Many surprises, but no surprise appearances by Naked Mandy, Mike Novik or anyone else in the #24 finale. Hints on how it ends at @HercSpoils [Tweet via @hercAICN]
Click through for the full list of tweets (cleaned up for easier reading). They lean more towards minor spoilers/teases – no deaths or major twists are revealed, mostly some quotes and intriguing teases (there’s a season two homage for example).
First shot: Manhattan skyline. Second shot: a focused Cole Ortiz.
“If anyone can talk Jack down, it’s Chloe!”
Eriq LaSalle’s in this one – LaSalle is the last name in the opening credits
As we learned in last week’s episode, Ortiz is headed for Jim Rickers’ lair while Chloe is on her way to the UN.
“He knew what he was getting himself into.”
8.23 written by Shauna McGarry & Geoff Aull
Out in the field, a CTU agent addresses Chloe as “Director O’Brien” and hands her an important-looking folder.
“Do you really think we can trust him?”
2:07pm “Chloe, we can’t stand by and let Jack assassinate the president of Russia!”
2:09pm “I think it’s time she knows everything.”
2:10pm “But the good news is Bauer doesn’t know that.”
2:12pm A smug Charles Logan: “Thank you, Jason. It’s been a long road, but we’re almost there.”
Ha! Great reveal with Pillar (Reed Diamond) at 2:12pm.
2:23 Weird to see everybody jumping to execute Chloe’s orders for a change instead of arguing with her!
2:24pm Darkly funny and unexpected Bauer command
2:25pm “I am judge and jury!”
2:26pm Yikes! After the Subarov staff bloodbath last week, it’s impossible to know now where, if anywhere, Bauer is going to draw the line!
2:31pm “President Taylor needs to know!”
2:44pm “Can you really take that chance?”
2:47pm Homage to season two!
2:49pm “There’s nothing left for either of us to say.”
2:55pm Eriq LaSalle plays the UN Secretary General with spectacles and one thick accent.
2:57pm Tense end to the almost-last hour! “Who else knows??”
2:58pm Another signature Bauer tactic I don’t think we’ve seen this season!
2:59pm “Which means you have to do exactly what I say. Do you understand? Do. You. Understand??”
8.23 ends with Bauer smirking a very dark smirk.
“The following takes place between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Events occur in real time.”
3:03pm “Because you helped her come to that understanding.”
3:07pm “Send him in.”
3:25pm very suspenseful! (where is this going??)
3:32pm “No. I don’t suppose he will.”
3:42pm I am reminded here of, of all things, “Survivor’s” tribal council!
3:53pm “I’ve already done that.”
3:58pm “I don’t know what else to say.”
3:59pm “Shut it down.”
