*Shondaland’s finest – Olivia Pope and Annaliese Keating – will at last meet face to face on a crossover episode of “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” being filmed as we speak, ABC announced Wednesday.
“Scandal’s” Kerry Washington and “HTGAWM’s” Viola Davis teased the crossover in a series of coy social media posts on Wednesday morning. Washington put out a photo of herself on the “How to Get Away With Murder” set with the caption, “Hey Ms @violadavis check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?”
Davis followed up shortly thereafter with a photo of herself on the “Scandal” set with a caption that read, “Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!”
Then “How to Get Away With Murder” creator Pete Nowalk jumped in with a tweet of the script page that sets up the meeting between Washington and Davis’ characters.
