The Takedown of Air Force One [Season 4, Episodes 13-18]
Jack and co., through the takedown of Henry Powell and Dina and Behrooz Araz, found the trail of Habib Marwan, the man in control of the Dobson Override. Jack and Curtis managed to stop the meltdown of five power plants, although one did meltdown at San Gabriel Island. We learn that Marwan worked for McLennen-Forster under the alias Harris Barnes, but as Jack and Paul search their computer files, they detonate an EMP to cover their involvement. The pair manage to escape but as they’re rescued by CTU, Paul i...

Finding the Override Device [24 Season 4, Episodes 7-12]
So, in the first part of Season 4, Jack is now working for the Secretary of Defense, James Heller, and is dating his daughter, Audrey. Heller and Audrey are kidnapped at the end of episode 1 and then Jack rescues them less than 5 hours later. Of course, Driscoll didn’t want to work with Jack at first and resisted his attempts. While everyone thought that the purpose of Heller’s kidnapping was to humiliate him and the country through a forced confession and execution, it turns out the whole thing was a diver...

Jack Bauer and the Department of Defense [Season 4, Episodes 1-6]
Jack Bauer is out of CTU: he’s got a job working for Secretary of Defense Heller and is in a serious relationship with his daughter, Audrey. But as terrorists begin attacking the United States with a train bombing and the kidnapping of Heller and Audrey, Jack is dragged back into action, tasked by new CTU director Erin Driscoll with saving them....


Jack Bauer's Worst Day - Review of Season 3
Season 3 is near the top of our favorite seasons of 24, mostly for the second half of the season. It's also (probably) one of the worst days for Jack as well as the nail in the coffin for David Palmer's presidency. Overall thoughts on season 3 I underestimated 3A from memory, it’s a mix of the slow-burn nature of season 2 and the big moment-centric approach of seasons 4/5 but it really works 3B is just immense, relentlessly thrilling and edge-of-your-seat stuff There are a lot of threads early on: Kyle...

The Rise and Fall of Steven Saunders (Season 3 Episodes 19-24)
As Steven Saunders increases his control over President Palmer and the country, Jack and CTU make strides toward identifying Steven Saunders weakness. We also see Tony crossing the line in an effort to save Michelle. Ultimately, we see Jack getting the upper hand (no intended slight to Chase) and CTU tracking down the remaining vials of the virus. Unfortunately, even though Palmer gains control over Saunders, the final nail is driven into his political coffin.   Main talking points: Jane Saunders sting Ton...

David Palmer Loses Control of His Presidency (Season 3 Episodes 13-18)
We pick up with Jack and Chase arresting Nina to bring her back to LA. She unleashes a computer worm on CTU which Chloe manages to stop, and while being questioned Nina manages to escape, only to be shot and killed by Jack. Stephen Saunders, one of Jack’s team on Operation Nightfall, is revealed as the true buyer of the virus, and has Marcus Alvers release a vial in the Chandler Plaza hotel, causing 800+ people including Gael and Michelle to become exposed. Saunders makes demands of President Palmer, just m...


Things Go Bad in Mexico [24 Season 3, Episodes 7-12]
Last week, we started season 3, where Jack, Tony, and Gael fabricated a story that a virus is going to be spread through Kyle Singer. The whole point of the story was to facilitate Jack breaking Ramon Salazar out of prison so he could gain their trust and lead Jack and CTU to the real virus threat. Now, during the first six episodes, it wasn’t revealed that it was all manufactured, but it seemed legit. As we get into episodes 7 and 8, Tony comes out of the hospital and is forced to reveal the plot of the un...

Jack Tracks Down an Engineered Virus [24 Season 3, episodes 1-6]
This time, another day begins for Jack Bauer as bioterrorists are attempting to release viral capsules into Los Angeles and eventually throughout the United States. President Palmer must deal with a scandal as he seeks re-election against a Republican senator, John Keeler. Jack is again thrust into action as he tries to tie Ramon Salazar to the viral threat; however, presumed-dead Operation Nightfall operative Stephen Saunders turns out to be the mastermind behind the release of the Cordilla virus.   Season...


David Palmer's Presidency in 24 Season 2
Season 2 starts fairly flimsily and picks up hugely after Nina is brought into CTU, and especially from the moment Kate is kidnapped As aforementioned, there is a relentless tension which fills this season like a building smog, and it’s glorious Season 2 also contains 24’s best episode (episode 15, in Bradley's opinion).   The Game/Max Love the first-person shooter stuff, similarly sniper missions Puzzle solving is solid but really repetitive and not that hard Interrogations are alright, weirdly I really...

Race to Find the Nuclear Bomb - Season 2, Episode 7-12
After a somewhat shaky first 6 episodes of season 2, this next 6 gets things into a nice gear. While the scenes with Kim are lack-luster, things get heated and emotional between Jack, Nina, and President Palmer as an impossible decision is made. Key plot points we cover: Jack and Nina go after Mamud Faheen Coral Snake crew attack and Nina has Jack hostage Jack rescues Kate Syed Ali interrogation Mason’s health decline Warner drama (Bob’s CIA! Marie’s a terrorist!) David’s Roger Stanton issue Lynne v Sherry...
