This week's two-hour "television event" covered 1 p.m to 3 p.m. The first hour was a classic action-packed episode replete with a car chase, a dastardly White House plot, and a display of Jack Bauer's unflappability. In the 2 o'clock hour, we saw Chloe O'Brian's motivational techniques, met the superterrorist pulling Fayed's strings, and discovered that Philip Bauer is more cold-hearted than even last week's episode suggested.

As part of Slate's Spoiler Special podcast series—recently expanded to include TV shows—we'll be hosting regular "post-view" discussions of Season 6. (Click here to listen to a discussion of the first four hours, here for a discussion of Hour 5, here for Hour 6, and here for Hour 7.) In this one, Slate's Rachael Larimore, June Thomas, and Julia Turner wonder if Tom Lennox is a bad egg; discuss the New Yorker article about 24's depiction of torture; and consider whether Milo is a mole.

Because we reveal plot twists in these chats, we recommend—but don't insist—that you watch the show before listening to the program.
