Halfway through 24 and I just had to pop in to say ...  

The cause of the exclamation above mentioned in the comments, so if you haven't watched it yet, and are not spoiled, don't open.

So it was weird, while watching it, I thought, hmm, Graham's son looks like Kim, but it wasn't until I got to TWoP and read everyone thinking the same thing and therefore KID IS JACK'S SON that I wanted to slap myself and ask who the hell was watching the soaps all those years because obviously I wasn't to not even go there.

Heh. Truth or red herring, who knows? I just love this show and all of it's over-the-top, soapy mixed in with the threads of reality. I love, love, love. And I REALLY love how when Jack isn't barking orders, saving the world (or more accurately, L.A.) or torturing people, he speaks in this very soft and sweet, utterly respectful manner. Love.

Eh episode over all, which would have been helped by some Jack/Chloe interaction that goes beyond a three syllable phone call. Grrr. I want some face time, people! Sigh, but even an eh ep of 24 I LOVE!!!

The rest of the episode was okay (the weakest so far) and I'm getting annoyed with lack of Chloe and Jack! I want to see Chloe and Jack!

But man the fact that Paul McCrane from last season is JACK'S BROTHER!!!!!!!! DAYUM!!!! And by the final scene, boy, can we say their issues go beyond sibling rivarly.

When I saw they were brothers, I just about died. I don't know if I missed it but were his wife and Jack an item before they got married, or did she just have a thing for him?

I don't know if they were together, or she just had a thing, but I'm leaning towards that they were an item because of the way Jack looked at her when he first saw her.

Damnit, I want the true love of Jack and Chloe to assert itself!!!!

Damn, why do all these other people have to keep getting between these two? Of course it does mean that Jack and Chloe will end up together in the end. :)

Yes, overall a bit of a bore but the brother reveal and all the little currents - sweet. And yes, Jack had the velvet going during that scene.

Yse, but I think this is just a set-up show and they have those every once in a while, so it's okay. And the shock of him being his brother was quite, quite awesome.
