Fans may be saying goodbye to Quinn Perkins when “Scandal” wraps its final season next month, but her real-life counterpart Katie Lowes is remaining a resident of Shondaland for the foreseeable future. However, this time the TGIT actress isn’t starring in a Shonda Rhimes’ series but is hosting the production company’s first-ever podcast.
“That’s right! I get to stay in Shondaland for ‘Katie’s Crib’ which is the best!” Lowes told People Thursday. The show will be mommy-centric.
“This whole thing of motherhood is insane. It’s a rollercoaster, which I love because the Shondaland logo is a rollercoaster. That’s basically how I feel every day,” Lowes joked.

The actress and husband Adam Shapiro welcomed their first child, son Albee, in October 2017.
“Shondaland approached me about it actually,” Lowes added. “They came to me and thought, ‘I feel like you’re going through this huge thing called motherhood and there are probably a lot of people that would benefit going through this stuff with you.’ It’s been amazing.”
The weekly podcast will feature fellow celebrity moms like Kristen Bell, Casey Wilson, Jennifer Finnigan, Angelique Cabral and June Diane Raphael.

The final season of “Scandal” airs Thursdays at 10/9 c on ABC.

We’ve made it through another year of Shondaland and we’re waiting (impatiently) for the return of TGIT in 2018. Here, we look back on some of the biggest twists this year from “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.”
ABC

“Grey’s Anatomy”
When we found out Amelia had a brain tumor
While so many of the surgeons at Grey-Sloan Memorial have had to have surgeries of their own, Dr. Amelia Shepherd’s is the daddy of them all. We found out in Season 14 this year that she has had a giant brain tumor for years, and it’s probably been behind some of her more questionable decisions.
ABC

“Grey’s Anatomy”
When we found out Megan Hunt was alive — and has a son
At the end of Season 13, we found out that Dr. Owen Hunt’s little sister and the love of Dr. Nathan Riggs’ life Megan Hunt isn’t dead after all, and she’s being air lifted back to the United States in critical condition. In Season 14, we found out she adopted a son while she was a prisoner of war.
ABC

“Grey’s Anatomy”
When the hospital got hacked
In the Season 14 midseason finale, Grey-Sloan Memorial gets hacked with ransomware, but the implications are way bigger than just paying the millions of dollars ransom in Bitcoin. Just when Bailey tries to reach Jackson to transfer the money, he and Maggie get in a helicopter accident — and we’re left with a cliffhanger till the season returns in 2018. 
ABC

“Scandal”
When we thought Huck died 
Remember when Huck’s girlfriend Meg shot him multiple times and left him for dead?  We do.  It was the worst week of our life, waiting to find out if he lived or died. Also, it was basically Abby’s fault.  Great job, Red.
ABC

“Scandal”
When they teased an epic Mama Pope confrontation
In Season 6, we’re left with a looming confrontation with Liv’s mom and Rowan and Rosen teaming up to take her down, especially after wondering who this mystery henchwoman is. 
ABC

“Scandal”
When that plane explodes
Quinn convinces Yasmeen to return home to Bashran, but that plan backfires as soon as the plane straight up explodes on the tarmac after Yasmeen and Rashad board, effectively igniting an international crisis. 
ABC

“How to Get Away With Murder”
When Wes died … and we find out who killed him
If you haven’t watched, we won’t spoil who killed Wes, but we can promise you it will take some wild guessing (or Annalise Keating-level lawyering) to figure it out. The end of Season 3 had us reeling with this twist, and the loss of one of our favorite characters. 
ABC

“How to Get Away With Murder”
When Laurel gets pregnant
We find out Laurel is pregnant, and we think it’s Wes’ because of a strategically places flashback of Laurel telling him their condom broke. But later on it’s revealed that Laurel was also sleeping with Frank at the same time, leaving the baby’s parentage in question. 
ABC

“How to Get Away With Murder”
When Annalise fires everyone, including Bonnie
In the Season 4 premiere, Annalise lets everyone free of their duties working for her–including her sidekick Bonnie (which might end up as not such a great idea). We know by now that Annalise can be unpredictable, but the fact that she’s letting the whole crew go given all the deep dark secrets they know seems out of character for how controlling of them she usually is.
