  • awsome episode

    This is so good i have no words, you dont see anything before it happens. The twists and shocks just keep coming and are so great. Best show ever.
  • 'Silenced' guns ARE NOT ACTUALLY SILENT.

    also I liked Richards.
  • Obvious To Me

    First let me say that i love 24. I believe that season 2 is even better than season 1. Now on to this episode. The best parts of this episode was Jack's hunt for Salid Ali, and the Kate Warner storyline.

    It turns out that there are two moles. Sherry being one of them. This came as no surprise to me. I suspected her from the moment she showed up. The fact that she had the NSA director in her pocket, was a surprise. The other mole was Marie Warner. If you had told me that two episodes ago, i would have been very surprised. But it became obvious to me last episode. Kim's fugitive storyline is starting to get interesting. But how we got there, is a little unrealistic. The police would have taken everything from there pockets. There would have been no lighter, no bandana. Also, handcuffs used by the police, have a three link chain. The ones Kim was were eight to ten inches long. Those kind of restraints are used to chain prisoners to a bench, not used when transporting someone under arrest. I've seen many shows make this error, so it is forgivable here.moreless
  • Trust no one.

    This was probably the best episode of season 2 up to this point as it reveals two moles and both of them are the two people you would least expect I couldn't believe that Sherry is working against Palmer after she seemed to be a great help The other person was even more unexpected when it turns out Marie was the one working with Syed Ali while CTU were to busy trying to fins out whether it was Bob or Reza With Jack getting out of the tricky situation with Nina he was able to save Kate and hopefully he will be able to stop all these traitors that are being revealed that are planning an attack on America.moreless
  • Two moles are revealed. A double whammy!!

    This episode steps up a couple of notches and the plot finally begins to advance when two traitors are revealed at the end of the episode.

    Ok, the first mole, it was about time this was revealed considering the plot was beginning to get old with the constant interrogations of Bob and Reza. But no one ever expected it to be Marie! I thought of her as the innocent party in this, I mean it was her wedding day so she was the least likely person to be involved. I actually thought ther'd be more chance of it being Kate lol. And as for the second mole, its wasn't a shock that Stanton was involved as much as the person whos working with him. Sherry!! Just as David was starting to appreciate her more as well, I hope he doesn't end up being fooled.

    Also, Jack manages to escape from Nina. Its such a mystery trying to figure out what Jack whispered in Nina's ear, I guess its leaving it up to our imaginations. But whatever it was, she was obviously completely taken back by what he said. Jack then goes to Syed Ali's house and ends up rescuing Kate. It was a very clever way of them becoming acquainted with each other. Their relationship really grows throughout this season, you can tell they're fond of each other from this episode, and even more so in the next episode.

    And whattttt was Kim and Miguel doing? Tut tut. They both get the award for dunces of the episode.

    And I know its probably an unlikely choice considering how many twists are in this episode, but the highlight of the episode for me is the scene between George and Michelle. Its my favourite everyday banter conversation of the whole series so far. I mean, it was just so simple; how he was going on about wanting to become a teacher and that. But it was so moving at the same time. His acting was so good in that conversation, the shining moments he is having this season just aren't going to stop are they? Also, I absolutely loved how Michelle took his perfect advice later on with Tony.

    Quote of the hour! George Mason: "You know, Michelle, I'm not a big advice giver, but under the circumstances, don't wait for your life to happen to you. Find something that makes you happy -- do it. Because everything else is just background noise."moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • When the police car bringing Kim and her friend to L.A. had an accident, Kim called the cops and an ambulance. When the cops arriver, you can clearly hear on the radio, "Dispatch, it's 143." However, the number on the car is 134.

    • Kate Warner holds a bloody towel to her wounded earlobe. She puts it away and you can see a very clean band aid around the lobe.

    • At 5.03pm, we see Nina pushed to the ground and that she has her hands handcuffed behind her after her failed attempt to shoot Jack. As the CTU officers pull her up on her feet, it is clearly seen that her hands were free and not cuffed.

    • After Kate Warner is saved, Jack Bauer is talking to her outside but her hair keeps changing. It goes from one ear sticking out, to covering up the ear, to the hair being behind the ear, back to one ear sticking out.

    • Jack was limping in the previous hour after pulling a piece of wood from his leg. His limp has since vanished.

    • During the final commercial break of the original FOX airing of the episode, a promo appeared saying that "every second counts" and that 24 will be right back. The clock incorrectly read 5:23.

    • At about 5:30pm, when Marie Warner enters her father's office to talk to Reza, she runs into the office and throws her handbag on the desk. At 5:31pm, when she gets up to leave, she grabs the handbag from the floor behind the chair that Reza is sitting in.

    • Reza is handcuffed to the chair by Richards and this is commented on (Reza: I can't work like this!). However, Reza is not handcuffed later and is able to stand up for Marie to shoot him.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Palmer: That wasn't the Gettysburg Address, but it should buy us some more time.

    • Tony: (to Michelle) So what are you saying, that if we save L.A. from a nuclear bomb, you and I can go out for dinner and a movie?

    • Jack: You shoot me before they find Ali, it'll be a violation of your agreement. They'll just slap you back in prison.
      Nina: And you'll be dead!
      Jack: I'm already dead!

    • Jack: You know what, you're right. I don't feel like waiting to die.

    • Nina: I never meant it to be personal.
      Jack: It felt pretty personal when you killed my wife.

    • Agent Richards: There is a nuclear bomb somewhere in this city, and if you don't give me something useful in the next half hour, I am going to take you back to CTU and chain you to the roof so you have a front row seat when the damn thing goes off.

    • Mason: So what are you going to do tomorrow? If the bomb doesn't go off? Have you thought about it?
      Michelle: No.
      Mason: Probably come back to work here?
      Michelle: Of course. Why wouldn't I?
      Mason: I don't know. Are you happy on this job? Believe it or not, I used to want to be a teacher. Long time ago. Know why I didn't? DOD offered me more money. That's how I made my decision. So I made myself miserable and made everyone around me miserable for five thousand more dollars. That was my price.
      Michelle: Sorry
      Mason: You know, Michelle, I'm not a big advice giver, but under the circumstances, don't wait for your life to happen to you. Find something that makes you happy -- do it. Because everything else is just background noise.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Originally the writers planned to have Bob Warner be the dirty member of the Warner family. They were inspired to make it Marie after the story of "American Taliban" member John Walker Lindh.
