If you're looking for shocking moments, then Scandal is the show for you. Olivia Pope and her Gladiators do whatever it takes to get results for their clients. 

But that's only the beginning...

While Olivia and Fitz can't seem to decide whether they want to save his Presidency, run away to a log cabin in Vermont or just have sex on his desk, the rest of D.C. continues to spiral out of control. 

The first half of Scandal Season 3 rocked us with the truth behind Olivia's twisted parents, baby Huck's (aka Quinn's) decent into a much darker world, Mellie's horrifying relations with her in-laws and just how deep James was willing to go to get his interview.

Adultery, murder, rape, torture, more adultery and more murder. Take a look at our 12 Most Scandalous Moments from this season of Scandal.

"Before Fitz even ran for Governor, Big Jerry got drunk and raped Mellie. She kept it quiet and used it to control the arrogant, bully. Why? Because she loved Fitz and believed in their future and she knew the truth would ruin him." Are we watching the same show? Mellie kept quiet to blackmail Big Jerry into supporting her dream of Fitz being governor and President and then her running for office. It was all for Mellie's political gain since Fitz wanted to cut ties with Big Jerry who had the political ties. If she truly loved her husband she would have shunned anything to do with Big Jerry and returned home after the rape. Mellie is all about political power.

Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
