B613 Actually Ruined Scandal

Scandal B613

We’re coming up on the 10-year anniversary of when ABC’s Scandal instantly engrossed us with the tale of an elite D.C. fixer who also happens to be the married POTUS’ mutual crush. And just as the Defiance election-rigging scheme was a compelling arc, B613 was at first a juicy deviation. At first. But over time, the super-secret government spy organization consumed absolutely everything in its path and roped in nearly every character. What was once a fizzy drama about white hats became a whole lotta white noise. Yeah, B613 really did a number on the once red-hot drama. —Matt Webb Mitovich
