If longtime “24” fans know one thing, it is that “the United States does not negotiate with terrorists.”
In the closing moments of last week’s “24: Live Another Day,” however, President Heller appeared to be doing just that. Heller confirmed that he would be willing to surrender himself to Margot if she agrees to call off the planned drone strike.
Was it a bluff? Or is Heller, aware of his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, willing to die to prevent the death of thousands? And what will Jack Bauer, whose help Heller started to enlist at the end of last week’s “24: Live Another Day,” have to say about the plan?
And if it is not a bluff, should viewers not also concern themselves with the opinion of his daughter Audrey?
These answers–and more–are delivered in Monday’s 200th edition of “24.” Screened for critics this past week, the action-packed episode is summarized by FOX’s official synopsis:
Jack Bauer and President Heller endure the unthinkable to thwart the terror attacks of mastermind Margot Al-Harazi (guest star Michelle Fairley). Meanwhile, CIA agent Jordan Reed faces a life-or-death struggle and Kate takes drastic measures to track down Margot before it’s too late in the all-new “Day 9: 6:00 PM-7:00 PM” episode of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY airing Monday, June 16
