Review Quotes


On Madam Secretary Season 2 Episode 20, Henry was conflicted with his feelings about what happened to Dmitri. His guilt caused him to go to Oliver to help track down Dmitri's sister Talia to see how she was doing. Jane gets wind about Henry trying to track down Talia and tells him he needs to let go of his guilt. Henry tries to reason with her about not being able to protect Dmitri so he wants to try to protect Talia. Unfortunately, Jane informs Henry that Talia was arrested when she got to Russia because she demanded to get Dmitri's body back so she could properly bury him. The Russian government refused to give her the body and Talia threatened to go public with what the Russian government was doing. They felt the only thing they could do was arrest Talia to keep her quiet. 

Henry tries to hire a lawyer for Talia, but she refuses his help. At the end of his rope, Henry tries to get the public aware of what is happening to Talia through Amnesty International, but Daisy contacts Elizabeth before the press release goes out which names Henry McCord as the person behind the information. Henry and Elizabeth fight over what to do because Elizabeth had just started negotiations with Russia to try to get them to help bring down Jibral Disah. Elizabeth tries to convince Henry she can't turn her back on billions of people to save the life of one person. Henry eventually relents and the talks with Russia proceed with them agreeing to help the United States with taking down Disah.

Madam Secretary Season 2 Episode 20 Quotes

The terrorist group Hizb al-Shahid has only been in existence for a short time, but has already perpetrated countless acts of violence across the globe including setting off a dirty bomb in Virginia. My family was at ground zero during the attack and because of that I wondered if I was the right person to stand here today and ask you for your help. Is it too personal? And then I realized, yes, it is personal to me, and to every single one of us. Because the principal at the core of the United Nations is that all people, regardless of race, color, or creed, deserve to live lives of peace, free from the tyranny of sudden violence.
