Did You Know?


The original script for this episode, was set up to have Kim arriving with Chase Edmunds (James Badge Dale) to CTU. Chase Edmunds was Kim's boyfriend and Jacks partner in season 3. However, James Badge Dale wasn't able to return for this episode, so it was changed to have Kim arrive with her psychiatrist and boyfriend, Barry Landes instead. See more »

Kim Is Back in the Serpent's Den
31 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Some really exciting stuff here. First of all, the Vice President has shown up with a plan for martial law to prevent casualties; however; he must have his own agenda. He is played by that guy I loved to hate on "Twin Peaks." That Russian guy has infiltrated CTU by using McGill's key card. Security really sucks at times. Kim is back, one of my least favorite characters. She is just finding out that Jack is alive. There are times when I forget all this takes place in one day. I mean, in the morning, Jack was with that family, hiding out. They continue to interrogate the former boss. And then a devastating loss takes place at the end. Great episode.
