The end of Scandal is nigh, but that doesn’t mean the cast has any inkling how their characters will go out.

When the cast of Scandal sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show on Wednesday, they revealed they have no idea how the series will end when it wraps its seventh and final season later this spring.

Bellamy Young said that they’re shooting the penultimate episode currently and they have “no idea” what’s going to happen.

“Even that’s changing while we’re shooting it,” added Kerry Washington. “We know enough to know that if we feel this episode is leading us down a path then the rug is going to get ripped out from under us. It’s terrifying.”

Young also joked that they’re all hoping they survive to the end so that they can stick around for a Scandal movie somewhere down the line. But Tony Goldwyn took the opposite approach, saying “Josh Malina correctly pointed out that we should all be killed because we’ve done horrible, horrible things.”

“Everyone should die — that would be the only just ending for the show,” concluded Washington.
