Did You Know?


Tony's Chicago Cubs coffee mug is one of the only props to stay on the set after the bomb blast that took place at the conclusion of the previous episode. This wasn't a conscious plan - in fact, it was initially marked for destruction. A crew member tossed the mug into the air to shatter it on impact, but it got stuck in some overhead lighting. After it was retrieved, a collective decision was made that the mug was indestructible. Tony is seen sipping from it even much later in the series. See more »


As Eric Rayburn walks in to meet with President Palmer near the end of the episode, a crew member is clearly reflected in the glass. See more »

Death and Destruction
21 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

How can an episode be more intense than the previous one. Here it is. Jack must pull out all the stops to get his guy to admit who hired him. George Mason is dying from ingesting Plutonium and is trying to make his last moments significant. The CTU is in shambles and many have died. Kim, in her reckless way, has to confront the monster who has abused his wife and child and is, herself, being sought as the abuser. There's even more, but will be dealt with later. The mystery woman at the end is revealed to be a deadly adversary.
