Jack and Audrey: A Look Back - 24 Spoilers
Live Another Day is easily accessible to newbs, with only a few threads leading back to the show's original Worse, the agency had a serious mole problem. . Jack's relationship with Audrey was tricky from the get-go. Audrey Raines is a fictional character played by actress Kim Raver on the When Audrey learns that Jack is still alive, it is evident that she still but Jack told her of the White House's connection to Henderson. When Heller began to have trouble breathing, Audrey was convinced he was After being confronted by Paul on her relationship with Jack, Audrey decides to.
She later learned that Paul came to Los Angeles to see her, but was told by Jack that Paul may have ties with the terrorists.
She witnessed Jack torture Paul, and was eventually torn between the two, since Paul attempted to win Audrey back. However, after Paul helped Jack, Paul was shot, and after learning that Paul needed support, she decided to remain at Paul's side. However, this plan went awry when Jack ordered all the CTU medical personnel, who were operating on Paul, to leave him and treat the grievously injured suspect Lee Jong instead. Paul died, which infuriated Audrey to the point of leaving Jack, despite still having feelings for him.
She was devastated when she learned Jack was killed, not knowing that his death was a ruse that would remain undiscovered for the next eighteen months. Season 5[ edit ] Eighteen months later, during season 5Audrey is still working for the Department of Defense.
When Audrey learns that Jack is still alive, it is evident that she still has feelings for him. A power struggle ensues between her and a new CTU chief, Lynn McGilluntil the latter is forcibly relieved of command. Later on, she was implicated in the ongoing terrorist attacks by Collette Stenger, a terrorist collaborator, who said that Audrey supplied her with building schematics to sell to Vladimir Bierko.
Karen suggested that they use torture. She was tied up and tortured for a while until the proper evidence was found that proved that she was innocent. Bauer helped to clear Audrey of any suspicion. She was not immediately put back to work, in order to recover from the effects of the torturing chemical.
Because of her DOD ties, Audrey was unaffected.
Audrey initially refused, but Jack told her of the White House's connection to Henderson, and that she and Chloe O'Brian were the only ones he could trust. In order to keep Chloe at her position, she agreed to sign the confession. With Chloe's help, Audrey removed a tracking device from her car and escaped satellite detection. She called her father on his private jet and told him that it was urgent she speak to him personally. Jack contacted her shortly after recovering evidence implicating Logan, and she told him to meet Heller at Van Nuys Airport to hand off the evidence to him.
After giving the tape to one of his guards, Secretary Heller had Jack and Audrey detained by his guards while he went off to confront Logan. Jack escaped and managed to recover the tape, but Henderson and his men arrived at the airport, taking Audrey hostage.
In an effort to get Jack to hand over the recording, Henderson cut the brachial artery in Audrey's left arm, which would have led to her death in three minutes. Before she bled to death, Jack handed over the tape.
After Henderson escaped, Jack put a tourniquet on her arm, saving her life. When Jack later apprehended Henderson with Audrey at his sideHenderson said that he had his men on standby orders to kill James Heller if he did not contact them every fifteen minutes. Jack informs Heller about the situation, but Heller asks Jack to tell his daughter that he loves her, raising a red flag.
When Jack asks over the phone with Chloe O'Brian to see if Heller had driven his car off the road from her satellite visual, it is confirmed that he did.
Audrey went into a breakdown of grief, insisting that Jack should shoot Henderson if he would not give Jack the incriminating recording. It is later learned that Henderson had given the recording to another person. Jack claimed he had to stay and wait until Curtis Manning and his team could collect Henderson, but Audrey retorts that if the recording is not recovered, then her father would have died for nothing.
Jack left Audrey alone with the recording, and Henderson's men eventually pinpoint their boss' location, pressuring Audrey to flee the scene.
She attempted to assassinate Henderson before his men arrived, but her moral sense proved too strong. Audrey was rescued by Curtis Manning and his tactical team as soon as Henderson ordered his men to close in on her. Audrey later discovers at CTU from Curtis that her father survived going over the cliff, but remains in critical condition. At the end of the day, with the crisis seemingly over, she reunites with Jack and the two share a passionate kiss.
Jack is notified by a Federal agent that his daughter Kim is calling him.

Jack leaves Audrey to take the call. Several minutes later, Audrey goes to check on Jack and is horrified to find him missing. She is unaware that he has been abducted by the Chinese officials who had somehow learned that he was still alive. Season 6[ edit ] When Jack asked about Audrey upon his return to Los Angeles, Bill Buchanan replied that she did not know he was back yet.
Jack requested that he keep it that way. Chloe O'Brian tells him it was Audrey who discovered that the Chinese government had kidnapped him and had been working through diplomatic back channels to secure Jack's release, although it was unclear at the time as to whether the Chinese government was involved in her death. Later in the day, after Jack secures the last two nuclear suitcases, Doyle gives Jack Bauer a call that he says is coming through a CTU switchboard, but is actually Audrey Raines.
Cheng informs Jack that Audrey is still alive, but if he wishes to keep her alive Jack must call him back on a given number the infamous 24 fan phone when he is alone. Jack, not telling anyone that he had been contacted by the Chinese and Audrey, calls Cheng back and is told that a component from the nukes will have to be exchanged for the release of Audrey. Bauer agrees and requests help from Chloe O'Brian to get the plans for the chip.
Morris O'Brian catches Chloe accessing his files, and persuades her to tell Buchanan. Buchanan has Jack arrested, but grants his wish to contact President Wayne Palmer. They worked together at CTU, so they had a lot in common. She was headstrong and clever, the rare woman who could match Jack in that department. It's little wonder that during a problem patch in the Bauer marriage, the two embarked on an affair. Of course, there was the little matter of Nina being an amoral traitor who wound up killing Teri at the end of Season One.
Even for a man who has seen and done a good many unforgivable things, this proved to be a dealbreaker for Jack, who ended up killing Nina himself in order to save Kim. On a different show, say, one with a psychopath at its center, Nina would have been just perfect. But while she would have been the one to call if you needed a government official assassinated with a bobby pin, she definitely wasn't the girl you bring home to Mom.
Kate, who became Jack's unwilling sidekick when the crisis in Season Two ended up involving members of her family, wasn't even the worst-written female character during that year that honor goes to the immortal Kim Bauer, Jack's apple-fell-real-far-from-the-tree daughterbut the lack of chemistry with Sutherland was hard to ignore, and many fans didn't want Jack to have a love interest so soon after Teri's death anyway.
Perhaps the strain of having to suppress her native accent Wynter is Australian was part of the problem here. Kate was brought back for what amounted to a cameo in the opening episode of Season Three in order to get across the message that this relationship was not going to happen after all. The longest lasting of the Bauer girlfriends and the one who was clearly put through the most hell, Audrey grated on most fans, and I could never quite understand why.
Jack was indirectly responsible for the death of her ex-husband, something viewers who knew the big picture could justify but no doubt had to look a little fishy for Audrey. She was relatively willing to forgive him for faking his death and going undercover for the better part of two years, demonstrating the forebearance required of all Bauer ladies. Raver is a fine actress, and she and Sutherland had good chemistry even when the plots were at their most ludicrous.
Unfortunately, Audrey's fate, a living hell where she was tortured by memories of her brutal captivity at the hands of the Chinese, sent the message to Jack that any woman who became involved with him was doomed to a life of continual danger. Listing everything wrong with this season would take a separate article, but nothing made less sense than finding out that superpatriot Jack had both a traitorous father and brother. Or that his brother Graem looked like Paul McCrane.
And that Graem's wife Marilyn clearly had some sort of past with Jack, complete with a teenage son who looked a lot like Sutherland.
