When Gredenko said I tink I know how we can get through this, I told my wife, “He’s going to chop off his arm.” Not because it made sense of course. Precisely the opposite in fact. It’s like a corollary to the George Costanza theory: whatever you can surmise would happen, no matter how batshit crazy, that’s likely the direction the writers will choose.
I will admit that I was wrong on my other guess last night. I said that Chloe would peel back her human mask to expose a carnivorous alien who would then promptly eat the heads off all the CTU employees. It was a reach, even for 24. In my defense, the season isn’t over yet.]]>
