Anyways, Gradenko and Fayid launch one of the drones before CTU can get to them. The VP says that if it goes off, the US will nuke the country where the terrorists came from. Somehow I doubt it was Sweden.
Jack returns to CTU and is told to go to medical because he has messed up ribs and could have internal bleeding. He sees Marilyn and she tries to kiss him (her husband has been dead for less than 12 hours, that is my kinda girl), Jack mentions Audrey, and then learns that she died in China. Turns out she went to rescue Jack and was killed.
Jack wants the file on Audrey’s death from Chloe. He is pissed that Bill did not mention it to him. Needless to say, Jack might cry, or kill 49 people, I would bet on the option 2.
Morris is tracking the drone when it disappears, turns out that the sneaky Russians have a mole in CTU, and can see exactly what satellites Morris is going to use, and just avoid them. CTU figures out that it is coming from Nadia’s workstation. Milo does not want Mike Doyle (that is Ricky’s name on the show) to investigate her because she’s Muslim, blah blah blah.
Mike uses the Jack method when dealing with women, start choking them, but Nadia does not start talking immediately, so maybe she is not the mole. I bet it is Milo. Wasn’t he a crackhead on Six Feet Under? You can never trust a crackhead.
Morris figures out that the signal is being sent 3 blocks from CTU and Jack and Mike lead a team there. Jack kills 2 and wounds one, then pilots the drone to safety, but the landing is subpar, and the core starts to leak.
The VP decides that is just as good as a nuclear strike on our country, and says to get ready to launch a nuke within the hour. Karen and Tom are against the idea, and the new plan may be to wake up Palmer (even though it could kill him) to get him to stop the madness.
Maybe my early assessment of Mike was wrong, maybe he is not as cool as I thought. It is like they wanted to make him badass like Jack, but forgot to give him any good qualities. Yeah, I’d watch a season of that guy being a dick to people. Wait, that would just be like my life, except without torture and killing people. Or being a badass, just being a dick at work.
I guessed 2 last week, and I was right. I say next week Jack takes down 4. Three of them being direct kills, the last one being the guy from this episode that Jack wounded.
On a sidenote, did it seem like they said the drone could reach it’s target in like 4 minutes, and then it took like 25? Or did they say they could have F16s intercept in 4 minutes? It just seemed to take along time for the drone to get to San Fran. Or maybe I was hoping they would fail and we would lose the Bay Area. Is there a CTU in SF? I guess there was one in Denver. Wouldn’t this be a SFCTU problem anyways? I think LACTU should have been like “this is out of our hands now, everyone can go home.” Sorry that was a long sidenote.
Sidenote 2: I think Jack will die at the end of this season. Or has that been confirmed and I am just too stupid to know it?
Also, I swear this is the end, that picture is of Ricky when he was on Scrubs. Although, it would be great if it was Mike Doyle undercover or something. I will check with DenverCTU for his file.
