Mm.. so year has passed from the events that ended tragically and Bauer looks like.. mm.. first sight he reminds me Formula 1 driver Nick Heidfeld but he just looks so much as not him.. and he acts out of char too but that is all excusable as they really show his fall after he had worked so hard that all of them could be together. And that failed. Teri is gone and Kim does not want to talk with him. So, quite desperate situation but no troubles. I really like the emotional level they have build for Bauer.. and for Kim and Tony also (so great to see him as main cast)
The crises itself.. Maybe it is just going on but mainly for me this episode was about showing what had happened with Bauer and less about what is going to happen on that day.
