    You don't think there's significance to the fact that the security guards wear red shirts? ;)

    Jack definitely killed him at the end of that season. It was on a pier in a shipyard and was right before the Nina/Terri scene that ended S1.

    He's not only merely dead, he's really most sincerely dead.

    (and thus concludes my homage to "Scrubs" ;))

    That's unfortunate. But maybe the guy faked his death and there is hope yet. Body double with extensive plastic surgery and DNA retro virus or something. Otherwise my post looks stupid.

    I'm just saying I don't think that any defense would matter, if there's any consistency in the 24 universe. If acting under duress to save your wife's life isn't an excuse, I'm not convinced that following orders would be. In any case, since it's the CTU guys that have him in custody, I don't think they're going to take too kindly to someone who was checking up on them even if it had been legitimate; the fact that he was working with a terrorist conspirator, whether he knew it or not, I'll be surprised if he gets out of the interrogation room any time soon. Then again, nothing should surprise me in this show.

    One is "putting your personal interest ahead of the interests of the country," and one isn't.

    As far as he knew, he was working for the White House, which has at least indirect authority over CTU operations. Assuming they believe him, I don't think they'll torture him. They'll use him for information, once they figure out that his contact in the White House is conspiring with terrorists. And, he'll probably freely give the information once he figures out that Walt was lying to him. But, at the end of the day, I don't think he'll be arrested or fired.

    Actually, the actor who plays Derek is only 17 according to IMDB. Better than usual for Hollywood.

    The Dennis Hopper character may be dead, but his accent was simply just too outrageous to die. So maybe someone else will come back channeling "Wictor Dwazen." :)

    That is the oldest looking 17 year old I've seen in quite a while, if so.

    I was worried after the first few hours that they were going to overuse and misuse the term "data mining" because they used it several times. Since then it hasn't shown up much, and we are back to "opening sockets". Now I sort of miss it.

    Personally, I could have done without the soap opera drama between Jack & Audrey. It was just a bit too much.

    I continue to hope that the President who was in the plane crash comes to the rescue. I'm sick of the idiot.

    Once again Chloe has some of the best lines.

    And she has the best face to deliver those lines. Who else could pull that off?

    Remember how much we all loved Chloe last season when she pulled out the automatic rifle and blew 'em all away! Ahhh, good times.

    May I ask a silly question? Since I didn't watch S3, I'm not up on the problems that President Keeler had. How long ago was he elected (in 24 time)? I know it's been 18 months between S3 and S4.

    The current season is S5. Keeler was elected between S3 and S4. In S3, he was campaigning against Palmer, and Palmer quit the race, in part to cover up a scandal, and in part because his ex-wife had been killed. I think the time between S3 and S4 was also 18 months, though it's not clear how long there was between S3 and the election.

    In S4, Air Force One was shot down by a military jet that was stolen by terrorists. Keeler survived, but was comatose as that day ended. It's now 18 months later, and we've not yet been told what happened to him.

    I will repeat again that it is not unbelievable that if Keeler had woke up and realized he'd just been on the Presidential plane that was shot down and that resulted in the death of his son, that he wouldn't be running back to the Oval Office.

    Thanks! And I can't count either, which I guess is why I needed help. :) What I wondering was if Keeler's term had expired, if enough time had passed. Once his term is up it doesn't matter how recovered he is.

    Looks like they're gonna need another replacement Prez, cause this one don't look like he's gonna make it all the way through.
