Scandal Scales Back Season 3 Episode Order

by at . Comments

When it comes to Kerry Washington's pregnancy, ABC has it handled.

But not in a way that will make many Scandal fans happy.

Olivia, All Alone

Because the show's lead is expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, the network announced this week that Scandal Season 3 will only be comprised of 18 episodes; that's four fewer than the initial order.

That's the bad news.

The good news? Imagine all the sheer craziness and suspense that Shonda Rhimes will now need to cram in to each installment in order to include every storyline development!

On Thursday, Scandal Season 3 Episode 10 will air and mark the show's midseason finale. Watch the official promo here:

Scandal Quotes

Jake: Man, do I love you.
Olivia: I want Vermont with Fitz.
Jake: Oh, okay.
Olivia: I also want the sun with you.
Jake: So...
Olivia: I'm not choosing. I'm not choosing Jake. I'm not choosing Fitz. I'm choosing me. I'm choosing Olivia. And right now, Olivia is dancing. Now, you can dance with me or you can get off my dance floor. I'm fine dancing alone.

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.
