Down goes another gladiator.
After 3 years and 3 seasons, Columbus Short a.k.a. Harrison Wright is leaving the ABC television series, Scandal.
“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for three years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today,” said Short in a statement regarding his departure according to BuzzFeed.
Most people would think the reason for him leaving is because of allegedly being involved in a bar fight or the incident with his wife, but that is not the case. Although the decision of Short’s departure wasn’t made by him, directors are saying that it was made for “creative purposes”.
I am guessing since the show ended with Harrison finding out that Oliva’s dad was involved with the death of the President’s son, maybe command decided to take him out.
In the season finale of Scandal, a number of events took place: The president lost his son to his election for his 2nd term as President of the United States of America. Olivia’s Dad Rowan Pope got his position as Command of B613 back and also has full custody of Olivia’s Mom, Maya Lewis. Olivia Pope left her army of gladiators to be with Jake Ballard. In the hopes of starting a new life, Olivia left her team of gladiators to fend for themselves. With the amount of scandals in the white house, it’ll be too much for two gladiator to handle on their own.
With more surprises to come, this shocking news threw us completely off track with our future hopes of the upcoming 4th season of Scandal.
