* David's reaction after learning that Sherry once again defied him, leaking his survival to the press, putting Kim's life as collateral. He has to be physically restrained by Mike, as Sherry is visibly shaken and backed into a wall by her husbands violent outburst to her endangering the life of a young girl, let alone the daughter of the man who had saved him twice in the past 24 hours, to the point he shatters a vase.
-->'''David''': Damn you if that ''Child'' dies!

* The Entirety of the Season Finale 11:00PM-12:00AM, is one straight hour of a rollercoaster ride of kick ass. There's a reason TV Guide ranked it amongst the 10 greatest television episodes of all time!

* From the same episode: Once again, [[ReplacementScrappy Janice]] starts complaining when the FBI starts looking for all Muslims in Washington, as she feels it's racial profiling. Jack Bauer, who already served her once, [[TakeThat gets back in her face]]. But this time... Jack calmly tells her that he's just as pained as she that they have to racially profile all Muslims, but he's trying to save lives and he'll gladly do it another way if there is one. Janice backs down without another peep. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Jack is so BadAss, he doesn't have to kick your ass to kick your ass.

** The escape from the CIA black site also shows that Jack hasn't missed a beat since we last saw him. [[spoiler:While being led down to the torture chamber by the JerkAss Agent Rittler, Jack first activates a pre-planted beacon in his wrist. He then chokes the arrogant, younger operative with his handcuffs, breaks loose, and before another agent can get to him, Jack is already sticking a Glock 17 in the man's face while delivering his first BadAssBoast of the season. He then finds Chloe, revives her, and with Agent Kate Morgan bearing down on them, uses his gun to set off a colossal explosion which guts a significant portion of the building. Meanwhile, Jack's associate, who's been notified by the beacon, destroys a portion of the sidewalk with a grenade launcher, deploys a ladder down the newly created opening, and before any of the CIA personnel have realized how badly Jack has outwitted them, their prisoners are long gone.]]

** The final shootout deserves more elaboration. To lure Jack in, the bad guys have their mole tell him that Kim has been killed. "[[FamousLastWords He'll be here]]," [[TemptingFate one says]]. He immediately busts in, GunsAkimbo, and just starts emptying magazines. This place is ''filled'' with the dudes behind the ''real'' conspiracy that was behind what we ''thought'' was the conspiracy, and they'd been downright scary {{Out Gambit}}ting {{Badass}}es who'd driven the tensest, most suspenseful action series you'd ever seen, holding all the cards ever since they were revealed. Then PapaBear lost his Kimmy, or so he thinks. The result is him going through like a machine, making every terrorist and {{Mook}} eat lead. Five minutes of ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' action later, a completely one-sided fight in which Jack mechanically, wordlessly kills whatever moves no matter ''what'' they try against him ends with him as the only living human being on the compound. All year, these guys were so unstoppable, so scary, so in control of the entire chessboard. Then one day they screwed with PapaWolf. '''Then they died.'''

** But before that, [[spoiler: Kate reveals to Jack that Audrey has been shot. [[TearJerker At first, he falls into depression and pulls out a hand pistol]] [[DrivenToSuicide considering suicide]]. However, instead of ending it all, he puts the pistol away and goes into an UnstoppableRage and murders all of Cheng Zhi's minions and then beat Cheng Zhi himself to near-death.]]

* Everyone groans as Kim is put in danger to blackmail Jack yet again. However, this time, she stabs one of her captors (with a '''''[[ImprobableWeaponUser pen]]''''') just in time to get away from the shots the other one fires, then follows the man and lets the cavalry know his location. After his car flips over, she goes into the burning vehicle to get a key piece of evidence and manages to fight off his last desperate attack, severely burning her arm but getting away with the bad guys' location. She's officially {{The Kimberly}} no more.
