Critic Reviews for Scandal: Season 4

This was an excellent start to the season. We've seen Olivia estranged from Fitz before, but this time her isolation from Abby, Quinn and Huck will be interesting to see play out.

Well THAT was certainly a way to wake up. I'm not sure what nightmare Olivia was screaming from because DAYUM. I wonder what it was like for Kerry to film that scene!

Going down that rabbit hole again? Olivia Pope, you've lost your damn mind.

Scandal is back, and full of drama from its first frame onward (one would not expect anything less).

Olivia and Cyrus, at least, will always be tied together. In the twisted world of Scandal, a relationship like that counts for a lot.

In an episode full of bold moves, this is the boldest, and one that augurs the promising continuation of Scandal's season four rally.
