Tonight on “Madam Secretary,” the CBS show did the fairly predictable thing in resolving their big cliffhanger, killing off the Maria Ostrov character at a time when she was starting to really become more important to the narrative. Don’t you love curveballs? Well, the good news for Elizabeth McCord and President Dalton was that neither one of them was hurt as a result of what transpired, and they are now able to continue going about their work.
As for what precisely their work entails, that is something that we’re going to be getting more into next week with “The Middle Way,” which is airing at a special time in 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. The synopsis below gives you a sense as to what is coming up next:
“Elizabeth goes to Myanmar to sign a Pacific Rim trade agreement which will modernize their power grid and benefit several of its trading partners, but she is met with resistance by the country’s American ambassador who has immersed himself into the local culture. Also, Nadine attempts to mend her relationship with her estranged son.”
So are we really done with Russia? While we’re not entirely sure we are, some of the new leadership seems somewhat more accommodating, and as a result of that we could see the show try to branch out and touch on a variety of different issues now. This should be compelling, and overall it will make for a pretty fantastic hour of TV. We’ll have some more scoop on this episode in the future; stay tuned.
