ABC's "Scandal" finale closed the climactic second season with the show's biggest bombshell yet: the mysterious Rowan (Joe Morton), the B613 boss who has been threatening Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and giving Jake (Scott Foley) his orders, is also Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) father. Move over, Darth Vader.
"When we read it, we were just really blown away," Washington told The Huffington Post on the red carpet for the Television Academy's "Scandal" live table read on May 16. "What's funny is that the writers do that to us every week and then we pay it forward [to the audience]."
"I knew all along," Morton smugly revealed to a packed house during the cast Q&A that followed the table read.

Thursday's "Grey's Anatomy" finale might not have seen an actual death ... yet, but the superstorm-centric episode did see what appears to be the death of some of the show's most shipped couples: Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) cheated on Callie (Sara Ramirez) with Lauren (Hilarie Burton), leading to a blow-up fight where Arizona revealed her repressed feelings about Callie amputating her leg at the beginning of the season; Cristina (Sandra Oh) walked away from Owen (Kevin McKidd) after realizing she could never give him what he wants; and Bailey (Chandra Wilson) blew up at Webber (James Pickens Jr.), calling him an alcoholic, and at the end of the "Grey's Anatomy" finale she was unaware that he's unconscious in the basement of the hospital. (And yes, we realize the last isn't a romantic pairing, »

Fans are in mourning after the ninth season finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ but are their tears premature?
The Grey’s Anatomy season finale ended with an epic cliffhanger involving one of Grey Sloan Memorial’s most beloved employees — I won’t say who until after the jump — but there’s a slight catch: We’re still not sure if the victim is actually dead!
Said victim was the Chief (James Pickens Jr.), but the question remains: Did he really die? Water and electricity certainly seems like a lethal combination, but we didn’t get official confirmation during the episode, and several pieces of information have HollywoodLife.com thinking Richard might be alive and well!
James Pickens Jr. Already Signed On For Season 10

Grey’s Anatomy’s season finale was everything you’d expect from a Grey’s Anatomy season finale, filled with tension, action, heartbreak — and even a possible death!
Note: We said possible because the fate of Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), who last night was electrocuted and last seen on the floor in a desolate part of the hospital, was left up in the air. So have we said goodbye to yet another member of our beloved team of doctors? “That’s such an interesting question! I love that people are asking that question,” Rhimes told EW last night »

The finale of "Scandal" was watched by over 9 million people on Thursday. That marks a huge jump from the start of the second season last fall when just 6 million were tuning in to watch this political drama on ABC. Indeed, the show now rivals lead-in "Grey's Anatomy" for the top slot among the coveted demo of viewers 18 to 49. Credit this rise in ratings to a combo of compelling storytelling by "Grey's" creator Shonda Rhimes and heightened interest in star Kerry Washington. She saw her profile rise big-time with her turn in last winter's Oscar-winning "Django Unchained." She plays political fixer Olivia Pope who is involved both professionally and personally with the president (Tony Goldwyn). The show has just that right blend of bedroom and boardroom scenes to generate a lot of water cooler talk. Washington sits in seventh place among those vying for the six »
Los Angeles — Forget the DVR.
Not this time. Not after this long of a wait.
Millions of fans actually watched the season-two finale of the ABC drama "Scandal" the old-fashioned way: on a TV screen, as it was fed from the network to their local affiliates.
But a crowd of approximately 700 at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood experienced this "Scandal" episode differently Thursday night. The audience, comprised primarily of Emmy voters and their guests, got a live performance by the majority of the show's cast members. Star Kerry Washington and company sat in chairs on the Academy stage facing the audience, and recreated the episode's so-called "table read." They delivered dialogue and stage directions directly from the finale's script.
"Scandal" spins around crisis manager Olivia Pope (played by Washington), a political fixer who could use some fixing herself.
On the arrivals line, Washington said that »
The über creator talks time jumps, a new mole and more. (Stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled!)
Still dizzy from the insanely twisty Scandal season finale? So are we, which is why we’re glad creator Shonda Rhimes and the show’s cast were able to (sort of) clear things up during a panel discussion May 17 in Hollywood.
‘Scandal’ Season 3 Spoilers
Did Olivia’s own father try to have her killed? Shonda’s answer is, basically, maybe. “B613 did seem to be trying to kill her, kind of,” she admitted. “At the very least, Rowan was trying to get Jake to have sex with her and then make a tape of it, which seems creepy on many levels, right? … I don’t know if they were trying to kill her, that’s up to interpretation.”

Last night’s wild season 2 finale of Scandal featured a number of shocking revelations and a big moment for our girl Quinn. We caught up with Scandal creator and showrunner Shonda Rhimes after an Academy of Television Arts and Sciences cast reading of the finale to ask her a few questions. Be warned, though, if you haven’t seen the season finale of Scandal, there are only spoilers below.
“We call it the “I’m Quinn, bi-ch” moment,” said Rhimes of the scene where Quinn jams that drill into Billy Chambers’ chest as the blood splatters all over her face. »

Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you haven’t watched the ninth season finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy!’
Promos for the May 16 season finale of Grey’s Anatomy promised an explosive ending, but they didn’t say anything about a fatal tragedy! So who was the unlucky victim? Drumroll please…
The Chief (James Pickens Jr.)!
Yes, it appears the mighty Richard Webber met his untimely end after coming in contact with water and electricity. (I could have told him that was a bad idea, for the record.) We weren’t given official confirmation of his death during this episode, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t lose him forever. Grey’s has a way of being tricky like that.
Silver lining? At least Richard will be reunited in heaven with Adele (Loretta Devine), who died back in January after Bailey’s wedding.
(See what Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted about the potential death. »

Spoiler alert: Do not read if you haven’t watched the ninth season finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ yet!
We were absolutely shocked by the final scene on the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy on May 16. Lives were in jeopardy throughout the entire episode (as expected), but the potential death of a longtime series regular left us reeling.
Grey’s Anatomy Death — Shonda Rhimes Tweets About Ending
Shonda tweeted on May 16, “Man down,” following the Grey’s finale. Could this be confirmation that Richard, the former Chief of Seattle Grace Mercy West (now known as Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital), is a goner?

Grey’s Anatomy. No matter what goes on during a season, you are always able to pull off an unforgettable finale. And"Perfect Storm” was no exception.
From explosions to operating in the dark, to the arrival of a beautiful McBaby Boy and the realization of feelings by many of the doctors, the hour was jam packed.
Grey-Sloan Memorial experienced power outages and a bus crash during an intense super storm. The hour was loosely based on Super Storm Sandy hit the East Coast endured this year. I live on the East Coast, and trust me, it wasn’t pretty. As always, Shonda Rhimes company found a way to do it justice.
Tiny Babies & Low Batteries. Arizona, Jo and Alex faced the challenge of keeping the Nic-u up and running with the loss of power and no batteries for the ventilators. Who was there to help? Lauren, of course. »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday's "Perfect Storm" episode of Grey's Anatomy.] Grey's Anatomy's Shonda Rhimes said there would be an "emotional death" in the season nine finale and was very right -- on multiple levels. During Thursday's "Perfect Storm," several couples were presented with life-altering scenarios as multiple story lines accounted for the figurative death the showrunner warned was coming. Here's a look at how everyone fared in the superstorm, ranked in order of how big of an emotional impact their story line had on us.

It says a lot about Thursday’s Grey’s Anatomy finale that the C-section Meredith has during the big storm (!) in the dark (!) is arguably its least dramatic incident. But it’s true! In fact, no sooner has her and Derek’s McBaby been delivered than panic sets in. Why? Read on and find out!

When Scandal premiered, I never imagined that I’d one day tell people that it gives me the same kind of crazy rush that I used to get from 24.There’s a lot less gore, of course; people get killed on Shonda Rhimes’ ABC drama, which ends its second season tonight, and there have been a few intense scenes of torture, courtesy of a subplot involving Guillermo Diaz’s former Black Ops soldier, Huck, and bits of Homeland-style, anything-for-a-gasp preposterousness. (The president was shot in the head during an assassination attempt, recovered rather quickly, but became unbearably sour and scatterbrained, started drinking, basically murdered a sitting Supreme Court justice, and is now considering not running for a second term because he’d rather spend time with his mistress.) But for the most part the show’s action is more of the West Wing variety: executive branch power plays, bloodthirsty declarations »

Steven Petrow wrote the book on queer etiquette, literally. Steven Petrow's Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners addresses everything from social graces at same-sex weddings to current queer verbiage. Petrow also writes a bi-monthly column called "Civil Behavior" for the New York Times, in which he answers questions from gay and straight readers about good gay behavior. People who seek out books and newspaper articles on how to behave most civilly toward their fellow human beings are usually the people who need the advice least of all, and so even though Petrow's column and subsequent discussions on his Facebook page take place in the age of mass Internet vitriol, the conversations are usually quite affable, even when they're about hot button issues.
But not this month. No, this month Petrow answered a question from a reader who wanted some help coming out as bisexual, »

The "Grey's Anatomy" finale is upon us and things are only going to worse when the superstorm really hits Grey Sloan Memorial.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) goes into labor in The Huffington Post's exclusive sneak peek above and, of course, there are some complications. Just as she finds out she needs a C-section, the power goes out at the hospital.
"This is not how I wanted to do this," Meredith says as she undergoes the surgery. "You once said that about marrying me," Derek (Patrick Dempsey) lightheartedly replies.
But soon, there are only tears instead of smiles in the operating room.
"Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes has teased Meredith's struggle with giving birth and told TV Guide that in the finale, Meredith goes into labor under conditions that are "the exact opposite of any conditions under which anybody ever in the world would want to have to give birth. Ellen joked, »
