Respectful Insolence

24 blogging: Holy crap!

Holy crap! They killed off…

{Spoiler below the fold–if you’re in a time zone west of Eastern Standard, haven’t yet seen the episode because of the time difference, and don’t want to know what happens at the end of the episode, don’t read below the fold. You’ve been warned!}

Edgar at the end of tonight’s episode of 24 by nerve gas!

I’m bummed. As annoying as he could be at times, I kind of liked his rather whiny, pudgy character.

It’s a rather nifty cliffhanger ending, though, with nerve gas released into CTU headquarters and the core staff trapped in the situation room.

And we’re only halfway through the season. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.

    Halfway through the season and half of CTU down…

    I know! poor Edgar. And poor Chloe! They were both so irritating but endearing with their love/hate relationship.

    Being a last year 24 junkie, I was not surprised at the ending once Edgar had gone downstairs to investigate.

    One thing that bugged me, though…what were the ‘brains’ at CTU thinking? CTU is a high value target, just for the political, tactical and terror value, and it seemed to be security-business as usual.The pass card is coded, and their system does not display the name of the person? I have gone into secure areas where my coded pass card contains my thumb print, photo and name, in addition to identifying who I am (organization, etc.).

    CBS 2 and A&E are doing re-runs of the years where I was not tuned in. Good thing I only need 4 hours sleep.
