It's a good thing I'm feeling so much love for Agent Pierce, because the obligatory Audrey-Jack-Diane (oh, hey, "Jack and Diane" — I didn't notice that until just now) love triangle maintenance is killing me. "Is it true what she said — that you still love me?" Jeez, Audrey, is now really the best time to discuss this? When your just-returned-from-the-dead ex is on his way to a clandestine meeting with the president's chief of staff? That's like the CTU equivalent of asking your boyfriend to run out and buy you some tampons just as the game's going into overtime. It's only a matter of time before we hear, "Jack, does this security clearance code make my butt look big?"Oh, and McGill? You just got served. I still don't know exactly what your relationship with Buchanan entails, but are you just gonna sit there and let him call you a punk kid in front of everybody? You're Rudy, for crying out loud — let's see some of that fighting Irish spirit, huh? That nerve gas isn't gonna find itself, you know.
