In Jed's recovery room, he's being briefed by Ron Butterfield about some of the details of the shooting. Abby and Zoey are there. One was using a 9mm Berretta; the other was using a .357 Desert Eagle. Abby tells Jed that Ron had said that these are absolutely the wrong kinds of weapons to use for this kind of shooting and that's why the injury count was so low. Jed says, "We don't know what the injury count was yet." Abby starts to argue but just then Charlie knocks and comes in saying that he was told POTUS wanted to see him. Jed tells him that the guy in the custody of the Secret Service is named Carl Leroy, and that he's given a statement saying that he and the two shooters are members of an organization called West Virginia White Pride. Charlie asks, "They tried to kill the President because Zoey and I are together?" (I thought Charlie would have said "tried to kill you" rather than "tried to kill the President" here, but whatever.) Abby says, "No." Charlie's still not quite getting it, and Ron steps in. "Charlie, the President wasn't the target. According to the statement, the President wasn't the target." Zoey looks down. Charlie Gets It. He says simply, "Okay..okay...well...okay. Thank you, Mr. President." He leaves without a word. Zoey looks at him and says, "Dad, I'm..." Jed says, "Go." She chases after Charlie.
