Episode 18 — Unfinished Business
When a longtime outspoken critic of the Equal Rights Amendment passes away and his wife prepares to take over his Congressional seat, Mac sees the opportunity to amend the Constitution and finally pass the ERA. Meanwhile, she prepares to participate in a previously scheduled “Get Out the Vote” event with Templeton, which turns into more of a presidential debate. On the home front, Rod is approached about doing a story on his relationship with Mac — a Presidential marriage — and it turns out Kelly has a past with the writer. Rebecca continues her relationship with her IM buddy, but they’re each shocked at the other’s identity when they meet in person. And the differences between Mac and Dickie’s beliefs become glaringly apparent.
