Riveting drama, original plot-lines, brilliant delivery
20 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I have tendency to find female lead characters easily annoying when they're pompous or self-righteous but for some reason Olivia Pope doesn't make me seethe inside. She makes me want her to win and makes me wish I could have as much command and authority of my own person as she does. She doesn't irritate, she inspires and that is a significant achievement.

The monologues this show comes up with are insightful, realistic and well delivered. The issues they deal with are varied and interesting from affairs to abuse. The empowerment they give to women and victims is commendable. Hats off to the writers! Olivia's speech in this episode gave me goosebumps.

"Scandal" has the some of the most stunning, shocking cliffhangers among all the shows I've ever seen and these cliffhangers come pretty much every week. Shame season one has only seven episodes.

Moving on to the plot for this particular episode, a dictator's family goes missing and he needs Olivia's help. On the White House side, Cyrus gets Intel on Olivia and her team. It gives the audience their background information in a clever way.
