Kiefer Sutherland: Jack Bauer
24 7.09 Day 7: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM (2009)
First Chap Henry Taylor has been shot in the chest, is bleeding badly and the prognosis is dire. Dubaku finalises his plans to leave the country taking girlfriend Marika with him but is all too aware that his life is now in danger. He exerts pressure to ensure that he will escape safe and that will make Jack and Renee’s pursuit harder and riskier than they can imagine.
Another excellent episode with the focus more on personal impact for Agent Renee Walker, President Allison Taylor and unknowing Dubaku girlfriend Marika Donoso. We also get the reveal of a Dubaku conspirator inside Moss’s office SPOILER which is nicely misdirected. END SPOILER Again the change of pace works wonders for the show and means that the bits that are supposed to be tense such as the last minute or two are genuinely so and not lost amid a sea of would-be tension. Nice to welcome back Glenn Morshower as Agent Aaron Pierce (making him the only cast member other than Kiefer Sutherland to appear in every day) but it would have been an even nicer surprise if his name hadn’t been on the opening credits.
This 24 episode contains bad language and a gory scene.
