As the saying goes, politics makes for strange bedfellows. Or in the cast of Maggie (Christina Ricci) and Congressman Rawlings (Chris Beetem) on “Pan Am,” bedfellows make for strange politics.

During the Jan. 8 episode of the period drama, the more than opinionated Maggie submitted an anonymous editorial to the Village Voice railing against the representative’s hypocrisy. But after a pleasant lunch with Rawlings, Maggie fell for him. Of course there’s still the lingering issue of that article.

On Sunday’s (Jan. 15) show, Rawlings is none too pleased after reading the piece that calls him out on his double standards. He says, “I don’t appreciate sources with ‘inside knowledge’ conspiring with the enemy,” not realizing the “enemy” is right in front of him. Maggie is now focused on steering him in any direction that doesn’t point toward her.

In other “Pan Am” news, Kate (Kelli Garner) tries to help out a couple of stewardesses mistaken for spies. And Dean (Mike Vogel) is chosen for an important flight, but then is replaced at the last minute. This is certain to make him unhappy.
