This was a brilliantly crafted episode that really believably saw Olivia flying over the edge after all she'd been through & then being completely denigrated by Andrew. Washington was at her best.

The relationship between Olivia and her father was as dynamic and brilliant as ever. Seeing how the dynamic had changed in those secrets meeting was really nice for all those characters & how all those relationships had changed was really great. It was great to see how the landscape of Olivia & Abby's relationship had changed and to feel that electricity between them. I loved the final exchange of the episode between them.
