The highly anticipated crossover between Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder is upon us! Check out photos from the TGIT event, complete with some juicy scoop on what's in store!
Annalise and Olivia Pope came face-to-face for the first time during Thursday's hour, but we'll have to wait until March 1 (9-11 p.m. ET) for the official crossover.
During the Scandal hour, Viola Davis and Aja Naomi King will make their way over to the political fixer drama.
Here' the logline for the Scandal hour: “In the midst of moving on from the White House, Olivia gets an unexpected visitor in criminal defense attorney Annalise Keating, who seeks her help in fast-tracking a judicial reform class action to the United States Supreme Court. However, after Olivia’s recent fall from political grace, it’s going to be more challenging than ever to get the support they need.”
The Scandal hour, which is called “Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself,” was directed by Tony Goldwyn.
During the How to Get Away with Murder hour of the crossover, titled “Lahey v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Kerry Washington and Cornelius Smith Jr. will appear.
Here’s the logline for the HTGAWM hour: “As Annalise’s class-action case hangs in the balance, a meeting with the esteemed Washington D.C. fixer, Olivia Pope, proves to be crucial in getting the opportunity to argue her case in the nation’s highest court. Meanwhile, Bonnie discovers concerning information pertaining to Simon that threatens to expose what really happened during [the] night he was shot.”
“It was black girl magic on steroids!” Viola Davis previously told EW. “Me and Kerry dancing to ‘Rock the Boat’? Hey, it can’t get any better.”
“I really love Viola. I have such immense respect and admiration for her," Kerry Washington says.
The Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder crossover (see first footage here) will air Thursday, March 1 starting at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. At 8 p.m. ET that same night, Grey’s Anatomy kicks off the TGIT Crossover event by introducing Station 19′s leading lady Jaina Lee Ortiz (get a first look here).
