Buck Reviews 24: Day 7, 4:00 AM - 5:00 AM

Slow episode? Short review! Enjoy.






• I am really enjoying the character scenes this season, like the one we just had between Jack and Chloe. Why did he think she shouldn't know about his exposure? He's one of the few friends from the old days she has left.
• Kind of a slow episode so far...seems like we're just getting our players in position for the final showdown.
• Olivia's going to fiddle while the Taylor administration burns.
• The WitSec guy is the guy from the Bob Evans commercials!
• Ah, racial profiling. With special guest Bug from Crossing Jordan!
• Hey, Olivia has a few scruples after all.
• You can fancy up your computer trickery all you like, you won't hide from Chloe O'Brien.
• Well, so much for Hodges. Looks like Olivia didn't back out in time. But hey, she didn't actually pay for it, so free assassination! Silver lining kids, silver lining.


Thoughts:
Well, that was uneventful, wasn't it? It's a shame to have a "setting the stage" episode this late in the game, but hopefully it will be worth it. Three hours left to stop Tony and the Cabal. My money's on a crazy cliff-hanger next week that's resolved in the first half of the finale, with the final hour being a slower, more coda-esque bit.
