The Long Day is Over
The return of Nina Meyers: In Day 2, Nina made a surprise return and quickly became the defining villain of 24. Day 2 saw Meyers strike a plea bargain with President Palmer that would grant immunity in her future murder of Jack Bauer. Nina appeared again and had some memorable moments in Day 3, particularly when she escaped from a CTU operating room by ramming her neck into a syringe and then taking out the surgical team with a scalpel.
Charles Logan: In the early hours of Day 5, Gregory Itzin’s Charles Logan seemed like a spineless and weak President of the Untied States. His relationship with his wife, Martha Logan (Jean Smart), was also as dysfunctional and entertaining as that of David and Sherry Palmer. The final episodes of Day 5 revealed that Logan himself had orchestrated the terrorist acts to further his own goals, and once Logan was exposed for his crimes, Jack had his best rival since Nina Meyers.
