Veep: Spoilers for May Episodes

VeepVice President Selina Meyer may be in a little over her head. Once a major contender for the presidency, only to be brought down by a poor hat choice, Meyer has been left with a whole lot of grunt work. Instead of enacting real change and being the leader of the free world, she’s trying to get her (relatively minor) pet projects through the D.C. wringer and onto the Senate floor for debate. And for some reason, the President still hasn’t called her, despite using her as a fill-in speaker at a recent fundraiser. It’s enough to overwhelm even the toughest of politicos, but judging by the descriptions of the next batch of episodes, her lack of political pull may be the least of her troubles.

Below are the initial air dates, episode names, episode descriptions, and repeat dates for the episodes three through six of Veep.

SUNDAY, MAY 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT)
“Catherine”
Faced with a trumped-up story of a rift between the Veep and the First Lady, Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) quells accusations that everything is about her even though it is. The Veep’s office goes into spin control about the appointment of an ‘oil guy’to the Clean Jobs taskforce. Gary (Tony Hale) selects candidates for the VP dog, though Selina’s daughter Catherine (Sarah Sutherland), who is visiting from college, gets final say.
