Recap of Episode One
For Ryan Murphy’s popular FX series, Sarah Burgess has written the screenplay. The first episode of the current season, Exiles, released on September 7, does not focus on Lewinsky’s narrative. The plot focuses mainly on Linda Tripp, and occasionally it provides a detour to the story of Paula Jones, who had accused Clinton of sexual assault.
The story takes a plunge five years into the past to 1994 and moves forth to cover up the various events that encircle the entire scandal. The episode ends with the events of April 1996, in which Lewinsky enters her office at the Pentagon and receives a call from then-President Bill Clinton.

Margo Martindale is seen in the role of Lucianne Goldberg. Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are being played by Edie Falco and Clive Owen, respectively.
