After watching the latest episodes of this season, things are heating up quickly and there could be some surprises at the end! Will Sally Langston die when the bomb goes off in the church? Will Olivia’s father, Rowan, be rushed to the hospital in time, after Maya, Olivia’s mother, shot him? Who will go after Maya after she shot Rowan and made plans to bomb the church where the President was going to be? With only one episode left of season three, Scandal has us all wondering what will happen next! After the surprising murder of James Novak a few episodes back, viewers do not know if they should expect another death in the season finale, but it is definitely possible. I could not believe that the Scandal writers killed off James. He had a lot going for him. He had a child, a good job and a husband. But, James kept digging up information about the defiance conspiracy and in the end, he was used to cover up the truth behind the murder of Sally Langston’s husband. James’s murder was passed off to look like a carjacking that went terribly wrong.
During the last episode I was glued to my TV, while I also adamantly checked Twitter to see what others think will happen. Many viewers thought that Mellie’s secret was going to be revealed, but it leaves us thinking that it will be exposed in the season finale. Who is really Jerry’s biological father? The latest episode left us with many cliffhangers and there are several possible outcomes for the finale. What will happen next? As Maya activated the bomb in the last moments of the episode, one or even several characters could die in the finale. Here is a look at some of these characters and potential scenarios.
Sally is at the church where the bomb is located. Jake informed Cyrus about the location of the bomb, but Cyrus decided not to tell anyone. This makes us all think that during the finale the bomb will go off and Fitz’s competition, Sally, could be killed. Leo Bergen, Sally’s campaign consultant, is also seen standing next to Sally at the church. Will Leo die? We also have to consider all of the people at the church attending the senator’s funeral. If the church is not evacuated, many innocent lives will be lost.
Andrew is also inside the church with Sally Langston. Mellie and Andrew have kept their distance ever since Andrew decided that he would rather be a vice president than Mellie’s lover. What will Mellie do if she finds out that Cyrus knew about the bomb? Will Andrew get out in time, or will Mellie be left alone with no man to love her? If Andrew does get out in time, it is possible that he may reconsider his values and end up rekindling his love for Mellie.
After being shot by Olivia’s mother, Rowan is seen gasping for air in the latest episode. In the season finale preview, he is bleeding out and is rushed to the hospital. Will he survive? Viewers were also left wondering what Maya has planned next. Can Olivia Pope use her Gladiator team to find Maya?
A few episodes back, Mellie was shown remembering how Fitz’s father took advantage of her. Mellie is not sure who the biological father of her son is. We thought that Mellie was going to break down and tell Olivia about it, but she kept quiet and is waiting until the paternity test results come back. Will Mellie’s secret be revealed? Is Jerry’s biological father Fitz, Andrew or Fitz’s father?
After Cyrus learned about the location of the bomb, he decided not to tell anyone about it. How will Cyrus live with himself knowing that he could have stopped the church from exploding? Is this his personal revenge after James was killed?
Harrison found out where Maya planned to execute her bomb plans and he was greeted by Adnan Saliff. Will Harrison be able to talk to Adnan and convince her to stop the explosion? Or, will Adnan kill Harrison?
Huck and Quinn
Huck and Quinn, or should I say #HuckleberryQuinn, had a steamy hook up on the latest episode. Will they continue their steamy romance, or will Charlie find out and punish Quinn? Viewers are wondering if Quinn will ever be a Gladiator again, after she became part of B-613 and works for Charlie. Maybe Huck will bring her back to her Gladiator family.
In the middle of all this drama, President Fitz is still trying to win the election. If Sally Langston dies, will the election continue? Maybe Fitz will finally be able to win an election without it being rigged. Or, will Olivia’s complications with Maya and Cyrus’s secret ruin Fitz’s chances of winning fair and square? Olivia is very determined she will do just about anything to make sure that Fitz is reelected for a second term.
Scandal’s season finale airs TONIGHT at 10/9 p.m. cst, on ABC. Make sure to tune in and see this explosive ending, so all (or most) of our questions can be answered!
