  • As Jack tries to get information about the nuclear device from Nina, President Palmer has a surpsise visit from the most unklikely of people.

    As I previously mentioned Nina was a good adversary for Jack in the sense that she knew him better than anybody else. The same could be said for the former Mrs. Palmer and the President. She too can easily match wits with the president for obvious reasons. The scenes of the the president and his ex-wife dealing with one another are very well written. It's painfully obvious from the beginning that Sherry Palmer has her own agenda, but what keeps the viewer interested is the desire to find out exactly what the agenda is. Sarah Wynter starts to come into her own here in this episode. She takes initiative here when she tells her sister the wedding may have to be cancelled. I just have a small criticism with the interrogation of Reza. The whole thing of Reza offering up a vital piece of info at the last second was a bit too formulaic for me. I did not care much for that. Still I liked this episode quite a bit. Season two has proven to be a very strong season at this early stage.moreless
  • The return

    Nina interrogation and the return of Sherry Palmer. Two bad"guys" we love to hate. What a well written character Sherry is. Awsome episode.
  • Some Good Some Bad

    The Jack and Nina plot, progressed well this episode. The Palmer plot added more layers, and is starting to get good. The Kim plot has been unbelievable, almost from the start. If she had just gone to the police in the beginning, the child's father would be in jail right now. They would of questioned the little girl alone, and she would of said she couldn't say, because her father would get mad. That would did it right there.

    The only other issue i have, is of course the "evil white guy terrorist", and the unfairly persecuted middle eastern "good guy". Evil comes in all shapes, sizes, and in any ethnicity. But the only evil people allowed on tv are white Americans. This season broadcasted, a little over a year after 9/11. It doesn't stretch the imagination, to believe other radical islamic terrorists, may want to attack America.moreless
  • Guess Who is Back???

    This is the first time that Kate family plot managed to be better, because not only the interrogation take place, a turning point begins too.

    A old Character is back and it is tied to the conspiration or at least knows to much. Palmer administration plot is becoming more interesting and complex.

    This time with help, Kim escape from trouble, for now.

    The Higher point in this episode his of course Jack and Nina Scenes. Will Jack put his vengeance above the national security?

  • Dangerous games..

    Mm.. This episode.. it was better than last but still slow, I think. The best turn was in Kate storyline as her sister's future husband said that Kate's father has something to do with this all. That makes sense as if he did background check, he should have found the same thing. And I most say it was the first episode where Kate's storyline had something exciting and worth watching. So good..

    Jack and Nina together.. the interrogation over Nina and the way everyone think he wants to kill her in the end and the way Jack behaves. When I did not understand it in last episode, then now it all makes much sense. And Palmer's storyline and Sherry back.. intriguing.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Palmer: (to Sherry) This had better not be one of your manipulations, the stakes are too high.

    • Reza: (to Tony) I grew up in London; I'm marrying an American girl--a Protestant...so if you're going to racially profile me, you should at least get it right.
      Tony: Have you ever heard of the Finsbury Park Mosque? It's considered to be one of the main recruitment centers for Islamic terrorists in the West. Their main targets are European Muslims, with Western educations and passports, and the potential to blend into Western society. And do you know where that mosque is located? Your hometown, London! So tell me, Reza, how's my racial profiling going now?

    • Nina: I'll only get the pardon if I stop the bomb. Why wouldn't I do everything I can?
      Jack: Because you're worse than a traitor, Nina. You don't even have a cause. You don't believe in anything. You would sell anyone and everything out to the highest bidder.

    • Mason: (referring to Jack) What can I say? The guy's a little crazy...that's why I didn't want him here in the first place. But he gets results and we need some pretty big results here.

    • Nina: So Ed, how are ya?
      Agent Ed Miller: Don't talk to me, Nina. I'm here because I have to be, not because I'm your friend.
      Nina: Well, you're here because they think after I help stop the bomb, Jack will try to kill me. Which, of course, he will. What if you can't stop him? I mean, no offense, but Ed, let's face it: you're no match for Jack. You're just not that ruthless. So he manages to get around you and pull the trigger. What happens then? Because of the pardon, he knows if he kills me, he'll spend the rest of his life in jail.
      Agent Ed Miller: Jack, if you know of another way to shut her up that I'm not thinking of...
      Nina: Of course, Jack's mind is thinking, "That's not such a bad deal." Small price to pay to avenge his wife's death. But what about his daughter? Is he thinking about her? She's already lost one parent. If he kills me, she'll have no one. Jack knows I'm right. He should just use me to stop the bomb, and then go home to Kim. She needs you, Jack.

    • Nina: He is going to put a bullet in my head before I can say hello and then he's going to turn the gun on himself.
      Jack: We'll make sure he doesn't turn the gun on himself.

    • Jack: You should go be with your family, George.
      Mason: You should go get on the plane.
