24: Day 2 10:00-11:00 pm (SPOILERS!)

Wow. That was simply, IMHO, the best ep 24 yet. Even Kim was good.

Don't ever put that name and word together [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. She may be good looking but does basically nothing for the show. Aside from that this epsiode was very good. Only thing I hate is that we have to wait three weeks for a new ep. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I make no apologizes [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Kim was good as she fulfilled her only true purpose: being Jack's daughter (or Spawn of Kiefer if you are TWOP-inclided) -- as opposed to the butt of every joke of a storyline the writers come up with at 3:00 am after way too many Twinkies with a stale moka java chaser.

All hail Mason! I'm sorry I called you a "twit" last season, man *sniff*

Re: 24: Day 2 10:00-11:00 om (SPOILERS!)

I think this was definitely one of the best episodes I've seen and yes, even Kim was good. That scene with Jack telling Kim he had to go down with the plane was well done and very emotional. I was sad to see Mason go down, but at least it was a noble end for him. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I guess the direction of the show will now be focused on discovering who was behind the bomb and their motives. I also have a feeling that something is going to go wrong on Air Force One, likely exposing a traitor in the President's midst.

Re: 24: Day 2 10:00-11:00 om (SPOILERS!)

I would agree, last nights show was the best yet. I was thinking last night about the reporter that the Whitehouse retained ( I can't think of his name) anyways once he was released/escaped he then talked to the press. The thing is after he talked to the press about 3 or 4 hours ago shouldn’t you see mass panic on the streets of L.A. , or am I remember this wrong. Anyways a great show last night and so far this season has been great.

KABOOM!

I never thought I would say this but I was not annoyed by Spawn at all during this episode. Shocking, very shocking indeed. Plus, that whole nuclear hoobajoob going off. Now begins the real intrigue. Is the recording fake? Ok, so if you saw the promos, then you know the answer to that one. Who's Mr. Shadowy dude? Will Kiefer be able to stop the war? Will the Cougar come back and eat Spawn (Please, Lord, Please!)?

Kim is definitely better with a gun - she put Mr El Camino right in his place.

I knew (as did we all) that Mason would save Keiffer's skin, but I have a real problem with him waiting until there were only four minutes left to jump out of the plane. It was stated that the plane could top 200 mph; 4 minutes would put Jack 13.3 miles from ground zero. All through the series, they've been talking about getting out of the 50 mile radius of LA. If Bauer had jumped at the 12 minute mark when Mason first revealed himself, he would've still been only 40 miles from ground zero. That bomb was no "dirty nuke" built in a cave. It was the real deal - the worst case scenario, and Bauer was just too close.

Next, we'll see the aftermath..... in another damn 3 weeks!

Re: 24: Day 2 10:00-11:00 om (SPOILERS!)

Several things:

1) Great episode!

2) Yes, I agree with everyone else. Kim was NOT repeat NOT annoying at all. In fact I thought the actress's (whatever her name is) performance was just about perfect. The scene when she was on the phone with her dad was really done well. Maybe she didnt have much of a reason to be in Season 2 up until now, but that one scene was a BIG reason she has been in it thus far Id say. Well done.

3) I think we all knew that Mason was going to sneak on the plane. But it was still a good scene with him convincing Jack to jump out. Sort of reminded me of Lorien in a way "Its easy to find something worth dying for, do you have anything worth living for."

4) I too had an issue with him bailing out 5min before it went off. Yes, the mileage didnt work out so well. While it was a built nuke, they never said how powerful it was. Granted it wasnt a dirty nuke, but it may not have been a enourmous one either. In any event, as described above, he was probably 12 some miles away and even if it was in this crater in the ground surrounded by mountains, that was too close. Also Jack would likely have still been in the air parachuting down when it went off (unless he HALO jumped). They should have had him bail with 10min intead of leaving it till 5. Minor detail in the grand scheme of things though.

Now lets get to the spoiler stuff for the future. Here are some of my guesses for the rest of the season.

I think there are 2 factions at work here. The first may be Stanton. Perhaps he did intend to let the bomb in the country, and have his team disarm it, and embarass the President to make a power play. That is what we have been lead to believe so far.

Now it seems as though there may have been a second group, maybe pretending to help or side with Stanton, but really having their own adjenda. I think the missing Special Forces guy would have been one of them. While Stanton was to believe that the bomb would be stopped, that 1 special forces agent killed Stanton's team and was going to deliver the bomb to LA where it WOULD have gone off. Who is behind it, and why would they pretend to side with Stanton who is making a power play?

Well the "evidence" is one reason. If that evidence is indeed planted, then that second faction wanted the bomb to go off in order to start a war. They had the perfect alibi. It would have been hard to get one of those bombs in the country, so they let a politically motivated Stanton cook up a plan to allow one in, and let him believe that it would be stopped there by serving Stantons purpose, when really the second group would take over, detonate it, and serve their purpose.

It seems that someone is trying to push the country to war. Like Palmer said, his options are going to be limited now. That "evidence" is going to almost force the US to attack those 3 countries. Someone wanted this to happen. As to why, we dont fully know yet. Which is why we have to tune in next week. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I was being a little on the sarcastic side about Kim, hence the smiley. I know sarcasim doesn't translate well over the net but I tried.

I think I remember hearing that the bomb was a 10kt power which is not too small, but not big either, though I don't know too much about nukes and their destructive power due to the charge.
