This season’s must-be-seen-in winner is the dark suit.
Prior seasons have seen the characters in various light-color garments (who could forget last year’s terrorist mom’s no-wrinkle blouse and stay-clean slacks, for instance). Early in this season there were many characters in ligh-color garments again, but they showed up in daytime only and then died of nerve gas poisoning. By now, everybody who’s not a dead body – at least for now – is wearing dark suits. The evil Russian guy, Bierko, managed to stay in his dark suit even after the gas plant went up in flames. There’s even new suits from National Security taking over CTU, as opposed to the old CTU suits who normally took their turns at the revolving-door CTU management office.
Jack, of course, is always the exception. He’s wearing dark sweatshirt, work shirt, and jeans. Another exception is Chloe, in a nice embroidered sweater and coordinating top and slacks. Obviously, the wardrobe department’s telling us who are the two characters that really matter.
The crazy First Lady managed to get into a dark suit as the day wore on. Does that mean that President Logan’s plot is all about getting rid of her? Or does her later change of outfit into sweater and slacks signify she’ll outlive him?
