Show creator Shonda Rhimes has, in the past few years, managed to dominate with fan favorite shows on ABC, which mostly show on Thursday nights, such as the long-running “Grey’s Anatomy”, the murder mystery drama “How To Get Away With Murder”, and the Kerry Washington starrer “Scandal,” which will be returning this fall for a fifth season. While fans and viewers alike patiently wait for the show to return in September, it has been teased that Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) team will more or less regroup, and the aftermath of the events that unfolded during the fourth season finale will also be seen. WARNING: This article contains spoilers on the fifth and upcoming season of ABC’s “Scandal”. Read on only to learn more about what will happen next to Olivia Pope and the rest of her team, as well as the fate of Huck Munoz (Guillermo Diaz).
The season four finale of Shonda Rhimes’ “Scandal” left everyone at the edge of their seats as events unfolded in front of the eyes of the fans and viewers.
Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) managed to put away her father for good due to his crimes and embezzlement. Then. she reunited with the President of the United States, President Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III (Tony Goldwyn).
The season finale also left fans wondering about the fate of Huck Munoz (Guillermo Diaz), as the season ended with Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes) pointing a gun at her mentor’s head, after she discovered that he had killed a bus full of jurors on the orders of Olivia’s father, Rowan “Eli” Pope (Joe Morton).
According to a recent interview that TV Fanatic had with Lowes during the recently concluded Television Critics Association press summer tour, Lowes teased that the fifth season will begin right. The fourth season left off and stated that both she and Diaz have been joking around about a new inside joke and hashtag trend amongst the cast- “#GhostHuck.” However, she did not state whether this meant that Huck will be gone for good on the show.
Lowes then went on to say that the season five premiere will be mind-blowing, and that fans of Quinn should expect her character to be back at Olivia Pope and Associates, which hasn’t been quite the same in the previous season. It was especially as Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) had gone on to work for the White House during Olivia’s absence, and due to Harrison Wright’s (Columbus Short) demise.
However, fans and viewers need not fear, as show creator Shonda Rhimes has just informed TV Line that the “Gladiators” will finally be back together in the upcoming season, and will be working as a team once again. This is further emphasized by TV Guide, as Rhimes stated that they will be bringing the show back, especially its characters, to where they were at the beginning of the series.
TV Guide also mentioned that Portia de Rossi, who portrays Elizabeth “Lizzie Bear” North and Cornelius Smith Jr., who portrays Marcus Walker, will both be back as series regulars.
