C.J.'s in her office gazing at a black-and-white picture of a little girl who's horsing around with two little boys. The girl sure looks like she could be Alison Janney. (I always wonder if the prop people ask the actors to bring in their own photographs for these shots.) Mandy drops by to see if C.J. has everything she needs for a briefing; she does. C.J. mentions that "his mother's name is Sophia." Mandy laughs and says she'll need more than that. I think maybe C.J. knows that. Mandy starts to walk away but C.J. calls her back to say that she (C.J.) has no position on capital punishment, that she thinks she should be worked up about it but she doesn't give a care if Simon Cruz lives or dies. Okay, she doesn't say "give a care" but this recap is dragging me down and I needed to cheer myself up. C.J. goes on to read the part of the briefing that describes the physical symptoms of receiving the lethal injection. She seems fairly bummed by it, but she and Mandy both claim they don't get worked up over it. Mandy, I believe. C.J., I'm not so sure. She says that her job is to go in to the President's office at 12:04 AM. and tell him that Simon Cruz is dead, and they're the ones who killed him. C.J. wishes she didn't know his mother's name. Mandy, evidently incapable of saying anything supportive or sympathetic, leaves without a word. C.J. goes back to looking at her picture.
