Iran’s continued nuclear activities has led to a big problem for the United States and the rest of the world on MADAM SECRETARY.
In this week’s episode (which continues from last week’s build-up), the U.N. Security Council convenes to deal with the issue. As the U.S. tries to build a coalition and the group considers reinstating sanctions against Iran for its suspected nuclear activities, Elizabeth must deal with Israel. With Iran prepping a nuclear bomb, Israel is determined to take matters into its own hands and threatens military actions against the Iranians in order to protect itself.
