‘Scandal’ Series Finale Recap: The Gladiators Say Goodbye in ‘Over a Cliff’
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Over a Cliff,” the series finale of “Scandal.”

White hats, character deaths, Papa Pope monologues and a boatload of hootch, ABC’s “Scandal” wrapped its seven-season run Thursday night with an hour-long episode featuring the final showdown between the Opa associates and B613, with several callbacks to poignant moments throughout the show’s run.

With the promise secured, Lonnie then shot himself, setting the characters off on a whirlwind of testimonies and a high-stakes chase against Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) and Cyrus Bean

Scandal Series Finale Recap: Who Lived? Who Died? Who Got a Portrait?
Unless this was your first time watching Scandal — in which case, “Yum, yum, Crispy Piggy!” — you probably entered Thursday’s finale with a finite set of questions. We sure did.

Just like the half-dozen finales that preceded it, Thursday’s series ender promised all the trappings of Shondaland, from game-changing revelations to at least one shocking death. And while we didn’t get everything we wanted — the fact that Cyrus Beene still breathes is proof of that — the episode kept up its end of the bargain, more or less.

Scandal: Everything You Need to Know About the Series Finale

Scandal officially ends on April 19 with its seventh season finale. That's right. After that Thursday, we'll no longer see Gladiators patching up political crises, secret organizations turning old friends into enemies, or steamy encounters between Olivia and Fitz. Everything will be handled by then. Before we get too nostalgic, though, here are all of the details that you should know before Olivia Pope's biggest Washington showdown.

"White Hats On, Gladiators Running Full Speed Over a Cliff"

Television maven Shonda Rhimes previously spoke on how the Scandal family will tackle their final episode together."We are going to handle the end the way we like to handle the important things in our Scandal family: all together, white hats on, gladiators running full speed over a cliff," Rhimes indicated in a statement.

With only four episodes left in Scandal‘s run, the battle lines have never been clearer — so why is it taking these characters so long to recognize them?!

Thursday’s harrowing hour began with Charlie receiving an offer he couldn’t not refuse: He was “asked” to sign a confession saying that Mellie hired him to hijack Air Force Two. In exchange for his compliance, he would be fully pardoned once Cyrus becomes Potus — a deal he turned down with a polite “go to hell.”

‘Scandal’ Star Darby Stanchfield on Her TV Directing Debut and the Return of the White Hat
Darby Stanchfield has inhabited the role of Abby Whelan on “Scandal” for seven seasons, but for the upcoming episode “The Noise,” she takes on one of her most important positions yet — director.

“I feel really grateful to have been given this opportunity before the end of the series,” Stanchfield tells Variety. “Shondaland is a great example of one of the companies in this town that’s all about empowering women and people of color, and it was a really, really good opportunity to get in there.”

Stanchfield started shadowing the series’ directors during season 5 after watching co-star Tony Goldwyn behind-the-camera and wondering why she wasn’t trying the thing she, too, had always been interested in. Last season, she took the first step when she teamed up with the show’s writers and producers, including Shonda Rhimes, for a web series entitled “Gladiator Wanted.” She helped develop the series, and directed it as well.
