'Scandal': All the Details (So Far) About the Final Season

The seventh and final season of ABC's Scandal is beginning to take shape.

Following a crazy penultimate season in which Shonda Rhimes' game-changing drama had to scrap storylines because they hewed too close to the country's real political landscape (Russians hacking the election!), the final run will kick off with Bellamy Young's former first lady Mellie Grant back in the White House — as the president.

Below, The Hollywood Reporter rounds up everything to know (so far) about the final 18 episodes of Scandal.

‘Homeland’ Recap: Paranoia Abounds in Episode 8, ‘Alt.Truth’

‘Homeland’ Recap: Paranoia Abounds in Episode 8, ‘Alt.Truth’
“Alt.Truth” ranks as the most paranoid episode of “Homeland” since Nicholas Brody was finally outed as a fellow traveler of terrorists in season one.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen the March 12 episode of “Homeland.”

Simply put, the eighth installment is the best hour of “Homeland’s” sixth season so far. It has everything that “Homeland” does best — capers, cat-and-mouse chases, the formation of unholy alliances, snappy banter about ideological dilemmas, whiplash-inducing plot twists, and a surfeit of grim-face Saul and quiver-face Carrie. By the end, the bell tolls for a well-loved character. And there’s a touch of “Flash Gordon” in the closing seconds that is forgivable because everything else that comes before is riveting.

“Alt.Truth” is sharply written by Patrick Harbinson, razor-sharply directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, and grounded by incredible work (as usual) from stars Claire Danes (Carrie Mathison), Mandy Patinkin (Saul Berenson) and Rupert Friend (Peter Quinn). The

‘Homeland’ Recap: Dar Adal Works All Angles in Episode 7, ‘Imminent Risk’

‘Homeland’ Recap: Dar Adal Works All Angles in Episode 7, ‘Imminent Risk’
F. Murray Abraham is very good at being very bad as the second half of “Homeland’s” sixth season begins with episode 7, “Imminent Risk.”

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not see the March 5 episode of “Homeland.”

Abraham’s CIA honcho Dar Adal is an evil whirling dervish in the episode written by Ron Nyswaner and directed by Tucker Gates.

By “Homeland” standards, the set-up of Adal is the man behind all of the menace that Carrie is facing is so on the nose that it raises the prospect of another story twist to come to possibly redeem Adal’s actions against his current and former CIA colleagues. The search for evidence of Iran’s suspected “parallel program” of nuclear weaponry development in North Korea has been the key storyline in season six to date. This episode seeks to convince viewers that the only real parallel program is the one being run by Adal to

‘Homeland’ Star Shaun Toub on Javadi’s Return, Possible Carrie Mathison Reunion
Old friends are rarely welcome when they return in the world of “Homeland.” Though many fans were happy to see Shaun Toub, the show’s Machiavellian Iranian intelligence chief Majid Javadi, return to the Showtime drama’s sixth season, his presence is not without its consequences. In his heydey of Season 3, Javadi proved he would do “any and everything to survive,” Toub told TheWrap of his character. Now a double agent for U.S. intelligence, things are no different this time around. Also Read: 'Homeland' Season 6 Trailer Takes Carrie to Heart of New York (Video) Javadi’s American

‘Homeland’ Trouper Shaun Toub Talks Return of ‘Charming’ Psychopath Javadi

‘Homeland’ Trouper Shaun Toub Talks Return of ‘Charming’ Psychopath Javadi
One of the intriguing twists of “Homeland” this season has been the return of high-ranking Iranian intelligence officer Majid Javadi, the Saul Berenson frenemy that we first met in season three.

Javadi, played by Shaun Toub, did all kinds of heinous things in season three, from savagely killing his estranged wife and daughter-in-law to being revealed as the mastermind of the CIA bombing that was blamed on Nicholas Brody.

Saul and his CIA protege Carrie Mathison wound up turning Javadi into a CIA asset who becomes an advocate for moderation in the Iranian high command. Javadi helped sell the top brass on the agreement to halt Iran’s nuclear weapons program in exchange for the easing of United Nations sanctions. The question of whether Iran is cheating on this Faustian bargain is a central storyline of season six.

In Toub’s hands, Javadi is a compelling psychopath. You can’t trust a word he says, and

‘Homeland’ Review: After Priming the Political Powder Keg, The Switch (Finally) Flipped on Season 6

  • Indiewire
[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Homeland” Season 6, Episode 4, “A Flash of Light,” contains spoilers.]

Immediate Reaction

“No one gets out.” That’s what Sekou’s friend said after the Muslim-American protester was set free without explanation by the FBI. Sekou took offense at the time, knowing his own innocence, but his friend’s words turned out to be tragically prophetic, as the video-making self-righteous objector was (likely) killed in an explosion at the end of Episode 4, “A Flash of Light.”

Though we saw it coming as soon as he climbed into one of the vans Quinn photographed the night before, said knowledge did nothing to lessen the impact. The symbolism alone is enough to tear you up inside, as the implied murder of a Muslim-American by the U.S. government hits a little too close to home while foreign relations remain strained (to say the least) in our current political climate.

But the episode as a whole felt focused, lean, and emotionally honest. From

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

I’ve said time and time again that despite its merits the biggest flaws in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show has been its lack of fully developing characters from the Marvel Comic Book Universe. The show (which spiraled out from The Avengers movie) is ripe to explore and showcase some of the best characters that might just not be ready or capable of making an impact on the big screen. While some characters have found a way to appear (Deathlock, Daisy Rumble Johnson, Absorbing Man, and recently Ghost Rider) a great majority of villains have either been created specifically for the show (and suddenly now appearing in the comics) or have just been throw away characters that have very little to zero ties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Comic Book Universe.
