27 Things To Remember From The "24" Series Finale

After going off the grid for four years, Jack is back. But before he returns, let's look back on where we last left Mr. Bauer.

1. Remember Meredith Reed (Jennifer Westfeldt)? She's the journalist who tries to expose that the assassination of Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor), the president of the Islamic Republic of Kamistan (IRK), was ordered by the Russian government.


But President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones) has her arrested to prevent the press from printing the truth. And that starts a string of events in which Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) tries to publicize the huge cover-up.

2. Then, Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin) and President Taylor have a phone conversation about the assassination and how Jack believes the orders to have President Hassan killed came from Mikhail Novakovich (Graham McTavish).


And that despite Charles' attempts to keep her in the dark, President Taylor needs to know that Russian President Yuri Suvarov (Nick Jameson) actually gave the orders. But Charles doesn't realize that Jack is listening to the call and recording him.

3. Jack takes Charles' right-hand man, Jason Pillar (Reed Diamond), hostage in order to gain entry into the United Nations perimeter.


Jack needs to get in undetected in order to set up his sniper rifle to kill President Suvarov as retribution for his crimes.

5. Acting IRK President Dalia Hassan (Necar Zadegan) finds out the Russian government ordered the attack on her husband and President Taylor knew and hid it from her.


And when Dalia tries to back out of the peace treaty, President Taylor threatens to invade the IRK with military force. So, she's basically blackmailing Dalia into signing a peace treaty with the man who killed her husband.

6. Jack (conveniently) finds an empty utility closet to set up a mini CTU office.


He also discovered a duffel bag in the trunk of Jason's car filled with all the equipment he could need.

22. Chloe and Cole are released from holding on orders from President Taylor to find and save Jack. With Arlo Glass (John Boyd), they work on the CTU floor to track down Jack.

24. President Taylor orders the assassin to stand down, remove Jack's handcuffs, and leave the premise.


She's able to get in touch with him so quickly because they tapped into his phone through the drone satellite.

That is, until 24: Live Another Day premieres on Monday, May 5, at 8 p.m. on Fox. Watch a preview here:
