Before the fall season of TV kicks off, we need to reflect on the jaw-dropping moments that happened last season. From shocking deaths to an epic reunion, HollywoodLife.com has rounded up the 15 top moments of last season you have to remember!
Honestly, we’re still trying to recover from last season’s shocking moments. Seriously, how can we ever get over Derek Shepherd’s death or Emma becoming the Dark One? Before fall TV gets started and we have another set of shocking moments to freak out over, let’s take a look back at 15 of the most jaw-dropping, life-changing moments of last season.
Season 5 of ‘Scandal’ is going to be full of ‘twisty, crazy goodness,’ according to the first trailer released by ABC on Sept. 10. Not only are Olivia and Fitz finally have hot naked fun again, but Mellie gets served divorce papers, POTUS is ‘hiding’ something, and Huck is alive! Watch it here.
We’re so ready to get “handled” on Thursday, September 24, when Scandal Season 5 premieres on ABC. The network just released the “crazy” first trailer for the new season and it’s full of all kinds of #Olitz goodness.
Talk about girl power! The new cover of ‘Entertainment Weekly’ features Shonda Rhimes, the head of TGIT, along with her leading ladies — Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, and Viola Davis . . . and it’s stunning.
If anyone knows how to get what they want done and make good TV, it’s these four women! Shonda Rhimes, the powerhouse behind ABC’s TGIT, surrounded herself with the women of the shows that we’re obsessing over: Ellen Pompeo (Meredith in Grey’s Anatomy), Kerry Washington (Olivia Pope in Scandal) and the latest edition, Viola Davis (Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder).
This guy seems to sniff trouble out. Columbus Short was arrested once again on August 18, this time as a result of a missed court appearance. Oddly, he was apprehended at a nightclub while celebrating the release of his album. Okay.
Columbus Short, who played Harrison Wright for three seasons on Scandal, was arrested on a bench warrant on Aug. 18, while he was inside a Los Angeles nightclub. The 32-year-old had neglected to show up for a recent court date involving a terrifying altercation with his estranged wife, Tanee McCall-Short, from back in April of 2014, in which she had obtained a restraining order against Columbus after he had allegedly threatened to kill both she and himself.
Never count Mellie out! ‘Scandal’ star Bellamy Young recently stopped by the HollywoodLife podcast to chat, and she let it be known that Mellie is prepared to fight!
During that insane season four finale of Scandal, Mellie (Bellamy Young) was put through the emotional ringer with high highs and low lows. After winning her senatorial race, her victory could barely last a second before Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) threw her out of the White House once he found out about she and Andrew (Jon Tenney). However, when the hit series returns to ABC on Sept. 24, she isn’t going to take that kind of treatment lying down. Bellamy dished to us on the HollywoodLife podcast about what she expects to see from Mellie in the new season, as well as her overall hopes for the tough lady.
After FIFA officials were arrested for suspicion of corruption in ‘the World Cup of fraud,’ the soccer organization’s president, Sepp Blatter, is stepping down from his position after 40 years. Wow!
So long, Sepp Blatter, 79! After the U.S. Justice Department, FBI and IRS partnered up to confirm that FIFA, the organization responsible for choosing where the World Cup is held every four years, has a super shady way of picking their locations, FIFA members were arrested for charges ranging from corruption to racketeering. Sepp somehow steered clear of trouble, but before he ends up behind bars himself, the sportsman has decided to throw in the towel. He released a lengthy statement on June 2, explaining his departure — see what he had to say!

Was I the only one running around my living room after the final moments of the ‘Scandal’ season finale aired? Olivia finally made her choice between Fitz and Jake, and I’m so glad that Olivia’s actually happy for once after all the blood, sweat and tears.
Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) decided between the two loves of her life — Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Jake (Scott Foley) — in the incredible Scandal season finale, and I’m overjoyed by her choice. Her decision is sure to divide Olitz and Olake shippers across the globe, but can we just be happy that Olivia’s happy? Here’s why I think Olivia made the right decision, not just for herself, but for the show as a whole.
The season 4 finale of ‘Scandal’ was riveting from beginning to end. The fates of many characters were left unknown, and Olivia finally made her choice between Jake and Fitz once and for all.
Raise your hand if you’re still catching your breath from the Scandal season finale? Everyone? OK, cool. On the May 14 finale, Olivia (Kerry Washington) and the Gladiators took one last chance at taking down Command, someone major got fired, Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) had an intense showdown and Olivia decided who she wanted to be with forever. Was it Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn)?
The season finale of ‘Scandal’ airs tonight, May 14, and Olivia and Fitz share another one of their heartbreaking phone calls. Click to WATCH a preview of the finale!
No one is emotionally ready for Scandal’s season four finale. As always, Shonda Rhimes is going to leave us speechless. In a new sneak peek of the May 14 closer, Olivia (Kerry Washington) calls Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to tell him “goodbye.” It’s another one of Olitz’s emotional phone calls that will likely leave tears in your eyes. Hey, Olivia, where are you going?!
Wait just one minute. Is that Olivia Pope behind bars? So much goes down in the 30-second promo of the ‘Scandal’ season 4 finale, and we are left with so many questions. Click to WATCH!
Gladiators, who else needs a minute to process that promo of the Scandal season 4 finale? We have seven days to get it together before the show drops twist after twist on us. In the promo, Olivia (Kerry Washington) vows to bring down her father (Joe Morton) at all costs, and her determination may put her in a jail cell. Check out the preview, and decide for yourself!
The penultimate episode of ‘Scandal’ season 4 was downright crazy. A major component of Operation Foxtail was revealed, and Rowan saved one of his biggest shockers for the May 7 episode.
It’s down to the final two episodes of the season for Scandal, and the tension is rising. The season 4 finale is going to be crazy just like every other year, and the May 7 episode set it up quite nicely. Mellie (Bellamy Young) made her final bid for senate, Huckleberry Quinn (Guillermo Diaz & Katie Lowes) interrogated the mess out of Russell (Brian White), Jake (Scott Foley) and Russell actually bonded and details about Operation Foxtail were revealed!
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.
After last week’s shocking episode, we all wondered whether there was any hope for Jake. Well, the April 23 episode of ‘Scandal’ gave us that answer. Prepare yourselves, Gladiators.
With only two episodes left until the season four finale, Scandal is building up the drama to a dangerous level. On the April 23 episode, we truly learned Jake’s (Scott Foley) fate after that brutal stabbing, Mellie’s (Bellamy Young) campaign for senate began and Olivia (Kerry Washington) made a shocking decision about her father and B613.
If [SPOILER] is actually dead and not just stealthily faking death, then I’m going to be L-I-V-I-D. For a character of [SPOILER]’s caliber, that final, bloody scene was NOT the way we should have to say goodbye.
I’m still trying to process those final moments of Scandal’s April 16 episode. Is [SPOILER] actually dead?! If so, I’m going to be holding a grudge over Shonda Rhimes, 45, for quite some time. [SPOILER] was a HUGE character on Scandal, and if that was [SPOILER]’s final scene, then it was a disservice to one of the show’s most beloved characters.
