Madam Secretary Recap 1/15/17: Season 3 Episode 12 “The Detour”

Tonight’s episode of Madam Secretary kicks off in Virginia, the FBI is raiding a house in the middle of nowhere – it’s rigged with bombs and there is an explosion, taking down several FBI agents. Rex Mayfield runs out of his house, shooting a gun and screaming about a Prophecy. Eventually, they manage to tackle him and take him in to custody. In her office, Elizabeth is meeting with her team and discussing their upcoming trip to West Africa to establish partnerships with Nigeria and Senegal to get electricity to their villages and help develop their economies.

Henry and Elizabeth both got to do what they do best, with little outside distractions. It was pure bliss. Elizabeth's mission had pretty low stakes, no matter what Daisy thought. Nobody other than the foreign affairs committee and policy wonks were going to care about the success of that trip. Voters just really don't care about wind farms in Nigeria, even if the Chinese snake the project. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/01/madam-secretary-season-3-episode-12-review-the-detour/
