The cast of "Scandal" may be one of the most social media-savvy set of TV actors around. After the ABC series grew to a bona fide hit during its second season, thanks in part to the fervent Gladiators on Twitter spreading word about their beloved show (also because the show is, you know, Awesome), Kerry Washington and Co. began live-tweeting every episode while fans are watching.
Joining Washington for each East Coast and West Coast airing are her fellow Gladiators Scott Foley, Guillermo Diaz, Katie Lowes, Bellamy Young, Joshua Malina, Darby Stanchfield, Jeff Perry, Tony Goldwyn and Columbus Short. On Thursday (Dec. 12), recurring guest stars Dan Bucatinsky and Joe Morton joined in on the fun as well. If you're not following all of them on Twitter and following along week to week, well, you're doing it wrong.
For those of you not on the "Scandal" Twitter train yet, behold: The »
This flawless hour of television couldn’t have come at a better time. People, this is why Kerry Washington is swimming in nominations.
If last week’s episode of Scandal was considered ‘intense,’ the Dec. 12 conclusion of the midseason finale was a non-stop barrage of heart attacks from which we shall never recover. Not only did we learn the truth about Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) mom, but the fall-out from Daniel’s murder was insane, and some major shifts in power completely changed the way this game is going to be played form now on.
‘Scandal’: 7 Craziest Midseason Finale Moments
1. Cyrus helps Sally get away with murder. I never thought I’d see Cyrus Been and Sally Langston working on the same side — but then again, I never thought I’d see Sally knifing her gay husband in the back, then blaming it on the devil, either. Kate Burton »

You know you're watching "Scandal" when the cover-up of a murder -- the murder of the vice president's husband, in fact -- is hardly the most shocking event of the episode.
The hit ABC drama went into its fall finale on Thursday (Dec. 12) with several balls in the air, what with the three insane cliffhangers left dangling last week. Not only did Sally Langston (Kate Burton) murder her philandering closeted husband, but Quinn (Katie Lowes) was ready to dispatch of Eli (Joe Morton) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) realized her mother (Khandi Alexander) wasn't the angel she thought.
The episode picked right up with Sally and Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman), giving us a peek into the epic fight over his tryst with James (Dan Bucatinsky) that resulted in a letter opener in his back. "I cannot wait until you meet your maker. I cannot wait until you are judged for your lies, »
Rowan was tossed out of B-613 and Huck dismissed Quinn, sending her straight into Charlie’s arms in Scandal’s winter finale, “A Door Marked Exit.”
Scandal Recap: eCyrus Covers Up Murder For Sally Langston
The episode began with Vice President Sally Langston (Kate Burton) reliving the murder of her philandering husband, Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman), for Cyrus (Jeff Perry). She confronted him about the photos, furious with him for putting her chance at the Presidency at risk. Daniel Douglas had had enough and decided to leave her, but, as he walks towards the door, Sally picked up a letter opener from her desk and stabbed him repeatedly in the back. Cyrus is in shock, as is Sally, who cannot stop mumbling about evil, God and the devil. Going over the events leading up to Daniel Douglas’ death – the temptation, the set up, the pimping out of the husband – Cyrus »
In the last new Josh Cam of 2013, Josh Malina and fellow Scandal stars Scott Foley and Dan Bucatinsky are joined by a very important guest star…Bucatinsky’s Emmy Award! The only burning question? How’d it get inside the fridge?
After tonight’s midseason finale of Scandal, we’re guessing that will be among the many burning questions on the brains of Gladiators everywhere as the episode promises to be a jaw-dropper. Make sure you come back to EW tonight for a full recap of the action. Until then, enjoy the latest in EW’s ongoing behind the scenes »

H2-Oh! On Saturday, Kerry Washington attended film and television producer Jennifer Klein's annual holiday party in Los Angeles. Wearing a black, fitted dress with her hair pulled back the Scandal actress arrived around 10 p.m. at the Evian sponsored event with her costars, Scott Foley and Katie Lowes. The expectant mother - who sipped water during the event - was "definitely in a very upbeat, celebratory mood throughout the whole evening," an onlooker tells People. Other guests at the soiree included Lily Collins, Gal Gadot - who was recently cast as Wonder Woman -, Tyra Banks, Topher Grace, »
If this recap is a little out of sorts today, it’s because I was up late watching The Sound of Music: Live! Otherwise known as “The Greatest Event in Television History.” A.k.a. “The TV Show that Broke Twitter.”
But it was actually helpful in terms of writing about Scandal. Because I realized Fitz = Captain Von Trapp, Mellie = the Baroness, Liv = Maria, and the Gladiators = the singing Von Trapp children. And if those comparisons don’t mean anything to you, then you are officially banned from reading my recaps forever.
So this week opens on a lovely little scene of Huck (Guillermo Diaz) torturing Quinn (Katie Lowe), making her watch all the non-singing parts of Sound of Music and practicing do-it-yourself dentistry he learned off YouTube. It’s actually a really brutal, horrific scene, and honestly not what I signed on for with this show, you know? »

Huck turned on Quinn and Cyrus and James hit a breaking point in their marriage in the newest episode of Scandal, “Yolo.”
Huck Tortures Quinn
The episode started where the last one left off, with Huck (Guillermo Díaz) in Quinn’s apartment getting ready to torture the truth out of her. Quinn (Katie Lowes) is duct-taped, lying on the floor, completely at Huck’s mercy. While Huck claims he doesn’t want to hurt her, he’s practically salivating at the thought of hurting her. Because they’re friends, he’s going to let her keep all her fingers and toes. Instead, he goes straight for the teeth. He’s only able to rip one out before he has to go help Liv (Kerry Washington) deal with her mother (Khandi Alexander).

Not since Felicity's Team Ben or Team Noel situation has a TV love triangle been so closely followed, meticulously analyzed and hotly debated. Scandal's dynamic trio of Olivia (Kerry Washington), Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Jake (Scott Foley, a repeat love triangle offender), has captured the attention of shippers everywhere, and while fans and critics have their own opinions on the matter, it's time that Kerry herself tells the world which side she's on. While shooting her first commercial for Neutrogena (which includes a gig as a creative consultant), the glowing mom-to-be talked about how everyone always asks if she's Team Jake or Team Fitz. Ready for your official answer? "I'm team Shonda »
"I so believe in this show. It's the first show that I've been on in a long time where I am a fan," Scott told Access Hollywood at the 2014 Miss Golden Globe Announcement in Los Angeles on Thursday evening. "Like, I can't wait to find out what happens not just to my character, but to all the other characters. And I live-Tweet with the fans and I love ...

Speaking with E! News, the current "Scandal" star admitted that he'd love to stage a mini-reunion with Keri Russell -- albeit on her hit FX thriller, "The Americans." "I would love to do a guest-starring thing on 'The Americans,'" he says. "We have so many shows that we watch, but my wife and I DVR that show. Oh my God, Keri Russell is amazing. Matthew Rhys is amazing. Noah Emmerich is amazing. The whole cast is fantastic, and the fact that's a period piece and they get to wear these f***ing clothes and dress up ... I mean, it's amazing."
That said, Foley reveals he can't reach out Russell to arrange a possible guest appearance: "I don't have her cell phone number! »
Olivia Pope is a magnetic, powerful, and ultimately amazing woman. She’s made many mistakes, but her victories and pure heart far outweigh any bad she has done. (Like, you know, rigging a presidential election.) However, she has one major Achilles’ heel that will ultimately be her downfall — her gut, especially when it comes to choosing friends.
When you think about it, you can’t really blame Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) for being a bad judge of character. As we saw during Scandal‘s Nov. 21 episode, “Vermont is for Lovers, Too,” her mother is a capable of biting the flesh off of her own wrist, and as we’ve seen throughout this entire season, her father is… well, who he is. But during Scandal‘s insane third season, one thing has become abundantly clear: Olivia Pope is a terrible judge of character — and don’t they say you are the company you keep? »

Hm...is it just a coincidence that Scandal and The Americans, two of the best dramas on TV, both star Felicity alums? We think not! While Keri Russell is busy kicking ass and taking names as a spy on The Americans, her former TV beau Scott Foley (or, we really like to call him, Noel freakin' Crane!) is now wooing another Kerry (Washington) on ABC's hit Scandal. (Well, that is when he's not busy killing people as a B613 agent.) And after the slower pacing of Felicity and some of his other projects, Foley tells E! News reading the script for Scandal's next episode (airing Dec. 5) was basically a full body and brain workout. "So much amazing, mindblowing stuff happens, I sent out a tweet after the »
Liv shows off this week’s $5,000 overcoat.
Let’s kick things off this week with the juicy gay bedroom farce involving Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and his totally reasonable, well-thought-out plan to gain leverage over the Vice President by Pimping Out His Own Husband! (And congrats to Backlot reader sophea who totally called that in the comments last week.)
I totally don’t understand why Cyrus doesn’t just hire some hot male escort to use as manbait, given that was exactly what he did last week with a woman. Maybe he’s exhausted the White House’s prostitution budget and needs to improvise? And you have to seriously wonder about the wisdom of a plan that even Mellie (Bellamy Young) considers too low and cautions you to be wary of endangering your marriage.
But Cyrus plows right ahead, telling James (Dan Bucatinsky) that to make up for being such a »

Well, it was bound to happen: Olivia Pope's ghost of a mother has found her.
After last week's horrifying trip into Mellie Grant's past, the Thursday (Nov. 21) episode of "Scandal" snapped its focus back onto She Who Wears the White Hat, Kerry Washington. And, as in most weeks, Liv was put through the ringer.
Not only did she lose a client (So long, Lisa Kudrow! We barely knew you!), but she regained her forbidden love and a zombie of a mom. First, the love. While Liv was busy at work with Opa to track down that person missing from the flight Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) down way back when, he continues to call her, now that he knows her dad is Rowan/Eli/the boogeyman (Joe Morton). She tells him to leave her alone, she smashes her Fitz phone, but, like Jake (Scott Foley) sadly says, she knows it won't stop him. »
So…We just fell in love with Mama Pope. Don't really care if this new Scandal character, played by Khandi Alexander, turns out to be the worst human being who ever lived, because we are officially Team Maya. Thanks for playing, everyone else on the show! Alexander, who returns in Thursday's episode as [Spoiler Alert] Olivia's (Kerry Washington) not-actually-dead mother Maya, just chatted with us and spilled these five amazing confessions: • She is stalking Lisa Kudrow. • She is Team Mellie. • She is Team Scott Foley. (Aren't. We. All.) • She wants a Scandal »
When Scott Foley joined "Scandal" in Season 2, his character Jake Ballard threw the 'shippers for a loop by threatening the love between Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Now a series regular on the hit ABC series in Season 3, Foley admits the role is probably his sexiest.
When discussing his TV career, from Noel on "Felicity" to his current role, Foley tells People it's Jake who he thinks is the hottest. "Jake is definitely sexier -- he takes the cake. Sexiness comes with age and Noel was a little too naive for there to be anything sexy about him," he says. "Jake would definitely win that battle."
Foley, who was named the magazine's Sexy Man of the Week for the week of Nov. 10, admits that he's come a long way from his "big geek" phase right out of high school. "I was a bit of a late developer. »
var brightcovevideoid = '2837004065001'; His piercing eyes? His easy smile? Or maybe just his ability to get down and dirty with his two kids in the family's chicken coop? Whatever it is, Scott Foley is still wondering what earned him the latest title of People's Sexy Man of the Week. "I was flattered, of course. My wife [Marika] was confused. My publicist was surprised. I never considered myself sexy, but I'll take it!" the Scandal star, 41, jokes to People. The actor has certainly come a long way since his younger years, a time when Foley, then fresh out of high school, »

Opa learns of Olivia's devastating secret as the team looks to dig up intel on why Rowan and Fitz would take down a plane with her mother on board.
Will Olivia Pope & Associates "go over a cliff" to help the top Gladiator?
In an exclusive first-look clip from Thursday's "Everything's Coming Up Mellie" episode, Olivia (Kerry Washington) becomes the client when she tells Abby (Darby Stanchfield), Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Harrison (Columbus Short) that her father Rowan (Joe Morton) is responsible for ordering a plane with her mother, Maya (Khandi Alexander), on board to be shot down.

As if the looks on her team's faces weren't heartbreaking enough, she reveals another complicated piece to their current puzzle: President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) was the pilot instructed to carry out Rowan's mission.

Last season, the ratings for ABC's Scandal were bigger than they had been in year one. Will this show continue to get more popular in season three? We'll have to wait and find out.
On Scandal, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) protects the images of the most powerful people in Washington but now it's her own reputation that needs help. This season, the cast also includes Tony Goldwyn, Katie Lowes, Bellamy Young, Scott Foley, Guillermo Diaz, Columbus Short, Joshua Malina, Jeff Perry, and Darby Stanchfield.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.
