(NEW YORK) -- The season finale of ABC's Scandal airs Thursday night, and one of its stars says it will be "cataclysmic."
ABC hasn't revealed much about the episode: we do know it's set during Election Day, with President Fitzgerald Grant facing off against his vice president, who murdered her husband.
Jeff Perry, who plays the president's chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, offers this hint to ABC News Radio: "We're going to be tremendously surprised as to how the re-election effort turns. I can't say who's going to win, but the final twists and turns are cataclysmic."
Perry admits there is always a possibility that series creator Shonda Rhimes could kill off his character at some point during the show's run.
He says, "I keep some little tiny part of my heart ready for, 'Oh wow, I never thought that bullet was for me. OK. This has been amazing.' And then on another level, you know, 99 percent of me goes, 'No, Shonda loves Cyrus. I think she just really loves him. I think I'm safe. No, it's going to be OK.'"
The season finale of Scandal airs on ABC at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Later Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel Live will feature an on-set interview with Rhimes, as well as appearances from cast members.
