Well, don't just sit there-- click "Answer"!
I feel bad for Chloe. Jack asks so much of her to sacrifice. He better send her a huge shipment of flowers after today. That is... if he makes it to the end of today.
I tell you, it's bizarre, unnerving and disconcerting that I'm going to be forced to watch most of--if not all-- of the rest of the season on Tuesdays online now. That'll happen when you're working on a live show Monday nights.
So, let's get down to this week's ep, shall we?
Renee and Larry have their moment-- but who was she shedding a tear for-- Moss or Jack? Hmmm.
Jack's been sidelined, benched, even sent to the (deconamination) showers! Tony takes charge!That should sate the Almeida fans, eh? Too bad he got set up by that weasel Seaton at Starkwood. Is Seaton trying to save face (and his ass) realizing he's a patsy, or is he a loyal Hodges supporter to the end?
It was good to finally see Janis again, even if she was simply running updates around the office.
Aaron stays on!
...who else is worried about this? Especially with the First Daughter pulling these sophmoric backstabbing stunts.
So is Chloe out of the picture, on her way home and calling it a day?
Can Jack get back in the game?
What will become of Moss, Tony, and the FBI assault team? Shoot it out, or leave with their tail between their legs? I have to admit this PMC compound story arc is a very interesting one, and a great new angle for bad guys. Still, I can't believe Hodges has this many people working on a nerve agent on American soil so willingly, with the intent to disperse. I mean, I like my job, but if ABC wanted to suddenly use ballroom and Latin dancing to take over the country, I... wait... I guess that wouldn't be such a bad thing actually.
Finally, I have some theories where this season might end up: WARNING: EXTREME POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERTS!
1. I brought this up in a conversation months ago with a cohort: If they were going to kill Jack this season, the only logical choice to carry on the show is Tony (aka Carlos Bernard). And it would work. Fans love him almost as much as Jack, he's been through just as much hell, and with his working along Jack extensively this season, it would be a natural transition for it to occur. I know, people have said that Keifer is coming back next season-- but as Jack, or merely as an executive producer? (Do me a favor though-- don't tell me-- it'll just ruin the rest of the season if we all know Jack'll manage to save his neck.)
2. Jack manages to corner Hodges and threaten to release the toxin upon him (or actually does), forcing Hodges to fork over the as-yet unseen antidote, saving Jack's life, and bringing Hodges to justice. Or shooting him. Whichever. Either one works for me.
3. Kim returns, and just as the puma leaps to finish her once and for all (baby in arms), Jack plugs it, sending it crashing to the ground, making a nice rug in front of Jack's fireplace.
Anyways, see you tomorrow with a new planetxthecomic!
