  • Bryan Hastings should have been fired!!

    After having ignored the important lead provided by Jack and Chloe and almost having President Omar killed, Bryan Hastings should have been fired, I hate the character (since (S08E01) and his acting is even worse!!
  • Premiere Wrap-Up

    8.0
    I always love to see the contrast between Jack and other characters after they both experience the same events such as Jack losing Teri and Tony losing Michelle both handled it very differently. Same with Renee and torture it wasn't a concept she had been exposed to much and after spending a day with Jack her life has been turned upside down.

    With this episode an interesting dynamic is introduced with Jack and Renee going uncover with a sect of the Russian mob being one of my favorite plot lines in Season 8.moreless

    Renee Walker outdoes Jack Bauer in ruthless sadism. Bauer created a monster.

    I agree with screenagedkicks. This episode is the best of the four which opened the season. At this episode the season appears to be geting into its stride and I like that. Hastings finally got his head out of the clouds and realized he should listen to Chloe. That is definitely a step in the right direction. I was not the biggest fan of Renee Walker in the previous season, but in this episode I liked how she and Jack played off each other. They have good chemistry here and I hope it continues for the rest of the season.moreless
  • Love the end of this episode!

    It took a while but we finally get to see Renee back in the fold. Renee is brought in by CTU to provide intel on the Russians so that they can get close to them to find out information about the nuclear rods. It's revealed that she had previously been undercover with the Russians so CTU ends up asking her to go undercover. Jack doesn't want her to and ends up "babysitting" her while she goes to Zia to find out information about where Vlad is. This is where she gets a little psycho and cuts his thumb off (!!!) to get the tracking bracelet off. Totally out of left field, jaw dropping intensity 24 is known for. For all this, the episode deserves a 10/10. "Maybe for you, but I'm just getting started."moreless
