24 "Day 8: 9:00pm-10:00pm" Review

Jack Bauer and Renee "Screw Loose" Walker continued to wreck havoc on New York City in pursuit of the Red Square faction. Ziya, the poor Russian mob contact who lost his thumb (not his hand) to Renee's circular saw last episode, was able to lead Renee to the infamous Vladimir. Turns out Vlad developed an obsession with Renee was she was undercover. And by "obsession" I mean "penchant to beat and rape her." Okay, the rape part wasn't explicit, but Vlad asked her if she had Hepatitis C (as a possible explanation for why she looked so shitty) and the dots connected pretty clearly on that one, I think. Vlad still didn't trust her, though, so he threw she and Ziya into his trunk and drove them off to an isolated location (as isolated as one can find in New York, I suppose) to shoot them. Jack, meanwhile, freaked out when he realized that he was tailing a decoy vehicle and flipped the World's Most Badass U-Turn in the middle of the road in order to rescue his slightly deranged soulmate. Seems Ziya was really the one who needed rescuing (poor guy got his thumb sawed off and a bullet blown into his skull within a span of about two hours - bad times, eh?), as Renee was able to save her own life with an unnervingly somber plea for Vlad to kill her. Convinced that she wasn't trying to screw him over, Vlad agreed to meet with Renee's buyer and Jack breathed a sigh of relief that his favorite redhead didn't have her brains splattered around the Lower East Side. We'll come back to that in a minute.
