  • Three shots, three kills, and Cole is again the man of the hour.

    Jack certainly has a cool set of eyes and hands covering his back and it was good to finally see that the Jack Bauer of years gone by, can still handle himself in a tense situation. The German conversation with subtitles was a nice touch also; a little Bourne-like. There is nothing more attention-getting than Jack pointing a pistol at someone and screaming at the top of his lungs!

    Renee needs more than a shower after her "encounter" with Vlad. That is serious dedication to the mission. Hopefully, the writers will eventually have a "Renee's Revenge" segment. She is very adept at dismemberment with rotary tools. Perhaps an "appendage" removal and then death by exsanguination or maybe a lethal dose of RAD's for Vlad.

    President Hassad is closing ranks and rightfully so. His country is in a dangerous neighborhood. It is beginning to look as if President Taylor can kiss her peace good-bye. If she expects Hassad to totally change his political tactics at this point, all she will end up doing is getting him killed on American soil and then she will have a mess on her hands.

    The Dana/Jenny storyline is like a soap opera clip that was accidentally inserted into the wrong show. If she thinks her sociopath ex-boyfriend is going to stay gone for $120,000, she really doesn't have the instincts needed to work at CTU. The writers need to wrap this thing up and throw it in the East River.

    Jack, Renee, Chloe, and Cole are major players in Day 8 and their storylines need to make up the majority of the remaining eighteen hours. Maybe the writers didn't want to play their hands too early, but the season is a fourth over and its time to show 'em or fold 'em.
