Andrew Nichols's Stroke was one of the most shocking events from Season Four of Scandal.


After Andrew Nichols kidnapped Olivia Pope, he refused to resign, so Elizabeth North told Huck to get rid of him.

Andrew refuses to resignEdit

Cyrus Beene tells Andrew he needs to resign; Cyrus had already written a resignation letter for him but Andrew refuses to sign the letter of resignation. In return he threatens to take down the president and threatens Mellie by saying that he will tell the American people what she is really like. "Gladiators Don’t Run"

Andrew's "stroke"Edit

Mellie tells Elizabeth that Andrew is out of control and he needs to be shut down. Elizabeth goes to the only person she knows that can take care of him, Huck. She tells him to kill him but he refuses because he says he "doesn't do that anymore", instead he injects Andrew in his back with causes him to have a stroke. The last time we see him is when Mellie goes to see him in Hospital. "No More Blood"
