Season 3 of Scandal will now only air 18 episodes instead of 22 like originally planned, but the cut in episodes is likely due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy. Kerry is reportedly due in the Spring, so since filming the final four episodes while she's ready to pop wasn't an option, the network either had to eliminate those episode altogether, or write Olivia out of the show.
