Playing Set Secrets from the 'Scandal' Season Finale

The season finale of Scandal is just hours away and with Shonda Rhimes' track record, we can be certain of one thing: nothing is for certain.

Rumor has it that as many as three characters could die in the episode and the first lady (Bellamy Young) could be kidnapped by Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) evil father. Even cast members are in the dark about how the finale will actually unfold, as Shonda confirmed to ET that she recut what was said to be a dark, twisted ending.

While there are many roads that the plot could take, we think the ultimate twist would be if Olivia became pregnant.

"I think there's a part of her that dreams of that life," Kerry told ET. "But whether she actually practically wants it in her life is a big question mark. I don't know if she'd have a concrete answer to that question."

Then there's the somber clip that raises the question of whether Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) are calling it quits.

If the characters did go their separate ways, that would put an abrupt end to four seasons of secret rendezvous and steamy sex scenes, but judging by our interview with Katie Lowes, their relationship was doomed from the start.

"We all would love to see Fitz and Olivia walking into the sunset, but then what would we do a show about?" Katie Lowes told ET on set. "There's got to be the stuff. That's what's interesting."

Scandal's season four finale airs tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC.
