May 18, 2009 — I’ve been a 24 (tv series) fanatic ever since. And tonight is the season finale of 24 (Episode 23 and 24). We all know that every 24 season finale has some of the biggest explosions and twist of a TV year.
On the 167th episode of the 24 Season 7 Finale:
Jack has no choice but to help Tony escape in exchange for Kim. Tony breaks out of FBI custody and takes Jack with him to harvest pathogens from his body useful for another attack. At the airport, Kim starts to become suspicious about the couple she got acquainted with. When Kim is about to check in her baggage, she receives a call from Renee Walker warning her of the threat. In the meantime, tension rushes up for Olivia as former chief-of-staff Ethan Kanin recovers the audio recording, which will prove Olivia’s involvement in Hodges’ death. Back at the airport, FBI agents are closing in to save Kim and apprehend the hired accomplices, which will lead them to Jack’s location. Tony, on the other hand, continues to negotiate for a higher role with a major anonymous conspirator as he reveals his plan of launching another attack. Jack manages to escape from the hired doctors who weaponized the pathogens inside his body.
On the 168th episode 24 Season 7 Finale
To locate Jack, Chloe tries to reverse track the laptop recovered by Kim from the perpetrators. Jack enters a garage and finds an idle taxicab supposedly for his escape. However, Tony is able to follow and tries to shoot him. Jack attempts to blow himself up inside the garage with a flare and spilling fuel. Tony somehow prevents it from happening. In the White House, Ethan reveals to Olivia her failure of destroying the audio recording. With Agent Pierce behind him, Ethan confronts Olivia and gives her the option of telling the truth to her mother by herself. Allen Wilson, the mysterious man authorizing the terrorist attacks and the one responsible for Michelle’s death, finally meets up with Tony in person. Tony wraps C4 bombs around Jack’s waist to be detonated when Wilson moves in closer to Jack. Before that can happen, FBI agents arrive, just in time. Cara and Wilson try to escape from the scene but Tony catches them and kills Cara. Just when Tony is about to kill Wilson, Jack and Renee enter the scene, preventing Wilson’s death. In the White House, Olivia confesses her fault to her mother and father. As President of the Unites States, Allison decides not to cover up the mess involving her daughter. Jack’s rapid health deterioration weakens him and he accepts his end. Kim, however, cannot allow that to happen and volunteers by herself to undergo the stem cell transplant to save her father’s life.
