      That's exactly what Coolchick said.

      CTU is a hell of a place to work. About 12 hours ago, she was Dana's trainee, having re-joined the work force after 2 years as a stay-at-home mom. She's defied protocols twice to get Jack in, pulled a gun on rival agency members, the office was bombed with an EMP, her supervisor's been exposed as a Russian mole and double murderer (there's still one victim decomposing in conference room B), she's witnessed the death of a foreign head of state, met the President of the United States, and is running CTU. Next we'll find out she baked a batch of cookies earlier, too.

      Chloe is the only one you can trust, and she can run the system.
      In the real world -- no, she wouldn't be put in charge.
      But in the 24 world, she'll be the only one who can (spoiler alert): stop the mountain lion chasing Jack's daughter in the next episode.

      Yeah, but a leader in CTU needs to be able to have people want to do what they're asked, needs to be good with people to coordinate everything and keep everyone working together. Chloe has absolutely no skills for that at all. She is a worker bee, not a leader. Her smarts are about her job, not coordinating all of CTU.

      They know this is the last season, so they threw Chloe a bone. If it went another year... she may have ended up President for all we know.

      im excited for a 24 movie. given that a lot of action movies about terrorism usually take place all within a 24 hour day (for example, Die Hard, or any schwarzaneggar movie), I think as long as they fit a 24 hour days into a 2 hour movie, bring back Jack and Chloe (and almeda), add a hollywood starlet as the damsel in distress, and some sfx, I can see it being green lit as a summer blockbuster.
      of course I would rather see it in the mold of a bourne movie or the latest 007 movies.. I just want to see Jack scream obscenities and break bones on the big screen.

      So Jack just happens to have a paranoid, armed-to-the-teeth friend in NYC who could supply him with com gear and automatic weapons

      ... in 10 minutes.

      I'm sure Jack has weapons dealer contacts all over the place. My guess is he's got friends who deal in that sort of thing all around NYC. The guy he dealt with last night probably just was the closest one around.
      Some of the characters are really being written differently lately.
      Here we have President Taylor changing her positions faster than most of us change our undies. I mean, she goes from telling Jack she won't grant immunity, she must cover the Russian involvement for the sake of the peace treaty, etc. To then getting all wimpy when Ethan talked with her about pulling out of it for the sake of her administration. To then going back to saying it's for the "greater good" and staying with the peace treaty process after talking with Logan. My neck got whiplash from from all the change of direction of her policy (inside of like 15 minutes no less!). It was so bad I had to wear a neck brace for the rest of the episode.
      And why would she and the U.S. have to pull out anyway? Just go forward with it and if the Russians get all pizzy because we uncovered their crimes here in the USA, and they pull out of the peace treaty themselves .. so be it.
      Chloe also puzzled me. She would almost always take Jack's side. She's the one who convinced him to stay on this day in the first place. Plus after Jack tells her of the President's cover up .. she still didn't seem to bat an eye -- that she still decided to set up that elaborate plan to trap Jack. Doesn't sound like the Chloe I used to know and love.
      Nice spidey sense of Jack too to smell out the trap. Guess he knows Chloe better than I do. Enjoyed his little convo with Cole too. But it should've gone like this:
      Cole: "But what if you're wrong?"
      Jack: "You're new here, so I'll just tell you this one .. you will learn that I AM NEVER WRONG, DAMMIT!"
      Something I think Chloe needs reminding of herself. Heh.
      Just speculation on my part, but I still wonder if Agent Ortiz is also a Rooskie agent. It would help make sense of that Danamole storyline. That he would leave and help her despite her "secrets" since they are both on the Mole Squad. Aww .. the heck with it, I can never make sense of that Danamole thing no matter how hard I try!
      Feel kinda sorry for Starbuckmole now though. If that private torture squad doesn't get her, my guess is the Russians will find a way to take her out. And I don't mean for dinner and a movie..
      So I dunno .. this past episode seemed a bit disjointed to me. The pacing just seemed weird. Just, what, 6 hours or so left? Hopefully the pace will start to pick up very soon-like.

      I enjoyed the show last night, but as with you, felt that the storyline is "riding off in all directions" a bit. My S.O.D. (suspension of disbelief) abilities are being put to ever higher levels of testing. But, I've come this far, and it's still interesting, in a bizarre sort of way, so I'll stick around for the last hours.
      President Taylor, though...wow. What once was a towering figure of integrity has crumbled into a quivering tower of Jello. Are there only 2 people left with any integrity; Ethan, and Jack? We'll find out pretty soon, I suppose.
      Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

      Yep, and it looks like Ethan has left the building too. Not much moral conscious-type guys left.
      Forgot to mention too that I thought Logan was outstanding again. I really did enjoy those scenes with him. Especially that last one with Ethan. Halfway thought that Ethan would have another heart attack.
      Maybe it's just me -- but I wonder if the Prez and Ethan ever had something going on? I know they're probably old, trusted friends and such. I just kinda figured it was more somehow.
      I did kinda chuckle when Jack bought all those phones and said, "I won't need the chargers." Heh.
      Dalia better hurry and sign that agreement. 5 minutes later President Taylor might change her mind again ..

      I'll preface this by saying I've always obediently watched 24 and never really bagged on the show, save for season 4.
      Granted I started watching @ 11:25pm but I dozed in and out of sleep all through the episode and I when I woke up at the end I felt that I hadn't missed anything. Last week was good, this week, meh. I hope the writers can finish strong so we don't have this jaded, sour taste of 24 and what it once was but now become when it is all said and done.

      I was wondering how Chloe called Jack back. He called her from that prepaid phone and threw it away. It's not like he gave her the numbers to all his other phones.

      I liked when Chloe gave the pep talk at CTU. "Listen up everyone, we're doing a sting operation. Let's go to work!"
      Everyone just knows what they should be doing for the sting? Had me laughing.
      I was waiting to see Ethan with wings and a halo and Charles with horns and a tail. It was like a sitcom or a movie with the Prez having an angel on one shoulder and the devil on another. Angel tells her to do right. She does. Devil tells her to do bad, she does. I thought it was really bad how easily the Prez' mind could be changed and especially by Logan - why would she listen to him?
      Liked Ethan and his speech about why the peace treaty is so important to her. Like his moral stand. Hope we don't see the last of him.

      Dana was kinda hot, running around barefoot with a silencer.

      So many awesome 24 scenes in this episode:
      - "you can't take the shot, it's too dangerous!"... bam!
      - Chloe's angry face, always awesome.
      - Jack killing Dana. She deserved it.

      Man I thought FOX would sugar coat that scene and have Jack let her go but he straight up executed that bitch. I cheered.
