24 7.08 Day 7: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM (2009)

With his infrastructure attack capability well and truly stuffed by Bauer, Dubaku retreats and consoles himself with the one chip he has left: First Dude Henry Taylor. Jack and Matobo go to the White House to see President Taylor face-to-face.

8/10

"The rules are what make us better." "Not today." Is it acceptable to discard etiquette for what you perceive to be the greater good? 24 is asking this question more successfully than ever. Jack has long since ceased pretending to use anyone else’s moral compass and doesn’t even think twice about doing what he considers needs to be done. Renee Walker (Annie Wersching) is the audience surrogate here and is proving a highly effective device to generate an unusual level of empathy with the situation for us. What would we do? Cherry Jones as President Allison Taylor gets easily her best scene of the series so far when reacting to Dubaku’s demands.

This 24 episode contains bad language and a brief extremely unpleasant scene.
