    Did not expect that Erin would support jack setting her ego aside. It is sad though to see Chloe leaving. My favorite scene is when the police finds the terrorist's stolen vehicle and backing off - and the terrorist observing this and blowing himself. We get to know that there is an American assisting this whole thing. The time is getting nearer and Jack has no idea as to where Heller and his daughter are there.moreless
  • Death in the fast lane

    7.0
    The whole hour is preparation for Jack's arrival at the terrorist compound and subsequent rescue of Heller and Audrey. But that doesn't mean it doesn't have its moments.The Heller subplot itself is somewhat juiced up. Not by the gassing-self-to-death thing; I wasn't impressed by that, since it was predictable that they would survive. But Audrey recognizing the white guy with the terrorists—that's what makes things a little more interesting. As does the arrival of Heller's execution time and the beginning of the Internet broadcast. CTU finds the location of Omar's compound, but further raising the stakes are Keeler's order for a preliminary attack to kill Heller.The other two big storylines are: Jack following Kalil to Heller, and Debbie's mother Karen looking for her at the Araz house. The latter is, as you might expect, funny as hell.The boring stuff: Driscoll decides to fire Chloe instead of sending her to prison, and Marianne continues to bug Edgar.I found it rather cheap that Kalil goes through the trouble of killing himself, yet Jack is able to find the compound rather easily. Oh well, who am I to gripe? If it leads to an awesome rescue sequence in the next episode, then lay it on me!Hourly Highlight:Kalil's suicide. Though I'm kinda disappointed with the absence of a big explos—Yay!moreless
  • Another Setup

    7.0
    Chloe was dismissed and now she is out of this season for the time being. It is a pity, since she is the only character who brings some emotion, and she was funny.



    Finally, the pursuit finished in this episode, it is difficult to believe that this all pursuit was almost in vain, in fact, the writers managed to gain a lot time with this. Now that Jack is free, its time to save Audrey and Heller.



    Marianne, Driscoll and Navi scenes are there just to buy some time the writers needed, to finish the episode, when Jack is about to save is love.moreless
  • The execution draws closer

    9.0
    So.. it is only hour from time when terrorist start with their "justice" and Jack is following the suspect who gets into trouble and then they get into trouble as the police gets involved and it all gets solved in very noticeable way. And the bad guy was not a fool and he did what he thought was right - very epic music and those frames.. very powerful.



    So, CTU is left without nothing until they figure it out other way but Jack does not like what is going on as president orders missile attack.. But did you forgot, Audrey is still there and Jack is not giving up his new life.



    Anyway.. it ends in really promising moment.moreless

    The third episode in a row that I consider to be filler by the writers of 24. Once again another hour was wasted with jack in transit, trying to follow the man before he gets to his destination. Theres no way this guy was this far out of the launch site on the day that all of this plans to go down. The writers try and keep to the timeline as best as possible, but having the guy try to get from point A to point B and having it take over three and a half hours is pushing the limits, even with the hold up at the store. CTU drama didnt amount to much in this episode - with Driscoll having a scene with her daughter and Chloe being let go from CTU. I actually really liked Chloe on the show and it was a same to se her go. She gave a very serious show a little bit of comedy and I think it was a mistake to write her off in the way that they did. The Araz family storyline was also weak, with Behrooz continually showing pain for Debbies death. The scene with Debbies mother was actually really well done, but other then that nothing but a filler. With Jack ready to go in and save Heller and Audrey, things might finnaly pick up with the next episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Although Dina shot Debbie's corpse low in the stomach (near the navel), when Navi examines the body the wound is now up further, near Debbie's sternum.

    • When Audrey is kicking the gas pipe from the wall, she suddenly has 2 shoes again. When she and her dad were kidnapped a couple of hours earlier, she lost a shoe at her brother's house- and was seen limping into the terrorist hideout/warehouse due to having only 1 shoe.

    • Jack asks for the local cops to get his vehicle, which he left at the petrol station. It then takes them only a few moments to drive it the distance from the gas station to the location where they picked him up, even though he
      had spent twenty minutes driving the same stretch of highway at the end of the last episode.

    • When Jack calls to move in on the subject at approx. 11:32, there's a car parking on the right side of the road. When the camera changes back to overview, the car is gone.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Chloe: I'm more insulted that you thought I wouldn't notice than by the fact that you were spying on me.
      Sarah: Driscoll ordered me to do it.
      Chloe: Next time, do it right. Use a Newman filter so the subject doesn't see red lights flashing everywhere. Amateur.

    • Driscoll: It took a lot of guts for you to do what you did.
      Chloe: I trusted Jack.
      Driscoll: A lot of people around here trust Jack. It doesn't mean they're gonna risk their careers for him.

    • Chloe: (to Edgar after being let go) Good luck today, you're going to need it.

    • Chloe: You're a geek, Edgar, but you are a good guy.

    • Driscoll: We have a situation here.
      Chloe: I realize that. I can do the math as well as anyone.

    • (Talking about a Level 3 Channel Clearance)
      Marianne: I don't care who authorizes it, I want it.
      Edgar: Look, just because you overheard that conversation between Chloe and me, doesn't mean I'm your bitch.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The first episode to air in its new, normal time slot on Monday evenings at 9:00 PM ET.

    • Fan phone alert: A valid California phone number can clearly be seen on Debbie's cell phone caller ID (310-597-3781.) Many fans called this number, which turned out to be a live line to a prop phone on the set of the show. Some fans got a voice mail message telling them that they called the 24 prop phone and to leave a message. Others talked to live people, including Production Designer Joseph Hodges. Still others claimed that they spoke to stars Kim Raver and Carlos Bernard. Hodges later admitted in an interview that Director Jon Cassar came up with the idea for the "fan phone" because the two of them often got bored scouting new shooting locations and wanted a chance to interact with the audience. Hodges further stated that they received around 80,000 calls on the line during the first week alone.
