24: Season 7 Review

After a rather frustrating Season 6 and an extended delay due to the writers' strike, Season 7 of 24 finally premiered this January after being off the air for over 19 months (aside from November's TV movie, 24: Redemption). The season was hit and miss, featuring some fun action sequences and the return of some favorite characters, mixed with some lackluster plots and a number of unrealized new characters.
Day 7 marked the first full season of 24 not based in Los Angeles, instead moving Jack and company to Washington, D.C. The change of venue was a welcome one, and allowed for a convergence of the Jack Bauer and White House storylines for the first time, with Jack physically in the White House with the President.

A bunch of fan favorite 24 characters returned for Season 7, including Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Bill Buchanan (James Morrison), Aaron Pierce (Glenn Morshower) and the previously assumed dead Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard). While the story about how Tony is still alive requires one to suspend disbelief, in retrospect the reasoning for his actions throughout the season (seemingly on the side of the terrorists at one point and on the good guys's side at another) is fairly well thought out and understandable. If you're about to watch 24: Season 7 for the first time on DVD or Blu-ray, don't get too worked up about Tony's actions as you watch; just hold out until the end.
Perhaps the most surprising use of a returning character this season was Kim Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert). Kim's storylines in the past have been painful to watch at their worst and ham-handed at their best, but this season produced not just one good Kim-centered episode, but two. The first was a well-played, emotional reunion with her father, and the second was a sequence that somehow made Kim Bauer into a fearless action heroine -- something I thought I'd never see.

The strongest storyline of Season 7 featured one of the best villains 24 has ever had: Jonas Hodges. Introduced in 24: Redemption, Hodges is portrayed with an air of malevolent fun by Jon Voight and seems to stay one step ahead of everyone. Voight manages to take some pretty cheesy dialogue (e.g., "Stress is the fertilizer of creativity. Let's play some darts!") and turn the lines into a very fun performance. Hodges ends up being more of a Bond villain than a 24 villain -- over the top at times, but creative and willing to stop at nothing to execute his plan.

A number of other characters that were introduced in 24: Redemption also became key players in Day 7, but none ended up being as fun to watch as Hodges. The White House intrigue this season centered around President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones), her husband Henry (Colm Feore) and their daughter Olivia (Sprague Grayden). While First Husband Henry mostly bumbles around and gets himself into trouble and Olivia goes from evil manipulator to panicked self-doubter, President Taylor is the most likable of the First Family but certainly not the best President we've seen on 24 (she's leagues away from David Palmer, but definitely a step up from last season's acting President Noah Daniels).


The Sangala situation portrayed in Redemption is key to the first half of Season 7, with two of the bad guys we met in that movie becoming featured players -- Colonel Ike Dubaku (Hakeem Kae-Kazim) and General Benjamin Juma (Tony Todd). Dubaku and Juma have their moments -- each one orchestrating high profile terrorist attacks -- but both fizzle out, as if the 24 writers were eager to write them out and move on to the next major storyline.

As Day 7 begins, Jack Bauer is appearing before a Senate committee to answer for the now-disbanded CTU's human rights violations. With no Counter Terrorism Unit to follow, Season 7 instead focuses on the D.C. FBI office and we're introduced to a number of mostly forgettable characters there. There's the boss, Larry Moss (Jeffrey Nordling), who is against everything Jack and CTU stand for. There's analyst Janis Gold (Janeane Garofalo) who's essentially an FBI version of Chloe, but with no real emotions of her own other than annoyance and frustration. And there's analyst Sean Hillinger (Rhys Coiro), who's pretty much unlikable from the moment we first meet him (and it doesn't get any better after that).

There's just one FBI agent who stands out from the pack and is elevated to star status this season: Renee Walker (Annie Wersching), the only character besides Jack to be in all 24 episodes this season. At times Walker is portrayed as a female Jack Bauer -- willing to do whatever it takes to stop the bad guy, and kicking some major ass along the way. Unfortunately she's also shown as being on an emotional roller coaster, going from respecting Jack and his past work, to hating Jack and threatening to kill him, and then to trusting Jack with her life. Walker was also saddled with a never-explained history with her superior, Agent Moss, and had a soul-searching season-long storyline in which she struggled with the lengths she would have to go -- including torturing suspects -- in order to stop or prevent major attacks.

The torture issue was a prevalent one this season, involving not just Walker's story, but referenced repeatedly -- at the Senate committee, an Attorney General investigation, at the FBI office, and by President Taylor. Your personal and/or political feelings on torture will directly influence what you think of the torture discussion (and the conclusion of Agent Walker's storyline) but in this reviewer's opinion it was a bit much, putting too much real world politics into what in the past has been great escapist entertainment. Regardless of how realistic Jack Bauer's methods were, it's fun to watch him stop the next imminent attack.

Overall, the move to D.C. and the absence of CTU (with a creative re-introduction of Bill, Chloe and Tony) provided a much needed breath of fresh air into 24. Next season's move to New York should be another nice change of scenery, and one expects the story to reference or relate to the events seen in the final scenes of Day 7.

24 (season 7)

Season of television series

The seventh season of the American drama television series 24, also known as Day 7, premiered in the United States on Fox on January 11, 2009, and concluded on May 18, 2009. The season was originally scheduled to premiere on January 13, 2008, but was delayed due to the 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike.[1] On November 23, 2008, Fox aired 24: Redemption, a two-hour TV movie set between seasons.[2] Unlike all of the other seasons, this season's DVD set was released one day after the season finale. The season's storyline begins and ends at 8:00 a.m.

Season overview[edit]

The seventh season takes place 46 months after season six and two months after 24: Redemption. Jack Bauer is on trial for alleged crimes he committed while working for CTU. Senator Blaine Mayer has disbanded CTU and strengthened the policies of Allison Taylor's administration against torture. Bauer is brought into another counter-terrorist operation when FBI agent Renee Walker interrupts the hearing to tell him about an imminent threat.

Day 7 can be divided into four main acts:

  1. Warlord Iké Dubaku breaches a government firewall and attempts to cause massive damage, then tries to manipulate President Taylor by kidnapping her husband.
  2. A unit of soldiers from Sangala invades the White House and takes President Taylor hostage.
  3. Mercenaries from Starkwood acquire a prion weapon and threaten to deploy it on major American cities.
  4. Tony Almeida betrays Jack and the FBI by stealing the last canister of the pathogen and attempting to use it against civilians.

Major subplots[edit]

  • Senators are trying to send Jack to prison for life to make an example out of him.
  • Members of the Taylor family are still mourning the loss of Roger Taylor.
  • Tony Almeida's return to the series.
  • While Jack is happy to have his old friend back, he feels that something is not quite right.
  • Larry Moss tries to keep Renee Walker on the side of the law rather than adopting Jack's ruthless ways.
  • Renee has difficulty accepting situations that put civilians at risk for the greater good.
  • Allison Taylor begins to rethink the position she took against torture.
  • A rivalry between Ethan Kanin and Olivia Taylor unfolds at the White House.
  • Chloe clashes with an FBI analyst named Janis Gold.
  • Jack becomes infected with a lethal pathogen and struggles to make peace before he dies.
  • Kim Bauer has one last opportunity to reconnect with her father.

Summary[edit]

Day 7 begins in a U.S. Senatehearing during which Jack Bauer defends the necessity of his actions to Senator Blaine Mayer. Agent Renee Walker postpones the proceedings saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) urgently needs Jack's help. Even though Jack refuses to believe it at first, she reveals that Tony Almeida is still alive and that he is launching an attack against the government that betrayed him. When a contact agrees to talk to Bauer and Walker and is assassinated, the sniper leads them to Tony's location. Jack captures Tony and brings him to the FBI but learns that he is part of an undercover operation involving Bill Buchanan and Chloe O'Brian that aims to expose corruption in the government.

Jack breaks Tony out of the FBI's headquarters and meets with Bill and Chloe at a hideout that serves as a sort of underground CTU. There, he learns that Benjamin Juma and Iké Dubaku have infiltrated the government in order to stop the U.S. from invading Sangala. Dubaku plans to attack government infrastructure using the "CIP device" and have the Sangalan President, Ule Matobo, kidnapped. Jack and Tony team up with one of Dubaku's contacts, David Emerson, and proceed to kidnap Matobo. Along the way, Renee Walker discovers them. Instead of killing her, Jack manages to keep his cover safe by shooting her in the neck, burying her alive and sending her location to Chloe and Bill. After Tony reluctantly kills Emerson, the group hand Matobo over to Dubaku's henchmen and begin an assault once they learn Dubaku's location. During the assault, they rescue Matobo and destroy the CIP device but Dubaku escapes.

Dubaku attempts to manipulate President Taylor by kidnapping Henry Taylor but Jack and Renee find the First Gentleman by interrogating a U.S. Secret Service agent. During the rescue, Henry Taylor suffers a gunshot wound from which he eventually recovers. With Dubaku on the run, Walker and Bauer are able to find him with the help of his girlfriend Marika. Although Dubaku's vehicle crashes in a car chase killing Marika, Dubaku survives with enough strength to provide Bauer with a list of names of his co-conspirators. Buchanan uses this list to begin making arrests. When the arrests are in progress, Tony informs Jack that General Juma is planning an attack and tells him that Senator Mayer's chief of staff Ryan Burnett knows the details. Jack begins to torture Burnett but he is apprehended before he can finish. Juma is able to attack his target—which turns out to be the White House—and Jack, Bill and Taylor find themselves held hostage.

Although Jack plans to save the hostages by sacrificing himself, Bill Buchanan does this instead, saying that a dangerous conspiracy still remains and that Jack is the only person he trusts to unravel it. When Jack tries to get further information out of Burnett, a mercenary arrives who kills Burnett and frames Bauer for the murder. When Jack escapes, he learns that the mercenary, John Quinn, works for Starkwood—a defense contractor with an interest in developing bioweapons—led by a man named Jonas Hodges. After he is framed for the murder of U.S. Senator Mayer, Jack kills Quinn and learns the location of a bioweapon that just arrived from Sangala. He and Tony initiate a raid, which results in Tony's capture by Starkwood. Jack drives the weapon away from the port but is delayed when he stops to seal one of the leaking canisters. This not only exposes him to the pathogen but allows Starkwood to recapture it as well.

Jack learns that he is dying and tries to see the operation through to the end before he dies. He has an emotional meeting with his daughter Kim and tells Kim that he does not want her to try to save him with stem cells. FBI and military forces land in the Starkwood base and meet Tony Almeida but Starkwood forces outnumber them and force them to retreat. Tony sneaks away from the group and is able to remain at the base unseen. Co-ordinating with Jack, he destroys the canisters of the prion which allows the government to move in and arrest Hodges. To everyone's surprise, a Starkwood operative, Robert Galvez is seen with a surviving canister of the pathogen and a helicopter with Tony Almeida and Larry Moss on board gives chase. Tony betrays the FBI by killing Moss and helping Galvez escape the perimeter before escaping himself. Furious, Jack learns from Hodges that Tony has been in league with private military contractors all along and that he is working to have Islamic-Americans carry out a biological attack.

Tony and a co-conspirator named Cara Bowden force an innocent Muslim man to frame himself for a subway attack, by making a video and riding the subway, without knowing the details of what he's being framed for. Bowden delivers the canister of pathogenic agent, with a fifteen-minute timer on it, to the subway car the young man is riding, then exits. Jack intercepts the canister just in time but is forced to turn on the FBI and free Tony when he learns that Bowden's operatives are following Kim. Tony convinces Cara and the leader of their group named Alan Wilson to harvest the pathogen from Jack's body. Tony tells Jack in private that his plan is really to bring Alan Wilson into the open so that he can be murdered; Alan Wilson was the man behind Charles Logan, who had both David Palmer and Michelle Dessler murdered. FBI agents arrive at the compound having learned of Jack's location from a rescued Kim Bauer. A firefight ensues which is ended by Jack and Renee who stop Almeida from killing Wilson. Renee decides to torture Wilson when she learns that he has covered all his tracks. After Jack's doctor induces a coma, Kim arrives and begs her to begin the stem cell procedure that Jack told her not to undergo. The season ends with Kim at her father's side, left with a thread of hope that he may survive.

Production[edit]

Producers were determined to reinvent the series after receiving criticism over the sixth season.[23] They initially devised a storyline which would have Jack Bauer traveling to Sangala trying to find himself, and becoming caught up in a coup with Black Hawk Down-style results.[24]

"The fact is, it was a mutual issue," explains Gordon. "We struggled to do something new this year. We sent Jack Bauer, to Africa and I wrote a script that honestly did not work. Before the network even saw it at the studio level, we were getting kick-back from the idea, especially once we budgeted what Africa would cost. It was a combination of the studio was not enthusiastic to shoot there for budgetary purposes and creatively, it didn't feel like it warranted pushing our case. One day, at the IHOP, I sat across Joel and Bob and we all agreed this story wasn't working and retooled it two weeks ago."[24]

The decision to scrap the storyline and start over delayed production from July to late August.[25][26] Filming was delayed a second time (from August 27 to September 10) in order for writers to complete additional scripts.[27]

The crew was scheduled to film scenes with Kiefer Sutherland at the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro on Monday October 22, 2007; however, filming was canceled for health reasons due to raging wildfires in the area. Cast and crew had blurry vision and difficulty breathing from the smoke.[28]United States Navy SEALs helped battle fictional terrorists at Camarillo Airport during filming of an episode on August 12–13, 2008.[29]

After completion of the 18th episode, production was temporarily shut down on September 15, 2008, for two weeks in order to perform script rewrites for the final six episodes. In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Howard Gordon responded "We just couldn't get this direction to work, and we found another one that we liked better, so we wound up retooling it."[30]

Executive producer and 24 co-creator Joel Surnow left the series on February 12, 2008. His contract with 20th Century Fox was due to expire on April 30 but he requested an early release.[31] "I did some soul-searching. I took [the strike] as an opportunity to write on my own and do other things. After doing 24, I don't know if I want to do a mainstream show again. I like what's going on in cable; there is an opportunity to stretch dramatically there, which is something I'm trying to do."[32] Series co-creator and executive producer Robert Cochran also left the show after the twelfth episode. The position held by Surnow was filled by showrunner Howard Gordon.

Season 7 was dedicated to the memory of Larry Davenport, who was the assistant editor and editor since the first season. He died January 19, 2009.

Tony Almeida was seeming killed in Season 5, but was revealed to be alive in this seventh season. Showrunner Howard Gordon mentioned in an interview that they purposely filmed Tony's death in a way that would allow his eventual return.[33]

Trailer[edit]

The debut trailer aired on October 25, 2007.[34] In the trailer, Jack is seen testifying before Congress concerning his past extralegal activities, including the torture of terrorist Ibrahim Haddad. The international version of the trailer is largely identical but features an additional line where Bauer implies personal enjoyment from torturing a suspect. This line is cut from the US version.

A second trailer emphasized the plot concerning the United States losing control of its power lines, water supplies and air traffic control. Jon Cassar confirmed on the Fox message board that the 24: Redemption DVD would have a new alternate trailer for the season as an extra feature and that it contains scenes from the first fourteen episodes.

Writers Guild of America strike[edit]

On October 25, 2007, Fox premiered the first trailer and announced the return date for season 7 as January 13, 2008.[34] Just eleven days later, on November 5, 2007, the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike began. Rather than airing the eight completed episodes, Fox executives immediately postponed the season to ensure that it "can air uninterrupted, in its entirety."[1] Fox scheduling chief, Preston Blackman, admitted "It's not a decision we wanted to make, but it's one based on how we feel the viewers expect us to schedule the show."[35]

Following the conclusion of the writers strike, production resumed on April 22, 2008.[36]

Kiefer Sutherland claims the strike was beneficial to the show: "The time allowed us to do something that has never been done before — create a map of the entire season before we started shooting. So I can tell you without hesitation, I know for a fact, that season 7 is going to be the best season yet." Sutherland reiterated this in an interview with TV Guide on August 18, 2008.

24: Redemption[edit]

Main article: 24: Redemption

To make up for the lack of any 24 episodes in 2008, Fox aired a two-hour TV movie on Sunday, November 23, 2008, that bridges the gap between seasons 6 and 7.[2]

The storyline takes place during Inauguration Day for the next U.S. President, Allison Taylor, and is shot partially in South Africa.[2][38] "[Jack] is a soul in turmoil and has been moving from place to place trying to find somewhere he can be at peace," says co-executive producer, Manny Coto. "But he winds up in Sangala, an imaginary country in Africa in the middle of a military coup." While at Sangala, Bauer is subpoenaed to appear before the Senate hearing, but he doesn't want to go.[36]Redemption takes place approximately 42 months after Day 6 and Day 7 takes place 65 days after Redemption.

Energy reduction[edit]

Howard Gordon said that 24 cares about the issue of global warming and takes fighting climate change seriously. Measures were taken during the filming of season 7 to make the show carbon neutral. These measures include increased energy efficiency (hybrid vehicles), burning of cleaner fuels (natural gas, biodiesel), and purchase of renewable energy. Through these efforts, the crew was able to reduce the carbon emissions of the show's production by 43%. The remaining emissions will be eliminated with the purchase of carbon offsets.[39] In addition, a series of PSAs with Kiefer Sutherland and other main cast members were produced to educate the public on what they can do to help with the issue.[40]

Reception[edit]

Cherry Jones, who played PresidentAllison Taylor, won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, becoming the second Emmy Award-winning performer of the show, after Kiefer Sutherland in 2006. IGN's review of Season 7 praises Jon Voight's performance as Jonas Hodges saying "Hodges ends up being more of a Bond villain than a 24 villain – over the top at times, but creative and willing to stop at nothing to execute his plan." The same review disapproves of the season's focus on the politics of torture saying "it was a bit much, putting too much real world politics into what in the past has been great escapist entertainment."[41] On the review aggregator website Metacritic, the seventh season scored 72 out of 100, based on 21 reviews, indicating "Generally favorable reviews" and was considered a huge improvement over the previous season.[42]

"Trust one."
— Season 7 promotion

Season 7 of 24 premiered in the United States on January 11, 2009, at 8pm on Fox, two years after the previous season began. The premiere was a 2-night, 4-hour event (January 11 and 12 from 8-10pm on FOX/Global). In the UK, the show premiered with two episodes on January 12, with another two the following week. Every subsequent week had one episode, therefore placing the UK airing exactly one week behind the US.

The season concluded on May 18, 2009, with a double-bill finale. The finale aired in the UK the following Monday, May 25.

24: Redemption, a two-hour prologue episode to Season 7, aired on November 23, 2008.

Season overview[]

Nearly four years have passed since Abu Fayed's reign of terror, and Jack Bauer is on trial in Washington, D.C. for his supposed past crimes. Jack's day takes an unexpected turn when Tony Almeida, previously thought dead, returns. Meanwhile, newly elected PresidentAllison Taylor leads the country through difficult times alongside White House Chief of StaffEthan Kanin and First Gentleman Henry Taylor.

A national security crisis prompts an investigation by a team of FBI agents from the Washington Field Office including Janis Gold, Renee Walker, Larry Moss and Sean Hillinger. Despite the disbandment of the Counter Terrorist Unit, Chloe O'Brian and Bill Buchanan continue working, albeit underground, to help the day's efforts. Jack Bauer works with the FBI.

24: Redemption[]

Taking place about 44 months after Day 6, 24: Redemption details the Inauguration Day of PresidentAllison Taylor. Meanwhile, in Sangala, Africa, Jack Bauer is subpoenaed to appear before a Senate hearing regarding his actions with the Counter Terrorist Unit, but doesn't want to go. He ends up in the middle of a military coup while working at the Okavango School with friend Carl Benton.

Timeline[]

Main article: Timeline

Day 7 starts at 8:00amET (5:00amPT), taking place 46 months to 4 years after Day 6, and roughly 13 years after Day 1. This is the first season to use Eastern Time as opposed to Pacific Time.

Season 7 begins on November 2nd 2007, which is shown on the immunity agreement for Greg Seaton signed by President Taylor during the 11:00 PM to 12:00 midnight episode; the year can be derived from the last sentence on the agreement (1776+231).

A news broadcast in "Day 7: 8:00am-9:00am" confirms that Season 7 takes place 65 days after the events of 24: Redemption. Supposing that Inauguration Day took place on January 20th as it does in the real world, this would place Day 7 on or around March 26th. However, the prion variant cabal planned to keep the canister of the bioweapon for six months to replicate it, and Tim Woods said that would mean the attacks would be "early next year" suggesting that Season 7 takes place during or after July.

As Operation Hero claims Day 8, which is set 18 months after Day 7, is set on May 20-21, this would set Day 7 in November.

When President Taylor signs Greg Seaton's presidential pardon, the "second day of November" is mentioned. That would put Inauguration Day on August 29th, setting Day 7 at 13 years and 2 months after Day 1, if Day 6 took place in November.

Format[]

Day 7 can be split into four acts:

  1. Jack Bauer is drawn back into counter-terrorism at the FBI's request when a threat is raised involving Tony Almeida, his supposedlydead former ally. The mastermind behind the threat is Sangalanrebel commanderIké Dubaku, demanding a pullback of US Troops from Sangala and the surrender of Sangalan president Ule Matobo, using terrorist attacks he can pull off with a CIP device (and later kidnapped First GentlemanHenry Taylor) as leverage. The main antagonists in this act are ColonelIké Dubaku, Nichols, David Emerson, Brian Gedge, Edward Vossler and Sean Hillinger. (8:00am–6:00pm)
  2. Once Dubaku has been captured and the conspiracy revealed, Jack then follows a lead from Tony to thwart an attempted siege on the White House by Juma's unit targeting PresidentAllison Taylor. The main antagonists in this act are GeneralBenjamin Juma, Udo, Ngozi and Ryan Burnett. (6:00pm–8:15pm)
  3. After Juma's neutralization, another threat rises in the form of private military company Starkwood, who have possession of several canisters of a lethal pathogen which Jack becomes non-contagiously infected by. The main antagonists of this act are Starkwood members Jonas Hodges and Greg Seaton, and mercenaries John Quinn and Stokes. (8:15pm–1:45am).
  4. Tony betrays Jack/the FBI by stealing the final remaining canister of the pathogen for his crew. Jack finally learns the truth about the day's events from Tony, as the effects of his infection begin to take hold. The main antagonists in this act are Tony Almeida, Cara Bowden and Alan Wilson. (1:45am–8:00am)

Major subplots[]

  • Jack Bauer faces trial by United States Senate for human rights violations while working for CTU.
  • PresidentAllison Taylor must decide whether or not to send American soldiers into the African nation of Sangala.
  • The return of ex-CTU agent Tony Almeida, who appears to be working with the terrorists.
  • Henry Taylor's investigation into the apparent suicide of his son, Roger.
  • Bill Buchanan, Chloe O'Brian and Tony Almeida's undercover operations to bring down the corrupt members of Taylor's government.
  • A bio-weapon is brought into the country and the FBI and White House actively attempt to recover the toxin.
  • FBI Agent Renee Walker's internal conflicts about the rules and constraints she swore to abide by for the FBI and the necessity of torture to stop a terrorist.
  • The infection of Jack Bauer with the lethal pathogen which, as there is no cure, will lead to his death within a day or two.
  • Olivia Taylor's complicity in the murder of Jonas Hodges.
  • Tony Almeida's loyalties, which fluctuate between patriotism, the terrorists and his own personal agenda on several occasions.
  • Kim Bauer's attempts to find her father after hearing about his trial and her subsequent efforts to save him from his imminent death.

Impacts on future seasons[]

Ratings[]

The season premiere shown on Sunday ("8:00am-9:00am" and "9:00am-10:00am") averaged 12.6 million viewers; the following night ("10:00am-11:00am" and "11:00am-12:00pm") brought in 12.3 million viewers. Ratings remained at this level until "3:00pm-4:00pm," when they dipped to 10.5 million viewers. There was a steady increase after this, culminating in 11.6 million viewers for "5:00pm-6:00pm."

Ratings remained the same throughout the rest of the season, but increased by 6 million for the double bill finale. When 7:00am-8:00am was airing, over 20 million people were watching.
