Best episode of all 7 seasons
13 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I will binge watch all 7 seasons to get to this ONE episode. The build up is buried in the 2 seasons before hand, and the tone of this episode carries for the duration of the Bartlet presidency. The sexual tension between Josh and Donna is at his highest point in this episode (although resolved later), and Prez Bartlet is being challenged on several fronts. Between the new story line of his tension with Leo, his dear friend Gen. Fitzwallace being killed, and wanting to bring peace to the Middle East - you see the staff's humanity in full swing. This episode is one of the rare with points of happiness and sadness all wrapped up in one single explosion. Lets not forget the gloomy Toby's situation either. His ex-wife is "almost blown up".
