    Loving the season so far, but I must be the only one here who thinks Astin is working for the now deposed ex-Mr. President, who I think will re-take the White House before the season's over.

    Oh, and I think our current Mole (Chloe's boy toy) knew all along who he was working for, he just lied. That, or he, too, is working for the now-deposed ex. Mr. President, and will help him reclaim the White House before the season's over :)

    The now-deposed ex-Mr. President is Palmer. Or do you mean Keeler who was removed from office due to injury?

    sorry, yeah, by deposed, I mean Keeler has been out of it (literally) but will quickly get support and have enough votes of confidence to remove current dude. Thanks indy! :)

    We don't know how incapacitated by the plane crash he is, though. It may be a moo point. Like a cow's opinion.

    Walt was wearing gloves when he chloroformed the First Lady and removed the paper from her bra. I am surprised, though, that no one smelled the chloroformed rag in his pocket after the attack, or noticed the smell in the room.

    Maybe they just didn't realize the smell coming from Walt was chloroform. :)

    Great episode! When are they going to secure that back server room, and make CTU employees check their cellphones/pda's at the door? That has been the cause of most of the problems over all of the past seasons. At least they caught the guy early!
    Did we ever find out how/why the gas was encased in concrete under a hanger?
    Also in the first episode did they say the presidential retreat was in Death Valley (might have just imagined that), if so the first lady isn't going to get far.

    No, but your question and reasonable conclusion based on that erroneous fact made me laugh. :D

    Not meaning to hijack the episode discussion, but something just occured to me.
    Didn't Bill Buchannan have a "thing" with Michelle, in Seattle I recall, just prior to last year's "day"? He sure didn't seen overwrought at her death. Not trying to make much of it, just thought it strange.

    Yes, he did. Which is why Jack offered him condolences, I imagine.

    But that was over a year and a half ago, Michelle had gone back to Tony...

    Until Jack offered his condolences I had completely forgotten about Bill and Michelle. I don't have Hour 1 available to recheck, but I'm pretty sure that the actor playing Bill did not play up that aspect of his backstory when she first died, otherwise it would have reminded me about their thing.

    Of course, it could have been that someone (actor or director or producer) felt that it was in the character's nature to suppress his personal feelings under a professional veneer. In which case he did a bang up job of it. :)

    Or they just decided that it was such a minor part of that previous season that they didn't need to go into it in this season and therefore they didn't have Buchannan react to it at all.

    Well yeah, but in that case why then have Jack specifically say to Bill "I'm so sorry about Michelle"?

    Now, I don't think we needed to see Bill drop to his knees and start wailing while clutching his chest :), but I'm pretty sure there wasn't any kind of reaction beyond a strictly professional and/or detached one.

    I guess you could read deeply into it and get that out of it, but I see it simply as Jack feeling somewhat responsible for her death (since the only reason she died was because she knew his secret) and simply expressing his remorse to someone who had known her/been her superior in the past.
