Last week’s episode of Scandal ended on a note that Katie Lowes did not see coming. In the final minutes of the episode, amid a minefield of OMG moments, Charlie walked up to Quinn in an alley and said after being caught on a surveillance camera killing a guard, she was now under the control of B613. Or, in fewer words: “Welcome to Wonderland.”
What’s in store for Quinn now? Lowes fills us in below.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First of all, I have to start with the Charlie-Quinn of it all. Do you think Charlie’s first kiss was manipulation? Or real feelings?
KATIE LOWES: I think that it is a total manipulation — at first. I really do. I think he knows that it’s a weak spot for her; I think he knows she hasn’t had any type of personal life in a long time. Rowan and Charlie, as characters, I think they kind of know everything that is going on at Olivia Pope and Associates. I think they’ve done their research on Quinn, and they know it’s a weakness for her. So I think it’s a manipulation at first. But I do think that the car scene we saw last week — where they are sitting there on this weird, awkward date stalking this security guard — I saw in George Newbern’s performance a little bit of conflict. We were asking the director a lot of questions while filming, ‘How does he feel about her?’ I think these are two people who have some similarities there. Maybe in a different world, on a different planet, maybe there could be something other than that, but at the moment ,it’s all about the higher powers that be and getting the job done. READ FULL STORY
