Dessler Delivers; Jack & Paul Battle It Out
11 November 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

So as not to portray all Arabs, or Islamic people - whatever - as terrorists or sympathizers, the show's writers have two guys who fight on the side of Americans in this season's thriller. These guys entered the scene last week. They own a small sporting goods store near the Rockland Building, which the terrorists used as headquarters. That area is now under siege, all the electricity with a wide area is out, and escapees from a gunfight there - Jack Bauer and Paul Raines - are hiding out in the store. The Arabs have a choice, and they decide to help the "good guys." Now, it's the four of them verses the army of assassins hired by McLennan- Forster, who are coming to get some encrypted code Paul took off a computer before all the power went off.

Meanwhile, "Michelle Dessler" is reestablishing her power and authority at C.T.U. and slowly and begrudgingly is learning that her ex-husband is someone that should be running things, too. Everyone vouches so highly for him that he's climbing the ranks there fast. I like one thing Michelle did. Sarah, pouting and threatening because she was falsely accused of being the mole, is canned on the spot. Good move, Michelle. Time to get these petty, catty women (or men) out of that office!

The episode ends with a climactic shoot-out at the sporting goods store and and another revelation that another plan is in the works aimed at the President of the U.S. The suspense never ends!
