Last night, after a shoot-out in a
Anyway, the baddest bad guy that had been shooting at them was lying dead on the floor....well, he wasn't exactly dead, he was only kinda dead. After multiple quick shots of his quivering hand, this critically injured man, riddled with bullets and bleeding out of dozens of new and interesting places, suddenly grabs a pistol (lying conveniently near his gun hand), jumps up and fires at Jack. OldBuddyPaul sees what's happening, pushes Jack out of the way and takes a bullet in the belly. Jack immediately blows about 45 more rounds into bad guy, ensuring (finally) that he not only is he not only merely dead, he's really most sincerely dead.
That, my friends, may be the "Jump the Shark" moment. One of the oldest cliches in the book, on a show that prides itself on avoiding cliches, is where the bad guy is not quite dead and enacts his revenge at the final moment.
I hope it's not the case, but we'll see.
