Containing The Disease
25 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chappelle's body is taken by three masked men and Bauer is told not to follow, or the virus will be released.

Meanwhile, the President is under a bit of fire after telling higher ups what is going on, and that he decided to comply with the terrorist's demands. That terrorist, Saunders, threatens to release two vials in big cities if he doesn't get a list of about 45 U.S. spies.

Meanwhile, C.T.U. gets a lead on Saunders' daughter, a student in Santa Barbara, and sends Kim up there to impersonate her so that a switch can be made and the terrorist daughter can be interrogated to see if she knows the whereabouts of her father.

The worst part is that the man who escaped from the Chandler Hotel is spreading the disease around but at least he has been located at the ER of an area hospital. However, he came in contact with people in the drug store and with some ER patients who left. The race is on to find them before a full-scale epidemic occurs.

The ending dramatics involve Kim trying to impersonate Saunders' daughter.
