Jack Tortures Pavel To Extract Information
14 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While NYPD takes Cole into custody and turns him over to CTU, Jack peruses Dana's memory stick, which shows her meeting with Pavel to organize both Hassan's assassination and the dirty-bomb plot but does not indicate who either of them is reporting to. After securing more help from Jim Ricker, he contacts Meredith Reed and offers to give the evidence to her. CTU intercepts this phone call, and Logan calls Pavel with orders to set up an ambush. Chloe takes note of Pillar's secretive actions, and begins to suspect that he is involved with the conspirators. With Arlo's semi-willing assistance, she begins a private manhunt for Jack. Logan convinces President Taylor to publicly praise his involvement in the signing of the peace treaty. This backfires spectacularly when Jack uses Reed to lure the Russian assassins out into the open, capturing Pavel and killing the rest with the help of Ricker. Pillar urges Logan to back out and deny all involvement, but Logan decides to stay in the spotlight. Jack gives Dana's evidence to Reed and then attempts to get the answers out of Pavel by brutally torturing him; but, for once in Jack's life, his preferred interrogation methods do not have any impact. Finally it occurs to Jack that Pavel's cell phone might give him everything he needs, but Pavel managed to drop his phone, dislodge its SIM card and swallow it during his brief captivity. Jack cuts him open to retrieve it, avenging Renee. The redial feature takes an astonished Jack to "the voicemail of President Charles Logan."

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

1.Meredith Reed receives a phone call from Jack Bauer requesting to meet with her, so that he can provide evidence that Russian nationals were behind the assassination of President Omar Hassan

2.Jason Pillar intercepts Jack's phone conversation with Ms. Reed and conspires with Charles Logan to ambush him at the department store where they planned to meet.

3.Chloe O'Brian asks Cole Ortiz to help her locate Jack Bauer. He suggests that she identify the person providing him with equipment now that CTU has turned against him.

4.Pavel Tokarev is captured by Jim Ricker just as he is about to eliminate Jack Bauer. After a shootout with Russian agents, the two escape with both Tokarev and Meredith Reed in tow.

5.Pillar realizes that Bauer anticipated the ambush set up for him at the mall.

6.Jack Bauer gives Reed the video evidence exposing the Russian government's role in President Omar Hassan's murder. Then, he brutally tortures Pavel to learn who ordered the assassination of Renee Walker. Eventually, he discovers that Pavel has swallowed the SIM card for his cell phone, and cuts open his innards to retrieve it. Reinstalling the card, Jack redials the last called number and reaches the voicemail for President Charles Logan.

Jack is determined to discover who is behind the assassination of Renee Walker as he uncovers an unexpected lead in Pavel by undergoing him into the process of interrogation and torture - a characteristic the show is known for.

Did Jack need to take Dana Walsh's life? Was it really necessary? Her life was pathetic already, you have to admit, always getting shoved around and beaten up like a punching back, it came to a point where I just felt sorry for her. Still couldn't the writers find another way to get her out of the picture.

Finally,we get to see another reused element with Jack working with Chloe at CTU considering now that he is hiding from authorities in order to fulfill a mission.
