Storyline

On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM, Senator David Palmer calls Alan Opticam from Pentagon to break the protocol of an internal investigation in CTU conducted by Regional Director Ryan Chappelle and have a meeting with Jack Bauer. After clarifying the misunderstand about the incident in the power plant with Jack, the Senator discovers that the attempt is not related to the election process or racism, but just a revenge against the Operation Nightfall, which was ordered by him. They call Robert Ellis in New Orleans and explain that someone close to Victor Drazen seems to have connected David Palmer to Jack Bauer and wants revenge on the day of the second anniversary of Nightfall. Ellis sends a couple of missing files and they disclose that Drazen's wife and daughter were in the bunker that was exploded. Palmer forces Chappelle to reinstate Jack Bauer to his position in a provisional status for the rest of the day. Meanwhile Elizabeth is ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

After Elizabeth asks Alexis, "You would want to come?," he replies, "Yeah, if you want me." The closed captioning then gives her response - "Sure" - which was deleted from the soundtrack. For once, apparently, the audience is expected to draw their own conclusions. See more »

Quotes

Jack Bauer: The reason why I went for that Secret Service agent's gun, sir, was to try and get you out of the room without giving myself away. The people that want you dead, they had kidnapped my family. They threatened to kill them if I didn't assist them in the assassination attempt.

The Real Reason
3 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

We are finally let in on why the bad guys are after Jack, his family, and Palmer. The Presidential run is secondary. It all goes back to Kosovo and a bombing. We also find out that Jack's wife is still deeply hurt be Jack's short fling with Nina (which actually isn't resolved). The women are in a safe house and it appears it is about to be a fortress. Jack and Palmer are allies now but there are forces within CTU that are hard to crack. One of the problems in this show is that every once in a while, we are shown a traitor, but there are no clues up till that point.
