'Newsroom' recap: Mayday
Will doesn't get any calls, so he feels free to take Vicodin and eat two very strong pot cookies, courtesy of Neal's sort-of girlfriend. When everyone gets word that Obama is going to give a Very Important Speech, the NewsNight team springs into action! Except for Will, who is stoned off his ass. Oops!
Unfortunately, they're going to have to let him anchor the night, because Terry Smith doesn't exist, ACN's D.C. correspondent is having a power struggle with MacKenzie, and Elliot is stuck on a plane with Sloan and Don, who gets in a fight with the rule-loving flight attendant and has harsh words for Lester, his seat neighbor. Also, Sloan set Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on fire. Oops!
