A military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot of trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
An ex-assassin and a wealthy programmer save lives via a surveillance AI that sends them the identities of civilians involved in impending crimes. However, the details of the crimes--including the civilians' roles--are left a mystery.

In Season 2 Episode 2, it is shown that Michelle Dessler was on the helicopter with Jack Bauer at 05:42 minutes into the episode, but it is shown later that Michelle Dessler is at CTU headquarters at around 08:30 into the episode when George Mason got off the phone with Jack who just landed the helicopter 2 minutes ago. It is not possible for Michelle Dessler to get back from the helicopter in time in any ways if the show runs on a real time schedule. See more »
