24: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

24. 5.5. Quite the slower pace than the first four hours. Yellow Tie Guy was picked up on surveillance cameras heading to hangar Double B so Curtis and his op team check out the dead rats there. Sure enough, there’s trace amounts of nerve gas in the rats’ systems. But who manufactured it? Logan and cronies hope to readmit Martha to the Loony Bin or Vermont. Walt has someone inside CTU and I suspected last week it was Spencer. Turns out it’s Spenser. With a last name like Wolf, they should’ve seen it coming. The McGill hobbit is cleverly usurping Buchanan’s authority. Edgar’s not happy with the way Chloe’s been speaking to him and the secrets she’s been keeping from him. Well, when everything returns to normal, they can have some chamomile tea and she’ll tell you all her secrets, okay? Diane gets a dig in at Audrey by saying she accepted Jack for who he was, implying Audrey didn’t. Ouch. Chloe doesn’t want to make a big drama out of it, but she needs to get into Spenser’s utilities volume. She observes the computer he was working on has a clearance level of 5 instead of 3 and bolts to Buchanan. How many times do we have to tell you: do not mess with Chloe. Spenser’s been tracking Jack and in his spare time let in Hank from outside support. And he has the nerve/stupidity to ask for a lawyer. This is CTU, man. He should consider himself lucky he hasn’t been tortured yet. Martha’s in the bathroom but when Logan checks the Ladies, she’s not there. Maybe he should have checked the men’s room. Tony’s conscious and wants to talk with Jack. In the monitor conveniently placed beside the bed, Jack sees assassin Hank ready to shoot him and uses the old scissors in the throat trick. Spenser admits White House aid Walt Cummings recruited him as part of an investigation to make sure CTU was operating within the rules. CTU may be, but Jack has no intention of it. Best exchange: Spenser and Chloe’s “No one talks to me like that.” “Really? I just did.”
