Shonda Rhimesjust dropped somemajorbombshells aboutScandalat the Paley Center for Media's 33rd Annual PaleyFest.The biggest?Perhaps that Rhimes and co-producerBetsy Beersknows when and where the show will end.("We've talked about these things," is all Rhimes would elaborate.) But that's notallwe learned.Here's everything that happened:
哈克的家庭戏剧: The audience previewed Thursday night's episode,in which Huck must deal with the emotional fallout of not being in his son's life."I don't know if he can go [without seeing his family]," saidGuillermo Diaz."I think in a way,Huck has grown and is trying to become a better man,but who knows?" Added Rhimes: "I think everybody is evolving this season.There's been a lot of darkness of Huck,but he's trying to be a better person."
The Moral Compass:Kerry Washingtonasked her cast mates which character on the show has their priorities straight,andCornelius Smith,Jr.(who plays Marcus) immediately raised his hand with an enthusiastic,"I do!" Smith,who we spoke with justa few weeks ago,said "Marcus is fighting to set the bar,and yet [others] are trying to remove it in a way."
Why Quinn Isn't Fond of Marcus: "I think she was the newbie for a while," saidKatie Lowesof Quinn."She sees a lot in him as the moral compass that she was in season one and two.She brought them coffees and worked her way up the ladder,and Marcus has gotten in there a little bit quicker than it took Quinn.She's making it a little bit tough for him."
Next Week's Episode Is Major：观众中的粉丝为本周四的这一集疯狂了，but Kerry Washington promised that next week's is even more insane."If you think the debates in the real world are fun,then..." is all Washington would tease.说到辩论，Rhimes said that she often had to eliminate dialogue she already wrote for fictional debates "because it already happened in real life."
Director Debate:Scott Foleyv.Tony Goldwyn: Now that Foley and Goldwyn have both directed episodes ofScandal,Washington admitted that she's "so horrible when Tony directs.My mother was even like,'Why are you acting that way?!" Added Goldwyn: "When I give her direction or my thoughts on something,she's like,'Yeah,right!" Washington was quick to add that she'll do just about anything to make fun of Goldwyn.
Scott Foley,Meet Hillary Clinton: When the Democratic Presidential nominee paid a visit to the set ofScandallast month,Foley (who was directing that week's episode) had no idea."It was the last shot of the night,and I had no idea she was going to show up," he said of theformer First Ladyand Secretary of State."Three highway patrol men came through and then nine secret service agents and then I saw Huma [Abedin,Clinton's aide],and I was like,'I know her!' Then I saw Hillary in this green [outfit].I [didn't] know what to do.She sat behind me,and I was like,'Action!' all while [freaking out]."
Switch-Up Day:Good Morning America's Lara Spencer (who moderated the event) asked the cast if there's a fellowScandal他们只想玩一天的角色。Guillermo Diaz said former VP Sally Langston,whileJoe Mortonjoked that he'd like to play David Rosen "because I have no love interest!" Katie Lowes and Scott Foley both mentioned Jeff Perry's Cyrus,while Kerry Washington said that even though her favorite character on the show right now is VP Susan Ross,"I feel like I might want to be George Newbern's Charlie for one episode."Bellamy Youngmentioned Mama Pope,while Tony Goldwyn gave his vote to Mellie Grant.Darby Stanchfieldsaid "I'd like to be Papa Pope for a day," to which Goldwyn joked that her character is "headed in that direction."Portia de Rossimentioned that she'd like to get inside Huck's complicated mind.
