The other main storyline is Logan visiting Martha to get her to call the Russian president’s wife. Martha is in an asylum and apparently hooked up with Agent Pierce, who has lost fifty pounds, is hooked up with some off-Saks gear, but still looks like shit. After about thirty seconds of awkwardness and crazy-style chopping up of kiwis, Martha drops the awkward bomb and stabs Logan in the collarbone. Unless Logan’s plan was to bleed to death on a couch covered in healthful snacks, I think it’s fair to say he failed, bad. Another few minutes go by before Martha calls the Russian president’s wife, and this, combined with Markov’s grimacing defiance, convinces the Russian president to agree to allow CTU to kill everyone at the consulate.
Basically, the Russians are a joke at this point. What happened to these
Back at CTU, Ricky Schroder is in from Fort Bragg to kick ass and/or take names. Bragg’s an army base, which narrows Ricky’s job down to either being a stoned cook that vandalized my car or a Delta-force psychopath. Given his haircut and his propensity for choking Morris for back-talk, I’m going with the latter. Anyway, Ricky figures out how to take down the consulate, again, not too tough a task when you can basically roll thirty dudes up to the back wall of the joint undetected. As Logan flatlines, Ricky busts in and many Russians eat cold death sucka.
At the bunker, Powers Boothe bullies Lennox into framing Assad in order to assist him in his plot to nuke the Middle East. Whatever.
Big problems for next week as Boris has met with Fayed, and the first drone is launched. What’s the target? Probably not anywhere near the Russian consulate, since everyone in on the plot is pretty comfy there and not making excuses to skip out early or anything. Come to think of it, it’s probably a good place to wait this thing out.
Straight from the headlines: Actors Chad “Hilary Swank Dumped Me” Lowe and Fisher “Michelle Pfeiffer Was Clearly Out Of My League” Stevens, along with Rob “I Still Have a Career” Morrow, drifted off-course during a charity ski event over the weekend and had to be rescued by a ski patrol, and it made the fucking news. I cannot imagine a lamer ski trip crew.
