Showrunner Shonda Rhimes posted most of the photos along with some sweet tributes to the show, its history and its growth over those seven seasons.

And after the show actually wrapped, Rhimes shared a touching and emotional tribute to the show and everyone who worked on it.

"And that’s a wrap on #scandal. A lot of tears. A lot of love. Forever grateful for every second," she 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."

Rhimes wasn't the only one who was emotional at the end of the show. Stars Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes also posted their own tributes.

Then this happened. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA #Scandal
