I'm generally not surprised by anything Cryus does anymore, but this was a pretty shocking move, even for him. Cyrus has always been an unscrupulous character, but the writers took him to a whole new level of evil in this last episode.
So... Daddy and Mommy were in it together? Daddy gets back Command with Fitz's blessings and Mommy got a chance to see her daughter? So glad neither died this season. That wicked couple needs to stick around for -- say -- Season 5 or 6. I hope they get back to fixing other people's problems in Season 4.
Harrison's fate will be determined by Short's ability to control his personal life, IMO.
Edit: I didn't understand how Sally's aid could get away with mussing her up without someone capturing it on video.
If Sally doesn't come back, I'll miss that character. I think she and the RNC Chairman could make life unbearable for bad-wig-wearing Cyrus. I'm also loving don't give a f%&k Mellie. It seems that she will always be the ultimate wild card for this show.

We all suspected that Harrison got shot at the end of last season, but we only heard the shot, didn't see it. So the first ep of this season confirms that Harrison is dead. I had to go back to the Wiki recap of last season's final ep (spoilered below) to review what happened.
With 14 minutes left until the bomb goes off, Fitz has yet to arrive to the church and Cyrus finds himself in a tricky situation. Jake comes to the White House and starts evacuating the funeral just in time before the bomb goes off. Sally, being at the funeral, takes advantage of the situation in order to get elected. Both Olivia and Cyrus tell Fitz he's most likely going to lose the election when Sally raises in the polls. Back at the hospital, Olivia learns that Rowan survived. Charlie gives Quinn a file containing information that will destroy her relationship with Huck. As it turns out, the information was about Huck's family and their whereabouts. Harrison makes a Deal with Adnan to save each other’s life. At the White House, Olivia tells Fitz about Mellie's rape, and he decides to stay with his wife rather than to be with Olivia for the moment. As Fitz gives a speech at a rally, his son Jerry suffers a seizure and later dies. Fitz finds out that Jerry was poisoned and concludes his suspicion on Maya Pope. He hires Rowan to hunt her down and kill her. Olivia finally takes up on her father’s offer to a new life. OPA has different opinions about her leaving, and Jake asks to come with her. Rowan forces Harrison to help him hunting down Maya by showing him that Adnan was murdered. Later, Harrison confronts Rowan about Olivia leaving, but figures out that it was all just a part of his plan. Rowan reveals that it was him who got Jerry and Adnan killed, got Fitz to reinstate B613 and got Olivia out of the country. Tom aims a gun at Harrison when he figures it out, and Rowan later visits Maya, who is trapped in the hole at B613. Fitz wins the presidential election, but is not psyched about it. Huck goes to meet his family. Jake sends David Rosen copies of all the classified B613 files in order for him to bring down the "bad guys" while going on a plane with Olivia.
