  • Jack escapes from Secret Service custody and continues his search for Teri and Kim. CTU helps provide new leads.

    Another strong episode. The excitement never lets up which is a great reason why this episode works so well. For a brief moment we see that even Jack needs to rest a little while. One of the things I liked about this episode is that Jack's "hostage", despite the fact that she showed some empathy towards him, still told police about his whereabouts. All she had to do was bring the car over and she was free to go but obviously there is no way she could know that so you can't blame her. We also see just how much Teri loves her daughter. She did a truly brave thing to save Kim and to be able to contact Jack. The scenes of Senator Palmer's troubles during the campaign are terrific as well. A terrific thrill ride from start to finish. That ride does not look like it is going to slow down anytime soon!moreless
  • Jack is in trouble.

    After the last episode Jack's search for his family hit a dead end and in this episode he is in custody of the Secret Service but not for long when he is left no choice but to escape The whole thing with Jack hiding out with a hostage wasn't going to work because she was always going to tell the Secret Service Despite Nina's best attempts to get information out of the mole it wasn't enough as she committed suicide so she never had to talk The Palmer storyline takes a new direction now that he thinks the government are secretly trying to kill him but we will soon see where that storyline goes.moreless
  • The usual Level!!!!!

    After the last intense episode, it was not possible do create another one. This episode show exactly that.

    Everyone gets their share on screen.

    First, Teri and Kim continue to be captive, however, this time, teri was raped, in order to save Kim and get a Phone.

    Jack situation is worse than ever. He also managed to escape, but he is human and he have to rest a little, good detail in that sense.

    Palmer Plot continue to be a little interesting, when sherry make her move, to save who?

    What happened with Jamey was unexpected, also this provided a good ending for the next episode.moreless
  • Sixty winks

    Since the Palmer assassination threat ended in the last episode, I guess people needed a break from the tension. This episode gives us just that; the characters take a few breathers as they get ready to tackle what's to come in the next few hours.

    Jack manages to escape his predicament and hide out with a hostage. His time spent with Lauren Proctor, slow though it may be, gives some nice insight into his character and lets us reflect on the happenings of the last eight episodes, while anticipating what's to come in the next fifteen. Then there's the little plot development where Teri is raped by one of her captors. Yeah, the bad taste in my mouth is probably deliberate, but this also confused me when Teri later found out she was preg…um, pregnable?

    Sherry manages to convince Maureen Kingsley to put the Gibson story on hold for the time being. Translation: she buys time for the writers to cram in another twist later on.

    What largely keeps this episode afloat is the action at CTU. There's some good drama with Nina, Tony, and Jamey, and the twist at the end (which I did see coming) is another in the line of major turning points that twist the plot around and keep the show cool.

    Hourly Highlight:

    Jack's escape from the power plant. Awesome music.moreless
  • After 8am...

    The really have the tempo on, full motion. This episode was somehow very intense.. so many things happening on the same time. first Bauer and his struggle with secret service and then running and that somehow quiet moment with that woman he kidnapped. It was somehow like reality check - Bauer is still human and he is also tired.. I think the best part of this episode for me was Nina and Tony in CTU trying to work things out with Jamey and she somehow, even if she betrayed them, is char I say I do like. The way she and Tony talked while Nina was out - very good dialog. And the end - the choice she made. And what kind of trouble now Nina and Tony will be.

    And of course some quite interesting turns in side of Bauer family and Teri/Kim side.. now they have a phone and I hope they will put it into good use.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Elisha Cuthbert couldn't run in the sandals so the costume department painted sneakers to match.

    • In the previous episode, Jack called Frank "Miller" to get clearance for the breakfast, but now his last name is "Simes".

    • Continuity Error: When Kim sits and waits while Teri is being raped, her shoes change from the ones she's been wearing the past 8 episodes. When Teri returns after the rape and commercial break, there's a clear shot showing that she's back in the sandals she's been wearing for the whole series up until now.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Jack: I used to be in the military. Used to do field work for the CIA. I've been to some horrible places; I've seen some pretty terrible things. I don't think I've ever been this scared in my whole life.

    • Novick: What are you doing?
      Palmer: I'm pouring myself a drink, Mike.
      Novick: It's not even nine in the morning.

    • Palmer: It's not clear what happened, and I'm afraid I'm intact and as grouchy as ever.

    • Nina: From this moment on, you are taking over all of Jamey's projects.
      Milo: Why?
      Nina: Doesn't matter, she's no longer on the team.
      Milo: Okay, fine, but if I am going to take over an entire department, I want a bump in pay.

    • Jack: I have killed two people since midnight. I haven't slept in over 24 hours. So maybe you should be a little more afraid of me than you are now.
