Attention Gladiator Nation! We guess we knew something was up when we saw a beautiful new face on Scandal 309 that made Harrison go all doe-eyed and weak-kneed. Well, the beautiful newcomer is Kelly McCreary, who has been cast as Clare Tucker, Harrison‘s former colleague and love interest. Not much is know about Clare yet. All we do know is that she can pull major strings to get identities created quickly; and that she knows Harrison‘s arch-nemesis, Adnan Salif. Did the two used to work together for Salif?
We are going to be cautious with Clare. She could be another bat out of hell just like Mama Pope. But we are relieved that finally, Harrison has/had a love interest – and a drop dead gorgeous one at that! If all is well, and Clare is not the devil’s handmaiden, we’re all aboard on the new ship, “Clarrison.“

Attention Gladiator Nation! Scandal‘s Yara Shahidi, who plays the young “Olivia Pope” in episodes 306 and 309, shared some pictures of her with the “Pope Family” via her Twitter account @RealYaraShahidi: Papa Pope (Joe Morton), Mama Pope (Khandi Alexander) and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). Yara is a true professional and eager to learn and better her craft. Kudos to her acknowledging the greatness of the actors she works with. We hope to see much more of Yara in the future. Enjoy!

Attention Gladiator Nation! We have just received word that Scandal season 3 will be reduced from 22 to 18 episodes, presumably because of Kerry Washington‘s pregnancy. Sources say that Kerry is due to give birth in the Spring, around the same time the cast and crew would be filming episodes 19 through 22. This is all good! We are very happy for Kerry and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, on the most joyous occasion of the upcoming birth of their first child. The new parents will need quality time with their little one. We hope and pray that all will go well. This is the best reason to forego four episodes of Scandal. Family comes first.
This, however, will not stop us from poking fun at the father-to-be, Nnamdi. Don’t worry, it’s all in love. He is good people. But we just cannot resist saying that Scandal got “Nnamdi’d.“
Scandal‘s season 3 winter finale airs on December 12, 2013. The remaining eight episodes for the season will begin airing in the Spring on February 27, 2014. We are certain the show will be renewed for a fourth season, due to the show’s high ratings and huge fan base.
Once again, our neighbors to the north in Canada get a better Scandal promo. We wish their US counterparts would be as generous. Looks like Olivia is gonna go nuclear on Mama Pope and Quinn; Sally will ask Cyrus to help clean up her murderous mess; and Papa Pope makes a deal with Quinn, but he is later trapped by Secret Service agents.

Scandal 309 – “YOLO,” brought out some of the worst reactions that we have ever had to an episode. We just could not believe nor accept that Olivia‘s mother, Maya Lewis, a/k/a “Marie Wallace” a/k/a “Mama Pope” was the real monster. We had wanted Mama Pope to be good, to be a source of comfort and guidance for her messed up daughter. After Scandal 309, however, Mama Pope would be the last person Olivia needs in her life now. Mama Pope gave her daughter, Olivia, a very embarrassing lesson in the dark art of manipulation: She used her daughter to skip the country, and made Olivia and her team look like a pack of fools. They got “Mama Pope’d,” sir.

Attention Gladiator Nation! Though the Scandal 310 promo was quick, we could not help but notice that Quinn and Charlie are the ones hauling Daniel Douglas Langston‘s body out of the Langston home, after Sally ”offed” him for cheating on her. Well, Sally is now forever beholden to B-613 and Cyrus for helping clean up her mess. This will definitely keep her from running as an independent against Fitz. Looks like Cyrus‘ diabolical plan worked after all. We still think Quinn must die though…
Attention Gladiator Nation! The following is the promo for Scandal 310 – “A Door Marked Exit.” We can see that all hell has broken loose. There is a brief clip of Fitz interrogating Rowan. We believe Rowan is about to lose his job as Command of B-613. He will might live, but not as the powerful man he was before. At least he got away from Charlie and Quinn, our new “Tweedle Dumb” and Tweedle Dumber,” respectively. And Huck has another crack at Quinn., whom we feel needs to go. She is disloyal and can never again be trusted. After all that Olivia did to help Quinn, only to have this help repaid with betrayal, Quinn must die.
