Tonight marks the final episode of “Madam Secretary” for the calendar year of 2016, and with that of course comes questions aplenty regarding whether or not we are going to get a chance to see resolution to the Presidential Election storyline that has defined the show for most of the year so far.
So what is coming up beyond this? Well, we’ve got some of the first details below for the next new episode (airing Sunday, January 8) entitled “Gift Horse,” which definitely feels like an applicable title given that the main order of business here revolves around a horse that Elizabeth McCord just so happens to receive as a gift from another country. For those of you who have felt as though the show’s too serious as of late, on paper this sounds like it could be rather funny. As for whether or not that turns out to be the case completely, that remains to be seen.
Synopsis – “When the Mongolian government sends Elizabeth a horse as a gift, she thinks accepting it could upset other Asian countries, but she stirs up more controversy when she considers returning it to Mongolia. Also, Gov. Sam Evans threatens to sue Ohio for putting President Dalton on the election ballot, and Stevie has an interesting first day as Russell’s new intern.”
It’s probably best not to say anything about the Sam Evans storyline for the time being without proper context, but the main thing to remember with this show is that there’s a tendency for politicians to fight even when things do go their way out of principle.
No matter what happens with the election or its aftermath, the most important thing to us is that Elizabeth somehow finds a way to still be involved. Without her, her staff, and the complications of international relations, what would the show be? It certainly wouldn’t be the same!
