* A meeting to decide the nine Supreme Court justices to be filled out is hijacked by Bowman wanting a right-wining majority. The Democrats are about to walk but Kirkman ''slams'' his palms on the table and yells at them both to sit down. He then rips into Bowman on this and making it clear he's willing to march into the press room and lay it all on Bowman's feet.

** For extra awesome, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard he uses the exact same justification Cochrane was using to authorize the attack]].

* Despite Kirkman's [[HeroWithBadPublicity questionable reputation]], he was able to tell that General Cochrane wants to engage Iran despite no concrete evidence that Tehran backed the attack on Washington D.C. He also agreed with Seth bluntly that he probably won't be a good leader.

* A major debate rages on whether or not to remove a Confederate statue from a courthouse. To the surprise of both sides, a black activist says the statue should stay as a reminder of this time. When a young female white liberal slams him for "selling out," he nicely puts her in her place.
-->'''Dale''': Young lady, you mean well. You declare this is racist and that is racist. But you are young, white and living in America. You don't know what it's like to walk in my shoes and I won't always be around to tell you. But that statue will. It stays.

!!! Sting of the Tail
* Towards the end of the episode, Kirkman and his administration finally find a legal ground to [[spoiler:send a bunker-buster missile into [[BigBad Patrick Lloyd's]] hideout in Maryland, decisively ending his reign as a KarmaHoudini]] -- although, [[SequelHook naturally]], he managed to upload ''something'' to the internet before time ran out. [[spoiler:Fortunately, HesJustHiding is not a possibility, because Lloyd's remains are indeed reported to have been found in the wreckage.]]

!!! One Year In
* Kirkman realizes that a hijacking of a Russian airliner on American soil is a FalseFlagOperation designed to give Russia an excuse to invade Ukraine, which Ukraine has figured out and is letting happen, as an invasion would finally gain them some Western aid. So, the President calls in the Russian and Ukrainian ambassadors and chews them out on this, making it perfectly clear that if any Americans die because of this stunt, he'll see to it that both countries are crippled by sanctions, and that the ambassadors are personally held responsible. Needless to say, the situation soon ends up resolved peacefully.

* The brilliant solution to the gridlock? Just have the eight justices already approved on the Court. When they argue over the ninth, it's pointed out that the Constitution says nothing about how many judges there have to be and let the ninth spot be figured out later.
