Tuesday 24 Wrap Up – 11 PM – 12 AM

Nobody puts baby in the corner. Or Audrey.

And no one tells Jack he can’t take on the White House. No one.

And once again, Jack Bauer goes rogue. And the US Government is tracking him down… With all their resources. And Karen perfects her, “Oh My! I’m shocked, disgusted and acting!” face.

Come on, join the joyride – it’s a wild ride that asks, “Is she really worth it?” After the jump…

So Chloe is back in the good graces with the producers, eh? Must be the only reason she gets lines this episode. If I were Chloe, I’d ask if I could get another role to play in the show, something other than, “Jack’s Little Helper.” I feel like if the did a live action taping of the puppet-Christmas show, the one with Rudolph and the elf who wanted to play a dentist, Chloe would play the elf who wanted to be a dentist.

Here’s the excuse that trumps ANYTHING for any reason why you should/shouldn’t do something:

Because Jack said so.

So sober Morris is a hero. Everyone loves Morris. And he now takes the moral upperhand with Chloe? Come on! Why is it that recovering alcoholics always know better than you? They always “see things” more clearly – after the fact. Go fuck off Morris – after everything Chloe did for you, your LUCKY she still crawls into bed with you.

And 24 provides us with Rule #245,670:

If you are ever in a position with a couple of grunts, or low-level soldiers, you just run in with a “Presidential Order” and tell the grunt that he is “wasting your time”. And you yell a lot. And then, as the final straw, you ask him his name (although normally it’s written on a nametag on his chest) you ask for it – strongly. You can get whatever you want.

Sigh.

So… anyone else think it interesting that Jack says he wants to talk to, “President Wayne Palmer.” I mean… He’s the ONLY President Palmer, right? And what’ up with Ricky? He’s acting like he was time-traveled back into Silver Spoons, and acting all “It’s the President!” and “It’s Bill!” Chill out kid – you’ve got Jack in cuffs – just be cool, like Curtis would have been. And how does EVERYONE know what an FB Circuit Board is? This is the first I’m hearing of it….

And it only took 5 years for Bill to realize he can’t trust Chloe. Of course, that’s the Pot Calling the Kettle a Nappy-Headed Ho. How many times did Bill break the law to help Jack? Don’t you think that by now someone would have the decency to say, “Jack makes a good point, maybe we should trust him.”? Oh well – if they said that, there would be no more drama…

Ok – so the VP is getting a little on the side. Officially. Eh. I’m sure he could do better. For some reason – the blonde just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe it’s because with complete abandon and disregard she threw out the Constitution, and was so willing to lie to the Supreme Court- Nah. I just don’t find her attractive. Whatever – the good news is this time the VP is getting some, and the Prez is in the clear. Well, except for that conveinent display of name-jumbling, word-slurring and fainting. Tell you what Mr. Hot Shot President – next time you do a Press Conference after falling into a coma as a result of an explosion (which you were all of about 4 feet from) and then woken from the coma, and then taken about 2 gallons of adrenaline – you do a Press Conference in which you say, “All Clear! Everyone come out now! Goodnight Gracie.” And then you just go back to the Oval Office? Huh? And I wonder if the un-shredded still-written letter will show up before 6 AM. Thoughts?

Here’s a quandry. Jack always does what he says. He’s a man of his word. That’s what 24 has been teaching us for 5 years. If Jack says he’s gonna take you down, he’s gonna take you down. If he says he’s gonna blow himself up, he’s gonna blow himse-. Oh. Hmmmm. Oh well, we’ve got 6 more hours to see how he gets back at the guy who tortured him, save the girl, and get another pardon for all the laws he broke. Yay! Jack is better when he doesn’t have the full resources available to him! And when he’s fighting for love.

Can anyone say, “awkward love triangle?”
