Storyline

Santos's efforts to overcome a history of racial tensions between minorities aren't helped when a Latino officer shoots a black child in Los Angeles. C.J. is coordinating Ellie's wedding at the White House when Kate approaches her for help with the rapidly-escalating problems in Kazakhstan -- leaving a reluctant Will in charge of planning the ceremony. Josh visits the White House to ask a favor of the president, before dropping in on Toby at his home. Written by Murray Chapman

Santos' greatest moment
5 January 2013 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

The only West Wing episode that guarantees my tears. Santos gives a towering speech in a black church, two days after a neighborhood boy is killed by an hispanic cop. Smits' most powerful of the series. As he walks out of the church, to the standing applause of a crowd who hadn't much wanted him there, he takes the hand of his pink-skinned wife. Beautiful imagery...and further evidence that writer Deborah Cahn is the only reason that post-Sorkin naysayers are emphatically wrong. A decidedly icy Toby gets a visit from Josh, the first contact he's had with anyone since being fired. The debut of Cress Williams (BEVERLY HILLS 90210) as Santos staffer Lester. Mary McCormack gets a beautiful, hysterical moment watching Will Bailey's ass.
