Storyline

On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM, David Palmer decides to tell the family side of the story to the press, explaining that it was actually an accident, and he tries to convince Sherry and Keith to support him. However, Sherry suggests David to find some dirty in the past of Maureen and blackmail her to bury the truth and preserve their family. Kim gets out from Kevin, dominates him and calls Jamey asking for help. However, the agents do not arrive but Gaines's men instead. Meanwhile Gaines forces Jack Bauer to switch the key card. When Milo notes the replacement of card, he tells Nina and she presses Jack; he points his gun and forces Nina to leave CTU with him. Rick helps Kim to escape, but when she sees that her mother was also abducted, she decides to return to her imprisonment. Gaines orders Jack to shoot Nina. Tony retrieves the images in Jack's office and does not understand why he dressed Nina with a bulletproof vest. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Not only does Ira Gaines have remote access to his contact's computer inside the CTU, but apparently several "24" staff members as well: Michael Loceff- writer, Virgil Williams - writer, Nicole Burke - Second assistant director, Todd Wasserman - Production Assistant, Tony Pacheco - Production Accountant, Jason Savage - Assistant Location Manager. Also, none of the IP addresses actually exist. In every listing at least one octet is greater than 255 (IP octets range from 0-255). This ensures people looking for trivia don't actually try to remotely connect to existing IPs. See more »

Goofs

When Kim pushes Rick away telling him to get off of her a crew member holding some measuring device can be seen for a second in the lower right corner. See more »

Who can be trusted?
9 December 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Having brought things to a whole new level in Episode 6, the writers now raise the suspense so much that waiting to see the continuation on DVD was, for me, as unbearable as it usually is to wait three months for the next season of your favorite show to begin. Such is the power of 24.

Tensions are high from the very beginning, Jack having been controlled by the evil Ira Gaines for the past hour. Now, merely 90 minutes before David Palmer is scheduled to make a public appearance, he has to return to CTU and exchange some important evidence with a forgery so that the assassin, posing as a photographer, can work undisturbed. In order to do this, though, Bauer has to deceive his collaborators, and given he didn't trust some of them earlier on, any suspicious behavior is going to cause the same reaction in them. Similar difficulties are faced by Jack's wife Teri, who has just realized the man helping her is actually working for her daughter's kidnappers. Trust is also in short support in the Palmer family, with the Senator uncertain about his wife's loyalties after the discovery that she and their kids tried to keep a dangerous secret hidden from him.

This is probably the most tense hour of the entire season, due to the plot gimmick of everyone double-crossing everyone else and the real exasperation that emerges from Kiefer Sutherland's wounded performance. In addition, the identity of the mole inside CTU is finally revealed: it might not be who you expected. Still brilliant.
