Logan to the rescue!? I thought I’d never hear Logan say, “but Martha”, in that whinny freaking voice again. Or, maybe it’s just that I wish I never heard it. Since when does a murderer ex-President get what he wants? The powers-that-be seem to be satisfying his every whim. Lame. Plus, I’m tired of Martha’s issues. I hope she doesn’t get too much screen time. However, Erin Pearce can get as much time as he wants. EP is a bad man.
Martha lost her mind and stabbed Logan in the shoulder. My prayers have been answered! It was still great to see it unfold. Don’t get your hopes up, however, Logan’s not dead. Hopefully, we can see him suffer a little more before he goes.
Did you try turning your back on Curly Bill (Vice President Daniels) while he’s talking? When he laid down the law to that ambassador it made my skin crawl. I’ll bet he reeks of brandy and cigarettes. Very creepy.
Jack escaped captivity. Once again, d’uh. He’s like a deadly MacGyver. Give Jack a stick of gum and a paperclip and he can take out a small country.
Mike Doyle (“Chucky” - Yes, because he looks like Chucky all grown up) is not the gentle giant Curtis was. He’s busting heads and taking no “stuff” from anyone. We might see some alpha male clash between Jack and Mike in episodes to come. I’m hoping this injection of testosterone will lead to more action on the show.
Things to Expect Next Week: Jack Bauer’s rib “injury” will be a distant memory. Jack Bauer will allow Charles Logan to live…just so he can kill him later. Jack Bauer will do 50 one-arm pushups.
Things not to Expect Next Week: Jack Bauer will not comment on the Feng Shui of the CTU office. Jack Bauer will not tell people how he feels. Jack Bauer will not tiptoe through the tulips, literally or metaphorically.
