Did You Know?


Ford, the primary sponsor of the premiere, incorporated 24 and the character of Jack Bauer into the two-part commercial that aired before and after this episode. Although Kiefer Sutherland did not appear, nor did any other 24 actor, the commercial featured a Jack Bauer look-alike, foreign spies, a secret tracker, money and a car chase that involved the Ford F-150. Jack Bauer was not mentioned by name, but the commercial was clearly meant to compliment 24 without stepping on any toes. See more »


There's a non-realtime camera cut, at least in the non-commercial version that originally aired - Jack and his partner pull away from the prison and then the scene transitions immediately and directly to them already driving on the highway and talking about the body at the NIH building.

Three years have passed since the near fatal chemical attack on President Palmer. During this time, Jack has been embedded in a drug cartel where he was abused and injured. He has brought in a big fish, but this guy has a lot of power and now a potential viral attack on Los Angeles and the possible death of a million people is in the offing. Once again we are introduced to characters that have been added, particularly Chloe, who will be playing a big part in the series. Kim is back but is working for the agency. One guy in particular resents her position. He feels that she is only working there because of Jack. We find a bit of a secret at the end of the episode.
