“Scandal” Promotes Women Being In Charge
Women are starting to take charge in TV dramas, much like “Scandal”
“How does it feel to be the most powerful person in the world?” This is the question Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) asks Olivia Pope in the season 6 finale of “Scandal.” She responds calmly, “It feels right.”
Olivia, played by Kerry Washington, proves to be the most powerful person in the world in the season 7 opener and final season of Scandal which airs Thursdays on ABC. We see Olivia taking charge as White House Chief of Staff and being in “Command” of the B613 undercover espionage agency and the ‘Boss’ to the new president of the United States Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young). She makes executive live or die decisions which catapult her into the role that men usually hold in a television series. Kerry Washington says that “We’re going out BIG” in the final season!
When asked what she felt about taping the final episode of “Scandal,” Kerry Washington responded, “It’s like being asked how would I feel about breaking up with a boyfriend that I’m still in love with!” That has to be a hard question to answer. Apparently, she and all the stars of “Scandal” love their roles and will miss each other as the 7th season ends the show. Fans will be glued to their television for the last 18 episodes that will not be disappointing and will bring the heat to the Thursday night lineup.
