During his dinner date with C.J., Danny reveals some startling news about the President's son-in-law. A combination of events prompts C.J. to realize that the time she has remaining in her powerful position is dwindling; she begins a complicated game of diplomacy with France, Germany, and China to affect real change in Darfur, where thousands of people are being killed each week. Josh is in town to coordinate the Santos campaign with the Bartlet administration, and seems to know more than he should about government decisions. Written by Murray Chapman

Bangin' the nanny.
7 January 2013 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

The teaser, with Danny revealing to C.J. that presidential son-in-law and congressional candidate Doug has been having sex with the family's nanny, is brilliant. I laughed hysterically at the dialogue and acting...humor- wise, Sorkin never did better himself. I searched for the writer, expecting "Cahn"...but it was our very own Bradley Whitford! The rest of the episode doesn't disappoint, as Will has to investigate the reports, and C.J. has to tell Doug the President can't appear with him. She also receives an unexpected visit from Liz Bartlet (the wonderful Annabeth Gish). The Busfield/Janney scenes are by far the best thing going here, as he tells her he wants to be a part of her life. It's been too long since WW was this fulfilling.
