Storyline

Leo is found in the woods at Camp David and rushed to Bethesda Naval Hospital; President Bartlet's feelings of loyalty and guilt cause him to neglect his duties in favor of maintaining a bedside vigil. With their Chief of Staff out of action and the President unwilling to discuss a replacement, Josh and Toby step on each others toes trying to strike political deals to keep the Middle East peace deal alive. C.J. faces questions from a journalist about who is running the country with both Leo and the President out of the White House. Written by Murray Chapman

C.J. cooking in an apron and floppy hat
13 December 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

This moment always comes upon you sooner than you expect. Leo alive but incapacitated, Jed recruits a new chief of staff. It feels correct to divide the show into three chapters, focusing on story arc: the classic era, the Seabornless era, and the Chief of Staff C.J. era. None of that is a commentary on product; many things will work in this last era, and many fine episodes arise. We'll forget how much has changed...but not always. In this one, with Leo absent and Jed maintaining a hospital vigil, the staff bumbles around directionless. C.J. admonishes Josh to stop eating like a two-year old. You might watch this episode four or five times and not realize Mallory's in it.
