Here is where we stand:
Jack Bauer managed to save Simone (code name “Pinky Stump”) from her Evil Drone Mom, who tried to kill Simone with missiles in an excellent car chase that required Jack to requisition two civilian vehicles, whose owners will no doubt be fully reimbursed by the United States government for any collateral damage caused by missiles or getting punched in the face. Jack is now supposed to meet with President William Devane, who appears to be about to turn himself over to Margot in exchange for not wreaking any more special effects on downtown London.
The Russians still want Jack.
Navarro is still the mole and is doing mole things with that other guy. We frankly do not understand this part of the plot.
Agent Kate Morgan is still very capable.
Edgar is still dead.
We will be providing updates during tonight’s episode as plot developments develop. Stay tuned in the comments afterward for The Amazing Steve’s amazing recap.
In conclusion: Go Heat USA soccer team!
UPDATE: The Amazing Steve writes that "If you count the movie Redemption, tonight is the 200th hour of 24."
UPDATE: "These are more like Kaiser rolls than doughnuts." Ooooh, BURN.
UPDATE: Who the hell turns in doughnuts with NO FILLING???
UPDATE: ANOTHER drill?
UPDATE: President Devane is lucky Jack didn't deck him.
UPDATE: OK, with all due respect to the writers, why would Terror Mom care what anybody thinks, seeing as how she is a psychotic mass murderer?
UPDATE: "So wake the bitch up." Whoa.
UPDATE: This is really not Simone's day.
UPDATE: "We need a drill and a soldering iron STAT."
UPDATE: Mark of course can get the codes for Wembley Stadium.
UPDATE: So is Audrey in charge of the government? Or what?
UPDATE: The Secret Service detail plugs right into Jack's phone.
UPDATE: HOLY CRAP JACK IS CUTTING OPEN THE PRESIDENT.
UPDATE: The president, like everybody else on this show, heals in seconds.
UPDATE: Right. It's easy for the president of the United Freaking States to walk away from all his security. Because they never think to cover... the back door!

UPDATE: Didn't Kate get stabbed in the leg like 90 minutes ago?
UPDATE: It's nice the way Terror Mom praises her son when he reactivates the drones.
UPDATE: Fortunately, a helicopter landing in Wembley Stadium would not draw any attention.
UPDATE: Is it just me, or does Audrey have weird nostrils?
UPDATE: This is some very fine overacting.
UPDATE: Seriously, something has been done to those nostrils.
UPDATE: "End of the road, Jack." WHO WRITES THIS STUFF?
UPDATE: Chloe has managed to resolve the data pack into three screens! BUT WE'RE OUT OF TIME!
UPDATE: And the president is tackled by Wayne Rooney!
