(The Root) — Shonda Rhimes did it again. She nearly killed Twitter with the Scandal season finale last night. Scandal hashtags (such as #ScandalABC, #AskScandal, and #Gladiators to name a few) were trending all day on both Twitter and The Chatterati. Twitter woke up Thursday morning ready to talk about the show, and per usual, folks delivered dramatic, hilarious commentary.

Check out some of the best Scandal tweets below, then join the rest of the Internet in trying to recover from the episode. We did our best to avoid including any spoilers, for anyone who missed it.

OMG THE ENTIRE ROOM IS IN TEARS AND SCREAMING. DEAD. #scandal
