24 – 4am til 5am open thread

Posted by: ST on March 22, 2010 at 8:13 pm

I’m off to watch my guilty pleasure show Dancing With The Stars :D . Still catching up on the 24 shows I’ve yet to see. Hope to be caught up by the end of the week.

Later, gators.

    I’d like to think the annoying Dana Walsh extortion story just ended, but somehow I doubt it…

  2. Sal says:

    I seriously thought that they were going to off Chloe…

  3. Ah Ha, Dana has been a mole all along. I knew it. It didn’t make any sense that someone with her background could somehow, with a fake identity, get a job at an agency like CTU. Now all that remains is to find who pulled the strings to get her in that position.

    People have been complaining about the Dana/Jenny story, but I’ve enjoyed it, partly because I was expecting it to turn out this way. I love it when I’m right.

    I just find it amazing how CTU keeps ending up with moles. This agency should have been closed down years ago.. LOL

  5. Kate says:

    LOL….right, just how do you get a car close enough with that kind of bomb on board? The place is a sieve~ I think the writers better address that fact to keep the story a bit more believable.

    BTW….when do you think they will smell a dead body festering in the walls?

  6. CTU’s had how many moles now? Someone’s majorly dropped the ball on the screening process!

    …so, like, who is gonna get whacked next week? :-?

    Dancing is great fun and I used to be a pretty good ball room dancer…

    1) Season 1 – Jamie and, shockingly, Nina
    2) Season 2, fake HVAC guys plant a bomb in CTU LA
    3) No infiltration. The moles were actually Gael, Tony and Jack as part of their harebrained scheme to get the drug lords.
    4) Season 4 – Mary Anne Taylor
    5) Season 5 – Lynn McGill loses his ID in a mugging and allows the bad guys to infiltrate and attack CTU.
    6) Season 6 – Bad guys enter CTU through the sewer system; kill Milo who’s protecting Nadi
    7) Season 7 – Sean and his dead ex-girlfriend.

    Yes you would think that a top secret organization would be better protected and have more effective screening.

  10. The dead body of Prady won’t start smelling for a day or two, and we are already more than halfway through the “day”. I would say the plan is for Dana to do what she has to do and then get away before its discovered.

    It’s easy to get moles inside agencies when you have higher ups (like maybe the President’s Chief-Of-Staff-or maybe somebody else) pulling the strings to get it done.

    24 wouldn’t be the same without the obligatory mole, if not in CTU, then somewhere. It’s tradition.

    I’m still waiting for the “24” episode where Jack actually gets some sleep…
    “The following takes place between 2am and 3am…”
    [Entire hour is scene of Jack snoring in bed]


  12. LOL – me, too, Sefton! And when he finally goes to the bathroom! The guy simply isn’t human …

  13. Soccerdad-

    You left out two of the greatest moles of all time.

    Season Five-President Charles Logan

    Season Seven-Tony Almeida

    I also seem to remember from Season Six some woman who was involved with Vice-President Daniels, though I don’t know if she could legitimately be classified as a mole.

  14. soccer dad says:

    Sister Toldjah,

    You know how when an episode fades out for a commercial you see 3:11:27 and after the commercial it reads 3:14:49 – during those 2 1/2 minutes is when everyone goes to the bathroom. They wouldn’t show that, of course.


    I meant within agencies, where someone would have to pass a background check. As President, Logan didn’t need a background check. He just needed the votes. (Actually he needed those votes as VP, as he took over when his predecessor was incapacitated.)

    Daniels’ assistant wasn’t a mole, she was just bad; though, I suppose, that Chad Lowe character (who held Peter MacNichol hostage) might qualify too.
