There are two types of conflict within the world of Madam Secretary: Irrational conflict (the kind you often see on social media these days) and then rational conflict. Somewhere in the midst of our fractured society we’ve forgotten about the middle ground; we’ve decided that it’s impossible that people from different backgrounds can understand another’s point of view on any subject.
Next week, Madam Secretary season 4 episode 6 is going to be doing its best in order to emphasize the latter sort of conflict with their episode “Loophole.” There will be a divide between Henry, Elizabeth, and President Dalton, but as this episode goes along they will do their part to simmer things down using something that is almost unheard of these days: Compromise. Sure, it may be strange for some to understand that this option still exists, but there was actually an era where people chose to have conversations with one another as a means to try and solve some of their differences. It’s such a strange, novel ideal, but it can work! We do think that it will for these three given that we are dealing with characters who harbor a good amount of mutual respect for each other.
Below, the Madam Secretary season 4 episode 6 synopsis CarterMatt has for you offers up a few more assorted details all about what is coming up:
“Loophole” – Henry disagrees with the President and Elizabeth when they refuse to negotiate with terrorists for the release of an American CIA agent who was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Also, Elizabeth tries to be supportive of Stevie who is going through a difficult time, on MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, Nov. 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
This episode continues the trend of what you’ve come to enjoy and appreciate about this show. You’ve got the case with great international importance coupled with something more personal for Elizabeth and Stevie in the wake of the latter’s breakup with Jareth. We’ve come around on some of the more personal side-plots for Elizabeth over the years. While we at one point did not consider them to be especially worthwhile, we’re way more invested in these characters now. Kudos to the producers of Madam Secretary for taking their time and figuring out ways to bring us into some of these characters’ worlds.
