The twists keep coming
19 August 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

In the first season, we got to know the Drazen family, who organized a series of assassination attempts to get back at Jack Bauer and David Palmer for something that happened a long time before the start of the show. They were merciless people, but at least they were united, thinking brotherly love got ahead of everything else. Why am I mentioning this? Because the end of the previous episode and the beginning of this one show an entirely different kind of bond between siblings.

So far, Ramon Salazar has been consumed by the wish to kill Jack for what happened in the past, whereas his brother Hector insisted on trusting him. Now, with Hector convinced something's wrong, the logical next step would have been to shoot Jack. Instead, Ramon kills Hector and decides to go through with the acquisition of the virus. Jack and Nina go with him, but everything gets off track when the CTU intervenes and Ramon escapes with the virus. Meanwhile, in L.A., Sherry is looking for something she can use against Alan Milliken, and comes really close to a foolproof witness of the billionaire's dirty secrets.

The first half of Day Three is finally over, and it does end with quite a bang: the manhunt that ensues when Ramon gets away is worthy of Michael Mann at his best, and the surprise ending (what else could it have been?) is a clear indication of things getting rougher in the remaining twelve episodes. This hour also shows Joaquim de Almeida at his most villainous, even scarier than he was nine years earlier in Robert Rodriguez's Desperado. It's a masterclass in pure evil that yet again shows how truly memorable the villains in this series can be.
