They call her...the jackal
23 October 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

A reporter startles Zoey into lying to cover for a friend. Mallory grills Sam for over an hour, over his school voucher beliefs written in a paper she doesn't realize is opposition research. A transcendent scene in which the appointee for assistant attorney general (Carl Lumbly - ALIAS, M.A.N.T.I.S., CAGNEY & LACEY) argues with Josh that the government owes black people a trillion dollars in slavery reparations. A little Danny, some Jorja, a bit o' Butterfield, Toby and Mandy arguing about pandas...and possibly the most beautiful kiss in show history, as Zoey pins Charlie against a West Wing wall. And the first over-the-top Bartlet jacket donning!
