Scandal (10 p.m., ABC) — In the series finale of “Scandal,” the Gladiators make the ultimate sacrifice in order to bring down Cyrus and Jake. If we can believe what last week's episode was steering us toward, it looks like Olivia and the whole gang could be headed to prison — coming clean on all their past misdeeds so that Truth can save the Republic. But we know Shonda Rhimes loves a big ole twist, so who knows. Not to be missed!
