Shocking is one way to describe the finale of ‘Scandal’ on April 17 — but “explosive” is more accurate. Fans tweeted throughout the show about all the crazy moments of the show, but mostly about the news that one of our favorite characters left town.
It’s no surprise that the season three finale of Scandal was well, scandalous to say the least. However with the sudden change in power at the White House and at Olivia Pope & Association, fans were absolutely blown away by who decided to walk away from it all. [Warning: Spoilers ahead!]
‘Scandal Finale’: Olivia Quits & Fans Freak Out
While we’re not sure she’ll stand by her decision (we saw that I’m-not-so-sure look in her eyes in the final moments of the episode) or that Jake (Scott Foley) will stand in the sun by her for long, one thing we do know — fans were completely blown away!
Read the reactions below, and then let us know — were you shocked that Olivia and Jake left together?
