Several scenes were deleted from the final print of this episode. In one scene, Saunders explains to Jack that Rabens' objective is to get out of the country with the remaining vial so he can replicate the virus and plan another attack. In another scene, a chopper radios Rabens for a pick-up after he fights with Chase. See more »


The geography for the fight between Chase and Rabens is very off for a real-time show. This is because a cut down version of the fight was used in the episode. The full fight can be seen on the Season 3 DVD. For example, when Chase goes to clamp the device to his wrist, Rabens was at his feet, because he was heading to the window to see his helicopter. But when he goes to grab Chase, he is at Chase's head, on the other side of the room. In the full version, Chase had flipped Rabens over his head, to get him on the other side of the room.

The end of Day Three
10 September 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Another season finale, another overflow of powerful emotions: the end of 24, Day 3, doesn't have the same dramatic punch of the final moments of the first two seasons, but it still confirms the show's status as one of the edgiest, most compelling TV programs of the 21st century.

Significantly, it seems to go badly for everyone involved: Jack and Chase put their lives on the line as they follow Saunders' henchman Arthur Rabens to a public school where the terrorist intends to release the virus; Tony faces charges of treason for what he did to save Michelle; Kim has to think carefully about her future; and David Palmer, having to deal with the political and personal aftermath of Sherry's death, makes a shattering decision regarding the election.

In a way, this represents a closure of sorts for the series, at least as it looked like in the beginning, since this final hour of Season Three suggests the cast of the next day will be quite different. The last image in itself is less openly shocking than its Day 1 or 2 counterparts, perhaps because the entire episode by its own is worth a hundred cliffhangers. The last on-screen interaction of the season between Sutherland and Haysbert, in particular, truly marks the end of an era. Outstanding
