24 Day 8 10AM-11AM S08E19 (Fox)

Cast of 24 Day 8, image via Wikipedia

After a somewhat lukewarm and disappointing season 7, 24 is back with another season. It’s been a while since we saw Jack Bauer and it looks like he’s fully recovered from his ordeal from the end of last season.

Jack is living it up with his family. He’s fully reconciled with Kim and her husband and he’s spending time with his granddaughter Terri, who looks like she’s about 4. One of the biggest mistakes of the screenwriters in the last season was coming up with a fictional African country. It’s really bad that they did this. They’ve done it again with this season. This season features an Islamic republic named Kamistan. WTF you imbeciles? Didn’t you guys learn anything from last season?

This is why Spooks is so much more entertaining because it’s more realistic. I’m kind of annoyed that they’ve done it again this time around. Still, it’s good to see Jack at it again. There was another thing that kind of annoyed me. Chloe is having trouble with the new CTU systems. She’s been back a month and has trouble learning them. It’s really surprising and doesn’t make much sense, since Chloe has always been the über-analyst of this season.

There are some interesting additions in the cast. Katee Sackhoff is most intriguing. She plays another analyst, who’s involved with an agent named Cole.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

This season of 24 isn’t bad. I’m entertained. It’s kind of funny how Jack gets roped into things once more. President Taylor isn’t so annoying anymore. Maybe that’s because we see less of her. I did enjoy how she made it clear to Hassan that if a bomb detonates on US soil, she will have to retaliate.

Chloe tries to talk with Jack. 2 Air Force choppers arrive to force him back to CTU. He lands on a helipad on the Cooper Building. They tell the NYPD. They are too late. Jack has been lost in the crowd in NYC. That serves them right. Chloe sends Ortiz in with the NYPD to track down Jack.

Kainen tells Taylor that if this gets out this might be grounds for impeachment and a criminal indictment. She asks Kainen to start preparing a statement that the US is withdrawing from these talks. She meets with Charles a few minutes later. He tells her to classify Walsh as an enemy combatant and incarcerate in a private facility. He mentions torture. This would means that the evidence wouldn’t become public record. If it would become public record, her presidency would be over.

Taylor calls Chloe. She wants Walsh transferred to a safe house via a private security firm.

Meanwhile, Jack has bought a bunch of phones. He calls Chloe. He wants to be in a room with Walsh. Chloe tells Jack that Walsh is being transferred out via a private security firm. Jack calls Michael Madsen. He’s playing Jim. He wants weapons and tech from him. He’s calling in a favour.

The private security team arrives at CTU. The guy in charge wants to get rid of Walsh after they finished interrogating her.

Chloe takes Bledsoe’s phone to look at the presidential order. She inserts a flash drive into it and downloads something. Walsh begs not to be taken away. They will kill her. Chloe has got the address where they are taking her. She doesn’t give the info to Jack. She talks it over with Ortiz. She is under presidential orders so she cannot give him the info. She authorizes a sting op to capture Jack.

Jack phones Chloe. She tries to dissuade him but he doesn’t relent. It’s a sting op. They are funnelling to another location, not the one where Walsh is.

Taylor tells Kainen that she isn’t making the speech and not to withdraw from the peace conference. She tells him what she has planned with Walsh. He knows that Logan is behind this. Kainen says that he will resign for health reasons. Kainen goes to see Logan.

Jack arrives on site. He gets the upper hand on Ortiz and his men. He knows Chloe. He has Cole call her and tell her that Jack is in custody. He tells Ortiz that he is here because of him. That’s the only reason why he risked this. He manages to convince him to go along with his plan.

Walsh is about to get tortured. They start with water and a towel.
