ABC’s ‘Scandal’ season 4, episode 10 spoilers: Kerry Washington, ‘Run,’ and major stakes

Take a look -You’ve been waiting for quite a long time to get some of the first details on the winter premiere of “Scandal,” and we come today bearing some wonderful news: The wait is over! ABC this week started to unveil some of the first official details for the January 29 episode “Run,” and it looks like this is going to be a huge one for Olivia Pope and for Kerry Washington to play.

The first thing worth noting is that you are going to get answers to many of your burning questions. The second thing worth noting? That creator Shonda Rhimes specifically wrote this episode. Given how busy she is working on a variety of different shows, you can typically assume that any episode that she personally writes herself is a pretty big deal.

Now that we’ve said all of this, take a look at the official synopsis:

“The winter premiere picks up right where the finale left off, this time from Olivia’s point of view. Exactly what happened when Jake went to the bedroom? Who took Olivia and where did she go? The fight of Olivia’s life will begin.”

We don’t really look at this episode as one where the main source of tension is whether or not Olivia is going to survive. Given that she is the star of the show, we’d assume that this is a given. Instead, wonder this: What will she have to give up in order to make it through this alive? Nothing in this world is a cakewalk, and it won’t be easy for her to figure out if an escape is even possible.
