The show featured plotlines that tackled the defunding of Planned Parenthood — a hot topic in the current presidential election — as well as abortion, with Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) ending her surprise pregnancy. Frustrated by a bill that would have classified Planned Parenthood as “discretionary spending,” Republican Senator Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) led a 16-hour filibuster on the Senate floor, reading off a laundry list of items that the bill would have kept intact.
“The ‘Scandal’ writers did their research,” Rhimes tweeted during the show. “Every budget item Mellie recites is actually real.”

Sunday’s Quantico simultaneously gave terrorism suspect Alex a tiny sliver of hope — though she doesn’t know it yet — and put her in the most precarious situation we’ve seen so far.
The hour saw Caleb find (and then, at the behest of his father, bury) the first evidence supporting Agent Parrish’s innocence in the Grand Central bombing. And later, realizing that the feds were closing in after last week’s shootout in Queens, Alex tricked an injured Ryan into boarding a helicopter to safety, then walked into FBI Central to turn herself in.
Look sharp, NATs: Your next assignment is a crucial one.
If you’ve been following ABC’s Quantico, you know thatthe person responsible for blowing up New York’s Grand Central Terminal is somehow connected to recent graduates of the FBI academy— and that rookie Agent Alex Parrish is Suspect Number 1, though she claims she’s being framed.

In the decade since, only three other laugh-track comedies received top series nominations -- "Two and a Half Men" (2006-08), "How I Met Your Mother" (2009) and "The Big Bang Theory" (2011-14) -- but none prevailed. All of that begs the question: Is "Everybody Loves Raymond" TV's last great multi-cam show? -Break- Reactions to Ricky Gervais as Golden Globes host: 'Yes,' 'surprising,' 'lazy' ...
