Thoughts on “24”

SPOILERS!
Another great episode. Jack wailing away on the Joe Scarborough-like presidential aide was a highlight, for sure. But a couple of holes: First of all, wasn’t the whole reason Jack faked his own death because the Chinese government was after him? Shouldn’t that come up again at some point, since the Chinese presumably still want him?
And secondly, we knew Logan was a wuss, but when he went along with Walt’s plot (if even for only a few minutes), didn’t that constitute treason, or at the very least an impeachable offense? I mean, the White House chief of staff knowingly aided a terrorist plot- and the biggest real-life political scandal in recent years was the Valerie Plame leak?

    “First of all, wasn’t the whole reason Jack faked his own death because the Chinese government was after him? Shouldn’t that come up again at some point, since the Chinese presumably still want him?”
    That’s why Logan said Jack’s reappearance would present a problem for both of them, and Jack promised to disappear as soon as the nerve gas is recovered.

    No way, dude, they’re Republicans! Signed, the writing staff of “24”

    Damn, he does look like Joe Scarborough. John Allen Nelson deserves to have his eye cut out for starring in stuff like “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” and “Hunk”.
