    With Nina out of the way, the virus storyline starts heating up like crazy. The final Bigbad of the season is introduced, and he's English! Though we're not supposed to know it yet, the next episode's Previouslies give it away, so I'll tell you right now that his name is Stephen Saunders. But revealed in this very episode is that he has a personal connection to Jack. Let your imaginations flow, pervs…
    Jack is let off the hook for his actions last hour (because he's Jack Bauer) as he goes to hunt down Amador. He successfully captures Amador, but he's too late to retrieve the virus. It's been converted from its mucky liquid form to a powder that can spread much more effectively. In a nutshell, a portion of the virus is released at the Chandler Plaza Hotel by Alvers. And "24" proves its ability to shock once again by having us think that CTU will be able to stop it, then…they don't stop it! Muahahahahaha!
    The first two seasons have had similar minor victories for the bad guys, but this one raises the stakes by condemning up to a thousand civilians to death. Keep topping yourselves, writers. Pretty soon, it may all backfire on you (*cough*S4*cough*).

    Hourly Highlight:
    Nice that Jack and Amador have some time to chat about their families.
