In his office, Toby takes Josh's call. Josh is asking that they do something to quiet down the leak story, but Toby breaks it to him that the White House is ending its investigation of the leak. Josh recognizes that this will throw the focus onto security issues for a while, giving Vinick a chance to dominate the discussion and contrast himself with the Democrats. Josh starts yelling at Toby, who just hangs up on him.
Back at Santos HQ, a cable-news talking head is already discussing the effect of the announcement on the Santos campaign. I just don't think things happen this quickly -- especially not this early in the morning. Josh, looking angry and frustrated, walks over to the whiteboard while Otto asks if the leak fits into the "trivia" box. Josh doesn't answer -- instead, he just erases the checkmark he drew in the "domestic" box and draws another checkmark in the "security" box. Credits (which feature a curiously reduced cast -- no Janel Moloney or Dulé Hill, although Kristin Chenoweth, Mary McCormack, John Spencer, and Martin Sheen are there despite the fact that none of them appears in the episode).
Santos HQ is now buzzing with activity. Josh is on the phone in the conference room telling someone (Bram?) to keep Santos away from the press until they know how Vinick responds to the news.
