To listen to Slate's Spoiler Special about Hour 17 of Season 6 of 24, click the arrow button on the player below:
It's 10 p.m. Do you know where your story lines are? Lots of action and lots of closure this hour—President Wayne Palmer explored the "Psych!" school of international relations, Tom Lennox learned a lot, and Fayed found a really convenient gassed-up trash truck. And then, at 10:55, someone hit the Reset button.
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, and here for Hour 16.)
In this podcast, Slate's Meghan O'Rourke, June Thomas, and Julia Turner ask if they enjoyed Jack Bauer's brawl with Fayed just a little too much, wonder if we'll ever hear Chloe O'Brian's voice again, and share some of the best listener suggestions for the name of that mysterious country Fayed grew up in.
Because we reveal plot twists in these chats, we recommend—but don't insist—that you watch the show before listening to the program.
