  • Jack deals with the agent working against him.

    7.5
    In the previous episode Jack found that the mole working against him could be Nina and in this episode he looks at the best way to deal with it and while this is happening Kim and Janet escape their captors but must find a way to get away from them for good This episode wasn't as good as the first two but was still a decent episode.
  • The writers try to by time!!!!!

    6.5
    When Jack discoved that Nina was the mole, I thought that this episode would be great. However, this turns to be nothing for now. Even if the Nina is the mole, Jack is enable to discover this information for now.



    The writers managed to buy some time with Kim plot. The ending was good, for Kim friend´s, other than that, the only thing good here is the revelation and now we know why this is happening.



    Mandy plot is over, and even that managed to buy some time.



    Teri continues looking for her daughter.



    Palmer plot continues to grow slower, but now we know what is happening.moreless
  • Another good episode

  • Developing story..

    8.5
    Oh.. I really think they are getting more and more intense.. this episode was very action packed but not in the way the previous one was - when last episode had shooting and that kind then this episode.. the Kim storyline.. she and her friend escaping, the cat-mouse came in that old house.. that weird man.. also the tension on CTU and Nina involved and then figuring out that she is not. I do not know - it was somehow too easy and now, I think, we all think it is Tony. I think the best part I liked this episode was that Kim's storyline started to work and that we started to get the idea what is behind all that. Not that I like the storyline, but it is less off the other story now.moreless
  • I have mixed feelings about this episode.

    7.2
    A part of me thinks really good, another not so good. The episode is by no means bad but still isn't as good as others, as nothing very particular seems to happen, but then we have another 21 hours to fill yet there'd be no sense rushing things. Basically its a break down on posotive and negative, that in the end both weight out each other. The posotive is...it has some strong acting and on the whole characters develop. There are some good moments of suspence and action when the girls are running from there captives. These scenes are really well filmed and are effective but i'm still unsure why they have been kidnapped in the first place. Jack's partner turns out not to be the traitor we all thought but i have a fair idea who might. These are all strengths and the weaknesses lie on the slow development of the story line and some unexplained situations that don't make a lot of sense. Whether this is on purpose and we're to find out later on i'm not sure but it does kind of leave you slightly unsatisfied. No doubt there just mini cliffhangers that will be picked up and answered at a later date. The scenes where the girls are running are good but running into one bad guy after the next seems unlikley. It really must be a rough neighbour hood! It is also gritty in places and more violent but this isn't neccersarily a bad thing. The scenes with the president also seem a little pointless and the hitman and two 'lesbian girls' are not explained enough. Especially when one is shot your left wondering why? Again something i hope is explained in either the next or later episodes. Overall it is just about above average and thats being pretty generous at that.moreless
