Scandal, Season 3, Episode 9, “Yolo”

Written by Chris Van Dusen

Directed by Oliver Bokelberg

Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on ABC

On this week’s Scandal, Mama Pope’s escape from Rowan ignites a war between B613 and Pope & Associates, Huck tortures Quinn, and Cyrus’s marriage begins to implode.

Let’s be honest here, Scandal‘s never delivered a bad finale, midseason or otherwise. The show’s regular episodes generally pack the number of shocking storylines others save for their finales, so it’s always exciting to see what Scandal whips out for finale season. And oh, does “Yolo” deliver (and it’s only part one of a two-part finale!)

First, opening the episode with Huck torturing Quinn is sheer brilliance. The scene is everything Scandal does best–namely, tense and horrific character drama. No music accompanies the scene–just Quinn’s heavy, panicked breathing–heightening the tension to an unbearably traumatizing level. »
