Welcome back to the unpredictable world of Veep. In the end of Season Four, the presidential election came to a screeching halt when Selina Meyer won the state of Virginia, which didn’t settle, but tied the number of electoral votes between herself and O’Brien. But then, all the House races weren’t settled, so this race was far from over. How are things now? Well, not much better. This is the “Morning After.”
If “Story of My Life” is any indication, it’s that if you want something done, do it yourself and own up to what’s yours instead of trying to ignore the problem right in front of you. Bill and Virginia see their problems put on display, but mostly through other people around them.
By episode’s end, characters confront their own insecurities that they long thought had been buried or neglected. Their arcs progressed in a well done, character driven episode.
