Throughout the season they keep referring to the reactors going "critical". However, when a reactor is operating normally, it is said to be "critical". In other words, criticality is the normal operating condition for a nuclear reactor. See more »

Tony Almeida: Let's try to open up a negotiation.
Dina Araz: My husband won't negotiate.
Tony Almeida: Why is that?
Dina Araz: He doesn't need to. He has to assume I have agreed to help you in return for my son's safety.
Tony Almeida: Well, he can't stay down there with him forever.
Dina Araz: He won't. In two hours, all the reactors will have gone critical. After that, it won't matter what I tell you, and he can kill my son. I am only helping you to save his life. I believe in our cause, and if you ...

How About More Respect For Edgar?
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, at least my earlier complaint or question about how such unreliable, less-than- honorable people could work at a high-security place like C.T.U., is shown to be a justifiable one. Right off the bat, in the first minute, the unit's director, "Erin Driscoll," along with "Curtis" agree to fudge the files to cover their butts because they don't want to get in trouble for hiring the person who turned out to be the mole! Unbelievable! Is anybody outside of Jack Bauer totally honest or competent? I guess a few, but not many.

One of them, it turns out, is the nerdy "Edgar Stiles." He's a sharp guy. What don't they give this guy some credit? They don't even say "thanks" for discovering the mole and doing all the good he's doing....like figuring a way to shut down most of the power plants before they melt down. Who else is doing this? The man gets no respect. So far, he's the office hero in this story. Bauer is the Rambo-Superman out in the field but good ole Edgar is more than carrying his weight with the computers, and that's saying a lot since he's a big boy.

Anyway, after last week's incredibly-dramatic with bombs and assassinations, we pick up with the continuing saga of how Jack and the crew is going to find this "override" device to stop six remaining nuclear plants from a meltdown, and we also have the story of the two Ariz family members - mom and teenage son - on the run, from their dad and his terrorist group who need to kill them.

The latter- the story of the Ariz family - is the bulk of the suspense in this episode. Without spoiling anything, all I can say is I was right in the previous comments that the father, "Navi," was in big-time trouble, thanks to the other two members of his family. Funny, but I am anything but sympathetic to the mom and son. Are we supposed to be?
