Yesterday I missed the showings of West Wing on Sky Atlantic so missed the glorious return of Sam Seaborn. Which I still have issues about. I mean, I get not wanting to blow the Rob Lowe reveal at the same time as everyone else who returned for "Requeim," and I love the callback to "Two Gunmen" with Josh pulling Sam out of a board meeting. But for me, and I have said this for 11 years, there is nothing, short of a full body cast, that would have prevented Sam being at Leo's funeral. And even then, he would have convinced someone to get him there AMA.

Today was " Instituitional Memory" and "Tomorrow" - I still love Kate and Will and one day will write the fic where she follows him to Oregon and they make a go of it. Because I have it written in my head! The CJ and Danny stuff really works for me and I love the Santos/Helen relationship, the banter between them the morning of the inauguration was super.

I got teary at several points during the finale, especially when Bartlet was doing his little walk around. And during his goodbye with CJ. And when CJ and Josh were in Leo's office, and during Mallory's last little look around before she left.

However, the scene at the end, where Jed unwraps the gift and it's the napkin? Big ugly cry. Huge big ugly cry, even after all these years.
