When Does 'Scandal' Come Back? Shondaland Faves Help You Cope With TGIT Withdrawal — VIDEO
If the cold, harsh, TV-less winter is getting you down, you're not alone — TGIT withdrawal is real, and the casts of Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, and Grey's Anatomy are here to help. It's been more than a month since the midseason finales of all three Shondaland shows aired, and with the trio not coming back until Jan. 29, there are still a long few weeks to cope without Pope. In an amazing new promo from ABC, cast members explain how TGIT withdrawal disorder is caused from an "OMG deficiency in the brain" and that millions are suffering in silence "because they can no longer watch their straight-up TV jams." HTGAWM's Jack Falahee hits the nail on the head with his question: "Does life feel like you'll never again stand in the sun, or see man parts on a dead girl's phone?" Yes, I'm right there with you, and I also miss seeing Connor's face weekly, for the record.
In addition to seeing some remedy ideas from the three casts — including talking, tweeting, or re-watching with friends over popcorn and red wine — there's also an epic warning message in fine print, just like a real medical commercial: "While re-watching TGIT, call your doctor if you're prone to outbursts of OMG, have uncontrollable tweeting or persistent symptoms like breathlessness, disbelief, heart palpitations, eyes popping out of your head, hot flashes, cold sweats, dizziness, or a good ol' fashioned fainting spell."
Since I'm suffering from all of the above, I'm just going to go ahead and dance it out just like Matt McGorry does at the end of the promo. If you can, grab a friend and do it up just like Meredith and Cristina would. Oh no... now I'm crying thinking about how Dr. Yang is still gone. It's a never-ending cycle.
