24:' Episode 17, midnight-1 a.m.
What do Angelina Jolie and Larry Moss have in common? They both effing hate Jon Voight.
Voight, as you know by now, plays Hodges, the jilted, militaristic, crazy-eyed SOB who runs Starkwood. Hodges took a turn toward extra crazy last night, which left him with blood on his hands and Darth Vader in his larynx: "... A country I've served faithfully for 30 years!!!" (His octave freefall also reminded me of Jafar in Disney's Aladdin, when he transforms into giant Jafar ... anyone?) We'll get to Hodges' trail of dead a little later.
Starkwood's band of mercenaries has Larry and co. stonewalled in front of an empty warehouse. (The President of the United States sent you? Never heard of her.) Hodges rolls up in his Hummer and tells Larry to beat it. Back at FBI headquarters, a shaky but coherent Jack contacts Doug Knowles, a Starkwood boardmember who'd been cooperating with the late Sen. Mayer's investigation. He agrees to help Tony locate the bioweapons. This means Larry must create a diversion. So Larry does what he does best — act like a prick — which gets him punched in the face and allows Tony to disappear into the shadows.
