It's 1 a.m., and folks are getting tired. People start telling the truth, and sometimes the truth hurts. Secretary Heller has some very harsh words for Jack Bauer; Chloe crosses a line with Morris; and Vice President Daniels discovers something very disturbing about Lisa.
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, here for Hour 17, here for Hour 18, and here for Hour 19.)
In this podcast, Slate's Rachael Larimore and June Thomas discuss Daniels' surprising transformation and Jack's alarming history with women. They also tell some truths of their own: They're ready for this day to be over!
Because we reveal plot twists in these chats, we recommend—but don't insist—that you watch the show before listening to the program.
