Election Day madness is upon us tonight on the season finale of ABC's Scandal. Last episode, Cyrus (Jeff Perry) learned Sally Langston (Kate Burton), Leo (Paul Adelstein) and Andrew (Jon Tenney), are all at a funeral. Did I forget to mention a ticking bomb is the guest of honor, courtesy of Maya (Khandi Alexander)? 

What exactly can "Gladiators" expect when the bomb goes off? Olivia Pope herself, Kerry Washington, dished to The Hollywood Reporter. Here's an excerpt:

THR: Sally, Andrew, Leo and more are all at the senator's funeral. How deadly can we expect the explosion to be and how will it impact the election?

Washington: The explosion has huge impact on the election, but I can't say more than that. It's a definite game-changer.




Does Olivia think Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) can get a second term in the Oval Office? Washington gave her theories.

THR: Can Fitz win an election on his own or is this going to be Defiance all over again to put him over the top? Cyrus already seems to be setting it up that Fitz might literally be the only one to survive election day?

Washington: I don't think anybody wins an election on their own. That's part of what the show is about. We see the machine behind how these things happen. I don't think anybody is every winning an election on their own -- either in real life or on our show. You get to see how the machine, including Fitz himself, responds to circumstances around him.


The Season 3 finale of Scandal airs tonight at 10 EST on ABC.
