When the Federal Reserve Chairmen dies, Bartlet must quickly choose a successor in order to avoid a financial chaos. However, he is reluctant to pick the obvious choice for Fed Chair, who used to be Abby's boyfriend. The matter is worsened when Danny Concanon receives a quote from the first lady saying she supports her ex-boyfriend, leaving Bartlett more irate. Meanwhile, Josh and Toby are courting congressman in order to get more votes for a bill they already won. However, a congresswoman, who felt 'betrayed' by Abby, poses a threat to the bill. Written by Eddie G.

Bookbag is in for the night.
23 October 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

Most four-star episodes are led there by one scene that transcends mere excellence. In this case, it's a Danny two-for-one, as he gives dating advice to Charlie, before being pathetically grilled about the first lady by Jed in the Oval Office. Elsewhere, her staff is jousting with the President's, endangering an important vote. Abbey and Jed have their first oval office fight, exquisitely written and acted. Charlie is frustrated because death threats cause he and Zoey to cancel plans. The final scene, where he comes to her dorm bearing gifts and apologies, may have you laughing out loud in delight. It took me two episodes to realize that Mandy has been missing in action. Almost, but not quite, gone. Fare ye well, Moira (but yes, the absence of the link that never clicked means that the show might actually become MORE seamless?).
