    THE FOLLOWING TAKES PLACE
    BETWEEN 7:00 P.M. AND 8:00 P.M.


    Jack Bauer Body Count: 3

    The Bauer family is back into peril. So the general theory is that Jack is the one carrying the virus which begs the question why is Salazar taking him back to Mexico? Is Sherry coming back tonight? Regardless, I hope this one is better than last week's. Season 3 has been greatly lacking the punch Seasons 2 and 1 packed. It feels different.

    The Questions

    1. Will David Carradine unleash his cougar on Kim before the eyes of millions of relieved fans?
    2. Will Jack be back on smack tonight?
    3. Is Tony getting out of surgery tonight?
    4. Will Little Palmer and Anne butt heads again tonight?
    5. Is Teri really dead?

    Find out on an all new 24!

    Three letters to describe what I thought at episode's end...WTF?

    Very twisted. Is this the last episode before X-mas break?

    I guess it all sort of makes sense, and certainly helps explain away a few very serious plot holes that were open before.

    It also caused Kim's bumbling idiocy to go from making her a hero (discovering Guyell(sp?)'s treachery) to being a bumbling idiot once again stumbling upon something she shouldn't have.


    The body count is dangerously low for this season, however...

    Damn! That was good!!

    Michelle really flaked out, but Kim and Chase are coming into their own.

    And Dark Ops everywhere, an X File feel, Chapelle is so far out of the loop he's starting to look like Linley in Alias [​IMG]

    Nice little twist at the end.

    So Hector thinks Jack is bad but he's good and so is Gael. Alright. Now the thing about Gael being in the CIA makes sense.

    Tonight's ending was what I would term "Classic 24." Until Jack hit his watch and the PDA started beeping, I had no idea what was going to happen. I'm glad there's one more week before they take their Christmas break.

    So...
    There was never any virus. The plan all along was for Jack to break Salazar out of prison and go undercover again.
    Jack, Gael, and Tony were the only ones who knew.
    Then the whole "virus" thing was put into motion between Jack, Gael and Hector.
    Singer was just a dead end, a reason for Jack to take matters into his own hands and get Salazar out (which was the plan all along)
    I remember Gael trying to stop the guy from shooting Tony, so that was the reason for that, and also the reason he didn't shoot Kim, just tied her up.
    Questions:
    What would make Jack want to reestablish his cover?
    Is there another major terrorist group out there with ties to the Salazars?
    Sound right to anyone else? I LOVED this episode. The show finally hit its stride, and shocked me this season.

    I agree withe the above posts, I loved tonight's episode. Tony waking up and demanding to go to CTU was classic. I'm very happy to see him back in the action.

    Chloe still annoys the hell out of me, and the Pres's story is the weakest part, but maybe (hopefully) there will be a good payoff.

    I really can't wait to see where the show goes next.

    You want to know who has ties to the Salazars?

    The rich guy responsible for last season on the boat..the one who ordered the hit on Palmer


    It makes perfect sense now really. Think about it...there is no way that they would leave such a cliffhanger from last season without some explanation (the explanation in the premiere is obviously weak on purpose). Keep in mind that (from Season 2),

    the guy on the boat had a German accent


    and we know from the finale of Season 1 that

    Nina worked for Germany


    Since both the real question marks from Season 1 and 2 (who are these people and their real motives?) have been left unanswered, my guess is that:

    the Salazars have connections to the guy on the boat and ultimately the faction that Nina works for in Germany,


    thus tying Seasons 1-3 into one nice tidy little bow. Keep in mind that on the deleted scenes from Season 2 on the DVD set, they show

    Nina with the guy on the boat
    ...therefore it seems clear that the writers wanted to plant that seed at the end of last year, but instead decided to run with the red herring of the virus plotline
    in order to have everything make a bit more sense since the Salazars will just be a conduit to the ultimate terrosit group of all three seasons.


    Makes sense to me at least! Or, at least this is my theory :b

    You gotta think Palmer will be pissed off about this when he learns of it. He basically threw the debate to help Jack out, when it turns out there was no threat at all! He went against his brother to support Jack because he trusted him more than anyone else.

    Random Thoughts-

    Best episode of the season, with Chappelle as the MVP. It was great seeing him pull out all the stops to break down Gael, only to be shocked to find out(as we do), about the "master plan"...

    Palmer's storyline is making him seem weak by taking orders from a political novice like Little Palmer. Bring back Mike Novic, and bring him back NOW...

    Chase has really grown on me recently, and I guess he can now be seen as the "wild card"...

    Did anyone really expect for Tony to make his dramatic reentrance into CTU as quickly as he did?? I'll admit, I had goosebumps...

    Anne going to see her ex makes me wonder if we're gonna see the patented "rape attempt"...

    Chloe gained some ground with Kim, and was able to force a smile...

    Finally, Re: "Master Plan"

    Couldn't see it coming, but I'm betting it was in place long before the beginning of the season. The only thing I wonder about is having just Jack, Tony, and Gael be in on it, and not Chase. That seemingly could solve a lot of future problems. It is definitely starting to seem to me that Hector is a little slow on the upchuck, which explains how Gael and Jack manipulated him at will. I wonder why such a big deal was made over Kyle Singer if he was clean all along, as even Hector's men were making sure to clean themselves properly after handling him.

    I will agree that all this is leading to "The Guy On The Yacht", as well as "Operations From La Femme Nikita" and (hopefully) Mandy, Nina, and Sherry. I know I'll be watching...

    This episode answered a lot of questions but opened a flood of new ones. I'm glad there was something more to the mole.

    There is a virus though - remember the dead guy in episode one.

    I am confused about one thing. Tony and Jack had Kyle cornered in the mall. If they capture him then how does Jack get Ramone out of prison? They obviously didn't plan for Tony to get shot and Kyle to escape.

    Man, Michelle and Tony got back to CTU quickly. It takes me longer than that to wait for an elevator!

    Certainly the best hour of the season. I had to chuckle at Gael's little gun. Was it even loaded?

    Do you think Michelle is going to be upset with Tony?!!
