To listen to Slate's Spoiler Special about the sixth hour of Season 6 of 24, click the arrow button on the player below:
This week's episode of 24 depicts the hour between 11 a.m. and noon—an hour filled, it turns out, with dreary exposition, policy debates staged with clunky formality, and a few hints of juicy family drama.
As part of Slate's Spoiler Special podcast series—recently expanded to include television shows—we'll be hosting regular "post-view" discussions of Season 6. (Click here to listen to a discussion of the first four hours, and here for a discussion of Hour 5.) In this one, Slate's Meghan O'Rourke, Troy Patterson, and Julia Turner discuss the pressing questions raised by the episode, among them: Is Nadia evil? How will Karen get to Los Angeles? And does Jack have a thing for his brother's wife?
Because we reveal plot twists in these chats, we recommend—but don't insist—that you watch the show before listening to the program.
