Rhimes sent out a tweet, clearly displaying a snippet of dialogue between the two leads of each show, Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating — verifying what fans had been speculating and obsessing over since early Wednesday afternoon.

People. It's happening. @petenowalk, you ready for this? #TGITCrossover #HowtoGetAwaywithScandal

Rumors began to swirl when Kerry Washington tweeted this photo, which definitely looks a lot like the she's waiting in the lobby to enter Annalise Keating's classroom. "This spot look familiar?" Washington said to Viola Davis, who was tagged in the caption.

Hey Ms @violadavis ❤️ check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you? https://t.co/JFdiCTmbFs

A few minutes later, Davis tweeted, "guess where I am?!" to Washington from a set that looks uncannily like the Oval Office from Scandal.

Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!

And, like, same.

Wigs won't just be snatched, they'll probably disintegrate from this potential union of television powerhouses.

Ok if a Scandal & How To Get Away With Murder crossover happens my wig might actually shred itself

And naturally, people who are clearly invested in the shows have a lot of demands for the crossover.

THE SCANDAL/HTGAWM CROSSOVER EPISODE SHOULD BE TWO HOURS LONG, KEEP FRANK AWAY FROM OLIVIA BECAUSE GOD KNOWS SHE LO… https://t.co/PP4t9MV8DH

But, like, let's hope we don't all actually perish, overwhelmed by excitement.
