  • Danny contemplates forcing hospitalized Jordan to sign Adoption Papers. Tom prepares to take matters into his own hands to get his brother back. Jack continues to try get Simon to apologize for a very public gaffe.

    After 4 episodes of ramp up, the story of this one night at Studio 60 comes to an end. Predictably, Jordan recovers, Danny officially adopts the baby, Tom's brother is rescued, Simon agrees to apologize and save his career, and the most predictably Matt and Harriet get back together.

    Knowing that this was to be a series finale rather than a season finale there was a lot less peril facing these characters for me. The one in the most danger was Tom's brother, perhaps to be killed to make a point about how we've forgotten about the war in Afghanistan.

    Even in this very deep and dramatic episode there is plenty of the Aaron Sorkin wit in the scenes to keep things from becoming too depressing as we await more developments and conclusions.

    There are some moments that are truly touching. The moment of Danny seeing that Jordan wants Rebecca to have his last name and most of all, the moment Tom hears his brothers voice over the phone.

    Even though it was dramatically necessary, the rekindling of the Matt and Harriet romance at the end comes off a little too forced and too quick. All in all, a great episode, a great series, just too bad it was too good for NBC.
