Random Thoughts

Random thoughts watching this episode: Anne can't handle all this politics so she wants to split up with the President. Who cares? She's a pain in the butt, anyway.

Chase is in trouble after getting caught. He almost blows Jack's cover in Mexico. After he sees Jack (supposedly) in cahoots with the Salazars he (Chase) he acts like an immature idiot again. The kid has heart and guts, but no class.

Apparently (I missed the first two years) Claudia and Jack and had a thing for each other and that's rekindled and, apparently, she is going to help Jack who is another big-time predicament. I think Vanessa Ferlito is hot ever since I first saw her on CSI: New York.

This is my ninth episode of seeing this television program and, sad to say, I like Joaquim de Almedia best. No, I am not one of these people who roots for the villain but I think he's the most realistic character in this show.

Two characters are quickly introduced, at least to me: "Nina" and "Allan." From what I can surmise, Nina was a past villain on this show and Allan was some sort of big-shot who helped David Palmer get elected President. Now, Allan wants his brother Wayne to be fired and Nina is a second buyer for the virus.

Man, whoever writes this material sure has an imagination. Shocking developments seem to be routine on this program. But, as Ramon says to Jack at the end: "You got more lives than a cat." Amen to that!
