24: Jack and Aaron FTW

This week’s episode of 24 was fantastic.  OK, so every episode is fantastic, but after weeks and weeks of good guys dying left and right, it’s nice to have a week where the good guys in their various subplots all not only live, but win.

Did you notice how when Wayne snuck up on Aaron he had an M16 or some such beast, but then after the commercial break Aaron had the M16 and Wayne just had a pistol?  I’d love to know what it was that Aaron said to Wayne in order to get the big gun.  Aaron is a man of so few words, and he’s so tough, I’m sure whatever it was, it would have been hilarious to witness.

And this has got to be one of the greatest Jack Bauer lines of all time:

Quoting Jack Bauer:

He’s using you.  He wanted you to get inside my head, and it worked.  And now I’m... upset.  You have three seconds to tell me where the target is or I will kill you.

Yep, CTU kicked some serious butt this week.  I did not notice the weapons switch, though I thought it was weird that Wayne had the m16 in the first place.  Where did he get it?  His car rolled, he got out and ran down the tunnel, empty-handed.  Then the next scene that shows him, he’s armed with the gun.  Did I miss something?

I thought Chloe had another great line this episode.  Right before Jack and Curtis approached the gas center in the chopper, Jack was talking to Chloe about thermal imaging of the site.  She says something like "There are 2 guards.  I gave the pilot an approach vector that will keep you out of the guards’ line of sight".  Gotta love approach vectors. What a cool geek she is!

Yeah, that was a great episode!!! It was pretty cool how Jack just flipped that table and pinned Audrey against the wall by her neck (not that that’s a good thing, just pretty cool). I might die before monday! :)

P.S. Can’t wait for you guys to move! 1 hour away is definitely better than 5.

What a show!  Was anyone else shocked to hear Jack freakin Bauer admit to Buchanan that he was scared, like 5 minutes into the episode last night?  I think I even heard a slight squeal in his voice while he was saying it.  I knew right then that something BIG was coming.

I know.  He must have just been trying to make Bill Buchanan feel better, since Bill is obviously not as tough as Jack, and since Jack obviously has never actually experienced fear.

Definitely good times.  I’ll have to wait until I rewatch the season on DVD, but as of right now this might be my favorite season.  Were it not for the death of Tony, it would be perfect thus far.
