Wondering if an actresses past sins will allow her to have success on a new project even after she’s admitted her mistakes.

Episode 101 of State of Affairs was entertaining and the dynamic between Charleston Tucker and President Constance Payton (Alfre Woodard) makes me want mini-episodes based solely on their relationship. Plus seeing a Black woman President of the United States for me as a Black woman was empowering. Don’t let anyone tell you that diverse representation doesn’t matter, because even at my age I was moved to see this, even if it was fictional character. Also, I look forward to learning more about the rest of the characters (Adam Kaufman as Lucas Newsome, Sheila Vand as Maureen James, Cliff Chamberlain as Kurt Tannen, Tommy Savas as Dashiell Greer, and David Harbour as David Patrick) on State of Affairs.
Tonight on episode 201, “Secret and Lies,”
Charleston (Katherine Heigl) and the team are in a race against the Russians over a stranded Russian submarine holding six months of stolen U.S. secrets — their one advantage is that they have a CIA asset on board. At the same time, the texter persists, sending Charlie a damning picture, while Nick (guest star Chris L. McKenna) forces her to question if Fatah was ever really her asset. Meanwhile, President Payton (Alfre Woodard) appoints a new CIA director, the formidable Ray Navarro (guest star Nestor Carbonell). Also, guest starring Courtney B. Vance, James Remar, and Alon Moni Aboutboul. (via NBC)
