Firstly, I knew there was gay kissing...but OMG! how come no-one told me it was that hot?!?!! There is more of this, yes? I loved the way Chris way eyeing up Nick whilst he finished his rant - that would have been so perfect to slash - but hot!kissing is probably better still.
Ok, now that the important stuff is out the way, the plot was pretty good too. There was a lot going on, I feel like I need to watch it again to fully grasp it all (not that that's a bad thing). But why is Nicholas (*sighs happily*) keeping things from the Ambassador? And WTF was up with those soldiers killing the other soldier and dumping the body - that was just creepy! The death row storyline promises to be interesting. *crosses fingers*
Like the plot, there were too many other characters to have opinions on yet. But I definitely didn't like the Secretary for Defense - why would they appoint someone with such an obvious personal agenda? I'm still undecided on Sinclair. Maybe because of my slash goggles or maybe because I knew there was a canon gay couple, Mark/Sinclair seemed glaringly obvious. But he's also looking a bit like a crazy person - using some poor kid to get his way and was that him following Mark at the end?
And since I've been so good and not even mentioned it once - God, Jason Issacs is pretty!
