A Navy fighter pilot collides with a North Korean jet and the crew goes missing in hostile North Korean territory. Upon hearing this, Bartlet orders an elite Navy SEAL team on a rescue mission, triggering Leo's memories of being downed as a pilot over North Vietnam. Meanwhile, C.J. decides to go head-to-head on air with the newscaster who labeled her "chicken of the week"; Josh is angry after being undercut by Ryan in a briefing with the President; and Bartlet poses for his official portrait.
