William Devane (Heller) does not appear in this episode.
As Jack's team prepares to storm the warehouse, the time is 03:56:14. Marwan then orders the launch sequence initiated for the missile about 10 seconds later, and it is set to fire in four minutes. It goes airborne at 03:59:57, which is three minutes and 33 seconds.
In the last episode, it took Jack, in an emergency situation, 25 minutes to get from the Chinese consulate to CTU headquarters. In this episode, the chief of security gets from the consulate to CTU in no longer than 8 minutes (the time between his last scene at the consulate to when he shows up at CTU) and possibly as short as 2 minutes (the time between Michelle being notified the chief is visiting to when he shows up).
Novick: We were unlucky, sir.
Logan: Unlucky? (uneasy laugh) Yeah...I would say we were unlucky.
Buchanan: (to Chloe) We're in the middle of an active code. We don't have time for your personality disorder.
Not so much of a rare instance anymore, but once again, there are no split-screens at the end of the episode.
This episode was followed by another webcast of 24Inside, featuring Louis Lombardi ("Edgar Stiles").
