    Alright! It's awesomeness time! That's what I'd be saying if this episode weren't so damn drab.
    Doyle and Josh wait at the beach for…the last fifteen minutes to roll around. Why kid ourselves? And Buchanan returns to help free Jack from CTU custody, after which they rush for the beach, suspecting that Phillip won't actually hand over the component.
    Now for the stuff that isn't worth mentioning at all. Karen gets into trouble for assisting Buchanan, but that'll only last an hour or so. And you can safely consider the Chinese invasion the final exciting thing to happen at the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit (do your damnedest, S7).
    The excellent music and split screen usage can't hide the fact that this episode is little more than a stepping stone. The Jack plot saves it from full-blown lameness, but it's tough to ignore the lack of tension in this World War III threat. The stupidest final seconds ever don't help. And not to compare seasons, but at this point in S5, we were facing the imminent abduction of the President of the United States (by our own protagonist, no less); here, the fate of the world rests on a teenage boy and an electronic chip. Nice try, but "Terminator 2" cannot be duplicated.

    Hourly Highlight:
    Buchanan breaking Jack out. Of the SUV. Hey, it's still badass.
