Jack Bauer: [over a walkie-talkie] You're losing blood.
Ira Gaines: Not enough to stop me from killing you.
Jack Bauer: Maybe neither of us has to die.
Ira Gaines: Like I said, Jack, I don't have that choice.

The Chance to Stay Alive
27 October 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM, Teri and Kim do not go to the water tower. When Jack arrives in the spot and does not see them, he leaves Rick to bring them. He kills one terrorist and uses his radio to know the movements of Gaines and his men. Meanwhile Nina and Tony find that the deposits in Erica Vasquez accountant were made in Belgrade. David Palmer decides to talk to Maureen and discovers that she was threatened and had quited the network. Carl tells him that he has planted false evidences to compromise Keith, changing the behavior of David Palmer. Nina tells Alberta Green that a second hitter has just come from Yugoslavia to kill the senator.

In the thirteenth episode of "24", Jack and his family are finally rescued by CTU. The desperate attitude of Gaines shows how dangerous Andre Drazen and his associates are. But the reaction of David Palmer, showing that he wants to be the president to have the power to destroy Carl and his associates is a great twist in the story. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "12:00"
