Everything was definitely handled in the Season 3 finale. Is it time for Season 4 yet? Obviously, SPOILER ALERT!

Seriously, SPOILER ALERT if you have not seen the Scandal Season 3 finale, “The Price of Free and Fair Election.”

1. The bomb went off almost right away, leaving plenty of time for a plethora of other metaphorical bombs.

2. Every news channel showed Vice President Langston tending to the bombing victims over the president’s speech.

And rightfully so, because who really cares what he has to say at this point?

3. Olivia completely and wholeheartedly cared for and trusted her father.

Season 3 Olivia really should have listened to Season 2 Olivia, because she knew how to see things clearly.

4. Huckleberry Quinn made things official at OPA.

CLASSIC SCANDAL!

9. And then Fitz wholeheartedly cared for and trusted Papa Pope.

He, too, should have listened to Season 2 Olivia.

11. Papa Pope was back behind a tinted car window.

Where he is meant to be.

12. And it became apparent that everything this entire season was a total ruse just to get Olivia on a damn plane out of town.

Papa Pope really is “the hell.”

13. Tom proved to be the most loyal member of B613.

Sorry, Jake. Killing three people on the street was ballsy of you, but Tom takes things to a next level.

14. Like, really loyal.

In the last 10 minutes, more information was explained than could be fully processed.

18. Huck came face to face with his real family for the first time in 12 years.

With the exception of the incident in the train station, but that doesn’t really count as an encounter.

19. Harrison was left for dead.

ABC / Via Emily Orley / BuzzFeed

Maybe it’s for the best. With Adnan dead, so is most of his backstory.

20. Mama Pope was put in her proper place.

21. And, maybe, Olivia has finally given up on Vermont.
