"Previous Season" and "Next Season"[edit]

Okay, what's the utility of the "Previous Season" and "Next Season" in the callout box? Because the seasons are only identified by number, there is no added benefit to noting that Season 7 is preceded by Season 6 and followed by Season 8! This convention only makes sense when Seasons or Episodes in a series are identified by name (eg. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back) and the sequence isn't obvious. Let's deleted the numbers here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.229.30.188 (talk) 23:48, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Premiere Delay[edit]

I am surprised that all of the delay is being attributed to the WGA strike. Undoubtedly, this effects production immensly, but so does the abscence of your main character. Kiefer Sutherland was in jail for 48 days serving a no contest to a DUI charge. I would attribute this to the delay more than the writer's strike. -- Ownage2214

No, it's definitely the writer's strike causing the delay. They currently do not have all the episodes filmed, and they won't go on until they have the writers back so they can continue the practice of uninterrupted seasons. Check the source if you need confirmation; if there really is something to your suggestion then post a source so that we could suggest it as a contributing factor. Bradkoch2007 (talk) 22:58, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
The judge was fine with him serving the sentence in 2 chunks that would not affect production however when the WGA strike came up Kiefer instead elected to serve it all at once which includes Christmas, New Years, and his 41st birthday.CoW mAnX (talk) 00:13, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Speculation[edit]

This article seems to have alot of speculation in it so i am removing some stuff. If i broke any rules by doing, don't block me because I am new here. Just let me know thanksSckay 03:28, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

edited above comment for legibility's sake.

Personally, I think "unconfirmed" actors/actresses returning should be taken away. You could name any character from Season 1-6 that hasn't died as "unconfirmed." Also, the comment about Kim Raver possibly returning because she will be in the movie is irrelevant. It isn't even known when the movie will be from. It is not necessarily after Season 7.
hello i found some sort of scripts for the first two eps of this season... im pretty sure they r tru they r detailed and it sounds pretty good..... should it be put on —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.32.50.210 (talk) 18:09, 3 June 2007 (UTC) (Talk)
Please put it on! I'd like to see it! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.131.145.228 (talk) 05:26, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Beware of false or misleading spoilers. There were quite a few of them in Season 7, including some purporting to be shooting scripts. Until and unless they are verified in a reliable source, none of this should be posted in Wikipedia.147.70.244.134 (talk) 23:32, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Terrorists Not Being Terrorists . . . Wait, Huh?[edit]

I'm thinking Jon Cassar is joking about the Quebec terrorists; especially since just a bit above that someone else says the villain won't be a terrorist. -WarthogDemon 02:36, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

I removerd it completely. It has been confirmed as a joke over and over. Please do not add information that is so clearly false. Just because Jon Cassar said it doesnt mean it was without sarcasm. Get a clue. WikiChloesLove 11:14, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Just to note, I wasn't the one that put it there in the first place. -WarthogDemon 17:05, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Unable to check source[edit]

I saw the mention from digital spy source (or whatever) that Gary Oldman has turned down the role of a villain for season 7. I thought I'd see for myself, so I followed the footnote (it's footnote #7). However, I do not have access to view it, and if I don't, others don't as well. Is there a way to make it so that everyone can view it, because if not, the footnote and the statement should be removed because it cannot be verified. Anakinjmt 19:15, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

There was a rumor that was put on this article saying that Kim was going to die mid season. Was that rumur true, or did someone just put that there for no reason? 69.131.145.228 (talk) 17:52, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
No confirmation yet - and unless it is reported by a reliable source (which excludes self-published fanzines and fan sites), it should not be mentioned here. 147.70.244.134 (talk) 23:34, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Fixed the talk page[edit]

Various comments were unsigned, some were not indented, and some were stretching the page. I've fixed all of these issues. Please sign your comments by typing four tildes (as indicated at the top of the page). Also, this page is to discuss the Wikipedia article in general, but not the subject of the show. JamminBen 01:05, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

I have also removed a few irrelevant discussions that relate to the subject matter rather than the Wikipedia article. If you want to discuss the show, there are plenty of TV forums on the Internet. JamminBen 01:25, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Alberta Watson's returns[edit]

IMDb states that Alberta Watson will return as Erin Driscoll. I can't find any source for it, does anyone know if it's true or not? 83.86.73.158 13:43, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Dude, imdb has also said Edward Norton is Jack's brother, Teri and Chase will be back, and they have no idea what they are doing. Listen to NOTHING imdb says. Puppet125 21:29, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Since the premise is that he is on trial for his actions, would it not be possible these people are being credited for perhaps a "Previously on", or video clips in the show, either flashbacks or evidence? Popher 19:10, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but on the same note it is possible that every other character that has appeared on 24 could return to testify for or against Jack. Without a reliable source, which IMDb isn't, then it can't be used. --Vinnyvinny2 02:42, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Morris O'Brian Return[edit]

Where in the citiation does it state that Morris is returning? SignorSimon 21:10, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Tony Almeida, this season's main antagonist[edit]

This article previously stated that Tony Almeida would act as the main antagonist this season. Is there any legitimacy to this claim, or is it a fan theory of some sort? 24.24.90.148 21:25, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Never mind, apparently it is legitimate. 24.24.90.148 23:30, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

The Trailer for Season 7 has been shown in the UK this last few weeks and Tony Almeida is certainly 'on the other side' ... but as this is 24, you don't know if that is indeed the case, perhaps deep under cover, perhaps not. Tobias-UK 14:09, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

...and "interpretation" is considered original research by Wikipedia. It is best to get the interpretation from a reliable source and not from the clip itself. 147.70.244.134 (talk) 23:37, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Confusion[edit]

according to 24s offical site day 7 is still starting in 2008 so why does thi sight say it is prosponed indefanely plese versfy 64.222.112.135 (talk) 03:35, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Look up the definition of indefinitely. Obviously, Fox wants to get 24 back on the air ASAP, but until they can resume filming the unwritten episodes, they can't put them on the air. They're just saying 2008 because like everyone else they don't expect this strike to last longer than a year. Also, please use proper English and grammar on Wikipedia from now on. Bradkoch2007 (talk) 22:55, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

SPOILERS[edit]

Is any effort at all being made to keep this spoiler-free for people who don't want to know all the things that are SUPPOSED to surprise us? It's completely ridiculous that I come here to see when the season is airing, and BAM - very beginning of the article, I'm hit with two enormous spoilers. Please, PLEASE make an effort to keep this page spoiler-clean - spoilers belong somewhere specially marked, like the "plot" section, NOT the very beginning of the article. AdamSolomon (talk) 00:25, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

If you didn't want it spoilt for you, then coming to this page was the worst decision you could have made. Do not remove information just because of your personal grievances; Wikipedia is a place for information and removing it is a vandalous act. We are not going to try and keep this page, or any other, spoiler free in any capacity whatsoever. asyndeton talk 01:22, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Not everybody wants all information. I see no reason not toit is generally expected that the subjects of our articles will be covered in detail. Therefore, Wikipedia carries no spoiler warnings except for the Content disclaimer" keep spoilers separate from other information about the season. Put it in the plot section - what's so wrong with that? I don't think it's vandalism to remove it, it's a way of making Wikipedia more useful for everybody. People who want to be spoiled can look down the page a tiny bit, and people who want to know when the season's going to air don't have to. AdamSolomon (talk) 16:53, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm going to have to disagree. That specific piece of information is important to the article. It's the point of the season. Is it a spoiler? Yes, of course it is, but there are other websites on which you can find the start date and time that don't give you spoilers. I'm sorry for spoiling you, but something as important as that shouldn't just in the plot section. His return is a big part of the season. It's like asking to remove Graem Bauer's last name from the title of the page because it's a spoiler for those who haven't seen season 6. --Vinnyvinny2 (talk) 19:58, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
it would make sense to put SPOILER in big red words on the top page. :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.232.201.134 (talk) 01:10, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
As much as I agree with AdamSolomon, according to Wikipedia:Spoiler "it is generally expected that the subjects of our articles will be covered in detail. Therefore, Wikipedia carries no spoiler warnings except for the Content disclaimer". I personally would still like to see it moved down the page to the plot section, but that is not required. The best way to deal with this would probably be consensus, which by my count is currently tied 2-2, and unless that changes significantly I don't think that any change should be made.Bradkoch2007 (talk) 02:02, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't think (Deceased) should be by the characters that have died so far. Some people DVR episodes, and when a main character is killed it is a surprise. I'm not against putting this information in episode summaries though. Rockingbeat (talk) 23:33, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi, that may be the case, but please see WP:SPOILER.. "It is not acceptable to delete information from an article because you think it spoils the plot. Such concerns must not interfere with neutral point of view, encyclopedic tone, completeness, or any other element of article quality". Hope this explains things. Best, Steve Crossin Talk/Help us mediate! 23:37, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Sources for Novick and Wayne returning?[edit]

I can't find anything indicating they are back, so unless someone shows something, they will be taken down. Puppet125 (talk) 17:40, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Aaron Pierce[edit]

I searched through the ninth issue of the mag and can't see anything about Aaron anywhere. Does someone want to shed some light as to where it says this? SignorSimon (talk) 19:36, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

"Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O'Brian" getting jumpy[edit]

Why does there seem to be an edit war going on regarding Mary Lynn Rajskub's position in the cast list. Am I missing something? Does it really matter?! ChimpanzeeUK (talk) 09:51, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Someone had her second initially, and I moved her down to third because I felt it was clear that Tony (Carlos Bernard) is going to be a much more prominent character in the coming season. I didn't think much of it at the time, just thought it was a small change, but then someone else switched it again. We went back and forth a few times. Whoever's doing it needs to get banned, imo. Characters should be in alphabetical order or in order of importance. Neither would have Chloe listed second. Mrmcpheezy (talk) 19:37, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

You can't judge importance if the season has not aired yet. And she has been listed second for at least the last two seasons. Rhino131 (talk) 00:07, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

It's fairly clear from the trailer that Tony will play a much larger role in the season than will Chloe. Mrmcpheezy (talk) 18:51, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

This is a really childish thing to fight over. They are both regular cast members, why does it matter what order they're listed in on the page? It's getting pretty annoying having to watch this pointless edit war. SeanMooney (talk) 22:38, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Agreed. I have this on my watchlist, like I have all 24 articles there, and I have to say this is one of the lamest edit wars i've ever seen. Cut it out, or, take it to dispute resolution. And, if you really have concerns, head over to WP:24 and list it on the talk page. Thanks. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 22:48, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Seriously, Rhino. I edited initially not thinking it a big deal, but Rhino got all butthurt about it. 208.79.244.64 (talk) 23:17, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 23:31, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

1) He's been in more episodes 2) The actor's name would appear first alphabetically using either first or last names 3) The character's name would appear first alphabetically by last name. The only logical argument, putting aside trying to estimate someone's importance to something that hasn't happened yet, is that Cloe would come first by alphabetical character first name - all other logical ways of looking at it support Tony coming first. And I support this making the lame edit list. CoW mAnX (talk) 20:33, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

This is pathetic. However, Cow mAnX, I believe you are totally wrong as the points are irrelevant to casting. I believe when it airs Chloe's name will be first because:

  • She has been in more recent episodes
  • She is on the good side, whereas Tony is apparently bad.
  • They rarely list cast in alphabetical order, its usually due to position in the cast, Keifer will always be first, or if they are a featured star. Look at Buffy, Alyson Hannigan was nowhere really in the first few series, then she became an 'and' then a 'with', due to character appearance and breakout.
  • She has become a bit of a breakout character since she was bought in.

But... the most important point is: who cares? really!!!! its pathetic the page has been blocked due to something so petty. Chocobogamer (talk) 20:46, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

  • To set the record straight, I never edited anything, I just saw the edits and this talk page section and added my thoughts. I agree, all this is really stupid, just wait until the show airs and put them in the credits order. Rhino131 (talk) 02:22, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Personally, I find this dispute absolutely ridiculous. If this is is a real severe issue, pursue dispute resolution, although I think everyone here should just come off the Reichstag and calm down. I'd mediate the dispute myself, but as I'm the 24 project co-ordinator, it would be a conflict of interest, therefore I cannot. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 02:34, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Protected[edit]

Due to this very petty edit war, I've requested an administrator protect the article, which has been done. Please, please, resolve this dispute. I'm on hand to help out if needed. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 02:14, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Also listed the dispute here. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 02:46, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

This has been protected due to petty issues, and that's what concerns me. Look, I agree that this is pathetic, but I would just let the people switch them around, I don't see why it's worth protecting the page, as long as it shows that Kiefer Sutherland is the starring cast member. Besides, I think the arguement's been resolved.Green Kirby (talk) 18:14, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree that full-protecting the page for a week was a bit harsh but perhaps that's what is needed for people to cool down and realize they were fighting over a stupid thing. I am thinking of rewriting the page to be similar in style to Lost (season 4) - the cast section would be prose instead of a list. This would make it easier to read and also would cut down on the edit wars I hope. What does everyone think? SeanMooney (talk) 00:05, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

I'd be open to that idea. Anything that helps improve the article, go ahead and do it :D. For the record, I asked the article be protected, merely as it was a dispute I saw no end to without intervention, and I think the protection has shown what will happen if content disputes, no matter how petty, happen. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 04:06, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. It seems that "someone" has moved it again. Was this dispute ever resolved? ChimpanzeeUK - User | Talk | Contribs 11:09, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

I hardly think the dispute wasn't resolved. It's rather lame, in my opinion, but I don't see what can be done about it. Steve Crossin (talk) 12:05, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

I have alphabetised the entire cast, including Keifer, I think this is the only way to keep the peace until the series comes out. I think, well hope, that if you say 'cast in alphabetical order' it will stop stupid edits Chocobogamer (talk) 12:17, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Content dispute -- protection 2[edit]

I've fully protected the page for three days. Please discuss below this line. Thanks, PeterSymonds | talk 14:48, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Ugh. Now personaly, I agree that Tony should be second on the cast, but it's only because of the fact that he seems more important in the trailer, not to mention being in the series longer. But it really does'nt matter. I mean c'mon, is it really worth protecting the whole article? As far as I'm concerned, as long as Kiefer Sutherland is on the top of the list, as he should be, I don't see the big issue you admins seem to be making this into.Green Kirby (talk) 16:45, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I requested protection, as, well, I saw a petty edit war that needed discussion. And I'm sure that after the protection expires, it will continue. But, seriously, does it really matter of the order? And, how exactly can we determine someone's importance from a 2 minute YouTube video? Really, I think it should just be left how it is, is it really worth edit warring over? Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 16:50, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Mary Lynn Rajskub was credited third in season 5 and Carlos Bernard was fourth. Therefore, she should be credited higher in day 7 as well. Although I do think that Mary Lynn, Carlos and James Morrison will probably be credited as "Special Guest Stars" next time. But my original point stands (can't believe the page has been protected because of this). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Loveem (talkcontribs) 18:55, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

My question is, is it really worth edit warring over this? Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 19:04, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

No, of course it is'nt, but I don't think it's worth protecting this over.Green Kirby (talk) 00:20, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
It's not worth it at all, especially when the first official (FOX) cast list comes out - then the argument will be moot. B.Wind (talk) 20:57, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Moved from article page[edit]

Extended content

Season overview[edit]

Season Seven is set in Washington D.C., about two years after Season Six.

Day 7 opens with CTU dismantled and Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) on trial concerning his past extralegal activities in the course of stopping a potential attack on a bus by terrorist Ibrahim Haddad (as was the case with several other counterterrorism measures by Bauer, it involved the use of torture). Bauer’s day on trial takes an unexpected turn when former colleague and confidant Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) returns.

Season Seven features the first (in the 24 universe) female President, Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones), her husband Henry Taylor (Colm Feore), and White House Chief of Staff Ethan Kanin (Bob Gunton).

A national security crisis prompts an investigation by a team of FBI agents including Agent Janis Gold (Janeane Garofalo), Agent Renee Walker (Annie Wersching), Agent Larry Moss (Jeffrey Nordling), Agent Sean Hillinger (Rhys Coiro) and security specialist Michael Latham (John Billingsley). Although CTU is no longer a part of the series, Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) return.

As the only source is the YouTube video, which can't be used as a source, I've removed the whole section. If you can incorporate this content into the article, sourcing other sites other than YouTube, go ahead, but for a TV show that hasn't even aired yet, I don't see why this section is there. Steve Crossin (talk) (review) 01:28, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Original air date and length of first episode[edit]

Clearly this season officially starts in November 2008, not in Jan 2009. Also, it appears deceptive to list the first episode as a "2 hour" length; as this is not likely to be the uninterrupted run length (the regular run length for each episode being 42 minutes, where Fox promotes them as being "hour long episodes) - compare to 1-hour long Doctor Who "Special" episodes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.9.142.125 (talk) 09:10, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm not convinced by the argument that the "2 hour" episode is not an official part of Series 7 (the reason given by the last editor changing "No. of episodes 25" to "No. of episodes 24 (and one two-hour prequel)"). It was announced in a Press Release solely about 24 Series 7, and besides "24 forty-two minute episodes plus one prequel episode" equals "25 total episodes". Here is the EXACT wording from FOX:

Fans have been waiting almost a year for the return of 24, television's most addictive drama. On Sunday, November 23 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the wait will be over as FOX presents a special two-hour prequel event.

Regardless, when I search Wikipedia for "24 TV Movie" or "24 Prequel Episode" there is no such article. The place where this episode is mentioned is in this article. Therefore it's an encyclopaedic fact that the episode is part of Series 7. I'm also not convinced it will be a full two hour episode; Fox promoted the original series as being "24 one hour episodes"; but in reality produced 24 42 minute episodes formatted for advertising. --210.9.140.64 (talk) 04:59, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

No, it's clearly not a fact. The prequel is referred to as a TV movie event and NOT an episode. The show is called 24 for a reason, there are *always* 24 episodes. Any prequels, mobisodes, etc are not counted as part of the season. As for your other complaint, FOX has said the prequel will be two hours and that's the only official information we have to go on right now - changing anything at this point is speculation. And honestly I don't think something that petty is worth debating over. SeanMooney (talk) 05:17, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
In that case "24 (and one two-hour prequel)" itself is an error. "24 (and one two-hour prequel)" literally means "25". You cannot go half-way. Either the prequel episode is a part of Series 7 and will be released on DVD along with the rest of the series; or it's completely disconnected and therefore shouldn't appear at all in an article entitled "24 Season 7".
The show is called 24 for a reason, there are *always* 24 episodes.
Then I would suppose Prison Break is called Prison Break because there is *always* a prison escape in each season? How come the *episode* does not contain its own *page* on Wikipedia if it is an *independent* event disconnected from Season 7?--210.9.140.64 (talk) 11:10, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
I suggest going by however the episodes are numbered by the television series. The one with the number "1" will be the first episode of the season. Gary King (talk) 05:22, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I think it's rather clear that the prequel is seperate of the actual season itself. It's already mentioned in the article, however I'm not really convinced that it's an episode. --Steve Crossin (contact) 05:27, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Hopefully this will solve the dispute: Matt Mitovich of TV Guide recently contacted FOX (posted just days ago on Jun 25) and confirmed the prequel is not counted as an episode. A few months pass between the end of the prequel and the start of the seventh season. SeanMooney (talk) 05:50, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
That article only confirms the fact that following the prequel episode there will be a full 24-episode "day". The fact is that the episode *is* connected to Season 7 - it *is* a part of the season, acts as the first episode, and brings the total number of episodes to 25. Yes this is different from all the other seasons, however Season 2 didn't start and end at midnight covering only one literal day - it instead spanned a 24 hour period. It is not encyclopaedic to put "24 (and one two-hour prequel)". AND one two-hour episode - are you joking? 24 AND One does not equal 25?? What am I missing??? --61.69.3.52 (talk) 12:22, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
I know it's been awhile, but I've been looking through this, and man! It amazes me that people say such incorrect things so confidently, as if everybody else is wrong! Of course 24+1 equals 25, 61.69.3.52 . But it's not 25 episodes, guy (or girl). And, of course Day 2 spanned a 24-hour period-- that's how the show is made! Jeez, I don't know why I'm getting so pissed, but next time, read all of the other comments before posting yours (If you had, you'd have realized that Redemption was not an episode but a PREQUEL, a SPECIAL EVENT). It makes you look dumb. No offense. --Dann-Fonda (talk) 01:38, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

I've deleted most uses of the word "prequel" in the article referring to Redemption. It is not a prequel, by definition, no matter what the PR says. It was broadcast in chronological sequence: it occurs between Days 6 and 7; it was broadcast between Days 6 and 7, so it is NOT a "prequel". I've changed the infobox to "prologue", though a bit less trendy than "prequel", it's accurate. Barsoomian (talk) 07:10, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Reshoots of completed episodes[edit]

Have any episodes filmed prior to the strike last year been reshot, so that the "plan for the whole season" which the producers refer to could have been put into place? If not then they only planned the last 16 episodes and not the whole season. Bogger (talk) 12:23, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

This entire article is rubbish.[edit]

'Season Seven, also known as Day 7, of the television series 24 was originally planned to premiere on January 13, 2008 but was delayed an entire year due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. FOX will air a two-hour "prequel" TV movie titled 24: Redemption‎ on November 23, 2008 that bridges the gap between seasons.'

1. The first sentence in this Wikipedia article describes an event related to the season and not the season itself. 2. The remainder of the first paragraph is used up discussing something that's apparently "not a part of season 7".

The first sentence and the first paragraph of an article should be describing what 24 Season 7 is, and not merely "related" events.

'Known details'

"Known Details"??? This is utter rubbish, fuelling speculation and rumours; and is entirely un-encyclopaedic.

Production:

'Producers were determined to reinvent the series after facing criticism over the sixth season.'

You can't know their state of mind, just report the facts, not conjecture as to how they came to their decision.

'Measures will be taken during filming and production of season 7 to save energy and reduce enough carbon emissions throughout the season to make the season finale "carbon neutral".'

So what? Why does that belong in this article?

'A number of ways that the production intends to save energy are listed on the site'

This is, again, inappropriate for a wikipedia page. It reads like an advertisement.

'Howard Gordon said that 24 cares about the issue of global warming and takes fighting climate change seriously. A number of ways that the production intends to save energy are listed on the site, some of which are: using a combination of petroleum diesel and biodiesel instead of regular diesel fuel, creating a series of PSAs with Kiefer Sutherland and other main cast members to educate the public on what they can do to help with the issue, and, when appropriate, applying the issue of global warming and reducing carbon emissions to the storylines.'

There is no evidence that the production of 24 will have a direct impact ofn Global Warming. Therefore it is inappropriate to describe "carbon neutral" in this way. Furthermore, Biofuels are a debatable subject, many people feel that unless the land used to create biofuel is barren in nature (ie unable to sustain general crop) then it is taking up land otherwise used by farming for food, or forest, or wood harvest, etc.

The entire article reads as a personal opinion with no regard whatsoever as to being neutral and accurate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.9.137.105 (talk) 09:03, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

How is it "rubbish"? Wikipedia articles don't only contain in-universe information about a TV show, but every little piece of info about production, air-dates, etc. Otherwise, the article would be incomplete. If you want info pertaining to the plot, check the Plot section. --Dann-Fonda (talk) 01:47, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

About Jack Bauer[edit]

In season 7, will Jack Bauer become an FBI agent? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Levis93 (talkcontribs) 15:19, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Let's just wait and see, shall we? If you have some verifiable information from a reliable source (and not a 24 fan forum or someone's blog sheet), then we can look it over and see about extracting some encyclopedic facts from it. Even if it happens to be true by sheer luck, we have no way to verify it yet. The Wikipedia is not the place for posting fan speculation and wild guesses that are (perhaps) based on sparse television commercials, which are notoriously misleading and even deliberately edited specifically to create interest. Thanks though. --T-dot ( Talk/contribs ) 17:54, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
I know the episode airs soon in the USA, but I think you've been very unfair to this writer. In the 17 minute preview of episode one the FBI are clearly seen offering Jack a deal. So if this does happen it will happen within the first couple of episodes, and so is a good educated guess and there isn't long to wait now to confirm or deny it. --210.9.136.57 (talk) 12:30, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I would also like to point out one of my previous suspicions regarding Almeida - the article reads (and has done for a long while) that "Carlos Bernard will return as Tony Almeida in the premiere of season 7 as one of the main antagonists". This is clearly false and proves that this was never a true encyclopaedic entry for this article. And I suspected for a long time this wasn't "entirely true" because it would have lost all believability. --210.9.142.203 (talk) 07:44, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Trepkos[edit]

What's the deal with Alexander Trepkos? I keep seeing hints that he's going to be back in the last episode of season 7. Anyone done research on this? — Deckiller 01:05, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Entertainment Weekly?[edit]

Is that the actual quote from Entertainment Weekly at the end of this article? The grammar is so bad it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

"Fresh characters like this is the way that the is only that..."

Episode guides[edit]

they are too long compared to the rest of the articles of 24. They should just be summarized like on season 6 article. 82.131.77.12 (talk) 13:47, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, but this is getting longer and longer. Until this can be trimmed, it's gotta go. A few sentences on each episode should suffice, not 3 paragraphs. Brevity is essential. Steve Crossin Talk/24 00:25, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

The sister of Dubaku's girlfriend discovers that he is an illegal immigrant and demands that he end the relationship, prompting Dubaku to leave the hideout to deal with the matter. Jack and Walker infiltrate the hideout and kill Dubaku's men, but not before one of them shoots Mr. Taylor in the abdomen.

Marika agrees to help after Jack and Renee show her evidence of atrocities committed by Dubaku. Dubaku secures emergency passports and tickets from his American co-conspirators; however, he warns them that their names will be exposed to the Justice Department should he be killed as a perceived liability. At the FBI, Chloe and Moss help Jack and Renee track Marika to Dubaku. Sean, revealed to be one of Dubaku's co-conspirators, stalls Jack and Renee by issuing a warrant for their arrest. Upon President Taylor's request, Bill asks Aaron Pierce to fetch the President's estranged daughter, Olivia.
154 10 "5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m." Milan Cheylov Manny Coto & Brannon Braga 7AFF10 February 23, 2009
Marika joins Dubaku as they head to the airport. Agent Moss rescinds the arrest warrant, allowing Jack and Renee to close in on Dubaku; Marika causes an accident to prevent Dubaku from escaping the pursuit. Marika dies at the scene, and Dubaku provides Jack with a disc containing the database of co-conspirators. At FBI headquarters, Agent Moss and Chloe begin analyzing the disk, but Sean and his accomplice, Erika, attempt to wipe the servers to erase the database. After Erika wipes the servers, Sean kills her as a loose end and shoots himself to cover up his involvement. However, Chloe recovers the database via a mirrored server, revealing Sean as the mole; he is taken into custody as he tries to escape. When the President returns from the hospital, Bill asks her to consider Jack's case in Senator Meyer's hearings. Afterward, Olivia and President Taylor share a bitter reunion. Tony informs Jack of an imminent attack at the hands of Dubaku's boss, General Juma, and that someone within Mayer's staff is on Juma's payroll. Mayer is informed that the President wishes to speak to him in person about Jack. Mayer leaves for the White House with his chief of staff, Ryan Burnett, who receives a message confirming that plans for the attack are on schedule.
155 11 "6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m." Brad Turner Alex Gansa 7AFF11 March 2, 2009
As the President meets with Senator Mayer to discuss Jack's situation, Jack enters the White House to extract the location of Juma's impending attack from Burnett. Chloe erases Burnett's name from Dubaku's list to allow Jack enough time to torture him; however, Janis discovers the deletion, Chloe is arrested, and the Secret Service interrupt Jack just as Burnett was about to disclose the information. Jack is arrested, and Burnett refuses the President's offer of immunity in exchange for the information regarding Juma's target. Meanwhile, Dubaku is discreetly murdered at the hospital. Agent Walker discovers the killer on a security camera and follows him back to a warehouse on the Potomac, where she discovers Juma's strike force preparing to take a boat to their target. Walker calls Agent Moss and then stows away on Juma's boat, damaging her cell phone in the process. She learns that Juma's plan is to invade the White House via a hidden sewer duct accessible from the Potomac. However, she is spotted by one of Juma's men and flees, searching for a way to alert the authorities in time.
156 12 "7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m." Brad Turner Teleplay by Evan Katz Story by Manny Coto & Brannon Braga 7AFF12 March 2, 2009
Juma and his men invade the White House, covertly killing Secret Service agents as they head for the President. Agent Walker manages to warn the FBI, and the Secret Service prepare to secure the President. Jack, under arrest for torturing Ryan Burnett, is released to help guard the President en route to the lockdown room. Bill realizes that Juma is using the President's tracker bracelet to locate her. Buchanan removes it and acting as a decoy, leads Juma's men away from the President buying Jack and the President more time to get to safety. He succeeds but is captured. Just as Jack, President Taylor and her remaining Secret Service detail arrive at the lockdown room, Juma's men reach them and a firefight breaks out, and only Jack and the President survive to seal the security door. With Secret Service closing in from all directions, Juma bluffs and tells them he has the President. The federal agents withdraw and surround the White House. The Vice President, despite the advice of Agent Moss and Agent Walker, refuses to authorize a rescue attempt, fearing the political consequences for himself if the President dies because of his order. Juma's men attempt to break into the lockdown, but Jack thwarts them by shorting out the keypad on the security door. Flustered, Juma calls a man named Hodges, who informs him that the President's daughter is in the White House and that by threatening to torture her, Juma can convince the President to open the door. The President's daughter Olivia Taylor, hiding along with Secret Service agent Aaron Pierce, attempts to send a message out a window using a flashlight and Morse code. Juma's men find them and both are captured and brought to Juma, Pierce having been shot in the arm while protecting Olivia. Juma uses threats of torture to force the President to order Jack to open the door and let Juma capture her. The episode ends with Juma informing the President that she will be making a video statement - the last she will ever make.
157 13 "8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m." Brad Turner Manny Coto & Brannon Braga 7AFF13 March 9, 2009
Jack informs Bill that before exiting the lockdown room with the President, Jack had released enough natural gas to cause an explosion if a bullet is fired within it. Jack tells Bill that he intends to run at the lockdown room, forcing one of Juma's men nearby to fire a shot and set off an explosion and tells Bill to secure President Taylor when he does. As the President reads Juma's statement apologizing for the US invasion of Sangala, Bill tells Jack that he saw Juma on the phone to someone who he believes to be another co-conspirator and tells Jack to follow up on this lead through Burnett, stating that he (Jack) is the 'only one' who can uncover this. Jack realises what Bill has in mind and before Jack can stop him, Bill charges one of Juma's men, knocking him down into the lockdown room. Bill manages to grab the guard's gun and fires a shot off inside the lockdown room, setting off the explosion, killing himself and several of Juma's henchmen. This prompts Agent Moss to send in the FBI despite the Vice President's objections. Agent Pierce secures the President and her daughter while Jack secures a weapon and confronts Juma, wounded from the explosion. Juma goes for his gun and is gunned down by Jack while the FBI kill Juma's remaining men. Olivia Taylor vows to stand by her mother, and when the President orders Ethan Kanin to offer Olivia a job in her administration, Olivia blames Kanin for allowing the administration to be infiltrated in the first place. Jack informs Moss and Walker about what Bill had told him and asks he if could interrogate Burnett again, but promises that he will not resort to torture. Agent Moss refuses and orders him arrested, but Agent Walker convinces Kanin to override Moss and let Jack interrogate Burnett. Moss suspends Agent Walker for insubordination and accompanies Jack to the hospital. Once there he waits outside the hospital room, using the camera and audio feed to keep watch on Jack while he interrogrates Burnett. However, as Jack begins the interrogation, an assassin sent by Hodges briefly disables the camera and audio feed to the hospital room and immobilizes Jack and Burnett with nerve gas before slitting Burnett's throat, making it appear as if Jack is to blame. After recovering from the nerve gas Jack escapes from the hospital and begins to hunt for Hodges' assassin, with the FBI on his tail.
158 14 "9:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m." Brad Turner Evan Katz & Juan Carlos Coto 7AFF14 March 16, 2009
Having retrieved the hospital's security recordings before leaving, Jack sends a photograph of Burnett's killer to the now-suspended Agent Walker, who helps him to identify the man as John Quinn, an operative for a Blackwater-esque private security company called Starkwood. Walker tells Jack that Senator Mayer has been investigating Starkwood for months, and that if anybody would know of a connection between Starkwood and Juma, Mayer would. Jack travels to Mayer's residence and, with Mayer's forced assistance, discovers that Starkwood had been providing Juma with the military and technological assistance to carry out his attack on the White House in exchange for an unmonitored area in which Starkwood could develop a biological weapon and test it on Sangalan villagers. Agent Moss discovers that Renee contacted Jack, and orders Renee arrested. Renee's messages to Jack are encrypted, but Morris O'Brian decrypts them in exchange for immunity for himself and Chloe, although Chloe disapproves strongly as she feels they have let Jack down. The FBI determine that Jack is at Senator Mayer's residence and send several teams over to apprehend Jack. Meanwhile, a man knocks on Senator Mayer's door claiming to be a policeman, and Mayer convinces Jack to turn himself in and let the government investigate the leads he has uncovered. However, when Mayer answers the door, the man at the door turns out to be Quinn, who kills Mayer and pursues Jack to a construction site, where Jack ambushes and kills him. Jack demands that Quinn reveal when the weapons will arrive only for Quinn to say omnimously that 'they're already here' with his dying breath. Jack determines from Quinn's cell phone the location where the biological weapons shipment is coming into the country, and calls Tony Almeida to tell him to meet at the location and intercept it. The FBI shows up at Mayer's residence to find the Senator dead, and Agent Moss, assuming that Jack is responsible, orders the manhunt for Jack expanded, with orders to shoot on sight.
159 15 "10:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m." Jon Cassar Teleplay By Alex Gansa Story By David Fury 7AFF15 March 23, 2009

As the FBI continue their search for Jack, Larry calls Ethan and tells him that Senator Mayer is dead. They believe that Jack murdered him. Ethan is angry with Larry for letting Jack get away, but Larry reminds him that he advised Ethan against using Jack in the first place. This sobers Ethan, who subsequently tenders his resignation to the President.

With her husband on the mend, the President was hoping the day would end on a more positive note. She tries to persuade Ethan not to resign, but he feels that his poor decisions will tarnish her administration if he does not resign immediately.

Jack calls Tony and explains about the bioweapon that Starkwood is about to get a hold of in order to fight their congressional order to be dismantled. U.S. civilians will be killed to prove that Starkwood is needed as a secondary security force. Jack believes the weapon is still at the port. There's only one Port Authority Officer on duty, named Carl Gadsen. As Gadsen gets off the phone with his very pregnant wife while working double shifts to make ends meet, Jack and Tony grab him. They disarm him and force him at gunpoint to get the port manifest.

At Starkwood, Hodges is informed that Quinn hasn't checked in. He then addresses Starkwood's board, exhorting them to stop cooperating with the government subcommittee. They are not to answer any more subpoenas. Starkwood can be a vital tool in protecting an America that has an army stretched to the breaking point and the draft off the table. After the meeting, Douglas Knowles, the Board's chairman, tells Hodges he thinks it's folly to fight Senator Mayer. Hodges informs him that Mayer has been killed by a rogue federal agent. Knowles is horrified, and asks for Hodges' assurance that he wasn't involved. Hodges feigns offense, but coolly suggests that while Starkwood is not in the business of political assassinations, it's certainly a growth market they could look into.

At the port, Gadsen tells Jack and Tony that he was trying to make extra cash to support his impending twins conceived with expensive fertility treatments. He had planned to aid men that he thought were simple electronics smugglers. They haven't arrived yet. Jack tries to call in the FBI, but communication is jammed. The men arrive at the gate. Jack tells Gadsen to let them in. He and Tony will follow them and call for help once they're out of jamming range. Gadsen is reluctant, but Jack promises that they have his back. Gadsen opens the gate to find a small army waiting, led by Stokes, who is suspicious of how nervous Gadsen is. He forces Gadsen to come along with them to the pickup site. Tony whispers to Jack that he knew Gadsen was a dead man the moment he walked out that door.

Olivia tells Ethan that she is personally sorry for his resignation, though she still think it's what's best for her mother. Ethan apologizes for accusing her of leaking his role in Jack's escape to the press. He advises her that running the country isn't like running a campaign -- you need to do what's right for the people, not just whatever it takes to win. Olivia responds that sometimes those things aren't mutually exclusive. Once he's gone, she calls network White House reporter Ken Dellao to inform him that he can now run with the story about Ethan and Jack. She was the leak.

At Senator Mayer's home, evidence is found that points to a third person being involved with the murder. Larry calls Renee to say that he is prepared to entertain the idea that Jack is innocent. He wants her to tell him what she knows. She's reluctant to blow Jack's cover, but finally discloses what she knows about Quinn and Starkwood, and the fact that Jack was trying to prove that Starkwood was behind today's attacks.

At the port, Tony wants to move out, but Jack can't abandon Gadsen. He already promised one person today that he'd protect them, and now they are dead. He can't let that happen again. When a thug is dispatched to lead Gadsen off to be executed, Jack takes aim. Tony exhorts him not to do it because it will blow the whole mission, causing so many more innocents to die. Jack pulls the trigger, saving Gadsen, who runs away to safety.

Jack and Tony come up with a fallback plan: hijack the truck. The dead man is found in short order, and Tony and Jack open fire. In the course of the gunfire, Jack manages to leap aboard the truck and throw the driver out of the cab while Tony keeps them distracted. However, Tony gets captured. As Jack prepares to drive away with the bioweapon, he hears over the walkie-talkie about Tony getting caught. Stokes recognizes him. Jack calls Larry and asks him to scramble together teams to meet him at a weigh station.

Just as Jack gets off the phone, a flashing light alerts him to a breach. He stops the truck and checks in the truck's pallet to find a gash in one of the containers causing bioweapon gas to leak out. Unfortunately, he's stopped near a suburban area. Jack desperately manages to hammer the leak closed.

Moments later, the Starkwood team arrives with gunmen and a helicopter. Jack is forced to take cover while the gunmen airlift the bioweapon away. Stokes calls Hodges and reports he'll be there in ten minutes. Meanwhile, Jack calls Larry and tells him that Starkwood recovered the weapon and headed due west from his position. Larry says there's a large military facility in that area, but he can't assault a private compound without evidence that a weapon exists. Jack tells him to send his CDC men to him and they'll have all the proof they need -- Jack was exposed to the bioweapon chemical

In-universe date[edit]

This is an encyclopedia, so continuity is required, that takes precedence over the TV show. Most feel that the date is a production error, and should be removed. Thats called Consensus. Also, the date isn't that important. Saying it took place however long after the previous season would be adequate. Best, Steve Crossin Talk/Help us mediate! 13:18, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Jonas Hodges, etc.[edit]

"Jonas Hodges" redirects to the main article; can someone fix this? I haven't the energy. And there are other people to write articles for. OneWeirdDude (talk) 04:22, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

This 24 Season 7 article is very different from the articles for the first six seasons. It doesn’t really address the Main Plot, Major Subplots, Plot Twists, etc. It is not really about the show at all from an entertainment standpoint, but is more of a description of how the Writers Guild's strike affected production, along with the political overtones of the show. Shouldn’t an article about one season out of seven conform at least a little to the same format used for the other six seasons? The production issues should be a subtopic further down the page - after the plot and sub-plot summaries. J-Mac (talk) 07:19, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
