When Behrooz and Tariq are in the desert burying the body, Tariq brings a gun with a silencer. When he shoots the gun as it is being knocked out of his hand we also hear the silenced gun shot sound. The gun on the ground shown next has no silencer. The silencer couldn't have fallen off because it is threaded onto the barrel. See more »

Non Stop Action and the Revealing of a Villain
27 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The episode begins with the attack on the compound just as Heller is beginning to speak to the camera. Jack makes his way in. In most shows, this part would have been the end. But there are obviously bigger fish to fry. Heller and daughter are brought to CTU and Heller shows what an absolute crud he is. His son has been tortured from the moment he got there and Heller makes a harsh decision. Also, the estranged husband of Heller's daughter shows up and we can see that he is up to no good. In the final minutes of this episode we are introduced too the fly in the ointment.
