  • Jack's reunion with Teri and Kim is short lived as Jack is arrested and questioned. Senator Palmer thinks he knows the reason for the attempt on his life.

    The Drazens officially put "Plan B" into effect when Alexis Drazen kills off the last of Ira Gaines' men. Another "quiet" episode per se but I still enjoyed it very much. One reason for that is the scenes of Jack's meetings with Alberta Green and Ryan Chapelle. Despite seeing some rather dramatic moments with Jack jumping out his chair and raising his voice, these moments did not seem contrived which is perfect example of Kiefer Sutherland's acting talents. This episode also contains Tamara Tunie's best moment of the series when Alberta sees right through Nina's lie about wanting to take an hour off to take it easy. The use of tight close ups of Sarah Clarke and Tunie was a very good idea for the episode proves that drama is just as important as action and it does so very well.moreless
  • Palmer's new shooter.

    This episode marks the end of Gaines' group of people when the new assassin wipes them out The attack on Palmer is far from over and Jack knows it but he can't do nothing about because he is being questioned by District Director Ryan despite Jack telling him his wife and daughter was in danger In this episode we also find out there is another person on the inside working against Palmer I know people have said its the worst episode of the season so far but I thought it was good and its the start of a new beginning.moreless
  • Eye of the storm

    So this episode bores the stuffing out of people everywhere. Things slow down a lot more than they did in "8am - 9am," giving all the characters some time to reel in.For his actions during the Gaines arc, Jack is placed in CTU custody, confined to the Situation Room for pretty much the whole episode and going over what happened the last thirteen hours. With that going on, Teri and Kim are sent to a clinic. In some new character combination, Nina is sent to look after them.By the end, Palmer finds out about Jack's involvement in Operation Nightfall and comes to a (wrong) conclusion about why he wants him dead. So what does he do? He marches right into CTU and demands a word with Jack! More new character combination!We're aware all along that the threat isn't over; like the characters, the big plot is merely taking a break. Andre and his brother Alexis are in Los Angeles, wiping out the last traces of Gaines' Plan A and preparing to put their Plan B into play. What more ominous way to convey this than the presence of a suspicious "FBI agent" watching Teri and Kim at the clinic?With this episode, the plot threads started in the pilot are no more, and new threads take their time to weave a great finale for the season.Hourly Highlight:Alexis Drazen killing Kevin.moreless
  • Not So good!!!!

    The best part here is this new shooter that appeared and killed the rest of the gaines crew.

    Jack Bauer is interrogated during the whole episode, because the writers need more time to think what to do with him, or what task should they givem him.

    Tony's attitude during his conversation with Chapelle was nice. Chapelle seems that type of character that is there just to complicated Jack´s Life.

    Kim and Teri continue in dangerous, but Nina notice something. It seem that someone in the Palmer administration can put him in danger.

    The highlight of this episode was Palmer entering CTU asking to speak to Jack Bauer. It was unexpected and a brilliant way to end this not so good episode.moreless
  • Still in danger...

    Oh, it looks like Jack's longest day is going to be very long and dangerous. It looked like the danger for Bauer family is over but no - they are taken to hospital and Nina goes there too and suspicious things start to happen. And that is not it. There are new assassins in play and one of them has busy hour. Also Palmer is not safe. I am not sure if it was shown before but now I realized that the right hand man of him is behind it all on that side. Wow.. and they have no idea. And it is not easy for Palmers with their son.

    And the ending.. really cliffhanger...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Andre: I appreciate the offer, Kevin, but as you Americans so often say, "Plan B" is already in effect.

    • Teri: Nina, what's happening with Jack?
      Nina: He's being questioned.
      Teri: Is he in trouble?
      Nina: That depends. He broke a few laws last night, but he was doing it to save you and Kim, so I think they'll understand.
      Teri: Unless he pisses them off first.
      Nina: (laughs) My thoughts exactly.

    • Kevin: (to Alexis) Go to hell.

    • Novick: That was the Pentagon. Remember you asked me to look up the name Jack Bauer?
      Palmer: Who is he?
      (Mike leans over, and whispers to Palmer)
      Novick: He used to be in Special Forces. He led a six man team into Kosovo a couple of years ago.
      Palmer: That's what it was. The Drazen mission.
      Novick: He hand-picked picked his own men and trained them. Only Bauer survived.
      Palmer: He blames me for the death of his team; that's what this is about.

    • Milo: What do you think they're gonna do to Jack?
      Tony: They're not gonna name a street after him.

    • Chappelle: (to Jack) I've got five priority cases on my desk this morning. Your name's on all of them.

    • Tony: Let me save you some time, Mr. Chappelle. I'm not the biggest fan of Jack Bauer. I don't agree with the way he delegates authority and I don't like the way he runs operations. But since midnight last night you won't get me to disapprove of a single action he's taken.

    • Green: One thing I have a great eye for is B.S. If you want an hour off, tell me where you're really going.
