On the offensive
10 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Jack's officially out in the open, but this is largely a low-key episode as Bauer tracks down the men responsible and CTU struggles to put the pieces together. Sneaking into David Palmer's apartment building (which is crawling with Feds) is the exciting part while the rest of the episode is busy setting up the next. Still, it's a testament to the writers that Jack can go from having a dramatic showdown with Wayne Palmer to getting himself caught right up into a "Die Hard" situation at the airport.
