Well, last week Lynn and Random-Redshirt made the ultimate sacrifice, Lynn by shutting down a computer program that was locking Chloe away from the thermostat, and Random-Redshirt by bravely sitting on the floor looking worried.
But it was enough to save the rest of our survivors in CTU, except apparently for Tony, who once again proved that he really really wants to be Jack, but just… isn’t.
At the rate the writers are killing off long-time main characters, they may have to bring back Driscoll to run CTU, because there won’t be anybody left. Will they resort to searching for the nerve gas cannisters with a chemical-agent-sniffing cougar? Or should they just put a tail on Kim? – the cannisters are bound to show up wherever she is.
My guess is that Henderson (aka “Evil Buckaroo Banzai” or “Evil Robocop”) will grab Kim as his hostage, since he’s loose in CTU after doing some Soulpatch-killin’, and she and her dork boyfriend/therapist Barry are on their way out to the parking lot. They went to the trouble of establishing that Henderson checked in on Kim while everyone thought Jack was dead, so he’ll probably exploit his connection to her and snatch her up to use as a human shield or an insurance policy.
Whooooaaaaa… Jack double-crossed Stoller. So, Homeland Security Bunhead will be happy with him after all, but he just pissed off the Germans.
And Bunhead’s threat. “There will be repercusions.”
Sheesh. Jack should have said, “Fine, bring them, bitch. I’ve already been forced to fake my own death after somebody in the U.S. Govt tried to assassinate me so that they wouldn’t have to turn me over to the Chinese. So, what have you got to top that?”
Holy crap. Now, Jack is on his way to torture his girlfriend.
Except, I think that it was probably made to look like she sold it, but she’s probably being framed, just like Jack was.
And I’m quite sure the Veep is in on it, at this point. Or perhaps behind it. Aaron was the one who called the roadblock to have Wayne Palmer let through (I’m pretty sure), but just before that we saw the Vice Prez hearing the phone call about the person at the roadblock. It’s got to be the V.P. behind the attack on Wayne…
Hmmm. I’m fairly sure that my flash memory cards can’t be programmed to self-destruct. And while it’s vaguely possible that CTU has a stock of Mission-Impossible style self-destructing chips, wouldn’t it be better to have them just scramble the data and have the victim think they were a victim of bad luck rather than have it shoot out sparks?
Yet more incredible time compression. Five minutes after the President decides to declare martial law, there are troops on all the roads. How long does it take to mobilize troops?
The immunity paper for the female agent (Collette?) got signed and faxed in amazingly record time. Of course, by now, CTU probably has a standard form for that.
Fifteen minutes after getting out of the safe room, CTU employees are back to work as if nothing had happened. Didn’t even seem them carting bodies out in the background. When Chloe spills water on the guy, he snarls “What’s wrong with you?” Oh, nothing, just a normal day at work…at CTU.
We just know that we haven’t seen the last of dashingly grundgy German agent guy.
