Twenty Four (24) -- Day 7 -- "1:00am to 2:00am" -- 04/13/09

Jack Bauer

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


Tony Almeida operates in the field as Hodges and Starkwood plan their attack with a biological weapon. Meanwhile, Jack's daughter, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert), returns, and Taylor's administration faces a blackmail attempt.



Uhhh Ohhh, a certain character from Jack's past returns. I know most of you guys hate her, but I've never had a problem with her....except the shit from Day 2, which seems to haunt her til this day. Granted, the character has done some really stupid things, but I think she's an important element to Bauer and what humanizes him keeps him wanting to live.

I don't mind her coming back as a cameo for a show or two ince in a while. The main problem with her charcter is that the writers just made bad decisions on how to keep her in the series. She was just a useless tool in season 2 and all of a sudden a CTU analyst in season 3!? Cameos are the way to go.

Wildlife alert: Considering how much time has supposedly passed since the first season...Kim is the cougar.

Not that I mind because I always read the episode description (and the opening credits would certainly give away this minor spoiler) but I think it's hilarious that you pretty much gave away exactly who the the character is eventhough you prefaced it with the vague "a certain character from Jacks past"

Here is a snapshot from this episode. Looks like Kim is in trouble.

Yeah I know, I tried to be vague, but it was pretty much a dead giveaway. I think there have already been articles and Kiefer mentioned in an interview that she would be coming back this season at some point.

If my calculations are correct, she would be around 29 or 30 in 24 years considering season 6 took place 9 years after season 1 and this season takes place 3-4 years after last season.

Sounds about right DJariya.

Gordon said that if they were keeping track it would be around 2017 in '24 time' for season 7. If that's the case, Kim was, what, 16 the first year? That would put her at 32 this season. Elisha Cuthbert is 26 according to her birthdate on imdb, so that really isn't that far off.

Pay attention: '24' is ticking again, and this one's a blast

USA Today

**** out of ****

A great day is about to get better.

Indeed, anyone with any affection for 24 is likely to love tonight's outing, which finds the series hitting one of its periodic reset buttons. But it's more than just a pivotal episode; it's a nearly ideal one, with some longed-for resolution, an emotional reconciliation, an exciting central sequence, and at least one surprise that's sure to leave you gasping.

Spoiler:
And yes, Kim returns. But before you scream "cougar" (poor Elisha Cuthbert, who was really more wronged than wrong), let it be said it's a well-handled, sufficiently well-explained return. And for those who are invested in the series, a necessary one, as there were open questions between Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and his daughter that needed to be answered.

The hour is built around the showdown between the president (the wonderful Cherry Jones) and Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight, who has created one of the show's more entertaining villains). Jonas is willing to put down his bioweapon, but he wants something in return, and you're about to find out what. (Those who accuse 24 of being a right-wing fascist fantasy haven't been watching; if anything, its view of power-mad executives and duplicitous officials borders on the anarchic.)
Meanwhile, back at the FBI, a bio-infected, office-bound Jack is down but not out. He's still capable of saving the day, even from a distance.

Telling more would be unfair. What matters is that, unlike last season, the dodges and disasters all feel fairly earned and are, for 24, reasonably restrained.

What that leaves you with is a fabulous outing that makes terrific use of all the tricks the medium has to offer, from the score to the editing, and terrific use of some fine actors, Sutherland chief among them. But it pays to remember what you're getting. 24 is a great TV show, but it's not a great drama, nor does it claim to be.

This isn't The Wire; you don't come to 24 for probing insights into the human condition. You come for the ride, the way it brings Jack, the world or the bad guys to the brink of disaster, makes escape seem impossible, and then arranges an escape. Ratchet up the stakes, repeat.

Its skill is in keeping you interested in the game and fooled by its variations on a theme. And this season, it has once again succeeded in making you want to stick around to see the bad guy punished.

Happily, there's more fun to come, as you'll see from tonight's final twist. And who knows, maybe Jack can even kick that lethal virus.

After all, why can't Jack come back from near death? His show sure has.



If I may borrow from the 'Lost' threads, Can't wait!

Wow only 30 minutes in. This episode has been incredible thus far.

EDIT: In the 24-Universe there should be a rule for all law enforcement officials...if you have a suspect shoot out his knee caps.

EDIT #2:

OH MY GOD

I don't even know what to say. This is so intense. I cannot wait until Jack kills Tony.

They didn't give Moss a Silent Clock did they?

I gotta say I didn't see that coming. And all throughout this episode I was thinking Tony was even cooler than usual.

Looks like Jack may get to make good on the promise he made to Tony at the beginning of the season

"So help me God I will kill you, and you will stay dead this time."

There were hints dropped earlier in the season that Tony could turn evil again. It was only a matter of time. But I never expected it at this point. Great twist!

Remember, Tony did bad things.
