  • 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
  • Pardon THIS!

    Something doesn't sit right with me regarding the return of Sherry Palmer. Her final conversation with her ex-husband in the S1 finale was so damn climactic. And it just feels wrong when she shows up at Palmer's retreat claiming to know about a conspiracy within the administration working against him. Right, Palmer shifts locations between his cabin retreat and the OC for a while here. It also takes ages for this Sherry thing to become interesting.

    The other major thing happening in this hour is Jack's interrogation of Nina. This actually is fun to watch. We get insight into Jack's interrogation strategies, questionable though they may be. After he goes all psychotic on her, she drops the smugness act and agrees to help CTU find the nuke out of pure fear. Plus, she's still got that shadow asylum coming her way.

    Besides that, the story over at the Warner house progresses a bit when Reza gives up Bob's name. Way to keep the mystery in play. No, really; is it Reza or is it Bob? The question will drive us crazy.

    "1pm - 2pm" develops the story pretty well, but for me, it only has a few things going for it. Don't be fooled by my words; those few things do make the episode worth watching.

    Hourly Highlight:

    Jack chokes the **** out of Nina.moreless

    him before he can squeeze the life from her. Jack tells Mason in private that he needs Nina to believe he has the power to do anything he wants to her

    and tells her they're leaving. Before they can go anywhere, Gary is called to the nurse's station to answer a phone call. Miguel is the person on the other

    end, pretending to be someone in accounting. He distracts Gary long enough to help Kimberly get into Megan's room. After giving his credit card information

    to Miguel, Gary hangs up and returns to Megan's room. However, he is too late, as Kimberly and Megan are already gone.

    1:32 P.M.-1:34 P.M.: Megan begins to panic, because she doesn't want to leave. Kimberly tries desperately to calm her down and convince her that she needs

    other, while rubbing it in to Jack that Kimberly's already lost one parent and will lose both if he decides to avenge Teri's death.

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.
