  • Great episode

    9.0
    Here we get lots of action, Jack finally catches up with Dina, and we get to see Tony lots too. We got a heartbreaking ascene with one of CTU's people, had me cry watching it. It was so well played. Still keep missing Chloe, but she would be back later that season. (Third time i watch the series)

    Nothing much happens here which really connects to the main plot. Edgar part was moving. His acting was perfect. He really seemed lovable person. And I am getting real tired of these pardons. It gives an impression whether true or not that US can pardon criminal of any kind if he or she can help them? Come on, you agreed to pardon a person who literally tried to blow up US. I understand there can be no other way around. But pardoning hard core criminals to get information out of them might not be fair for those who suffered because of themmoreless
  • Some insight on Edgar that moved me, and a wonderful painted-into-a-corner scenario which 24 does so well.

    6.5
    This episode was interesting to me. The characters from two of the major storylines met and locked. 24 is at its best when it's painted itself into a corner, and it seems like that's where they are now with the Araz situation.

    We got to learn more about Edgar in this episode. I really like Edgar; he's a really good guy and very loveable. I had tears in my eyes when he spoke with his mother on the phone. I hope Audrey can come through for him. I liked that he gave her a little something to think about when he said that if his mother had been rich or a politician they would have found a way to save her. Some people's lives are worth more than others apparently; Edgar is spot on with this and it seems that the thought has never occurred to Audrey before.

    I was shocked to see that one of the reactors had a melt down. Usually in 24 they come very close to disaster but it's averted at the last minute. Like when the bomb in season 2 went off in the desert, and the virus in season 3 was only unleashed in one location. But this time around they actually had a disaster, one that will affect people's lives for generations to come, that was a bold move.

    What I'm mainly wondering is what more the terrorists have up their sleeve. If the reactor threat is over and done with in another two hours then they must have something else to cover the rest of the day. I'd hate to think what that could be that tops a nuclear melt down.

    I'm still wondering what happened to Driscoll's daughter by the way.moreless
  • The Meeting!!!!

    7.0
    This episode is more about details then anything else.



    When a treat like this one happens, there are some details you can add to make the treat more real. As usual, they buy some time with Behrooz (not Navi that I was talking in the past reviews), its necessary that he turns to his uncle, to allow navi to caught his son alive e to make one more problem for jack.



    Edgar drama is sad and was the only scene that make you feel how bad is this threat.



    Jack interrogations are repetitived but necessary because os the details, however, with dina, it ends in a different way.moreless
  • Hey, look, plot convergence

    8.0
    Jack finally meets the Araz Family in this superior episode. The collision of these two plotlines brings CTU in as well. And one of the nuclear reactors melts down. This is not an hour to be taken lightly.

    There is some filler when Edgar's mother, who lives close to the reactor, decides to commit suicide. But it's not that cringe-inducing; I was almost kinda moved slightly.

    Navi has an amusing little scene as he continues the search for Dina and Behrooz. Yes, infidelity is abominable, but filicide, uxoricide, political homicide, nuclear genocide, and Latinos portraying Middle Easterners are a-okay. Hotcha.

    The episode provides great insight into the characters of Jack and Dina as they sit down for some uneasy conversation and negotiate a deal to stop the meltdowns. The deal involves an immunity grant for Behrooz, which Keeler reluctantly hands over. There's something about a non-binding detail for that grant, but it's never brought up again, so let's forget it. Likewise, Behrooz is developed more when he works up the balls to tell Navi what a loathsome sack of garbage he is. A good episode that advances both the characters and the Override arc very well, and sets up key plot elements for the next couple of hours.



    Hourly Highlight:

    Navi crashing into Jack, which to Jack is apparently no worse than a frisbee to the head.moreless
