What we learned when Shonda Rhimes went 'Behind the Scandalabra' -- VIDEO

Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes doesn’t want her political drama to be something you can watch while folding the laundry — she wants it to have your full attention. And Thursday’s surprise-packed season finale ensured that it would.

After the episode aired, Jimmy Kimmel turned Live! into Behind the Scandalabra – a special featuring Rhimes, who discussed the finale and gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show. Among the highlights: a blooper reel that reveals Bellamy Young’s go-to word when she messes up a line is “fart,” and that Josh Malina was once pied by a crew member while filming a scene.

'Scandal': How we picked our Top 10 Twists, plus 7 honorable mentions

Scandal ends only its third season on Thursday night, and yet narrowing down the show’s many twists and turns into a top 10 list was an effort in restraint.

Take season 3’s “YOLO,” for instance: In a single hour, Huck tortures his onetime apprentice Quinn, Olivia discovers her mom is a terrorist, and the vice president murders her husband. That’s one episode. So we assembled EW’s most committed Gladiators to hash out our twisty top 10, and we think Olivia Pope would be proud of how we handled things. I brought the group a list of more than 20 of the show’s most shocking twists that we had to whittle down to an airtight top 10.

While some were simple to rule out (Do we really care that Gov. Reston murdered his wife’s lover? And is it technically a twist that Fitz has a secret house in Vermont for Olivia?), others were hard to see go. Which brings us to our honorable mentions. Below, every Scandal superfan who contributed to the list shares her favorite moment that just missed the cut: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal' cast member Jeff Perry admits watching 'The Wire' is on his to-do list -- VIDEO

Unscientific figures (via my Twitter feed) confirm that 30 percent of Scandal fans became addicted to the show after binge-watching the first season. But which Scandal cast member has a little binge-watching of his own to do? Jeff Perry, who admitted to EW that The Wire remains on his to-do list, more than six years after it signed off the air!

This confession and more were made when Perry, who plays the formidable Cyrus Beene on the ABC drama, stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal': We predict what's going to happen tonight

Gladiators, assemble.

The season finale of Scandal airs tonight, and naturally, we can expect plenty of crazy moments. We know the bomb goes off (Probably?) — but who’s inside the church, or what happens post-explosion is anyone’s guess. Will there be crazy hookups? Will we see another sighting of Fitz’s kids? Will we get any weird beyond-the-grave messages from dearly departed James? Below, check out some of our best guesses about what will go down tonight, and then add your own. READ FULL STORY

Need a 'Scandal' season finale (wine) drinking game? It's handled!

Nobody does a season finale quite like Shonda Rhimes, and because of that, nobody needs a finale drinking game more than Scandal fans. And considering Thursday night’s finale quite literally features a bomb, that glass of wine is probably looking better than ever (if you’re of age, of course).

So in honor of Olivia Pope’s love of red wine, we’ve made this a wine-specific drinking game. We have no idea what to expect heading into tonight, but at least we can give you this much. Follow the rules below to play along, and as always, please drink responsibly: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'Mad Men' and 'Orphan Black' are back, 'Scandal' signs off, more

Secret identities and a whole lot of scandal — that about sums up television’s big premieres and finales this week. From whatever (ahem, or whomever) Don Draper/Dick Whitman is doing on Mad Men, to the deepening mystery behind the origin of the clones on Orphan Black, and however the heck Olivia is getting out of her latest jam on Scandal, there’s plenty of must-watch-live TV this week. But there are lots of reasons to get off the couch, too. Here are our picks over the next seven days:

Chupacabra saves Guillermo in Kimmel's last 'Scandal' spoof -- VIDEO

Thought Scandal couldn’t get any crazier? Well, Jimmy Kimmel aired the final segment of his telenovela Scandal spoof on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! – complete with a chupacabra appearance.

In this dramatic finale, Kimmel interrupts a conversation between Kerry Washington and Guillermo Rodriguez to point a gun at Rodriguez’s head — only for a chupacabra to run up behind the unsuspecting Kimmel and attack him. Afterwards, Washington and Rodriguez reflect on how weird the whole chupacabra thing was. As it turns out, it wasn’t actually a chupacabra — because apparently, even Escandalo has its limits.

Every 'Scandal' reference made on 'Trophy Wife'

On Tuesday night’s Trophy Wife, Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) found herself channeling Olivia Pope in order to help Kate (Malin Ackerman) deal with a PTA problem.

EW had a sneak peek of the episode earlier this week, but even we couldn’t have predicted all the Scandal goodness peppered throughout the half-hour. So Wednesday morning, we decided to do a breakdown of every single reference.

It’s pretty safe to say the show’s homage to Olivia Pope and Associates was handled perfectly. READ FULL STORY
