‘Scandal’ & ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Crossover Episode In The Works
SCANDAL & HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER CROSSOVER
Scandal, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, is currently in its final season, but the network is hoping to keep Pope’s character alive by giving her a role in HTGAWM. Washington shared a behind-the-scenes shot of herself dressed in character but on set of HTGAWM. She called out her friend and HTGAWM star Viola Davis – “Hey Ms @violadavis – check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?”
Davis, who plays Annalise Keating on the popular show, didn’t miss a beat, and posted a pic of herself in Scandal‘s Oval Office. “Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!” she said.
