While Madam Secretary doesn’t always rip directly from the headlines, they often do stories at least loosely inspired by them. That could be the case here for the upcoming October 28 installment in “Requiem.” Remember when Sarah Huckabee Sanders was forced to leave a restaurant in the midst of a political disagreement? Well, it’s possible that something similar could happen in this episode to Henry and Stevie.
Take a look at the Madam Secretary season 5 episode 4 synopsis below for more details:
“Requiem” – When the remains of U.S. soldiers who served in World War II are uncovered in Southeast Asia, Elizabeth’s hopes of bringing them home quickly fade when a stubborn leader stands in her way. Also, Henry and Stevie find themselves publicly targeted by a restaurant owner who is angry about Elizabeth’s policies, and Alison volunteers for a local congressional campaign, on MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, Oct. 28 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Note that there is no guarantee that this episode is going to play the moment in anywhere near the same fashion, but this is just what it made us think about the moment we first heard about it. We have to think that the writers and CBS imagined that this was going to be the reaction that many viewers have here. We’re not expecting the same exact thing here, but still.
Beyond the Stevie story, it’s nice to see Alice mentioned in a synopsis! That doesn’t really happen all that often and that gives us some hope that she is going to have some sort of notable story. This episode, in general, should prove to be one of the most interesting of the new season in terms of combining fictional political problems and events that echo real life. There’s a lot going on here, but Madam Secretary has navigated that before.
