Kerry Washington Scandal

The final episode of ABC's political TV thriller Scandal aired on Thursday night. The show was canceled after 7 seasons. Scandal starred Kerry Washington as savvy Washington, D.C. "fixer" Olivia Pope.

Blogger Tamara Tattles has the recap of the final episode if you didn't watch last night.

via Tamara Tattles:

"In the end, Shonda refused to give us the happily ever after in Vermont and instead chose to hint that Olivia was in the white house as either POTUS or first lady.

I was disappointed in the finale all the way around. This means I can stop trying to fit Station 19 into my Thursday nights. I’m over Shonda.

My final thoughts are familiar. I’m over Shonda. Let her move on to Netflix. I don’t have it, don’t want it and will probably still watch Grey’s but the new stuff on ABC and Neflix? I’m sorry. I’m just not interested. I’ll miss the hell out of the Scandal cast though. For eleventy billion seasons she set up a choice. Will she choose Fitz or Jake? Or at the very least will she find happiness? She punked out on answering the question because she doesn’t want to end with a woman needing a man? Seriosluy? What a fucking cop out. She literally had dueling love stories for YEARS and this is what we get? Fuck off Shonda. I’m one of those crazy people who thinks women don’t have to get married or have kids either. But if I write a years long romantic story, not knowing what happened to Olivia is a cop out."

    It musta been pretty disappointing

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I never watched the show religiously a few episodes when it first came out..the end..

  • Rayne

    Same

  • FukkFolks2018

    Yes. Why yes you salty ass lady who wrote this (tamara)...let her move right on to Netflix. First its black women dont have any opportunities in network TV. For years and years and years it was THAT. Shonda comes along and creates some. Now its gone on to (supposed-alleged) racist Netflix THEN--BYE.

    Which one is it folks? Some of us are exhausting af sometimes.

    Worse series finale ever. Totally rushed, predictable, and an insulting to the fans that tuned in the last 7 seasons.

  • Browneyes

    I was sad for Abbey

  • Stacey J

    I agree - there were season and mid season finales that were way better.

  • SweetTEE

    Girl where did you hear that? post a link or sum lol

  • SweetTEE

    I think she probably did that because of her issues with the network..smh

  • WutizstillHERE!

    RALO had nealy ONE MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF WEED ON THE PLAN HE FLEW INTO ATLANTA IN...TODAY WILL BE A SAD DAY FOR THOSE WHO CELEBRATE 420 TODAY ROFL
    Again flossing on FB is the biggest snitch there is. Yall all know that a black man with money and no visible income source outside of rapping was gone catch their attention.. and he can't say it was personal use either..

  • Kanyade

    I was with Scandal until it became the 'Liv/Fitz/Jake From State Farm, love triangle. I'm thrilled that the series showcased some amazing performances by veteran talent.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I think she’ll have better shows on Netflix.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    been stopped watching

  • free

    speaking of scandal, did anyone listen to V-103 this a.m.? a side chick is about to bust an atlanta executive with one child and a wife who just signed up for pilates wide open with her receipts, which might include a baby on the way.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto
  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was. No thriller. No umpth. No love. Just boring like it's been for a while. Jake just turning himself in seemed dumb. Cyrus just resigning because Olivia said so....dumb. It was just all done. Not like a good cliffhanger but like a poorly written episode that will continue to next week. This was horrible.

  • Anunnaki

    It wont surprise nobody, they all got skeltons, ALL of them

  • Anunnaki

    Dumb, what else can u say..

  • Anunnaki

    Remember when chili say usher did the no no, thats why they broke up..

  • Anunnaki

    Lol, never started.

    I stopped watching after season 5. Will probably watch during the summer on my android box. I'm surprised to hear the ending was disappointing. I thought Shonda was gonna do the damn thing...

  • shay2shaymd

    Do tell where you got the information from. Enquiring minds wants to know.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I'm glad its over, even though I watched it I was tired of seeing Olivia stomp through the oval and D.C

  • Yoni7

    ONE MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF WEED ON THE PLANE...
    ____________
    HOW does this even happen in this day and age anymore? Do you know how LOUD that luggage would have smelled during check in. I don't believe it.

  • xenaD

    Maybe she plans on returning to Netflix...
    That damn sure did not seem like a season finale, much less a series finale!
    One thing Olivia got right tho was that she definitely was the common denominator in every durn thing lol
    I couldn’t stand Olivia Pope for two good whole boring seasons
    The ending was so boring tho that’s it
    Ps... Rowans Speech was so damn good to those white people, how I wish it were Real! He was my fave character of the whole show

  • Trace da Ace

    never watched the show.....heard alot about it....not my cup of tea....hope it ended well...that is all I got.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    People who think they are smarter than the police does things like this. They have probably done this many times before..My ex use to smoke weed. One day I got into his car and it was freakin LOUD! I told him the next morning to roll his windows down so the smell wouldn't get in his clothes before work he said he didn't notice it..

  • xenaD

    I started binge watching on Netflix (out on a work related injury) So I don’t know if I’m considered a “real fan” but Season 1-3 were bomb... then 6 was good and 7 also
    I wouldn’t recommend the binge watch thing tho, u will liv and Fitz will both begin to urk your nerves lol

  • free

    which post?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    That junk was reeedayumdiculous! I was like women straight up think like this frfr...you are trusting someone who is living a lie, lying to his wife..to tell YOU the truth? You bought the lie and mad because a lier..LIED? uMMMWHET? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ea64520a1dfa439535ac9ec7f411001b777d93b7bf43fe21a6ea501bbbd808e8.jpg

  • WutizstillHERE!

    The biggest what the fuk for me was the fact that she was threatening this man..like that was gone make him decide to be with her..I don't understand this logic..be with me or I will destroy you..YEAHOK...

  • FukkFolks2018

    Was private chartered plane. Like I said yesterday if he a criminal...lock him up.

  • free

    i think the wife probably found out and is going to take all his money so he decided to "work it out" and one of the terms was to cut this chick loose. she has no job and he has probably already cut off the spigot. maybe if he gives her some money and gets her a job.... this is to keep her silent not keep up the relationship. give her an NDA like trump.

  • free

    IF she is to be believed, he went WAAAAYYYYY too far and i agree with her--HE should be held accountable for his actions like she is.

  • joel adams

    The first season wa dope af cuh . After det...i quit det show .

  • tunjie

    As usual, Eli Command dominated every scene he had, I think a spin off of his days as Command w B613 would be great. The rest of the scandal storylines just were disorganized, I was hoping someone would shoot fine ass annoying Olivia as she was walking out the white house.

  • Phillybruh

    Olivia Choose herself in the end and Fitz got in line and then she became President.

    Great, never watched on minute of this propaganda.

  • T865!

    Agreed

  • Sid

    Scandal was boring and dull. I just couldn’t get into it.
    Now “How to get away with murder” Anna Mae always come through snatching edges in the courtroom.
    This is one show I will hate to see end.

  • NeverSurprised

    I've never watched a full episode. I tried, but Kerry Washington's habit of turning those lips up every time she spoke was hella annoying. It looked like she was trying to smell her top lip. I couldn't take it, so I was out.

  • free

    she started doing it more and more as the seasons went by. i barely got through her being on HTGAWM.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That show drives me insane with those damn flash backs and waiting tell damn near the last episode to find out who killed who. I stopped watching like 2 seasons ago. still have watched the finale of Scandal yet, not sure if I want too since it has such bad reviews.

  • Ridingfinest

    I agree with Tamar Tattles 100 % I'm disappointed in how Scandal ended!!

  • Patricia

    im glad to know im not alone. i can never get through a show distracted by her facial expressions

  • zero options

    Same here

  • Hugga Bunch

    And Tony could get it every day of the week lol love his walk and his voice.

  • Hugga Bunch

    When Usher said let it burn, we didn't know he really meant that ish. Hide yo' genitals for real lol

  • Hugga Bunch

    Jake should've snapped and killed Cyrus- no point at all for you know who being the one to go.

  • Smokey’s Mom

    Oh yes!!!!

  • kekeb

    Question: are you black? I'm just curious

  • kekeb

    I stopped watching it several seasons back as well. Once you miss ONE epidsode, you're completely lost!! But, I love Shonda and what she has done for the culture! I support blacks especially blacks in Hollywood. I hope her other shows continue to do well.

  • dontgetblocked

    I forced myself to binge watch one year but I fell off when the new season started.

  • Reenaface

    All I know is, they didn't have to do my man David like that. I used to like Cyrus but he turned into such a ?? I felt so bad for Abby. Mellie never made a good POTUS, someone was always rescuing her from one dilemma to the next. What would be really dope was to fix Marcus up with Makaila from HTGAW I was feeling their chemistry when they hooked up. I didn't like his chemistry with Mellie and always felt Mellie hooked up with Marcus to compete with Fitz's off/on relationship with Olivia.

  • TrollingStoned

    I had stopped watching for a season or two but I did tune into the finale. Wasn’t impressed. It seemed rushed and forced maybe she has something up her sleeve like a Netflix original movie or something ??????????????? Idk I’m just glad I didn’t watch the show faithfully to be let down like that lol

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    The last paragraph the blogger wrote sums it up nicely. Shonda copped-out by not answering any of the main questions that were set up through all the seasons. And showing the pic at the end?! How are you going to be mysterious or let the audience decide on a show that is ENDING?! That would have been a nice season finale cliffhanger but not an ending

  • Kita Williams

    LMFAO why she mad? Law & Order: SVU been around for 20 seasons and we STILL never got to see Olivia and Stabler hook up. And they were partners for 13yrs at that point before he left the show. Get over it LOL not all stories have the ending we want
