Hour 7 to 8 am: If life dishes out lemons...learn to make lemonade! ......

ATTENTION: Some spoilers ahead, if you live in a place where season 6 of 24 is not broadcasted this is the wrong post to read.

Jack is back on the job after 2 years, and is taking care of business as he only knows.

If you want to catch a thieve you have to think like one, and getting Assad to work on catching Fayed seems like an obvious move. Think this is a new one for Jack, but the work needs to get done, there is no room from prejudices, and Jack knows it. Although if I was Assad I wouldn't turn my back on Jack.

Before even thinking that Jack is getting soft just because he thought the guy who betrayed Assad was telling the truth, just have in mind all the traumas Jack has on him: he lost his wife mostly because of him working at CTU, got betrayed by Nina (somebody he trusted), he got to see Mason die just to save him, he lost his friend and "boss" David Palmer, suffered an induced heart attack while on duty, got a 2 years paid vacation in club knuckles in China (all the beating he could have included), and lost his two best friends, Michelle and Tony. Even the strongest steel breaks with thermite.

The whole sequence on the metro train was simply awesome, the way Jack pushed the S.O.B. out of the train should get him another chip on his shoulder. For a minute I thought the train officer was going to pull Jack aside for not having a fare ticket with him, but common sense ruled over duty, and Jack took care of the threat sad not everybody out there is like that.

The comic relief goes to Milo and Morris fighting over Chloe. She has to be a real daemon in bed , because of the looks and mood swings of previous seasons, I wouldn't have touched her with a 10 feet pole.

Now this Ahmed (aka Kumar :D) , after being helped from being beat by his front neighbor, he pulls a gun on his kid, what a jerk. When you need an example on how screwed one has to be to put everything that matters for a "cause", you can only refer to this guy.

More "new" characters

Sandra Palmer, the sister of the president working for the Islamic-American Alliance?, Dwayne doesn't know where he is stepping onto.

Mr. Albazani, the Islamic-American Alliance leader in love with Sandra Palmer?, my tingling senses tell me something will happen to him and Sandra will screw a major operation, only wait seated.

What's next

A guy in the FBI will get his ass kicked when the day is over, messing with the sister of the president is a big No-No for a career in the government.

Another leprechaun to chase could lead Jack the big pot of gold...

On this season, CTU's only job will be to annoy Jack, the way they questioned him on Assad being the main culprit tells one of two things, they want to cover their asses on the assessments they provided to the president or they are simply stupid. Nobody that spends $25.000.000 + whatever they gave to the Chinese should never ever doubt the "product" they are getting, in this case Jack, good till the last drop.
