We’re about halfway through the season 2 of The Newsroom and we’re getting more and more into the storylines which led our favorite characters to what we know to be a disaster. But first, this episode, centered on just one night during one of the News Night show, focusing on several storylines: Will, Maggie, Sloan and Don…and Genoa (sounds like it becomes a character).
Newsroom is just reaching its fourth episode but we, as viewers, are already going deep into how did the channel and our favorite news team ended with a lawsuit against them. The main aspect of this episode was, without any doubt, Maggie’s story in Uganda. At first I thought it would be full of blood, gun shots, horror…well the usual stuff you see in movies and shows when dealing with African crisis but instead of this…we got a great story!
The Newsroom continues next week with its 4th episode “Unintended Consequences” and will go deeper on what happened to Maggie in Africa.
Maggie attempts to persuade Rebecca that her trip to Africa with Gary didn’t have any lasting effects. Meanwhile, Will’s lousy on-air interview with an Occupy Wall Street protester hinders Neal and Jerry’s future access; and Jim helps Hallie land an important interview, but gets an earful from Mac in the process.
The Newsroom will be back next week with its 3rd episode. It sounds the main stories of this first part of the new season are: Genoa, Romney Campaign and Will’s changes.
Here is the preview promo for next week’s new episode of The Newsroom: “Willie Pete.”
If last’s week episode focused on the aftermath of the season 1, the episode 2 shows us the beginning of all the stories which are going to rock our characters. We learn more about why Maggie went to Uganda & why it turned wrong for her, discover Neal’s implication in covering Occupy Wall Street and the most important: the Genoa operation.
