Review Quotes


On Madam Secretary Season 2 Episode 9, President Dalton has a face to face with President Ostrov and accuses Russia of the cyber attack on Air Force One, but she denies having anything to do with it. President Dalton doesn't believe her, but he isn't able to get help from his allies because they don't know about the attack. Elizabeth suggests she should talk to the United Nations and let them in on what is going on and President Dalton agrees with her.

While getting ready to address the United Nations, Henry starts to have some conflicts about what he knows and tries to tell Elizabeth what he knows, but she refuses to listen. Eventually Henry gets through to her and tells her the information he saw, thanks to Dmitri, and there was no plans for a cyber attack on the United States. Elizabeth decides to look into the matter and doesn't make the speech at the United Nations because there is a possibility that Russia is being framed by someone else. 

As Elizabeth's team does some digging, they find out the President of Ukraine switched his official staff on Air Force One with men who were experts at parachuting. This immediately makes the entire team think the Ukraine President was behind the attack because he wanted to get the United States on his side, and to protect Ukraine, if Russia were to attack. Elizabeth brings this information to President Dalton and they confront the President of Ukraine who admits what he did, but doesn't apologize. He felt he was doing the best for his country and he saw no other way to get the United States to accept him into NATO.

Better get your staff to work on the speech of your life.


The objective is simple, convince the entire world, particularly our allies, that we are justified and willing to go to war to contain Russian aggression.
