'Madam Secretary' Season 6 Episode 6: Fans emotional about Elizabeth and Henry McCord's 'healthy relationship' coming to an end
Elizabeth and Henry have always there by each other's side - be it sharing jokes in their pajamas in bed, or comforting each other about the traumas of their past.
This article contains spoilers for season 6 episode 6.
Tonight on Madam Secretary's season 6, episode 6, President Elizabeth McCord and First Gentleman Henry were under public scrutiny once again, as a video of the couple was grossly taken out of context. According to the official synopsis, “A fabricated video makes it look like Elizabeth and Henry are making fun of a foreign dignitary." But as the two struggled to "to convince the dignitary not to pull out of an important international agreement after the video is leaked," what they succeeded at was giving us all the feels as the six-year-old show aired its penultimate episode on CBS.
Always there by each other's side - be it sharing jokes in their pajamas in bed, or comforting each other about the traumas of their past - there hasn't been a single episode where Madam President and her gorgeous husband have failed to be wholesome around each other. And as Henry helped Elizabeth through this new crisis once again, all it took was a post from Tea Leoni - who plays Elizabeth - to remind fans that this is the last time they will get to see the McCords, before they ride off to sunset on next week's series finale.
"I’ll miss this," shared a fan on Twitter, "The healthy relationship of a political, ethical, and moral couple. The fashionable Max Mara coat, and power dressing. An aspirational way to do politics. Here’s to the last five years, and the one we have left!" Another one resonated with the same sentiments, sharing: "Will miss you both so bad. thank you so much for every minute, every deep thought, every bright smile and thank you for being a Light."
Speaking for the rest of the fandom in unison, a third fan wrote on Twitter: "I want to thank you for the beautiful example of a married couple that you have set for all of us. I speak for most of your fans when I say that it would help us deal with the ending of our favorite show and favorite couple if we were to still see you."
But the best idea came from a fourth fan who had certain ways to keep this emblem of pure romance alive. "What about making a film after you all you who did main characters, finish your current obligations? The kind of Downton Abby, but much better, let's say during Elizabeth second mandate, Stevie as mom, Jay and Annalise, etc we'll love it!" Let's hope it happens!
'Madam Secretary' season 6 airs on Sundays at 10pm only on CBS.
