In the shopping mall, when Jack enters the room before the ventilation room (through the food court), he kicks open the door. In the next shot, he is seen letting go of the door which has somehow changed its swinging angle to face the mall food court, where Jack came from. See more »


Lynn McGill: Jack, this is a direct order from the President. Now enter the correct code and let them release the gas. Now!

Scenes from a mall
10 May 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I have to point out how amusing it is to see Timothy Omundson playing a Russian terrorist. Not to discount the man's acting abilities, but this is Lassiter wielding a gun and barking orders. It'd kinda funny.

But the episode isn't all that humorous, with Jack going undercover as a software guy to track down the nerve gas - an effort that drags him into an attack on a shopping mall. Not the "Die Hard" scenarios at the airport from a few hours ago, but the guy still walks out a hero.
