Welcome to the 24 thread for Day 8: 3:00PM to 4:00PM. This is the place for episode previews and reviews of the whole hour.

Who hopes you'll settle into Morty's 24 Forum because Jack is in NYC and this could be his worst day of all...

There were a lot of classic 24 moments, gratuitous violence such as Jack biting off Tipler's ear to give Chloe time to escape, the fake to the left with the data card having a message intended for President Taylor (who else thought he was recording that for Kim?), Chloe's trembling lip, the CTU operative who was just following orders from someone politically powerful but not actually in charge, to the lone wolf setting out for survival in the wilderness.

There were so many fake-outs, Jack switching targets (we initially were led to believe he was going after the courtyard, not taking the shot when he had the chance, his last ditch effort to escape his captors before Presidential intervention (and Kudos to Chloe & Arlo for their last minute wizardry of tapping into the commando's sat phone through the drone).

When Taylor did not correct Logan on his tacit approval of his assassination plan inferred from her silence, I was no longer sure she would do the right thing in the end. Even when she teased us by telling Dalia the truth, she turned around with a shocking threat and blackmail to nuke nowheristan. How far she had fallen from the paragon of virtue during Day 7. And Kudos to Tiny Tim for taking the initiative to try and secure Jack's release. But really, if this country was so small, why was this peace treaty so significant?

And an inside joke. Jack's message to Chloe at the end was more true than most viewers realize. Chloe was not intended to be the only character besides Jack to keep surviving. She has grown as a character and as she did her fan base followed, turning into an enduring if not twisted and co-dependent relationship. We all knew (well, I did) that this would come down to a showdown between Jack and Chloe in the end and it was her concience that became Jack's guide. Give a little whistle, Chloe, you earned a day off.

Jack, however, is not so lucky. Stabbed, shot, beaten (not necessarily in that order or singularly), ready and relieved to finally die, Jack is instead alone in the big city with the full weight of might of two supernations after him. No problem, but if he can find a way out of the country, he had best pick a country to hide in better than the one used to hide from the Senate during the 2 hour TV movie tweener before Day 7. May I suggest the recuperating powers of the tropics? Somewhere there is a benevolent dictator who owes him a favor.

Who thinks the only thing missing from the season was a salivating Vice President kept in the dark but just waiting for the opportunity to take down the only barrier between him and the ultimate power...

Much about the eighth and final season of 24 may have tried your patience — Dana Walsh, President Taylor’s tap dance on the Constitution, Jack’s attraction to the once hard-hearted, now all-gooey-inside Renee. Fortunately, Executive Producer Howard Gordon — like Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer — is a thick-skinned man who knows what he wants and makes no apologies. Here, the veteran writer who’s been on the show since the beginning talks about preparing for the show’s series finale, why he left some characters on the cutting room floor this season (sorry, Aaron Pierce and Tony Almeida!) and how the finale will tee up the 24 movie. EW's enlightening Interview:

Who wonders where they thought the day would take Jack if President Taylor was not instrumental to the plot...
