24 Legacy: S1 E10
This was was a crazy fast-paced plot, so I restructured the review a bit this week to keep track. Let’s go!
Main plot: Eric and Rebecca reunite. He’s wanting to speak to Jennifer (the security guard’s girlfriend) to see if she knows anything. At the same time, Henry (John’s father) calls to yell at Rebecca and she tells him that John has been kidnapped. He rats out Louis as someone who may be able to provide more information. Rebecca tells him to keep his eye on Louis, so Henry goes downstairs to confront him. Henry has to get a little physical with him, but Louis knocks him over the head with a bottle (!!) and runs.
The van with Naseri, Jadalla, and John stops and they all get out. Jadalla’s father is alive!! He’s severely burned and disfigured, but alive. Naseri says his father had to know he was loyal before he could reveal himself.
Rebecca finds out about Henry’s assault and gets an encrypted phone call—from Jadalla. If she answers for her actions against their family, they’ll let John go.
Tells Jennifer that the men who killed Stephen are still alive. He slowly coaches her through recalling when the men entered her home. Andy is okay! He has the sleeper cell names too.
Rebecca interrupts Eric and Nicole’s marital squabble to tell Eric her plan to rescue John. She wants to use herself as bait. Eric is down and replies, “Imma need a few things.” WHAT?!?! What things??
Rebecca and Eric are driving and he tells her about Nicole finding out his CTU plans. Cute heart-to-heart moment. Once Eric leaves with Rebecca, Andy starts speaking to Jennifer instead...all she can remember is the men uttering “East July.” But once again, they are interrupted because Mullins wants to speak to Andy. Mullins is looking for Rebecca, but knows she left with Eric (then why’d you ask?!?!). Nosy pants Mariana finds out that they were going to meet someone. I still don’t trust this woman—even if she is Edgar Stiles niece.
Back to Eric and Rebecca, Jadalla calls to make sure she’s on her way and alone. He’s unwilling to give her proof of life. Later, the police (with Andy tracking them at CTU) try to pull over Eric and Rebecca, but he evades them, starting a chase. Eric makes Rebecca take over the wheel while he hops out the moving truck! They draw guns on Rebecca but Eric sneaks up on them from behind, but CTU can no longer track them underground.
Andy received some ping linking them to the Director of National Intelligence. The one who ordered to blow up the compound last week. Hmm, we need to keep this in mind for some bigger plot/mole.
Rebecca arrives at the checkpoint, an empty football stadium. Rebecca tells Eric that if they kidnap her, don’t let them take her alive. Eric halfheartedly promises. Jadalla calls her and orders her to the center of the field, but Rebecca says she’s not budging until they release John. He then sends her a gif of her husband bound and gagged. Jadalla is cold man! Rebecca calls his bluff. Ben Khalid Sr. orders Jadalla and Naseri to release John because he really wants Rebecca. They throw John out of the van into oncoming traffic (cold-blooded!).
Rebecca then sacrifices herself as tribute because she wants to be responsible for making sure Jadalla and his crew die. She releases the field she’s standing in is soaking in gasoline. She meets Jadalla who has a camera set up for her to make a confession that he’s pre-written. He then lights a flare. Rebecca stands strong. Eric shoots Jadalla in the face!!! Rebecca then has to run across the field before it catches on fire and explodes and…of course she trips. So Eric has to go out there and get her butt. Eric can’t find her so he calls into CTU to speak to Mullins. He thinks the terrorists have grabbed Rebecca. She shouts Ben Khalid’s alive! *beep boop*
Andy/CTU: Once Eric leaves with Rebecca, Andy starts speaking to Jennifer instead...all she can remember is the men uttering “East July.” But once again, they are interrupted because Mullins wants to speak to Andy. Mullins is looking for Rebecca, but knows she left with Eric (then why’d you ask?!?!). Nosy pants Mariana finds out that they were going to meet someone. I still don’t trust this woman—even if she is Edgar Stiles niece.
Tony: Tony and his lady are discussing the wire transfer and they are about to leave. Keith calls Tony and tells her about John being abducted. Tony says he hasn’t heard from her, but they have joint trackers on their phones. His lady is mad because Tony wants to help Rebecca and they might miss their flight.
Nicole: Nicole marches through CTU and wants to speak to Eric. They finally embrace and he tells Nicole that he’s spotted Naseri. She confronts Eric about the letters regarding him wanting to join CTU. She is not happy and Eric ain’t got the answers for her.
Nicole and Isaac are sitting around worried. I’m more worried that these two are going to run away together. Isaac low-key asks her!
Highlights: I like that Rebecca has stepped up in the action! Although not as high-powered like the original 24, the actions scenes have been pretty cool.
