Scandal Fans Have A Lot to say About That Season Finale – See the Best Reactions

Scandal finished season 5 with plenty of surprises and political twists and turns.

Warning: Spoilers ahead for Thursday’s season finale of Scandal.

On the Democratic side, everything was coming up roses for Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry). As illustrated by Olivia (Kerry Washington), OPA and Scandal fan reactions, everyone was surprised to see Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) former chief of staff standing next to Frankie Vargas (Ricardo Chavira) on stage at the convention as his vice presidential running mate.

Even better: Fans can look forward to Mellie Grant’s (Bellamy Young) shocked reaction next season.

And on the Republican side, Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) was selected (by Olivia) as Mellie’s VP partner. Though Olivia thinks she came up with the plan so she can save Jake from Command (Joe Morton), neither of them know just how much of a puppet master Papa Pope really is. Rowan sipping red wine on the couch, watching the VP announcement drama unfold on live TV (and saying “that’s my girl”) is the ultimate cliffhanger until the season 6 premiere arrives.

Fan reaction to the twist was swift. Check out some of the best below:
