Scandal - The Complete Fourth Season

Scandal's Fourth Season begins with Olivia (Kerry Washington) being pulled back from island paradise into the political intrigue of Washington D.C. and ends with her quest to destroy B613 and see her father (Joe Morton) behind bars. In-between Abby (Darby Stanchfield) will grow into her role as the White House Press Secretary, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) will reconnect with his family, Mellie (Bellamy Young) will begin her own political career, Maya (Khandi Alexander) will wreak havoc, the Vice President (Jon Tenney) will attempt a coup, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) will fight for re-election, and Olivia will spend several episodes held for ransom halfway around the world.

For those enjoying the series' longer arcs the season delivers. For those of us preferring to see Olivia and company in their roles as fixers we're mostly out of luck as broader storylines continue to derail Olivia & Associates from making an honest living. The season certainly has its share of memorable moments, such as the return of a familiar face, but I wouldn't rank it as my favorite.

The five-disc set collects all 22 episodes and featurettes outtakes, extended episodes, and a single featurette featuring the show's star.
