  • Jack's attempts to warn the President of the eminent attack on CTU are met with obstacles. Elsewhere Kim struggles to protect Megan.

    8.0
    Once again Kiefer Sutherland and Dennis Haysbert are phenomenal. However that does not mean the other cast members standout in their roles. Carlos Bernard is (as usual) terrific. Though they were ultimately unsuccessful in preventing the bomb attack, I did enjoy seeing Jack's attempts to do so. It was a little unsettling seeing Jack slash the back of his head, but that in an of itself is not a bad thing. It was necessary to substantiate his story as to why the phone company employee "escaped" and it shows Jack's dedication. Still it's a little tough to watch none the less. The sequence of the actual bombing of CTU was very well staged. As far as the storyline concerning Kim is concerned, it seems to be getting a bit formulaic. The whole thing with Megan refusing to go with Kim when she made the call was a bit foolish to begin with. It was pretty much a foregone conclusion that Megan would wonder off. It was also easy to see that Kim would arrive just in the nick of time to prevent Megan from being harmed in some way. In this case the was seemed very creepy! Still, despite the aforementioned flaws I think this episode worked well.moreless

  • CTU gets hit.

    9.0
    The last episode left me looking forward to this episode and it didn't disappoint Jack finds himself in a tricky situation undercover with a group that is targeting CTU Although Jack did his best to try and prevent the bomb going off it just wasn't enough and it seems that everywhere Kim goes she gets herself in trouble as she managed to get stuck in the middle of the explosion This was a very good early episode into what will be another long day.moreless
  • WoW is the Right Word!!!!

    9.5
    You know what this episode is about, Bomb up CTU and of course, the usual prediction is to doubt that this will eventually happen, however this was not the Case.



    All the attention is centered in this, even Kim is tied to CTU event, since she is looking for protection. Jack did is work trying a phone call to the president to prevent this, however lynne thought that would blow Jack cover, and he decided without Palmer orders to sacrifice CTU, in order to find the Bomb.



    Mason escape plot didn´t end well for him, since we learn that he will.....



    KAte Family plot continues to be boring.



    Overral a very tense episode, well tied and with a great Finale.moreless
  • Wow episode

    9.5
    Oh.. This episode really nailed it all. First the bomb threat what becomes more and more serious with every minute and second. The way Jack just has to look how noone does nothing as Palmer's administration is plotting on their own and when he learns, it is already too late. That telephone guy and he attacking Jack, it was also great, showing that it is just not "do as Jack says". And the minutes before explosion in CTU...Paula in the last minutes getting the encryption trough and Tony up there.. hoping best for him..



    And ofcourse George.. he was not a char I liked first season but the way he has been acting now.. I think he really redempts himself. And Kim and Megan.. oh...moreless
