4 from 24: More on hour 22

by Meredith O'Brien, posted May 18th 2007 12:38PM

Marilyn and Josh Bauer*Warning, spoilers ahead from this week's episode.*

Will the 24 season finale answer viewer questions, like what in the world Papa Bauer wants with his grandson, whether Jack will thwart his daddy's evil deeds and whether former President Charles Logan is among the living?

Who knows if we'll get satisfactory answers to these questions, but, before we turn our sights to the final two hours, here are a few more moments from hour 22 to savor:

Quote of note: This week's top quote award goes to chief of staff Tom Lennox after he watched -- via hidden camera -- White House aide Lisa Miller have relations with her traitorous boyfriend. "And . . . finally . . . we're done," Lennox said. (Did I hear envy in his voice?)

Moment of tension between CTU staffers: Sure, Nadia Yassir took over as interim CTU chief a mere THREE HOURS AGO. But in those three hours CTU was infiltrated by Cheng Zhi's band of mercenaries in order to kidnap Jack Bauer's "nephew" Josh. So, in 24-land, that means that someone from "Division" has to burst into CTU, disrupt the agents' terrorist hunting and make egocentric power plays.

Quote of note II: "Your grandfather is a visionary," Cheng told Josh. (A close third place quote of the week would be National Security Advisor Karen Hayes calling Papa Bauer "a sociopath.")

ACLU nightmare moment of the week: Jack wrenching the neck of the head tattooed/tank-topped mercenary AFTER he'd already subdued him via choking. That extra neck twisting surely must've irked our ACLU friends.

I absolutely loved Rena Sofer when she was on General Hospital over a decade ago. She was a total scenestealer as Lois, a tough middle-class Brooklynite who married into the rich Quartermaine clan and butted heads with them. She was THE REASON to watch it.

Surprisingly, I can't stand her at all on "24". Although I think there may be more to the character of Marilyn, she hasn't done a good job at all. She has brought absolutely no gravitas or nuance to the role. I can see why they've been calling her a "show-killer".

You're all wrong! Josh is Angelina Jolie's adopted son from Zimbabwe.

Inside scoop:
Josh is not Jack's son.
Larry Birkhead is Josh's father. You can bet on it. You'll see.

If poster 1 is hinting what I think..it's what I told my wife during the show. Marylin has been with all 3 Bauer men (unless there are others in the family we haven't meet yet) but i think Josh is Jack's brother...not his son.

Hell, in the real world, they should have made egocentric power plays much earlier. How many times has CTU been compromised now between all out attacks and moles?

I don't think that Josh is Jacks son unless they screw with what we know about the character. From what we know, Jack dated Marilyn before his brother. He later got married and had Kim. When Jacks marriage was in trouble and he was separated, he took up with Nina, since Josh is much younger than Kim, he must have cheated on his wife with his brothers wife, which I find out of character for Jack. Who knows, it wouldn't be the first time writers screwed with a characters personality.

That whiny kid is SO NOT Graham's son. Say hello to Kim's little brother. Maybe they will use that angle next season.

Was watching Seinfeld earlier this week. And who shows up? Marylin Bauer!

I realize several well known actors/actresses appeared on the show before they hit it big ... it's the lesser-known folks that actually surprise me. : P
