Day 2 Edit
Shortly before Day 2 began, terrorists Mamud Rasheed Faheen and Syed Ali smuggled in and attempted to detonate a nuclear bomb inside the United States. They succeeded in their mission because Max and American businessman Peter Kingsley were able to manipulate government officials, including Roger Stanton, into letting the bomb enter the country as part of a bigger scheme to raise oil prices due to the war that was bound to ensue from the effects.
Marie Warner, an American woman, was also involved with Second Wave. After her mother died, she met Ali, who convinced her of the righteousness of their cause. Marie managed to smuggle funds from her father's company, Warner Enterprises, to finance Second Wave activities.
Day 4 Edit
Tomas Sherek and Atef El-Khabir were members of the Second Wave terrorist group. Sherek was one of the coordinators of the kidnapping of Secretary of Defense James Heller, while El-Khabir worked with Marwan at a club called The Hub.
Background information and notes Edit
- Palmer mentions that there were three Second Wave camps operating unimpeded within the Middle Eastern country that unofficially backed its efforts.
- The name is most likely derived from the Second Wave of the Apocalypse mentioned in the quatrains of Nostradamus.
- The concept of a terrorist cell being manipulated by clandestine Western supporters who seek to profit from oil deals re-appears later in Season 5.
