Hour 12 to 1 am: "I'll do it for my country"

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.

For a moment there I thought Audrey's father was going to cut a deal with president Logan. So much patriotism from him really surprises these days, I know there are politics as good as him but they don't have the power, go figure. Now on the scene where he beats Jacks senseless I was like: "wow, look the senior go", the secretary of defense must have some training as a green beret or something, Jack never knew what hit him. But on the keeping the tape in a safe place he slipped big time, safe place is a box with all the security gadgets you can think of not the pocket of one of your bodyguards.

Jack showing weakness before Henderson?, well, I think he did, he didn't have to give Henderson the recording, Jack has left people die for less.

Mike Novick is finally back, I was partially wrong blaming him on having some participation on this season plot, I say partially because till this season is not over I won't be able to tell.

Finally somebody thought of the Chinese, way after posting Jack's mug shots with the police and other enforcement agencies, president Logan wants to keep everything about Jack under wraps. I don't know who was stupider, president Logan for saying such thing or Mike for swallowing all of that without questioning.

Chloe a pickpoket?, somebody tell me what this girl is not able to do, way to go Chloe!!!!, escaping from CTU without raising anyone's attention or an alarm is something even Jack have been able to do.


Where Chloe got that jeep liberty from?, you can see she owns a Toyota prius at the beginning of the season but she never used it to get to CTU.

The helicopter Henderson used to go and try to catch Jack is the same CTU helicopter we have seen before but without the decals, you can tell from the id on the tail of the helicopter, I'll post a capture for you to see it.


Where is agent Pierce?, Martha got his phone at the stable for them to meet but no signs of him at all neither on the preview. And once again Herderson and Jack meet again, Jack is down by 3 against Henderson so he has to work hard to redeem himself.

Hour 11 pm to 12 am: See Jack Run

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.

Despite the fact there is a confessed killer statement on president Palmer death, president Logan orders the capture of Jack because of "new evidence". This really disoriented everybody but orders are order and nobody will question the boss even when he seems crazier than a goat.

Evelyn and her daughter must be having a "big sleep" after Henderson's visit, I don't know how many times I have the write about the senseless killings on this season but at least they didn't show the carnage.

The part where they show NSA agents being duped by Audrey was priceless, they say CTU did an aweful job but they are not pulling anything good either.

Jacks never stops to amaze me, the idea to get the cops involved to create a diversion and escape was one more proof that Jack Bauer IS the man.


This is mostly what you didn't see, Mike Novick was out on this episode too, could he be the puppeteer?, what could he have against president Logan?


Chloe coming out of the bathroom being questioned by Miles on what she was doing:

"If you want the details I'll write you a report".

-Simply genius.

Agent Pierce asking Jack whether is there something he can do to help, Jack responds:

"Keep your eyes open and watch your back", Jack could have said: "resume your activities", at the end agent Pierce is Secret Service, he is supposed to do that.


Audrey's father is seen briefing president Logan on his involvement in this season's events, maybe president Logan will say: "Remember, craps rolls downhill...".

A 24 season 5 quote

Chloe: "Sorry Jack, we are thermoscanning the plant not the entire neighborhood..."

A classic....

Hour 10 to 11 pm: Welcome to Logangate

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

Finally we got to know who is behind this day events: President Logan, better rephrase that, President Logan?????, he surely fooled a lot of people with his awkward ways and the buffoon face, but, does it make sense?, for me the answer is a 50-50 split yes and no, yes because the guy is a tool and somebody is using him, that's a fact, never forget he asked President Palmer for help at the half of season 4, the guy can't think for himself so someone else is doing the thinking, president Logan surely will reap from the benefits of his "master plan" and that is a good REASON with dollars written all over. On the no side I have to say I didn't like the misdirection in the plot pointing to the vice president and not showing in any subtle way how the president was moving his pieces or how he was gathering information, other thing is why he let CTU get involved in the main investigation knowing how effective CTU was, at the end it seems to me he is sweating on the small stuff pulling out his plan, way too much hassle in my humble opinion.

It also seems Audrey lost the battle and the entire war, she may got to keep Chloe around and help Jack but she signed CTU's death sentence. Some serious political stuff, that haven't happened in real life for many years, need to occur for CTU go back to business, that may involve Audrey and her father quitting to their jobs due to misjudgment on the CTU affair, that would invalidate their signed assessment but that is something yet to be seen, nobody gives up that power that easy.

And again Henderson gets away, this guy has more luck than a four leaves clover, running from a rain of bullets delivered by Jack and Dwayne he keeps going and going and going as the energizer bunny. It must be a buyers market for mercenaries out there, he promised president Logan to assemble another team and finish what is yet to be done.

How going against the president could conflict with Jack's principles?. Jack is a company man, he has given up his entire life to help the presidential office, he even turned himself to Logan after apprehending "Walt the Weasel", will he try to put president Logan in jail?, will he pull one of his "maneuvers" to force Logan's resignation? Or will president Logan deliver Jack to the Chinese?.

And where in the retreat camp is Mike Novick?, have been him the guy feeding Logan with info?, remember Mike is VERY good getting updates and finding what is going on, a personal hunch tells me Jack will end up killing Mike.


It was more cursing than noooo!!!! what I yelled after knowing president Logan was the big cheese behind this season's plot. Henderson told Jack about opening a pandora's box, I'd say more like a cuckoo's clock.

24 imitating life?, I don't wanna get political here but the coincidences are too many to ignore, 24 writers use great technical consultants and seems political advisors are on their team too.


You can see Jack in a "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid movie" final scene like situation, trying to leave a bank with a real army waiting for him outside is not goint to be an easy one for Jack, but when it doesn't eh?. I can hear Jack saying: "Chloe find me and exit..." and Chloe replying" "damn Jack I'm a computer analyst not the operator from the Matrix movie".
