Did You Know?


When Larry Moss receives the phone call from Renee Walker about her discovery of the staging base, he calls for two FBI agents, Turner and Charters, to accompany him as he steps into the elevator. This is likely a reference to the episode's director, Brad Turner, and the series director of photography, Rodney Charters. See more »


Since Jack has access to the President when he found out there was going to be a second attack, he should've went directly to the President, she confirms this goof by saying exactly that. See more »


Senator Blaine Mayer: Madam President, I don't care if his source is the Blessed Virgin Mary, nothing justifies what happened in this room.

The Target: The White House
14 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Allison meets with Mayer to discuss Jack's situation, Jack enters the White House to extract the location of Juma's impending attack from Burnett. Chloe erases Burnett's name from Dubaku's list to allow Jack enough time to torture him; however, Janis discovers the deletion, Chloe is arrested, and the Secret Service interrupt the interrogation. Jack is arrested, and Burnett refuses the President's offer of immunity in exchange for the information regarding Juma's target. Meanwhile, Dubaku is discreetly murdered at the hospital. Renee follows the killer to a warehouse on the Potomac, where Juma's strike force is preparing to take a boat to their target. Renee stows away on Juma's boat, damaging her cell phone in the process. She learns that Juma's plan is to invade the White House via a hidden sewer duct accessible from the Potomac. However, she is spotted by one of Juma's men and flees, searching for a way to alert the White House in time.

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

1.Jack Bauer holds Bill Buchanan at gunpoint and informs him of the next attack. He demands to know where Ryan Burnett is and starts torturing him to find what is the target.

2.President Allison Taylor pleads to Jack to stop torturing Burnett. When they break in the room, Taylor orders Jack's arrest and tells him he should've come to her first.

3.General Benjamin Juma reminds Udo that Laurent Dubaku shouldn't know that they had his father killed because of his cowardice. Juma then forbids Laurent of going with his team telling him he has to stay behind to cover them.

4.FBI Agent Renee Walker informs Larry Moss of Juma's preparation. Renee boards the boat and finds out the next target is the White House. As she is trying to escape, she is pursued by Laurent. Meanwhile, Juma and his men start drilling underwater to reach the White House.

This is definitely a refreshing element of 24 - the White House will be attacked by General Benjamin Duma,who now is the villain that Jack and Renee will be up against after Dubako has been murdered.Will they succeed or not?We'll find out in the next episode.
