    This Week's "Scandal" Went Out With A Bang

    Warning: HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD! Shonda Rhimes is now a murderer like all of her characters. Because that episode just killed us all.

    Just when you thought Vice President Langston was about to get assassinated, someone else ended up on the wrong end of a gun.

    In Scandal's March 13 episode, Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), aka Command, shot two women and then turned the gun on David Rosen (Josh Malina) and/or James Novak (Dan Bucatinsky). In the final moment of the unlucky 13th episode of Season 3, titled "No Sun on the Horizon," a gunshot sounded over a black screen.

    And now all Gladiators are wondering is #WhoGotShot.

    Calling the last 30 seconds of the episode shocking is an understatement.

    Can somebdy find my jaw tho !?? #scandal

    Emotions ran high for everyone watching.

    WTF just happened I need a hug #Scandal

    And understandably, no one wanted to go through it alone.

    I'm going to start watching #Scandal with a support group and yes someone will have to hold my hand for the entire show

    And because seven whole days is way too long to wait, predictions came pouring out.

    If one dies, they both have to die or else the shooter will be outed. So maybe neither dies? Yeah, I don't believe it either. #Scandal

    James is dead, the way Cyrus was talking to him like it was last time but the writers might of set that up for us to think that way #scandal

    I hope y'all know that was David Rosen that just got offed. He's been screwing with the "process" this whole season. #Scandal

    Some of which could actually work in Shondaland.

    I'm going to guess Jake is going to leave those two alive and fake their death. Then maybe they join his team. #Scandal

    And Katie Lowes (Quinn) was really on the same page.

    “@DoraHuttoG: @KatieQLowes holy fucking shit. #Scandal” that about sums it up.

    But David (Joshua Malina) didn't seem too concerned. Is he trying to tell us something through Twitter code?
