Veep 2.04 Sneak Peek: Has Kent Sabotaged Selina?

veep hboSelina’s first time in a situation room ended up being a mixed bag, as the hostages were extracted from Uzbekistan and she was present to watch the historical moment, albeit via satellite. However, one of their men lost a leg along the way and the Veep can’t seem to get that off of her mind, the tragedies of war and combat not becoming real until she was hit with the news at the end of last week’s episode. While Selina wants to gain more power in Washington and achieve her political dreams to show those who doubted her that they were wrong, she might come to realize that having a seat at the table means she’ll witness horrors she was previously shielded from. Is she ready to assume that type of responsibility?

On the next episode of Veep, Selina won’t have time to fret about the injured soldier, since what bit of glory she could have gained from her participation in the war room has been diminished by a poor photo choice. The photo that Amy ended up selecting isn’t the one that was released to the media; that photo finds Selina checking her phone and looking like she was tweeting while the soldier was losing his leg. There’s no point in trying to move up the Washington ladder when situations like this make her look worse than if she wasn’t involved in the first place, undoing whatever she could have gained from her participation. When she confronts Kent as to the reasoning behind the photo choice, it turns out that POTUS looked the best in the one they chose, a decision that in turn makes her lost as bad as possible.

Even though the Veep has zeroed in on Kent being the main obstacle to her political ascension, could POTUS not be ready to have a powerful VP just yet? Is he looking to placate Selina through a minor bump in power without actually taking her reputation and wishes into consideration?

Elsewhere on Veep, Mike regrets bonding with Kent over their love for sailing when the strategist has a new project in the works, while Jonah has an executive parking space, Selina has lunch with Gary’s girlfriend, and Dan and Mike are tasked with writing a comedic song for the Vic Allen dinner.

Veep airs Sundays at 10:00 on HBO. The show has already been renewed for a third season, set to premiere in 2014.
