Graeme lives in Indian Falls, which is at least an 8 hour drive from Los Angeles. Jack makes it there by car in about 20 minutes. See more »
Gray, people in this country are dying, and I need some information. Now are you are going to give it to me, or do I have to start hurting you?
Actually, you're hurting me now.
Trust me. I'm not.

Jack's back on hour 5 of 24. He has new incentive to fight, which is great. So after helping a couple of civilians get their helicopter out of a house he is back on the road with CTU. Back at HQ Assad is being questioned about his knowledge of all the situations that are going on. I mean there are still four nukes out there we think. A few names are thrown around and we finally have a lead for Jack.
Here's the twist. Our newest suspect happens to be Jack's father, Phillip Bauer. Wow! I didn't see that coming. It's far fetched to believe that now the only guy who can really fight terrorist was brought up by one, but we'll have to wait and see if the writers can pull it off. Jack gives a ring to his Dad and gets stonewalled. But it turns out Jack has a brother. And it's someone we know from season five. Graham "Gray" Bauer was given to us in the late hours of Day 5. He leads a group of Bluetooth Bandits in the basement of some facility. An odd fact about the brothers are that they are both on opposing sides of good and that during season five Graham Bauer had a telephone relationship with, then president Charles Logan, the same way that Jack Bauer does with the current president, Wayne Palmer.
We find out that Jack's brother and father both regret not killing Jack and that they are responsible for him behind kidnapped by the Chinese. With the chance of Jack's father being a suspect in a terrorist plot Jack has all he needs to get even with his kin because I'm sure he is wise to their disloyalties. The show ends with a torture seen in the office of Graham and leaves us wondering what does Jack's estranged family have to do with the purchasing of nukes. Even more will Jack kill his brother? I think not yet. But he will. I'm sure Phillip Bauer will show up soon. Hopefully we can close the gaps soon.
Not a whole lot else went on tonight. Fayed needs a new part for his bombs to work and we find out who he is dealing with to get the hardware. Walid al-Rezani is now an FBI insider while being incarcerated. I believe that to go sour real soon. The president is in a bunker and has sent for Assad to go there. So I guess next week we will have a very calm flight from LA to Washington. Even in the fighter jet it is like a half hour. No? That's one of the problems with show. Continuity needs all the integrity it can acquire. Although they do not leave many questions they do make it far less believable. That is fine because I'm not looking for someone I can relate to in 24. I will leave that up to The Office.
