Briefing room. Reporters are asking Toby all kinds of questions about Castro, and it's clear that he has no information to share with them. The only interesting piece of information to come out is that Bingo Bob is staking out a pro-embargo position. At one point, a reporter starts to ask a question about the fact that Cuba has taken the place of East Asia as the destination of choice for "pedophiles and sex tourists." Toby cuts him off, saying "No, I can't issue you a visa." Heh. Most of the questions start to be about positions being taken by candidates, and Toby tells them that he's not there to discuss the campaign. We leave the briefing as a reporter starts to ask a question about Framhagen.
Kate walks into a bar. I wish I could say that was the start of a joke, but it's not. Except to the extent that this entire episode is a joke. She sees a man sitting at a table against the wall and walks up to him. He stands up and says, with an indeterminate Latin-American accent, "She's a blonde now." She tells him that she wasn't going to come, and he wonders if she would really "stand up a former CIA compatriot, after all these years." Dude, way to maintain your cover. He starts to reminisce about their days of "splendor in the grass," and she cuts him off: "What do you want, Andy?" He tells her that they are no longer running "off the reservation ops," and there's "no more messing with elections." But, he tells her, their assignment is still the same. He goes on to warn her that it would be a mistake for the White House to try anything with Cuba. She asks him what he's talking about, and he tells her about Leo's trip to see Uncle Fidel. She denies any knowledge of the trip, and he thinks she's just maintaining cover. And then she says, "Oakland, northern California, northern California, Oakland. It's Little Saigon."
Kate accosts C.J. in a crowded White House corridor. A fucking subtitle tells us that it's Wednesday morning. Kate asks C.J. why nobody told her about Leo's trip to Cuba. Again, I love how these superspies maintain secrecy. C.J. wants to know how Kate found out about the trip, and Kate doesn't exactly answer the question. C.J. demonstrates her own chops as an interrogator, throwing Kate off-balance by asking her about Framhagen and why he would bring up her name in relation to Castro's health. Kate mentions that she met Framhagen when she was posted in Florida in 1995. And then she warns C.J., "We don't want to get stuck in the muck down there again." And then she says, "Providence, Rhode Island, Rhode Island, Providence. It's Koreatown."
