C.J. and Kate walk through the West Wing. They're discussing Jed's upcoming call with the Israeli Prime Minister. Charlie walks by and says "Vinick" to C.J., upon which C.J. tells Kate that the Vinick campaign called to complain about the CIA analyst assigned to brief Vinick. C.J. can't remember the analyst's name, and can only remember that he was blathering on about one of the 'Stans. And then Kate's beeper goes off and she has to leave. I bet that was Bram.
C.J. walks into her office, where both Toby and Charlie ambush her. Toby asks how she's doing, and she notes that she's on her "last drop of adrenaline." Charlie tells C.J., "That guy called again." C.J.: "Margaret often gives me a name." Toby's surprised to hear that Margaret is not back yet. And again, why is Charlie filling in for Margaret? In any case, Charlie tells C.J. that the guy's name is Charles Frost. C.J. has no idea who he is. Toby and C.J. chat about Santos's God gaffe. Toby tells C.J., "Hey, I got subpoenaed." But he says it in the same way he would tell her, "Hey, I got a great deal on this suit." He asks if she's heard anything yet, and she tells him, "Nope. Last one to get a subpoena's a rotten egg." Toby reminds her that it really means she's the focus of the investigation. He asks whether she has a lawyer, and tells her to get one. C.J.: "I don't need a lawyer if I haven't done anything wrong." Charlie sticks his head in and tells C.J. that Jed is on the phone with the PM.
Office of O. C.J. enters as Jed is wrapping up the phone call. She asks how it went, and he tells her, "He's nervous." She asks if the PM will attend the funeral; it turns out he was unwilling to say. There's some discussion of the situation on the ground -- Palestinians are protesting, accusing Israel of being behind the assassination, Israel has closed its border crossings, and the real challenge of the moment will be keeping the Palestinian Speaker alive and not screwing up his chances to win the election in sixty days. Kate enters with an update on the bomber: he was a twenty-three-year-old medical student who played on "the jihad mosque soccer team." Unlike a former recapper, I have absolutely no basis for evaluating any of the representations of Palestine or Islam on this show. (But if they start shooting scenes in gay bars, I'll let you know if they get it right.) He was apparently not linked to any extremist group, but was very fervent in the exercise of his religious beliefs, and appears to have acted on his own. And then Kate tells Jed that satellites have picked up Israeli tank movements. Jed pauses, and then decisively tells the assembled group that they need to get as many world leaders as possible at the funeral to demonstrate that the international community fully supports the peace plan. Kate notes that the Palestinians are demanding that the funeral be held at the Dome of the Rock, which is in Israeli-controlled Jerusalem. C.J. points out that it will be difficult to guarantee Jed's safety, and Kate chimes in, "Only world leaders with a death wish would go to this funeral." Jed: "Fine, then we'll send Congress." And then Toby tells Jed that he should go: it will demonstrate respect for Farad and a commitment to the peace process. Jed didn't really need Toby's affirmation, because he is already determined to attend the funeral. Debbie enters, and Jed tells her to get the leaders of Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon on the phone. All at once? I'm imagining some call-waiting hijinks, with split screen shots of Jed on the phone with various leaders. It could be hi-larious. Jed dismisses everyone, but calls out to Kate: "Commander? We're going to hold this peace together."
