Jack the robber
9 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

For pure inventiveness alone, this episode deserves a special place among the finest hours of 24's history. The previous hour's last scene hinted at the possible genius of what was to come, and the fourth episode of Day 4 exceeds those expectations with gusto and grit.

What's happened is Jack was following a suspect on the highway after rescuing Andrew Paige and said suspect stopped at a gas station. In order to keep him there long enough for Chloe to set up a satellite surveillance, something drastic was needed. Hence the brilliant decision of putting on a ski mask, entering the gas station's convenience store with a gun in full sight and staging a robbery. Too bad Driscoll has been tipped off by Sarah and Edgar (Louis Lombardi) regarding Chloe's behavior and is determined to stop Jack once and for all. On the other end of the line, Dina Araz has to resort to extreme measures when Behrooz's girlfriend discovers too much, and Secretary Heller and Audrey try to escape from their captors.

Yes, Driscoll is still the least interesting character introduced on the show so far, but this time her confrontation with Bauer is a truly tense affair, courtesy of the cleverness of the opening set-up and the added tension coming from the connected subplots. If the rest of the season - or at least most of it - stays on track like this, 24 will once again be able to assert its position as the most exciting thriller on television.
