Is Scandal’s Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) headed for the White House?
After this week’s reveal that Cyrus was not behind the assassination of President-elect Frankie Vargas, Cyrus could be cleared of all charges and continue his path to 1600 Penn—but first he has to be released from jail.
Luckily, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and her team of gladiators now know the truth and will hopefully help Cyrus become a free man.
“I assume that somehow Cyrus is going to find a way to be freed, that Olivia’s team is going to help with that,” Perry told The Hollywood Reporter.
Things move lightning fast in the Scandal-verse, so if/when Cyrus is free could we see him as the next POTUS sooner rather than later?
“I think there is still a chance, yeah,” Perry said. “And I was reminded by someone, gosh if that happens he’d be our first gay president!”
Unless you count Frank Underwood from House of Cards…
Watch Scandal swear in its first gay president (even if it’s just in a dream sequence) from this week’s episode below:
