President Charles Logan Is Odd
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vladimir Bierko kills Erwich, angry that he wasted a canister of gas. Jack is contacted by James Nathanson, Cummings' middleman and goes to meet him. However the terrorists having discovered their deception send a team to eliminate him. Nathanson is killed but Jack manages to fight off the terrorists and obtains a data chip from Nathanson before he dies.

Chloe finds the name Omicron Corporation on the chip, to whose CEO Jack has ties. McGill, faltering under enormous pressure, goes on a warpath at CTU, firing personnel and detaining Buchanan.

Bierko demands the Suvarovs' motorcade route from Logan, threatening to release more of the Sentox nerve gas if he refuses. Martha demands Logan to stand up to the terrorists but he refuses. In an attempt to force the President to call back the motorcade and save the Suvarovs, Martha decides to go with them to the airport.

In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:

1.Jack Bauer is contacted by James Nathanson who wants protection. After meeting in the middle of a shoot-out, Nathanson gives Jack a computer chip.

2.At CTU, Chloe O'Brian manages to decrypt the chip online which leads Jack to Omicron International, a company led by Christopher Henderson, a man Bauer knows. Meanwhile, Lynn McGill puts Bill Buchanan in holding after feeling his authority was threatened.

3.Vladimir Bierko kills Ivan Erwich for wasting a Sentox nerve gas canister, and almost ruining his plans.

4.President Charles Logan is contacted by Bierko, who demands him to hand over the route of Russian President Yuri Suvarov's motorcade, regardless of the First Lady Martha Logan protests. Eventually, Martha enters the Suvarov's motorcade, despite Aaron Pierce's insistence, who ends up joining her.

President Charles Logan is getting to be suspicious as the hours go by.First,he was willing to release a canister of Sentox Nerve Gas and now he is willing to cooperate with the Russian separatist group who is asking for Russian President Suvarov's car route.Can he really be counted among the good guys or is he possibly a villain? But who knows.Definitely,one must already be suspicious with his odd actions.

That definitely becomes part of the web of deceit and intrigue that has so far characterized Day 5.
