List of Scandal episodes[edit]

I just sat down to work on List of Scandal episodes and see that SchrutedIt08 (talk · contribs) has redirected it. When do you think a new series should have an episode article. The only other one I did (List of The Firm episodes) was created before the series first aired. This one has aired two episodes and has stable ratings. I must think it is quite likely to be renewed and we should create this article now.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 02:10, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

The ratings maybe be stable but it's too early to count on a renewal yet. And even with the low ratings, The Firm is still expected to air around 22 episodes and with summaries and ratings information, that would give it sufficient notability and justify having its own episode list page. Scandal will only air seven, which is not sufficient notability. It's too late in the season for ABC to order an additional bunch of episodes for the first season and too early too tell whether or not there will be a second. The show is in no man's land right now and having the episode table and series overview on the main series article is more than enough. Any information you would want to see on an episode list page can be added there and if the series is renewed for a second season, then an episode list page can be created. Until then, it just isn't needed. SchrutedIt08 (talk) 02:19, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
O.K., but what is the rule of thumb for number of episodes necessitating a separate article?--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 03:11, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
There isn't really a rule of thumb. Usually it's a good idea just to wait for a second season or if a series gets an additional episode order. Normally a network will order 13 and based on the ratings of the first few order between 9-11 more. That's when an episode list could be created. That won't happen with Scandal.

Defiance?[edit]

This article refers to a scandalous "Defiance" operation but never says what it is or what it involved. For a reader unfamiliar with the show, it is very confusing. Just a few sentences that cleared that up would be welcome. Liz Read! Talk! 18:50, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Definitely will try to get to it (Defiance was a vote-switching scheme in Defiance County, Ohio which gave the election to Fitz.) Nate (chatter) 02:19, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

er... hrm?[edit]

"who has right to start her own crisis management firm" -

meaning- what? she has the right...? (e.g. le privilege du roi? Things haven't been done that way for centuries.) Corporate charter? ... ? Schissel | Sound the Note! 01:56, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

No, reverted; just another IP trying to make a terrible political joke out of left-wing/right-wing. Nate (chatter) 02:18, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

B613[edit]

Has it ever been *confirmed* that B613 is part of the CIA (as the article states)? I think not; people have only presumed this. Given that much has been made of the fact that B613 are not under the control of the President *or anyone else* then it really doesn't fit. "B613" would actually fit as the name of a ground floor Pentagon office in the B ring between corridors six and seven, and Fitz's walking along long corridors to get to it would fit that location. But I don't have any other source so a theory for the moment (unless you know better?) --AlisonW (talk) 20:56, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
