Will learns that his father has died. Bombs explode in Syria and a couple pretending to be victims of the blast prank call the station. Nude photos of Sloan are leaked online by a disgruntled former boyfriend. She confronts him, punches him in the face, and takes a photo. A Rutgers student, about to be interviewed by Will, posts on Twitter that he will announce he is gay while on the show and Mac stops him from going on. Don tries to correct a statement he made to a reporter at WorldNetDaily. A confidential source gives Charlie a cargo manifest from Operation Genoa that contains a classified item, which Charlie believes is sarin gas. Jim suspects Maggie (who is still shaken from her ordeal in Africa) is drunk at work. Takes place on March 16, 2012.
