According to a tvline.com interview with Shonda Rimes, the current Scandal story arc (election rigging, Hollis Doyle, etc.) will end with next week’s episode – Episode 2×13. Then, the story arc is going to jump forward 10 months!
Ummm, excuse me?! What the heck! Maybe something positive will come from this. Maybe Episode 2×14 begins with the Olitz wedding – one can only hope.
