CHLOE SLAUGHTERS GARAFALO IN GEEK SHOWDOWN
CATEGORY: "24"

Apologies to all for the lateness of these summaries the last two days. I have been having some computer problems as well as finding it difficult to find the time to write as my day job at American Thinker must take priority. Hopefully, with only a single hour to cover next week, I can have the summary up in the morning.

When I wrote yesterday that Chloe would have Janis’s “guts for garters” in any geek throwdown, little did I know how quickly my prediction would come true.

After discovering that Chloe’s magical geek skills had allowed her to tap into the FBI surveillance cameras, Janis tried the old “Ping the server and reset” trick which did indeed, temporarily block our supergeek Chloe from helping Jack and Tony escape from FBI headquarters.

But as terrorists, criminals, and all who have crossed her in past years by trying to outgeek our beloved have come to find out the hard way, you don’t mess with Chloe when it comes to high tech techy stuff. In a couple of minutes, she had so confused inferior geek Janis with her wizardry that she not only got back access to the surveillance cameras in the building, she also shut down every traffic camera along the escape route.

She left Garafalo breathless and not a little awed by her supergeek performance. The look of fear was in the FBI geek wannabe’s eyes as Chloe made it clear that no one - and certainly not some FBI geek flunky - could ever defeat her in battle.

Chloe is back and she’s taking names and kicking butt. And judging by the look on Jack’s face when she said “hello,” she is just as much of a bitch as we all remember her so lovingly to be. That phonecon with Jack was classic Chloe:

CHLOE: Hi jack its good to hear your voice.

JACK: Yeah. Good to hear yours too.

CHLOE: I saw the hearings on C-span. I can’t believe what that senator said to you. You looked good though.

A couple of additional thoughts about hours 3 and 4.

You didn’t really think Tony was a bad guy, did you? I’ve got news for you, he can still flip back to being Emerson’s boy at any time. Jack certainly doesn’t trust him completely.

Nor does he trust Bill and Chloe. Do you really think they are running this op all by themselves with no help? I knew you were smarter than that. The question is, who is behind this “Operation White Knight?” Let’s look at some possibilities in descending order of probability.

3. Prime Minister Motobo. Why not? If Juma is running Emerson’s crew and owns some higher ups in government, why wouldn’t Motobo counter with his own operation?

2. Martha Logan. She knows where some of the bodies are buried. Plus, she has the connections.

1. I think it’s Bill’s wife Karen who is also the ex-National Security Advisor.

Let loose with your speculation in the comments.

The way the writers handled the revelation that Tony was actually a (sort of) good guy was great but I would have liked to have them build a little more suspense into it - maybe string it out over a couple of more hours. But when he whispered the code to Jack, that was a nice little shocker. Tony, if you’ve watched the show over the years, has indeed been through a lot. It would have been accceptable but sad if he really was a bad guy. Besides, as I mentioned, he may yet turn to the dark side.

As far as the ultimate goal of taking out corrupt government officials, if that’s the best they can do it is going to be a long season. High officials being bribed to oppose a military action? Not very plausible and pretty boring actually. Expect some other kind of conspiracy that threatens innocent lives.

Who is running all the FBI moles? There has to be more than one. Obvious choices (for this show) are always the least likely; Larry Moss and maybe Hillinger. Outside chance that Garafalo is the mole and her mild mannered geek personae is just an act but I’m doubting it.

Bill or Chloe are toast - slated to die. Tony, if he switches back, will almost certainly get it but I’m thinking Bill will sacrifice his life in some heroic way. People would stop watching the show if they killed off Chloe.

Romantic interest between Jack and SM Walker? She sure looked like she enjoyed torturing Tanner, didn’t she? Horrified but more at how much she liked it perhaps than how evil it was to do. My guess is that there will be an attraction but no kissy-kissy.

CTU East looks better equipped than the damn FBI office. Maybe it’s supposed to.

The First Son’s murder will never be revealed and his fiancee Sam will meet a horrible end. That’s because the First Gent’s Secret Service Agent is bent and was placed there just for that purpose - to keep the murder quiet. They’ll trump up some sex thing for the First Gent and he will be forced to keep the murder under wraps.

In summary, the second night was better than the first but still moved awfully slowly in spots. We need some kind of attack on Americans to get the juices flowing. Right now, I don’t really care that much if they uncover some greedy government servants. I want life or death, edge of your seat, ticking time bomb scenario where it is impossible for Jack to save the day - but he ends up doing it anyway.

Now that’s what I’m talking about, yes?

    SM Walker? She can pinch my airway tube any day. Yes, I’m talkin’ exoerotic asphyxiation.

    I think you’re right about Chloe and Bill - not only the additional layer of conspiracy on their side, but which of them will bite it. Wholesale revolt, riots in the streets, plummeting ratings if The Magical Geek Chick goes.

    Tony was injected with a ‘hyperthermic’ compound? What kind of gobbledygook is that? Chloe, a supergeek? Agreed. Bill might ultimately get killed off if James Morrison has a more lucrative gig elsewhere. Otherwise I don’t agree on that one. Further, the ratings would plummet if Chloe gets killed. BTW, with Mary Lynn’s pregnancy, will be interesting to watch future camera work.

    Bill’s wife sounds like a obvious choice to head up this secret operation but what about Jack’s dad. I can’t remember him being killed in the last season. Killing Chloe will almost certainly kill me from watching. I love her character and quirkiness. Plus Jack will turn over all of earth to extract revenge.
    I was cheering the moment I saw her.

    Chloe is wearing a wedding ring. What role will Morris play?

    Secret Source of CTU Support - Noah Daniels. He has the connection, he probably has the moxie, and he might want to expose the corruption in the government to build his own legacy. Far fetched, but not as far fetched as Logan or Motobu.

    The mole won’t be garafalo…she isn’t a good actress and one of the rules is that the super spy/murder needs to be an experience, capable actor to handle the moment of truth plausibly. She wouldn’t be able to pull it off. When you see a veteran character actor introduced into the FBI in a higher-level capacity, you’ll have your mole.

    > Tony was injected with a ‘hyperthermic’ compound?

    HYPOthermic. They lowered his body temperature (mainly his brain) until they could get him to place where they could do whatever surgery was needed. It’s becoming standard practice on heart attack patients in New York city. (but I don’t know about the injection part - that might be 24-tech-babble)

    The problem I have with this season is the premise of the President’s dilemma. Is it not a “no brainer”?

    The NSA guy (or whoever he is) said it would take about 6 days to create a new firewall and eliminate the threat against the US. SIX DAYS! So, just pull back the troops, buy yourself sometime, fix the firewall, then kill all the bad guys.

    Okay, so in the six days it takes to fix the firewall more “innocents” will be killed in some foreign country. That sucks, but you are the President of the US after all…

    The sense of urgency feels somewhat (okay a lot) contrived.

    I think the ultimate sponsor of operation “White Knight” is POTUS herself. The writers will want to ultimately portray her as a heroine.

    I stand corrected on the compound–hypothermic it is. My advanced years are beginning to take the toll on my hearing, which is vitally important for musicians in general and jazz musicians in particular. Thanks Arthur for the heads up. Even with the advantage of watching over and over on ‘Fancast’–which already has the four episodes available to view free of charge (God bless Fancast & their sponsors), I still hear ‘hyper’. Looks like I’d better C# or I’ll Bb, pun intended.

    who is behind this “Operation White Knight?”

    Probably the “George Soros” look-a-like.

    The MaryHunter Said:
    2:51 pm 

    mpro:
    POTUS as mastermind of “White Knight” seems intriguing but far-fetched. We’ve already had one extremely sneaky president, another (even for good not ill) would be contrived. (heh, contrived) If it comes from the White House, there will have to be plausible deniability. Could be Chief of Staff (?) Kanin, who is so set up to seem like a bad guy that he’s GOT to be a good guy in the end.

    Juan:
    Good catch re Chloe’s ring. I hope we see Morris again — one of the best written and most tragic characters from last season.

    Jack B is a fictional character. That means he is a fantasy. Don’t we have something better to do than read King Arthur stories and wish Camelot will return?

    Come on Conservatives. We cannot move forward if we live inside our own heads.

    The “hypothermic” scenario is real, as someone previously commented. It slows down metabolism and oxygen use by the brain–otherwise you’ve got about six minutes before you devolve into a large vegetable–or worse. It’s usually done with cooling blakets or ice, though, and I don’t know of any injectable compound that has the same effect.( I’m an R.N.) I am rooting for Janine Garofolo to be the “mole.” Not because I think it’s plausible, but for the selfish desire to see her tortured, mercilessly and repeatedly. (Couldn’t we just lock her in a room with Sarah Palin and a deer rifle for a few moments?)
    Don’t worry, Yoda. I have my fantasies AND I move forward!

  13. 13
    jazplyr Said:

    Hey Yoda, don’t worry. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, no pun intended here. “24″ like any work of fiction is a device for escapism. It has attracted a huge and diverse viewer base which includes the left-wing crowd. The lefties wasted no time getting their collective thong in a wad over real or imagined torture scenes that haven’t even materialized yet. It’s amazing, all this angst over a work of fiction. Speaking for myself, with the exception of the NFL and “24″, I don’t waste my time staring at the tube. I’m grateful for the once per week R & R plus this forum to speculate with kindred spirits in the effort to outguess the script writers. We promise to avoid coercing you to watch or comment.

    [...] But Right Wing Nuthouse is pretty reasonable and quite the opposite of a nuthouse. Plus Rick Moran’s running commentary on this season of “24″ is spot-on. One of the things that makes America the greatest country in the history of the world is that liberals and conservatives alike can join hands and agree that Chloe is awesome. [...]

    Escapism. Yeah, I think we conservatives will be seeking it out more and more over this new error…er…era. By far my favorite character over the run of this show has been Chloe. Somewhat obsessed as my fellow 24-ers would agree. My favorite moment will always be when Chloe picked up the M16 and while in perfect Marine Rifleman form, proceeded to put multiple and deadly accurate rounds into some deserving scumbags. Priceless. I jumped higher out of my seat than I did when Doug Flutie completed the Hail Mary pass in the 85 Fiesta Bowl. I also can’t stand Janeane Garofalo’s character and think she can’t act, although, it’s hardly an objective opinion since I utterly detest her and that surely affects my opinion of her acting. I also think that we are in for a fairly tempered season. I thought I had read somewhere that Joel Surnow was either loosening the reins of control or backing off completely. Certainly, this new error of ‘change’ seems to have influenced these first 4 hours. While I understand why the show is trying to explain the ‘why’ behind Jack’s motives for torturing, I think most Americans don’t need an explanation. The resulting absence of any mass casualties is explanation enough.
