It’s about Ogdamned time someone shot that psychotic bitch. I was just hoping Kim would be the one to do it.
I mean, I loved Nina as a character. Deliciously evil and terribly sexy. But seriously, after having her in custody, what, three times now? and every time she gets loose and kills more people, I say just shoot her already.
I’m sorry, but this entire episode was utterly ruined by FOX’s ‘Next on FOX!!’ promo just before the show…the idiots actually showed Nina and Kim holding each other at gunpoint. Wasn’t a whole lot of suspense knowing through the entire thing that Nina would somehow escape her interrogation and wind up in that basement room.
And, unless I’m mistaken, the woman interrogating Jack was none other than Vasquez from ‘Aliens.’
BEAUTIFUL. I’ve been waiting all season for Badass Jack to return…the same Jack that shot the child-molester/informant and told George to “Get me a hacksaw.” And there he was… “No, you don’t.” BLAM BLAM BLAM!
Best episode this season.
Now we’ll NEVER know what Jack whispered to Nina last season that frightened her so much!
Unfortunately I was chatting online with my best friend about something serious while 24 was on so I only half caught the show, but luckily I taped it. Now I gotta go back and watch the whole thing over again. Luckily it seems like this one will be worth watching twice.
Why would Nina try to kill herself in the interregation room anyway? At first I thought she was just trying to keep herself from giving information, but she has no loyalties so why worry about that. Maybe she wanted to escape, but hell, she just ripped her jugular…that’s a bit of a gamble.
So, when is the Prez going to call Jack and ask him to Nina his Sherry problem?
Yeah, but Kim can’t kill Nina, for the simple reason that Kim hesitates about shooting people. Especially shooting people in cold blood. In a gun battle, Nina has to shoot Kim because Nina is a supervillain and Kim isn’t a superhero.
Amen. Normally when I’m watching TV and a 24 commercial comes on, I literally start rocking back and forth with my hands over my ears so I don’t hear anything, but I was at a friends’ place this weekend watching something and a preview came on. I didn’t want them all to think I was completely loony, so I grit my teeth and watched it. Grr. Then the preview at the end of AI. I hate24 previews!
As for Kim shooting Nina- I really think she should’ve shot her in the leg or something, just to prevent Nina from shooting her first. It really would’ve balanced out the “Fuck! Why are you wandering off alone when Nina Goddamn Myers is loose and probably after you?!” I’m OK with Jack doing the deed.
Yeah, Bad-ass Jack is back!! That’s why we watch this show.
A question: Was Nina hinting that she and Tony had an affair, too? I didn’t see all of the 1st season, but I still don’t think that ever happened. If that’s not what she was talking about, then what what did she mean?
It’s good to see that Nina is gone. I’m OK with having the same ol’ hero all the time, but no the same ol’ villain. BTW, does anyone think Nina looks like an older Courtney Cox?
And I have no sympathy for the prez. You make a deal with the devil and there will be hell to pay.
I tried to post here as soon as the ep ended and the board was down… and my girlfriend didn’t see it, so I couldn’t tell her, or do what I wanted which was jump up and down screaming. Well, I can do it here.
I enjoyed that a great deal. I haven’t seen the Sopranos in a while, sadly, so I’ve missed that “someone I hate on a TV show whacked” feeling.
She was enjoyably evil in that last episode: Tony asking her why she does all the stuff she’s done, and she just kind of grins and looks away. Made me think of a carnivorous lizard sunning itself on a rock. Good stuff, and I can see why people wanted it to be Kim, but Jack was the one who should’ve killed her. Made my night.
Kim sure doesn’t seem cut out to be a CTU agent, though. Jeez.
Not hinting… reminding. I forget the timeline, but coming into seaon one, Nina had had an affair with the married-at-the-time JAck, and the single-at-the-time Tony. Michelle wasn’t around in season one.
Top 10 “Badass” Jack Bauer moments in 24:
1)“Get me a hacksaw.” Brilliant. One of the best moments I’ve ever seen on television.
2)“No, you don’t.” Finally someone put that bitch out of our misery.
3)Thumbs-up: early in the first season, I think episode one if I am not mistaken, Jack kills one of the assassins who had killed his boss and, to be able to ID him, CUTS OFF HIS FUCKING THUMB! I knew right then that 24 was not going to be your run-of-the-mill TV show…
4)“BANG!” When Jack showed up in the limo and the bad guy opened fire on him through the bulletproof glass and Jack didn’t flinch. Major stones.
5)The climatic shoot-out with the Drazens at the end of season one. Beautifully choreographed, one of the best shootouts ever shown on a TV show.
6)“Click.” Pulling the trigger on Chase. The only thing bringing it down in stature is that we’ve come to EXPECT that sort of ruthlessness from Bauer.
7)The running-up-the-wall-breaking-the-bad-guy’s-neck maneuver from the end of season two.
8)The Smile. When Jack informed Nina that her worm had been disabled and she was about to land in L.A. First time I remember seeing him smile the whole series. And it was scarier than a gun pointing at you.
9)At the climax of season two, when Jack took out the sniper and started picking off the bad guys with the rifle to save Sherry.
10)Putting a knock-out dart into George Mason and then blackmailing him into doing things Jack’s way in season one.
