24 7.04 Day 7: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (2009)

Jack and Tony escape FBI custody and meet up with Bill Buchanan and Chloe O’Brian and arrange to get Tony back undercover.


Quietly moving the naval retreat deadline back at least half-an-hour to the end of the next hour, this is the episode where the writers have dumped all the awkward lumps accrued over the last three weeks and necessary to keep the Jack / Tony plot relevant. The explanation for Tony’s non-deadness is unintentionally funny (they might as well have used super-strong smelling salts or Jesus pills) but to their credit, while the bumps are not smoothed out, they do get us to go along with it and suspension of disbelief is critical for shows like this. Disbelief is still suspended and so the episode is a success and Tony’s Dark Knight van jump is looking cooler each time they show it.

This 24 episode contains bad language and gun violence.
