Jason is grabbing a coffee when he sees a journalist he knows. She recently insulted Liz in one of her columns. Jason sits for a minute to talk about how strong his mother is.
Russell comes to see Liz to tell her that he knows who tampered with her election. They sit down together and she calls the president of Iran to tell him to turn over his people. He denies it and then gives her 48 hours.
Stevie and Dmitri have been hiding out for weeks. He asks her if they can go out. Meanwhile, Liz is in the Oval with the national spelling bee winner when the press has some interesting questions. Blake tells Russell he thinks he knows why they are asking the questions they are. Later, Iran threatens the US if Liz doesn’t back off with her extradition demands.
