‘The Newsroom’ Season 2 Spoilers: First Episode Descriptions Reveal Death Ahead?

The Newsroom Season 2 Spoilers Synopsis

We’re still a few weeks away from HBO’s season 2 premiere of Aaron Sorkin drama ‘The Newsroom,’ but the most recent trailer has begun to shed light on the new year for the hotly-debated journalism series. The first three episode descriptions following the July 14 premiere for ‘The Newsroom’ season 2 have it, so who gets in the most trouble with the inaugural hours?

It seems the return of ‘The Newsroom’ from the desert will prove somewhat less than pleasant in the July 14 premiere, as Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels)’s Tea Party comments from the first season have come back to haunt both him and the News Night staff. According to the first three episode descriptions from HBO, Will finds himself dealing with a formal investigation, while the rest of the staff experiences new opportunities and Neal (Dev Patel) chronicles the beginning of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement:

Episode 2.01 – “First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All the Lawyers”

Will and the staff are questioned by a lawyer; an on-air remark gets Will pulled from Sept. 11 anniversary coverage; Jim volunteers to cover for a reporter on the Romney campaign; Neal investigates the beginnings of Occupy Wall Street.

Episode 2.02 – “The Genoa Tip”

A tip on a story that will cripple the network begins to become more real; MacKenzie and Sloan continue to push Will; Don urges Will to advocate for Troy Davis; Maggie gets an assignment that she has been begging for; Neal is arrested on Wall Street.

Episode 2.03 – “Willie Pete”

Will tells Nina Howard the truth; a new witness to the Genoa story emerges; Jim tries to get his questions answered.

The second season features appearances by ‘Justified‘ star Patton Oswalt as the fictional networks new vice president of human resources, Marcia Gay Harden as litigator Rebecca Halliday and Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer as a reporter embedded within the Mitt Romney campaign, to which Jim has since relocated. We know that much of season 2 will focus on the 2012 elections, but Sorkin added events such as Trayvon Martin, the Affordable Care Act, drones, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Muammar Gaddafi.
