    This is more of a transitional episode where the main story is being built. Except for the torture episode of secretary's son, all the other scenes are good. One of Jack's twisted ways of holding the terrorist till he gets satellite view. New character walks into CTU - so another mole inside? Hope not. Seriously how many moles are there inside CTU?

    Jack Bauer is pursuing one of the terrorists, but it seems that this pursuit is not going to finish so early. It is a pity, since the episode would have potential for more. Jack shows a more human side when he saved chloe friend instead of going to pursue right away one the terrorists.



    We saw a more emocional chloe, and it seems she is the only one who meet jack in the past, because the writers wanted to create again - Jack Vs CTU. When this is over, will she remain in this season?



    Besides this, marianne, navi, heller and any other scenes only set up things for the next episodes.moreless

    Oh.. this one was much more excitement than last one as something is really going on - Jack is on his own on the pursuit and using Chloe as his hand to information and it will get her into trouble. CTU also has someone else to make trouble - Marianne. From the moment she walks in, it is just.. she starts to ask question, see things.. very weird but already the way she get there.. it gives us reason to doubt her.



    Behrooz and her mother.. maybe somehow the best part of this episode. The mother takes up the task his son does not do and calls for the girl and we can only imagine what comes next...moreless

    Things to report: Jack continues to tail Kalil, Richard Heller may or may not have crucial information about the threat, Curtis' b*tchy ex-girlfriend comes into CTU, and Navi wants Behrooz to kill Debbie. Heavy stuff.

    Driscoll cuts off contact, so Jack asks Chloe to go behind Driscoll's back and get him some satellite surveillance to help track Kalil. Unlike pretty much everything else on the show, this process will take a long time, and that's only to give Jack an excuse to do something completely, insanely ludicrous to keep Kalil in one place.

    Rather than go with the needle, Curtis decides to subject Richard to sensory disorientation, which warps one's mind and makes one sob like a little girl. Or maybe the latter just applies for Richard, the big crybaby.

    But how can we forget the Araz Family? Navi demands that Behrooz call Debbie over and take care of the situation (that's code for something). But just when Behrooz thinks he's in the clear, Dina's the one who invites her over. Nice one.

    The numerous plotlines remain stellar in this episode. The Araz subplot is my favorite of the bunch, though it doesn't get the "Hourly Highlight" honor.



    Hourly Highlight:

    When Jack Bauer puts on a ski mask, you know it can't be good.moreless

    I didnt like this episode in the grand scheme of things. Jack has been in transit now for over an hour, trying to locate where this man is. I find it really hard to believe that it takes the man that long to get to his destinations and that Jack can remain concealed during that entire time. Not only that - but Jack Bauer does his most memorable stuff when he is not in a car, going back and forth with Chloe looking for satelitte coverage. CTU drama was pretty boring in this episode as well - with Curtis getting no where with James Heller. I dont think the information that he is holding is going to be too critical, thought I suppose it could later on. The scenes with Heller and Curtis just arent very well done. The Araz family with Debbie is one of the most random storylines ever. I guess its a change that we get to learn a little bit about the terrorists, but Im just not feeling there storyline. Audrey and Jim Hellers scenes are also all the same - Him telling her that she will be all right. Seems a little too early in the season to have a filler episode, but that is what this was.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • During the "Previously" clip, Navi talks to Behrooz, stating that Omar saw him with Debbie outside the compound. But during the original episode, he stated that one of Omar's men saw him outside the compound with a girl, not Omar himself.

    • When Chloe walks into the toilet, you can clearly see that the time shown on her watch is around 08:45 while the time is 09:38.

    • Agent Richards (Butch Klein) is back to his job of inflicting pain, but his first name seems to have changed from Darren to Eric in the credits.

  • QUOTES (5)

  • NOTES (1)

    • Shohreh Aghdashloo stated in many interviews that she had previously refused to take on the role of a terrorist because it was too stereotypical. However, the producers wanted her for the part of Dina Araz so badly that they held several meetings with her and persuaded her to sign on as a cast member. Aghdashloo made an exception because she felt Dina was, "a woman with many faces." As the season unfolded, many fans happily agreed with her.
