TGIT (THANK GOD IT’S THURSDAY) — ABC and Shonda Rhimes just turned the entertainment world on its head. Anticipation is crazy after the Scandal/How to Get Away with Murder crossover episode.
“Shonda Rhimes is God.” — The Vulture
The source says that the special episode will air later this season. Unfortunately, this is Scandal‘s seventh and FINAL season.
It’s still How to Get Away With Murder‘s fourth season; however, there hasn’t been talk of show cancellation just yet.

Nevertheless, both Kerry Washington and Viola Davis posted photos about the episode crossover from the sets of each show.
Via Instagram, Washington hit Davis with a few questions: “Hey, Ms. Viola Davis. Check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?”
However, Viola fired right back with her own photo upload. “Hey, Kerry Washington. Guess where I am?!”

According to Viola’s script, she’s going to talk with Olivia — both of them pretty much expressing how they’re cut from the same cloth. Then…”the reveal.”

The Vulture reports as follows.
“This Scandal–HTGAWM joint episode will be the first crossover of the Shondaland trio currently on ABC. Grab your gauntlet of wine and let’s guzzle together.”
Honestly, this has been quite the long-time coming. Their characters have several, similar traits. So, it’s no wonder Shonda Rhimes would think to bring them together eventually.
All in all, we’d love to know your thoughts about this upcoming act of entertainment glory. If you have any comments, feel free to share them via our Facebook page.
