Spoiler Alert: If you’re a Scandal purist and want to wait for Thursday’s explosive finale before hearing any of the sudsy details, read no further. But if you ship Huckleberry Quinn, grab your gladiator gear and suit up for this exclusive sneak peek.
Last week’s episode left Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and her team with a ticking time bomb. Still, the real shocker came courtesy of Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Huck (Guillermo Diaz), who hooked up in a parking garage and proved disposing of bodies can be pretty steamy. Unfortunately, their passionate reunion meant Olivia’s terrorist mother could sneak right on by. And now, it seems Quinn’s breakup with B613 bad guy Charlie (George Newbern) isn’t exactly mutual.
In the clip, Charlie packs up his things, handing Quinn a mysterious envelope containing (what else?) a dangerous secret.
“Got something for you, call it a parting gift. Well, it’s not actually for you. It’s for Huck,” he says. “What’s in that envelope will destroy any hope of happiness you and your brand-new boyfriend might have.”
It is so not handled. Pour some red wine, pop Liv’s favorite popcorn and see what’s inside the envelope when the Season 3 finale of Scandal airs at 10 p.m. (ET) Thursday on ABC.
