Isn't that always the way? Jack's got everything under control until some bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, by-the-book punk comes in and ruins it. Way to go, Doyle. I get the impression we're supposed to be wowed by Mike's expert tracking skills (I mean, Nadia certainly is), but I'm still not buying Mr.
Silver Spoons as Jack Jr. Maybe it would help if we knew
what happened in Denver. On the plus side, I guess we do owe a little credit to Doyle for inadvertently saving Jack's life. Sure, Cheng's got the big bad nuke component and we're about to be smack dab in the middle of a Chinese-Russian rage sandwich, but at least we can rest easy in the knowledge that Jack's still kicking - and therefore mere minutes away from bringing the pain on someone who needs it. He's like the Old Faithful of vigilante justice (my apologies to Chuck Norris).
Meanwhile, I guess that foreboding vibe coming off Bill and Karen a few weeks ago was less about a literal death and more about the murder of Bill's career. And possibly their marriage. I hate seeing a good man go down just to appease Washington's need for a scapegoat, but with the season moving into a whole new arc here in the home stretch, it's kind of refreshing to see the fallout from the day's events. But perhaps the strangest part of this whole political dance is how much I'm suddenly liking Tom Lennox. He's sort of the Simon Cowell of the White House - he's no diplomat, but he shoots from the hip and more often than not, he's dead right. You can almost hear him prefacing his comments with an "I'm not being rude, but.... "
Let's see, a few other biggies: Chloe finds impressive new ways to use her snark to cut a man to the quick, with her snide "how about don't arm nuclear bombs for terrorists?"; Nadia's attempting to fill Bill's shoes until we get a new director of CTU, which should make that whole making-out-with-Milo routine delightfully more taboo (and no less gross); Audrey's one debriefing away from being that crazy homeless woman who talks to her own hand outside the frozen-yogurt place; and Powers Boothe is reaching all new levels of inappropriate in the Oval Office - "Call the media, tell them the acting president's a dirty old man." OK, sir, first of all, your pillow talk needs some work, and secondly...
