At the end of Veep’s third season, Selina Meyer’s life went through a major change when she became, not through the will of the people, the President of the United States. Fast-forward two seasons and that political life is on the verge of coming to a close. Can Selina and her team salvage anything when the odds are stacked against them? Let’s see. This is “Inauguration.”
And so, we gather here to join President Selina Meyer and company as they experience a tragic loss that is sure to shake things up and lead to some moments of reflection, grief, and eventual acceptance.
Oh, and Selina’s mother is in the hospital and at death’s door. “Mother,” for my money, might be one of the darker episodes of Veep that shows what Selina Meyer truly values most in life and what she doesn’t, but probably should.
