Jack is one tough dude. In the morning he is in a jet crash with a branch stuck in his leg and a couple of hours later he is running around like nothing happened. Then (after no sleep, constantly on the go) that night he is tortured to death, literaly. Shock, beatings, scalpel cuts, burns etc.. He flatlined, and had several shocks and epinephrine stuck in his heart, but once again within an hour he is back in a gunfight running around like nothing happened.
Also the reporter guy that was going to go with a story that the Prez asked him to hold for a few hours DOES NOT go with a story about the cabinet meeting to remove the Prez? He would have been on the air minutes after leaving the conference room.
But still a kick ass show.
