“Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes and the cast stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for a “Behind the Scandalabra” special Thursday (April 17), where they dished the dirt on their hit show, which saw some major twists and turns come to Olivia Pope and her associates in the Season 3 finale. Spoiler alert if you haven’t watched the episode yet.
One of Kimmel’s big questions is whether or not Rhimes just killed off Harrison (Columbus Short), whose fate at the hands of B613 was left up in the air in the final frames. Rhimes says she cannot confirm or deny whether Harrison is dead, but she does say, “I think it’s always really hard to kill off somebody who’s been on the show a long time and you’ve really gotten to know.”
Just for the record, we don’t think Harrison is dead. We think he’s going to be the latest agent of B613.
The rest of the special featured more episodes of “Escandalo,” the telenovela version of “Scandal” that “JKL” does periodically, and a really fun blooper reel. But the actual details about Season 4 were pretty scarce, which we expected. The “Scandal” writers gotta keep the craziness under wraps, right?
“Scandal” returns in the fall on ABC.
