Torture time
25 March 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

"You really are very sweet...". Normally, a phrase like that is not followed by murder, but hey, 24 is no rom-com, right? Still, cute little Marie Warner (Laura Harris), one of the bad guys? Kudos to the writing team - never saw that one coming.

So, with Reza dead and Marie on the run, Jack's only lead in the pursuit of Syed Ali is Kate Warner, who overheard a conversation between the terrorist leader and his followers: he is going to a mosque for one final prayer before the attack is carried out. While the manhunt reaches its end, David Palmer has to make a tough decision as he has Roger Stanton arrested and brings in a torture specialist (Steven Culp) to extract information from the treacherous NSA director.

Whereas the majority of thrillers would exploit similar plot lines to squeeze in some extra action/violence, this series relies on intelligent scripts which highlight the complex personalities that inhabit the show's relentlessly gripping universe. Revealing a typical L.A. girl was working for the enemy is a stroke of genius; accompanying that with an unseen character trait of the Commander in Chief is one of the program's most laudable achievements. Having already dealt with Palmer's rougher side in Day 1, when Sherry's machinations required desperate measures, Haysbert goes even deeper in this episode, and he does it with a profound sense of self-awareness that puts all other TV presidents, The West Wing's Bartlet aside, to shame. Those who wrote the watchable but utterly dumb Harrison Ford vehicle Air Force One ought to take note: this is how a realistic Presidential figure handles bad events.
