Well, now we know for sure: Larry's really dead, glassy eyes, blood-smeared mouth and all. In order to set up his cover story for Larry's murder - and presumably continue working his evil plan from the inside - Tony pulls the old shooting-himself-and-waiting-for-help move. Cliched, but effective.
Agents quickly arrive on the scene, and Renee is the first person called with the news of Larry's death. Rendered speechless for a moment, she's obviously crushed, but manages not to totally fall apart - because, as one of the on-scene guys reminds her, "You're the ranking agent in charge now." And just like that, Renee pulls it together and prepares to lead a team of agents in pursuit of the remaining bioweapon canister - and, perhaps more importantly, Larry's killer.
At this point, Jack decides he's had enough of sitting on the sidelines waiting to die, and he hops into Renee's chopper just before takeoff. Of course she argues that he's too sick to be in the field, but as Kim told her moments earlier, there's no changing Jack's mind once it's made up. Or, as Jack himself puts it, "You wanna keep arguing about this and waste more time?"
You can never be 100-percent sure of anything with 24, but when Tony tells his Starkwood buddy Galvez (Gabriel Casseus) to get as many FBI agents as possible inside of a building and blow them up - well, it doesn't exactly seem like he's secretly one of the good guys, does it?
In other Starkwood business, a new element is introduced at the top of the hour when a lawyer called in by Hodges is assaulted at her home and replaced by a young, blonde look-alike. Her disguise (and some kind of finger-print-fooling technology) is good enough to get Lawyer Barbie to Hodges' White House holding cell. And she has a very unpleasant message to deliver: Starkwood's employers (whoever they are) have decided that Hodges suffered a "psychotic break" and can no longer be trusted to protect their interests. So, in exchange for not harming Hodges' family, they're offering him a suicide solution. He reluctantly accepts the little red pill (anyone else think of The Matrix as soon as they saw it?).
While being transported from the White House by a couple of soldiers, Hodges takes his medicine and immediately goes into convulsions. Though, judging by the previews for next week, they don't appear to be fatal. (Maybe he should have taken the blue pill?)
