A weak and oddly disconnected episode from the rest of the season
10 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not gonna lie, this is not the most engrossing hour of 24. This episode has an action scene at the end where it doesn't feel like the plot isn't moving toward. Grendenko has nukes being fitted into three mission drones to deliver toward different targets.

With the plot being shifted from Fayed to Grendenko, it's writers admitting that the former's villainy isn't working as well they hoped. Yet, in doing so, it basically jettisons about 12 episodes of plot and background.

For all its faults (and there were many), the terrorism siege plot and the resulting racism against the Muslim community was easily the most well thought out and executed plot-line featured on the show in some time. It had purpose and cause. Fayed and his terrorist cell successfully detonated a nuclear bomb on U.S. soil, as well as mini strikes against population centers around the country in the months before Day 6.

Grendenko wants revenge because the Cold War didn't result in nuclear war between the United States and Russia. Isn't that just dull as dish soap?

Elsewhere in the episode, Markov (John Noble) successfully traps Jack in the Russian Embassy, cutting communications to the outside, after he successfully extracted Gredenko's location from him during interrogation. Throughout the episode, Jack repeatedly attempts to relay Gredenko's location to CTU before he launch the drone. Buchanan preps for an assault on the consulate, knowing it can spark an international incident. Logan volunteers to see Former First Lady Martha Logan (Jean Smart) because she can quell the consequences with Russian President Yuri Suvarov (Nick Jameson).

This is the show at its worst: only concerned about what's on front of the writers during any current week. Remember early in season two when then-President David Palmer warmed a middle eastern prime minister that if a nuclear bomb detonated in Los Angeles, it would result in a counter military strike and war against them? And then they followed up on it? That was the writers planning for an endgame early and then executing it.

The show is an utter mess because it hasn't followed up successful terrorist attacks with virulent mixtures of racism and chaos in any satisfying fashion. The nuclear strike in episode four might as well be as far away as the Arctic Circle in importance because that's how important it feels to the writers. Disappointing.
