[Spoilers be here]

Wow, that was quite an explosive fourth hour, wasn’t it? Oh and I wasn’t sad to see Kumar Kal Penn go because he was lame. He needs to make another White Castle movie or something and leave the dramatic acting to those who can do it well.

Did I call the demise of Curtis or what? Damn, I’m good. And unlike Kevin, I never cared much for him. Quite frankly, I felt his character was one-dimensional. He showed more emotion in the twenty seconds before Jack shot him, in the neck no less, than I’ve seen in all the seasons he’s been in, so his death didn’t move me.

Watching Jack fall to pieces afterwards, however, did. That is some of the finest dramatic acting I have ever seen. Way to go, Kiefer! You really felt for Jack and could see what an emotional toll the things he’s experienced over the years has taken on him. I look forward to them exploring this more in upcoming episodes.

The thing I don’t like about this season (so far) is that there are just too many characters I don’t like, and not in the “love to hate them” way either: Milo Pressman, Nadia Yassir, Sanda Palmer, and Thomas Lennox just to name a few. They all suck! They make President Logan look good and I couldn’t stand him. I want to see more of Jack in the field and less of these half-wits. And Morris as Chloe’s ex-husband. Seriously? While I actually like him, he just doesn’t fit the profile of the type of man Chloe would date, let alone marry. I still can’t wrap my head around that.

I’d also like to know who the hell I saw Jack being intimate with in a recent preview. It went too fast for me to tell, but she had dark hair. Hopefully not Nadia. I would barf. Maybe Audrey dyed her hair a darker shade. Or maybe it was Chloe. Wouldn’t that be a riot?! Jack and Chloe, the ultimate anti-terrorist couple. Hey, it could happen. I was right about Curtis, in case you’ve already forgotten.

But alas, we have to wait one whole week for another beautiful episode. I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself in the meantime.

    And I get the feeling I’ll be right about Tom Lennox. Mark it here and now.

    I agree that was some of the best dramatic work from Kiefer yet. We both felt for him.

    The first four hours of this season have been so intense! I have been a little wigged out, since I live in L.A., but luckily am able to calm down and separate TV from reality!
