Kiefer Sutherland: Jack Bauer
As soon as Jack regains control and coherence he tells Renee, then the President, of Almeida’s duplicity and betrayal. With no actual leads to work on, Jack has to second-guess his adversaries’ intentions and actions.
A breather episode for the audience this week as our heroes regroup in anticipation of an immediate kicking-while-they’re-down by the mysterious group of baddies. Jack still looks like he’s really going to die. While a last-minute reprieve from an incurable disease would be kinda rubbish, that’s exactly what I want and, if it happens, I must remember not to moan about it. This episode features Kiefer Sutherland’s Total Recall face, several ‘this is the only’ and ‘I’m fine’ speeches and one stupidly, outrageously over-the-top, deliriously enjoyable rant at Janeane Garofalo’s whinging techie. If this is Kiefer’s last gruff gurn as Jack Bauer, well, he’s done himself proud. Have a couple of extra stars.
This 24 episode contains mild swear words and violence.
