Consider this a spoiler alert if you weren’t tuned into the jaw-dropping season two finale of ABC’s Scandal.
The political drama delivered the show’s most-watched telecast ever as viewers continued to follow the Oliva/Fitz/Mellie love triangle, as well as that pesky, little Defiance “thing” and the attempted murder of our leading lady.
But it was the one-word kicker in the final moments of the season finale that made Gladiators across America say, “What??”
On Thursday, the cast of Scandal sat down in front of an audience at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for their first-ever onstage table read of the show’s finale script. Deadline reports the session ended about 10 minutes into the 10 p.m. airing.
Their reaction? Priceless. And hilariously familiar.
Shonda Rhimes, we salute you.
