Scandal - Season 3 - Shonda Rhimes Interview

We should start with Huck and Quinn. He removed her teeth. When did that become an idea, and how in the world do those characters come back from that? If they come back from it.
To me it felt the natural progression of Huck’s character. If Quinn’s gonna do these things, then Huck is gonna do what Huck does. I try not to make the characters bend to our will. If I’ve set up a world in which this is what Huck does, and this is the way Huck treats people who are traitors, and this is how Huck protects Olivia, then that’s what he’d have to do to Quinn as well.

But they were so close.
I think of them as family! And it was very interesting, because I wrote that line for Huck, “I’ve never done this with somebody in the family, with somebody I love.” I wrote it and I thought, in a weird way, that makes it feel special to him. If you go with Huck’s mindset, it makes it feel more intimate and more special and probably, oddly, more exciting if you think about who he is. For me, it’s a reminder that as much as we all love these people, they’re all still monsters. They’re all still monsters walking around in human skin.

Especially because things move so fast, do you have a barometer for how bonkers you can get with this show? Is there such a thing as “too far” or “going off the rails” in terms of how badly and outrageously these characters can behave?
It sounds really stupid but I truly trust my gut. Sometimes it’s like, “That’s too much,” or “That’s just right.” Mostly it’s about what we as writers want to see and what we’re enjoying and how the story feels. The pacing has to feel right. When it’s off, sometimes I feel like we’ve told too much or not enough. So you just have to get it to a place where it’s calibrated just right.
