April, 2011: Will has insomnia and drops by a psychiatrist's office for a prescription. The doc, the son of a man Will consulted four years before, invites Will to sit: their session becomes flashbacks of the previous week. The Japanese may be downplaying the danger at Fukushima, Will presses Sloane to ask tougher follow-up questions, Mackenzie directs Jim and Maggie to do opposition research on Will (so Charlie can anticipate the next gossip attack), Will insists viewers' Internet comments no longer be anonymous and he receives a threat on his life, and Rick Santorum explores running for President. An engagement ring appears, a gay man interviewed. Who are the bullies? Written by

I, along with most people who don't live in Japan, am not fluent in Japanese, so I have to ask: did you just *make up* statements for someone we had live on our air?
I didn't make them up...
About a *deadly radiation leak*?
I didn't make them up. He told me the reactor was going to a seven.
When? Tonight? I'm asking, honestly, because there was a portion of the broadcast that turned into a Kurosawa movie.
