Madam Secretary & Game of Thrones...I had a long weekend...needed to actually sleep!

THE ANSWER TO FRIDAY'S TRIVIA QUESTION: Cynthia Nixon who played Miranda on Sex and the City played Sunshine in the movie Little Darlings. Little Darlings starred Matt Dillon, Kristy McNichol and Tatum O'Neil. It seems many of you had crushes on Kristy and Matt which is good to know. Great flik for anyone who hasn't seen it.

FIRST FIVES: Mike O'Dea, Bobby Aguilera, Dave DeSocio, Chuck Chiocco & Deb Kapetanakis

Madam Secretary
I'm so glad the writers realize that the viewers aren't dummies and haven't forgotten that Elizabeth has been going through some heavy stuff and had gotten herself a therapist. Nice to know she wasn't "fixed" in a few episodes. Elizabeth's therapist is Marsha Mason, remember her? Apparently she was on The Middle for a few years. I wouldn't know, don't watch that one. This episode was pretty intense, in addition to therapy, Elizabeth had to deal with the Iranian Peace Treaty getting signed, a gay Iranian getting stoned to death at the exact same time, and the President adding Juliette, one of E's BFF's, to the kill list. Jay was exhausted and in desperate need of a spit-up free shirt when BD Wong paid him a visit asking for help to stop the stoning. No go, but Jay was able to get his point across. Unfortunately the guy still died. While this was all going on Juliette was in DC and gave the feds the run around. Apparently it was the gold scarf that hid her so well all this time. For someone who is well trained in this stuff, you'd think she'd get some plastic surgery,  a wig and some glasses, anything other than just a gold scarf. Lame disguise! The fed's took her in and now Elizabeths been assigned to interrogate her. Tough day all around for Elizabeth, but she kept it together, kept her cool, wore normal sleeves, ook her daughter for a driving lesson and remembered to bring froyo home for Henry. If she isn't a supermom, I don't know who is.

Game of Thrones
Arya travelled all that way to finally get to the House of Black & White just to sweep it for days in the dark. Finally some direction, but also in a sense some additional cleaning. This time it was of her identity. She got rid of almost all of her stuff, but not her sword. She hid it in the rocks by the water. Feels like she's the Luke Skywalker or the Daniel-son of GOT, doesn't it? King Tommen lost his virginity and was a changed man...boy. Marjorie is quite the opponent for Cersei, huh? It's already pretty interesting but I have a feeling it's going to get crazy between the two of them especially now that Cersei's met the High Sparrow. Jonathan Pryce. Good news: Baylish and Sansa finally got back to Winterfell. Bad news: Sansa has to marry Ramsey Bolton, the d*ck that killed her brother. Of course Baylish convinced her to do it, but that dude is a FREAK so I'm a bit worried about this situation. (Remember, I haven't read the books). Tyrion and his bald buddy stopped in town for a drink and a whore only to find that the newest trend in whores are girls that look like the Dragon Queen. Tyrion found a girl that looked more like Shea, but since he hasn't gone through any therapy, he just couldn't close the deal and relieved himself another way. Bad idea, Jorah kidnapped him and the credits rolled. Guess we have to wait another week before we see Tyrion and Dani together. Jon Snow was busy taking his new role as Lord of the Nights Watch pretty seriously. He even had to do some decapitation work on his very first day on the job. If that was his first day, can you imagine what's to come? Guess I shouldn't complain about my job ever.


-Come on, admit it, you watched Diane and Bruce on Friday night. I won't judge. I didn't watch until Sunday AM, but I did watch. Even though I'm anti Kardashian, I'm still intrigued by the entire Bruce Jenner thing mainly because the first Olympics I ever really paid attention to was the 1976 Olympics. I was just a kid but Bruce Jenner's amazing decathlon performance was a major moment for me and so many of us. Bruce was THE MAN. Remember? I was riveted but the Diane Sawyer interview and thought it was well done. Of course no word on the new name. Apparently Ryan Seacrest got dibs on the big news over on E! this Summer when the 8 part docuseries premieres and yes...I will admit right now...I will be watching.  

-I'm a bit behind on the 11th Season of Deadliest Catch, I'm sure things are going well for all of my favorite captains especially now that they know that no matter how many Opelio's they catch they'll still get some bonus dough as they just got the good news from Discovery that Season 12 is a go. 

-As you know, I don't have the POP Network thanks to Cablevision, so I didn't watch the  Daytime Emmy's. I probably wouldn't have anyway, since I barely watch any daytime TV, but in case you're interested:
 -2 of the 4 Soaps nominated for Outstanding Drama won (How that happens, I'll never know) : Days of our Lives and  and Y&R. Some other big winners:
