On a night in August, 2011, there are many top stories as voter ID laws take hold and Congressional Republicans hold the nation's credit hostage. In flashbacks, we see the eight days leading up to a hard-hitting broadcast. Will is in hospital, resolved not to come back to "News Night," Brian's published a savage piece in "New York," Charlie's source at the NSA may not be rock solid, and Nina is pursuing confirmation that Will was high on the night he announced bin Laden's death. Sloan surprises Don, Don surprises Maggie, Jim takes a "Sex and the City" bus tour, Neal eggs on the haters, and a somewhat-familiar young woman sits in the newsroom. Written by

When Will is in hospital on his laptop, he is watching the footage of his tirade against the sophomore student at Northwestern
University. However, the camera angle from which the video was taken would not have existed, as there were no cameras in that position. It was obviously extracted from the Pilot "We Just Decided to". See more
