24 7.12 Day 7: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (2009)

Juma and his men drill a surprisingly large hole under the White House using just a normal drill bit but the effect is devastating. Juma leads an attack on the White House with the President as his goal.


Jon Voight pops up again after showing his face in Day 7 prequel Redemption and, in an unusual nod toward Bond villain insanity, plays some darts after delivering a critical idea under apparently intense pressure. It’s a gleefully random moment but it doesn’t undermine the tension of the rest of the episode and the significant feeling that the mid-season clear-out is about to begin. Our heroes are between a rock and several hard-places and I’m itching to see how it’s all going to pan out without decimating the cast.

This 24 episode contains gun violence, unpleasant scenes, brief graphic blade violence.
