  • I enjoyed this episode, though knowing the conclusion of Leo's storyline, i still cried my heart out.

    As a viewer of 7 years now, Leo McGarry was one of my favourite characters. His scenes with Martin Sheen, could make me laugh and cry.
    I'm glad that the death was worked into the plot of the show, I would have hated Leo to become an off camera presence, his character and John Spencer himself deserved to have some kudos for his work.

    In this episode, it was really upsetting to see a cast obviously grief stricken, show that kind of emotion without being over the top, as unfortunately this is a television show, and as the saying goes it must go on.
    I thought Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen and Allison Janey especially were wonderful, as they always are.
