President Omar Hassan Becomes Paranoid
14 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Guided by Dana, Kevin and his friend Nick Coughlin bust into the NYPD evidence locker; though Nick spends enough time window-shopping that a patrol officer almost catches them, Nick beats the officer with a baseball bat and the two escape. Dana is rattled by the incident, and both Arlo and Hastings notice her preoccupation. Omar Hassan continues to round up people who may be complicit in his brother's plot. When Tarin tries to reason with him, Hassan thanks him for taking on the moderating role his wife once played, but then has him arrested. Kayla, who is romantically involved with Tarin, decides to confront her father herself. Vladimir attempts to contact Bazhaev about the nuclear rods, so Bazhaev sends men to kill Vladimir's group, intent on keeping the deal secret. When Renee nags Vladimir to continue calling, Vladimir gets angry and attacks Renee; she stabs him 18 times, and Jack once when he attempts to intervene. After some bandages and a heart-to-heart, Jack convinces Renee to ignore her doubts and take the position that she acted in self-defense. Jack and Renee turn Laitanin's files over to CTU for investigation, as every phone call Laitanin made is a potential lead, but Bazhaev's hit squad gets there first. While Renee hides, "Mr. Meier" allows himself to be captured with the intention of leading CTU to Bazhaev; but by simple expedient of evacuating Jack through an underground tunnel, his captors get away unnoticed.

In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:

1.Tarin Faroush briefs President Omar Hassan on the status of the crackdown in Kamistan against the dissenters in Farhad's faction. Later, Tarin tells Kayla Hassan about the extreme measures that her father is using to find the traitors. Before they can do anything, Tarin is arrested by Nabeel on the President's orders; Kayla promises to speak to her father to help him.

2.President Allison Taylor tells Louis Dalton about the situation with the nuclear rods Farhad is trying to buy from Red Square.

3.Dana Walsh helps Kevin Wade and his partner break into an NYPD evidence locker. They manage to abscond with several hundred thousand dollars, but not before Nick Coughlin severely beats the patrolman on duty.

4.Vladimir Laitanan calls Sergei Bazhaev asking about nuclear materials for sale. Bazhaev denies any knowledge, then warns Josef that somebody knows about the rods.

5.Renee Walker presses Laitanan to keep searching for a contact who knows about the deal, but he refuses, striking her in the face. In a fit of rage, Renee stabs and kills Laitanan.

6.A group of Russians arrives at Laitanan's garage. Jack Bauer presents himself to them as a potential buyer, so that they will take him back to the real dealers of the nuclear rods. When Cole Ortiz arrives, Renee tells him what happened, but CTU reports that they can find no sign of their departure from the air.

Things heat up in this episode especially after President Omar Hassan of fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan becomes paranoid to the point that he intends more violence.It gives US President Allison Taylor to do some peaceful actions to take place.Also,we get to see Renee and Jack undercover for Laitanan and does some actions to lead them to the dealers of nuclear weapons.Nothing refreshing and original happens here for the most violent season - Day 8 - of 24 wherein we see Renee stab Vladimir Laitanan 18 times.
