Outcome: Sniper Jonathan Matijevich had Jack Bauer arm his weapon so it would have his fingerprints. But when he was about to fire at Palmer, Bauer created a diversion by grabbing the gun of a Secret Service agent, causing Palmer to pulled from the stage in time.
The first two attacks of Day 2 were carried out by the terrorist organization Second Wave and their leader Syed Ali, but were ultimately orchestrated by a cabal of businessmen led by Peter Kingsley, Alexander Trepkos, and Max. Their intention was to lead the US into a war with the Middle East thus raising the prices of oil, and subsequently their profits.
Outcome:Jack Bauer intercepted the bomb at Norton Airfield and when they couldn't deactivate it, he offered himself to fly a plane with the nuclear bomb over the Mojave Desert to detonate it in a safe place. George Mason got himself in the plane without Jack noticing it and volunteered himself to do it, while Jack parachuted to safety.
The attacks of Day 3 were all orchestrated by Stephen Saunders who wanted revenge against the United States when they didn't negotiate to release him from a Bosnian prison. To achieve this, he acquired the Cordilla virus from Michael Amador and handed it to several couriers he sent across the country.
Outcome:David Palmer refused to officially release Ramon because of the terrorist threat, but covertly sanctioned Jack Bauer to break him out as part of a sting operation to re-establish his cover with the Salazar family.
Outcome: Just when Gael Ortega was about to deactivate the device with the virus, it released the virus into the Hotel ventilation system infecting most of the guests. One of the guests managed to get out infecting more people along the way.
Purpose: Stephen Saunders threatened to release the virus in several US states if President David Palmer didn't comply with his demands. Complying with Stephen's early, simpler demands, Palmer had Secret Service retrieve a special phone, and then spoke a code phrase in the news. Later, he ordered that Palmer have CTU executive Ryan Chappelle executed, while the final and primary demand was to release the list of covert US agents in different countries.
Outcome: Although Jack Bauer did execute Ryan Chappelle as part of Saunders' demands, Palmer refused to comply with the final demand, and CTU Agents around the country captured or killed all of Saunders' couriers before they released the virus.
Outcome: Although Jack Bauer stopped the execution from happening, the real purpose was to overload Internet servers to load a virus that would give them control of nuclear reactors around the country. Seven of Heller's bodyguards were killed during the kidnap.
Outcome:Mitch Anderson successfully shot down Air Force One, although his plane was shot down too shortly after. Anderson ejected his parachute on time, but his fate was unknown. Habib Marwan's men retrieved the nuclear football at the site of the crash shortly after.
Outcome: Two security guards were killed during the initial assault, and three hostages were subsequently executed by the terrorists to demonstrate their seriousness. Although Jack Bauer and CTU managed to save the majority of the hostages, it was revealed later that the siege was a diversion for more terrorists to retrieve canisters of Sentox nerve gas hidden at the airport.
Outcome:Jack Bauer managed to delay the release of the nerve gas and minimized its dispersion after it was released, going against the orders of President Charles Logan, though 11 people in the mall's food court were fatally exposed.
Purpose: Vladimir Bierko intended to use a canister of Sentox nerve gas in the hospital to distract authorities from his other activities.
Outcome:Curtis Manning successfully intercepted the canister and released it in a safe place, but as a consequence of the attack, he and his team couldn't get his men to save CTU in time, leaving Jack to do it himself.
Purpose: Vladimir Bierko intended to use a canister of Sentox nerve gas in the CTU building to cripple their attempts to stop him.
Outcome:Jack Bauer killed Ostroff but the nerve gas was released into the ventilation elsewhere. Chloe O'Brian managed to seal some areas of the building, but the gas still killed 40% of CTU personnel.
Outcome:Jack Bauer and Curtis Manning managed to destroy the pipelines before it reached its destination. Bierko was arrested by CTU. The only non-terrorist fatalities were a security guard killed as the terrorists entered the plant, two workers killed to coerce the plant manager into co-operating, and two members of CTU's response team who were gunned down during their assault.
Purpose: Vladimir Bierko purchased schematics to the Russian submarine Natalia and used his last nerve gas canister to kill the crew. He planned to use the submarine non-nuclear armament against US targets.
Outcome: This bombing was meant to be one of four in a chain of rapid terrorist attacks orchestrated by Abu Fayed. Jack Bauer managed to intercept the bomber, Nasir Trabelsi, and kick him out of the train and into the tunnel were the bomb detonated without casualties.
Outcome:Hasan Numair managed to detonate the bomb during a raid at his warehouse, although not at the intended target. An unintended side-effect of the detonation was the elimination of most of CTU's response teams, compromising their operations for the rest of the day.
Outcome: Although Palmer survived the attack, he was critically injured, and Assad was killed by the bomb. Several members of Palmer's staff and Secret Service agents were also injured by the blast, though it was unclear whether their injuries were fatal.
Outcome: Josh was temporarily taken, but Jack Bauer and some hostages wiped out Zhou and his mercenaries. Josh was rescued shortly after, though Cheng fled before he could be captured. At least three security guards were killed as well as Milo Pressman, who was executed after falsely identifying himself as the CTU Director.
Outcome: President Taylor still refused to negotiate with Dubaku, while Jack Bauer and Renee Walker found the location of Henry Taylor. However, he was still shot in the chest by a terrorist putting him in critical condition.
Purpose: General Benjamin Juma and his Presidential guard sieged the White House to force President Allison Taylor to condemn her invasion on Sangala in a video confession. He then planned on murdering her.
Outcome: Many White House staff and Secret Service agents were killed, and the President was aired delivering Juma's speech for some time. Bill Buchanan sacrificed himself to create a distraction while Jack Bauer and Aaron Pierce saved the President.
Purpose:Jonas Hodges threatened to fire Python missiles loaded with prion variant at several eastern coast cities if President Allison Taylor didn't appoint him and Starkwood as a defense organization of the US.
Outcome:Tony Almeida managed to rig the rocket launchers with C-4 and detonate it right before they were fired.
Purpose:Alan Wilson and his cabal of conspirators planned to release the remaining canister of prion variant at a Washington DC subway station to create further chaos, forcing the US to raise their dependence of defense contractors.
Outcome:Tony Almeida was captured, and Jack Bauer helped the courier Jibraan Al-Zarian to take the canister into safety. Jack finally threw the canister into an enclosed CDC vehicle where it dispersed safely.
The attacks during Day 8 were thought to be orchestrated by a Kamistan splinter cell led by Samir Mehran working within the US. Their intention was to either kill President Omar Hassan or force him to back out of a peace treaty with the United States. It was later revealed that the whole scheme was devised by the Russian government, including President Yuri Suvarov, to prevent the treaty negotiations.
Nearly all the attacks during Live Another Day were orchestrated directly or indirectly by Margot Al-Harazi, who wished to kill US President James Heller as revenge for his role in killing her husband and several of their friends. However, it subsequently transpired that the drone override module that Al-Harazi used for her attacks had been originally commissioned by Cheng Zhi, who was working independently of her and wished to start a war between the US and China.
Outcome: The plan was a trial run to demonstrate the technology worked. To fully test it, Yates attacked a military convoy in Afghanistan killing twoAmerican and twoBritish soldiers. Yates also escaped detection, leaving the drone's operator, Chris Tanner to take the blame for the attack.
Purpose: Lure the CIA's response team to a house falsely identified as being Al-Harazi's base, then destroy it with a hijacked drone.
Outcome: The house was destroyed, causing major casualties to the team. However, Chloe O'Brian identified that the situation was an ambush, and this information was relayed to the team fast enough for them to partially evacuate, preventing more fatalities.
Outcome: Although the hospital was destroyed, severely wounding a number of civilians, hospital patients, staff and policemen, and causing at least some fatalities, Jack Bauer and Kate Morgan managed to get Simone out of the hospital and into safety on time.
Purpose: Use a hijacked drone to kill President James Heller.
Outcome: Although Al-Harazi managed to shoot at Wembley Stadium, where she thought Heller was, Bauer had infiltrated the visual feed of her drone to lure her into thinking Heller was there when he was already safe.
Abu Fayed orchestrated several terrorist attacks during the 11 weeks prior to Day 6. The reported fatalities of these attacks totalled 900.
Fayed armed a second suitcase nuke, but Jack and CTU got to it in time and disarmed it. The nuke was likely armed in order to distract Jack rather than being an actual terrorist attack, as Fayed himself would almost certainly have been killed by the detonation had Jack failed to disarm it.
