U.S. Attorney's conference room. Alana and Toby are there, and the U.S. Attorney comes in wearing casual clothing. He's not pleased at being called away from his kids on Halloween. There's a long pause as neither Toby nor Alana say anything. Toby starts a little monologue about what an ambitious dude the prosecutor (whose name we finally learn is Peter Blake) is, and asks him what will happen to his opportunities to advance politically or as a judge if he pisses off the entire Democratic Party leadership by screwing up the election. There's a photo of Jed on the wall behind Toby, glowering down on the scene. Blake is pretty pissed off at Toby's suggestion, and repeats his threat to go to the grand jury in the morning. Toby: "No, you're not. You're not gonna do this. It's wrong and it's irresponsible." Blake thinks the irresponsibility of his actions don't hold a candle to the "Chief of Staff of the United States sharing classified Defense Department information with an unauthorized individual." There's some back and forth about whether or not that happened, with Toby insisting that C.J. did nothing more than ask him a hypothetical question, but Blake thinks that in itself was enough to get C.J. into trouble. He's getting angry, and asks Toby, "Please tell me I didn't leave a crying six-year-old in a Dorothy costume for this." Toby just looks at him, silently.
Chaos outside the Santos bus. Josh is on the phone, Lou's on the phone, everybody's on the phone. They are running late for the big rally in Houston, and Lou is trying to get someone there to keep the crowd in place for the several hours it will take for Santos to get there. Santos walks off the bus. He has successfully spoken with Russell, who acted like he didn't have time to campaign in Colorado for Santos because he was already committed to campaigning for other candidates. But Santos still pushed him to say yes, promising to find replacements to take Russell's place at other appearances. Santos throws a miniature tantrum, asking, "Am I going to get any time with McNally before this day is over?" I've been asking myself that question for the entire episode. Josh tells him that they'll have time to talk on the bus after the photo op. This entire time, Santos and a massive group are pedeconferencing along, Santos occasionally waving at people in the crowd. Santos is not thrilled at having such limited time with McNally, since he thinks the situation in Kazakhstan will have a profound influence on any new foreign policy initiatives. Lou smiles at Santos and says, "Try to make it look like you're enjoying your time with the children."
