Just erring on the side of caution. Spoil away.

TV Guide has a nice recap of the mid-season ender episode "Warriors". Interesting development developing is the tag-teaming of President Kirkman and practically-rogue FBI agent Hannah Wells. I could see sort-of a Jack Bauer/Chloe relationship, only in reverse.

Jesus.
And, we all saw that the shot was "pulled" off target. Didn't we?
Not trying to be super critical, but I think viewers should be treated like they can function beyond working a remote.


I guess I'm one of the few actually enjoying the show for what it is. I don't think too hard and just enjoy it for the twists and turns it has. It it feasible that he survived the shot like he did? No, but it's a TV show for goodness sakes. If you don't like it you can always turn it off or not watch it at all.

You sound like my brother. I realize it's entertainment, and we have to suspend belief to get through it, but that sequence was just too stupid to have gotten filmed. What's next, blow half his head off and explain that away somehow?
I'm fond of the show, although it is just a prime time soap opera.

Felt good when Agent Wells finally unloads the beans to President Kirkman.

Sad about the deputy director's son.

Nice, moving speech from Seth about Kirkman's character (is his name an homage to the original Star Trek Captain Kirk?).

MacLeish is deaded. Now what?? And what the hell happened on that mission?

I didn't expect that.

I knew MacLeish and his wife were part of something bigger, but I thought they were just in it for themselves. I didn't think they were true believers in "the cause". I'm still not sure he was, but she sure was.

I'm trying to figure out why Agent Wells was the only person in proximity for the "take down", that made no sense except to allow the the plot line to continue with at least a dead VP.

Thank you for saying this.

I feel the same way about many shows that get picked apart here. There's always some criticism about weapon handling or something else. It's a TV show for crying out loud. Meant to be entertainment and nothing else.

That said, I can't stand the show mostly because of Kiefer. I like him in some things (he shines in westerns) but mostly not. The first few episodes of this show were good and enough to keep me watching, but his character just drove me nuts enough to stop watching.

Didn't see any of that coming. I'm glad the wife offed herself. I've wanted to do it myself for some time haha.. Only lead now is the woman that found out agent Wells wasn't in custody. So yeah, now what?

Just finished this week's episode and I have no clue. Glad MacLeish's wife is dead but not sure where they take the story from here.

Were they trying to play the "we don't know who we can trust" card for all it's worth?

He's got that squint that I would question, but they could just be playing it up like they do.

I don't think Aaron is the traitor, which makes me wonder about the SS agent too. But he could have croaked President Bauer any time. Another fake out.

I really like that Secret Service guy, I'm gonna be pissed if he's bad. That thought hadn't even crossed my mind until you guys brought it up, damn.

Smiley Woman just 'happened' to show up and begin asking about Agent Wells just after her, supposedly clandestine, super-secret, meeting with Kirkman. She was most likely tipped off by someone who knew of the meeting.
I think that her choice of Special Prosecutor (Forstell?) may well be in on it, but that might be too obvious to be true.

Ah yes, that guy I am suspicious of. Didn't know Wells trusted him that much.
