Well, like everyone else, I LOVED that ep!!
It was like having an intravenus injection of Jack in preparation for all the jack-liteness coming up!
Since I'm coming in late, everything has mostly been said. So I won't bore anyone with any in-depth analysis or anything.
But I will say that this episode made me appreciate Hammond a whole lot more, and basically fulfilled every wish I could have had for an episode such as this. Great recurring characters, great lines, great Jack, realistic doubts...the plant
