The 'Scandal' Cast Talks OMG Moments, What's Next, and the Little Blue Bird
Still reeling from the "Scandal" finale last Thursday? You're not alone. Yahoo! TV celebrated with Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, and the entire cast on finale night at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and while the gladiators couldn't reveal a thing about what's coming in Season 3 (trust us ... we tried to pry it out of them), they had a whole lot of fun looking back at the season that was.
Check out the cast dishing on their favorite moments, what they hope lies ahead, and why "Scandal" would not be here today if it weren't for you all.
Favorite OMG Moments From Season 2
"I think the scene in Olivia's [Kerry Washington] apartment on the couch when I told her I choose her was my favorite," Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant, told us. "I was also directing that episode, so it was a challenge. I loved the whole time-lapse — that was really great."
"The giant monologue that Shonda [Rhimes] wrote saying, 'You aren't their father anymore,'" Bellamy Young — who plays first lady Mellie Grant — said, referring to the episode "The Snake in the Garden." "To be able to be that complex — angry, sad, to love him, to hate him, to be jealous of him but want to take care of him — it was a dream as an actor."
"My favorite episode was '752,'" Guillermo Diaz (Huck) said, while actress Darby Stanchfield (Abby Whelan) agreed. "'752' was a really special episode. I know it was really dark and there wasn't a lot of humor in it, but it was a special one to shoot for all of us. We bonded in a new way because it was so hard to do," she said.
"I really love the scene from the finale," Katie Lowes (Quinn Perkins) told us. Spoiler Alert if you haven't watched yet ... it's the scene where Quinn kills Billy Chambers! "I'm so afraid right now, I don't know if Twitter is going to love Quinn or hate Quinn. If they hate Quinn and I have to spend the summer dealing with mean tweets, I don't know what I'll do."
