Good morning, Mr. President.

Scandal's Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant on the ABC hit political drama, took to Instagram on Tuesday morning to share a sleepy video with fans.

"Okay, first day directing 502," said Goldwyn in the video, lying in bed in a dark room. "Got to get up."

On paper, Ghost sounds like it should have been a niche movie. But combining the romance, thriller, ghost story and comedy genres into a single film turned out to be a formula for success when the film hit theaters 25 years ago on July 13, 1990.

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.

Is this the end of Olitz?

In a sneak peek of Thursday's Scandal finale, we see a familiar scene: Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) tenderly talking on the phone as their theme music swells.

It seems as if Liv has finally forgiven him for declaring war in a failed attempt to rescue her from kidnappers. (Just go with it.)

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.

Scandal Recap: Jake Ballard Is Alive – But Is He Back with Olivia Pope?

Originally posted 04/23/2015 11:20PM

Shondaland lost its original leading man Thursday night when Dr. Derek Shepherd was killed off Grey's Anatomy moments after doing what he did best: saving lives.

And yes, we shed our share of tears during that "Chasing Cars" montage.

Luckily for Gladiators, Scandal star Scott Foley was totally tricking us with last week's Twitter troll. Despite basically being stabbed on every inch of his body, Captain Jake Ballard was alive, if not quite well.

Scandal Recap: Olivia Pope's Ex May Have Just Been Murdered

Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) could really use some girl time.

It seems like all of Scandal's leading lady's problems trace back to the men in her life, from her diabolical father to her ex-lovers. But who would have thought she was sleeping with the enemy during her fling with the rando she picked up at a bar?

That's right, Gladiators: In the biggest #TGIT twist of the season, Liv's new man stabbed Jake (Scott Foley) – and it looks like the captain may really be gone for good.

Scandal Recap: Olivia Saves a Man from Death Row, Jake Goes Insane

#TBT to that time Jake (Scott Foley) killed people ... a lot of people.

That was the gist of Thursday night's episode of Scandal, a stark reminder that, as sweetly as the one-time command treats Olivia (Kerry Washington), he's still a trained assassin.

Faced with David's (Joshua Malina) plan to prosecute B613, Jake went into what Huck (Guillermo Díaz) termed "survival mode" – or, as we at PEOPLE call it, a murderous rage.

Or did he? A last-minute twist revealed that it was really Papa Pope pulling all the strings. Olake shippers can breathe a sigh of relief, but it looks like our main Gladiator will have to deal with her daddy issues once and for all.

Scandal Recap: Olivia Pope Pushes Cyrus Beene Down the Aisle

It's his wedding, and he'll throw his groom to the wolves if he wants to.

Thursday night's episode of Scandal focused on Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) the show's most Machiavellian character – and in this political drama, that's saying a lot.

A self-described "filthy monster," Cyrus can go from being Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) mentor and biggest champion to ordering her murder. And this week, his dalliance with prostitute Michael (Matthew Del Negro, who is truly Noah Wyle's clone) finally bit him in the butt.

Scandal Recap: Lena Dunham Goes Fifty Shades of Grey ... and Someone Gets Murdered

Originally posted 03/19/2015 11:25PM

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix.

And just when it looked like her character might be getting a Sex and the City ending, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) gave her a fate more suited for Law and Order: SVU.

Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with – surprise! – a man besides Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn).

That's right, Gladiators: Liv is officially a dominant.
