4 corrected entries in Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M.

Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Corrected entry: Jack is not able to shoot Kingsley himself as he has no bullets left in the gun. But Kingsley doesn't know this so why on earth does he simply keep walking at a snails pace while Jack picks up what could be a loaded gun? Even when Jack aims it at him he doesn't think it might be a good idea to move. This is simple logic and goes way beyond a character mistake.

Correction: It isn't apparent to Kingsley that Jack is reaching for the gun as he doesn't even know it's there. He is a fair distance away and to him it just looks like weakened Jack is simply trying to crawl away. As soon as Jack raises the gun into view, it is a fraction of a second before he pulls the trigger. Kingsley DOES NOT have the amount of reaction time the wording of this mistake implies.

Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Corrected entry: Palmer's attorney tells Mike that he found a record of phone calls from Peter Kingsley to Jonathon Wallace, as recently as six hours ago. This means that the last call would have been made at about 1:04 am, just as Wallace was in a major shoot-out and had no way to talk on the phone.

Correction: He didn't mean exactly six hours ago, he meant approximately six hours ago - the phone call could have been made off-screen at some point around that time, but obviously not while Wallace was actually in the shootout.

Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Corrected entry: At the end of Season Two, we see President Palmer reacting to the poison in his hand. Why did the Secret Service let Palmer fall to the ground and instead started pulling their guns out while no shots were fired? Why didn't they shove him inside the limousine to take him to the nearest hospital, isn't it protocol to know every local hospital as part of route planning? Why wasn't there a full medical complement as part of the presidential entourage?

Correction: How should the Secret Service know that there haven't been shots? In the few seconds, when David Palmer is falling down, nobody (except the audience) knows whether he was shot or something else happened. After all, there is something called "silencer". In addition, the deleted scenes on DVD show that Palmer was supposed to get up shortly after he fell down and is able to step into his car, telling everyone to be allright; this wasn't shown in the aired version of the series, but it seems to be the reason that nobody provided medical supply.

Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Corrected entry: How does the assassin at the end of the second series, know where David Palmer will be? The mystery man who orders the attack seems to suggest that it is a pre-planned move, but Palmer only flew to Los Angeles after the bomb went off - and did not make any press statements after that, before he was impounded so the public would be unaware that Palmer was in LA. Furthermore, since the man in charge knew a bomb was going to go off, why would he leave the agent for his back-up plan, inside Los Angeles?

Correction: If 24 has shown us anything, it's that no-one is to be trusted. It's possible that the assassin and their employer were informed by another insider within the President's staff. If nothing else, the President's movements can't have been that secret, otherwise where did all those well-wishers come from?
