    Sometime after 1 PM, after the Pizza Hut guy delivers to CTU (you know if they let in IT assassins, then the Pizza guy probably has his own credentials) and Jack splits the pizza with his two women, then he'll grab today's USA today and hit the can for a power dump before taking off after terrorists again.

    Episode ends with the usual 4-way Split screen:
    upper left: President Logan curling up in fetal position under table
    upper right: Edgar sneaking last piece of pizza from Pizza Hut box
    lower left: Naked Mandy preparing to give Tony a spongebath.
    lower right: Jack realizing there's no TP in the stall he's in (damn government cutbacks)

    I don't think anybody mentioned this, but I just rewatched the episode, and when "head guy at CTU" ask's the mole who sent you, they pan back to Cloe, and you can she her shake her head side to side, as to signal him to say No. Is she in on it?

    If somehow the incapacitated President were 100% recovered, there wouldn't be a fight over him taking over. All he would have to do is send a signed letter to the leaders of the House and Senate saying he was taking back the Presidency, and it's done.

    Since he didn't "volunteer" to temporarily give up his Presidency, the VP and cabinet could send a letter to congress saying they didn't think he was up to it, and congress could stop him from retaking office by a 2/3 vote.

    No--I think he was asked the question, didn't answer, and she shook her head in disgust ("I slepot witgh this traitor?!?").

    I don't know it looked like he looked at her for some sort of response. Maybe she knew ( he told her) why he was there, and she thought it was better if he didn't say?

    I want to know about the hangar too. They should find that out pretty quick i'd think. Also didn't Walt say something about 'clearing an entrance' or something to the mole? (to get in the gunman) I was half expected to see an unguarded one, just like the one exit in the other season.

    As far as the back room, at least they find out pretty quickly things have been breached and they are checking logs etc right in the middle of crises. It's the best they can do without locking it down i guess.

    Kiss him already!!! None of y'all discussed that... I thought Kim Raver played the emotional reunion quite well. I like her character more this season, thus far.

    I am not generally a big fan of mixing the lovey stuff in with my actiony type shows. But, can't help but wonder how this tension b/t Audrey and Diane is going to play out and why? Is Diane a mole? Did she get a big payoff for telling someone about Jack?

    Other thought - Does it seem like Samwise keeps mum about most everything while Buchanan is in the room?

    Or I am just still paranoid, even tho they've given us such a large quantity of moles to play with already?

    I LOVE this show!!!

    I thought about the ex-President angle too... but figured this was incredibly unlikely, because unless he died or resigned, he would've resumed holding the office of President. If he died, he isn't about to be organizing a coup, and if he's alive but he resigned, what motivation would he have for organizing a coup?

    Maybe President Logan has a whole Manchurian Candidate thing going for him, giving orders then blocking them out of his memory. Maybe HE should be the one committed. :)

    I do agree about the whole cell phone thing. If you see someone who isn't Jack in CTU with a cell phone, it's a bad sign. What kind of intelligence organization has a facility that doesn't block outgoing RF transmissions? At the very least, they should have a picocell that allows cell phone transmissions, but records them for later analysis. Yes, I know, I'm trying to insert reality into a show where reality doesn't belong. Sorry, I'll stop.

    What I want to know is how did the rats get exposed to the nerve gas?

    The canisters were in sealed containers inside a giant metal box, and after they opened the big metal box, a bad guy scanned for leakage and found none.

    I guess the rats breached the perimeter.

    I was going to mention this.. and the fact that if there were enough nerve gas released to kill that many rats that far out... I'd think it'd be enough to kill a person, or at the very least make them rather ill.

    And of course, the same goes for the fact that there was supposedly enough gas released to get a chemical analysis done that proves that it's weaponized nerve gas.

    I may be missing something, but I'm confused about why Spenser was tracking Jack from the server room. I thought all he knew was that he was letting in the tech guy to put a tap on the servers. He didn't know that Jack was a target. So why was he looking at video of Jack?

    Not sure how the rats were exposed initially, but as for your other questions, I basically assumed:

    1) The gas that killed the rats dissipated before any humans were exposed, or an extremely tiny amount of gas is needed to kill a rat, so little that the amount is not enough to make an human feel anything, and

    2) They got the readings for the weaponized gas from the rat's bloodstream - since their little hearts would have stopped pumping at the time of death, the blood would still have contained whatever ppm of gas that killed them.

    I'm certainly no scientist, but those explanations are at least plausible to me.

    Walt called Spenser and told him Jack is a priority.

    I thought all along that Chloe's boytoy didn't know that Walt was a bad guy, and while I know anything's possible, I'm convinced that he believed he was just working for the White House.

    I agree that Audrey's less annoying than she was last season, but of all the characters that have come and gone, I don't see why they chose to keep her over certain others.

    Perhaps President Keeler is in some sort of coma, and will wake up some time today. Maybe Logan will have botched things so badly by dinner time, that Keeler will wake up, reclaim his powers, and save the day... with Jack, of course. Just a theory - it could certainly just be a plot hole that they never said what happened to him.

    Didn't the hobbit say last week (whenever he first showed up) that he was from "district?" Which I assumed was some new layer in the unit/division/whatever structure. Now this week he (or someone) said he was from "division," which of course we're very familiar with, although we have no idea what it is. Did I hear wrong last week?

    We only get to see division in day 6. :) My guess is audrey is there because she needed work and committed to the show. Too bad Kim Bauer couldn't do the same.

    They had Tony in the clinic at CTU? They must have quite a medical staff there, I thought his injuries were fairly severe. Of course, I suppose he has to heal up pretty fast in order to be at Jack's side before the day is done.

    Loved the exchange between Chloe and Edgar. Chamomile tea indeed!

    They seem to change names every 6 hours or so so Tony might get back to action by hour 6 or 7 or could wait till hour 12.

    Tony also could pull through quicker because like Jack he has a pretty thick head.

    Maybe they beefed up medical after losing patients in the last crisis.
