24 Season Premier - Night Two

Absolutely incredible.

That's my reaction. The Season Premier ends with a 9/11-type moment: A nuke explodes in the city. Jack watches from a distance as the mushroom cloud forms. Only minutes earlier Jack was forced into a wretched decision: Allow a former terrorist-turned-diplomat die or shoot his own friend. The former terrorist must live in order to save lives. Instinct takes over. Jack kills his friend.

Staggering mindlessly away from the scene Jack vomits and loses his footing. The emotional force of the moment cannot stop a cell phone in this digital era and Jack finds himself speaking to his superior at the Counter Terrorism Unit. Jack says he is out. Jack says he is done. But then Jack sees the nuke explode.

Jack is in. And there's going to be hell to pay.

As usual it was an incredible start to the next season of 24.
