      But the reason he did that is that the assassin told him that the authorities knew he was the inside link. That's what I don't get is how/when was that connection made?

      I think he said they would figure it out, not that they already had at that point.
      Regarding chopping off body parts, I don't think they can top the first hour of season 2.

      I think crazy Renee is the only original thing this season. Everything else is recycled. I like crazy Renee, it's nice seeing jack afraid of someone else instead of everyone being afraid of Jack.

      I understand that point of view. But to me this is a case of "if it ain't broke don't fix it." Jack's a one man show. He doesn't need a sidekick. But this is FOX, so obviously they will give him one with a nice rack... anything to increase viewership ratings.

      At this point, I'll take anything "new" to the series. Unfortunately I can see them turning Renee into Jack's love interest later this season, which only adds to the sappiness that they started with all the grandpa stuff.

      Let's face it, Jack probably went from six to midnight after Renee tortured that guy last season.

      I just wonder how Jack is fine after being beaten to a pulp by the cop only 45 minutes earlier.

      Because he's Super Jack. It happens every season.

      OK, I just watched the first two (four) episodes and I am a little foggy on my 24 history.
      So at the end of season 7, Renee went crazy and assumingly tortured Williams or whatever his name was (confirmed this in this episode), but how long ago was that? I'm assuming this undercover Russian mob thing was well before Renee and Jack met last season?
      How old is Jack's granddaughter? I would have placed her around 3 or 4 years old. I hate how the timeline is never clear with 24. Was the granddaughter already in the picture in Season 7? I just can't remember.
      I do love that Jack turned Renee into a total torturing machine, considering how she was such a wuss before.
      And I know I complain every season about how stupid 24 is and how it's always the same thing over and over again, but hell, it is entertaining. Not to mention Renee looks even hotter than she did last season, so I will continue to watch. Adding the other hot blonde was a good move as well, Fox. Keep Kim in a few more of the episodes and I'll be content for the rest of the season.

      Jack's granddaughter did exist last season, but he didn't know about her. I think Kim was going to tell him when she came to the Senate hearings. Not sure how old the granddaughter was, 1 or less?

      Ahhhhh right! Ok, so we figure this has been a year or two since then. Works for me.

      Day 7 was 20 months ago. The picture Kim showed her potential kidnappers in the airport was of a kid at least 1 year old. (I was surprised the same actor is playing her husband, as he's now the lead on "Vampire Diaries" on CWTV, but he's not getting a lot of screen time on 24 so I guess he can do both).
      Renee was undercover with the Russian mob 6 years ago; their cover is that she's been in prison all this time (which actually might have done Walker some good).

      Perfect. I probably should have watched season 7 again before season 8, but I couldn't put myself through that torture again.

      With this as season 8 and the time that elapsed between seasons, anyone have an idea how old Jack is now?

      While I enjoy it, and will watch it, it seems that it's the same old story. Only the names/places have changed. I only started watching it last year. Was nice to watch all the early seasons back to back. Sucks having to wait every week for the new episode.
      Unfortunately, I think the 'real time' format precludes there ever being a 24 movie.

      That said, there's always a twist about halfway through, I'm hoping this season's twist will make us go WTFWTFWTFWTF.

      Exactly! He is an idiot too! Can't seem to have any imagination that something else may happen or that people can be setup to take the fall.
      Blondie and BillyBob are really starting to piss me off! How will she explain to FPJ the random dude in their apartment?
      I really liked how Walker had no hesitation getting back into the swing of things!
