Poor Kim
4 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jack is taken hostage and is being held by Drazen and the boys. As is always the case, he comes within a half second of his death about six times. He must use whatever he can drum up to save himself. Meanwhile, Kimberly has a serious thing in her jail cell. One thing I continue to wonder is, how do the bad guys always know where she is? Also, Palmer is making goo goo eyes at his speech writer. I suppose this is going to create conflict in the future.
