Detective: [watching from his car] Looks like she's headed into some kind of medical plaza.
Abby Whelan: [talking to the president in the Oval Office] Lillian Forrester is pregnant, which explains why she hasn't been working out as much in the mornings. And it also explains why she's made three incognito visits to a medical center, which houses, count them, 7 OB/GYN doctors.

Perfect title for great episode
8 April 2016 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Right before the big moment, a disclaimer came on screen advising parental guidance - perfect warning that something special was afoot.

Kudos to Tony Goldwyn taking the director's chair for a vibrant episode. The veep's mean-spirited speech to our anti-heroine Washington was terrific -bulld-up of emotion and vitriol culminating in her bonking him -spectacular! You usually don't get this level of tension and release in a theatrical film, let alone on broadcast TV and it was directed in such a way that gore was minimized (on cable I assume the scene would have gone over the top in pandering to current audiences' desire for explicitness).

Great title -great television via this segment.
