24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY episode 9 7pm-8pm review

It's another high flying installment as Jack Bauer delivers once again. Brad Wilson catches us up with his review 24: Live Another Day episode 9 7pm to 8pm.

This season of 24 is locked in and just cruising higher and higher. What a spectacular episode that was! I have to admit, I’m slightly disappointed Heller didn’t really die. I was really curious to see how that storyline would’ve played out. But, he’s alive and that’s a good thing. The fact Jack was able to save the President’s life has really put him ahead of Mark in the Audrey race. Sure, Mark did what the president wanted, but Audrey knows what’s up. I have a small, growing feeling they might live happily every after because of the President’s pardon, but then I remember Mark and the Russians (worst 80s band name ever?), and that just annoys me. Why can’t Jack just be happy?

You’ve got to hand it to Margot Al-Harazi. She was going to keep her word. Good for her. Sadly, she was duped and tried to exact her vengeance anyway, which leads to a very exciting open to the show with all the elements that make 24 so amazing: action, suspense, twists, death, last minute heroics and, as Jack put it to President Heller, Jack Bauer doing what he knows how to do. 

Jack is quarterbacking the whole thing and from a chopper, no less. He’s got both British and American agencies, plus Chloe, following his orders, like a boss! It’s refreshing to have an episode where everyone just listens to Jack! Did you see what the result was? The President is alive, five drones were destroyed, the two remaining terror threats were eliminated (in awesome style), and Jack guided the missile into the water, saving millions of innocent lives. I mean, come on! Why is he not the Secretary of Defense? It just makes sense, people.

Margot was defiant to the end too, even pulling a gun on her son. At least she had some balls. Also, can we talk about Jack McGeyvering whatever that was into a rappelling rope? That was awesome! Also, I thought him pulling Ian out the window was pretty sweet, but little did I know what was coming. Wow. He just tossed Margot out like it was nothing. Cold blooded! 

In the midst of all this, Jordan Reed’s body is discovered. The trajectory of the rest of the season is now plotted out. Navarro has been found out and Jack is giving chase. Cross wants the override device, which we discover can basically hack any defense system out there, and that’s not good. I don’t know where Chloe gets off bailing on Jack for Cross, but I hope she gets what’s coming to her. I know, we all love Chloe and her quirks, but if you throw in with Adrian Cross over Jack Bauer, you lose my sympathies. 

Judging by the previews for next week, this show is about to get better. I won’t discuss what I saw; I’ll save it for next week. But wow, I can’t wait!
