‘The Newsroom’ season 3 spoilers: New details on Jeff Daniels, Olivia Munn, and future stories

While HBO was rather secretive for a long time when it comes to giving things away on “The Newsroom” season 3, some of the latest press releases unveiled by the network make it rather clear that in a variety of different ways, they are now changing course.

The synopses below make up the majority of the episodes that are going to air throughout the month of November on HBO. You can view the one for the November 9 premiere “Boston” over at this link, and the rest below start on November 16 and run on consecutive Sundays:

Episode 3×02, “Run” – “With Rebecca (Marcia Gay Harden) again tasked with defending ACN in a possible lawsuit, Will (Jeff Daniels) tries to protect Neal from the fallout over the DOD leak. Charlie (Sam Waterston) and Leona (Jane Fonda) enter the fray of a hostile-takeover gambit involving Reese’s (Chris Messina) half-siblings, Blair (Kat Dennings) and Randy Lansing (Chris Smith). Sloan (Olivia Munn) fears Don (Thomas Sadoski) may be guilty of cashing in on insider information; Maggie ponders the ethics of eavesdropping; Hallie (Grace Gummer) pays a price for a late-night tweet.”

Episode 3×03, “Main Justice” – “Leona and Reece look to raise cash in order to salvage ACN and thwart Blair and Randy. Will gets a surprise at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, while Charlie trades visions with ACN suitor Lucas Pruit (B.J. Novak). Maggie’s EPA scoop makes it to “News Night.” Sloan and Don try to keep their relationship a secret from a new HR veep.”

Episode 3×04, “Contempt” – “Facing a court subpoena and possible incarceration for contempt, Will stands firm in refusing to reveal the source of the stolen DOD documents. As Charlie’s disdain for Lucas grows, Sloan and Mac scramble to find a more acceptable 11th-hour buyer for ACN. Jim’s relationship with Hallie is put to the test by her new job at Carnivore, a start-up website.”

Clearly, there is a whole lot going on within the course of these final episodes, and much of the relationship drama seems firmly entrenched within workplace actions. While we do figure out through this that Sloan and Don are now officially together, they are still in the process of keeping it quiet. As for the reason why, it’s easy to assume that they don’t want either one of them to face nepotism claims if one helps the other out, intentionally or unintentionally.

Hopefully, HBO keeps up this habit, and releases even more great scoop related to “The Newsroom” in the near future. Stay tuned.
