Jack Bauer Tally: Hour 11

Jack seems to be off his game a bit. Then again, he's been in a Chinese prison camp for a couple of years, so I imagine he's not in prime shape. He didn't even kill anyone this week, and he only killed two people last week. His season total isn't even up to what he managed to do in 10 minutes breaking Secretary Heller and Audrey out of their hostage situation in Season 4.

His two kills from last week saved Milo from getting gunned down and his sister-in-law, Nathan Petrelli's wife from Heroes, from being caught in the clutches of Jack's evil Dad. One son has killed nearly 100 people in service to his country, the other tried to foment a foreign war and had an ex-President assassinated to frame his brother. One can only imagine the dinner table conversations.

This week's bloodless (other than the bomb in the Press room, called by yours truly) episode showed Jack meeting with Charles Logan, and the prominent featuring of a Bible verse -- with the key phrase being "gave me a place to stand." A place to stand in Russia, Mr. Logan? That's what I'm thinking. Jack is in the process of accompanying Charles to the Russian consulate, and Jack doesn't do well with consulates.

For any of you interested, Jack's sidearm this season and last appears to be the Heckler & Koch USP Compact:

The USP Compact comes in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Wouldn't surprise me to see Jack using the .45 ACP, though compared to the .40 it doesn't offer much more in the way of stopping power at the cost of a few rounds per mag. Of course, if you can hit every time you shoot, how many rounds do you really need?

The Score so far:

Biting A Carotid9.0 -1 for lack of Universal Protocol
Shooting Curtis-8-10 own goal, +2 neck shot over a hostage
Shooting guard while handcuffed7.0+2 for while handcuffed
Handgun6.0+1 for saving hostages (Milo & Graeme's wife)
Handgun6.0+1 for saving hostages
