“SCANDAL” SEASON 7 FINALE EPISODE 18 OFFICIAL PLOT SYNOPSIS: The episode marks the culmination of Olivia, Mellie, Fitz and the Gladiators’ journey as we know it. With the existence of B613 exposed to the world, the Gladiators make the ultimate sacrifice in order to take down Cyrus and Jake – but how far will they go to get justice? For those who missed last week’s episode, when under oath, Olivia Pope outed B613 and Jake, so that she could save Mellie and “stand in the sun,” as she told Jake.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Show creator Shonda Rhimes recently told the Hollywood Reporter that she believes Scandal has made a true impact on women of color in television, explaining that, “Now it feels very normal and obvious that women of color can lead shows, so hopefully that is something that Scandal has done. Hopefully we’ve created a world in which we’ve stopped seeing these characters on television and it’s a magical anomaly that they’re there and there’s an otherness to them … Hopefully we’ve made a dent in that.”
