  • Kim and Miguel are falsley charged with murder. Nina makes a desparate move to improve her standing with Jack and CTU.

    The highlight of this episode for me is the story line concerning President Palmer's suspicion of a traitor among the ranks of his cabinet. Dennis Haysbert is as usual in top form here. You almost forget you are watching an episode of a television show during the scenes for that particular story. I also like the twists and turns that happen during Tony's investigation of Kate's family. They are well written and plausible. The scene of Kate's kidnapping adds the right amount of suspense to that story. As far as Nina's time in this episode, I found it a little hard to believe that she knew she would need the gift card at sometime to use as a weapon. Still it made for a well stages action scene that adds to the entertainment value of the episode. This particular episode is one of the better of the season and makes me all the more anxious for the next chapter in this thrilling season.moreless
  • once again

    Kim is in trouble.... again. And the story gets better and better.
  • The season is picking up.

    This episode shows how dangerous the threat really is with Kate getting close to the truth but ends up getting kidnapped and then Jack's plane getting hit However Jack might have just go somewhere with the location of the bomb when Nina claims she knows where it will go off Kim continues to get in trouble with the police even though she hasn't really done anything wrong It will also be interesting to see the effects of the truth about the bomb slowly coming out.moreless
  • Ashes, ashes…

    S2 antes it up a little, starting with the Warners of all people. One big discovery this hour is that Bob Warner is a consultant for the CIA, exposition courtesy of both the CTU storyline and the Kate Warner storyline. A little contrived? Sure. But for a few hours, it'll serve to create further confusion on who exactly is working with Syed Ali: Bob or Reza?So Nina manages to get Faheen to reveal the location of "the bomb," which we'll later see is just the location of Syed Ali. Way to lie, Nina/writers. Anyway, she kills Faheen afterwards, and blood is always welcome on this show (though Jack seems kinda pissed about it).And at the OC, the situation with Ron Wieland comes back to bite Palmer in the ass. That's correct: the guy somehow escapes from his cell and babbles everything he can to the press. Hey, at least the writers didn't forget about him.It's all well and good, but one ridiculous aspect of this episode is the misadventures of Omar, Basheer, and Marko, the three terrorists transporting the nuke to wherever. After alleged months of planning, Marko has a sudden change of heart about the American people, yada yada yada, Omar's the only survivor.Totally detracting to the story, but in spite of that, this is a decent episode, and it only gets more exciting from here.Hourly Highlight:"That was Teri. My wife. That's what you took from this world, Nina. That's what you took from me and my daughter. I just wanted you to know that." ……………BOOM!!!moreless
  • How to buy more time!!!!

    This episode mark the end of the first Phase of this Season 2.

    This of course, make the final scenes in this episode more interesting. Palmer Administration continue where he stopped, with sherry continuous work to supposedly help Palmer. But this time, was only about details.

    Tony's interrogation doesn't make any advance. However kate made some, and this explain her final scene in this spisode.

    Kim continues to be annoying, with her scenes leading nowhere.

    The cliffhanger at the end was not bad.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Jack enters the door of the Faheen store, you can briefly see the shadow of a boom mic in his shoulders.
      It isn't the shadow of a light pole from the road because it is not there when the soldiers break the door apart.

    • The previous episode ended with the cop calling for back-up. At the start of this episode, there's suddenly 4-5 extra cars there.

    • When Paul Koplin inserts the memory stick to the computer, it can be seen that it is a Creative Nomad MuVo mp3 player.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Wieland: Sherry Palmer.
      Sherry: Hello, Ron.
      Wieland: Just when I thought this day couldn't get any stranger.

    • Jack: The Sunday before you killed my wife, Teri and I went down to the boardwalk in Venice. Just watching all the rollerbladers and musicians, laughing at the crazy people...and spending time together. And Teri sees this snow cone stand, she giggles like a kid; she takes off running. She wants to get in line. She wants one. I remember I was watching her, I just...I couldn't help myself. And when I looked up at her, she was talking with this old lady in line behind her and the two of them were laughing. And I remember thinking to myself, how the hell does she do that? How does she strike up a conversation with an absolute stranger and they just start laughing...like they've been friends forever? That's a gift. I remember thinking, God, I wish I could do that, but I can't. That was Teri...my wife. That's what you took from this world, Nina. That's what you took from me and my daughter. I just wanted you to know that.

    • Jack: What did he tell you?
      Nina: Everything! (kills Faheen)

    • Lynne: (referring to Sherry) If I feel it's a problem, I'll talk to the President.
      Stanton: She's his ex-wife. That's a problem by itself.
