As part of her Middle East peace-talks tour, President Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) makes an historic trip to Iran, where an American reporter is being detained. In D.C., Dan (Reid Scott) is wooed by lobbyist Sidney Purcell (Peter Grosz), while VP Doyle (Phil Reeves) stands in for the president at a Rainbow Jersey event with a gay NBA star. Meanwhile, Kent's (Gary Cole) polling and Jonah's (Timothy Simons) big mouth may cause trouble for Selina.
