Episode 225 Recap: "When the Chickens Come Home"
Immediately after Brandon leaves, Maggie steps into David's office to ask whether he's finally decided to run for governor. David is still on the fence about entering the race, telling Maggie he still needs to talk to Jim about it. He refuses to turn his back on his friend.
David enters Jim's office to tell him about the money he retrieved from Candace out of loyalty to him. Rather than thanking David, Jim behaves dismissively, gesturing for David to leave his office.
