You know, if they're not going to give me an explanation of Tony's deal, I do appreciate that they gave me Tony taking a shower while the guy he killed continues to lay on the floor just outside the tub. Nice to see Tony's over Michelle.

The scene with the Oliva declaring that she'd like Hodges killed and then realizing she could actually have that done is top 10 worst of all time.

Strange for Garafolo to suddenly remember she was on Air America.

Glad not to live in DC!

Yes, the whole thing with Olivia was lousy. Given how impulsive and generally stupid she's being portrayed as, you'd think her mother would know not to give her a position of power.

Had to laugh when 24 told Chloe that Tony was part of the conspiracy, and Chloe said, "That doesn't make any sense." I love shoot commments that aren't supposed to be shoot comments! B^)

The logic behind the conspiracy has a pretty big hole in it to me. So a group of private companies are trying to commit acts of terrorism to force the country to re-evaluate their national defense and become more reliant on these private companies for national defense. Fine. Far-fetched, but fine.

But the key to the whole plot is being able to assign blame to terrorists. Now that the government knows that domestic private companies are the ones behind these attacks and any future attack during the day, there is absolutely no incentive for the government to actually cede power to these very same domestic private companies. And since that's the case, there is no incentive for this conspiracy group to push forward with one more attack to "push the country over the edge".

It would be nice if 24 could keep a small thread of logic alive in their plots, even if it is really thin.

It was stated in the episode that the pressure from the people would force the occurrence. Almost like inciting a revolution, the government would be forced to abandon ship, letting the private companies seize control after they preach that had they not been limited by the government, the attacks would not have happened, and they are the only ones fit to run the country.

I think the logic is that the blame would've fallen on Dubaku, and thus these companies wouldn't have been connected to the attacks. Now that everything has been outed, they're all passionate/crazy enough about their cause that they're going ahead with it anyway. Besides, the only company that's been publicly connected in Starkwood. Also, if this virus is released in Washington, that might well wipe out a lot of the people who know the inner workings of this plot.

I'm half-hoping, half-fearing that Jack's mental instability will lead to hallucinations, and thus some guest appearances by Haysbert, Teri Polo, Sarah Clarke.....really, the sky is the limit for dead 24 characters.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

I agree. Nice character work all around, and that's when this show is at its best. I like where they've taken Chang this season. He's been dialed down just enough so that it's believable (in the context of the show)
