(Spoiler alert: Please do not continue reading unless you watched the Thursday episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.”)

ABC’s three Shonda Rhimes-produced dramas delivered shocking midseason finales Thursday night that sent fans into a tizzy on social media. For viewers, it was their last chance until 2016 for fresh action from “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.”

On “Grey’s Anatomy,” fans got what appeared to be an explanation for why Owen hates Nathan — one that revealed a history (an apparently unhappy one) between Owen’s sister and Riggs. But the exact nature of the relationship was left undefined — which didn’t keep fans from speculating and others from griping about the lack of clarity.

“Scandal,” meanwhile shocked with a a killing (perpetrated by Jake) and what appeared to be Fitz and Olivia breaking up.

Finally, on “How to Get Away With Murder,” the mystery that had been hanging over the show since the Season 2 premiere was taken up a notch as viewers discovered who shot Viola Davis‘ Annalise Keating.

But Besides shock, sadness that the three shows won’t be returning until February 2016 ruled the Twitterverse.
