There are a few more months left for "Madam Secretary" to be aired and while fans eagerly wait to know what holds in store for Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni), spoilers for Season 3 of the political drama suggest that the plot in the upcoming instalment will be tenuous and Bess' relationship with Henry (Tim Daly) will be coloured with strife.

Season 3 of the CBS TV series will finally reveal if Bess will accept President Dalton's (Keith Carradine) ticket as running mate and it has been rumoured that she just might. After all, it seems like the most logical way the plot could progress. Bess has been a strong public servant as Secretary of State and a promotion in the ranks could empower her.

However, Bess and her husband Henry might not share the best marriage when Season 3 of "Madam Secretary" is telecast. The power couple, which has always managed to make up after each fight, will struggle to maintain normalcy in their relationship. Bess and Henry's rather conflicted marriage has always hinted at a major blowout and reports suggest that the two could have a falling out in Season 3.

The only way their marriage could be saved is through their son Jason (Evan Roe). According to Parent Herald, Season 3 of "Madam Secretary" will focus on the youngest of the McCords, who will face a major crisis. Previously, Henry's near death experience brought the entire family together and this could take place a second time.

If the Season 3 plot does indeed take this turn, it could be a sweet and fulfilling moment for fans as they rarely see the show stress on the importance of family.

"Madam Secretary" Season 3 is currently being filmed and the latest news regarding the cast suggests that Morgan Freeman will reprise his role as Chief Justice Wilbourne and will also direct the premiere episode. He will be joined by Jane Pauley, who will interview Bess again, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"Madam Secretary" Season 3 is aired on Thursday, October 20 on CBS.
