Best Episode Of Day 5
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack meets Christopher Henderson at Omicron who has some history with Jack — Henderson was formerly head of CTU Field Ops and recruited Jack until Jack turned whistle-blower on Henderson after discovering evidence of corruption. Henderson initially protests his innocence and helps Jack, however this was all an act and Jack narrowly escapes death when Henderson attempts to cover his tracks with a bomb. Having detected evidence indicating a possible attack on the Suvarovs' motorcade, Audrey goes to McGill, who dismisses it as a unsubstantiated threat and refuses to devote anymore manpower to warn Secret service.

Audrey, Chloe and Edgar go behind McGill's back to warn Secret Service but are discovered by McGill who is about to have them removed from their posts for insubordination until Audrey convinces Manning to have McGill removed instead. Curtis does this and reinstates Buchanan.

Secret Service are warned just as Bierko's men attack the Suvarovs' motorcade. Thanks to the timely intervention of Aaron Pierce, the Suvarovs survive the attack.

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

1.Jack Bauer talks with Audrey Raines who informs him that Omicron International made the Sentox for the military. At Jack's request, she confirms that Christopher Henderson works for Omicron, and he tells her Henderson worked for CTU and was the one who recruited him, before things ended badly between them. When Jack confronts Henderson at his office, he takes him to a bunker in the company, where he shows Jack information on Omicron's Sentox program. However, Henderson deceivingly leaves Jack trapped in the bunker with a bomb. On his way out, he calls an associate to assure her that CTU doesn't have enough information to hurt them, and that Bauer will be dead in a minute. Inside the bunker, Jack uses the bomb to blow the door open, while he hides under the floor.

2.At Counter Terrorist Unit, Chloe O'Brian tells Lynn McGill of a possible attack on President Yuri Suvarov's motorcade. McGill ignores her warning and angrily says that the Sentox is still top priority, and he won't have anyone working on false threats. As a result, Audrey convinces Curtis Manning to invoke Section 112 since she believes McGill is mentally unfit to run CTU. Curtis then has McGill placed in a holding cell.

3.President Charles Logan is informed by Mike Novick that his wife Martha is riding in the Suvarov's motorcade. Charles calls Martha and tries to convince her of getting out of the limousine, arguing that he has to allow the terrorists to attack the motorcade, or they'll release more nerve gas. When the motorcade is attacked, Aaron Pierce calls for backup. Although several Secret Service agents are killed, Pierce manages to gun down the last attackers. With Suvarov still alive,

4.Vladimir Bierko calls President Logan and tells him that if Russia isn't going to pay with the life of its president, then its new ally, the United States, will pay with the lives of its citizens.

This is one action-packed episode.Words aren't enough to describe the fun and entertainment brought about by this hour.Watch it and see it for yourself.Arguably,this is the best episode of Day 5.
