Haven't watched the Prison Break tape yet, so I have nothing to say about it yet.

24, on the other hand, sees Logan getting more and more evil by the week, showing that he was just playing dumb for the first few hours of the day. I really hope Jack puts a bullet in his skull, because he's got it coming now. And Heller, you MORON, you should have listened to Jack.

Chloe's Jame Bond theme is very annoying. Jack Bauer armed with only a gun against a dozen special ops agents is hardly a fair fight. He should have had one tied behind his back or something to even things out. BOOOOO to Christopher Henderson for trying to kill Audrey before Jack can get his freak on with her again.

Things are getting TENSE. Yes they are.

Shouldn't Michael have some sort of bandage on his hand? He did repeatedly punch a concrete wall. Yet there he is, playing with dough and shoving his fingers down guys' throats with nary a care in the world.

I never thought of that, but you're right. His hand certainly heeled a lot faster that his back.

But I loved Haywire thinking he was smarter than Michael, only to set off the alarm and get caught. Like Scott said, it's a battle of wits against the unarmed.

And how can you not love T-Bag? "Full House. A concept you Mexicans should be familiar with."

Also, C-Note's friends notice he is hanging out a lot with T-Bag, and the rest of the (mostly white) work crew, but the dudes running the card games don't. And what do you know, C-Note and T-Bag join a game and one of them winds up winning everything.

Also I have a new Prison Break drinking game. Take a drink every time the female doctor, who is the *Governor's daughter* and already been in mortal danger during the riot, is left alone with an inmate. Happened *again* last night (w/Mike).

Jesus, how stupid can Heller be? He handcuffs Jack and his daughter and leaves them behind KNOWING that Jack is the target of a huge manhunt orchastrated by Logan, who he knows is a traitor using secret covert operations to carry out murders left and right. What the FUCK was he thinking, other than completely underestimating Logan. Heller, you complete dumbass!
Jack, as always, was awesome this episode, and delivered a great line ... "Our government HAS no integrity!"
Chloe delivering that pyschiatric threat to Sexual Harrasement Panda was pretty damn funny, even if her escape from the room was complete nonsense. How stupid can Miles be?
Maybe the Homeland guy and Heller can take a test Billy Madison-style to see who's the dumbest.

Indeed. I never thought Heller would be dumb enough to fall into the "Ignore Jack and suffer the consequences" trap that so many others have. Now, he's lost the recording, lost his job, and his daughter is bleeding to death. They never learn on this show. Once again I feel like Homer Simpson watching McGonnical yelling at the stupid chief (or Heller in this case).

"It means he gets results YOU STUPID S.O.D.!!!"

I can't believe that Jack would really give Henderson the recording.

There's gotta be a twist there.

The thing that's bugged me the most about the last 2 weeks: Why hasn't Jack just downloaded the audio proof to his magic/alien PDA and send a copy to the attorney general. Dude can get satellite images downloaded in real time, but can't transfer a freakin' audio file? C'mon JACK!!

I'm guessing that the attorney general isn't on Jack's speed-dial. He also mentioned that he has no cred with the A.G., which is why he needed someone of Heller's weight behind him.

What's bugging me is this - even if he's not sure anyone will believe him, how about slowing down the manhunt or at least throwing a sliver of doubt into it by contacting Karen at CTU and sending a copy of the recording to her?

Aaron is one of the few characters who should be going out in a hail of gunfire while killing terrorists with his bare hands and banging the first lady. If he was silently killed off camera outside of that compound somewhere I'm going to be pissed.

This is slowly becoming my favorite season on 24...I hope the last few hours go crazy. The only gripe I have is how the hell Bill Buchanan got to Jack so fast? But hey, that is one small gripe to a tense episode.

I love how they've build building up T-Bag, SORT of redeeming him in a way and having him earn audience respect, then out of the blue they bring back a pissed off Abruzzi whom T-Bag tried to kill. Awesome. Also, this escape team is getting BIG, I got the tally at 8. Too bad they all wont make it out.

Jack clearly should have emailed Scott asking for a plug...that would have spread the audio tape across the nation.

Why didn't Henderson or whoever just immediately kidnap/torture the mother who had the tape?

I'm enjoying this season a lot as well. I think scott addressed it earlier in the season, but i think the general theme is that Jack is going to lose everything he cares about: tony/michelle, palmer, his daughter (sort of), audrey, and his faith in his government.

----------------------------
That would only work if the season ends with Jack and Chloe having angry, grief sex with each other. Given that Chloe is the only cast member who's been confirmed to return next season, the writers might as well go and give us fans Chlack (Chloe/Jack) as a couple in order to give Jack a reason to live next season.....

I don't think anyone knew she had the tape, as it wasn't mentioned by Henderson until after he had already been to the hotel.

but they knew she had something, right? when did logan or henderson know of her involvement? was it "today" and thus they couldn't kidnap/torture her while she was in the white house? if so, i can live with that. but if her daugher has been kidnapped for more than 1 day, then it doesn't make sense.

The woman was Logan's wife's secretary/keeper and if Henderson had kidnapped/tortured her then it would alert FLOTUS that something was up and possibly would have resulted in Henderson being exposed earlier in the game than he ultimately was.

Kidnapping her kid gives Logan absolute leverage against her without having to get his hands dirty and allows him to ensure Evelyn stays quiet about what she knows about Logan's involvement in Palmer's death.

I was thinking about Jack's losses this year the other day, and yeah, he's lost everything, and I realised that if Kim dies, he has absolutely nothing left. And after a single day where all your friends and family are murdered, and your government has fucked you over, wouldn't it be feasible for Jack to just want to end it all?

Sure, I would rather Jack go down in a hail of gunfire like the greatest action hero of all time should, and I'd even settle for a random sniper shot at the end of the season from the Chinese, but it does make alot of sense for Jack to grab a gun and take his own life.

It's make sense, he's got nothing left. But we shall see...
