Scandal Season 4, Episode 4: 4 Reasons to Watch Tonight
Some shows you can DVR. Scandal is not one of those shows — and that goes triple for tonight's episode, Season 4, Episode 4: "Like Father, Like Daughter." You're going to want to be firmly planted on your couch, popcorn in your lap, and WTF face ready to go at 9 p.m. tonight, October 16.
Why is missing out on watching tonight's episode live not an option? Here are the top four reasons you have to tune in live.
1. It's the reunion you've been waiting for.
Whether you ship Olivia and Fitz like burning or wish she'd ditch him for good, you've probably been dying to see their first scene together after Olivia ran away from life for two months. Well, tonight that wait is over, and the preview for the episode promises a juicy face-off when Liv returns to the White House to help fix a crisis. Expect Twitter to explode as soon as Fitz lays eyes on the woman he loves.

3. Mellie's going to freak.
Mellie has been the MVP so far this season, and based on the preview and the first sneak peek here, her greatness isn't going anywhere. This is a woman with nothing left to lose, and we're almost more excited to see her reaction to Liv's return that Fitz's. Plus, it looks like her daughter is in some kind of trouble, and this Mama Bear won't take that well. Unhappy Mellie makes for fantastic TV.
4. Papa Pope makes a move.
The drama isn't just at the White House this week. According to the official synopsis, "Rowan calls on an old friend to do his dirty work" this week. We already have chills wondering what that "dirty work" might be, and we have a feeling it will be an OMG moment you'll have to see to believe.
