Ah, college. A place for fun, a place for knowledge and the best years of your life. You get to meet new people, know where your interests and passions are and party with friends like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve never been to a college party, but from what I have seen in movies and television, it never ends well when morning arrives. Elizabeth accompanies her daughter on a campus tour in this week’s episode of Madam Secretary as Alison begins her search for the perfect post-secondary education institution.
The tour then took a turn for the worst as Alison becomes the center of attention in a bad way as she and her mother are ambushed by groups protesting a Chilean mining operation. The second McCord daughter will also get a glimpse of how difficult her mother’s job is as the latter tries to deal with the protestors. So much for wanting to be a normal college student, eh, Alison? Then again, you don’t exactly live in a normal household when both your parents work for the government.
In the preview clip shown on CBS’s website (apologies in advance to my fellow Canadian viewers, the video will not play in our geographical location), when the protestors learn that the Secretary of State is on campus grounds, they bombard her with questions as to whether or not she will respond to the pleas of the Chilean people. Elizabeth told one of the protestors that the U.S Government will not interfere, but I have a feeling that the Secretary of State will still do something about it in true Madam Secretary fashion.
Meanwhile back in the State Department, Henry and Jane work with the rest of the Murphy Station team as they attempt to track down Jibral Disah’s third wife, Hijriyyah. Will she be a woman who wants to be found or will she disappear before the Murphy Station gets on her trail and use her to lead them to her husband? I wait with as much patience as I can muster until Sunday night when we find out for sure!
