  • It's all about Jack.

    9.0
    In this episode everything gets a lot worse for Jack just when he thinks that he will get to talk to Janet to help him find Kim Then the big twist happens where the man who is supposed to be Janet's dad isn't and throughout the first few episodes I believed he was really her dad but when Jack confronted him in the hospital about him not knowing who Janet hangs out with I just thought what if he isn't Janet's dad because he has just came from nowhere and all he knows his her name In this episode Jack is reunited with Teri but they are soon separated when Jack is forced out through a phone call and Teri is taken by the imposter but she doesn't know it until Nina possibly might save her life Jack now knows that the attack on Palmer is all about him and its going to be very interesting to see what will happen next.moreless
  • Huge twist #1

    Until now, the show seemed to be jumping around without following a cohesive path, mainly with Jack's storyline. The keycard and Penticoff? Ultimately kinda pointless. While those first five episodes are still interesting to watch, this sixth one is where the season gets really, really juicy. This hour starts the first big story arc for Jack; namely, following Gaines' orders. For the first-time viewer, having Gaines phone Jack kinda throws one off and raises some confusion and intrigue, and it paves the way for a few episodes of a new, internal kind of conflict for Jack.

    The Palmer storyline also becomes much more interesting here, as the rumor about Keith killing Lyle Gibson turns out not to be a rumor at all. And the revelation about Sherry's involvement in the cover-up raises the tension something fierce and lays the groundwork for some great personal scenes between the two characters.

    This episode also contains the show's first major plot twist that has heavy repercussions on future episodes. After the scene with Gaines contacting Jack, this twist (along with the subsequent insane murder scene) REALLY throws one off. In later seasons we would probably expect something like this, but back when S1 first aired, it was a true "WTF?!" moment.

    The sun has finally risen in Los Angeles, Gaines' plan is all falling into place, and the bright morning hours of S1 are about to begin. Can you deeg eeeet?!! …I dunno what that was.



    Hourly Highlight:

    Said insane murder scene.moreless
  • This episode had a great twist

    9.5
    Jack and Teri are reunited at the hospital. Jack plans to question Janet when she wakes up, but he is interrupted when Gaines contacts him and begins forcing Jack to follow his orders.

    Palmer is angered when he learns that his family went to great lengths to conceal the truth from him.

    Kim tries to persuade Rick to help her escape from Gaines.

    Teri receives a message from Nina and discovers that she is in more danger than she realized.

    This was an ok episode until the last 15 minutes kicked in, it focused on the characters like the prevous episode but then came a twist that was really unexpected.moreless
  • Turning point!!!!

    8.0
    Kim scenes with that guy continue to serve as a filler, to fill the episode. Trying to bury a guy while they talk didn't seem to be very interesting.



    Jack side was better. He and Teri are together but not for long. This time, this Jack situation seems to be the best, since Gaines has his daughter and can demand anything from him. The details were very good.



    We have a turnig point this time, that was unexpected, and this make a good ending, since we now learn that this is not only Jack daughter that Gaines are after.



    Palmer plot continues to grow and became very interesting, when he discover that his wife's involvement.moreless
  • Turning point

    8.7
    When last episode was somehow getting to one certain level and certain point where things did not sounded too catching and we had seen all it, then this episode turns everything again upside down. First the moment when other girl's father kills her - that was like what. And when Teri gets call from Nina and we learn what is really going on - that was wow.. They really can turn something what looks quite exciting even more exciting. All the thing going on with Jack and the other person who follows him and called him and now send him to CTU.. this episode really added some new motion.moreless
