The Universe and Me

24: 1-2 p.m.

24. 5.7. Jack needs to be debriefed and only me at home raised my hand to volunteer for the job. Nathanson/Blofeld, formerly with the CIA, now working on his own initiative, seems to have taken a break from his big screen TV viewing and popped out for lunch. Or he’s on to the fact that they’re on to him and he’s disconnected his line. The terrorists are also working on their own. Since the ports are closed, the gas can’t be used against Russia. Ivan (last name either Erwich or Earwig) isn’t particular. The US will do. But the micro circuitry on the remotes have invalid codes and need to be reconfigured. Jacob Rossler begins providing the specifications but CTU finds his penthouse and wings him. With a little pressure from Curtis, Jack makes Rossler say he planned to deliver the chip (but no dip.) He still will, complete with a tracking transponder, but only if CTU provides him with what he wants, including jailbait Inessa from Kiev. Sam orders Jack to accept the deal. Jack promises to save Inessa from Rossler’s clutches, but she must have heard of his track record. She starts shooting, killing Rossler who they need to answer Ivan’s next call. Oops.

Meanwhile, in the subplot, Hobbit Sam’s junkie sister Jenny calls, begging for $500. Sam meets her outside whereupon her boyfriend beats him up and steals everything in his wallet. Martha slaps Logan (as we’d all like to) for not listening to her, then sets about writing a speech for him. Audrey can’t track down Kim. Chloe has Spenser reinstated, then un-reinstated. Do not mess with Chloe. Walt wimps out and hangs himself in the West Hallway. Best line: Jack’s “Trust me, you don’t want to go down this road with me.” Next week: The Mallrats discover a sale at The Gap and it’s a gas gas gas!
