The fight for terrorism continues as Jack Bauer heads to the U.S. Embassy as the CIA who hunts for him is getting closer. Last Monday’s episode features the reunion of Jack and Chloe as the show takes a breather from its fast paced action and slows down to catch up on two long-time colleagues who always there for each other.
Now on its fourth episode, “24: Live Another Day” features Jack played by Kiefer Sutherland as he gets to know the enemy. Just like the original “24” series, the new show also features villains that will lead Jack to the true mastermind as he tries to save the world one hour at a time.
The official synopsis reads: “With the threat escalating, Jack Bauer heads to the U.S. Embassy as the CIA closes in on him. Elsewhere, Margot (guest star Michelle Fairly) asserts her authority with unthinkable force, President Heller faces members of Parliament and Kate Morgan takes matters into her own hands in the all-new "Day 9: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM" episode of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY airing Monday, May 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.”
Now that there is so much at stake, Jack needs all the help he can get but it seems everywhere he goes everybody has their own agenda. Thanks to Chloe who warned Jack about Adrian’s plan, Jack is trying to paste all evidence about Simone Al-Harazi (Emily Berrington) and her mother Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley).
After the events of the show’s eighth season, Jack Bauer is still a federal fugitive and this time he is running on the streets of London. Premiered on May 5, the Fox new series is set four years after the “24” season 8 finale.
“The response to 24 is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before. To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend,” says Sutherland as he reprise his role as Jack Bauer in an interview with Hitflix. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off.”
