Picking up where the events of the last episode, "Bartlet's Third State of the Union," left off, this episode sees the hostage situation in Columbia go from bad to worse when a rescue team is ambushed. Meanwhile, Josh continues to stress-out over the lack of polling data, Ainsley (Emily Procter) makes a bad second impression on the president, and Toby attempts to thwart a possible disruptive third-party presidential run by a dissatisfied senator (Ed Begley Jr.). Coincidentally, the title of this episode, "The War at Home," is the same as a 1996 film starring Martin Sheen and directed by the actor's son, Emilio Estevez.
