Season 3 Spoilers: Will Quinn Keep Working for Olivia Pope? Katie Lowes Says…
The first rule of Olivia Pope and Associates is you don’t cross Olivia Pope. Quinn Perkins learned that lesson on Season 3, Episode 9, “YOLO” when Huck found out that she had betrayed Liv’s mission by killing the only man who could shine a light on what happened to Olivia’s mom on the day she supposedly died.
Although Quinn didn’t want to kill anyone, she was aware that B613 operative Charlie wasn’t exactly the squeaky clean type. When she stabbed the target with a needle, she was shocked and terrified to find that she had accidentally killed him — and even more disparaged when she found out she was now trapped in “Wonderland.”
Huck bound her in duct tape and removed her teeth with pliers, but now what? Scenes from Season 3’s winter finale, “A Door Marked Exit,” have indicated that Quinn is actually working with Huck now, against Charlie and Rowan, but that doesn’t mean the end of her struggle is near. Besides the purgatory of being in B613, Quinn still has to deal with what she’s done to Olivia.
Actress Katie Lowes spoke to Huffington Post about what she’s up against, explaining "You know, I think she really, really, really in her heart loves Huck and Olivia Pope and being a gladiator. I really think that’s where she identifies her home. I don’t know if Huckleberry Quinn can survive this. I don’t know if she’ll be able to work at Olivia Pope and Associates. I don’t know.”
WHAT?! No Huckleberry Quinn taking down bad guys with their stealthy tech abilities? We don’t know if we could handle that. But don’t fret quite yet, Gladiators. Katie doesn’t say it’s over because she absolutely knows it is. “We’re only one episode ahead of you, so we actually don’t know anything. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I think Quinn just loves him so much, but she is changed. You will see in this episode she is a changed person. You can’t just go through something like that and not suffer the consequences. So, I don’t know if she will ever be able to go. I don’t know."
We’ll find out what happens with our favorite identity-changing newbie in the Season 3 winter finale on Thursday, December 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Will you be watching?
