The Scandal episode was written by Raamla Mohamed and directed by Tony Goldwyn (the same actor who plays the role of former president, Fitzgerald Grant).
The crossover will begin on a new episode of "Scandal" and conclude on the episode of "How to Get Away with Murder" immediately after.
The Scandal/How to Get Away With Murder crossover presumably has similar targets.
On Wednesday afternoon, Washington took to Instagram to post a photo from the How to Get Away With Murder set which prompted Davis to respond with a photo from the set of Scandal. Given that Washington herself was on the How to Get Away with Murder set, you have to think that she's one of the people crossing over. In an interview with Deadline, Nowalk says the crossover will cover episodes of both shows, which means it has to happen in the next couple of months. This spot look familiar?! (See the first photos, below.) Rhimes, who exec produces both shows, also shared a page from the script.
Though an official airdate has not yet been released, according to reports, the crossover event will air sometime in the spring.
"Scandal" is now entering the tail end of its seventh and final season, so we most likely won't have to wait too long to see the mashup.
