Well... That was certainly a fine return to form after watching Jack sit in a room for an hour.

And of course Kate's thinking, "Jesus Christ, I've only been Jack's sidekick for 30 minutes AND I'M ALREADY GETTING FUCKING TORTURED!"

And ladies and gentlemen, we have our mole!

^ I think this may be a backdoor series for 24:Kate.

I would watch that in a heartbeat. Of all the new characters, I like her the best.

Is there something in the 24 manifesto that says there has to be a mole every season. I almost get a wash rinse repeat when it comes to this show, much more than any other show I see. I think we've had all the 24 Troupes already, with Navarro being outed as a Mole being the last one. It's really interesting how repetitive this show is, even with a 4 year hiatus.

Every season has recycled the same troupes over and over again, just switching up the order.

Great episode! The inevitable mole reveal was unwhelming and unnecessary though. I assume he was talking to Catelyn Stark; sounded like her accent.

I was thinking the same thing while watching. Kiefer has already said that he doesn't plan on doing more 24 after this (though of course for the right price he may change his mind). I think they are setting it up to have Kate take over 24 if Fox wishes to renew the show.

I don't think there could be any 24 without Kiefer or Jack Bauer. Hey Yvonne/Kate is doing a good job and was pretty bad-ass in this episode but, still, is no Jack Bauer.

If Kiefer doesn't want to do Jack anymore after this I'm fine with that as until the announcement of this season I didn't think we'd ever get Jack again once the movie talks fell apart. So, fine.

But I don't really think Kate could carry a season of 24 like Jack does.

It sounded more like Chole's buddy Adrian Cross.

Well she carried Chuck for however many years. She could certainly pull off FemJack. Actually, I'm reminded of Mass Effect and playing as Shepard, and being all badass and cool, then rerolling as FemShep and everything being like ten times as cool. I'd watch.

The Mole reveal was sooooo lazy. My eyes couldn't have rolled any farther up into my head. Unless it's a double bluff and StationBratt turns out to be working some angle that required Kate's husband to be scapegoated...nah! He's just a weaselly piece of rat filth, just like he's seemed from the get.

I did love the Brit PM deciding to jump into the middle of an American op, about which he knows nothing, without telling the Americans anything, because his pretty assistant/mistress bats her eyes at him.

Hey, lets knock out this sniper covering the inside of the target building because he's clearly working for the badguys who own the building and not CIA overwatch... oh, wait. I get it, he's armed and you don't know him, but then they follow up with putting eyes on a known American agent the sniper was covering being tortured, shrug, and walk away.

They trigger a gun battle with like a dozen heavily armed men with drywall and wooden packing crates as cover? Brilliant move, gents. What was more shocking was that several of them actually get shot by rounds penetrating said cover! On TV!

Everything Jack and Kate did was awesome, though, so not a complete loss, all told.

On the other end, the villain ups the stupid ante having her unstable, injured daughter go try and murder her sister-in-law and niece despite their clearly having no clue about anything going on.

Thankfully, the previews for the next episode spoiled THE ENTIRE EPISODE, beginning to end, beat for beat. Much appreciated. I won't be an asshole and post what I saw in case others were smart enough to not watch them and/or may be tempted to read through spoiler tags, but for fucks sake, it doesn't make people want to watch when you set up tension in the preview...and then immediately relieve it - three times over what is clearly the act structure of the entire episode! WTF, Fox?

Eh, to be fair it is *his* country, Any actions being taken by the American personnel on the behalf of the President was simply a courtesy being extended by the PM. But he's under no real obligation to let these Americans muck about in his country doing whatever. Still, it's odd he made the move without knowing too much on the plan of those carrying out the operation.

I never watch episode previews. They always spoil everything.
