"Tell me, Jack. What's your pain?"
18 August 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

The sixth episode of Day 3 slows down the action a little, but maintains the suspense consistent, making for another hour of landmark US television. It spends more time on certain characters' psychology, delivering a compelling study of conflicting personalities.

Having managed to get Ramon out of jail, Jack seizes a helicopter so that they can get to a plane that will take them to Mexico. The CTU, on the other hand, pressured by Ryan Chappelle (Paul Schulze), is trying to urge him to reconsider his actions since Kyle Singer has been taken into custody. As for President Palmer, he is forced to cancel the debate with Senator Keeler (Geoff Pierson), making some believe he may not be fit to run the country for another four years (his illness had already triggered such suspicions earlier).

As the situation gets more intense, the writers take some time to analyze Jack's tormented psyche. In past episodes, we have learned he became a drug addict to pull off the undercover job that put Ramon in jail, and now his enemy is implying there's something more to it. "So, Jack, tell me. What's your pain? What is it that makes the needle go in?" The most immediate answer to that would probably be his wife's death two seasons ago, but it's never openly declared. Due to the show's nature, there's no time for that, and so we find ourselves formulating our own theories while the race against the clock continues mercilessly. How many programs allow you to do that?
