I had the opposite reaction to this episode. Most of it felt like a chore to get through. I guess I never saw the reason for the big reveal after he was elected, so most of this episode I was thinking "what the hell did you expect" while everything around them crumbled.
I did laugh at Nicki going after that kid - that's so exactly like something she would do. I didn't see that twist coming at all that he was a child of the same sort of marriage.
