24 Legacy: S1 E5
Eric/Ben: Ben is acting sketchy and Eric can tell. They stopped at a gas station (I miss Valero!!) so they can get scissors in order for Ben to trim his beard. Priorities, ya’ll. Ben and Eric go to meet Gabriel’s crew. They are not very trusting. We meet Gabriel who is a complete badass and mad at Ben for a betrayal—which he tells Ben to tell Eric about. Ben owes Gabriel 50k for an arms deal gone wrong. Eric is about to kill Ben himself at this point. Gabriel is willing to do business with Eric—so long as he kills Ben. Yikes! Eric can’t do it because Ben is his homeboy. Gabriel respects Eric’s loyalty to Ben…for five seconds and his crew kills Ben!!!
Eric gives Gabriel the codes to the arms and then pulls a gun on him! He asks Gabriel about smuggling arms and Ben Khalid into the country, but Gabriel denies everything. Eric calls CTU to the rescue. Gabriel says he has morals and doesn’t do business with terrorists. He pressed his go-go gadget watch to alert his boys that he’s in trouble—luckily CTU is flying in at the same time. Eric shoots Gabriel in the knee during confrontation (ouch!) and then Gabriel slits his own throat!! Double ouch!! CTU tries to get information off the computer, which starts wiping itself! Luckily Eric uses Gabriel’s finger as a verification and stops the wipe. Beep beep.
CTU: Rebecca tells Nilaa that CTU found out the tape was tapered. Nilaa is hella salty. Meanwhile, Keith is mad that Eric and Ben are MIA. He accuses Rebecca of being involved, and she all “I don’t know her.” They call up Eric and Eric gives them some coordinates for the tactical team to stand by. Keith confronts Andy about helping Eric but can’t completely prove it; however, he removes all of Andy’s security credentials.
John’s daddy (Henry) has been arrested and Rebecca him (like this is even realistic *eyeroll*). Now, he’s lying on John—saying he wasn’t involved in anything. John is fuming and busted in there! Ya own daddy is calling you a liar.
Nicole/Aisha/Isaac: Isaac wants Aisha and Jerome! He’s now threatening Jerome’s little brother and grabbing phones from his crew. Oh boy. Aisha caused all sorts of unnecessary mess. Nicole calls Eric and tells him that she’s ready to bounce. He tells her to go to Christine’s. But before she goes, Eric’s homeboy tells her to stay to help get Isaac on track. Nicole tries to talk to Isaac about his paranoia, but he pushes her around! Nicole is ready to bounce again and Isaac stops her and is apologetic. Isaac convinces her to stay and she threatens him (“don’t ever touch me again”) like a boss.
Amira: Amira’s feeling a little bad about killing ole boy (I already forgot his name again). We then meet her daddy and he’s checking in to see if she’s still doing well in school (what???) unlike her brother, Khasan. Khasan doesn’t trust his own daddy coming out of nowhere and daddy doesn’t trust him. Dad believes his son is involved him bomb-making and slaps him for lying. Then they fight! Khasan takes down his own dad and gets Amira to help duct tape him. Savage. Dad later gives Amira the guilt trip of the century, but it didn’t work. The episode ends with Khasan getting an activation code to lead the sleeper cell attack.
Khalid’s people: They have 15 cells! And they want to launch them all at once! They’re still trying to retrieve the information from the USB. Ya’ll need some Geek Squad action. Later, someone on the team encrypted the USB. Someone’s got to go…and did.
Highlights: R.I.P. Ben.
