‘Scandal’ Season 4 Finale: Everything ‘Explodes’ — Will Someone Die?

Thu, May 7, 2015 4:16pm EDT by Avery Thompson 5 Comments

The season 4 finale of ‘Scandal’ isn’t until May 14, but spoilers are already running rampant. The cast has revealed insane details about the finale, and they’ve been dropping words like ‘crazy’ and ‘everything explodes.’ Could the finale bring the demise of a fan favorite character?!

Scandal is known for its crazy, twist-filled finales, but I have a feeling the season four finale is going to be completely bonkers. The cast dished major spoilers at the Directors Guild of America panel on May 1. When speaking about the finale, star Kerry Washington said, “Where do we go from here? Are you for real?” After Derek Shepherd’s shocking death on fellow TGIT show Grey’s Anatomy, I’m on edge about all of my favorite Scandal characters.

The clever Scandal cast didn’t give too much away, but it’s safe to say Gladiators everywhere are running scared after hearing what they did have to say.

“This finale episode, I mean, I just… I turned to Shonda [Rhimes]. I was like, ‘Where do we go from here? Are you for real? Now what?’ It’s crazy,” Kerry said at the event, according to our sister site Variety.

If you thought Kerry was overexaggerating, think again. “The structure of everything explodes,” Darby Stanchfield told Variety. When asked if she meant an actual explosion, she said, “Uhhh… maybe.”

‘Scandal’ Season 4 Finale: Will It Be Like ‘Grey’s Anatomy’?

As we all know, Shonda Rhimes holds the key to all of our TGIT hopes and dreams. She shocked us all with Derek Shepherd’s shocking demise on Grey’s Anatomy this season, so is she ready to drop a startling death on us Gladiators?

“Shonda has shown no mercy,” Bellamy Young said. Well, I’m officially scared. It’s been awhile since the show had a shocking death (RIP Harrison and James), and the drama with Rowan and Jake’s near-death experience has me feeling like something really bad is about to happen.

HollywoodLifers, what are you theories for the season 4 finale? Let me know!
