Anyway, the story ended with this tantalizer from the head writer at "24": "I can safely say that Washington has been threatened by us for the last time."
Holy crap! What does that mean? Are they going to destroy Washington at the end of this season?
Are the insane "patriots" at Starkwood going to let loose a cloud of neorotoxins on the populace, having us all writhe our way to a painful death? Or will they introduce an even larger terrorist menace (there's still quite a few episodes left to go) to obliterate our fair city?
We need to take these things seriously. After all, "24" had an African-American President (actually, two) in its early seasons, and now we have one in real life!
