In Season Five, I covered a few double hour episodes, but the one that sticks in my head the most was the one where poor Edgar Stiles was killed off by the Sentox nerve gas during hours 11 and 12. That shook me and the rest of the 24 viewing world. With Morris being kidnapped and a future of coercement, I have to be worried about him. I like this guy. I think he’s a good addition to CTU, he speaks his mind, but isn’t overly cruel. If he turns out being a mole, I’ll be a sad gurl. If he dies, I’ll be a sad gurl. I’d cross my fingers, but that doesn’t make for super typing.
At CTU, Chloe is working slowly, she’s freaking out about Morris. When Milo told Bill that she was not up to par, he was naturally concerned and stopped by to check on her and her progress. Chloe was naturally half-crazed and bitched out Bill.
“I’m fine, I’d be better if you just stopped bothering me”
So, he had Milo take over. Meanwhile, the kidnapped Morris is trying to act a bit tough while in backseat of the fleeing car. When Milo found McCarthy’s pretty Maserati on satellite, CTU dispatched a team in a chopper. McCarthy makes Blondie drive all crazy like to lose the bird overhead. Soon as they can, they stop and steal a pickup truck to confuse everyone.
Morris tries to talk to Blondie while McCarthy is breaking into the truck; he sees that he might be getting through to her, especially when she starts haranguing McCarthy as they drive off in the truck. “You didn’t tell me this was going to involve more nukes” He reminds her of the cool seven million dollars that is waiting for them at Fayed’s place.
When Jack finds out that McCarthy et al have switched rides, he utters his first “Damnit” of the hour (Drink Up).
WOW. Blondie shoots McCarthy! She decides though, that she still wants the 7 mil, so she’s going to keep on with the kidnapping and delivery of Morris to Abu Fayed.
At the White House (Bunker), Tom is feeling just as ballistic as Jack. Tom wants to resign. Reed calls a mysterious dude named Carter. There was a plan evidently, a shadowy plan that’ll get f&#ked if Tom and Reed leave the White House. Hmm. Just what we need… more shadow groups.
