Ladies and gentlemen, readers of all ages, my mind has officially been blown. Mystery Bluetooth Man is Jack's
brother? Of all the possible answers to "Who's this weasel pulling President Logan's strings?" that we contemplated last season, I'm pretty sure I never would have come up with that one. I still have no idea who the former
Rocket Romano's working with (or for), but I can't wait to find out. We know he's got issues with Jack, both professionally (to surveillance guy: "We should have killed Jack when we had the chance") and personally (to his wife, the ubiquitous
Rena Sofer: "You weren't over Jack when we got married and you're still not"). But beyond that, nothing but question marks. Meanwhile, I guess Jack's little crisis of faith has passed for the time being; mere minutes after stepping down from his post as World's Most Bad-Ass Hero, he was back in action scaling apartment buildings and hoisting helicopter-crash victims to safety. (Cue awesome explosion.) And this may say more about me than it does about Jack, but it wasn't his trademark rooftop heroics that convinced me he's back in business - it was that moment when he ripped the cord from the lamp to tie up brother Gray, all in an effort to track down their "old man." Something tells me a Bauer family reunion doesn't involve burgers on the grill and a friendly game of bingo. Or if it does, there's a lot more, you know,
actual torture. Speaking of which, as graphic as the interrogation scenes can get on this show, I have to admit that the bloodless image of Gray fighting for breath through a plastic bag may be about as disturbing as they come.
Meanwhile, Fayed's looking for an engineer to help him detonate the other four suitcase nukes; the man who sold Fayed the weapons knows a guy who knows a guy, and his girlfriend's a little cranky (and not quite yet relevant); the President's finally been moved to his bunker for safe-keeping; despite a lot of back talk from Sandra Palmer, Walid's been bullied into wearing a wire for the FBI, and he's making friends on the inside; Assad's work here has been done, apparently, but not before he earned the begrudging respect of Bill Buchanan; and we still have no information on the whereabouts of the greatest secret service agent who ever lived, one Aaron Pierce.
Seriously, Bluetooth Guy from last season is Jack's
brother. I'm just sayin'.
