With the help of Mrs. Diehl, the housekeeper in the house PEOTUS is being kept in, Keane eludes the secret service and returns to Manhattan. During their drive, Mrs. Diehl and Keane, both of whom lost sons in Iraq, discuss their differing stances towards the war and national security.
Outside her hotel, the press ask Keane to comment on POTUS's plea that she and Congress reauthorize certain provisions of the Patriot Act. Keane says that would be a mistake, insisting that the country needs a new strategy to fight terrorism.
