Did You Know?


Towards the end of the episode, just after President Taylor re-enters the room where her husband and daughter are waiting, and embraces them both, the camera tilts up slightly too far and reveals a black void where the ceiling should be. See more »


Renee Walker: If we don't find these people, one day they will launch another attack, and I don't see how I can live with myself knowing that there was something I could have done to stop it. I don't know what to do.
Jack Bauer: I can't tell you what to do. I've been wrestling with this my whole life. I - I see 15 people held hostage on a bus, and everything else goes out the window. I will do whatever it takes to save them - and I mean whatever it takes. I guess maybe I thought if I save them, I could save myself.

Another season goes out on an ellipsis
22 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As finales go, the requisite deceptions, plot twists and shootouts are present and accounted for. But it's at its best during the quieter moments that occupy the back half. In particular, an exchange between Kiefer Sutherland and Annie Wersching on where the line is drawn in this business (it's a great scene, further driving home the point that nothing is black and white), as well as the image of Renee laying down her badge before interrogating the enemy. Jack and Renee are locked in a battler for their own souls and I though that was a nice way to end it.

But as a whole, this season has really been hit or miss, and some of the blunders are real face-palms. Take the main villain, for instance, the bad guy that they retconned as the mastermind behind the deaths of David Palmer, Tony and Michelle way back in season 5. Who'd they get to play him? Will Patton, who's way too kindly to pull off that level of sinister. Especially when they just had Jon Voight and killed him off (now *that's* an actor for this role!). The character of Alan Wilson is just too vanilla on which to hang such a far-reaching narrative arc.

But that doesn't even touch the dead horse that is Tony Almeida. He's bad - no, wait, he's just undercover - nah, he's been bad the whole time! The mechanics of bringing him back to life just don't hold water (does "missed the artery" qualify as "jumped the shark" here?). It's beyond lazy and they really should've left this character alone.

Outside of the torture moralizing, there was some bad writing this season.
