Review: 'Veep' Season 4 Episode 4 'Tehran' Makes the Middle East Merry

1 hour ago

Last Week's Review: 'Veep' Season 4 Episode 3, 'Data,' Cans a White House Staffer Immediate Reaction:Ben and Amy owned this week, which is somewhat ironic because they're at the opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to their respective mental states. Ben, who "was up all night belly-dancing," took too many Ambien and struggled to care about almost anything that happened during the staff's time on Air Force One. Meanwhile, back at home, Amy lost her mind because she was so far out of the loop.

Meanwhile in Meereen, Dany got some insight into her brother Rhaeger, Jaime and Bronn made it to Dorne and Jon Snow still knows nothing.  In King's Landing, Cersei has managed to chop Tommen's small counsil down to a select few, electing a new Master of Coin and Master of Whispers, and making the Jesus-like High Sparrow the new High Septon. She then reinstates the Faith Militant, the army of the Faith of the Seven which was disbanded during the Targaryen rule. But her reasoning for the renewed enforcement sounds ignorantly un-ironic.
