'Scandal': Who is the mole? A character analysis

[SPOILER ALERT: If you care about spoilers, don’t read if you’re not caught up with Scandal. We’re going as far as last week’s “A Woman Scorned.” Deal? Deal.]

It’s been almost three months since we saw David Rosen wake up next to a butchered blonde and we realized that something (else) was amiss in the Scandalverse. These kids can’t catch a break, can they? Since that moment and the President’s sabotaged hostage rescue attempt, the pieces of the White House Mole problem have been unravelling slowly, with promising leads, frustrating closed doors, and the death of an innocent man.

Scandal isn’t concerned with answering every question, but at least we know for sure that in tonight’s episode of ABC’s soapy, impossible-to-resist melodrama, we will find out who that pesky mole actually is. Let’s take a look at some of our lead suspects and make wild speculations about motives.


'Scandal' debate: How does your 'shipper heart feel about Olivia/Fitz?

Spoiler Alert: Do not read this if you have not watched Thursday’s episode of Scandal, ”A Woman Scorned.”

In a perfect world Olivia and Fitz would end up together. I understand this and I will not fight you ‘shippers. I am one of you, but I’m growing concerned about where this relationship is headed. Although their love theme makes my heart flutter, I did not squee with excitement as the clock ran down on Mellie’s ultimatum and Olivia and Fitz stopped heavy-breathing into the phone and started heavy-breathing together in real life. So I’m going to talk through the mixed emotions I have about this whole development below and hopefully, dear PopWatchers, you can help me work through them: READ FULL STORY

This week's cover: Crazy in love with 'Scandal'


Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and her astute band of associates specialize in solving problems — from the outrageous and illicit to the shocking and salacious. But we — and millions of weekly viewers — find ourselves with one problem that even they can’t fix: We’re addicted to Scandal. This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly goes behind the scenes of television’s sexiest drama for a journey through its rise to a show that has taken over our TVs — and Twitter feeds — thanks in part to the forbidden romance between Pope and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn). “I feel like The West Wing brought us Washington as we’d all want it to be,” explains Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes. “And this show brings us Washington as we hope it would never be.”

And that, of course, is what makes ABC’s Scandal such a fun, live-tweet-every-oh-my-God–moment viewing experience. Every Thursday between 10 and 11 p.m., hordes of fans gather online to do just that: The show has averaged more than 220,000 tweets per episode since January, according to SocialGuide; some of these fans include Oprah Winfrey, Lena Dunham, and Mary J. Blige. “Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!'” Washington says. “I feel like it happens at least once a week — that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show.”
