  • President Hassan decides to turn himself to terrorist to save lives in US.

    Another entertaining episode. Following last week's episode, Jack is trying to thwart the terrorists attempt to get Hassan.

    Omar realizes that the terrorist will detonate the the bomb in US unless their demands are made. You can debate whether Omar's decision was bravery or stupidity, but it was of course going to be the focus of the episode.

    As was Weiss and the General's eventual outing by Ctu and President Taylor. This of course was not predictable because you would think that following Olivia's stupid actions last year that nobody would try to go against the President. However, realistically speaking this makes sense because politics and people in the military at high level tend to disregard other people's lives as long their own objectives our met. I also like that President Taylor held her ground throughout all this, where as other President's (Logan)wouldn't think twice about handing a world leader over. Her character has been believable, and never faltering to take a stand, even when the opportunities have been there to diminish her reputation.

    By now Dana's betrayal has been uncovered, but it was fun to see her getting rattled, realizing that the charade is over.

    All in all a solid episode.
