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.

Day 7: A Season Review
8 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the final episode of Season 7 of 24.Let's make a summary of the events that transpired for the last 24 hours.

Season Seven takes place 42 months after Season Six and begins with Jack Bauer on trial for alleged crimes he committed while working for CTU. Senator Blaine Mayer has disbanded CTU and strengthened the policies of Allison Taylor's administration against torture. Bauer is brought into another counter-terrorist operation when FBI agent Renee Walker interrupts the hearing to tell him about an imminent threat.

Day 7 is divided into small acts which portray the villains as having an ever-changing agenda.

1.Warlord Ike Dubaku breaches a government firewall and attempts to cause massive damage. Dubaku subsequently tries to manipulate President Taylor by kidnapping her husband.

2.A unit of soldiers from Sangala invades the White House and takes President Taylor hostage.

3.Mercenaries from Starkwood acquire a prion weapon and threaten to deploy it on major American cities.

4.Tony betrays Jack and the FBI by stealing the last canister of the pathogen and attempting to use it against civilians.

The creators of 24 have rebounded from their heavily criticized and previous disappointing Day 6 or sixth season.One big reason is having Jon Voight as part of the cast as Jonas Hodges.He simply played his character as someone creative and will stop at nothing at succeeding.He was simply one of the strongest villains that Jack Bauer has ever encountered.

Another is the re-introduction of fan favorite 24 characters such as Chloe O'Brian,Bill Buchanan,Aaron Pierce and the previously assumed dead Tony Almeida.Also included in that line-up is Jack's daughter,Kim Bauer,who had an emotional reunion with her father and at the same time,she played a heroine in one of the action sequences.

But one thing that stood out in this season is the politics of torture.It played out a big factor in the story which was somewhat controversial to the series since many reviewers have been critical about it.Nevertheless,it the season was a big success and a lot better than the previous one - season 6.
