    So how did Cara get Jack's phone number for his PDA? You would think it would be a private number.

    And how did they know when Kim would be at the airport?

    Also, that was a pretty fancy laptop to have a webcam on the BACK.

    Don't forget Tony only turned in the past few hours ... I'm sure Tony would have had Jack's number. Kim wasn't flying covert airlines - and any decent spy could have a remounted camera.

    Jack does seem to be the only guy who can change the world.

    And Janice? Get a boyfriend ... or a girlfriend ... accomplishing a task is the only reward you will get working in a "CTU" style environment. You're EXPECTED to do your job and do it well. Anything less is failure, anything more is just doing your job.

    Just like real life! :)

    ...and how did they know Kim would sit anywhere NEAR them?

    ...and that her unknown-to-her-bodyguard-giving-her-creepy-vibes would go to the bathroom when long-haired-loudmouth went to get coffee?

    The only explanation now is that Kim is really a crossbreed between a human and a shark. Every time she's around, the plot jumps over her.

    The...
    Perhaps the hidden message in the last episode is 'stay out of airport restrooms'.
    They seem to be a favorite place to do bad things. And why do the restrooms
    always seem to be devoid of other passengers? :whatdidid

    The other passengers know how dangerous airport bathrooms are and avoid them. :D

    Personally, I thought the ending was rather weak. It just did not leave me wanting more and look forward to season 8.

    Well it turned out to be the morality play that I expected ... how far is too far?

    A couple of open issues at the end ... perhaps we don't need to know what happens in hour 25 as much as we know how the events of the last 24 have affected the players.

    I gotta agree with da bear guy. Jack just getting all soft and mushy at the end seemed really out of character. The rest of the ending was like an old Saturday afternoon serial. Disappointment given how good the rest of the season was.

    John and Fluffy,

    I don't understand the disappointment. Jack is a tough guy sure, but at the end he became what Larry and everyone who loves him would have wanted him to become; someone with remorse and regret for doing things the way he did them, no matter the cost. His speech when Renee was asking him what she should do now was one of the better written scenes I have seen in a long while.

    1) What does Renee do behind closed doors to Wilson?

    2) Does President Taylor get divorced?

    Another great season of 24 comes to an end. Can't wait until January!. Had a couple of observations on picture quality. Did anyone else in the LA area watching have any moments of pixal breakups (4 times) and lost picture/sound (3 times) for a several seconds?. The lost picture/sound cause a few seconds of lost dialog at critical times during the show. Tried to go back and come out of the commercial earlier, but to no avail. I had DVR'd like always and delayed the screening to avoid the commercials like I'm sure, a lot of people do. Have NEVER had any issues with picture quality in the past. A few breakups now and then, but nothing like last night. Kind of a bummer since it was the end of the season. Maybe just a HD glitch?. I hope its an isolated hiccup.

    My disappointment came more with how the show did not leave me wanting more. Seasons prior left you salivating and counting the days until Jack's return, not this one!

    Plus, I think I grew a little more disgusted with Tony's I'm a bad guy - I'm a good guy - I'm a bad guy - I'm a good guy - No, I am rotten SOB - I'm really a selfish revenge seeking good guy.

    That makes sense. You're right that it didn't leave as much up in the air as in the past, I think it still left enough out there that we can't wait to find out where several things are going to end up and made this season as enjoyable as ever.

    Tony's whole story was something that couldve been wrapped up A LOT sooner than it was. I have been saying it since he flipped back and forth, something wasn't right with what was going on with him.

    I don't know! I look at the President Taylor and her family story being one of those soapy twists the show could have done without.

    I was thinking the same thing in regards to Tony as you. I really thought Jack was going to do him in with the garage door. I would have preferred to see it end there then stretch it out another 30+ minutes..


    Personally, I can not wait until they bring Bill back. ;) After all, we all know that he actually managed to escape into a scape hatch int he floor just as the explosion was going off :lol:

    This was one of the more annoying part of this season.

    I thought the finale sucked. A very weak ending to a weak year. Tony constantly flip-flopping, plot holes you could drive a C-130 through, Jack incapacitated for half the season, and then leaving so many loose ends. Very sloppy, unimaginative writing.
