Amy runs up and greets Tommy Bridges, who is staring at a portrait like most six-year-olds do. He tells her they're in the East Room, where the "fancy events" are held. They point out their creepy mute nannies to each other. He points out a mistake in a plaque and Amy haughtily informs him that Mac will fix the misspelling. Tommy gravely tells Amy that she won't ever see her mom again, and they gaze at the portrait in six-year-old contemplation.
Jim and Mac are getting coffee in what appears to be the presidential break room. It's like any other office kitchenette, but with much more actual china and antique tea sets all around. They discuss the "Grace Situation": Jim's adamant that someone needs to speak to her about what she did, even if she was invited to participate. Mac offers to talk to her, and finally Jim points out that Grace might not be the one who needs to be talked to. Mac concedes, but looks uncomfortable, and Jim offers to take care of it. Good God, I can't get over how bad an idea this is. So far, we've seen nothing but Rod's not being able to handle a different (and yes, diminished) role. We've seen him not take advice well from Jim. He needs to hear this from Mac. And I realize she won't want to do that because it's uncomfortable, but Rod's also not going to take it from anyone else. Welcome to being a grown-up, in a grown-up situation. Mac and Jim are notified that Duran is in the residence, and the NSC and the Attorney General are in the Oval Office. They leave to their meetings.
Melanie is a wet blanket: there's no legal justification for seizing and arresting Sanchez. There are a lot of suggestions, those same suggestions being shot down, and inter-operative sniping. Finally, Mac asks, "Are you telling me, are you seriously telling me, that all my options are exhausted?" There are shots of everyone; that's a lot of furrowed brow. Jim, however, wins the award for the furrowest. The General finally says, "There are more options. Give us a few hours."
