There’s always a plethora of fires to be put out on each episode of HBO’s comedy Veep. HBO is celebrating the end of season 3 by airing back to back new episodes. Last week we saw the power of Selina’s competition for the Presidential nomination. Her biggest threat is from former baseball manager Joe Thornhill. No matter what Selina and her team throw at Thornhill he manages to survive. In the first episode of tonight’s finale, titled Crate, the team decides that Selina isn’t connecting with the regular American voters.
Selina’s staff try to find a way to make her seem more “folksy”; Jonah tries to find a new job; Selina has an interview with a pretentious journalist.
Now is a good time to talk about the Selina haircut, soon to rival the “Rachel” in popularity. It was a perfect avenue for the rest of the staff to weigh in on the VP’s mistake. Maybe her new uptown haircut will make it hard to connect with blue collar voters. She’ll need that connection in the second episode of the night, titled New Hampshire. Selina and her staff are on the ground for the New Hampshire primary. That could set up a Presidential run for her in season 4.
