  • fantastic epissode

    We get lots of action, interrogation, main character Death. Something we couldnt dream of in shows like the crawling dead etc. One of the best tv epsiodes ever, regardless to series.
  • Edger...

    It's a great episode! Yet so so so sad. Edger's look on his face when he died was so upsetting and it got me so emotional afterwards. It must be one of the most heartbroken scenes in this entire episode. The acting, in general, of this TV show is awesome. The only thing I didn't like was Edger's death. He has been such a loyal friend and his chubby face has been such a delight thing to see inside super intense CTU. Grief for Edger.moreless
  • Why they have to do it again?

    first of all rating the episode as 10 is, I think, underrating it. It just is awesome. First of all reunion of Kim and Jack was done very well. I would not have liked it as much if it had been a tearful hug scene. Kim's reaction is good - confused - angry - yet glad. Henderson still did not break and kept in the same room as Tony is. Now, we understood what terrorists are up to by taking the key card and entering CTU. my worst guess came true - but it was until last moment I was thinking that the disaster would be averted somehow.

    Climax scene is really heart breaking. He and Chloe get along together so well - scenes between them were never boring. I cursed them for ending the character this way - I wish it had been different. We still are not clear what these guys think they are doing under pretext of protecting the country.moreless
  • Forget what I said near the beginning of my review for the pilot…

    "ARGUABLY one of the greatest television shows of all time"? **** that!Let's start with Logan, who's being pressured by Vice President Hal Gardner to declare martial law in Los Angeles. Why, judging from his mannerisms, it's almost as if Gardner is corrupt…yes, he must be. I'm convinced now!But CTU is where it's at. Not only do Jack and Henderson arrive at CTU, where Chloe, Audrey, Edgar, and Buchanan already are, but Kim finally returns and has a quiet reunion with her presumed-dead father. Whoa, so many important characters in the same place at the same time, one of them Kim freakin' Bauer. It's like a sign that something very bad is about to go down at CTU.Lo and behold, one of Bierko's henchmen struts into the place with a Sentox canister and tries to release it into the ventilation system. So we've got even more inner-CTU suspense, which later veers into inner-CTU action! How often do you get to say that? And of course, the canister ends up opening and releasing the gas, because let's face it—the bad guys gotta have their minor victories every season. If they didn't, would this show be as good as it is?The twists, the turns, the drama, the intrigue, and a tragic ending make this another worthy contribution to S5's peachy track record. And there's still half a season left. "w00t" is the only way I can put it.Hourly Highlight:Edgar.moreless

    Season 5 of 24 hasn´t fall from the 10 mark under my opinion so far. This season is really brilliant. Now I understand why almost everyone of the fans ranked this fifht day as the best. And, one more time for me since the season two, i have to review another episode far from the season finale. The reason is that episode surpasses the impressive first one of this present season and it´s the best episode of the season yet... and maybe the second best episode in my personal list (the number one stills being 1x24). I also understand why this episode is so higly ranked in top episodes!.

    So shocking... So surprising... So tearful... So sad...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Roger Cross (Curtis) does not appear in this episode, however you can hear his voice for a second while talking to Chloe on the phone, which is why he is credited at the beginning of the episode.

    • Goof: Kim is wearing lipstick. It disappears in another scene.

    • When the terrorist enters CTU, the security guard doesn't check his briefcase. The whole attack could have been prevented!

    • The Hendersons told Jack that they were there for Kim when no one else was after his "death," however, when Kim faces her father, she states that Barry was there for her when no one else was. Who was there for Kim then?

    • When Barry, Kim and Audrey attempt to escape from CTU, they see the people dying, and Barry asks what's wrong with them. The camera then shows a close-up of a woman choking and a man collapsing. After Chloe has locked down the rooms, the woman knocking on Bill's door collapses, then a security guard collapses, then it shows the same man and woman that the camera showed a close-up of collapsing and choking. It is obvious that they foolishly used the same shot twice.

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (4)

    • When Jack pulls out the device displaying the time remaining until the nerve gas canister is activated, it says 2 minutes and 10 seconds. But 60 seconds later, the canister is activated and bodies are dropping.

    • Elisha Cuthbert is uncredited in this episode.

    • In a very eerie parallel, Edgar Stiles (Louis Lombardi) dies under similar circumstances as his mother did in the previous season. In the episode, "Day 4: 3:00 P.M.-4:00 P.M.", Lucy Stiles (Nancy Linehan Charles) died when a cloud of nuclear fallout was released by terrorists from a nearby nuclear reactor. Like her son, she too was unable to escape (although, to be exact, she gave herself a sleeping pill overdose to beat the fallout).

    • As a tribute to the fallen CTU staff, the silent clock is used for the fifth time.
