Chloe O'Brian: Edgar, I appreciate your concern. I really do. It's just that when I shot that guy I thought I'd go all fetal position, but the truth is I didn't feel anything, at all. I hope I'm not some kind of a psychopath.

Jack Bauer: A Noble Man Who Can't Ever Seem To Win
14 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writers are trying to torment me. The one person I can't stand on Season Four is "Audrey," Jack's supposed girlfriend who has dumped him to get back with her separated husband, but hasn't told him yet. When push comes to show at the end of this episode, where Jack decides that saving millions of lives are better than risking one (her husband), she, of course, violently disagrees.

Why is it that Jack, many times, is about the only person on this show who always put his country's welfare - and its millions of citizens - above anything else, including his own welfare? Where are the other heroes?

Much of this episode is another example of that as Jack leads an assault on the Chinese embassy to bring out the one man who might be able to tell us where Marwan is, and stop a nuclear explosion from taking place. As usual, Jack is told he's on his own and, if caught, he won't get help as this is "a mission that didn't happen." Boy, that sounds familiar....but Jack never says no, nor complains; he just does it, and then takes the consequences.
