Warning: Full spoilers for the Veep: Season 6 finale below.
Though it was only mentioned back toward the top of the season, Selina inevitably choosing to run for president again was a no-brainer. And while the writing may have been on the while, I still commend this season for maintaining her ex-president story the entire time, without half the season feeling like she had one foot back in the game. This year was about her legacy and her fumbling attempts to make her one year as Commander in Chief feel historic and meaningful.
I’ll also commend this season finale, “Groundbreaking,” for pulling the trigger on her new presidential bid and making it feel fresh and fun. Flashbacks were the name of the game here, along with hilarious moments both big and small, as we traveled back six years to Selina putting a halt to her presidential run (the intern running away from Amy was amazing!) and then her first day in office as VP.
