It's hard to believe that after seven entertaining, unpredictable, fast-paced seasons, Scandal is coming to an end. And while it's tough for viewers to say goodbye to the inimitable Olivia Pope, the cast and crew are having an even harder time letting go.

In a series of emotional tweets, Shonda Rhimes paid tribute to the end of her show. Firstly, Rhimes shared a shot of her team on the set, watching the penultimate scene being filmed:

If that didn't make you begin to weep quietly, then Rhimes' next tweet will. Sharing a photo of the White House set, Scandal's creator wrote, "Could not be prouder. Here is a shot of the Truman Balcony created by our amazing production crew. Thank you to every single person in our #scandalfam who helped bring this show to life."
