Scandal Season 4 Spoilers: A Total Reboot of the Show?
After Season 3's April 17 explosive finale left everything broken in shreds and pieces, fans now expect nothing less than a fresh restart for Scandal come Season 4. It is as Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitz, earlier told TheWrap before that highly charged last episode aired, "Not only does everything come to a head as one might expect in a finale, but (show creator) Shonda Rhymes just goes beyond what any of us ever expected. It's very shocking what goes down and very moving. And, again sort of reorders the 'Scandal' universe."
What went down that would necessitate a reordering of the 'Scandal' universe? Well, for starters, Olivia (Kerry Washington) has flown the coop following her "I'm the scandal!" epiphany, taking along Jake (Scott Foley) to destinations unknown. Her ruthless father Rowan (Joe Morton) has orchestrated the killing of the President's son Jerry (Dylan Minnette) as part of a scheme to get his old job back as head of black ops B613. Her equally ruthless terrorist mother Maya (Khandi Alexander) has been neutralized and locked up inside a hole in the floor of B613. Her lover Fitz, who got reelected as POTUS, has apparently decided to stay put with his wife Mellie (Bellamy Young) following the death of their son and after learning that she was raped by his own father. David (Joshua Malina) has received Jake's shipment of classified B613 files with a "Get the bad guys" note.
And of course we already know that Harrison (Columbus Short), whom we left in Season 3 staring at Tom's (Brian Letscher) gun, won't be back next season. Short was fired from the show after a number of very public meltdowns.
Scandal Season 4 will begin filming by end of July and will back to your TV screens by fall at its new 9:00 PM time slot every Thursdays.
