It’s getting better.
Seeing the Hobbit in full meltdown was awesome; in fact, the CTU subplot has been a highlight of the season so far.
Though I was rooting for a rocket to take out the Russians and First Lady, their survival could actually advance the story to one of those trademark “‘24′ turning points.” The show’s notorious for making you think that the season’s going in one direction, and then progressing into something completely different (and almost always bigger and cooler).
The big shock for next week? I’m hoping it’s that Kim returns only to die a horrible death.
