Leo walks out onto the patio, rather than directly into the Oval Office. Out on the patio, he walks slowly and heavily toward the doors of Jed's office, and stands there looking at Jed through the French doors. Jed's on the phone with someone, the receiver clutched up to his ear with his shoulder as he looks at a file. Leo stands on the patio, unnoticed by Jed, wondering how in God's name to deliver this dreadful news. I sit here being so mad at myself I could kick something, like maybe my own ass, for having carelessly read the spoiler topic, not suspecting it could contain anything this big that was going to get ruined for me. And it has been ruined; the impact was diminished by about ninety percent due to knowing beforehand. My own damn fault. I wish people could just enjoy television without having to know and disseminate major spoilers; what's the point in watching if you already know what's going to happen? Anyway. ["A hard lesson to learn, but now you know not to read the spoiler thread." -- Wing Chun] Leo finally moves toward the door; his face mildly distorted by the panes of wavy glass in the windows. (Minor nitpick: I would have thought the doors to the Oval Office would have the best bullet-proof glass, not quaint old wavy glass. I mean, my house is Victorian, and I appreciate wavy glass as much as anyone, but I'm just saying.) Jed notices Leo moving on the patio and waves him in. Leo enters, closing the door behind him. Jed hangs up the phone. We see, but do not hear, Leo delivering the news of Mrs. Landingham's tragic death. Jed's face grows more and more serious, and the camera moves in such a way as to exaggerate the blurriness of the wavy glass. We can barely make out the expression on Jed's face, and yet it, and his body language, speak volumes.
