The last few episodes have been pretty good- both with Sloan's photo subplot, the Africa incident and, now, the Genoa framestory coming to a head. Given the real events the Genoa storyline is based on (Operation Tailwind), Jerry's actions aren't that surprising, but they made it feel so. On the whole I'e also been surprised by how much time this season has covered- last season they stayed about 2 years behind reality, but now they're a year or less behind. That would strike me as limiting the impact of characters' reactions to events, but I suppose they could slow down a bit next season to compensate. Sorkin said in an interview that the season's focus was meant to focus on the events leading up the revelation, as they wanted to show how, given the information known at the time, how people could come to a similar conclusion. I would assume that is why they've been slow-burning towards the revelation.
