The third season of “Madam Secretary” premiered on CBS Sunday night, and it was certainly a case of good news and bad news for Elizabeth McCord. While she had decided (at first) to move forward with potentially being Vice-President, at the same time we learned that it may not matter since Dalton is having to turn towards a very different strategy for reelection. In the end, she conceded that someone else should run if he is going to win as an Independent.
Now that we’ve gotten through this premiere, we’re apparently going to have a little bit of a break before the action picks up once more. There is no new episode airing on the network in seven days’ time, with the biggest reason for that being that there is an actual Presidential Debate taking place. Therefore, we are going to be seeing this fictional race take a week off. When it comes back on October 16, it will be doing so with an episode entitled “The Linchpin” that gives you a good combination of personal stories and more issues when it comes diplomacy.
Take a look at the synopsis below for a little bit of insight as to the latest international incident, but also what lies ahead for Jason after the hack:
“Algeria on the brink of a civil war, Elizabeth delicately negotiates a regime change, but her plans go awry when Roy Curtis (Dakin Matthews), the trusted U.S. Ambassador to Algeria, dies unexpectedly. Also, Henry fights to save religious antiquities in Algeria when he discovers they are being destroyed by Hizb al-Shahid, and the McCord children get their own security detail after Jason’s computer is hacked, on MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, Oct. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Michael Boatman guest stars as FBI Director Keith Doherty, who helps the McCords investigate the hacking of Jason’s computer.”
