After pitbull attorney Annalise appears on Scandal, Olivia — now President Mellie Grant’s (Bellamy Young) chief of staff — will head over to How to Get Away with Murder. The producers aren’t spilling about the how and why of the big event, but we suspect it has something to do with Annalise’s class action lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania over wrongful convictions.

“It was black girl magic on steroids!” Davis tells EW. “Me and Kerry dancing to ‘Rock the Boat’? Hey, it can’t get any better.”

Adds Washington: “I really love Viola. I have such immense respect and admiration for her.”

Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC, followed by HTGAWM at 10 p.m.
