Hour 1 to 2 pm: Taking Justice Into Your Own Hands

ATTENTION: Some spoilers ahead, if you live in a place where season 5 of 24 is not broadcasted this is the wrong post to read.

24 pushed the envelope of evil dom with Russler: an old guy that is a top player in the subversive world with a fixation for young girls?, what else can you ask for?, this guy is despicable, pervert, low and many other things that comes to my mind and I rather not say, good the chick got her vengeance, we all have been there and seen that, remember season 1 and Palmer's assistant affair with one of his hunters?. If you haven't seen season 1 is time to hit the video or electronics store, at least wait for this season to end in order to use it as a bridge while waiting for season 6 (yep FOX has signed for it).

President Logan is officially lost, this gentleman is play-doh in anyone hands and is about to be casted by his wife. She is up for no good and she will surely play a Lewinsky on her husband. Although this is kind of a gut reaction without any second thought will spell doom for her lifestyle, is small price to pay for what he did to her. At least it will send a clear message to president Logan: "Quit Politics!!!!". Where Walt the Weasel failed Martha's will succeed.

Mike learned his lesson when he turned his back on President Palmer on season 2, he will not stand there watching Martha placing him in the unemployed line. I think he most likely "ordered" to kill Walt to take care of the problem from it's root.

So, the Weasel is dead, ding dong the witch is dead!!!. Serves him right, I'm not going to miss him at all, traitors deserve worse.

Seems that in 24 every CTU leader has a troublesome personal life (and who doesn't in real life without being a leader), lets see, Mason's son didn't talk to him, Erin's daughter suffered schizophrenia (I think) and McGill sister is a junkie, is there a connection between being kind of successful and have troubles at home?, maybe there is no connection but work make wonders on keeping people minds busy.

Spencer comes back to the scene as an useful idiot, he helps Jack and Curtis from being slaughtered and all he gets is a kick in the ass, he was following orders and was cleared, he could have gotten a promotion and get to be everyone else boss, but his boss got screwed and that's how office politics work.

Edgar smiling when they took Spencer away?, keep dreaming pal, I don't think you are anywhere close to Chloe's league (if there is one at all).

Somebody said specialization is for insects but in 24 it doesn't work that way, we have had nuclear technicians, computer hackers, guided missiles techs and now Russler as a remote controlled warfare guru. Job market in 24 doesn't suffer of shortages when it comes to evil affairs.

Seems Kim Bauer is set for a return, Jack asked Audrey to get her to CTU for him to say good bye. At least the girl will have some closure after the shock of realizing her dad wasn't dead at all, weird ain't it?.

THE NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! FACTOR:

Although the needed bad guy is killed again, you can't stop from jumping off the seat wondering what the heck CTU is going to do. I give it a 5 out of 10.

THE TINP COMMENT:

Is difficult for me seeing high tech terrorists having phone conversations without any sort of encryption, Marwan used it and made CTU's lives miserable, what happened to these guys, couldn't they buy one of those systems from Ebay?.

Sure land lines are theoretically easier to trace back but using direct communications when they are talking about an "Axis Delivery System" seems a little off, these "terrorists" are either hacks or plain dumb.

Another issue was Jack and Curtis facing a guard with an automatic weapon. Every security expert out there advices to never face a guy if he has an automatic weapon and you don't. More awkward was Curtis getting shot just once.

QUOTE OF THE EPISODE:

"Trust me, you don't want to go down this road with me"

--Jack Bauer before opening a can of whoop ass.

ON THE NEXT 24:

Jack once again is forced to work for the bad guys, we can assume that Jack will break them from within.

What has happened to the guy in the "control room" pulling Walt's strings?.
