As Josh, Donna, Ed, and Larry march over to the Roosevelt Room, Donna tells them that Haffley, Connelly, and Mitchell are there. Josh: "The unholy trinity." Will thinks they're there to pick a new Speaker. As they walk around the halls outside the Roosevelt Room, Josh looks through the doors, asking, "Is that Duke?" Donna says it is. Josh: "Oh, please don't let it be Duke. He hates me." Will: "Tomlinson?" Josh: "He hates me, too." Ed: "Jim Arkin" Josh: "Arkin really hates me." Donna: "Are you detecting a pattern here?" Steve appears and says, "Hello, Josh. Everybody." Josh asks him how it's going. Steve asks if they want to come in for a second and say hello. Aw. That's sweet. Josh declines. Steve starts to go into the room, and Josh tells him not to get too comfortable in there: "You guys won't be back for three or four more terms." Larry's watching the monitors and says, "Hey, guys..." Josh asks Will, "Do we have any hidden cameras and tape recorders or something in there?" Will: "Not since the mid-'70s." Donna's staring at the screen now, too, and says, "Josh..." There's footage of a fire, and the aftermath of a bombing in Turkey that has taken at least eighty lives.
Sit Room, brought to you in JerkyCam. Everyone in the room is informed that Istanbul is reporting that a truck loaded with TNT drove into a cinema in Antalya. Slattery says at least fourteen Americans, a group of Italian tourists, and sixty Turks are dead. All of the Americans were sailors on shore leave. Nancy -- arms crossed and looking pissed -- says that Aljazeera says it's received a fax from the Bahji. Walken: "So nothing from the kidnappers?" Casper says no, but that they're making progress on the suspects in Baltimore. Big Dan Teague wants to know why they haven't heard been heard from. Casper doesn't know: "It's probably time for us to publicly [sic] encourage them to clarify their position." Fitz: "Maybe they just did." Walken chortles mildly and asks about the five sleepers. Casper: "No, sir." Slattery indicates, "We're hearing a lot of displeasure from the Middle East over the Shareef assassination." Walken's glib response: "Well, if the Arabs are mad at us, we must be doing something right." Jackass. Leo looks like he's getting more and more distraught and discombobulated by everything that's transpiring -- something I'm sure the camera work is meant to underscore, but frankly, it's an insult to John Spencer's superb acting. He is more than capable of conveying what's necessary here. Step away from the JerkyCam.
