'The Sky Is Falling'
24 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One key thing that happens here early on puzzles me. Why would Alvers give up his boss? Anyone involved in something of this horrific nature (terrorism) would not identify his boss, but that's what happens here after the C.T.U. produces a possible list of suspects according to a description Alvers gives. Through photos, he then identifies them. What does he get in return? He just wants to be shot instead of dying with the virus. No, it is credible enough.

Anyway, we discover the name a little history of the main villain who is "Stephen Saunders (Paul Blackthorn, who looks just like actor Peter Gallagher), a former British Intelligence man who was presumed dead in a mission in Kosovo in which Jack was involved.

This guy Saunders also reveals what he's up to. The vial in the hotel is a just a warning, a test to show he business with the other 11 vials. His goal is not money, it's power. He tells Bauer to get the President on the phone and he's tells him he (Saunders) will dictate policy in the U.S., not him. What kind of policies? He will get back to us on that. So, the President and the country is being blackmailed by this lunatic unless Jack and the C.T.U. can find this guy and obtain all those virus vials.

The first thing this maniac requests is that the President hold a press conference and use the phrase "The sky is falling."

Later, we see some very dramatic action at the MI-6 building and, a very disturbing request to the President.
