Trivia

During the majority of this season, the 24 on-screen ticking clock appeared during various commercial breaks with an announcer voice saying, "It's a whole new day. Jack will be right back." The clock served to remind viewers that, even though they were watching commercials, time in the 24 universe still continued to tick. The clock was dropped near the end of Season 2 and was not used again. See more »

Goofs

Michelle is seen dropping Jack off in a helicopter to retrieve the car for his cover, presumably across town. In the very next scene, she is back at her desk conferring with Tony. See more »

Time to go undercover
17 February 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In the previous episode, Jack Bauer killed a man and sawed his head off for the sake of credibility. Here, he breaks another guy's ankle for the same reason. Not really the kind of stuff you see on an average telly show, huh?

The reason Jack is behaving like that is he's going undercover to gain information from a man named Joseph Wald, the only lead CTU has in the case of the nuclear threat. Problem is, Jack's the agent who sent Wald to prison back in the day, so he needs assets to show he is on the "right" side and not to be messed with. Hence the head and ankle. In a less dangerous neighborhood, on the other hand, Kim Bauer is trying to keep a little girl she is babysitting away from said infant's potentially abusive father, and Kate Warner's suspicions about her future brother-in-law get worse after learning he might be involved with a known terrorist.

After a pitch-perfect start, the second season moves forward in an even darker fashion: all of a sudden, even your own home is no longer a safe haven. Of course, the domestic violence thread is nothing more but an excuse to get Kim into trouble, but with such care for the subplot and its connection to the main arc (a tie that isn't that strong to begin with), why complain? It even allows Elisha Cuthbert to develop a more mature side of her character compared to the rebellious teenager she was in Day 1.

That's nothing compared to the old man, though: watching Jack maintain his cover at all costs is a riveting experience, especially in the final minutes, which indicate events will turn incredibly ugly come the following hour. Few shows provide that kind of thrill on such a regular basis.
