Didn't see a thread yet, so here it goes.

Spoiler:
They got Saunders, and Tony and Michelle are reunited. Although quite a few things happened, it still seemed like a filler episode to me. Great action at the end though, with Saunders getting surrounded from all areas and finally getting caught

Best single episode of TV I've seen all year.

Commercial skipping through AI, I saw a fraction of a second about some preview of Day After Next Thursday or whatever that Emmerich flick is, and went back to see what they were talking about, and on the screen flashed
Spoiler:
Michelle with a bloody nose.


Thanks fox.

Exellent episode. Michelle was very smart in how she got away from her captors.

Also, the ending is very tense. Now I'm wondering how they are going to be able to get Saunders to stop the virus from spreading. He doesn't seem to have much incentive for stopping it.

How on Earth can you call this a filler episode?

F18 Hornets flying through the city, then shooting an air-to-air missile at a helicopter. Wow! Hard to believe that they didn't have helicopter gunships of their own, but definitely entertaining.

One of the best hours of television I've seen in a long time...in fact, the action here was better than most theatrical movies I've seen! Intense stuff! The F-18s were a thrilling surprise, as well.
It's hard to believe this is the same season that was so lackluster earlier...the producers have really outdone themselves this year...BRAVO!

It's a shame that the other 20 or so hours haven't been this good...

The only thing that brought down this otherwise excellent episode was the Palmer stuff...

Again, it's a PILL BOTTLE!!

I had my doubts about purchasing Season 3 when it is on DVD, but this episode cleared it up.

Here's one thing that bothered me in an otherwise great episode....Wayne and David decide to "fix" the Sherri situation and literally 5 minutes later Wayne is meeting with that guy in the parking garage. Does that dude just sit in that parking garage all day waiting for jobs?

And does Wayne always willingly volunteer that the President is ordering illegal action without checking for bugs and then call him on the phone to possibly confirm it?

Er, I mean, flawless episode!!!

I loved this episode, especially the interaction between Tony and Jack.

I can even let the pill bottle thing go, since we get more of Keller, but, maybe it was just me, when Jack and Tony were at the payphone I kept getting the feeling Jane was going to run.

Aside from that minor gripe this is the best episode of the season, without a doubt.

Yeah, that seemed like a very Kim-esque thing to do [Jack leaving Jane in the truck alone...]. However, it was the easiest $10 I made..

BTW...I kept thinking that Jack would be responsible for Michelle getting killed thereby setting Tony up as the villain for season 4...

Just out of curioisity...why did people love this episode so much? Like what parituclar elements did you enjoy? Because I was expecting people to trash the episode.

When the strike teams came in it was freaking awesome. It all happened so fast and I thought it was edited together great.

Did anyone else think that the helicopter was going to get away from the two F-18 Hornets? Sounds unreasonalbe I know, but I just had that feeling. I'm glad it didn't.

That whole sequence was great, and I can't wait for the DVD's to watch it with 5.1 sound. It should be great.

Great episode.

I am surprised that the whole Palmer story line isn't tieing into the main plot that much. I figured it would. It's pretty much been a stand alone story thread this year.

^^ Yep. Very nicely filmed. The F-18's taking out the helicopter. Michelle kicks so much ass. Her character gets better every episode. Which is the polar opposite of Chloe. When Jack pulled Tony out of the car, I must say, Tony looked like hell. Looked like more of a bad guy than Saunders.

I don't get why David had to make such a rash decision so fast on the bottle. Keller didn't give him a time frame.

For such a badass terroist Saunders sure does run like a girl.

The shootout at the end was great.

I'm just going to pretend the Palmer story doesn't exist.
