This week's episode of 24 depicts the hour between noon and 1 p.m.—a time of revelations, double-crossings, and still more Bauer family drama.

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, and here for Hour 6.) In this one, Slate's Meghan O'Rourke, June Thomas, and Julia Turner discuss the questions of the hour, including: Is someone in the executive branch even more ruthless than Tom Lennox? Are Jack and his brother Graem two peas in a pod? And are the show's writers juggling too many subplots?

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