“24: Live Another Day” wraps up on Monday, July 14 with the finale.
The episode airs from 9 p.m. EDT to 10 p.m.
The “Day 9: 10:00 p.m. – 11:00 a.m.” will feature the clock ticking toward the final seconds of Jack Bauer’s most heroic day.
“As the world teeters on a terror plot of mass proportions, Jack and the team reunite one last time to avert an imminent international crisis,” according to the official description.
“With little time left and the fate of the free world on the line, Jack is faced with an unthinkable and grave decision. Lives will be lost and the American administration will grapple with the day’s most devastating news.”
The final episode is unique because each episode is usually depicts events happening within one-hour. According to Zap2It, the ticking clock doesn’t denote a.m. or p.m., so keep a close eye on what time it is.
Bauer also gets a new toy in the finale, though the blog doesn’t reveal what.
The blog did reveal that Jack and Chloe will spend time together in the finale–and that not everyone will make it out alive.
“Nobody is safe when Jack goes to work and this episode will be no different. There will be casualties on both sides by the time the clock is done ticking, and some of them are going to hurt.”
A video clip also shows that Jack discovers what Cheng is up to.
Reviews of the finale are praising it.
“Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) concludes this rousing 12-hour miniseries by battling through more breakneck action sequences. The finale also packs an unexpected dramatic punch,” said the Orlando Sentinel. “William Devane, playing the U.S. president, pulls off some of his finest moments in a long career. Will there be more ’24?’ We can hope.”
Added TVLine: “I screened the finale on Thursday afternoon, and it is no less than fantastic. Your heart will race, your eyes will well up, your fists will pump, you will wish it lasted longer. (And yes, it accounts for the 12 ‘missing’ hours.) All told, a gripping, emotional finish to one of the TV season’s great comeback stories.”
