Just got through watching this on myspace and gotta say, wow what an episode!!
First off, I hope they don't kill off President Logan. As much as I hated him last season, I think having him come back added a lil extra oomph to the season. I really do like his character, and how he's trying to redeem himself. I hope he does make it and while still on house arrest, is able to show Martha that he has changed.
On to Martha. Wow, Jean Smart is really playing the disturbed aspect perfectly. I mean you can see how much Logan screwed with her head in the last season. She's doing a great job. When I saw that knife, I knew what was going to happen, but didn't think it would get that far. I knew she would grab it, and thought she would menace Logan, but go through with stabbing him, just jaw dropping wow! But like someone mentioned, glad she was able to compose herself to make the call to Subarov.
Speaking of, I too am glad he made the right decision. I mean after all, his Consul disobeyed a direct order, he knew what he had to do!!
The Vice President!! Awesome, simply awesome!! I knew Curly Bill er Powers Booth was going to bring some power back into the White House! While I too may not agree with what he's doing, it's good to see such a decisive President! He has such a commanding presence and his voice is powerful!! I'm not going to lie, I yelled out Curly Bill during the episode!!
And finally great ending sequence, wish there could have been a bit more, but it was satisfying!! Ricky Schroeder looks rough. Like he's really been through a tough life. I think he will compliment Jack very well. Jack was awesome as always getting out right before he was going to be executed!!
Oh and what an ending, the Russian consulate taken down, Jack freed, President Logan flatlining, the location of Markov discovered, and one drone nuke ready to be armed and launched!!! A cliffhanbger ending indeed!!
