Applause Aplause 24 another wonderful installment.
20 January 2009 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The action in this episode was there from beginning to finish, and even the ending would leave you anticipating more.

I had to take a break and absorb every detail before I got to this review, since every detail is so engaging throughout this entire episode.

From Renee's capture to Jack's bullet in the back, this installment marked the ongoing adrenaline 24 moves its audience with.

I anticipated that Jack would have established some way to get Matoba and his wife out of the safe-house. Even when Matoba's wife opened the room to get air which would've also ended with her demise. I felt as though she had no choice in the matter; she couldn't watch her husband and herself suffer when the key to her freedom was right in front of her.

I appreciate the risks this series takes on and the journey it would venture it's characters throughout the hours.

The President displayed her strength where she showed that she was bigger than the bullies that threaten her country. It makes me wonder how she would overcome the threats when they surface.

I strongly felt for her husband Henry, helplessly paralyzed on the floor at the mercy of his trusted confidant (Brian). It didn't surprise me that he showed his true colors. After Henry discovered the truth, Brian would've found some way to keep him quiet. It was still heartbreaking; Henry finding out about his sons death, unable to wring Brian's neck in the process, falling prey to Brian's clutches while Brian defends his actions with his "I tried to protect you" liner.

It is amazing how 24 keeps our interest with these noteworthy plot lines. We see a new side to Tony and Jack-playing a ruthless savage, convincing at that. I wonder if Emmerson used Renee's death as another test to satisfy his confidence in Jack and Tony to get the job done. I sense a sort of wariness in his intense stare; like if he was assessing whether or not Jack would kill in cold blood.

I think Renee really had faith in Jack in the beginning as she seemed to have adopted some of his overpowering strategies. She acts like a rookie cop, venturing out on her own without back-up. I saw the devastation in Jack's eyes when he saw her, he hated pulling the trigger. There was also the irony; the only way she could get out alive is for Jack to pull that trigger, gives us a sense of hope.

I wonder if she realized what Jack did for her, she saw that Jack knew she was still alive.

Even though Chloe and Bill was absent in this hour, it didn't harm or show any lack thereof on this take.

Overall another reason to keep hour eyes on the clock hoping the hour hasn't come to an end and we would have to wait an entire week to quench our curiosities.
