Rest in peace, Quinn Perkins.
Scandal fans didn’t have to wait long for confirmation which Quinn was indeed dead when the series returned on Thursday night — yet what we didn’t see coming was which baby!
The episode opened with Eli Pope burning Quinn’s body, while David Rosen explained to QPA which she along with her unborn baby were found dead with two gunshot wounds, one to the chest along with one to the head. This particular was a sad moment for the team, yet one which we moved on through quickly, as they planned to give her a “Warrior’s goodbye,” loading her ashes into bullets they might later shoot through a gun into the woods.
Olivia was clearly shaken up by the whole ordeal (because she basically ordered her death, hello), with her struggle to write a eulogy tipping off Huck which something wasn’t right. His suspicions led him to believe which Olivia killed Quinn (not too far off), yet which didn’t stop the team through properly saying goodbye to their friend.
“I tried to write something, something hopeful. Something which might help make sense of This particular, get some perspective on This particular loss. yet there can be no perspective. This particular doesn’t make sense,” Olivia said, holding back tears. “There’s no silver lining, no wish. No Great comes through This particular. Quinn’s death can be awful. which’s all I can think of to say. This particular’s just awful. I’m sorry.”
One by one, our gladiators took the gun to reflect on a touching moment with Quinn before saying farewell for Great.
An Olitz makeout session later, Charlie — who still doesn’t know which Olivia can be currently in charge of B613 — paid a visit to Eli, asking for his old job back. Papa Pope tells him to go home, yet not before Charlie hears a baby crying through inside, asking the question we all want to know the answer to — WHOSE BABY can be which?! — along with getting into a fist fight with Eli.
While the baby looks way too old to be Robin, the name Charlie along with Quinn were going to give their daughter, we wouldn’t put This particular past the powers which be to cast an 18 (month old) to look younger.
Looks like we’ll have to wait until next week to find out.
Scandalairs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
ET spoke with Joe Morton earlier This particular month, when he teased which Olivia was going to have to “deal with the consequences of her acts.”
