24 Episode Recap: "11:00 PM-12:00 AM" Season 8, Episode 6

Another 24 baddie goes down, but this is only the eighth hour of a very long day, and the nuclear threat is far from over.

The hour starts off slow with some more of Walsh and Kevin-Ex's drama — which seems even less compelling after the recap clips ended on Jack with a bag over his head. Unsurprisingly, Kevin and his (still-unnamed?) buddy want to keep using Walsh as their "golden goose," likely helping them score more seized drug money. I think Walsh and her suddenly reappearing Southern accent are the only ones who didn't see that one coming.

Just when Hastings starts grilling Walsh about where she keeps disappearing to for some reason, Chloe (uncharacteristically) decides to step in and cover for her. And she doesn't have a sharp retort for anyone during the whole conversation!

When we finally get back to Jack, it seems he and Papa Bazhaev's relationship has gotten off on the wrong foot. Bazhaev is immediately suspicious of how Jack knows he has the nuclear rods — and when Jack won't give up his employers' names (maybe because they begin with the initials C, T and U), it's time to head back to the torture well once again.

Jack has bought his "employers" some time, at least, as Bazhaev decides to halt the sale of the nukes until he figures out who Jack is working for. Farhad H. — who has apparently been hiding out at the Bazhaevs' crib — isn't pleased, and attempts to dress Papa B. down for the botched assassination of his brother. All that gets him is a gun to the head and a boot to the behind, though, courtesy of Josef B.

Papa Bazhaev isn't going to be too happy when he finds out how that interrogation's going either. Thankfully, there's just a little bit of torture (only on 24 could you consider that a positive), before Jack knocks Bazhaev's man out using only his feet of fury. And then he's on the move, scampering like a monkey up the pipes he's handcuffed to, freeing himself, and then jumping down just in time to take on his awakening interrogator for round two.

Once Jack puts the man down for the count — again using those deadly feet — he gets hold of a gun and heads out to wreak havoc on the Bazhaev compound. The first order of business is cutting the power, followed by some more minion-killing. From this one, he procures a cell phone and uses it to call Chloe for a trace on his location.

Then it's time for an excellent, though too-brief, gun battle in a surprisingly well-appointed underground dining room. It's Bazhaev's high-powered shotgun to Jack's machine gun, and you can guess who wins this one. Though Jack catches some pellets to the shoulder, it's his literal turning of the tables that knocks the big boss unconscious.

Once CTU officers roll in and cuff him (awfully quick, it seems, for this to have occurred in real time...), Papa B. gets surprisingly emotional, crying about how he shot his own son "like a sick dog." He breaks down awful quickly, too, once Jack starts a brief interrogation, offering to give up the location of the rods in exchange for immunity. And even more surprisingly, Hastings and President Taylor immediately go for the deal.

We've got quite a few hours left in this day, though, so of course it's not all that simple. When Ortiz and his team descend on the supposed location of the nuclear material, all they find are some dead guards, traces of radiation and a mysterious necklace — well, mysterious for those two minutes until Papa B. IDs that gold cross as his surviving son's.

Seems that Josef has decided to step up and take charge of the operation himself, and he's already on his way to delivering Farhad's rods.

Elsewhere in the Hassan family, El Presidente is going even further off the deep end into paranoid delusion. When Omar's daughter tries to convince him that he's behaving irrationally, and that Tarin was not working against him, she also makes the mistake of confessing that they've been in love for over a year. Filtered through his newfound everyone-is-against-me mindset, Hassan sees their whole relationship as a ploy for Tarin to get close enough to kill him, and forbids Kayla from ever seeing him again. At this rate, Hassan will probably be saving his fingernails and bottling his urine in no time.

Stray Observations:

  • Seems like motherhood may have softened Chloe up a bit. First she covers for Walsh, and then she's all sensitive and sisterly toward Renee after she's brought into CTU for debriefing. Feels a little out of character, but it's nice to see Chloe used for more than just sarcastic comic relief.
  • OK, where the heck did Ortiz's New Yawk accent come from? During his mid-episode heart-to-heart with Walsh, he suddenly goes all Freddy from the Block. Maybe I just didn't pick up on it earlier, but I guess he's from Brooklyn now?
  • I enjoyed this pithy exchange between Papa B. and Jack. Bazhaev: "I knew you were a cop. I should have trusted my instincts and killed you on the spot." Jack: "Well, you can add it to your list of regrets." I like that Jack's just a little less deadly serious this season — makes saving the world a bit more fun.

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.
