Thursday. Sam sits in his car in a rainstorm. Eventually, he sees Log Kabin Kevin exit from DuPont Tower, and jumps out of his car to confront him. After chasing him down, he yells at Kevin about the betrayal. Kevin tells Sam to go to hell. Sam demands an explanation. Kevin, in turn, demands an explanation for the open mike. Sam insists that it was a mistake, but Kevin doesn't believe that. How interesting that Kevin is right. It turns out that Kevin and the Republicans weren't laughing at that joke at all. Kevin says, "That was my candidate you made a punch line out of. Is it going to happen again? I think it will." Sam angrily responds, "I think it will, too." Log Kabin Kevin turns and walks away.
Jed sits alone in the Oval Office. Charlie escorts in Leo and Fitzwallace. Abdul has been arrested, and a boat was seized about two hundred yards away from the port of Oakland, California. Wow, that's quite a ways away from Bethesda. The boat contained five thousand kilos of ammonium nitrate and a gallon of diesel fuel. The target was Fort Point, which has been decommissioned and therefore makes for an unusual target choice. But there's more: Fort Point serves as an anchoring position for the Golden Gate Bridge, and destroying the base could also potentially destroy the bridge. I can't imagine the vile things that would come out of Jerry Falwell's mouth if a terrorist attack were to hit San Francisco. POTUS is concerned that their intelligence was so off-base all this time, and that they barely averted a disaster. He again asks why they haven't heard from Shareef in Qumar. Fitzwallace tells him that he doesn't know yet, but he does have some unsettling news: now that they've got better ties with Russia following the Helsinki meeting, they're getting more information from that Chechnyan prisoner who alerted them to the attack from the first place. The prisoner says that he worked with an operative from the Bahji terrorist cell who claimed that he reported to Abdul Shareef, who is not only America's source for intelligence from Qumar, but also apparently the Qumari defense minister. Meaning, of course, that the military leader of another country may have been the one to orchestrate the attack on the Golden Gate Bridge. Fitzwallace says they're not sure yet, but Jed points out that Shareef is coming to the U.S. in ten days; Jed wants Fitzwallace to give him an answer by then. Fitz agrees and leaves. Leo and Jed look at each other with concern.
