Did You Know?


Mason tells his son of an account he has that no one knows about-an account that has $200,000 in it. That wasn't entirely true. Jack learned of that account in the premier episode Jack accused George of stealing the money after taking down a wealthy arms dealer. See more »

"I'm dying, John"
17 March 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

George Mason: huge pain in the ass. That's how people would describe him in Season One, at least. In this episode, he becomes George Mason: warm, sympathetic human being. And for some twisted reason, the transformation works.

The change of attitude is linked to George's attempt to reconnect with his estranged son, John, before he dies. In the meantime, he still has to coordinate Tony's joint interrogation of Reza (Phillip Rhys) and Bob Warner (John Terry), both of whom have now been taken to CTU for further questioning. Elsewhere, David Palmer and his Chief of Staff Mike Novick (Jude Ciccolella) have reason to doubt Roger Stanton's loyalty, and Jack Bauer finds himself working with Nina Myers, as they head to Visalia to retrieve vital information.

The suspense in this episode is exceptional, particularly in the Visalia section, with Jack and his men preparing to raid a building with Nina's help, a fact that raises the stakes since she is all but reliable. And yet, somehow all of that is overshadowed by two brief scenes featuring Mason and his son. Throughout Day 1, the main pleasure of George's presence derived from his sardonic remarks, especially those about Nina (considering Sarah Clarke and Xander Berkeley are married in real life). Over the course of seven shows of Day 2, he has evolved into a deeper character, to the point that he can break the audience's heart in the touching goodbye scene, something that would have been unheard of previously.

Oh, and for those who thought Kim Bauer couldn't get into more trouble: check out this hour's cliffhanger - contrived, but riveting nonetheless.
