Jed walks out and meets Zoey, who is wearing a beige pant suit and a black sling and being fussed over by her mother (who's wearing an eggplant satin blouse and black skirt). Jed says to Abby, "Are you..." Abby offers a hesitant-sounding sigh, as Zoey assures her mother that she's okay. I think Jed was asking if Abby was joining them, and Abby deferred to Zoey. If that's not what that was about, then I have no idea. As they approach the reporters, C.J. tells Zoey, "You know how to do this. Just breathe and walk. You look great." As they come into sight of the media, everyone starts shouting her name and questions and snapping pictures. The footage of Zoey and her dad walking along is intercut with black-and-white still shots being snapped and Ominous Music. Zoey has one brief flashback to the moments between being drugged and abducted, and then she pulls it together, turns, and waves enthusiastically. She smiles as the reporters shout greeting and compliments.
Leo, Toby, and Josh are having a meeting in the Roosevelt Room. Leo begins by addressing "Mr. Speaker" and "Mr. Leader." But just in case you've never seen this show before, and just in case you've already forgotten that just five minutes ago they talked about meeting with the Republican Leadership, and just in case you're so impatient or addled that you can't wait the three and a half seconds it would take for the nature of the meeting to become apparent, they've helpfully provided a title card that says "The Republican Leadership." Honestly, who the hell is that for? The Jerry Springer Show viewers who are suddenly tuning in in droves? Leo thanks them and pats both parties on the back for the way the recent crisis has been handled. He goes on to inform them of the President's choice for VPOTUS. Long story short: they don't want Berryhill. Josh complains that Berryhill is the most popular Secretary of State "since...whoever Lincoln had." Haffley supplies the information: "Seward. Lincoln had Seward, who was stabbed in his bed." Popularity, boy, I don't know. Leo offers to give the Republicans the room, but Haffley says he doesn't need to be "schooled by [his] Senate brethren." Josh says that Haffley's job is to "advise and consent." They push Berryhill; the other party's not having it. Haffley tells them that they're going to have a fight to confirm Berryhill. It gets slightly unpleasant, and then Haffley produces his list of names of people who could be "easily confirmed." Leo looks at it, and then hands it to Josh. Josh reads it and asks, "This is your list?" Haffley nods. Toby reads it and then Mr. Leader says, "Do you mind?" Toby hands it to him; he reads it. Hasn't he seen it already? Leo asks: "Senator?" He says he has no problem with the list. Toby and Josh seem concerned. Haffley pushes the list back to the middle of the table.
