Storyline

A militia group takes Tom's brother (and two other airmen) hostage in Afghanistan, throwing the after-party into turmoil -- and lock-down, as the press discover the relationship. Jordan has pregnancy complications and is rushed to the hospital. Danny catches up as soon as he can. When the complications turn to a C-section, he proffers the engagement ring he's been carrying around; Jordan accepts. Mary Tate (lawyer) mentions that there are international liaisons who have a decent record of ransoming hostages. Matt wrestles with the implications, then asks her to sound them out. Due to the situation, he breaks their dinner date, although she continues to come on to him. All of this is set against flashbacks to 9/11 and the S60 season premier that Friday. Wes was in the hospital, leaving Matt & Danny in his stead. Jack refuses to postpone the premier, adding the restriction that they control their script content. We see the early conflicts leading up to their dismissal. The 2001 Jack is ... Written by norcekri

Another exceptional episode
30 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's often a big maligned 'Studio 60' for various reasons, and for being the only Aaron Sorkin penned show to not get a second series (The Newsroom went for three, but that doesn't mean it was much good) but this episode really shows the quality of the writing and the cast involved.

Flashing back to just after 9/11 shows us how the characters dealt with the crisis, and how a comedy show carries on in the face of tragedy.

I thought Steven Weber as ever was fab as Jack Rudolph, and there were some lovely moments between Bradley Whitford's Danny and Amanda Peet's Jordan too.

The final sequence set to 'Have a little faith in me' by John Hiatt was brilliant, and topped off a fabulous episode of the show.
