On any other show, every major plot point so far would be a jump the shark moment. For some reason, on this show, they're all genius. Mastermind behind last season is actually Jack's brother? That's ridiculous on a soap opera, yet somehow, they make it plausible, and even believable.
Hell, if they told us the reason Jack never ate or used the bathroom was because he was a cyborg, I'm sure it would go over just fine.
When he calls in to CTU for pick-up, he tells them the street intersection he's at, and that he's back on duty. Not even a single mention of the flaming pile of helicopter behind him. Cause that's just completely normal in his mind, not even worth an afterthought.
She won't be a plant, she'll be the only one who knows how to arm the nukes, and so the terrorists will kidnap someone in her family to force her to help them, and she'll be torn by the irony of having to become exactly who her clearance was restricted for in the first place, but since she's using Milo's authorization, he'll get in trouble for it.
No, last time we saw her was at the end of Season 4 and she got a presidential pardon. So shes basically still out there doing whatever she wants. I think we'll see her at least once more before the series ends.
So Graem, the mastermind behind last season, was in reality working for Jack's his dad, which means Daddy Bauer is an even bigger bad guy, two steps above the last President... so who does he work for? When do we finally get to meet the most all-powerful evil corporate bad guy in the universe, who controls like every nation and government?
Betcha Karen Hayes buys it on her flight back to LA.
