WOW! What a surprise ending! I was sitting there watching thinking this episode might be a drag as well, until the last 20 minutes or so. Then it was, hmmm... what's going on. I actually guessed it, but we'll get to that in a minute.
So, they had threatened Lisa Miller with treason and the only way to save herself was to call Bishop and ask to come back over. She was supposed to get there and leave the room to give him time to download her PDA so he could call the Russians about the fake transcripts that they captured Chen, so the Russians would call off the strike, but Bishop wouldn't let her clean up in the bathroom. Instead, she had another "chore" to fulfill for him.
Milo thinks Nadia likes Doyle. Chloe whines to Morris that she can't believe he broke up with her. Marilyn tells Jack she'll always be there for him... how many love stories in this thing??
Doyle goes to the warehouse to find Chen, but all they find are a bunch of empty weapon boxes. Nadia has Chloe doing a reverse feed of the images to see where they can spot Chen's cars. They find them, and they're about 6 blocks from CTU.
Chen's men penetrate CTU through the sewer. They gather everyone together and ask who the director of CTU is. Nadia is a courage and doesn't stand up. She finally decides to start to stand, very very very slowly, and then Milo steps forward saying he is the director. Bye Bye Milo with one shot to the head! I guess Nadia can like Ricky if she wants to now.
With Chen's men running around killing everyone, Jack was also running around, single-handedly killing most of Chen's men. The men find Josh and Marilyn and it turns out, they were looking for Josh all along!! What?? Jack runs in and kills those men and they run and try to escape through the ventilation system. Only Josh got through the fan before Jack and Marilyn were stopped. They got on the PA system and told Josh that if he didn't present himself, they would kill his mother. Of course, he comes crawling out of the tunnel...
The news is reported to Chen who then reports to, none other than, and this is what I guessed... Jack's father!!! Yes, Jack's father was the person contacted to fix the component for the nukes. Apparently, he would only do it if they rescued Josh from CTU. Jack was also the one who gave Chen's men all the security information in order to break through CTU's security and phone lines and everything.
I told you it was a surprise ending with excitement for the last 20 minutes. I assumed the final would be a 2 hour season finale, but apparently not. The previews looked decent with Bishop looking all beat up and then attacking Lisa...
I don't recall any good quotes. However, I liked the scene where Lisa is looking all nervous and says she doesn't think she could go to Bishop and pretend everything's ok, and Daniels said it shouldn't be a problem since she had been lying to him all this time.
