Hour 7 to 8 pm: Fly by night drones

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.

Is another nuke down, two to go.

Jack saves the day one more time applying his piloting skills. Although Jack crashed and burned, the nuke didn't go off. All that happened was a radioactive leak powerful enough to leave you as impotent as an United Nations army general.

Who patched the drone's pilot with CTU's computers?, was is it Milo?. He "helped" Nadia regain access to the system. In times of despair and confusion, the weak, the different and the outcasts are to blame, else ask the people from the unnamed country that are about t be blown till next week, courtesy of the trigger finger itching vice President.

We got to learn about Audrey Raines death in China. She was using "back channels" (didn't make that up, watch the episode) trying to free up Jack. The government was afraid to rescue Jack and a puny woman with well put pants got to courage to at least give it a try, tsk, tsk, tsk, CTU, shame on you.

Jack is now driven to avenge Audrey. Seems like a never ending loop for him. When we think he is done, another bomb goes off in his life. Hang in there Jack.

The comedic releif was provided by Chloe giving Morris a pasionate kiss just to check whether he was sober. After realizing what happened Morris said, CTU, you gotta love work here. I agree, CTU, love it or leave it, when they raise the lock down.

In memoriam of President Logan (like somebody cares)

Seasons 4-6
Beloved crook, Nixon impersonator and wife beater.
Better than your common president, that's for sure.

Hour 6 to 7 pm: We are all a little bit crazy

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.

This episode introduces us to Mike Doyle, a new cocky control freak in CTU's field operations. Starting with the wrong foot, old Mike is in Milo's top list: Who I will send a live grenade for X-Mas. He might be good but being an ass to people just for the sake of "getting things done" is totally wrong, you attract bees with honey and nothing else.

Jack on the other hand, spent lots of time hiding from the army o wacky Russians that were after him, that was either a BIG basement or the guards were somehow "slow". Trying to call CTU to report Gredenko's location in the Mohave desert was at some point laughable, I'd buy the complete lock down, but consulate employees without cellphones?, seems they don't know the Soviet Russia tanked some years ago.

What did it take to stop a nuclear holocaust?, a call to a girlfriend. This will revolutionize the way to do world politics, forget the meaningless reunions at the U.N., get rid of expensive consulates and diplomatic envoys, give every first lady in the world a phone with great long distance rates and see how things will get done. Thanks Martha, you really shined on this episode, where the Vice-president failed, you conquered, way to go girl. And like a great matador you left the scene thrusting your kiwi knife on your ex, that my friends was THE exit.

Fayed delivered the nukes to Gredenko and a literally "Firebird" will soon cross the friendly skies. Who will be the lucky city: Paris (Texas), Reno (Nevada) or Branson (Missouri)?. Just as a technical fact, the drone they will use, codename Predator, can fly for up to 30 hours, that will cover a distance up to 6510 kms, do your math and see if you have to give a call to your real state broker.

And the end marks the departure of our "beloved" president Logan. Thy who kills by the sword, dies by the sword. We'll miss you NOT!!!!.

Hour 5 to 6 pm: In soviet Russia, consulate Jacks you

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.

Not happy with the vacation at club Chinese Wall, Jack goes commando at the Russian consulate. His commitment to the job deserves our admiration, is either that or Jack developed a kinky sense. The tricky part of attacking the consulate wasn't facing lots of angry Russians armed to the tooth, but trying to call CTU to deliver an update on Gredenko's location, can you hear me now?.

President Logan as always doesn't accomplish too much, telling Jack the Russian consul was holding information was something Jack could figure out by himself.

Lennox understood the hard way, there is no way they will pin the bunker bombing to the government but Assad. All it takes is a guy that doesn't speak the language, although Assad was very well spoken, to put the scapegoat label on him.

Getting the Arabs blamed for the attacks is Gredenko's ultimate wet dream. As an extremist, he didn't put too much thought into his plan. There is no perfect crime, and there is no perfect war crime either, with his approach, all he will get is the tomb of his mom blown away to Siberia, because more sooner or later the Russians would pay for what he did.

The episode ends with a blast, we see Assad going down in flames, while the president gets a bath of shrapnel. Who would have known that so little liquid explosive could react in such violent way?.

Did you catch the code the activate the bomb at the press room?, 624, or in simple words, season 6 of 24 ;).
