Off the top of my head there were some others. Not counting Chapelle (Jack didn't want to do it, but was ordered to), here is who I thought of:
Nina Myers (I know some hated to see her die, but it was time to terminate her).
Christopher Henderson (Robocop!)
I am sure there are some others that I am not thinking of at this hour of the AM.
Wow .. what a way to end an episode! And I thought a very good one too. Am so glad I stuck with this season when at times I really felt like bailing. Especially with that silly Starbuckmole storyline.
Which gets me to..
Dear Jack Bauer: I know you've had some satisfying kills in the past. But for me this goes even beyond Nina! Yes, of all the things you've done for our country, this was the best thing you've ever done for this viewer .. GETTING DANAMOLE OFF MY SCREEN! YES! THAT STUPID STORYLINE .. SHE IS OVER! I and millions of thankful viewers we, well, thank you tremondously for this awesome display of genuine public service. Too bad it couldn't have been done hours ago. But I am quibbling. Thank you, Jack! We all are now completely in your debt. Again. Yours very truly, Joe.
I know some will say Jack simply was judge, jury, and executioner when he decided to plug (so to speak) poor Danamole. But alas, I got his cutting room floor conversation that didn't quite make it to air. Here is how it went:
Dana: Is there anything I can do?
Jack: Yes, you can turn yourself over to another Arkansas parole officer. He texted me that another redneck relative of Kevin's wants to talk to you. He said that..
Dana: Oh no! <quivering> Not another stupid, inbred, annoying, hic of a relative of Kevin's .. I've had enough of them! I can't take it anymore! Just shoot me, Jack! Please..it's for the best!
And that's when Jack actually shot her. So poor Jack just got a bad edit there.
I actually wondered if he would shoot her. I thought that when they showed her standing in front of the plastic hanging thingie, that she would leap and somehow land on some random van or something (like Terror Boy did at the hospital) and take the evidence thing with her. I mean, she knew she had to be dead once she gave that evidence to Jack. I'd figure she would make one last run for it. Guess not. And I think that last shot that Jack gave her .. it wasn't for Renee. It was for us viewers. I'm sure of it.
There was something I wasn't quite clear about.
I must have missed something. Well, I was answering the door paying for my pizza. But I thought I heard Chloe say something like, "I've never seen Jack this way before. He even threatened me". Or something along those lines.
Really? I don't remember Jack threatening Chloe. Again, unless I wasn't paying attention or something. And I thought he was fairly rational when speaking to Chloe earlier .. for rational for revenge-minded Jack Bauer anyway. Heh. He was trying to expose a Presidential coverup. And for some reason Chloe didn't go along with him this time. To me it's Chloe who has changed .. not Jack.
Loved seeing Logan again. He's looking more Nixonian with each passing episode. Will be interesting to see where this goes. Wonder if Jack will ultimately be the one to confront him and do, well, a Dana job on him as well.
I wonder what Cole's reaction will be. Well, when he wakes up that is. Man, Dana was one paranoid mole, wasn't she? Not only having a loaded gun in there, but some fancy, flash-knockout-bomby thing in there as well. But I wonder if Cole will now go after Jack for executing his former fiance. I'd think the dead body laying next to him would be enough for him to believe Jack did the right thing. But he could also turn all boy scout on us and decide to go after Jack for being a cold blooded murder or something. Well, he is, but he's *our* cold blooded killer! Besides, to me he didn't kill a human being. He killed a stupid plotline! That's good enough for me.
So I guess now we won't know the fate of Prady or the Dumb&Dumber Redneck Twins, eh? Just as well.
Great episode for me. Here's hoping for more Jack-vengenace!
