Another impressive hour. This episode deftly balanced a number of subplots efficiently and compellingly. I was most impressed by the fantastic reveal of the First Lady actually knowing about Olivia and the President. It’s a wonderful little twist that intriguingly complicates things. Moreover, the final pregnancy reveal while somewhat predictable, will undoubtedly escalate things even more. I’m definitely hooked on the Olivia Pope train now.
If Shonda & company can keep up this quality then Scandal surely deserves a second season because the number of awesome stories they could tell is limitless.
