The 12-hour miniseries of “24: Live Another Day” finally wrapped up. Season 9 Episode 12 “10:00 PM-11:00 PM aired on Monday, July 14, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on FOX. Read on for the full recap of this episode.
In the previous episode (“9:00 PM-10:00 PM“), Audrey was taken as hostage by Cheng. Now Jack and Kate were on overdrive mode. They had to get to Audrey right away. Bauer discovered a secret phone and got a phone call from Cheng who told him that if they tried to stop him from doing his plans, Audrey would be shot dead.
Time was ticking with the Chinese navy ships moving towards Okinawa, but Heller was not backing down.
Kate went on her way to take out the sniper and saved Audrey, while Jack went to the boat. Luckily, Kate was able to take down the sniper, but she was shocked to find a second shooter. Because of this, Audrey was shot. This was shocking because Audrey was one of the few people left in Jack’s life, and now she’s dead.
Jack snuck out in Cheng’s boat with Belcheck and Chloe who were giving him surveillance report. Thinking that they had outsmarted Cheng, they were proven wrong when Cheng jammed the transmission and sent his men after Jack. Right at that very moment, Jack received a phone call about Audrey’s death, which angered him even more and went on a killing spree until he got to Cheng. And how did he end up Cheng’s life? Using a katana sword, he beheaded him.
Just when things were starting to go right and they were able to prove to the Chinese that the U.S. did not bomb the carrier, Chloe was kidnapped, and Heller found out about the death of his daughter. After that, the show did a 12-hour jump. We saw Kate quitting the CIA, Boudreu was in federal prison, and Heller escorting his daughter’s coffin to Air Force One for their journey back home. To make things worse, he told Prime Minister Davies that his disease will make him lose memories of his daughter.
Meanwhile, Jack met up with Chloe’s kidnappers. Surprise! Surprise! It’s the Russians! He turned himself in to free Chloe. The Russians took him away, and that’s it. This means only one thing though — “24: Live Another Day” is not over yet.
