24 Episode Recap: 11:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. Season 8, Episode 17

In this hour, Jack goes further than ever in his quest for revenge, and another 24 villain bites the dust.

This episode picks up right where the last left off, in the middle of Dalia Hassan's United Nations press conference announcing her decision to take her late husband's place and ensure the peace agreement is signed.

If there's an opposite of the U.N. building, it's the dank warehouse where private security company agent Mark Bledsoe (D.B. Sweeney) is currently giving Walsh the water board treatment. And when she won't talk, the advice he offers is chilling, but also darkly funny (if you have a sick sense of humor). "Take short and shallow breaths. You'll recover faster. That way we won't have so much downtime between sessions."

24 Episode Recap: 9:00 A.M.-10:00 A.M. Season 8, Episode 15

As the hour opens, Jack is a complete mess, and understandably so — he just saw Renee shot to death and is now wandering around the ER wearing a shirt stained with her blood. Thankfully, one of the doctors takes the initiative to grab him a new shirt and a pair of boots for his bare feet.

Once Chloe calls to offer her condolences, though, Jack snaps back into being Jack, demanding to see the recently MIA Papa Bazhaev, who is currently CTU's only lead. Chloe isn't quite so willing to circumvent the official channels and processes now that she's running CTU, but she ultimately relents and tells Jack where Bazhaev's bail hearing is being held (which, unsurprisingly, he's denied).

While the terrorists prepare to make their big move, Jack tries to get President Hassan and his family to a safer location — though that's easier said than done.

Premise: An exciting and edgy real-time action series about U.S. counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer trying to save his country from foreign and domestic enemies in the course of 24 grueling hours (with each hour a separate episode). The series took a great concept and executed it superbly, juggling taut storylines with forceful performances and a stylish, gritty look. Which made it easier to forgive some of the more foolish and implausible subplots, many involving Jack's crisis-magnet daughter, Kim.
