As you prepare to see The Regime season 1 episode 3 on HBO next week, do you want to get a better sense of what’s coming? Well, let’s just say that “The Heroes’ Banquet” could prove to be a great chance to see more of how things are shifting for Elena … but also how she could be on a downward spiral.

From what we’ve seen so far on the show, we’re seeing Kate Winslet and the rest of the cast take part in some political absurdism. Is Elena going to become some sort of authoritarian leader? They have certainly created an avenue for her to go that way, but in general, it seems like she is struggling to figure who she wants to be as either a person or a leader. Given that this is not a super-long series, we don’t get the sense that this is going to change at any point in the near future.

Below, you can take a look at the full The Regime season 1 episode 3 synopsis with more insight as to what lies ahead:

After sending Zubak to take her place at a cabinet meeting, Elena fields warnings about her new land reform policies and America’s growing indifference following Sen. Holt’s visit. Later, after throwing a birthday party for her deceased father, Elena orders a controversial military operation…and sends Zubak to the front lines.

By the end of this episode, can you believe that we’ll be at the halfway point of the season? If Elena is ordering a military operation, it does certainly raise the possibility that her regime could be no more by the end of the season. This does at least feel like the sort of show that could hold nothing back and take these sort of creative risks. Will all of them work? That’s not something we can really figure out right now, but we are excited to find out.
