The question on everyone's mind after Scandal's sizzling Season 1 finale (Season 1, Episode 7: "Grant: For the People") is "Who is Quinn?" Because she's definitely not just a lucky lawyer who got a dream job for no reason.

The show's star, Kerry Washington (Olivia Pope) spoke to the Huffington Post about the finale, and dished on what she knows about Quinn's big secret.

And it turns out, she doesn't know much!  "Shonda knows," she said. "Well, I think Shonda knows. I don't even know if Shonda knows!"

Indeed, Shonda wouldn't even give the answer to the head of ABC. "I will tell you that the head of the network, when they saw the final cut of Episode 7, called Shonda and was like, 'I need to know.' And Shonda was like, 'Then give me a Season 2.'" Ha! That's why Shonda is the queen of Shondaland.

Kerry is excited about the mystery, because this question has gotten everyone invested — even the crew! "Crews are so jaded — they see so much work everyday, and they've seen so much bad work. But I will say that one of the things that made me so happy was that the crew was coming to me with theories at the end of the season."
