Did You Know?

Goofs

While on the phone with Logan, Graem mentions the damage that would be done to the country by a sitting president on trial for the murder of another president. Though not technically a law, an unwritten understanding is that, while in office, the president can't be indicted for crimes he commits; he would first need to be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office by the Senate. And if Logan were removed, he thus wouldn't be a sitting president; immediately upon his conviction, his vice president, Hal Gardner, would be sworn in as president. See more »

Quotes

Christopher Henderson: [to Jack, who is interrogating Christpher Henderson about his involvement in the Sentox nerve gas plot] "What I did was in the interests of the destiny of this country, and I'm not talking about the version you read on the op-ed pages of the New York Times, I'm talking about the politics of survival. The way the world really works."

Why Isn't That Recording Protected Better
1 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a great episode. Jack's actions on board the plane are incredible. But CTU is so sloppy. There is another fox in the henhouse. That guy that was a friend of Karen's has decided that he will take over. Why isn't there someone right there with Chloe, watching her back? The President was on the very brink when a call came. There is so much set up for the end it is remarkable. One of the better of all the episodes on what is probably the best of the five seasons.
