Live Blogging: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of ... As the President turns...

Check back in at 9:00PM EST as we rejoin Jack and the gang at CTU.

We're in recap time - just so you know where we're at. Jack's dad is a ruthless SOB, and we know Jack didn't fall far from the tree. Ex President Weasel is somehow connected in all this... and fade to black:

Shadowy Russian talking with the Islamic terrorist, and Russian thug assistant isn't happy that they're working together, foreshadowing of events to come? Terrorists double crossing terrorists? Well, if the US government can have moles within moles, why not?

So, what is the backstory between the Ambassador and Bashir?

4:07: Jack calls in to explain that things are complicated. Five block perimeter and where exactly are those cops going to come from? Wasn't there a nuclear blast in Valencia earlier today?

Weasel brokered a deal to get obstruction of justice and is under house arrest - now that's American justice for you.

Jack also promises to explain to Jack Jr. exactly what the score is. Jack 1. Rocket Romano 0.

So, moving back to the latest conspiracy to kill or maim a US president, Numb3rs is tied up and the heavy is helping to deal with him. Numb3rs is going to wish he was back on Ally or with FBI protection right about now.

And fade to commercial at 4:12PM - tick tick tick.

Why is it that the conspiracies to take down the President are so complicated? You would think that they'd have learned KISS in evil business management school. Keep it simple, stupid!

4:16PM: What's with the new music? And the Chad is certainly having problems keeping a story straight - any one.

Al Bundy needs to get on his A game. Thank goodness RPF is standing over his shoulder and leaning in every now and then...

A tortured Al Bundy who knows that he helped let terrorists detonate a nuke in Valencia is still better than 90% of CTU tech staff? What is this? Amish Tech Support?

4:19PM: Weasel finally meets Bauer. Again. Weasel isn't the same man he was? Oh really? Russian consul general Markov is involved. Backchannels - meaning getting Weasel back in the game?

I don't trust you. - Now that's understatement.

4:24PM Jack phones in soon to be ex-President Palmer to ask for a furlough. Of course, Palmer doesn't like this. Figures.

There are serious trust issues here.

4:31PM Meanwhile, a box truck carrying yet more henchmen arrive at an aircraft dump site, and they've got a new toy?

Chiggy is busy handing out assignments and Bundy isn't happy that his job is being reassigned to others. He fights for his job and wins. Chiggy's decision stands. Not quite the same as when he was on the USS Saratoga - don't question his judgment.

Meanwhile, Chad Lowe and Duck Tape are busy preparing to assassinate soon to be ex-President Palmer.

*** Commercial break time ***
So, anyone think that the Silver Surfer will help fix what ails the Fantastic Four? Help with those trust issues? Dunno, but the effects are pretty neat.

Will someone please help Weasel clean up? A photo of Red Foreman's one true love in happier times. One step at a time. Yeah, we can count off steps until you're tossed from the roof of a building.

4:43PM: Al Bundy has been lying about the AA. Not a good sign for his drinking habit. Marching into a men's room isn't worried. It's obsessed.

Or the start of something mighty interesting?

Numb3rs is busy applying logic and reasoning to a conspiracy. Nice stuff. Chad is starting to get jumpy. Binary liquid explosives? We know how that worked out in Die Hard with a Vengeance. Press 624 Enter. 10 feet radius. He can do this.

Because this hour is super super slow, I'm going to have to do something to improve the mood.



Yes. That'll do nicely.

Attention on deck. Assassin in the room.

9:53 Soon to be dead Ex-Palmer is questioning Chad about the whereabouts of Numb3rs, and that's going to spell bad news for all involved. If only Numb3rs was just a bit taller. Duck tape states the obvious - why keep this guy alive.

Bashir figured out that there was a bomb. Now, did he make it out alive? He's cutting it close. Bashir looks dead. Palmer? He's down... and call in the medical team.

Sheesh. I could have condensed that entire episode down to one word. Slow. All the action saved for literally the last five seconds.

Well, whoever picked no points for the kill counter will be pleased to know that they were right. Those hoping for Jack to get his mojo back are disappointed. But, we have the potential for another ex-Palmer. An even trade? I don't know.

That's all for tonight's episode, stay tuned for V the K's tivo recap, which will probably be distilled to one thing - lots of Kim pictures, because there wasn't much else to do.

Back awake just in time.

...and you're still first

Tyler D. said...

Unless someone knows how to program in C++, my comments will be light.

The Man said...

I smell transition episode....

good luck Lawhawk, remember to post that picture I sent you.

MediaShuffle said...

Get on the phone, MAKE this happen!! Oh yah tell him like it is.

steveegg said...

If that pic is of the person I'm prepping to pim...er, promote, by all means post the pic ASAP.

MediaShuffle said...

Jack really means: I will tell you who your real father is.

Everyone drink when they have another awkward...Josh is your son moment.

The Man said...

Use #122 fpr duct tape.

lawhawk said...

if you sent me an email with a photo, I didn't get it yet...

steveegg said...

President Chapelle definitely is Dead Palmer Walking.

MediaShuffle said...

Jacks no girlfriends are angels...

lawhawk said...

steve:

Dead Palmer Walking? We've been here before. We know what to do. We have a plan. [ed: we do?]

V the K said...

Need a nickname for Rodent Boy's goon. Suggestions.

MediaShuffle said...

Wrong slot assignment, oops.

And what about your sponsor.

steveegg said...

We might have a plan for that, but I don't know if breaking out Dawn's Early Light is the right one.

Al Bundy getting abused again.

Mark the Pundit said...

Anyone else catch the Victoria's Secret ad during the break? Because so many women love this show...

The Man said...

The guy can reprogram a nuke but cannot get his SIP adapter to work.

The Man said...

Lawhawk...I sent it again.

MediaShuffle said...

Someone call that number.

Johnny Park said...

Nadia ALMOST smiled, if only in a sarcastic, "one slip and it's your man's ass" kind of way.

MediaShuffle said...

changed!

steveegg said...

That number sounds familiar. Didn't Gradenko have that number last hour?

I guess pissing off Putin is safer than pissing off our "friends" in the Middle East.

The Man said...

"Back channels" = torture...

MediaShuffle said...

Wiesel is good at back channels.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

Trust Logan? Doesn't sound like a good plan to me.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

V the K:
You are good at the nicknames. What did you come up with?

steveegg said...

How far can we throw the bearded weasel? Divide that by 10 and that's about as far as he can be trusted.

The Man said...

Rodent Boys manbitch's nickname:

Duck Tape

MediaShuffle said...

Exploit...yeah Wiesel your good at that.

steveegg said...

I give that nickname 2 wings up.

The Man said...

Enough of this crap. Where's Martha? Where's Red Foreman?

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

Yah, where are Red and Martha???? The good guys!!

steveegg said...

Duck Tape giving the Domino's Bomb guarantee - Dead Palmer no longer walking in 30 minutes or the next one's free.

Anonymous said...

Duck Tape is Clark Kent with a lisp

MediaShuffle said...

Nadia is going to stab Buchanan in the back.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

I say dead man walking is going to survive!!

Teacher Tori said...

this episode sucks...i'm bored

steveegg said...

Is it just my not-quite-perfect HD signal or is Russet Potato Face ripening?

The Man said...

Check out the post. I added some eye candy for you bored kids out there.

Anonymous said...

"Do I have to drill that into your thick head, Chloe?"

The Man said...

MARTHA!!!!

steveegg said...

Nice. No wonder why we've got Jack Jr. to pick on.

Tyler D. said...

I was thinking... that is going to be really funny when she finds him in the bathroom taking a #2.

tuffbeingright said...

busting in on a guy mid-dump is simply unforgivable

The Man said...

She won't let Morris eat Altoids and now he cannot take a crap without her. What a nag.

Mark the Pundit said...

Yeah, I knew he was not just taking a dump.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

Chloe in the men's room!!!

steveegg said...

Typical gubmint work; put the men's room sign on both sides of the door.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

I don't like that Logan is pretending to be religious.

My husband thinks Logan will think he is free once he steps on Russian
soil.

Mark the Pundit said...

Is he gonna bite his neck to get away? Um, no...Jack Bauer he ain't.

Tyler D. said...

tuff, I compiled that... 5 logic errors.

V the K said...

I'm thisclose to re nicknaming Awana Fuqya to "Marcy Darcy" the way she's dissing Al's.

The Man said...

The red highlighter should have tipped off security. Who uses a red highlighter?

Mark the Pundit said...

Hey? Is this the bomb from Die Hard 3?

tuffbeingright said...

tyler, it's the thought that counts.

and besides, it blogger couldn't take certain text in brackets, which it thinks is html.

that might have cut it down to 4 errors :)

V the K said...

You know, all this time on the stupif "Is Bundy drinking" subplot is taking up valuable time that Jack could be using to torture Logan.

steveegg said...

I would second that re-nicknaming, but then I'd wonder why Marcy got implants.

V the K said...

OK, He's on the toilet. He IS Al Bundy!

The Man said...

Useless Fox5 24 story:

"The show's hardest critic"

What?

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

I predict Duck Tape won't last long because he's a regular on another show right now, Lincoln Heights.

The Man said...

Miss Blogs4Bauer Update

Mandy (81%)
Sherry Palmer (19%)

steveegg said...

That wasn't the Miss B4B portrait I was hoping for, but I'll take it.

I love the plot spoilers the bad guys keep feeding Numbers.

Dr. Bashir has left this continuum.

steveegg said...

No silent clock; guess Dead Palmer Walking is still going to be walking.

OH MY...

MediaShuffle said...

lose fingers...ouch

The Man said...

Next week: Jack infiltrates another foreign consulate

USpace said...

absurd thought-
God of the Universe says
cut Russian's fingers off
.

Teacher Tori said...

maybe the russians will kidnap him and put him on a blimp

steveegg said...

It would be an even trade if soon-to-be-President Jim Jones advocates we cut the head off the Sovi...er, Russian Chicken.

steveegg said...

Dunno about anybody else in the Kill Counter Pool, but I do recall The Man taking zero (because I had to then go and grab my standby number).

steveegg said...

Now, how much money do I have to spread around to get the expected stock random pics of Kim replaced with random pics of Michelle?

The Man said...

Steveggg - I chose zero this week... I smelled boring episode.

steveegg said...

I KNEW I should've jumped on that bandwagon. Next week's pool is going to be a guessing game on whether Jack finishes his business in the Russian consulate next week.

The Man said...

I bet Jack still gets to have some fun with Logan before the day is done.

Hard To Swallow said...

absurd thought-
God of the Universe says
Kim will be with the Russians

steve said...

a huge 24ism this week for anyone interested....

Emperor Palpatine said...

Of course you realize if we have another ex-President Palmer, the NAA(L)CP will be all over 24 for killing two African American Presidents and letting the white one off with a wrist slap.....

NDwalters said...

OK, call me crazy, but the trailer shows some US official handing over power to Powers Boothe. Is it just me or is that same actor who played the Warden in Shawshank Redemption? Bob Gunton?
