    Finally, after a day where Jack Bauer is shown with the shakes from doing H to get involved with the Salazar brothers, plus breaking out one of the Salazars, and running into Nina, and then having to contend with a viral outbreak of epic proportions, the day finally to going to come to an end...

    Jack & co. have really piled up the bodies this season. Let's review the list of the departed:

    Hector & Ramon Salazar
    Claudia (the girlfriend)
    Ryan Chappelle
    Nina Myers
    Sherry Palmer
    Alan & Julia Millikan
    Gael Ortega
    Michael Amador
    Marcus Alvers
    Lots of folks in the hotel (virus victims)
    Lots of henchmen of the various baddies
    Tony Almeida's career

    So who will be added to the list tonight??

    Edit - add:

    Stephen Saunders & his L.A. courier
    Chase's hand
    David Palmer's Presidency

    60 minutes! (well, 40 or so, if there is the usual quota of commercials) to wrap it up enough to be satisfactory.

    Then we start watching the DVD of season 2.

    They're killing off all the best characters. At this point, their best bet would be to kill Jack and set next season in hell.

    I can't wait for this one. I never watch/read the previews for 24, but just out of curiosity, I read the tv guide preview and it states that Jack is forced to make some kind of decision.Maybe life-ending for a cast regular due to the contracts of the actors not being renewed?

    Oh damn! That was gee-narly!

    The device was locked to Chases arm by Chase to prevent the perp from running away with it, and Jack wasn't able to get the defusing guys to defuse it, so Jack hacks of Chase's left forearm and runs the bomb into a room with a refrigerator and throws the bomb in there and watches it go "boom" with a puff of smoke.

    I was hoping it didn't go off, and that would have really drove Jack crazy.

    I'm sorry, a bomb that has an arm brace on it?! That Giel would a) keep a 'loaded' gun in his desk, and that b)they wouldn't supervise Giel's wife as she's taking his belongings. And on top of that, the last guy with the bomb just 'happens' to have a bomb with a different configuration then the others... I can only suspend so much disbelief in one episode...


    ...and were is the split screen?

    Its amazing how all these people without security clearence are led right into CTU central operations where they can see whats going on, whats on the computer screens etc. There is no way, NO WAY, that uncleared people would be allowed in an operations room even in an adjacent office that has windows into operations.

    I was a bit let down with the finale.

    I don't think Jack was crying about Chase... more like whats happened to this show. That's my interpretation anyways. [​IMG]

    Actually I thought Jack was about to shoot up with H at the end when he gets into his SUV.

    Couple of almost Alias-like inanities, already mentioned, but damn fine ending to the day. (Tho was anyone else afraid Jack sitting in the cab was gonna reach for his ___?)

    But big WHY : why didn't Jack ask Pres Palmer for a pardon for Tony?

    Actually, I kept saying to myself:

    Find a sink and fill it up with water! Find an aquarium, Jack! Dumb.

    Nah, it might have been like soy powder - bubbles of powder rising to the surface, breaking open, refusing to mix with the water no matter how hard one stirs... too risky.

    In an alternate world, Tony gets sent to a co-ed prison where Nina is still alive, and,...and it's a musical.

    Anyone going to miss Palmer?

    Also, I am unsure of how this works since this is my 1st year to vote, but...

    If Palmer drops out, does Wayne go head to head versus Keeler for the election, or does Keeler win be default now?

    I think they would still have to vote for him first. [​IMG]

    The party Palmer belongs to would probably find a new candidate.

    Man, Chase got to that operating table awfully fast! Everything must be about 3 blocks away in LA!

    Besides that, (and a few other nit-picks) I think it was a pretty good season.

    I know they'd have to vote for him. But I was wondering if the Vice Prez takes over as the lead candidate or if something else happens?

    Caleb as the lead candidate? LOL! (For those who don't watch "The O.C.", the VP also plays Caleb on that show).

    Or another type of movie... bow-bicka-wow-wow... [​IMG]
    Overall, it was a good ending to a mixed batch of a season. I'm hoping that they can set up some great storylines to expand on in the fourth season. Even though this and Alias have already ended on a level I think that's beneath the original quality of the show, we still got 4 more weeks of Shield at least! Since I'm a consumer whore, I'm still going to be buying all these on dvd.
