Jack's gone rogue—again! At the stroke of midnight, Jack Bauer abandoned his sidekick Doyle by a chain-link fence and sped off to rescue Audrey alone. Before that, viewers were treated to a lot of clumsy plot machinations and a thrilling press conference.
As part of Slate's Spoiler Special podcast series, we've been hosting regular "post-view" discussions of Season 6 of 24. (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, here for Hour 11, here for Hour 12, here for Hour 13, here for Hour 14, here for Hour 15, here for Hour 16, and here for Hour 17.)
In this podcast, Slate's Rachael Larimore and Julia Turner discuss Vice President Daniels' creepy relationship with his aide Lisa and Wayne's poorly timed collapse. They also debate a listener question: Has there been a drop in 24's quality this year?
Because we reveal plot twists in these chats, we recommend—but don't insist—that you watch the show before listening to the program.
