‘Scandal’ Series Finale Knows Its Gladiators Did a Lot of Bad Things, but Asks Us to Forgive Them Anyway
[Editor’s note: This review contains spoilers for “Scandal” Season 7, Episode 18, “Over a Cliff”]

Pour out a bottle of Bordeaux for Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), her friends, and her enemies, as Thursday night brought their story to a close. “Over a Cliff” did its best to wrap up major emotional arcs, serve (at least one of) the bad guys official justice, and establish that in the most powerful town in America, Olivia had earned her place at the top.

Hollywood has mined this territory for years, with dozens of scripted true-crime movies and TV series exploring the “why” of those who snap.

But why are we so obsessed? Alex Wolff, who stars in the new movie My Friend Dahmer, about the high school years of the notorious mass murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, has a theory. “People are interested in seeing how things happen and maybe finding out what things could be different,” he tells Et. “Like, what is it about him that’s so different from me, or my next-door neighbor who seems a little bit off? That’s why people are interested in seeing the birth of things like this -- for their own comfort, for their own life
