Has anyone noticed the change in tone the music has undergone the past few episodes? During the action sequences, the operatic tone has been traded for one that resembles a techno James Bond mix. Not since the first episode have they used music that isn’t operatic thriller material, so the change comes across as slightly refreshing, if not one I hope is temporary.
Question of the week: Was Jack right to exchange the evidence for Audrey’s life? The image of Audrey standing between Jack and Henderson, barely able to speak as she quickly bleeds to death, was gruesome and haunting even by 24's standards. Audrey pleads with Jack to ignore her and focus on the evidence, but he relents to Henderson’s demands and surrenders the one thing that could expose Logan for the traitor he is.
Often times, 24's intense moments are born out of the character’s need to make devastating decisions in the blink of an eye, and this was one of the hardest yet. While we may be in the final stretch, there are still seven hours left, and a lot can happen in Jack Bauer’s day.
