Inaugural Week on Madam Secretary

Satellite Sisters Talk TV

Fictional Inaugural Week on TV! Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters recap the CBS drama Madam Secretary episode 311 called Gift Horse. This episode was written by show creator Barbara Hall and was called Gift Horse but could have been called Kitchen Sink because we got it all. A veritable potpourri for our fictional Secretary of State and the rest of the Dalton administration. A stand-out show for Blake the Assistant who was tasked with the job of returning the aforementioned Gift Horse. He was tested emotionally, organizationally and sartorially.

Hi, Blake... can you get rid of a horse for me? Thanks. I gotta go to a ball.
