Did You Know?


CTU obtains video surveillance footage that implicates Jack as President Palmer's assassin, but Jack has an airtight alibi: Just before Palmer's death, he was standing in an oil field (under his assumed name), speaking to a supervisor who'd promised him a chance at some work the next day. All Jack had to do was give his alibi, and he would've been exonerated in Palmer's death. See more »

Deceit And Intrigue
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack and Chloe O'Brian infiltrate Wayne Palmer's penthouse at the hotel in hopes of finding a lead. At the penthouse Wayne Palmer walks in. After Jack manages to convince him of his innocence, Wayne helps Jack look for clues as to why David Palmer was targeted. Jack finds the information that David Palmer possessed that got him killed — a clue leading to Ontario Airport in Los Angeles. Martha tries to convince her husband that she had a conversation with Palmer the night before. As Jack heads to the airport to investigate, Walt Cummings is revealed to be a traitor and his ally — James Nathanson — launches the next phase of his plan at the Ontario Airport.

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

1.President Charles Logan tells Walt Cummings about his wife's alleged conversation with David Palmer. Cummings then offers to investigate the call in order to try to bring her back to reality. When Logan plays the recording to Martha, she insists that the phone call was indeed real, and that the conversation in the recording isn't. Meanwhile, Cummings tells his co-conspirator and boss James Nathanson that he has successfully fabricated and manipulated Martha's call with President Palmer to ensure that there is no evidence on his end about the plan.

2.Chloe O'Brian is accessing CTU servers remotely, but is discovered by Edgar Stiles, who informs Bill Buchanan about it. As Jack sneaks out of Wayne Palmer's apartment, Chloe informs him that Chevensky is a baggage supervisor at Ontario Airport. At this point, Agent Jennings traps Chloe and Jack in the parking garage of the apartment building. Chloe drives the van out of the parking lot and gets captured. As she is being arrested, she tells Bill Buchanan that Jack's innocent.

3.Jack Bauer arrives at Ontario Airport and asks for Chevensky. As he looks for the office, Derek Huxley notices armed men walking inside the airport and runs inside to warn Jack. As Anton Beresch and his men position themselves inside the airport, they set up an explosion outside and take control of the airport. While Jack is distracted by the explosion outside, Chevensky commits suicide by ingesting a cyanide pill before Jack can stop him. Finally, Beresch tells the civilians inside the airport to be quiet and they won't be harmed, as long the President complies with their demands.

In this episode,we get to see things get more intriguing to the point that it becomes more entertaining like Jack getting blamed for the deaths of former President Palmer.Also,we get to realize that the first lady - Martha Logan - did have a conversation with the former President and some men are trying to make sure that it get covered up to avoid suspicions from the end of the current President Charles Logan.In the end,after the season started with a bang in the first hour,deceit and intrigue characterized this next hour of the show.
