The network will air 18 episodes instead of 22 of the Shonda Rhimes drama’s third season.
Shonda Rhimes loves to make you identify with Scandal’s characters, and then remind you over and over again of how low they can go.
It will be tough for the midseason finale of “Scandal” to be more shocking this episode. There were huge, genuinely surprising plot twists, the most frightening scene of dental torture since “Marathon Man,” and an uncomfortable sex scene.
