"New. Selina Now. "Is Selina Meyer's last motto for the presidential campaign. However, since the seventh and final season of Veep's is premiered on Sunday, the former president and his staff can not overcome their old, dysfunctional patterns. Thank God.
Because Veep suffers when Selina is not in the political arena, right? Continue reading for the highlights of "Iowa".
ANOTHER GO | The episode begins with Selina on a jet to Iowa, where she intends to announce her last run for the White House. Leon asks her to find out what she wants to say about why she wants to be president again, but Selina turns away. In the meantime, Dan and Amy are waiting at the airport, where they organized a rally of Meyer supporters. But when Selina's plane lands, no one is there: as it turns out, she arrived in Cedar Falls, Iowa, when she landed in Cedar Grove Iowa. The failure calls for Selina to undergo an autopsy in the previous campaign to identify problems and vulnerabilities. Selina, of course, is the biggest problem and / or the weakest point, and if that inevitably becomes clear, the former president closes the discussion. "Guys, this will not be a repeat of my last campaign," says Selina to her team, adding that she wants to bring a man named Keith Quinn as campaign manager. (I'm sorry, Ben!) Meanwhile, Buddy Calhoun announces on television that he intends to compete as president. And Marjorie tells her mother-in-law that there are serious problems with the Meyer Fund, and Andrew (of course) is nowhere to be found.
There are several mass shootings taking place elsewhere in the country during the episode; The first takes place when Selina meets the mayor of Lurlene, Iowa, who happens to be a dog. Like a literal dog. (Are we really surprised to find out that Lurlene is the hometown of Richard Splett?) After Madame President stumbled through the usual "Thought and Prayer" program, Madame President returns to her headquarters to join Keith on the first day to meet. Except the guy she thought Keith Quinn is not really Keith Quinn. Instead of blasting the press that the campaign has gotten mixed up again, Selina & Co. keep Keith with him and let him think that he is directing the show. Meanwhile, they are holding secret staff meetings in Ben's office and are planning a plan to announce Selina's attempt in the Oval Office in front of Susan B. Anton's birthplace, where she had announced her first presidential campaign nine years earlier. Veep Premiere Recap Season 7 Episode 1
SIBLING LOVE | Elsewhere in New Hampshire, Jonah's love for his new wife, Beth, happens to be his stepsister. (Her parents were married for a year to a year ago.) When his team – Richard, Bill, and a "chemically castrated" Teddy – find out, they're reluctant to joke that Jonah has given the press another facet of his campaign. So try to stay one step ahead of the story by meeting with Jane McCabe, an interview with CBS This Morning . Little do you know, Jane has also invited Teddy's stepfather / Beth's father Lloyd. And it turns out that Lloyd is not only a really sweet guy, but still loves Teddy's mother Nancy.
A WOMAN FIRST: FIRST WOMAN | At the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony, Selina's people had a catch: their campaign did not pay the staging company nine years ago, and the owner is so crazy that he did not set up the tents and stuff for their big announcement. After Selina chats briefly with the man before handing it over to Gary, the team receives word that another mass shooting in a Phoenix, Ariz., Has killed 27 people. Selina's horror is quickly changing into an opportunity: "Could that work for us?" She asks cautiously, receiving a lot of yes.
It approaches the scramble press that has arrived to condemn the shooting and to offer sympathy to the families of the victims. Realizing that her moment has come, Selina transforms the furious tent-guy's tantrum over "cocky people" against the working class and inserts her into her official announcement: She will compete for the president!
Selina's joy at nailing her big speech is suppressed by Kent's update that Jonah's interview has actually promoted him among white male voters. And then everyone watches a live broadcast as Selina's former affiliate Tom James throws his hat into the president's ring.
MORE BRIEFINGS | Richard works for the campaigns of Jonah and Selina, a situation that is unlikely to last much longer. Mike is now a reporter for "Buzzfeeds Print Edition," which has a hard time reaching his daily mailing quota. And Selina's desire to use grandson Little Richard as nothing more than a campaign angered Catherine, who is suffering from postpartum depression.
