Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) will have a major arc in the two-part finale for “Scandal” Season 6. ABC

“Scandal” Season 6, episode 15 and 16 will reveal whether or not Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) will finally get the inauguration that she’s been dreaming of all these years.

However, Entertainment Weekly released a slew of spoilers from various shows and stated that it is possible that Mellie’s inauguration won’t happen in the finale. Unfortunately, the publication didn’t unveil the reason why this could be the case. The two-part finale for the hit ABC series will kick off with episode 15, titled “Tick-Tock,” which will see Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) taking a big risk to make sure Mellie will be safe.

Earlier in the season, Frankie Vargas (Ricardo Chavira) was assassinated while he was giving a speech after he was named as the president of the country. The same thing could happen to Mellie so Olivia will be on red alert at the huge gathering.

“Scandal” Season 6, episode 16, titled “Transfer of Power,” will shift the focus to Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) and his last few days at the White House. While he’s still the president of the United States, Fitz will use his power to make some unexpected changes at the Oval Office.

Following the finale episode, “Scandal” will return to ABC with its seventh and final season. According to TV Line, it wasn’t the ratings for the Washington-starrer that caused it to be axed. Rather, it was executive producer Shonda Rhimes’ request to end the series after Season 7.

While speaking with NPR in November 2013, Rhimes said that she already knew that “Scandal” wouldn’t be on television as long as “Grey’s Anatomy.” “I knew the end of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and then we kept going, so that I finally just had to write that and move past it. Who knows, at this point how long that show’s going to go? It’s going to go as long as I feel interested in what happens to those characters,” she said.

But “Scandal,” which was on its third season at the time, was an entirely different story. “It’s very political. The political landscape on the outside, in the real world, will change – possibly before ‘Scandal’ is over. But I feel that there is a finite amount of ‘Scandal’ to be told. So I know what the end of ‘Scandal’ will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don’t think I’m going to change that… I know how long it will be. But we’ll see,” she added.

During the same interview, Rhimes also explained her decision to cast a woman of color as the lead star for “Scandal.” At the time, “How to Get Away With Murder” hasn’t aired on ABC yet. “There were certain things about that job… There were ways in which she might be treated that I thought were very specific to the black experience. We did an episode where she walks into the room, and the client immediately assumes that Abby – the tall, white redhead she works with – is Olivia Pope,” she said.

“Scandal” Season 6, episodes 15 and 16 will air on ABC on May 18 at 9 p.m. EST.
