  • Mason returns to CTU and takes command. There he risks Paula's life to acquire vital information.

    As is the case withe the previous three episodes, there is a lot to like about this episode. The best thing is seeing Jack in the aftermath of the bombing. My favorite scene was when he chewed out President Palmer's aide Lynne Kresge over the phone for not giving CTU enough advance notice of the attack. It had sharply written dialogue. I also liked how Jack stood up to Kresge when she tried talk down to him. As usual President Palmer proves to be just as much of a force to be reckoned with as Jack. Seeing Palmer call out and eventually fire Eric for pushing his own agenda rather than save CTU was fantastic. If only real politicians put the interests of the people ahead of their own agendas or ambitions. If only. My one problem with this episode is the story line concerning Kim's situation. It seems to be getting a bit formulaic. The best example is the doctor who falsely accuses Kim of causing all of Megan's injuries. Please. That aside I think this episode worked quite well.moreless
  • Just incredible

    The aftermath of the bombseverything is so well done i miss this show greatkly, now adays they keep crappy shows like the Walk.. i mean the crawling dead on the air.
  • Jack deals with the terrorists from the CTU bombing.

    This was another good early episode in season 2 with Jack getting revenge on the terrorists behind the CTU bombing Jack spends most of the episode trying to get information from the leader of the group about who ordered the hit on CTU I was glad that Palmer realised that Jack made the call in enough time to save the lives of people at CTU and he did his best to try and save them In the end Jack's attempts to get Joe to give him information paid off when he tells Jack that Nina was involved.moreless
  • Jack still a Badass!!!!!

    After the Last Intense episode, it is normal that the level of intensity is lower.

    Now Jack knows the leader Location, kill eddie and his gang and then go after Joe. In the Beginning the scenes were good between them, but later, the writers buy some time until the end of the episode to bring a good cliffhanger.

    Even with is death sentence, mason is back to CTU to lead this crisis.

    In this episode we discovered who is alive.

    Palmer situation in his administration come to a brief resolution about Rayburn plot.

    Kim situation gets worse wbut nothing beyond the usual.

  • Getting closer...

    CTU is bombed.. oh.. Tony is all right, thanks good but that cannot be said about Paula and she is the only one who can retrieve the data they have on bombs. And George comes back after yelling on Tony and makes a decision he could not make - they won't let Paula to be taken to hospital. She will try to give their the encryption key and then die. And the talk Tony had with the other agent about Paula.. it was sweet.. and shows there is a big different between George and Tony in charge. Jack does little shooting.. little more shooting and what he finds in the end.. wow.. Can we have Nina back? :D As I did like her char even thought what she did was cruel.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • After Jack was going after Wald from being attacked by his dog, the arms of his jacket were intact.

    • A bomb exploded inside CTU destroying pretty much everything, yet the "systems" including the phone lines are somehow still working.

    • In episode 2, Mason is seen typing in his password, which is 11 characters long. Yet in this episode when he's asked by Tony, he gives his password as Hendrix (most likely spelt like rock legend Jimi Hendrix), 7 characters long.

      In the other hand, the password may have been "jimihendrix" and Mason just said "hendrix" over the phone for security, hoping that Tony would understand...that's why Tony asked for the "x".

    • There is no way that Jack could have driven from West L.A. to the middle of Simi Valley in 20 minutes at that time of day.

    • After the shootout with Eddie and Chris, the car Eddie is driving has all the windows shot out and is filthy. After Jack commandeers the car, he's seen driving it to Wald's, and all the windows are intact, rolled up, and the car is clean.
