Man, Audrey can't catch a break. Just two hours ago, she was being tortured by her own people; now she's badly wounded in a nasty standoff between Bauer and Henderson. And while we're on the subject of Christopher Henderson, Peter Weller plays a great heavy. The guy's a real slime and gits very well as a psychopath.

The big surprise here is Defense Secretary Heller (William Devane), who completely messes everything up. Has has Logan dead to rights, but Heller turns on him in order to negotiate with the president himself. And this, after an entire episode of everyone close to the oval office finally sensing something amiss about the commander-in- chief.

Unusual for "24", the big surprise (Heller's double-cross) comes not at the end, but early on. It's an episode that raises the stakes unbelievably high.
