Unfortunately, before the deal is made, she is tortured and overdosed with near-fatal amounts of liquid copper, which not only traumatizes her but leaves her in a half-paralyzed, HeroicBSOD'd state, and proving that the BigBad is DangerouslyGenreSavvy. By the end of the season, she's recovering at home and Jack Bauer promises her father to step away so he can no longer be a danger to her, with the silent clock running at the end of the episode to honor his sacrifice.]]

* FollowTheLeader: Ubisoft's ''VideoGame/SplinterCell'' series predates ''24'' by several years. However, there was a period where the series stalled after the release of ''VideoGame/SplinterCellDoubleAgent'', and there were a lot of [[DevelopmentHell false starts and schedule difficulties]] getting the next game released. When it finally did come out as ''VideoGame/SplinterCellConviction'', series main character Sam Fisher had been [[ReTool retooled]] to make him more like Jack Bauer, with a more [[DarkerAndEdgier aggressive and uncompromising]] personality, [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique interactive interrogation scenes]], and more emphasis on [[ActionGame gunfighting]] over its previous focus of [[StealthBasedGame pure stealth]].
** Splinter Cell came out after ''24'', actually. The show debuted in 2001, while the first game was released a year later in 2002.
** Speaking of games, one of the descriptions of Commander Shepard in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series described him as being "Jack Bauer in Space," and, especially if portrayed as a Renegade, can be a very similar anti-hero to Jack; such as pulling some nasty interrogation techniques and willing to take vengeance into his own hands if necessary. Interestingly enough, in a pretty bizarre coincidence, [[spoiler:Raphael Sbarge's character in the sixth season of the show was killed after being caught ground zero in a nuclear explosion. In the first Mass Effect, which was released at the end of the same year season 6 came out, Sbarge's character Kaiden Alenko can potentially suffer the exact same fate]].
