- And then she kills Teri for absolutely no reason. Uh... hang on...
Nina's Employer: Make sure nothing can connect you to Germany.Teri: You speak German?
- Repeat: irrational jealousy. She was Yandere enough to think Jack would go for her if she murdered the hypotenuse in the Jack-Teri-Nina love triangle.
- Many viewers forget, but she actually did have legitimate reason to kill Teri. It's in two key lines of dialogue.
- Well, he's died twice now. If anything can take him...
- So, the final episode is Bauer making the entire Earth explode.
- He'd need some real confidence shakers to break his trust in America to do that.
- You mean everything thus far isn't enough?
- Confirmed! Because of Renee's death he is about to assassinate the Russian President which would trigger World War Three, until Chloe talks him down.
The swearing-in for Allison Taylor in the movie Redemption did not have any former Presidents visibly present (which would be a near-impossibility in real life); but the fact that the almost immediate former President Palmer is entirely, completely absent from the picture implies that he is in such a physical condition that he could not attend the ceremony in any way - maybe attached to an iron lung. Why not dead? Word of God has said he is "somewhere" in the world of 24.
She is Kim's daughter.
Now we know what day that Simpsons crossover took place.
- Then who will be in The Movie?
- Jack Bauer, of course. It's going to be a Prequel to the entire series. This seems to be what Kiefer Sutherland wants, as he's been lobbying for Leslie Hope to reprise her role as Teri in the movie and Hope is also in favor of this.
- There were actually plans to show Jack coming out of a restroom after a commercial break, but it was scrapped.
- Theory: Jack had a urostomy. He doesn't need to hold it, just change bags during the commercial.
- Along with Colonel/General Jack O'Neill and the rest of the Stargate gang.
Day 9/LAD's ending just about confirms this as being a potential plot point. The additional scene added to the Blu-Ray release of LAD shows that Tony is getting ready to break out of prison after being there for eight years. Additional info gained from the scene also shows that two years have passed since the end of LAD due to the eight years Tony has been locked up matching up with Day 7>8 and 8>9 time skips and leaving two years left to count. As a result of the scene it's highly likely that Tony will be the one leading the mission to save Jack who will likely be in the hands of Russia for two to three years at this point. This event will line up with a new attack and will likely be what finally gets Russia to just let Jack walk away once he saves them.
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 do everything they can to screw him over, 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.
Kate Morgan really is Sarah Walker, "Kate" being another identity Sarah assumed after returning to the CIA, and she managed to recover her memory after the series' end. Her husband who committed suicide was in fact Chuck.
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 Magnificent Bastard.
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 Drazens 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 Ninas CTU schematics to begin smuggling season 2s nuclear bomb into the country), she wasnt 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 Wilsons Omniscient Council of Vagueness. Together, Max and Mandy orchestrate season 2s 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 Wilsons 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 Wilsons council too, but the group demands that Nina prove herself first. To help Nina do that, Mandy sends her to Mexico to obtain Stephen Saunderss virus herself. However, things become complicated when the other buyer is Jack Bauer. This obviously ends poorly and Nina winds up dead. Alan Wilsons 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 shes back on the front lines at the end of season 4. Even though Marwans plan fails, the council is still impressed by her ruthless tactics and ability to get away as a Karma Houdini once again, and she is re-promoted.
Season 5: Mandy and the council use Charles Logans 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 Jacks 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 OBrien. 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 Jacks revenge themselves. Once things begin to look too dangerous for Logan, Mandy contacts Cheng Zhi with Jacks 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 fathers involvement in David Palmers death. Phillip Bauer is a member of Wilsons 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 Wilsons council use Jonas Hodges as the main guy to orchestrate everything that Jack deals with in Sangala.
Season 7: When Tony tries to enter Wilsons 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. Wilsons 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 Man Behind the Man and keeps the organization alive. Only now, due to the loss of favor with the American government because of Taylors capture of Wilson himself, Mandy is forced to shift the new groups allegiance to the Russian government. Because the peace treaty of Allison Taylor and Omar Hassan would hurt the groups 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 Roaring Rampage of Revenge, 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 Taylors 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 Logans attempts to cover up Russian involvement would get Jack off of her trail and back onto his. From here she uses Villain: Exit, Stage Left 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 remembers the friendship that Heller and Audrey had with Jack, and counts on Jack leaving his state of hiding once again to save them. This goes exactly as she planned, except that 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. She has him work with Cheng on his plans of revenge. However, this was really only meant to stall for time, and it works because it keeps Jack in the open long enough for him to get captured by the Russian government and therefore into the hands of Mandys 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-Khalids plot fails, it does make her aware of a new agent that could be a potential threat: Eric Carter. Because of this, 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 Mutual Kill, putting to rest the long rivalry that spanned most of their lifetimes.
- Terrorism in a legit way to prevent Terrorism.
- Urination is overrated. Real Americans can live without it.
- 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".
- San Francisco does not have any traffic issues (and is definitely not the fourth most congested city in the world). Any traffic jams one perceives in real life are just a products of your imagination.
