When Bill was talking to Jack on the phone, Lynn McGill was there and heard Jack saying duress code "Flank 2". He could have warned CTU immediately, not just before the assault. See more »


Chloe O'Brian: This Lynn McGill person is really slowing things down.
Spenser Wolff: Yeah, that's his style. I worked with him once before. He usually loses about twenty percent of his staff in the first couple of days after taking control of a new office.
Chloe O'Brian: That many people quit?
Spenser Wolff: No. Most of them were fired.

Turning Out To Be The Best Season Ever
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack is captured by the terrorists, who use Derek Huxley as leverage to force him to compromise CTU's assault team by misinforming Curtis of the terrorist's position. Logan refuses to give in to the terrorists' demands and signs the treaty along with President Suvarov. Jack manages to communicate a duress signal but CTU initially do not recognize it as it is a defunct code from when Jack was active.

Martha continues to try to convince her husband that the phone call from Palmer was real, but Cummings interferes, incapacitating her and stealing her copy of the phone transcript.

A new representative from Division, Lynn McGill arrives at CTU and begins to undermine Bill Buchanan's authority. McGill however, detects the duress signal and manages to warn Curtis, who is able to reposition his teams and outflank the terrorists.

Beresch's men are killed and Beresch kills himself rather than be captured. Jack identifies a sleeper amongst the hostages and CTU begin their search for him. It turns out that a further objective of the attack on the airport was to provide the sleeper with an access card to a secure storage facility in one of the airport's hangars.

In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:

1.President Charles Logan watches as Anton Beresch, who has grown impatient, executes a second hostage. Beresch threatens to continue killing more innocent people, unless Logan retracts from the Anti- terrorism treaty with Russia. This causes Logan to have doubts about it.

2.Martha Logan talks to Evelyn about the proof she found of her conversation with David Palmer. Evelyn tries to convince her of telling the President, but Martha decides to hide the document in her blouse and wait. Later, Walt Cummings attacks Martha from behind, leaving her unconscious, and stealing the document.

3.At Counter Terrorist Unit, Lynn McGill and Bill Buchanan talk coordinate their efforts against the hostage crisis, while Curtis Manning finishes preparing the explosives for the raid. Lynn then asks Bill to take Jack into custody so he can debrief him.

4.Jack Bauer talks to Diane Huxley about her son, Derek, being in the middle of the hostage situation. After Jack surrenders, he tries to reassure Derek that it wasn't his fault and that things weren't over. After CTU successfully raids the airport, Jack informs Curtis about a hostage with a yellow tie who might be working with the terrorists. Jack offers to help, but Curtis tells him he has orders to take him to CTU.

5.Meanwhile, Ivan Erwich sneaks to a hangar behind the airport where he meets with a second team of terrorists. Erwich then uses the key card Beresch gave him to unlock a container underground, revealing 20 biohazard canisters of Sentox nerve gas.

The action intensifies as Jack is captured by the terrorists and President Logan has no intention of giving in to the demands of the terrorists as the signing of the arms treaty with Russia is going to go on as scheduled.Expect more action to come and more excitement and entertainment as we 24 fans are treated to which is turning out to be the best season of the TV series ever.
