The Following Takes Place Between 2:00 A.M and 3:00 A.M.
My week has been pretty busy so you’re getting a quick recap instead of the full thing. This week was mostly setting up the last few episodes anyway. As an additional programming note, I’m going to be out of town in Europe for the next 2 weeks but I’ll be back just in time for the finale night. I know you’re going to be sad but them’s the breaks. Join me after the jump for a quickie.
Tony kills Galvez and meets up with the hot fake lawyer chick in a seedy motel room. They bang and then she sets up a meeting with the members of their terrorist ring via anonymized web conference. To Tony’s delight she convinces them to rush their plans and continue attacking today while the FBI is weakened. They kidnap some Muslim terrorist sleeper cell guy to have him activated and carry out their plan.
Jon Voight is taken to a holding medical cell at the FBI and the President approves putting him in witness protection (as dead) if he provides credible information about the next plot and who he was dealing with. Olivia isn’t too happy about this and seemingly asks Aaron and some other guy to kill Jon Voight. Jack interrogates Voight and provides him with the deal which he quickly accepts. Voight tells them about the anonymous group and their plan to create a series of attacks in order to create public distrust in the government, thereby allowing them to privatize the government. (I cynically wonder how different this would actually be and how much it already is privatized) He also tells Jack that the only direct contact he has is with Tony’s f-buddy who heads up the group. The President is content with the intel and has CTU’s decommissioned servers activated. Jack brings Chloe in to deal with the technology, Janeane Garofolo gets pissy (about Chloe being there and the reactivation of “Big Brother”), and Jack goes crazy at her and accidentally calls President Taylor, “President Palmer.”
Thoughts: Is CTU back or is this a temporary minor thing? What exactly are Tony, the hot fake lawyer, and the Muslim guy going to do? Who else is in the secret group and why? Who was the seemingly very important guy? How is Olivia going to snap? Who was that guy she called? I recognize him from somewhere. How does Jack’s health keep going in waves of being fine and then cracked out? This is getting kind of annoying. We know he’s supposed to be back next season so why not just fix him and get it over with?
