Being on the road I had to wait until this weekend to see 24 from last week, and then before I knew it tonight’s episode was upon us. I find it really interesting Jack’s brother turns out to be his arch enemy from seasons past. They guy is definitely a little dweeb. I am looking forward to next week’s second round of torturing (some characters simply deserve it).
And speaking of characters that deserve it, I find it hard to believe the lady heading up CTU (sorry folks, tired and its late) quit. Me, I would have been in El Presidente’s office explaining how the head of Homeland Security was blackmailing people at the peak of a nuclear crisis. But that’s just me. If I am going out, I am going out swinging. Besides, the President would be much less worried about some old news than “the squirrel’s” naked ambition. I think the guy is from Ghost Busters II, and I can’t help but get that image out of my mind. He deserves the Bauer treatment as well.
The ‘who is the turncoat in CTU’ game went into high gear with the announcement of the (totally fake) revocations of security clearances. First off, you are in or out. You never let someone with a potential grudge on your system. That is why people on the way out are IMMEDIATELY shown the door with pay for at least two weeks. They cannot do damage. But no matter how frustrating it is, never use someone else’s ID to log in. If you are logged in under fradulent circumstances you are the one who will be the target of all suspicion.
Anyway, great season – as expected.
