Claire: Anything you’ve got on Scandal, please and thank you!
Well, only because you asked so nicely. Since Papa Pope got everything he wanted in the Scandal season finale—Olivia got on a plane with Jake leaving DC and he’s back as the B613 boss—how is he dealing with his success in the new season? “We’ll find out!”Joe Morton said with a laugh when we accosted him (politely, of course!) for scoop. “I think if Olivia returns, he’s going to be kind of concerned about that, wondering why she’s back and what for and how that’s going to work out. I also think what’s going to happen is people are going to find out what I did and sparks are going to fly.” That’s quite an understatement, seeing as how Rowan ruthlessly assassinated the president’s son!

Unfortunately, the Scandal star won’t even be back for their off-screen breakup. That’s right, it’s over. “We’re going to have them broken up,” executive producer Erica Messer says. “The audience will learn that in the first half of the season. The goal will be to see if he can get out there and meet someone new.” Bonus: Hotch’s son Jack will return in the Halloween episode, which will be directed by Thomas Gibson.
