Fox News did a poll, a few weeks ago, about whether 24 could survive if Jack were killed off. I think last night’s episode definitively answers that question in the negative.
There was very little Jack — until the end– and so Dawn had very little interest — until the end.
My favorite part was when Jack goes “how could I be so stupid?!” because I too was thinking the very same thing and was on the verge of losing some respect for our intrepid hero — but his own self-awareness saves his place in my pantheon of great TV action heroes.
Looks like cougar girl is back next week. I’ll be sure to have my antacids on hand.
