Drama on all levels, shocking end
24 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Scandal never loses its momentum and never lets up on the pace. Conspiracies and issues get bigger and bigger. Characters have two faces and no one knows what will happen next. The end of this episode made my jaw drop literally. I've complimented the cliffhangers on this show before and I'll say it again they might just be the best on television.

This episode deals with a missing college student and the downsides to diplomatic immunity. At the same time Mellie proves that she knows how to play the game of politics. I do pity the President a bit for being involved with two very capable women.
