Madam Secretary: The Detour (CBS 15 Jan 2017, Tonya Pinkins)

Madam Secretary The Detour

In The Detour Tonya Pinkins returns to guest star as Susan Thompson, Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of African Affairs

When Elizabeth and her staff fly to Africa to offer development aid to the continent, they are caught by surprise when the Chinese arrive there first, ready to outmaneuver the U.S. with competing offers of aid.

Also, when turbulence on their plane ride to Africa leaves Daisy unnerved, she and Susan Thompson (Tonya Pinkins) go on a welcome tour of Africa, admiring the beauty of the continent. And, the FBI asks Henry to help investigate a Christian cult member who may have helped build the bomb used in the Illinois coffee shop attack.
