Jack and LumberJack

One thing about the previouslies for tonight’s episode that I caught:

Bearded Logan (a.k.a. the titular LumberJack of this post) told Jack last episode: “Come and see me.  And come alone.” 

Is Logan asking Jack over for what the kids call a booty call?

Tonight’s episode, to me, was a bit of a disappointment.  I’m no fan of the treason-at-the-highest-levels storyline, and they spent most of the episode dealing with that and Morris’ demon alcohol drama.

Jack pretty much visited Logan and played dress up.  However, I thought the scenes between the two were great.

On the other hand, at least they got those other storylines moving along so the focus can return to the adventures of Jack Bauer.

One other thing I didn’t like about this episode-I don’t know if it’s my hearing, but I felt like a lot of people, Gredenko, Fayed (who finally makes a reappearance) and Palmer, were mumbling.  I’m sure with Gredenko and Assad it was because of their accents were muddling things up.  But Palmer’s been speaking in a whispery-sing-song voice all day, and it’s hard to understand what was going on.

Some other thoughts:

-So Logan’s been spending his forced retirement watching TV, growing a beard and wearing plaid.  Ain’t that the American dream?

-Logan isn’t (or doesn’t seem to be) paranoid anymore. It’ll be interesting to see where they go with this character.  Of course, he’s doing it to win back the First Lady of Cleavage.  Which will be nice, because when Jean Smart returns to the show, my traffic will go through the roof again.  What’s good for 24 is good for King Tom.

-Let me get this straight: Jack’s going to an embassy.  Does anyone else think, based on his track record, that this is a good idea?

-It’s nice to know that when terrorists have their hands on nuclear bombs that Logan has time to match his tie to his suit.

-Speaking of suits, where did Jack get his from?  Is he borrowing one of Logan’s?  Will he catch some treason cooties or something?
