Scandal hasn’t jumped the shark yet.
Let’s face it, it may only be a matter of time before Scandal launches itself over a predatory fish at some point in its existence. Take into consideration the dramatic premise, which often takes a leap or two to keep us on the edge our seats, then factor in Grey’s Anatomy — another successful Shonda Rhimes drama — and I don’t think it’s unfair to say that Scandal could very well end up jumping the proverbial shark. At the very least, its frequent efforts to top itself with melodramatic moments, nail biting cliffhangers and will-they-wont-they Liv/Fitz romance arcs, its shark-jumping odds are high. But on the bright side, that hasn’t happened yet. We haven’t seen Scandal: The Musical, nor has Olivia Pope spent an episode wandering around in limbo following a near-death experience. In fact, the series is at the top of its game and as must-watch as ever, securing a spot on the short list of TV shows on the air that I need to watch live. So it may just be pessimism that’s keeping my guard up, and I’m grateful for its current state of addictiveness and all of the drama packed into each scandalous episode.

Kelly’s also thankful that…
