24, Day 4: 4:00pm-5:00pm

A transition episode. It was basically the ending of last episode and the begining of the next one, which normally wouldn't make for a good show, but because this is 24, it's still very worth watching. It has a lot of content, but still feels incomplete somehow. Anyway, here's how it went down.

Jack faces off with Berus' father, kicks some ass, but then Berus kills him. Fine, its all good, because Berus is safe, and his mom will talk. She doesn't have much to say, it turns out, she just knows the location of where they got their mission information. Not a whole lot to go on, but just enough to keep the plot moving, so I accept it.

Her info leads to a building where it appears the terrorists planned their strike. Back at CTU, they learn that the owner of the building is complicated, but at least partially owned by Audrey's husband, whether he's aware of it is another story. This leads to an incredibly dumb scene where Audrey thinks she can stall him before Jack gets there to interrogate him. I'm really hating this Audrey chick. Anyway, Jack shows up and punches him in the face, and the show ends.

Obviously, that's not the only thing that happens in the show, but thats all that involves Jack. What else happens? There's a plot involving Curtis (who I originally called black Tony) leads talk soup girl to where she thinks white terrorist kept his computer files. This is ultimately meaningless, because some nondescript terrorists show up under the command of some American dude and they kill talk soup girl. Curtis talks tough, but they knock him out for an interrogation next episode.

Tony gets reinstated really fast, basically erasing last seasons's "traitor" plot, and he gets to head up the interrogations of Berus and his mother. It seems that Tony's story and the Araz family's are wrapping up. I really hope the writers figure out what to do with Tony that doesn't push him to the background or end up with him getting killed. I kinda liked him as a partner for Jack.

All in all, not the best episode, but reasonably good. More of a pallette cleanser for next episode.

Tomorrow I'll post last week's comic reviews, just in time for Wednesday's comic reviews.
