Forum: The Situation Room > Phillip Bauer - Charles Logan connection

OK. I don't believe anyone would argue that Day 6 had some "issues" - not necessarily with continuity, but rather character's motivations. Phillip Bauer had no depth, Josh Bauer really is "just a nephew" and his mother gets over Graem's death by clicking her heels twice (not even 3 times!)

But what I don't get is Phillip leaving the phone for Jack to call Logan. It seemed forced to use Logan to bridge Jack's focus during these hours while Wayne Palmer gets lit up. It seems like the top performers from day 5 are just bunched in this span just because we didn't know what else to do with them.

Marilyn not being overtly disturbed by Graem's death isn't a real plot hole in my opinion: it was a loveless marriage to say the least. She stated on at least one occasion that she was trying to find a pretext to end the marriage; that is why she was spying on Graem when he went to 9421 Glasgow before Day 6. Also Josh said all they ever did was argue. Also Graem was a giant worm!
And with Phillip leaving the phone for Jack to call Logan, it did actually make sense to me. Phillip realized that he was exposed and fugitive now in the US, so he might as well be a superstar in China. However he wasn't a terrorist and sincerely wanted the government to stop the nukes in the meantime, so he left Jack his next lead.
Overall though I do have issues with Season 6, it's just that these two items don't happen to be my own. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 07:56, November 5, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing up the phone left by Philip deal. That randomly popped into my head the other day and I seem to vaguely interpreting it as him helping out his son Jack by letting him at least find an unlikely menace that was key, I just forgot the following connections because it felt a little too bit hokey for me.

Overall, I found that season better than the final one but the two quibbles for me will always be Curtis' death and not making as much use with the Audrey/nephew storylines.--Gunman6 (talk) 02:40, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
