Review: '24' - '9:00PM-10:00PM' Season 8, Episode 6

Oh, snap. The Russians may have bought Renee's cover, but that doesn't mean she's out of danger. Just the opposite, especially given the fact that she's a loose cannon and doesn't seem to care whether she lives or dies at this point. Or maybe that's not necessarily true.

At the beginning of this episode, I wrote in my notes that you just know the relationship she once had with Vladimir will come crashing down eventually. And by the time I got done writing that note, it did. Vlad wants more, and even apologized for treating her badly and trying to rape her one night long ago. "It's good to see you," he said. "You're going to make me start losing sleep again ... you want this just as much as I do."

But Renee is having none of it, which makes me think she's not as tough as she makes herself out to be. If she was, she wouldn't mind cozying up to Vlad in order to stay undercover and keep the mission on track. "I'm going dark," she tells Jack, and takes her bug out. It's really interesting to see the role switch between Jack and Renee. Usually he's the live wire, but now he's in the position of having to look after her.

And that Vlad is some catch, eh? "Look, I was just trying to make things right. You don't have to be such a bitch about it." Way to get the girl. The whole thing is a house of cards.
