A politician’s life is never dull and the closer you are to the top, the more complicated, unavoidable dirty drama there is, as US Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni, right) learns once again tonight. As she prepares for the arrival of Iranian President Shiraz to sign a nuclear treaty, she uncovers a top secret plot to assassinate him on United States soil led by her former friend, Juliet (Nilaja Sun). Elizabeth must not only deal with the murder plot, but she also has human rights activists protesting due to Iran’s plans to stone a gay citizen to death. It’s hard work being US Secretary of State, that’s for sure.
