Boss Season 2 Episode Details Revealed

If there’s one television show you’re not watching and should, it’s Boss. The show isn’t widely seen due to airing on premium cable network Starz, but it’s one of the best shows on television — arguably second only to the unstoppable AMC duo Mad Men and Breaking Bad. The DVD of the first season hits shelves on July 24, and it is undoubtedly worth a buy for any television fan.

The series stars Kelsey Grammer as Tom Kane, the mayor of Chicago, who is politically powerful but has compromised his relationships with his wife and daughter to get to where he is. At the beginning of the series, Kane receives the diagnosis that he has a degenerative, incurable mental condition that will slowly physically and mentally debilitate him before ultimately killing him in three to five years. Desperate to remain in power for as long as possible, but also looking to right the wrongs of his past, Kane must grapple with scandals, political machinations, and his own mind.

For those who are up to speed on the series, a set of synopses have been released for Boss’s second season, which is slated to kick off on August 17. The synopses, courtesy of SpoilerTV, reveal that Kane, while rebounding politically from the scandal that rocked his office last season, is still struggling in his interpersonal relationships, as well as with the disease that is slowly destroying his sanity.

In the season premiere, “Louder Than Words,” “a lavish groundbreaking of the modernized O’Hare terminals cements Kane’s legacy; despite his seemingly bright political future, Kane continues to struggle with his disease.”

The second episode of the season, “Through and Through,” sees Kane hire an ambitious newcomer and steals his nemesis’ aide to replace Ezra Stone, who dramatically exited the series in the season one finale.

“Ablution,” the show’s third episode, will see “Kane’s growing infatuation with Mona [lead] him to get swept up in her desire for the redevelopment of a blighted housing project.”

In the fourth episode of the season, intriguingly titled “Redemption,” “Kane eliminates longtime members of his political machine,” while “Meredith and Emma reject Kane’s efforts to reconnect.”

Finally, the fifth episode of the season, “Mania,” will see “Kane’s war against political corruption [threaten] his hold over the city council,” while “worsening mental symptoms leave Kane unable to tell the difference between reality and hallucinations.”

Looks like Boss won’t be pulling any punches during its sophomore year. Likewise, you shouldn’t pull any punches; go ahead, stop depriving yourself of this brilliant series

Boss season 2 will premiere on August 17 with the episode “Louder Than Words” on Starz.
