24: Day 4, 4-5 a..m.
Is it just me or does everyone seen a bit too non-chalant about the fact that there is a nuclear missile heading toward an American city and that it could hit in an hour or two?!? I'm just saying that there doesn't seem to be the level of panic and intensity that I'd hoped for. Not that I want everyone running around like a chicken with their head cut off, but I'd like to see a little more intensity out of those striving to find out where the missile is and how to stop it. (At this point, the only way Jack hasn't saved the world is ripping open his shirt, having a big S on his chest and flying up to stop the missile. And you never know what might happen next week....)

The only thing Jack can't save is his relationship with Audrey. Or maybe he can. At this point who knows because Audrey changes moods and her mind more often than most of us change pants. In this day, she's gone from loving Jack, being grateful he saved her, wanting to leave her ex-husband, horrified at what Jack has done, wanting to get back with her husband, being pissed that Jack killed her husband and now she's maybe, just maybe considering at least sitting down and talking with Jack about their relationship. And to hear that Jack really does have some very good reasons for everything he's done today.

And Tony agrees with that. So much that he uses the "Gee, Jack did what was right and it got him screwed" to help Michelle realize he'd done the same thing for her last year. And so they can get back together and have a poignoint moment before Tony heads off to be captured by season one and two's Mandi (really the only major recurring villian we have left since Nina is dead). Of course, I still have to wonder how either of these two relationships will hold up. I mean, we're looking at potential death for everyone invovled and that can bring out the "well, we're gonna die anyway so we've got nothing to lose" reactions and confessions of love.

And, of course, part of me is wanting to yell at the screen--less smooching, more saving the world! Of course, this is CTU and we've got Jack on our side. So, we know the world is pretty safe really.

Speaking of CTU, does anyone else think they need to hire Marwan as some type of security or disaster preparedness consultant? I say this because Marwan seems to have every base covered when it comes to escaping. Somehow, he's seen far enough ahead in this plans to have guys outside of the warehouse he was captured in last week with rocket launchers, ready to free him. For a moment or two, I felt sure that Marwan had been matryred for the cause, but yet he was still able to escape, yet again. (And man, how much does that CTU security perimeter stink?)

Meanwhile, in Washington, it's good to know that when the world is threatened and the U.S. is in a category one crisis that some politicians will says, "Yes, that is important, but how can it help my own self-interest?" I really wanted to see Palmer put a verbal beat-down on the Speaker of the House, cuase we all know how Palmer can get when he's justifiably upset (just ask Mike Novak). I am intrigued that they manipulated the Speaker of the House into making some critical mistake, but we're not quite sure what yet. And was it just me or did anyone else want to see Palmer give President PrissyPants a verbal lashing as well in the meeting with the assembled leaders of Congress? (And speaking of, last night's 24 fantasy world moment was how they were able to assemble all those people together in 10 minutes in D.C. traffic)

Finally, Heller returns to the scene. He interrogates his son and finds out his son has been used by Marwan to determine Heller's location. And that his son was duped by a couple. The thing is, son was in bed with the guy while the gal made some calls from his cell phone. The look on Heller's face as he found this little nuggett of information out was priceless. But Heller's long absence during the crisis and his timing in returning here seem suspect. Is he in on it somehow? I know the real world explanation is that William Davane was off filming a pilot for a show next fall, but surely they could work that long departure into something here on 24 for this year.

Two hours left and there's a whole lot of plot threads still dangling. How will 24 deal with all of them? I guess we'll find out next Monday night when it all comes to a conclusion.

Speaking of dangling plot threads, the entire Chinese are pissed that we attacked their consolate is not addressed in any manner this week.
