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.

This episode started with an explosion and ended with a bang.

Fitz and Olivia are playing a weird game of chicken. Someone's got to blink first.

This felt hollow somehow. I was not happy with this ending, and I want a redo. Most of it was fantastic, but of all their season finales, this ending was certainly the weakest.

Neither half is satisfying on its own, and they make for a baffling whole, culminating in the show's worst-ever season finale.
