"The Outsider" (Feb 2, 2003)
ticket in 2004, so best guess is he and the president win in 2008. (Of course he could be appointed, but that's not relevent). Anyway, the point being that in 2009 he's still VP, and the world is not yet destroyed (i.e. D.C. is not in ruins). It just seems to be a good bit farther away for Stillson to get to the presidency that I would have thought the producers were aiming for. Assuming the president doesn't die in office (and I wouldn't put it past Stillson to have a hand in it) he couldn't be president until 2012 at the earliest.
That's just a long-reaching timeline...which means the show (which will most likely not run 9+ years) and Johnny will be dealing with Stillson much earlier in his political run. Just an interesting decision to have made.
lend doubts to the relationship working at this point. But, oh well, guess everyone lived happily ever after anyway.
Yeah, I think about these things too much ;)
Very good episode. I give it a 7/10.
