So I just finished watching the last season of the West Wing for the first time, since I for some unexcusable hadn’t seen it before. It’s one of my absolute favourite series, which makes it even weirder. And since I made a deal with myself that I had to watch it before the Prez Election on Tuesday, I’ve been watching 4-5 episodes a day untill now.
But watching it has brought a few questions to my mind, questions that I’m absolutely certain you guys can answer.
First. Charlie and Zoe Bartlet had a relationship for a few seasons. I don’t remember them ending that relationship on the show, or did they?
Second. I remember reading/hearing somewhere that Vinnick was supposed to win the election. But since John Spencer (Leo) died while they were filming, they decided it would be better to let Santos win. Is that correct? And would that be why they did the San Andreas Reactor episode?
Third. Who was Bartlets predesessor? By which I mean, when did the WW-timeline break from the real world? Who was the last real president they mentioned (I seem to remember someone mentioning Reagan in some episode, but none after him).
And since I managed to make it three questions (of variable importance and significance), I don’t have to greet Opal
