Being addicted to 'Law&Order' and the 'CI' variant, one occasionally finds that fiction predicts facts. The tag line, 'ripped from the headlines' becomes, 'ripped from the script'. Today, and the last few days really, we find The Manchurian President living the script.
There's the 'L&O' episode, 'Mega' which tells the tale of a couple of high end grifters who invent a religion/self-improvement scam. They've gotten really rich siphoning off the marks' assets. We get into the tale when one of the marks ends up dead. In the end, he gets convicted of the murder, but McCoy and Carmichael finally see that he's, likely, been set up by the wife.
McCoy and Carmichael close the episode by confronting her. This is what she said:
There was never enough, enough power, money, attention, women, enough control.
[He] would have to sit very quietly for a very, very long time, and know that now I had it all. I wanted him to know that, for him, there wasn't going to be any more.
The Manchurian President, meet Nancy.
