We next see C.J. emerging from the Office of O with Jed, talking about the prep work she'll be doing for him regarding tomorrow's set of expected questions. For the moment, though, she's taking him to meet the "Eagle Rangers," the Boy Scout types who have finally arrived after getting lost earlier in the day on the way to the White House. As Jed asks the Eagle Rangers whether they'd mind staying another night at the Marriott, C.J. wanders off to huddle with Carol. But then she and Carol are behind Jed as he talks to the Eagle Rangers, so...I don't know. FNG says that the administration went on with its day following the explosion (as you do), and that little information was forthcoming, so as to whether there was contention over how to handle it, they "could only speculate." Jed dismisses the Eagle Rangers, promising to see them tomorrow in the Rose Garden. He then takes C.J. aside and asks her if she's holding up. "Oh, yes, sir," she chirps.
C.J. interviews that she "serves two masters." The truth, I guess, and the president? The president and the public? There's a good chance that that would count as the ninth run through that same thought, depending on what she means. It's too bad that you can't tell. Anyway, C.J. does a briefing where she introduces Agent Casper. He announces that the standoff has been concluded and that Holed-Up Guy recovered. They discovered that explosives were wired all around the cabin. Holed-Up Guy was shot in the shoulder, but he's now in stable condition. As it turns out, the whole thing started when the agents came to serve an arrest warrant, and Holed-Up Guy shot at them and released his attack dog. One agent has bad dog-related injuries, and he's in critical condition. The littlest Holed-Up Kid was injured, it turns out, by flying glass, and will be fine. As we hear this press briefing from Agent Casper, we see C.J. in her office, reading a little note that seems to have come from the flak jacket of legend. She smiles a little after reading it. I have a feeling the note says, "The show is almost over."
