Wow... That was my initial reaction. This episode really blew me away (and the car as well!)
Michelle and Tony have their tables turned. I was worried the storyline would be repetitive but it worked out nicely. I was really glad to see Michelle make the choice she made, because no matter how much I love the character of Tony Michelle knows it's his life or a million others and the only right thing to do is to sacrifice him. I LOVED Michelle in this episode alltogether, an outstanding performance by Aylesworth, especially when Tony is "killed". This was the second time during the entire show's history that I had tears in my eyes.
Logan is a jerk.
Nice ploy Mandy pulled. Being stranded in Sweden I don't get the spoilers, promos and rumors that the US audience does so I never know anything when sitting down to watch an episode, yet I didn't doubt that Tony and Mandy was alive. When the woman shut the car door it should have been audible through Mandy's end of the phone but it wasn't. I figured that would tip off Jack too, but instead it was the rain. Go figure. Nice touch to have it rain btw, I can't remember it ever raining on 24 before!
Logan is an ass.
Bad-ass Tony is back in business. Mandy can't be that much of an assassin if Tony can nearly kick her ass with his hands cuffed behind his back. Great watch though.
Logan is a turd.
I loved seeing the relationship between Jack and Tony in this episode. They really are great friends, even though neither seem too happy to admit it. They worked wonderfully as a team in this episode and honestly I half expected a hug between them. No hug, but still, great stuff.
Logan is a wimp.
Bern gave up the act... I can't really blame him to be honest, considering what he was facing. Though in my perfect world I would have wanted him to claim he wasn't told who was in charge. Yeah, they wouldn't have bought it, but in my perfect world they might have...
On to the finally we go...
