In the fifth episode of this season of Veep, “Helsinki,” things are beginning to get serious for the Vice President, as a Benghazi-like controversy is heating up in the White House. Those hostages that the President saved a couple of weeks ago? Turns out, one of them was a spy, knowledge that the POTUS kept from Congress (and the Vice President). Of course, it’s falling on Vice President Meyers to minimize the blowback, and she was in Finland this week, playing the Eye of Sauron, trying to steer the attention away from the President and on to her. What better way to accomplish that than to have her “t*t raped” by the husband of Finland’s prime minister, played by the always excellent Dave Foley. Oh, and there was a brilliant Game of Thrones reference in this week’s episode, to boot.
Here’s the 20 meaniest, funniest, and most vicious lines from this week’s episode.
