"Live Another Day" or "Season / Day 9" of 24 started as a cure for all fans who wanted so badly to see Jack Bauer in action again. But slowly (since the episodes five and six) became in a truly spectacular, imaginative and powerful season which raised the bar for a show that lost the point with its three last seasons (despite still being real good television). With the death of Margot and the reappearance of Cheng this special event finally became in the kind of sequel that I wanted to see since the early promos. And now... It's over. And it's over in the most meaningful way possible. It can be unexpected or necessary. It can be depressing or beautiful. But this finale is one of best episodes aired on television in recent memory. For the first time an episode of 24 can reach the powerful and dramatic level of "True Detective", "Game of Thrones" or "Breaking Bad". With this season and this ending, 24 finally redeems itself and closes a whole chapter in a satisfying way. Every plot is resolved in spectacular fashion. Every character shines bright. William Devane is awesome. Kiefer Sutherland has a powerful ending. The final moments, that final shot, that closing clock... Everything will be remembered for sure. Whatever it happens in the future, this will go down as one of the best seasons of the show (Even I admit that for some this could be the best of all) and this last episode ranks the poll of best seasons finale of the ninth series.
