Dreamy, and you've had a rough patch in your marriage, but this is a series that depicts serious love and loss (keep reading). As self-involved as Mer has been over the years, this was a low.

4. How to Get Away with Murder: "Incest Is Best ...?"
It's been obvious since her first appearance that Hannah Keating (Marcia Gay Harden) was an about-to-boil-over pot of resentment and repression, but when police came knocking in "She's a Murderer" to tell her sister-in-law Annalise that the man they shared (Annalise's husband, Hannah's brother) was confirmed dead, things got ugly. Hannah cried "Murder!" and Annalise accused Hannah of loving her brother a little too much.

5. How to Get Away with Murder: Scratch That
Oh, how far Wes (Alfred Enoch) has come from that bumbling first day of law school. Two shots in "Best Christmas Ever" zeroed in on the deep, handmade grooves in the wall above his bed and implied there might be more to those notches than we previously thought. As the Keating Five slowly lost their minds under the stress of keeping the huge secret of Sam's (Tom Verica) murder, Wes was clearly impacted most of all. Now that Sam's body has been found, how much deeper into madness can our beloved naïf plunge?

4. Scandal: Nichols & Dimed Out
Surprise! "Where's the Black Lady" revealed that Vice President Andrew Nichols (Jon Tenney) – whose relationship with Mellie (Bellamy Young) we used to ship so hard – is the evil genius behind Olivia's kidnapping. His plan? Hold Liv (Kerry Washington) in indefinite captivity, exploiting the desperate love of POTUS Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and push the president toward a super Conservative political agenda. When Liv realized that Fitz declaring war still wouldn't be enough for Andrew to let her go, she manipulated Ian (Jason Butler Harner) into selling her to the "highest bidder" instead. Touché, Ms. Pope.

While How to Get Away with Murder's midseason finale revealed that Wes (Alfred Enoch) killed Annalise's (Viola Davis) two-timing husband, fans still don't know the central mystery of who killed college student Lila Stangard – whose body was found in a water tank on her sorority house's roof.

But we may be closer to getting an answer! Here are a few other tidbits to get you ready for Thursday's winter premiere:

Scandal may not last that much longer on ABC, but that doesn't mean the characters have to go away, too.

Creator Shonda Rhimes – who has reportedly said her Kerry Washington drama, unlike Grey's Anatomy, won't last 10 or even 8 seasons – can imagine a drama revolving around B613.
