It's cocktail hour this week on 24—5 p.m. to 6 p.m.—but not even Morris is drinking. In this episode, Tom Lennox turned in the would-be presidential assassins (and himself), and Jack Bauer tortured the Russian consul with a cigar cutter.

As part of Slate's Spoiler Special podcast series—recently expanded to include TV shows—we've been 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, here for Hour 7, here for Hours 8 and 9, here for Hour 10, and here for Hour 11.) In this podcast, Slate's Meghan O'Rourke and Julia Turner discuss Lennox's predicament, explain what really happened in the consulate, and ask: Are Jack and CTU growing apart?

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