I'm waiting for the cougar to show up and catch Dana. She's had 2 emotions this year - constipated and pissy. The storyline is an insult - if she was a stone cold killer, she would have offed the deadbeat ex and his friend hours ago.

Glad Renee got out of Jack's apartment and back into the story. But seriously - they shot at each other for 50 minutes and she took out 2 guys within 30 seconds? Should have kept her on scene, the rods would have been locked down, CTU wouldn't be EMPed and President Pompadour would be off looking pensive. :P

I'm more in complete shock that I can wonder in this thread and not be spoilt as in the UK we are getting the episode aired a couple of days after it goes out in the US!!

I have loved the series and would continue watching if it was to continue but I think they've done all they can with it now. We're starting to get similar/same storylines with slightly different biological/nucelar threats, one mole, one kidnap, one duh-duh-DUH oh my god that character's come back...it's all getting a bit "by numbers" now and the "shock/surprise" things that happen are not really shocking or surprising as we now expect them.

I think films would definitely be good, but fail to see how it can translate across to the cinema - like someone said will it be called "2". Without the "real time" (which is getting more and more stretched nowadays anyway) it would just be another Bourne-type film (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I wonder if it might lose some of its appeal. I can't see what storylines they could come out with either.

I was worried about this season retrogressing into its usual twists, but this most recent two hour episode was just...wow. They've only had the silent clock a few times, and it just drove home the drama.

Now the biggest question is "Now what?"

I noticed the silent clock, too, and went hmmnnnn..... now what does that mean? I enjoyed the episode, too.

Regarding the real time thing, I noticed the clock on the split screen is right in synch with my DVR recording time until somewhere in the last 10 minutes. At that corresponding commercial break, the time on the 24 clock jumps forward about 4 minutes. :rolleyes: They never used to do that, and it was annoying me when I noticed it was over well before the end of the hour on my DVR clock.

I thought the plot lines supposedly ended last episode were done for good, but there were so many interesting developments.

But then ending to this episode...the set up for it was long and obvious, but I both love and hate the writers for it. I felt like throwing something at the TV, but in a good way if that makes any sense :lol:

I knew it was coming and I still got REALLY pissed when it happened. Then I got even madder because I couldn't enjoy the acting because I was fuming.

Very unsatisfying. :angryfire

I think it's still speculation. In any event, the producers said they would never kill Jack. :lol:

I laugh out loud every time I see Bollywood guy's hairdo. He's apparently a huge star in the Bollywood movies. Different cultures have different aesthetic values I guess.
Does he play President Hassan? I wonder if it bothers people who are of Middle Eastern or South Asian ancestry that Hollywood considers them all interchangeable?:rolleyes:

Yep, I *knew* that person would die as soon as the "commitments" started being made...and I'm not sure if I like or hate that it was so predictable...

Well, who would have guessed that Chloe would end up in charge? And doing a good job at it!:lol:

I, too, was not surprised at the death in the episode. Interesting that the clock has gone silent for the last two significant deaths....

Anybody still watching? I have been enjoying it a lot, and I think Kiefer's been doing a :kickass: job this season. I was surprised and yet not surprised when he killed Dana in cold blood. That's the first time he's murdered someone outright, when he wasn't threatened in some way or someone else's life wasn't at stake, isn't it? Jack has done a lot of bad things but that has to be the worst.... Also really interested in Logan's part in the day's activities and really want to just smack Taylor upside the head for being so stupid. You just know this isn't going to end well....

I was giggling when I realized Dana managed to die on a sheet of plastic. Very convenient for Jack. However, Jack may think she killed Cole. Or he's totally unbalanced since losing Renee. Or he was as sick of her storyline as we were? :shuffle:

Not happy with what they've done to Taylor. This is a woman who let her daughter go to jail and lost her husband and she decides to go evil with Logan? Total character turnaround. :wall:

This week was the best episode of all time on 24! (Because, come on, that Dana wench SOOOOO deserved what she got, and actually, he was kind and did it quick, unlike what she would have gotten from the other team)

Maybe the series ends with Armageddon! ;)

I felt a little sick watching the torturing scenes this episode...

I don't actually *watch* scenes like that. I do other things while they play, so I can keep up with the story line but not subject myself to that sort of thing - just not my thing at all.

Funny, but I had planned to start catching up on 24 until I saw a preview commercial for this weeks episode and could see they were getting into a torture scene - so I :dog: ran the other way
