A 24 Community
FOX (ended 2010)

The longest day ever is technically not even half over. only 12 episodes and 12 hours. But for the sake of this season of 24 - our day is almost done.



Remember to Click the HEART if you came by the Party this week!



Kate and Jack try to shoot themselves out of the Russian trap as Cheng realizes exactly who he is dealing with.


The tracker that was once attached to the Override, leads our heroes to the carnage at Open Cell. Chloe managed to hit the voice recorder on a cell phone, revealing to Jack a very familiar voice.


And unfortunately - that same voice has an equally disturbing affect on Audrey when Jack calls the President to inform him of the new owner of the Override. Heller didn't think Cheng was alive. He was told he was killed 3 years ago as he tried to escape from a Chinese prison. He looks pretty spry for a dead man. He was alive and well and wanted to basically destroy the modern world.




If we were wondering if it was simply a coincidence that both the Russians and the Chinese were brought into Jack Bauer's sphere of influence - wonder no longer.


Stolnavich and Cheng are in cahoots.



With the US attack on a Chinese carrier, President Heller has some fine stepping to do to avoid military escalation.


Audrey has a contact at the Chinese Embassy that might be able to help convince the Chinese that the events unfolding is not truly their doing.



Audrey leaves to meet her contact as Jack comes in to confront Mark and talk with the President. It begins with a call of concern as to how all this was affecting Audrey.


It ends with a heartfelt confession of feelings of what had once been. Audrey assures Jack that she never hated him for all that had happened. She also gives him the go ahead to give Cheng everything he deserves.



Jack lays it all out on the table.


The President cannot believe his ears as he hears his Chief of Staff essentially admit to treason. But there is a way for Mark to make this all right. He can use his connection with Stolnavich toget Jack information on Cheng. I mean - who benefits from a US/China war? The Russians, obvs.



Cheng still has Chloe in toe, smartly keeping around a computer genius makes more sense than a bullet to the head. But what Cheng did not expect was that Chloe had it in her to Jack-out, beat the crap out of his thugs...


...and leap from the truck. Even laying perfectly still - it would have been just a matter of time before she was found. Fortunately, a caravan of British military comes rolling through and orders them to move their truck off the road. Cheng has no choice but to let Chloe go.



Jack and Mark have little to no plan. Wearing a camera on his lapel, the idea is for Gavin to get an idea of the security of the Russian Embassy and then disable it - allowing Jack and Kate to have a chat with the Russians.


It works and he gets inside under the guise of seeing asylum. Unfortuantely when ole 'Stache sees the cameras go out - he has a moment of clarity.


He moves to attack Mark as Jack and Kate warmly greet the security staff.


During the scuffle, glass in embedded in Stolnavich's neck, pretty much ruling out the chance Jack can get any useful intelligence out of him about Cheng.


Lesson here: Do NOT pull out the foreign object stuck in your neck!



Audrey meets with her contact... and for a moment it appears she will be helpful in getting her bosses to look at the evidence the US has, implicating Cheng in the attack on their Aircraft Carrier. But gunshots ring out, everyone around her is dropped, and Audrey stands stunned in the middle of an empty park as we move to the Split Screens to end Hour 11!!!


Jack and Mark take apart Stolnavich's office to try to find anything that will help them find Cheng. The President, having agreed to go to DEFCON 3 after the Chinese take out a couple of our surveillance satellites, is moved to a secure location. Chloe decides it safe to leave her warm, comfy ditch. And Audrey. Poor poor Audrey.

The phone rings and the voice on the other end is the one voice she feared most she would hear.


And once again, Audrey finds herself at the mercy of Cheng Zhi.




See y'all in an hour!

kiefer says something else and does something else, i think if there is a good enough story and some good bucks in kiefer's pocket he would do one more season of 24, cant wait for the time jump in the season finale wonder how it will work, one scenario would be jack back in L.A at the end of the episode.................#wishfull thinking"

How great would that be? Jack the new head of CTU LA

Unfortunately I think they made it clear in the car talks with Kate that Jack has come to terms with his demons. They are giving him a nice resolution. At the same time - they are building up Kate and her demons. If it continues it'll be Yvonne in the lead.

Kiefer gave this show 9 seasons - all but this one 24 episodes long. That is a lot of TV. I am OK if he decides this is it. Remember - this is what they had planned for a movie, so this was closure for Kiefer.

I would love it if he just stayed open to guest starring

Looking forward to Chloe being attacked by a grouchy badger or squirrel (hedgehog?) in the finale.

Please 24 let this be not be the last series. Surely a 12 episode seson could be sustainable. This season has filled a gap that has been so lacking in excitement on TV. If Jack does not return I am doomed to the Housewives of who gives a shit and Kim Kardashions big fat arse. Help me please.

I think Kiefer has said he doesn't want to do more - but that is why they have set up Kate so well. The ratings were good. I think we will get a new 24 with Kate

I would definately take that. The style and drama of 24 is unmatched. Perhaps Jack could make a guest appearance.

Is it me or did Jack show more restraint towards Marc than expected.

Chloe out in the field is always fun, expect her to conveniently wake up in time to save the day in some way.

The moment Audrey was coming up with her plan i assume the entire 24dom like me just face palmed as it was clear she was going to get captured. This was the first time this season i couldn't let the silliness of the scene go. How does the PRESIDENTS DAUGHTER get captured so easily. It does create drama and quite the dilemma next episode i just did not like the scene.
The phone call scene between Jack and Audrey though had all sorts of sploshing and flooding.

One of my great 24 loves is when Jack has to go on these infiltration missions with silenced pistols.

Copnsidering the have portrayed Audrey as a victim - how sweet would it be if it was set up this way so she could get to Cheng???

It would be.. I dont really view Audrey as the victim type, more that she is just not as capable as others..Especially compared to the pther female leads like Michelle, Chloe and Renee for example.
I actually like Audreys character in previous seasons. Shes actually done nothing this season except splish and splash.

Lol it reminds me of the old Goldeneye game on N64 if you ever played that. Silencer pp7.
As for 24 the best silent infiltration in my eyes coincendentaly is the one in season 4 where jack saves Heller and Audrey.

No rewatch necessary..episode 6 of season 4 is all you need.

He did. In fact he was even somewhat forgiving, probably for Audrey's sake. PArt of that was knowing MArk could make up for his choice.

great recap/gif-party
Is this really going to be a limited event? I hope not. Shit like Under the Dome (limited event…lol) gets renewed for a season 2 but we only get 12 episodes of 24….WTF?

I know I know. The ratings are really good (and actually kept improving) so I gotta think we'll get another. Not sure if Kiefer would want anything but a supporting role though. We'll get KAte Jacking-Out

It covers quite a bit of territory in behavior as well! To include Bone breaking and decapitations.

I haven't seen 24 since season 7, not of out dislike, just really laziness, but have been checking your gif Parties. I just wanted to say, I laugh whenever I see Ping Thud, Ping Plop, Ping Thud, Ping Plop, Ping Thud.

LOL! I care so much about those, I do each one separately for the appropriate episode! To get the time right. Beautiful to know it is appreciated.

Without the PING THUD PING PLOP ...it is incomplete!

Sorry, I'm a bit partied out: the Roskilde Festival ended yesterday.

I could hardly believe that Chloe got away with it. Single handedly attacking a lorry full of chinese goons. The girl's got guts.

The Russian's security is beyond incompetent. He uses an electronic scanner but doesn't see that Mark is carrying two active radio transmitters and yet claims that he is completely clean. I'm not sure how those hand-held scanners work, but I find it hard to believe that it wouldn't pick up an active radio signal.

Jack and Kate shooting up a luxury mansion foyer: superb.

This has to be a setup for a second half-season. Surely they can't resolve all of this weeks cliff-hangers in one hour.
And that would be great: we want more Jack and Kate.

I initially read that as "Roadkill Festival"

I could hardly believe that Chloe got away with it. Single handedly attacking a lorry full of chinese goons.

You missed the part where a Chinaman teased her eye make-up

He uses an electronic scanner but doesn't see that Mark is carrying two active radio transmitters and yet claims that he is completely clean.

I didn't get that either. I meant to go back and check if something was dropped about it being a undetectable signal. Or was that a metal detector for a weapon check, maybe?

I'm not a fan of Chloe's eye make up but she is not known for her fashion sense, make up, hair, etc…. I am a fan of her computer skills and a bunch of other stuff about Chloe

I do wonder, though ,why the showrunners decided on that look for Chloe this season.

Well, I do feel a bit like roadkill right now :-)

Even if it is a metal detector I would think that it would pick up a radio signal.

IDK ...I just know I had the EXACT question you did. BUt the scene wasn't necessary really. So maybe it was just meant to show the audience MArk was not armed.

When I am scratching my head on stuff - I ask "Why would they include THAT particular scene?"

And are we to believe that Mark had no other metal in his pockets? IRL he would spend 10 minutes emptying the contents of his pockets and person (coins, watch, keys, lucky gonk, unexpected piercings) into a tray and then putting them back again.

Nice. Just...nice

Yeah - I was wondering about that and the military. They hang out on London streets with assault rifles and they ignore sketchy dudes searching the woods on the side of the road? Without even a question? Of course ...good they didn't because then there is a firefight and maybe Chloe doesn't slip away.
