Kiefer Sutherland: Jack Bauer
Jack interrogates Tony’s man (with Renee Walker’s blessing) to try and find Tony. Though they hit a stumbling block, Jack instinctively knows in his heart of hearts that it’s nothing that shouting at Chloe and Janice can’t fix.
This is the first completely duff episode of this seventh season and, sadly, it appears to set up a double-duff final double episode that looks like it is going to be awful as Jack has SPOILER his daughter’s life used as a hold over him (that’s not really a spoiler since it’s horribly telegraphed from early in the episode if you’ve ever watched, well, television before). Unfortunately, the audience couldn’t care less about Elisha Cuthbert and are wondering why Jack doesn’t communicate with his colleagues by simply writing on something. Perhaps, with all their mobiles phones and ear-pieces and SHOUTING, they’ve forgotten how to. As has previously been the case with 24, when the writers run out of ideas, they resort to violence and torture and this is also the most violent episode of this season.
This 24 episode contains very strong melee and interrogation violence.
