This is going to throw a wrench in her announcer plans. Later, Liz and Henry talk. They need to tell the kids in advance.

The next day at work Liz learns from Jay that China has sold a jet to Asia. Unfortunately, they cannot do much right now because they need China to help fight against Myanmar who is treating their own people violently. She calls Ming and gets right to the point, telling him they know about the jet which was sold to a general in Myanmar. She wants to create a tribunal. The team gathers after her video chat to turn on the TV and discover Owen Callister is running for president.

Liz arrives home. She is tired and angry. She doesn’t want to tell the kids tonight but they know something is up and they need to know so they don’t worry. She breaks the news. Jason is annoyed she doesn’t want to comment publicly while Stevie seems to understand.

Henry calls Isabelle to meet after the article of Liz and Conrad’s fake love affair goes public. He wants to know if she heard anything. Isabelle pretends to have never even heard anything even in the past. Henry knows she is lying. Liz told him prior that she and Isabelle used to laugh. He thinks it is her and heads home to tell Liz.

The governor isn’t inline with Owen and his beliefs and wants Liz to join the GOP. Jay and Mike B. Come over so they can talk.

The next day, everyone is acting strangely towards Liz. Liz pulls Nina in after she tells Kat she would rather be transferred then work with the Deputy Chief. Liz asks for more information as to why. Nina shares that he is on a private informal list of men to avoid on the Hill. Nina agrees to show Liz the list if she keeps the names to herself.
