24 Episode Recap: "1:00 P.M.-2:00 P.M." Season 7, Episode 4

As we all expected, Renee Walker isn't dead — or rather, she was dead, but only for a minute or two. It was long enough to make things interesting, but not so long that Chloe and Bill can't pinpoint her location and dig the FBI agent out of her makeshift grave. So Renee does indeed die — hence the silent clock that had us all debating last week — until, Pulp Fiction-style, Bill brings her back with a needle of adrenaline straight to the heart.

Meanwhile, Emmerson has caught on to Jack and Tony's game — or at least that there is some kind of game afoot — but he wrongly assumes it's one played for diamonds, not innocent lives. Being a terrorist, he takes Jack hostage and demands answers from Tony at gunpoint. Almeida's answer is two well-aimed gunshots, and with that, another 24 villain goes down.

But this season's real madman, General Dubaku, is still on the loose, and he soon makes his presence felt again in Washington. In a chilling phone call, he instructs President Taylor to, "Go to the window. Look to the southwest, Madame President. See what you have done."

What he has done is cause a collision between two passenger planes (no mere test run this time) and taken at least 250 lives. Dubaku promises 10,000 more will die if U.S. forces don't withdraw from Sengala's borders, leaving Taylor little choice, it would seem. But despite fervent objections from her cabinet, the new President is not backing down. "We're in for some tough times ahead," she warns her advisors. "Let's make sure we're ready."

On returning to still-frozen first gentleman Henry Taylor, we veer back into horror/thriller territory. Secret Service Agent Brian Gedge (Warren Kole) is still continuing his preparations (he's nothing if not thorough) for murder with his creepy, plastic-sleeved hands.

But first there's the issue of Samantha Roth, who returns home to find Taylor sitting paralyzed on her couch, trying desperately to warn of the imminent danger. It's all to no avail, though, and Gedge moves swiftly in for the kill, stabbing Roth until she's sent off to join the many, many others in 24 heaven.

Taylor himself fares better: Just as Gedge is rigging up a noose from the rafters to finish the job, the paralytic agent suddenly wears off. Following a struggle and a crash to the loft's floor, the first gentleman chokes the pretty-boy killer to death. I've gotta admit, this plotline has gotten a whole lot more interesting over the last couple episodes.

As Hour 6 closes, Dubaku is targeting a Kidron, OH, chemical plant that, if destroyed, could cause nearly 20,000 deaths. And judging by the previews, it looks like Jack & Co. will be staging an action-packed play to save that unfortunate town next week. Can't wait.

Stray Observations:

• Office politics at the FBI have yet to get interesting. Janis is still kinda whiney, but in a boring way; Larry keeps mooning over Renee, but it seems like he should just pull himself together and be the boss.
• Following her resurrection, Jack asks Renee if she's "OK," and her response is appropriately deadpan: "What do you think, Jack? You shot me and buried me alive."
• Another priceless exchange, this one as Chloe prepares to implant a transmitter in former PM Matobo's tooth. Matobo: "Are you with the FBI?" Chloe: "No, I'm a stay-at-home mom."

Premise: An exciting and edgy real-time action series about U.S. counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer trying to save his country from foreign and domestic enemies in the course of 24 grueling hours (with each hour a separate episode). The series took a great concept and executed it superbly, juggling taut storylines with forceful performances and a stylish, gritty look. Which made it easier to forgive some of the more foolish and implausible subplots, many involving Jack's crisis-magnet daughter, Kim.
