24 : 2 - 3 p.m.

24. 6.9. The previous hour was such non-stop action that this one was a snoozefest in comparison. And Kiefer’s infectious habit of intense whispering seems to have spread to most of the cast. I’m sure I missed a lot of dialogue. Milo finds an e-mail fragment with a link to Gredenko who is no longer in Moscow, but on the west coast, probably in or near Los Angeles. Here’s where Jack tenderly touch Chloe’s arm. Awww. In CTU’s morgue, Papa Bauer is busy deleting phone messages from his dead son’s cell. Jack asks him about a Russian liaison but Papa says Gray oversaw the project and dealt with Gredenko. He can call the company executives to see if they know anything. Instead he warns someone (possibly named Carter?) to find Gredenko and kill him.

Jack is informed the drug used during Gray’s interrogation caused his death. Bill offers to cover up Jack’s exceeding protocol and losing control, but Jack’s prepared to accept any consequences for his actions. Marilyn doesn’t blame Jack for Gray’s death. In fact, she’s been trying for years to leave her toad of a husband but he threatened to take Josh away from her. One night, hoping she could find some leverage on him, she followed him to a house in West LA where she heard Russian accents. Could she find the house again? She could try. Hearing this plan, Papa Bauer offers to take Josh for quality grandparenting. Before that, he calls his crew to set up a fake house in West LA.

Vice President Daniels, while not directly involved, will help enact Tom’s agenda. Tom and cohort Reed whisper a lot about conduits and architects and itineraries. Morris is in sick bay kicking himself for being a coward. Chloe utters the line of the hour with: “I know you’ve been through a lot today but you’re really starting to piss me off.” She orders him to stop feeling sorry for himself and get back to work. Out searching for the Russia House, Marilyn receives a call from Papa. Unless she calls him Susan and directs Jack to the address he provides, he’ll kill Josh like he killed Gray. Ah, the family that kills together… The CTU tact team storm the house she points out. Jack spots a bomb and leaps to safety through a window while Milo and Marilyn are chased by Papa’s men.
