Scandal‘s season four finale is tonight, May 14, on ABC at 9 p.m EST and according to ABC, fans will want to have the tissues at the ready. Fans have already experienced plenty of turns and twists this season. The latest Scandal news suggests that the season four finale will be difficult to match.
The episode is titled You Can’t Take Command and the team, with Olivia at the helm, will make the attempt to take down Rowan and B613 permanently. Fans were shocked to learn that Rowan, Mellie, B613, and “Foxtail” were interconnected in some way. However, audiences are not sure where that is going to lead.
The results of Mellie’s election will be shown in this episode, and there will be answers concerning the Rowan versus the Gladiator battle. It may possibly be more difficult for Olivia’s team to take down Rowan, but Scandal spoilers promise some resolution in this episode.
There are going to be multiple deaths in the season four finale. Scandal seems to suggest that some major characters will be lost. Guillermo Diaz, who plays the character Huck, has guaranteed that fans are going to flip out. Kerry Washington, who plays Olivia Pope, says that there are twists that she did not even see coming, ever. Everyone is a target, and no one is exempt. She says it is “old school Scandal whirlwind of shock and awe.”
There are cast members that say there will be characters that make big decisions, which could cause fans to look at them from a different viewpoint. Huck is trying to get back to his family and even though he has proven before that he is willing to do whatever it takes to reach his goals, he could cross a line that will astound audiences.
Joshua Malina, who plays the character David Rosen, says that Scandal’s season four finale will end in a cliffhanger. Malina does promise resolutions in the future, with extremes developing along the way. There are good and bad things ahead that will torment fans while waiting for season five. However, it has at least been confirmed that ABC will be bringing Scandal back for a fifth season, set to air in the Fall of 2015.
There will be many deaths in the season four finale, and ABC has warned that the deaths will be grim. Olivia will be tormented and shocking events will follow. Fans are aware that the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, is cautious about specific spoilers being leaked, but it is obvious from what the cast has suggested that the season finale will be wild.
After Olivia came back from her kidnapping, the electricity between her and Fitz seemed to fizzle, but fans are hoping that the two will rekindle their love affair at the end of this season. However, the latest peek into the season four finale does have fans questioning if the couple is really over. There is a clip of the show that shows Olivia making an unexpected phone call to Fitz, wishing him luck with Mellie’s election and when she congratulates him on the Brandon bill, she is also reminding him that was the man she voted for. This is followed by a pause, as well as what sounds like a long-term good-bye, and then a click.
Fans were so hoping that at the end of Fitz’s presidential term, that he would live happily ever after with Olivia. However; now that Millie is blazing her own political trail, Fitz cannot leave his wife, and the last thing Olivia needs is more political chaos from the two. The Scandal season four finale is Thursday, May 14 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
