The senator is due to be hit, Jack, of the CIA Counter-Terrorist Unit, is trying to prevent it but knows that there is a mole in his office so has problems about who he can trust.

Also his daughter has been kidnapped, apparently by the terrorists. She is the one in the car boot at the end tonight, alive.
Not the body in another car.

Her girl-friend is in hospital following a car accident. Girl-friends father and Jack's wife are at the hospital.

The first four episodes were repeated Saturday evening on BBC2, from nine to midnight. They may come up on BBC Choice sometime.

Well summarised dantony !

Isn't it a great prog ?!

P.S. Am I the only one who thinks that the girl's father (the one knocked down) is "in" on it also ? Don't forget he contacted Jack's wife and not the other way round in the very 1st episode !!!!

Scary eh ?!

I see the X-Files is back in top form again following "24" ! That parasite/worm thing in Scully's back was GROSS

Mega, that official site is good, once you've sorted it out, it is somewhat more detailed than my summary.

They give the story forwards in the Episode Guide and backwards in the Character Guide.

Unless you have a good (or free) supply of ink and paper it is best not to print the guides, I tried just one episode, it took two pages to print out the 4:00 to 5:00am Episode Guide.

Thanks for finding it.

This any help ? (taken from http://www.fox.com/24/ )

4:00 to 5:00 A.M.

4:02 A.M.
Teri and Alan York barge into the operating room of St. Mark's Hospital to find Janet on the operating table. Jack, following the sqaud car carrying Penticoff, gets the news about Janet from Teri. He too is on the hunt for Kimberly, and will report back to Teri when he knows more. Meanwhile, Dan and Rick stash the tied-up Kim into Gaines' car. Gaines orders them to pick up their money at his compound. Although Rick doesn't trust Gaines, Dan convinces his friend to finish the job.

4:07 A.M.
With hours to go before the California Primary, no one in Palmer's hotel suite campaign headquarters is able to sleep. Palmer's intention of telling Nicole about the network's allegations against Keith bothers Sherry. Yet when Nicole is brimming with excitement over the upcoming day, Palmer doesn't have the heart to ruin his daughter's current happiness.

4:09 A.M.
Jack asks Nina to contact the CTU's police liason for help in getting to Penticoff. With her online access denied, she must ask Tony for the number. Tony, still suspicious of Jack, questions why Nina hasn't lost faith in their boss.

4:11 A.M.
At the Van Nuys police station, Jack persuades the Desk Seargant to let him talk to Penticoff. Mason cuts him off at the pass, hoping to rein in what he thinks is a rogue agent.

4:16 A.M.
Dan and Rick argue about handing off Kim to Gaines. Rick is worried for Kim's welfare, but Dan believes she may already have been killed.

Jack tells Mason that Walsh lead him to Penticoff. He thinks the suspect may be vital to the Palmer assassination attempt. If something does happen to Palmer, Mason could be implicated for impeding the investigation. Mason agrees to interrogate Penticoff himself.

As Gaines drives, Kim tries to send a help signal to a driver stopped next to the car. Gaines threatens her with a gun and locks her in the trunk.

4:19 A.M.
Palmer phones network anchor Maureen Kingsley to arrange a meeting in a private hotel conference room.

4:21 A.M.
Teri and York are being questioned by a police officer in the hospital waiting room when Jack phones. He tells her that a man being held might have seen Kim, and he urges Teri to talk to Janet as soon as she's out of surgery. Then Mason tells Jack that Penticoff is asking for him. As Mason and the other agents watch from the observation room, Jack mumbles something to Penticoff that can't be heard by Mason. Penticoff flies off the handle, and tells Jack to go to hell. Jack grabs Penticoff by the hair and sticks his hand into the suspect's mouth. The agents pull Jack off, and Penticoff demands his right to a phone call.

4:23 A.M.
Jack leaves the interrogation room and darts into an empty corridor. Penticoff is led to a phone bay, where he removes a tiny slip of paper from his mouth. He dials the number written on it, getting Jack's cell phone. Penticoff says that some "guys" who have Kimberly will be calling at a phone on San Fernando Road. If he is not there to answer, it will be too late to save her. He tells Jack he'd better get him out.

4:25 A.M.
Jack phones Nina to search for phone lines at the 18166 San Fernando Road address. She finds a nearby pay phone that is in service, and Jack asks her to set up an illegal trace.

4:29 A.M.
In the station hallway, Jack approaches Phillips, the officer partnered with Jessie Hampton before she was killed. Phillips agrees to let Jack talk to Penticoff, opening up the cell with his access card. Penticoff and Jack exchange angry words, and Phillips lunges at Jack to restrain him. As other officers subdue Jack, Penticoff is left holding Phillips' cell access card. When the coast is clear, Penticoff lets himself out.

4:36 A.M.
Maureen Kingsley meets with Palmer in the hotel. Since they have a friendly history, he asks why she is doing this to him. Not only does she have testimony from the therapist, George Ferragamo, but she produces a document from an emergency room list with a signature of Edward Johnson. The scratches on Lyle Gibson's body had been blamed on Nicole fighting back against her rapist. However, an African American teenage boy checked into a hospital near the murder site with the same marks. The signature for Edward Johnson matches Keith's handwriting. Palmer is appalled, telling Maureen to do whatever she has to do. "Just be prepared to accept the consequences," he threatens.

4:41 A.M.
Palmer wakes his son, Keith, and asks him about the night after Nicole's rape. Keith refuses to answer, but says that someone had to deal with it since Palmer was out of town. Palmer is enraged, but senses he's pushed Keith as far as he can. He leaves his son's room.

4:43 A.M.
At the police station, Officer Phillips realizes his access card is missing. Mason checks the security camera, which shows Jack and Penticoff leaving the building together. He has his team track Jack on the satellite.

Teri bares her soul to York, telling him about a fight she had with Kim. He promises to stay with her until they find her daughter.

4:47 A.M.
Jack brings Penticoff to the phone booth on San Fernando Road. Although Nina is tracking the pay phone, a cell phone inside the booth rings instead and Nina can't trace its frequency. Penticoff takes the call from Gaines, who directs him to dispose of a body in a trunk of a car. There are car keys inside the phone booth. Jack is worried that it may be Kimberly in the trunk.

4:54 A.M.
Jack and Penticoff find the car, but the body inside is an unidentified man. Suddenly, Mason and a group of agents surround them. Jack points out that the body is somehow connected to the hit on Palmer. Jack admits that there may be someone inside CTU involved in that assassination attempt, and he appeals to Mason for help. Mason lets Jack go, taking Penticoff back to prison. Jack drives the car to CTU to identify the body in the trunk.

4:57 A.M.
Teri updates Jack on Janet's status. He says that he's on his way to the hospital.

4:59 A.M.
Gaines pulls up to his compound, and Rick is relieved to see Kim still alive. Dan admits to not actually killing Janet, and Gaines shoots him. With Dan dead, Gaines tells Rick that he's been promoted.

At the hospital, Janet's heart monitor flatlines in surgery. York and Teri watch helplessly from outside.

Wow! Quite an effort, Mega.

So what's been happening in Coronation Street lately?

I haven't seen it since the 15th February 1983.

That was a dirty trick by the BBC tonight, they had episode 6 on BBC2, then at the end said the 7th episode was starting immediately on BBC Choice.

So now I've got to wait two weeks for the 8th episode or hope that they show it on Choice next week.

Or go to the Fox site and read it all, save having to watch any more.

Did they really put the next episode on BBC Choice? I watched it and never heard them say that. It's still on BBC2 on Sunday at usual time! I thinks it's brilliant. What a great actor Keiffer Sutherland is

Yes, they really did, they announced it just after the end of episode 6, in time to switch over for episode 7.

I've just checked, they are doing the same on Sunday 14th, ep.7 at 22:15 to 23:00 on BBC2 and ep.8 on BBC Choice at 23:00 to 23:45.

I agree, Kiefer is doing well in this, I haven't always liked him but he's improving with age.

Tebbie, you don't need to worry about spoiling, we can do it quite easily on the Fox site, as Mega pointed out.

I'm surprised that over there is only about six episodes ahead, I thought that the difference was usually in months or years.

Hope all goes well in court for you and that it's not too difficult to sort the rest out.

I must get around to dealing with some things, it's eleven years and five days since my wife died and I still haven't changed my will.

Well, that was a messy end to Episode 9.

There are 15 episodes to go still, will anybody be left at the end?

I'm starting to weaken, I keep thinking about having a look at the Fox site to see what happens next.

Has anybody succumbed to the temptation yet?

Be honest!

Even though I posted the link to the official 24 site, I haven't cheated yet and "looked ahead" on the episode guide... naughty naughty - do not do it anyone ! It will spoil your enjoyment of things, okay !

Speaking of spoiling our enjoyment, it's not on BBC2 next week (5th May) due to the bloody live Snooker final... Grrrr

Thumbs up *** Spoiler warning alert ***

You see ! You see ! THIS is what happens when you can't resist temptation and nip back to the "24" site.....

Do NOT read further if you didn't see last Sunday's episode (28th May)

.
.
.


Now, I knew she was dead, and so does anyone else who watched last Sunday's episode, but to anyone visiting the site (as I have just done) to read the character profiles, they're gonna have their curiousity squashed by a rather large lead balloon !

As soon as I saw "DECEASED" emblazened across her picture I quit the site..... what if I had clicked on another character profile and it also said that ?

Well, serves me right for looking you might say ?

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
