On tonight’s episode of 24: Live Another Day, terrorist Margot Al-Harazi orders President Heller to surrender himself at a place of her choosing or risk the lives of thousand of Londoners. Jack Bauer tells Heller he can possibly make contact with Margot, but the President isn’t too keen on his plan.
The following takes place between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
1. Kate and Chloe Find the Proof
Jack manages to slip Kate Morgan the flight key before the U.S. Marines blast in to capture him, and she quickly exits the embassy to reconnect the download for Chloe O’Brian. The remaining 23 percent from the key downloads and Adrian Cross (feeling some regret for screwing Jack over earlier) locates the override code, used to hack the into the drones, embedded in the other ones and zeros scrolling across the screen.

Kate sends the highlighted override code back to CIA headquarters to confirm the information with Agent Navarro and Jordan Reed. Navarro’s confident with Kate’s assessment and calls up the President to alert him of the situation.
2. Margot Takes Command of the Drones
Naveed didn’t learn his lesson from his wife Simone’s little torture session, and goes against Margot’s wishes again. This time, he makes the IP address on the video Margot sends to President Heller visible, so the CIA can track down her location. The plan would have worked if her son Ian hadn’t seen the mistake and redirected the IP address to another location.

The CIA, led by Agents Navarro and Erik Ritter, take a team out to infiltrate the suspected estate of Margot, but the British terrorist sends a deadly surprise to meet them instead of finding her.
Kate finds the ease of locating the IP address suspicious and calls up her new partner in crime Chloe to look into it. Chloe’s boss and boyfriend Cross doesn’t want her working with the CIA anymore, but even though she has no plans to leave her hacktivist group, she’s committed to the mission at hand.

Chloe finds Ian’s redirect code, and notifies Kate, who alerts Navarro to evacuate the area because it’s really a trap. A few of Navarro’s men get out, but Margot has Ian target the house with a drone and blows up the estate with agents still inside.
This time, Margot will have Naveed pay for his own mistakes with a bullet to the head. Even a last minute plea to his wife Simone to save his life won’t work, as she’s too far under her mother’s spell to against her wishes. He won’t need to worry about killing thousands of innocent civilians anymore.
