Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Picking up where the season-one finale cliffhanger left off, the second-season premiere of NBC's The West Wing finds the Bartlet Administration in tumult. Both the president and Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman have been shot and are undergoing medical treatment to save their lives. As the others wait to receive word on their conditions, they flash back to the campaign that originally brought them all together. "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen, Part I" received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing.
