Who runs the world? To let ABC tell it, it's the women at the top of Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder.

The network announced Wednesday that powerhouse women Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating will meet in a crossover episode. This season is the seventh and last one for Scandal and the fourth for How to Get Away With Murder.

The shows exist in a universe called Shondaland, created by Shonda Rhimes, on a planet called #TGIT. 

The primaries had a little fun with it on social media, with stars Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Viola Davis (HTGAWM) posting photos from the other's set. Rhimes tweeted out a page from a script with the characters meet-cute.

Reports have the crossover episode airing in the spring. Tony Goldwyn, who plays the president on Scandal, is set to direct.
