On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 2:00 PM and
3:00 PM, Senator David Palmer calls Alan Opticam from Pentagon to break
the protocol of an internal investigation in CTU conducted by Regional
Director Ryan Chappelle and have a meeting with Jack Bauer. After
clarifying the misunderstand about the incident in the power plant with
Jack, the Senator discovers that the attempt is not related to the
election process or racism, but just a revenge against the Operation
Nightfall, which was ordered by him. They call Robert Ellis in New
Orleans and explain that someone close to Victor Drazen seems to have
connected David Palmer to Jack Bauer and wants revenge on the day of
the second anniversary of Nightfall. Ellis sends a couple of missing
files and they disclose that Drazen's wife and daughter were in the
bunker that was exploded. Palmer forces Chappelle to reinstate Jack
Bauer to his position in a provisional status for the rest of the day.
Meanwhile Elizabeth is seduced by Drazen's brother and unintentionally
provided information about David Palmer and his family. In the
safe-house, Teri unravels the past relationship of Nina and Jack.
In the fifteenth episode of "24", Jack Bauer clears his name with Senator David Palmer and they disclose a personal vendetta against themselves and their families. Teri is really pregnant and disappointed with the discovery of the affair of Nina and Jack. The silly Elizabeth is being sexually manipulated and giving the necessary information to the terrorists. The best moment of this show is when Alberta Green is removed by the senator from Jack Bauer's position. The best quote is when Jack says: "Being a son or a daughter or a father, none of it's easy". My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "14:00"
The moment many people were awaiting has finally come: the very first
time that Kiefer Sutherland and Dennis Haysbert share the same frame.
The occasion? Having learned Jack Bauer led an operation in Kosovo and was the sole survivor, David Palmer, who authorized that mission, thinks he is out for revenge and requests to speak to him. Once the two meet, though, things are straightened up right away: Jack had no idea Palmer was involved in Operation Nightfall, and a quick phone call to Robert Ellis (Wade Williams), the man who recruited Jack, confirms their worst fears - Andre and Alexis Drazen, sons of the dead terrorist leader Victor Drazen, know about Nightfall and want to punish those behind it, two years after the event. Things might even be easier than one could imagine, given Alexis is sleeping with a woman from the Senator's staff... Meanwhile, at the CTU safe-house, Teri Bauer learns of her husband's past relationship with Nina, and finds it very difficult to cope with such news.
This is a fundamental episode on so many levels: firstly, the real nature of the threat is finally revealed, bringing a refreshingly personal angle to the drama (the conspirators' hatred is increased by the fact that Bauer inadvertently killed their mother and sister as well); secondly, Leslie Hope, having been little more than a scream queen (though in a good way) until now, gets some real actorial meat to chew on, her painfully sincere conversation with Sarah Clarke being one of the season's most poignant instants; last but not least, the interaction between Sutherland and Haysbert is extraordinary, as both players resort to a bag of emotions, including fear and frustration, to form a solid bond that has proved one of the foundations of later years. In addition, fans of Prison Break ("the new 24" according to some) should take a look at Williams (Brad Belllick on PB) playing a secret agent: he may be on the right side, but he still looks and acts (he is, after all, undercover) like a real scumbag.
The best bit, of course, is when Bauer and Palmer realize they have more in common than meets the eye. "Being a son or a daughter or a father, none of it is easy." says Jack. Boy, is he right.
