My problem with the Chinese supposedly killing Audrey, the fact that they still have her, and Palmer in the next ep saying to Jack he can't afford an international incident with the Chinese is that it already is an international incident. It's not like Audrey is an ordinary citizen. She worked for her dad who was Sec of Defense. IIRC, her daddy is still alive but no where to be found in all this. Not unless the gov't wrote her off as going rogue when she left to find Jack. I guess we'll find out next week how the writers work this out...

Audrey can't be "the price."  Audrey "died" long enough ago for it to be public knowledge (his sister-in-law was the one who told Jack, no?), and long enough for autopsy photos to make it back to the USA.  Weren't there newspaper clippings as well?  The terrorist activity had only been going on a short time when the show started.

I think Chloe said it was 2 months before the start of this day.

Ok, last night's episode was FREAKING AWESOME.  Best episode this season, and one of the best any any season I think.  It did so much for Day 6.  Just what 24 is known for... I didn't see the turn of events coming at all. 

Thank you Jack Bauer for making my week.

I gotta agree, last night's episode was fantastic!! Wowey wow wow.

The whole bluff by the President was fantastic. I just gained a whole new respect for the man, especially his willingness to sacrifice himself till the situation is resolved! I mean he knows is Daniel's in charge, all hell will break loose!!

efranks, I was like no ******* way when their truck got hit, but when Jack and Doyle were downed, I knew something was up! What a masterful plan by CTU, too bad the General tipped them off, hopefully he gets what's coming to him!!

Jack is a one man killing machine, no backup, no hopes of backup, but he knew what had to be done!! Taking out the guards one napped neck at a time, and then one bullet at a time, leaving him one on one with the mastermind!! That hit with the wrench definitely made me flinch, ouch!

And finally, Audrey Raines is back, and the final season takes a whole new direction, almost like a new season!! I can't wait for Jack to unleash hell on the Chinese!!

On a side note, what's up with Milo, me thinks he is a controlling person, and will end up hitting Nadia! Oh and speaking of Naida, way to go on catching the General's warning, too bad it didn't help the agents!

In the preview, they want some component....I can only guess it's some part of the two suitcase nukes.

I do have to give the show some credit...they gave Jack about 15 seconds to relax...the most in just about any season, except for season 1 where he ate something.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Another WOW episode! Kind of see-sawish.

-Jack's gone rogue again. I like that he told Doyle that he had a hard decision to kill his friend (Curtis) earlier in the day because C got in the way of Jack's job and would hesitate to do it to him.

-Palmer collapsing during the address was predictable, especially since VP Daniels was just going to serve his resignation notice.

Well, there's 7 more episodes left, I wonder what else is going to happen with rescuing Audrey... maybe Jack goes after Papa Bauer, too?

AWESOME.  I really didn't think that Palmer would have another "episode" again, but he did.  The only cheesy thing was that it was on live TV. 

Bauer.... wow.  Chloe... wow.

Can't wait for next week.  Kick ass. 

24 is BACK.

I thought this week's episode was pretty good.  I'm looking forward to seeing Jack get out of CTU soon and going after Cheng Zhi... and I'm waiting for Jack's dad to emerge back into this season.

VP Daniels is really turning into one hell of a character on the show, I'm glad he's in the spotlight right now.  His scenes are just awesome... Powers Booth has such a commanding presence on the screen... I'm going to have to watch Tombstone again soon.

Yep, good episode.

Can't believe Heller told Jack to stay away from Audrey... she isn't 15. Chloe is all heartbroke now that Morris told her it was over.  :'( Hopefully Morris sticks around. I like his character.

I'm kind of shocked that there hasn't been any mention of ex-Pres. Logan's death/murder by the media, VP Daniels, Pres. Palmer... whoever. Yes, there is terrorist acts going on, but the death of a president is big news!!

I also think that Jack's dad will have to come back around... I mean he's a bad guy, killed his own son, betrayed Jack and was in on killing all Jack's friends. His time is coming due!!

Yeah, I'll bet Buchannan won't be so pissed that his wife fired him now.

Lamest ending ever!!

Everything was good until Jack hit Sec. Heller's place...that just totally brought everything way down.. Audrey is a veggiee...big deal.  It kinda looked like Jack was going to jump over the cliff - and I'm kinda wishing he did after the piss poor way they ended this series.

One thing I really liked though was the split screen with Jack & his father - It kinda looked like they felt each other's presense as in Jedi.

It's pretty obvious that the Chineese will be back for the next day though.
