So, I’m on my ten millionth rewatch. And I’m on the episode where josh takes people to the Georgetown bar in the first season. Bartley has THE serious convo with Zoey.
Here’s my question: has anyone in podcasts or the internet found out if sorkin or the post-sorkin writers intentionally used that scene??
I am currently at the tail end of the saga that is Zoey’s kidnapping arc. I’m noticing Abby’s direction of her grief and anger during the time after finding out on TV that Jed ordered Abdul Shareef’s assassination a bit more critically than before.
Have presidents ever been allowed to tell state secrets to their wives? No, right? I don’t get why she doesn’t understand that he can’t include her in those decisions and that it’s sensitive information? She should have known that would be the reality of him being president.
Counter is really just that she never thought he would make a call like that. That she assumed his faith and morals would stand in the face of ordering an assassination which it briefly did.
Help me understand the Abby Bartley psychosis.
It feels like leaving the best part of a meal till last and you put it off as long as you can
What an incredible show. The best of all time imho
Best thing about this rewatch was I'd forgotten just how strong Season 7 was
I'd go as far to say that it even tops one of Sorkin's latter years
In season 3, there's an episode, where the staff are working to discredit a book by a former White House photographer. Most of the book is pure bullshit, but his description of Toby, is quite close to the way Andy later describe him, when he buys the house for her.
