Great Way the writers managed this mandy mini plot.
Lets talk about the weak point of this episode, of course, the Chinese plot. Until now i didn´t undestand this plot place, but now is clear, is to put jack away or prisioner, until season 5 arrives. So this guy that tell the truth, was nothing that you cannot antecipated, and of course, this was just the details.
What is great in this episode is of course mandy mini plot. The writers filled the entire episode with this, but since mandy was not explored enough in the past, this is understandble.
She is very intelligent and I am glad that the writers managed to show us this. If was not Jack guilt and expertise, Mandy could be able to escape.
However, this Mandy plot is not enough to give this episode a 9, since a 9 episode, is that type of episode where something very important happen with our favorites character and Jack Bauer, twist, suspense, and of course, a ending that will be remenbered forever. Not in this case, this is why the i gave 8.
