After weeks of guessing, we finally learn the identity of the FBI mole.
Picking up right where we left off last hour, first gentleman Henry Taylor lies bleeding from a gunshot wound as a crew of EMTs rush the scene - and, thankfully, take over for Jack, who appears to be trying to pinch the wound closed with his fingers. Maybe that's some kind of top-secret CTU emergency technique not known to the general public. Either way, the FG is losing a lot of blood.
Notified of her husband's dire condition, President Taylor immediately decides to drop all of that military invasion business and rush off to the hospital to be at his bedside. Understandably, Chief of Staff Ethan Kanin (Bob Gunton) isn't too pleased with this decision, or the danger it puts Madame President in.
His fears are somewhat assuaged, however, when Bill B. steps in and offers to be her personal bodyguard, since the Secret Service hasn't proven all that trustworthy of late. Thankfully, it's a day of special circumstances - what day on 24 isn't though? - and Bill is granted the provisional authority.
After this day, I really wonder if the guys in D.C. will decide they should just start CTU back up. Neither the FBI nor the Secret Service seem capable of handling the day's threats without Jack and the gang stepping in at every turn.
But first, there's the matter of apprehending Dubaku, who's decided to take girlfriend Malika on a romantic vacation abroad to "Belize" (no doubt billed by its tourism board as "the Sengala of Central America"). Somehow, Malika buys Dubaku's lame expired-visa explanation. But she soon gets a wake-up call when Jack kicks in her apartment door (Ever heard of knocking, Jack?) and reveals her boyfriend's true identity.
