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.

A Miracle But, Yeech, Somebody Has Gas!
11 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Well, we get the first big last-second miracle get-out-of-an-impossible jam situation, this one at the Ontario Airport where the terrorists are foiled. I was sorry to see the main villain, "Anton Beresch" (David Dayan Fisher) killed. I thought he was kind of cool and would make a good guy to combat for most of the show....but he's history. How all of the above happens, I'll leave it up to you to watch, if you're still interested.

Meanwhile, in three huge developments, President Logan and Soviet leader Savarov sign their anti-terrorist alliance; we discover something really big is in the work - far bigger than the airport situation, and it looks like cannisters of poison or gas - and, finally the First Lady is chloroformed by Cummings and the President's Chief Of Staff takes information from her bra!

The most interesting new person now involved in the story is Lynn McGill, played by Sean Astin of "Lord Of The Rings." Yes, it's good ole "Sam" now with a suit-and-tie and looking very professional. He's there to oversee the operation, from the White House perspective. CTU boss Bill Buchanan isn't thrilled, but he's gracious and things work out. The only rude person is Chloe; who else?
