I liked this episode a lot. I liked the debate over the terrorist demand at the meeting with the President; it's always nice to see Bob Gunton play a good guy. And this is the first time I can remember since Season 2 that we're had an insurrection against the President without someone behind it being evil (assuming that Rob Weiss isn't a secret accomplice of Dana/Jenny's).
I like seeing President Taylor take the same approach as President Bush: we don't negotiate harm to our friends with terrorists.
I loved Jack's intuition that something was wrong when he couldn't get a response from Ethan -- and his action made sense considering his history, even though that action seemed like sheer intuition to anyone who didn't know his history.
The only part that seemed contrived was Dana/Jenny being able to knock out the trunk line for 30 seconds so that the terrorists were able to escape. But that was a minor flaw in what I thought of as a good episode otherwise.
