Surprisingly, Kim Bauer wasn’t in this episode. Instead, we were treated to a LISTSERV round-table of shadowy figures reminiscent of Doctor Claw. Where is this all going?
I have no idea.
It’s beginning to feel like the season has peaked, both in story and excitement. I no longer feel the urgency of a threat, like I did earlier with Juma and Jonas.
Jack’s impending death is continually teased, yet he already signed on for Season 8, along with the guy who hosts “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” in Slumdog Millionaire. So we know Jack will be alright.
Tony is no longer limping after shooting himself in the leg less than two hours ago, and, amidst his plot for world domination, he finds the time to take a shower next to the body of the dude he suffocated with the shower curtain. Is this the first time someone showers (or takes a leak, eats a snack or sleeps) in 24 history?
I’m glad to see Chloe is back (How is she in a hotel?… Wasn’t she still being held at FBI?), but why wouldn’t Jack ask for Morris to help, too? In fact, Kim, as annoying and incompetent as she is, worked at CTU, too. Why not get all former CTU members in the D.C. area to come help?
(Anybody else think Chloe and Morris’ extended farewell is teasing imminent death?)
The preview for next week doesn’t look that much more exciting, either. I dunno… how will this all end? I’m losing interest more and more each week.
