There is something truly sad about us having to make note of them actually executing such a basic step.

Can Jack, Tony and Red take down... Candyman?

They flew through the standard 24 cliches this week much faster than they usually would.
Actually, season four had the fastest "the authorities let Jack go when they find out he's on the level" moment. Remember when he was pretending to be the gas station robber with the CTU-standard ski mask he got from the back of his vehicle and he was following terrorist guy? At the end of the episode the highway patrol had him surrounded and he surrendered, but at the very beginning of the next episode they were letting him go.

I must say, "Chloe made backups" was one of the best twists 24 has done in a long time. It's gotten to the point where the bad guys not thwarting every lead is a twist!
Yeah, I really liked that! I was so sure we'd spend another 3 episodes trying to get that list back or get Dubaku to wake up so he could talk. Glad it didn't go that way, and that Sean was caught pretty much right away.

After seeing last night's ep, it was clear Dubaku was supposed to be soft. He risked way too much for the girl he obviously really loved, and he was willing to give up the info so that Jack wouldn't hurt his son. A different kind of baddie, at least,

I watched with a friend last night, and he thinks Tony is actually really bad and working against Jack--and is setting him up. While before this season I didn't buy for a second Tony would go bad, since seeing him this year and seeing how bitter he's become, I actually could see that being the case. There's a lot of little things in the way he's been acting this season that (unfortunately, because I love Tony!) could add up to him being a bad guy. I'm curious to see where it will go. My friend thinks the season is leading up to a big Jack/Tony showdown, and I could easily see that being the case.

I still don't understand Mole dude's plan with his set-up of the crime scene.

He plugs Flighty Heidi in the gut with the gun, OK. Then he plugs himself in the arm with the gun at point-blank range and then he slides the gun over to FH's body?!

And his excuse is that FH shot HIM and then he shot her back in self-defense? ?!?! With one gun between them? (Thus both bullets having the same tool marks) and the gun is beside her?

I mean, did he flunk the "Setting Up a Crime Scene" course in International Terrorism/Espionage School?

^^Not to mention how easy it would be for them to check the fingerprints on the gun, and that gun powder residue on the hand test they do on Law & Order all the time. Either Moleman is a complete idiot, or the FBI training program needs some SERIOUS work.

It was definitely a badly set up plan, that's for sure. Nice to see the good guys didn't look like dopes for falling for it. I thought Larry Moss looked suspicious of him the whole time!

Who wouldn't be suspicious of that guy, though?

So anyone think Die Hard at the White House will be just about the most stupid thing this season?

Quite the opposite.

I realize it's not really important to the conversation, but did anybody else notice the guy who plays Dr. Beardface on Scrubs had a cameo as a doctor in this episode when they were trying to save Dubaku at the hospital?

Why do I get the feeling that Bill is in on something here. He was awfully insistant on getting the President back to the white house, just in time for next weeks assult.

I really hope that's not the case since I love Buchanan so much but it's certainly a possibility since the producers are clearly cattering here to the most ridiculous things they can think of.

It wouldn't make sense for Bill to do everything in his power to stop the bad guys, only to switch sides for their contingency plan. But then again, 24 did the same thing with Logan where they made him bad for the sake of shock value.

I'm sure Bill wouldn't expect the entire White House to be taken over by 10 bad guys. Maybe while this is going on, Candyman sent three of his men to take over the Pentagon.

It had better not be Bill.

I can buy that it would be Tony, based on how he's evolved this season, and a lot of the backstory. But Bill? No.

Anyone wonder what happened to Karen? Is Bill still wearing his wedding ring? I haven't noticed.

I gotta say, I really miss CTU. This whole rogue operation thing is kind of interesting, but I hope it doesn't go past this season.
