Goofs

As Gael is being interrogated by Chappelle in Interrogation Room 820, the interior room camera shot shows that the room door is in the process of being opened from the outside. As the camera shot changes to the exterior of the interrogation room, Tony approaches the room with Michelle, he instructs the security guard who is posted outside the interrogation room to open the door, and, as he does so, the camera pans and reveals that the door is still fully closed.

Another mole

Further complexities ensue as the second fourth of 24's third year (or day) begins: orders are violated, allegiances are put into discussion, and the stakes are, as always, sky-high.

It all kicks off with Kim learning her colleague Gael Ortega (Jesse Borrego) has been working for Hector Salazar (something we, the audience, have known since the end of Episode 2) and her being unable to ask for help, especially since Tony is still in a hospital recovering from a recent injury. Elsewhere in town, Chase has decided to go rogue and look for Jack, who is doing everything he can to keep Ramon from killing him during their journey to Mexico.

The double agent or classic traitor is a classic element of the thriller genre, and every season of 24 seems to have its own take on the subject, with characters ranging from Nina Myers to Sherry Palmer. The inclusion of yet another unreliable person may be a contrivance by now, but the show's writers know how to make this kind of narrative choice fresh and interesting. In fact, the end of the episode presents us with one of the best set-ups in the series' history, and the best part is, no one saw it coming.
