Scandal Series-Finale Recap: A Gladiator Good-bye

A frantic and satisfying ending to the Scandal saga.

  • S.07
  • Ep.11
  • 'Army of One '

It’s difficult to think of another television show that’s been subsumed to this degree by an unworkable plot element. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.10
  • 'The Decision'

Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn have screen chemistry so phenomenal, Shonda Rhimes tilted the entire show in their direction. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.09
  • 'Dead in the Water'

Scandal takes its characters to extreme places, then escorts them back into the real world. 

  • S.05
  • Ep.07
  • 'Even the Devil Deserves a Second Chance'

Yes, Bill, this episode is about your disgusting self. 

  • S.05
  • Ep.04
  • 'Dog-Whistle Politics'

Not only was this one-hour class amazing, this might have been the best one of the best episodes of Scandal in a really long time. 

  • S.03
  • Ep.16
  • 'The Fluffer'

This episode was neither the bomb nor revealed much about who's on the receiving end of the bomb. 

  • S.03
  • Ep.10
  • 'A Door Marked Exit'

In true Scandal style, the big moments came quick in the last two minutes of the mid-season finale. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.14
  • 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot'

This week was heavy on cringe-inducing Oval Office conversations and watching Fitz spin into an alcoholic spiral. 

Thursdays, 10 p.m.
