24 7.10 Day 7: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM (2009)

With Jack and Renee in police custody, Marika continues to meet Dubaku and her doom. The conspirator in Moss’ FBI office is also taking more desperate and conspicuous action to conceal their identity but the gambles appear to be paying off.

6/10

Well, a rather silly episode with lots of holes and a couple of impactless deaths but this brings the organisational corruption arc to an end and, unconvincingly, sets up the plot for the next couple of episodes (something is scheduled to happen at 7:00 PM). It’s still thrilling, though, and, again, the violence is extremely brief and restrained. In an earlier season, Bauer would have been up to his elbow removing the data drive from a still-conscious Dubaku while and screeching the nails of his other hand down a blackboard and criticising his taste in cardigans for good measure. Annie Wersching as FBI Agent Renee Walker does another good job as her character’s trauma catch up with her but neither she, or the audience, get any answers out of a stoic Jack Bauer. Would we want it any other way? Well, yes, probably, but at least we can be thankful that he didn’t shout his answer at her. Kiefer’s throat must kill him after filming.

This 24 episode contains bad language and graphic gun violence, gory and unpleasant scene.
