'Scandal' appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers

Leah Remini will sub for Erin Andrews as 'Dancing with the Stars' co-host

"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers
“Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” PLUS: “Scandal” Secret Service agent talks about his big role.
