* If you ever want to commit some act of terrorism, the best way to cover up your secret and overly complex plan is to first attract the undivided attention of your worst antagonist. On purpose. That is called "diversion".

[[WMG: The whole series is just clever political misinformation/propaganda for the masses]]
Watchers of the show are known to be indoctrinated with certain "truths":
* Terrorism in a legit way to prevent Terrorism.
* Urination is overrated. Real Americans can live without it.

[[WMG: 9/11 was to promote the show.]]
Of all the conspiracy theories, whether it be Bush helping Elvis fake his death so his alien buddies can help or it was actually Vince McMahon to use pro America pro military wrestling this makes the most sense. Fox committed the terrorist attacks so everyone would be all for anti terrorism, then they make the show center on torturing and killing terrorists.

Season 8: She uses the remains of Wilson's group to become the new most powerful ManBehindTheMan and keeps the organization alive. Only now, due to the loss of favor with the American government due to Taylorís capture of Wilson himself, Mandy is forced to shift the new groupís allegiance to the Russian government. Because the peace treaty of Allison Taylor and Omar Hassan would hurt the groupís profits, Mandy plans to kill Hassan herself and ruin the treaty. Deciding to play it safe, she instead hires Davros to do it for her. This, once again, proves to be the smart move when Jack gets involved again. When Renee is killed and Jack begins his RoaringRampageofRevenge, Mandy is smart enough to stay out of it and uses Logan as a fall guy again. She knows how much Jack hates him, so she gets him back in favor with Taylorís administration via Ethan, promising public redemption which she knew Logan would be too egotistical to turn down. However, this was actually insurance for herself and her group, because she knew that Loganís attempts to cover up Russian involvement would get Jack off of her trail and back onto his. From here she uses VillainExitStageLeft again to screw Logan and save herself.

Live Another Day: Mandy, continuing to work with the Russian government, still intends to capture Jack Bauer to ensure that he never interferes with her plans again. She helps Margot Al-Harazi go after President Heller, because she remembered the friendship that he and Audrey had with Jack, and counted on Jack leaving his state of hiding once again to save them. This goes exactly as she planned, except Jack kills Al-Harazi too early. To stall for time, she brings in Cheng Zhi, who she recently helped break out of jail, to work with Stolnavich to carry out his crazy plans of revenge. However this was really only meant to stall for time, which works and keeps Jack in the open long enough to get him captured by the Russian government and therefore into the hands of Mandyís group.

Legacy: Mandy works with Bin-Khalid to start a conflict with the U.S. and therefore increase her profits. She uses Khasan and Amira Dubayev as personal agents to enter his group. Though Bin-Khalidís plot fails, it does make her aware of a new agent that could be a potential threat: Eric Carter. She will continue to antagonize him from behind the scenes.

[[WMG: Mandy is actually the BigBad of the whole series and involved in every single plot.]]

Here would be her side of the timeline.

Before Season 1: Mandy is the younger sister of Nina Myers. Nina teaches her all about the art of being a MagnificentBastard.

Season 1: While Nina works personally for Victor Drazen, Mandy involves herself at a lower level of the organization by working as Ira Gaines's assassin. This way, the sisters together have access to every rung in the Drazensí organization and plot. Nina's surprise at the beginning of the season when Ira Gaines orders Jack to kill her is genuine, because she assumed that Mandy would have done something to prevent it. However, because Mandy was off doing another job for Ira Gaines (specifically, coordinating with Joseph Wald and Ninaís CTU schematics to begin smuggling season 2ís nuclear bomb into the country), she wasnít around to help Nina.

Season 2: After the events of season 1, Mandy surpasses Nina in reputation, because she got away with blowing up a plane while Nina had her cover blown and ended up in jail. Her boost in reputation gets her the job as the personal assassin of Max. Max himself, as well as Alexander Trepkos, are actually members of Alan Wilsonís OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness. Together, Max and Mandy orchestrate season 2ís plot through Peter Kingsley. When he fails, Mandy personally carries out their back-up plan in the season finale. Mandy also brings Nina into the group behind the scenes during the second half of season 2, which is why Nina is on Max's boat in the deleted scene.

The Game: Mandy and Max continue their work together, and she kills James Radford as part of their plan. When Max dies, Mandy takes his place on Alan Wilsonís council. She also has Nina begin work on getting access to season 3's virus, which is why Nina is going through related names when Peter Madsen contacts her during the game.

Season 3: Mandy goes to North Africa to help Nina escape from the exiled immunity that David Palmer put her under. Mandy wants to get her sister onto Alan Wilsonís council too, but the group demands that Nina prove herself first. To help Nina do that, Mandy sends her to Mexico to obtain Stephen Saundersís virus herself. However, things become complicated when the other buyer is Jack Bauer. This obviously ends poorly and Nina winds up dead. Alan Wilsonís council is not impressed, and demand that Mandy redeem herself.

Season 4: Mandy teams up with Marwan to fire a nuclear missile at Los Angeles and regain her reputation. This is why sheís back on the front lines at the end of season 4. Even though Marwanís plan fails, the council is still impressed by her ruthless tactics and ability to get away as a KarmaHoudini once again, and she is re-promoted.

Season 5: Mandy and the council use Charles Loganís incompetence as a president to build on their own interests. They manipulate him into selling nerve gas to Russian terrorists. Mandy, seeing the competence of Jackís power team from previous seasons, knows that they are the biggest threat to their plan. So she tells Christopher Henderson to kill David Palmer, Michelle Dessler, Tony Almeida, and Chloe OíBrien. When this draws Jack back out into the open, she and her group are easily able to make Logan the fall guy (because he is the most powerful, technically) and avoid Jackís revenge themselves. Once things begin to look too dangerous for Logan, Mandy contacts Cheng Zhi with Jackís whereabouts to get him out of the way. While this succeeds in saving the council, it is unfortunately too late to save Logan himself.

Season 6: Jack returns from China and learns about his brother and fatherís involvement in David Palmerís death. Phillip Bauer is a member of Wilsonís council, which means that Jack is getting closer to identifying and apprehending them. Mandy works with Abu Fayed behind the scenes to keep Jack distracted. When Jack kills Fayed, Mandy calls on her old friend Cheng Zhi to go after him again, which Cheng is more than happy to do. The crisis is averted when Phillip chooses to die on the oil rig rather than expose his group. Mandy, seeing Cheng as a valuable asset, begins to work on a plan to get him out of prison.

Redemption: Mandy and Wilsonís council use Jonas Hodges as the main guy to orchestrate everything that Jack deals with in Sangala.

Season 7: When Tony tries to enter Wilsonís group himself, Mandy remembers him from season 4. She vouches for his competence but also knows better than to blindly trust him. The council initially plans to make Mandy his contact, but to keep her distance, she convinces Cara Bowden to take her place. This proves to be a smart move when Tony kills Cara. Wilsonís group falls apart on the surface, but Mandy is able to usurp his position as the only member of the council to not get identified and caught after season 7.

Season 8: She uses the remains of Wilson's group to become the new most powerful ManBehindTheMan and keeps the organization alive. Only now, due to the loss of favor with the American government due to Taylorís capture of Wilson himself, Mandy is forced to shift the new groupís allegiance to the Russian government. Because the peace treaty of Allison Taylor and Omar Hassan would hurt the groupís profits, Mandy plans to kill Hassan herself and ruin the treaty. Deciding to play it safe, she instead hires Davros to do it for her. This, once again, proves to be the smart move when Jack gets involved again. When Renee is killed and Jack begins his RoaringRampageofRevenge, Mandy is smart enough to stay out of it and uses Logan as a fall guy again. She knows how much Jack hates him, so she gets him back in favor with Taylorís administration via Ethan, promising public redemption which she knew Logan would be too egotistical to turn down.

From here she uses VillainExitStageLeft again to screw Logan and save herself.

She helps Margot Al-Harazi go after President Heller, because she remembered the friendship that he and Audrey had with Jack, and counted on Jack leaving his state of hiding once again to save them. This goes exactly as she planned, except Jack kills Al-Harazi too early. To stall for time, she brings in Cheng Zhi, who she recently helped break out of jail, to work with Stolnavich to carry out his crazy plans of revenge. However this was really only meant to stall for time, which works and keeps Jack in the open long enough to get him captured by the Russian government and therefore into the hands of Mandyís group.

Though Bin-Khalidís plot fails, it does make her aware of a new agent that could be a potential threat: Eric Carter. She will continue to antagonize him from behind the scenes.

After Legacy: In the distant future, after Jack has broken out of Russian prison, she and him will meet again face-to-face for the first time in decades. They will have a final battle of absolutely epic proportions that will end with a MutualKill, putting to rest the long rivalry that spanned most of their lifetimes.

** Many viewers forget, but she actually did have legitimate reason to kill Teri. It's in two key lines of dialogue.
-->'''Nina's Employer''': Make sure nothing can connect you to Germany.
-->'''Teri''': You speak German?

Not with any of the terrorist groups or rogue governments, but with his own. They basically never do a decent thing to him, and in fact [[BadBoss do everything they can to screw him over]], [[CassandraTruth never believe him when his tells them things]], and let him be taken by regimes notorious for brutal treatment of prisoners (China & Russia). This treatment is regardless of who's in charge. The government keeps gnawing bits off his body and soul, but he ''keeps coming back''. In Day 8, he tries to leave, but gets pulled back in with only token resistance. He may be a {{badass}}, but his actions are like an abused spouse who won't leave the abuser.
