I'm starting to wonder if should start my Monday night '24' viewings at 9:30pm instead of 9:00pm because tonight's episode was a snoozefest until the halfway point. There was a serious lack of movement during the first half hour and I was getting terribly bored. The Jack/Marcos standoff remained at an impasse as Marcos tried to get The World's Most Ineffective Suicide Bomb re-wired. Dana and Cole returned to CTU and got a slap on the wrist and handwave by Hastings, which was WAY too mild considering they suspiciously ditched their posts during a national security crisis, but whatever. I was willing to let it go if it meant the last of the Dana's Dark Past storyline, but noooooo. We'll get to that in a second, because I'd prefer to pretend it never happened. Hassan's daughter and Tarin recovered from their romp between the sheets long enough to reveal that they're trying to get asylum from the State Department. At two in the morning. I guess the Chief of Staff was able to get a DOJ lawyer to CTU a couple hours earlier, so at least the writers are being consistent in their ridiculousness. Tensions continue between Mr. and Mrs. Hassan. Aaaandâ¦ I don't know what's happening with Madame President, because she and Renee were woefully lacking from this episode.
