  • Sewers: The Achilles Heel of High Security Facilities

    Did you know that underground sewers are the Achilles Heel of otherwise impregnable high-security facilities?

    Amazing but true!

    CTU Los Angeles, and even the White House are readily accessible to terrorists through the sewer pipes that run underneath them.

    And guess what?

    The security experts in charge, such as the US Secret Service, are totally unaware of the existence of these sewer systems, or have never thought to seal them up for the sake of safety.

    Little known fact.moreless
  • Every inhibiting piece of realism for itself

    Alright, let's move on to the next threat! …right after we find out what it is.In the meantime, Kanin tries to get Senator Blaine Mayer to call off the prosecution against Jack. The political tug-of-war here actually isn't that boring, and it comes to a rather hilarious end when they catch Jack torturing Ryan Burnett just several rooms away.The Sangala invasion goes well, except Benjamin Juma's not there. Where could he be, you ask? Actually, you don't ask, because you already know he's in DC and ready to light up the night. But first he sends someone to kill Dubaku, which leads to Renee finding Juma's hideout and learning what he's planning. Too bad she's too busy swimming for her life to warn anyone at hour's end. And no, Renee getting wet is NOT the Hourly Highlight. Technically.We spend most of the episode in the dark on Juma's target. That's the theory, anyway; the season promos did kinda ruin the surprise. But that doesn't take away from Jack returning to his torturous ways, especially since—with S7's deconstructive focus—some horror is meant to come across along with the awesomeness of watching Jack do his thing inside the WHITE HOUSE (even if he does fail to learn the target).Hourly Highlight:Watch the scene where Jack gets arrested… Watch the first soldier who runs in… Watch him go practically out of his way to kick a chair…and try not to wonder why.moreless
  • Now the real stuff begins

    As with the 6 previous episodes of 24, the first terrorist attack or wave of attacks are just a smoke screen for the big one that is being planned. We now learn that General Juma is planning a larger scale attack.

    When Dubaku is in the hospital after the car wreck, one of General Juma's operatives injects him with something that causes cardiac arrest. The operative gets away but Renee tracks him from footage of surveillance cameras and gets his license plate number.

    Cloe gets on the bad side of Janis Gold, causing Janis to dig into the what she is doing. She finds that Cloe had erased Ryan Burnett's name from the list that Dubaku had on the data device that was cut out of his side. She also unscrambles a phone call between Cloe and Jack where they discuss Burnett being removed from the list. Cloe is immediately detained by the FBI.

    It is found out Senator Blaine Mayer's assistant, Ryan Burnett is one of the traitor's to his country. Jack tries to interrogate him but is stopped short of getting the needed info on the pending attack. Jack uses "his" interrogation techniques to try and get the information from Burnett, but the President,Ethan Kanin,and Senator Blaine Mayer assisted by some Marines blow down the door and stop Jack from torturing Burnett. Burnett is offered full immunity by the President and turns it down asking for his attorney.

    In the end, Renee tracks down the car that the operative that killed Dubaku was driving. She finds that they are at the marina and Juma and his soldiers go out on a boat and Renee jumps on board at the last minute but gets caught by the soldier left on the boat as a guard. But not before she finds that the next target may be the White House. She jumps off the boat and swims ashore.

    Juma and his band of merry me are all under water and start drilling on something.

    This was a great episode with the focus of being removed from Dubaku (he's dead) onto General Juma.

    No one in the government suspected that Juma was in the US, but assumed that he was in Sangala fighting back the US troops.moreless
  • What an episode!

    Jack meets Burnet in White House(who is with Juma and his soldiers)and tortures him in order to find out a valuable information: where the next target is.

    Meanwhile, Renee finds Juma and his men and discover what they are planning.

    This is the incredible plot of the present installment from the seventh season of 24.

    This episode is really perfect and with nice points of tension that will make you scream and putting in the edge of your seat!.

    The acting is perfect and the places are so great and really cool and interesting: The White House itself!.

    And the ending makes you to look forward to the next installment!.

    Maybe the target is a bit predictable... but it stills being perfect!.moreless
  • Ryan was utilized as a filler to delay the real relevant material that will play in the next episode.

    Presentation Phase - » (8/10). The presentation ends when Jack had another crazy idea that only him can do. Juma is prepared to attack and Dubaku is killed, nice presentation.

    Complication Phase - » (7/10)*2. Jack had another crazy idea that can only put him in Jail, he wants to interrogates Ryan (chief staff of Senator Myer) in the White House. Another attack will happen and this time it seems serious.

    Climax Phase - » Wasn´t the time for that, the next episode will reach the climax of this plot.

    Ending - » (8/10). Nice ending, a new threat that is totally new and unique in 24.

    Time and Scene Management - » (6/10). This episode utilized Ryan to make the fillers and some discussion, since he is irrelevant for the attack that will happen.

    Plot Details/Holes- » (10/10). Nothing that I could notice, the discussion in the White House was very good and well explored.

    Surprises/Shocks/Twists - » (9/10). Here the surprises had big impact, Juma appearance is not something very surprising, but the plans for the White House is.

    Suspense/Tension - » (6/10)*3. Scenes like Chloe helping Chloe with the danger of being caught or Jack torturing someone is nothing new that can deliver great tension. The tension when Jack was extracting information was good, but nothing very good or great. Renee investigation had some tension.

    What I liked -» Hard to say, at least the discussions was entertaining.

    What I Didn´t Liked -» Ryan as a filler.

    Ryan was utilized as a filler to delay the real relevant material that will play in the next episode.moreless
