After four years of searching, the CIA captures the fugitive Jack Bauer in London, England, but one agent suspects that he may have a hidden agenda. President James Heller prepares for a critical summit with the British Prime Minister.


The CIA raids a factory


East London. In a crowded marketplace near the East London Mosque, several plainclothes CIA operatives converge on a boarded-up factory beneath a rail bridge.

CIA London station. Agents gather to watch a live feed from the field team. Steve Navarro, head of the station, asks Jordan Reed about their real-time tracking. Reed says that he has access to a British satellite. In her office, Kate Morgan is packing her personal effects into a box when Mariana enters to say that she will need Morgan's pass codes and decryption keys before she leaves at the end of the week. Morgan asks what is going on in the main room, and Mariana tells her a high value suspect is being tracked, possibly linked to the President's presence in the city.

Back at the factory, an agent disguised as a vagrant throws a camera drone into the building. The other agents, led by Erik Ritter, ready their weapons while agent Nash navigates the robot toward a sleeping figure. After confirming the man's identity, Ritter leads the agents inside, dispersing a group of vagrants squatting inside.

After spotting their target headed down a set of stairs, Agent Miller moves to pursue, only to be assaulted and knocked out. The CIA station watches on Miller's gun camera as the person moves into view: Jack Bauer. Running for the exit, Jack then takes out Armstrong and Cutler, before pushing a metal door into a fourth agent and knocking him out.

Back in the substation, Kate says that he will likely head for the building's roof, as it offers the best chance of escape. Just then, Ritter radios that Jack is running for the exit closest to the river. Confused, Morgan says that doesn't make sense, and Navarro shushes her.

Jack Bauer is apprehended

Jack breaks out of the building and jumps a railing, heading for the riverbank. Within a few moments, two more agents approach on a raft, while others surround him on all sides and Ritter fires warning shots to stop his escape. Jack kneels and places his hands behind his head.

The following takes place
between 11:06 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

Events occur in real time.

A large group of protesters are gathered outside of Willoughby House, where Mark Boudreau is telling President James Heller that the Prime Minister is pressuring parliament into extending the lease of the Diego Garcia military base. He mentions that people are uncomfortable with the military using drones, and Heller replies that although he agrees what they are doing is working. General Coburn says that the Chinese do not want them in the area, and are intimidating the British. Heller mentions that Franklin Roosevelt did a similar thing during his presidency and the meeting is adjourned. Boudreau then approaches Heller and corrects him, telling him it was Theodore Roosevelt. Heller brushes off the mistake, then orders Mark to stop worrying about him.

President Heller jokes with Boudreau

Ron Clark then passes Boudreau a call from Steve Navarro, who tells him Jack Bauer has been taken into custody. Mark speculated that Bauer is in London to do the president harm, and orders Navarro to transfer Bauer over to the Special Activities unit at the CIA site. He asks Navarro to keep the situation on a need-to-know basis, an order he repeats to Clark, explicitly forbidding him from telling the President.

Back at CIA, Kate Morgan is reviewing the footage of Bauer escaping. She congratulates Navarro on capturing Bauer, before voicing her concerns that his actions before getting caught seemed suspicious, and he may be up to something. In a car heading towards the station, Jack stares out of the window at the city of London.

11:11:30... 11:11:31... 11:11:32...


U.S. Air Force Base, Lower Heyford, U.K. A young drone pilot, Chris Tanner, enters a control room where his colleague Peter Dennon tells him that Shepherd wants to speak to him. Tanner takes over the controls of a drone from Dennon, who wished him luck with Shepherd and leaves the room.

Kajaki Province, Afghanistan. Shepherd receives a call from Tanner, and admonishes him for not informing the British Air Command of his orders. He calls it another dereliction of duty, and revokes Tanner's weekend pass making him stay on the base until further notice. Tanner hangs up in disbelief.


Steve Navarro tells Mariana to send Bauer's file to Mark Boudreau and set Bauer up in an interrogation room, explaining that he plans to get what he can out of Bauer before he is transferred. Jack is driven into the station. Kate Morgan watches his entrance while shredding papers.


Erik Ritter orders Jack to be locked down in interrogation. Kate then asks him for the original intercept from Prague that gave them Bauer's location. He guesses that she wants it because of Jack not heading to the roof, and tells her she isn't cleared to have it. Jordan Reed then shows her a video of Jack being taken into an interrogation room.

Steve Navarro questions Jack


Ritter then tells Navarro that Kate was asking for the intercept, and inquires if she is still being transferred back to America. Navarro sees through Ritter's questions, telling him that he will still get Kate's job, but he should try to learn from her before she leaves. Ritter then doubts her competency as an agent, as she didn't notice that her husband was selling secrets to the Chinese. Navarro asks Ritter to cut her some slack for a few days.

In her office, Kate finds a picture of her husband. Jordan enters and gives her the intercept she asked for, then tells her that he doesn't agree with her transfer and that she deserves to stay. Morgan examines the intercept and notices that the timestamp on the intercept doesn't match, meaning it wasn't sent from Prague.

Steve Navarro then enters interrogation, where a polygraph tech tells him Bauer's readings are static. Steve enters and tells Jack that many people want to make him pay for the crimes he committed four years ago, but all he wants to know is if Jack means to harm President Heller. Jack remains silent, as Navarro reasons with him, explaining that if he talks then he will stop the Special Activities interrogation.

Chloe is tortured

A messenger then enters the Special Activities basement and hands Dean Bauer's file. Dean takes it and enters a room where Chloe O'Brian is strapped to a table. He asks her where the rest of her group is, before injecting her with a chemical that caues her to cry out in pain.

11:24:24... 11:24:25... 11:24:26...



Mark Boudreau is reviewing Bauer's file when Audrey, his wife, tells him that she is almost ready. He brings her jewelry box to her, fastening a necklace on her and telling her that she looks too good to go to a reception for politicians. She asks how her father is doing, mentioning the mistake he made in their meeting, but Mark brushes it off. He tells her the doctors predicted he wouldn't be symptomatic for another year, and not to worry. Ron Clark then enters to give Mark an update on Bauer, and tells Audrey that her car is waiting.

Audrey and Mark


Ron then tells Mark the transfer has been processed and Special Activities should have Bauer shortly. Mark then puts forward the idea that after his interrogation, Bauer should be covertly handed over to the Russians. Ron then says that the President should be consulted, but Mark explains that Jack destroyed their family by leaving Audrey in a catatonic state for three years. He says that he brought her back to herself, and that as long as she lives he doesn't want her to hear Jack Bauer's name.

Heller then exits the building with Audrey, walking past the anti-drone protesters. They get into cars and drive away.

Steve continues to interrogate Bauer, saying he can arrange for him to see Kim, his daughter, who has just had a baby boy. Jack continues to not react.

Morgan argues with Navarro

Back on the main floor, Reed tells Kate that the intercept originated from an internet café three blocks from Jack's arrest location. She speculated that Jack sent the message himself, and she walks off to inform Navarro. She summons him out of the interrogation and explains that the intercept was planted. Steve is skeptical of her idea that Jack sent it himself, but as the transfer order arrives Kate runs into the room and locks him out. She confronts Jack and tells him she knows he is after something in the facility. Jack's polygraph spikes, and she demands to know who he has come here to find. Navarro then gets back into the room and orders her out. She tries to explain that she is right, but he shuts her down by saying she is transferring her frustration about her husband's betrayal onto Bauer. When she refuses to let it go, he orders her out of the building.

11:36:33... 11:36:34... 11:36:35...


Erik Ritter escorts Jack out of holding. As Kate is being led out also, she grabs the guard's stun gun and knocks him out, pulling him into a nearby room. She phones Reed and asks him to run a search on anyone in the building with past connections to Jack.

Outside, a man named Belcheck attaches a device to a power outlet. As Ritter walks Bauer down the stairs, he expresses his admiration for Jack's past achievements. Jack then presses a hidden device in his wrist, which activates a homing signal on Belcheck's computer. Belcheck types and the lights suddenly out, giving Bauer the opportunity to overcome the men holding him.

Jack Bauer attacks Agent Dean

Dean opens the door to receive the prisoner, but is confronted by Jack holding a gun. He demands to be taken to Chloe, and tells Dean if he triggers an alarm Jack will blow his head off. They enter the room and Jack knocks Dean out, noticing that Chloe is unconscious. He grabs a syringe of adrenalin and injects it into her heart, reviving her. He tells her they need to leave.

Jordan is on the phone to Kate, telling him he found out the person Jack is after is Chloe O'Brian, a free information hacker who is responsible for leaking DoD files. Kate realizes Jack is trying to break her out, and runs down to Special Activities to find Ritter and Brandon unconscious. She tells Reed to initiate a Level 5 lockdown.

Jack's partner clears a path

As alarms ring out, Navarro is brought up to speed on the situation. Outside, Belcheck climbs onto his van and grabs a grenade launcher. Jack tells Chloe to take cover as he breaks open a gas pipe. He shoots his gun at Kate, igniting the gas and causing an explosion. Belcheck readies his gun as Kate corners Jack and makes him drop his weapon. As she asks where Chloe is, Belcheck fires and blasts through the floor, knocking Kate down. He lowers a ladder, which Jack and Chloe climb up into the van, and they make their escape before Kate can stop them. She fires shots after their retreating vehicle.

11:48:51... 11:48:52... 11:48:53...


Heller and Audrey sit in the back of the car as the President tells her how much he loves the city. She asks him about the mistake he made earlier, and he tells her his condition is progressing more quickly than they anticipated. He tells her he is terrified of slowly losing himself, but all he wants is to lock up the treaty with the British. He asks her not to say anything to Mark.


The CIA station is in chaos after the explosion, and medics treat the wounded. Reed tells Navarro they are running recovery protocols, but Kate says they won't be able to track down Jack as he knows their systems too well. She asks for all of Special Activities' information about Chloe. When Ritter tells her she isn't part of their team anymore, she asks to speak to Navarro alone.

She asks Steve to allow her to track down Jack as she is their best shot of getting him back. He tells her she is under a microscope, but she threatens to tell Boudreau that he didn't listen to her heads-up about Bauer's motives. He considers her proposal.


In the van, Jack tells Belcheck to pull over at the end of the block. He gives Chloe a phone and tells her to get somewhere safe by herself, and that he will meet up with her later. He asks Belcheck if they have a signal from her phone transmitter, and he tells Jack they should have just asked for her help. Jack says he couldn't take the chance she'd say no, as he doesn't consider her a friend.

A drone flies through the sky in Afghanistan, piloted by Tanner. As he finishes escorting Shepherd's convoy and tries to move the drone away, he loses control of it. He watches as it targets Shepherd's vehicle and arms one of its Hellfire missiles. He calls Shepherd to warn him about the impending attack, but before they can react the drone fires and destroys an armored vehicle. Tanner cries out in shock.

The aftermath of a drone strike

Split screen: Tanner despondently watches the destruction on his screen. Belcheck drives the van with Jack in the back. Navarro hands Morgan back her CIA keycard. Heller looks troubled, as drone protesters continue shouting.

In Kajaki Province, the squadron is taking casualties and trying to revive their wounded men. A large crater is smoking in the desert. A man is watching the destruction on a computer screen; he speaks into a phone, telling someone that "it's done."

Background information and notes[]


Story and script[]

  • The writing process for the premiere began on July 1, 2013. David Fury first pitched the episode as "6:30-7:30", which would have made it the first episode to begin during an hour rather than on it. [2] The episode was later referred to as "12:00pm-1:00pm" and "9:00am-10:00am" before the final start time of 11:00am was established.
  • "11:00am-12:00pm" is the first episode of 24 that is not set, at least in part, in the United States or North America.
  • This is the only other episode besides 24: Redemption to begin with a pre-title sequence. In addition, this is the only episode where the "The following takes place..." title describes a range less than one hour, as it appears after the pre-title sequence.
  • Jack Bauer has no spoken lines until about 31 minutes into the episode, when he takes Agent Dean hostage: "Take me to her now."
  • When Jack sees Chloe for the first time, this marks Jack Bauer's first Damn it during the 24: Live Another Day series.

Props and minutiae[]

The full list of kills, from a Fox promotional video

  • Mark Boudreau views a dossier of Jack Bauer and a list of his confirmed kills, consisting of nearly all of the named characters Jack kills in the first eight seasons of 24. The list excludes characters that were never identified onscreen, and also supposes that Jack did not have any confirmed kills between seasons. Curiously, Scott and Chris (killed in "Day 2: 11:00am-12:00pm") are given last names, while other single-name characters are not. Some people are absent from the list, including Marshall Goren, Alex Hewitt, Specter (behind the scenes only), Ed and Abu Fayed. Jon Cassar described the graphics as being lifted from 24 Wiki and the Internet, and they were put in as a nod to the fans on the Internet who compile such lists. [3]

Errors and inconsistencies[]

  • On Jack's personnel file, Graem Bauer's name is spelled as "Graeme."
  • There are multiple geographical inconsistencies at the beginning of the episode: it is implied that the CIA have tracked Jack down to a warehouse near the East London Mosque, but Erik Ritter and his men are shown wandering around Shepherd's Bush Market in West London on the other side of town. When Jack escapes from the building, he runs a short distance to the River Thames, but both the mosque and the market are about a mile from the river. Steve Navarro then tells Mark Boudreau that Jack was captured 20 km southeast of Central London, which contradicts all of the above. Finally, when Jordan Reed is showing Kate Morgan aerial photography of the warehouse, the building he highlights is a mixed-use residential and retail block next to Bermondsey tube station in South London.
  • While Tanner claims the drone he operates is MQ-1, its real image and the onscreen silhouette appears to be a RQ-170 Sentinel, and not a MQ-1 (C Gray Eagle).
  • When Kate calls Jordan to ask him to look into potential connections to Jack within the CIA building, the time on her phone is wrong, as it says 8:34.[2]
  • The U.S. Marines are wearing white undershirts underneath their camouflage uniforms, when they should be green instead.
