TVOM: "The new installment of Scandal begins with a still in the dark Abby waiting to meet Olivia on “their” park bench, holding two cups of coffee. When her BFF fail to show up, the now White House staff member calls Liv, only to be greeted by the answering machine. This propels Abby to pay a house visit and find the red wine stains inside Olivia’s empty apartment and, subsequently, to barge into to the OPA headquarters. Quinn and Huck deflect every question made by Abby and then tell her she is not a gladiator anymore. She is part of the White House; they cannot trust the White House. The whole sequence is heartbreaking."
