So now we know what the Chinese want; the Russian trigger mechanism from the suitcase nukes. It seems an internal code will give them access to the entire library of Russian defense technology. Is it worth trading it to the Chinese to get Audrey back? You betcha.
For those of you thought that Jack Bauer was crying when he was talking with the President, think again. METHOD ACTING. That’s right, he was method acting. If Jack were truly crying, only bullets and acid would come out of his tear ducts. And he doesn’t “cry” when he’s sad, only when he’s angry and he needs a weapon. I saw Jack unleash his tear ducts on this guy in a 7-eleven parking lot one time….not pretty.
Cheng Zhi is a marked man. The man who is responsible for Jack’s two long years of torture in the Chinese prison is finally back between the crosshairs. Now, you see, I was right. The Chinese aren’t using Audrey to get to Jack. Jack is using Audrey to keep those Chinese thugs close. Jack doesn’t have time for that long flight to China. He likes his revenge all wrapped up in a nice neat 24 hour period. Ah, the genius that is Jack Bauer.
Since President Palmer came down with sudden brain explosion syndrome it looks like Curly Bill is back at the helm. Get ready for creepy, violent President Daniels to not give a rip about Jack Bauer and his plans to save Audrey. That means it is, once again, Jack vs. the world. Just the way he likes it…
Things to Expect Next Week: More uncomfortable moments with Chloe…great. More sentences from me that will include “…”. More of Doyle getting owned by Jack Bauer.
Things Not to Expect Next Week: Jack Bauer will not participate in casual Friday. Jack Bauer will not refer to his messenger bag as a “man purse”. Jack Bauer will not make a quick stop at In-N-Out Burger before he saves Audrey…but he should.
