Madam Secretary Re-cap 213

 

Henry McCord loses his father but gains a very expensive coat in this week's Madam Secretary episode.

Henry McCord loses his father but gains a very expensive coat in this week’s Madam Secretary episode.

It’s the Satellite Sisters weekly re-cap of Madam Secretary. This week’s we break down the episode entitled “Invasive Species” about the death of Henry McCord’s father and the family dynamics that explode when the MSec clan heads to Pittsburgh for the Old man’s funeral. Not exactly putting the F-U-N back in Funeral. This episode takes us away from Global Politics an plunks us down right in the middle of family politics. Kate Brton guest stars as Henry’s older, bossier sister who has so many axes to grind, it’s hard to keep track. But Kate Burton is the Queen of the Embittered and she shines as the Martyr Sister.

Madam Secretary spends most of the episode in the kitchen, trying to wash dishes and stay out of the fray. But she does sports some casual wear that Julie enjoyed very much. Props to the actors and writers for this tight, self-contained episode about family, death and the secrets that bind.

Want more Madam Secretary Re-Caps? Check out the show below where we talk to show creator Barbara Hall and EP Lori McCreary.
