Storyline

The Air Force "comfort officer" is anything but; Tom and Simon try to deal with him and with public misinformation. Flashbacks to the post-9/11 show provide political perspective, foreshadow Danny & Matt getting fired, and showcase Andy and the earlier writing team. Harriet and Matt visit Danny as Jordan has internal complications. Danny discovers he's not a father -- at least, not to the hospital or the courts. He sends Matt back to deal with the hostage situation, while Harriet remains for support. The doctor's pace and focus easily stand up to S60 repartee. Written by norcekri

Preachy, but good entertaining drama nonetheless
4 December 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

The only good thing about Aaron Sorkin probably knowing by this point that 'Studio 60' wouldn't be returning for a second series is that he was able to wrap things up the way he wanted to, without having the awful cliff-hanger ending that never gets resolved.

There's a lot to like in this episode, from moments that display the excellent chemistry between Matt and Danny, to Sorkin being able to show us how they left 'Studio 60' in the first place.

Even at this late stage the people coming into the cast are fab, with James Lesure on top form here as Captain Boyle.

Yes, it's a bit preachy with its politics, but for being such high class entertainment, surely we can forgive that.
