Tuesday 24 Wrap Up 10 PM – 11 PM

Gunshots and tortures and lies – OH MY!

Not getting your way? Think someone is holding out information? Then follow the Wayne Palmer school of diplomacy: Threaten to nuke a Middle East country. I don’t know much about diplomacy. Nor about political theory – but I’m pretty sure the concept of nuking someone to get them to talk isn’t really listed in the “Top 10 of Negotiation Tactics.”

But that’s just me. Check out the rest of the irregularities after the jump (announcement of Audrey Raines still alive not-withstanding).

But that’s just me. On with the show.

Ok. Did anyone see this coming? I mean, I know we have an arm-less Gredenko still out there catching waves under the Pier (probably dead, but apparently, counting anyone dead is soooo last year), and Prez Logan is still being rushed to a hospital because of the crazy First Lady, but to wrap up the day with 7 hours left? Jack isn’t supposed to get the nukes. Jack isn’t supposed to kill Fayed. What’s left?

Cue the Chinese.

Amazing timing those Chinese have. Must be their watches – precision timepieces and all that. How else would they know EXACTLY when to call Jack, and make the demands? Must be the watches. Seiko are Chinese, aren’t they? I’m gonna go buy a Seiko, and set the alarm to go off “when my arch-enemy is at the moment when he thinks all is OK with the world.” And then I’ll make my phone call to Sandy.

So Audrey’s alive. Good thing she has something to fall back on since “The Nine” was cancelled (note to self – find out what the heck The Nine was all aboout). Yay. So for the next 7 hours, Jack has to steal the suitcase nukes, get them to the Chinese, save Audrey, steal back the nukes, save the world, and deal with Audrey and the other chick who is the mother of Jack’s son. (What is her name, I can’t seem to ever remember??) Whoa. I think we just entered the realm of “A guy’s worst nightmare.” Having to deal with the current girlfriend (whom you thought was dead) and an ex? Not cool man. I worry for Jack in the coming hours.

One thing I learned in college from working 18 hour days on productions is one of the best ways to keep yourself refreshed if you’ve been running around for hours on end is to just change your socks midway through. It really helps. I think it would be nice if Jack just stopped by a Walgreen’s or something, picked up a pair of socks, and changed them. I bet not only would he be a little peppier, but he would also speak in a real voice again.

Favorite quote:

Damn Jack.

How else would Ricky Schroeder sum up Jack killing a dozen men, and asking if he’s all right?

And I know that workplace romances are a hot topic in the news these days – but I’m pretty sure the writers covered the dangers of such in Season 1. Jack and Double-Agent Chick – the one who killed his wife? Yeah – that about sums it up. I really don’t care if Milo’s feelings are hurt. Or if Nadia comes back next season. Just wrap it up with a “Hey – can we just work together” speech – and move on?

I think putting Karen as NSA is a good reason why women shouldn’t have that position – every decision is based off emotion and crying. She’s always on the phone, on the verge of tears, wishing she was with Bill…. C’mon. Stand up and do your job. And if the President doesn’t trust YOU with a bluff – then really? What purpose are you serving?

And for the record – Wayne and Audrey SHOULD be dead.

And also – did the end up killing the General’s family for lying, and tipping off Fayed? I would.
