Is Quinn Perkins truly lifeless?
Although followers waited two months with hopes that Quinn (Katie Lowes) was one way or the other nonetheless alive, Scandal’s winter premiere revealed that one of many authentic Gladiators and the brand new head of QPA is definitely lifeless — supposedly.
After a standoff with Olivia (Kerry Washington) resulted in Rowan (Joe Morton) purportedly taking pictures Quinn within the fall finale, Thursday’s hour opened with Rowan destroying a automotive housing what seemed to be Quinn’s physique. Partial dental, blood, and hair samples later indicated to police that Quinn Perkins is, certainly, lifeless. Once more, possibly. Probably.
Regardless that we noticed a physique, we by no means noticed Quinn’s face, nor did we ever see Rowan shoot her, so there’s nonetheless hope that that is all a ploy by Rowan to essentially present Olivia the error of her methods, or possibly even to show her allies towards her. In any case, it’s not lengthy earlier than Huck (Guillermo Diaz) mainly tracks Quinn’s demise again to Olivia.
On the brilliant aspect, the top of the hour dropped an enormous clue that Quinn might nonetheless be alive, and even presumably working in tandem with Rowan. After a despondent Charlie (George Newbern) arrived at Rowan’s to mainly rejoin B613, he hears the cries of a child. May this be Quinn’s child? Was it born earlier than Quinn’s demise? Or is Quinn nonetheless alive and effectively?
For the report, when EW lately hit the set, Lowes was current. Nevertheless, she was coy on whether or not that signaled excellent news. “I can’t say anything much about why I’m here, but you know that the show deals a lot with flashbacks and time not necessarily moving in chronological order,” Lowes stated. “You will find out very early on as soon as we come back what Quinn’s fate is. All I can say is some of the stuff you’re going to see is definitely the hardest stuff I’ve ever done for sure.”
In fact, the unhappy fact might truly be that Quinn is lifeless. That memorial, with these closest to Quinn remembering fond recollections, was fairly an emotional sendoff. And let’s not overlook that the winter premiere did kick off what are finally the ultimate 11 episodes of the sequence. This tends to be when the stakes are actual, even when it hurts us past restore. As a result of completely satisfied endings aren’t all the time achievable. However, for now, we’ll maintain out hope.
