*“Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” will air its long-anticipated crossover episodes on March 1, following the end of the Winter Olympics, ABC announced Thursday.
Following the night’s first TGIT crossover of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Station 19” at 8 p.m., special episodes of “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” will follow at 9 and 10 p.m., respectively.
The “Scandal” episode entitled “Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself” will see Olivia (Kerry Washington), in the midst of moving on from the White House and getting an unexpected visitor — criminal defense attorney Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), who seeks her help in fast-tracking a judicial reform class action to the United States Supreme Court. However, after Olivia’s recent fall from political grace, it’s going to be more challenging than ever to get the support they need.
“How To Get Away With Murder” star Aja Naomi King will also guest star in “Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself,” which was written by Raamla Mohamed and directed by Tony Goldwyn.
The events of Annalise’s class-action case hang in the balance after “Scandal,” which leads into “How To Get Away With Murder’s” “Lahey v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” In that episode, a meeting with Olivia proves to be crucial in getting the opportunity to argue Annalise’s case in the nation’s highest court. Meanwhile, Bonnie (Liza Weil) discovers concerning information pertaining to Simon (Behzad Dabu) that threatens to expose what really happened during night he was shot.
