Where's the bomb?, 13 June 2008
Author: Max_cinefilo89 from Italy
So, what have we learned so far, based on the previous 13 episodes of
24 - Season 2? Well, there's a nuclear bomb somewhere in L.A., it was
brought there by a terrorist group known as Second Wave (with the help
of a covert American unit), Sherry Palmer was apparently conspiring
against her ex husband, sweet little Marie Warner helped the
terrorists, and as of the thirteenth hour of Day 2 Jack Bauer was this
close to closing in on the nuke.
Unfortunately, that would have ended the season way too soon, which is why it is revealed that the device they found at the airfield was in fact a decoy. At this point, all Jack can do is find Marie and pressure her to find out the exact location of the bomb. Meanwhile, President Palmer confronts Sherry, who naturally denies everything Roger Stanton said about her, and George Mason appoints Tony Almeida as his replacement at CTU after his condition worsens in the most unwelcome way. Oh, and Kim finds out Lonnie McRae (Kevin Dillon) lied to her about the explosion so she would stay with him (poor fella).
As I said in my review of the previous episode, the second half of Day 2 is shaping up to look just like its Season 1 counterpart: with the threat out of the way, it will be time to locate and punish the perpetrators. Who they might be, as well as what motives they could have, won't be fully clear until the very last few hours of the day, but hints of American involvement in the plot are very effective in keeping the suspense consistent, as is the introduction of a new CTU employee, played by Lourdes Benedicto, who immediately gives the impression of being unreliable.
In addition, this episode and the next do the greatest job at humanizing one of the most unlikable characters of the first season: okay, so he's dying, which makes him the ideal candidate for a re-evaluation, but watching George leave CTU forever is so powerful a sight you might not even remember what an utter pain in the ass he used to be. In fact, how is it that Xander Berkeley was denied an Emmy nomination?

*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Stanton reveals that there was a seventh commando with the Coral Snake
Unit. Jack also comes to this conclusion based on the bullet wounds
inflicted. One of the terrorists, Omar, attempts to escape by plane
with the bomb but is intercepted by Jack. The bomb is revealed to be a
decoy. Kate spots Marie trying to escape the airfield and is about to
be killed by her own sister until Jack intervenes, capturing Marie.
Jack and Kate try to break Marie's resolve so they can learn the
specific location of the bomb. Palmer confronts his ex-wife with the
information that Stanton gave him. The fatally-ill Mason steps down
from duty and appoints Tony new director of CTU.
In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:
1.George Mason steps down as director of CTU Los Angeles and gives the access codes to Tony Almeida, the new director. George then leaves CTU.
2.Kim demands Lonnie McRae let her go as she knows the bomb didn't go off. Lonnie confesses he lied, but explains that he just wanted company. After Lonnie gives her a gun for protection against cougars, Kim leaves into the forest.
3.President Palmer speaks to Sherry after interrogating Roger Stanton, who's known about the bomb for weeks. Then President Palmer orders Sherry to leave. He threatens to place her under arrest should she resist.
4.At Norton Airfield, Marie Warner points a gun at Kate Warner's head and threatens to kill Kate unless she hands over her badge. Kate resists and Jack comes out and shoots Marie in the arm, disabling her. Later, Marie confesses that the bomb is downtown, at the Arco Towers. Jack is suspicious because of Marie's hurried tone, and orders his agents to initiate a grid search of the airfield staring from north to south.
5.The N.E.S.T. unit runs to a truck and finds a green duffel bag inside. They open it, revealing the real nuclear bomb. Jack Bauer asks them how much time they've got. They respond by saying any second.
In this episode,we feel pain for George Mason as his condition worsens as well as for President Palmer as she grills Sherry about her knowledge of the current nuclear crisis that the country is facing.We also see in this episode that 24 is not only all about action but it also has its dramatic moments.
