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.

Scandal Quotes

Abby: What happens to you happens to me. I'm good at my job, Leo. I am a lion up there. I own that room. I work for it. I give a strong briefing. And they write about that. They cover the news and there are articles about how well I do at my job. But they also write about me. If I wear lipstick, I'm dolled up. If I don't, I've let myself go. They wonder if I'm trying to bring dresses back and they don't like it when I repeat outfits even though I'm on a government salary. They discuss my hair color. There are anonymous blogs that say I'm too skinny. They have a running joke that I'm on a hunger strike until I'm liberated by the Democrats!
Leo: Abby--
Abby: They also write about you. Every article that comes out about me has your name somewhere in it because apparently there's this rule that in order to write about me they also have to report to the world that there's a man who wants me. My work, my accomplishments, my awards, I stand at the most powerful podium in the world, but a story about me ain't a story unless they report on the fact that I am the girlfriend of 'D.C. fixer Leo Bergen' like it validates me, gives me an identity, a definition. They can't fathom the concept that my life doesn't revolve around you. My life doesn't revolve anywhere near you. It's horrifying. 'Property of Leo Bergen.' Tell me, Leo, when they write about you do they report on your clothes? Do they write about your thighs? There is a difference. There is. So what happens to you happens to me, which is why I'm writing a letter of resignation. Are we done?

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.
