  • Powerful episode.

    8.5
    It was beautifully written episode. The whole atmosphere, the way the story starts and goes, those thoughts.. those ideas brought out. It was episode what had it all - some very hard topics, great questions, some humor and drama.



    I most say, probably the strongest storyline was with Bartlet and his dealing with past presidents but also the way that reflected his presents and the situation on Saudi-Arabia. The whole atmosphere created by those things.. it was marvelous, very thought provoking, felt heavy and very thick.. And the letter.. the room.. and the ending... what a brilliant choice for the last scene, simple but so speaking.moreless
