Worst. Morning. Ever. Not to be over-dramatic or anything, but we can literally think of nothing worse to see first thing in the morning than a bloodied Scott Foley lying on a table. Can you? Unfortunately, that's exactly what one of the Gladiators stumbles upon in the insanely intense opening scene of Scandal's next episode, "First Lady Sings the Blues," after Jake's (Scott Foley) been left for dead by Rowan's (Joe Morton) secret henchman Russell (Brian White). In the exclusive sneak peek above, Quinn (Katie Lowes) is just casually going through her morning routine at the Opa office (coffee, newspaper, etc.), completely oblivious to the handsome mess lying on the conference »
Nooooooo! In case you somehow missed all the tears and tweets last night, Scandal broke our hearts into millions of tiny little pieces. How? By killing one of our favorite characters. (Spoiler alert!) At the very end of the episode, Olivia's (Kerry Washington) seemingly random hookup buddy Russell (Brian White) turned out to be one of Papa Pope's (Joe Morton) henchman and attacked Jake (Scott Foley) at the Opa offices, stabbing him. Multiple times. In a promo for next week, Jake was declared "dead." Let us repeat: Noooooo! However, after several glasses of wine and multiple pints of Ben & Jerry's (Shout-out to Jimmy Fallon for the awesome "Tonight Dough" flavor!), we're, »
Looks like it's really true! Jake Ballard has been killed off and Scott Foley is leaving Scandal! In a shocking ending to Thursday, April 16's action-packed episode of the hit ABC show, Ballard was stabbed in the stomach by Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington)'s new boyfriend Russell (Brian White). And as fans raced to Twitter to talk about whether that was really it for Foley's character, the man himself joined in the chat to say a final farewell to the Scandal fans. "So, there it is. Thank you Twitter for [...] »
(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Scandal.”) “Scandal” is known for its twists and turns, but Thursday night’s episode shocked even the most hardened fan. The episode titled “White Hat, Red Shirt” should have been a teaser that one character would end up covered in blood. The unfortunate victim was Jake (Scott Foley), who sadly looks unlikely to survive. Who perpetrated the killing was even more of a surprise, as Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) new lover, Franklin Russell (Brian White) — whom many assumed was a hapless victim himself »

Scandal's resident problem-solver was on the rebound this week, and it's time to get caught up on everything you need to know about her complicated love life. What's The Story, Morning Glory?

#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 »

Is Scandal back to its classic self?
Whereas the previous episode took a significant step in that direction, this week’s hour seemed to complete the long-awaited round-trip, putting Olivia in full, nearly unfettered fixer mode. We had a provocative Case of the Week (an X-rated tell-all by “Kinky Sue,” played by Girls‘ Lena Dunham), and Quinn and Huck (mostly) acting like old-school, not-overly-angsty Gladiators.
Also, Olivia washed those men right out of her hair and got her groove back, and there was just the right dash of political machinations. »
Whether there is a heaven above, a hell below, or aliens in different galaxies, no one can seriously dispute that human beings are complicated. The self-proclaimed son of God comes to understand that the hard way in the upcoming comedy/drama "Walter," and today we have an exclusive clip form the film. Directed by Anna Mastro and starring Andrew J. West, Justin Kirk, Neve Campbell, Leven Rambin, Milo Ventimiglia, Brian White, Peter Facinelli, Virginia Madsen, Jim Gaffigan and William H. Macy, the story follows a mild-mannered ticket taker burdened with the responsibility of determining the eternal fate of every living human. But a ghost stuck in limbo forces him reconsider his earthly mission and perhaps even seek professional help, and this scene with the young man's mother makes clear the strain is beginning to take its toll. "Walter" opens in limited release on March 13th as well as on all major VOD providers, »

Where does your soul go after you die? Walter knows. He's the self-proclaimed son of God who can tell just by looking at someone whether or not they'll go to heaven or hell. But regular life isn't so easy to figure out, as you'll see in the first trailer for the appropriately titled "Walter." Starring Andrew J. West, Justin Kirk, Neve Campbell, Leven Rambin, Milo Ventimiglia, Brian White, Peter Facinelli, Virginia Madsen, Jim Gaffigan and William H. Macy (phew), the story finds our hero, a movie ticket-taker, facing a couple of human problems: he's got feelings for the candy counter girl but can't figure out how to approach her, while he's also dealing with a ghost stuck in limbo who doesn't know which way his final fate will lead. Luckily, Walter has a psychiatrist of sorts to help him out. The film arrives in limited release on March 13th as »

She had the rights to the book and knew the author really well. And »
