Shonda Rhimes- the creator of the popular series Scandal, recently revealed to Morning Edition that she already has in mind how the show will end. The political drama follows the trials and tribulations of Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), who sets up her own crisis management firm after leaving the White House, where she worked as a press aide. The show has been a hit from the start. It was nominated for several Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this year; including Washington’s nomination for an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series prize. Compared to Rhimes’ other show, Grey’s Anatomy, currently in its tenth season, Scandal may be expiring sooner than we hoped. Rhimes confessed in an interview with NPR that, "It is very political. The political landscape on the outside, in the real world, will change - possibly before Scandal is over. But I feel like there is a finite amount of 'Scandal' to be told. So I know what the end of 'Scandal' will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don't think I'm going to change that ... I know how long I think it will be. But we'll see." Rhimes announced to The Hollywood Reporter that she always had a finale in mind for Grey's Anatomy.           "[W]e've passed the time in which that ending would happen. I had another final scene in mind, and I wrote it into an episode because I thought we were too far past when that could happen," she explained. "I've done that five times with this show. This show does not seem to end. I stopped trying to think about what the last moment of the show is going to be because we reinvent it at the beginning of every season, and it's a different show each season." Catch Scandal on ABC at 10pm on Thursday.
