Another Trade
13 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wayne collapses at a press conference, making Daniels acting president. Against the orders of Daniels, Jack ditches his partner Doyle and proceeds alone to negotiate the release of Raines, who is being held captive by Cheng Zhi.

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

1.Jack Bauer contacts Cheng Zhi, who is covertly holding Audrey Raines hostage. Cheng explains to him that what he wants is the FB subcircuit board from the triggering mechanism of one of the Russian suitcase nukes, and claims he will release Audrey Raines if this device is brought to him.

2.Jack Bauer removes the component from one of the suitcase nukes, but is then confronted by Mike Doyle, who has been ordered to stop him. A standoff ensues before Jack is knocked out and Doyle apprehends him. President Wayne Palmer discusses the situation with Jack Bauer. Jack explains he only needs to have the component on him so that he can make the Chinese believe he is willing to go through with the exchange. He promises he will sacrifice his own life to destroy it with explosives after they release Audrey Raines. When Palmer expresses his reluctance to authorize the operation, he responds, "Mr. President...you owe me."

3.Morris O'Brian discovers Chloe O'Brian helped Jack Bauer get the component. He forces her to explain the situation to Bill Buchanan, who then orders her off the operation because he can no longer trust her.

4.While announcing the resolution of the nuclear threat to the press, Wayne Palmer suddenly loses consciousness and collapses. Vice President Noah Daniels is raised to Acting President, and his first act as such is to order that Jack Bauer's operation be aborted.

5.While driving Jack Bauer to his meeting place with Cheng Zhi, Mike Doyle receives orders from Bill Buchanan to bring him back. Realizing this, Jack pulls his gun on Doyle and forces him to pull over. Jack takes the car and drives away, leaving Doyle stranded alongside a freeway.

Here comes another element of 24.A trade with the villain.Apparently,the Chinese are asking for something from the Jack and the CTU in exchange for Audrey Raines.The action remains exciting but not as refreshing for we 24 fans have been familiar with this one before.But still,now we know how serious enemies the Chinese have been.
