Day 2: 5:00 A.M.-6:00 A.M. - S2-E22

Plot hole: When Kim sees Gary she runs into the master bedroom, hides her bags, goes into the closet and up to the attic - all in the time it takes Gary to run five yards to the bedroom door. And considering how much noise the attic door made he should have heard her. Plus, how did she manage to get the door hatch closed when she had gone up?

Day 2: 6:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M. - S2-E11

Deliberate mistake: When Jack and that FBI team are looking for Sied Ali in the mosque, Jack finds a burning body in another room. He is led to believe that it is Ali, because the body's clothes matched the description that Kate Warner had given him. It is obvious that the skin is badly burnt, yet the clothes are barely scorched.

Day 2: 11:00 P.M.-12:00 Midnight - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Mike Novik is briefing President Palmer about his phone call with Jack Bauer. In one shot Mike gets so emotionally involved in his speech to Palmer, a tear roles down his face and his eyes are glazed. The camera switches to Palmer, and in the next shot of Mike, his face is dry and his eyes are not glazed anymore.

Day 2: 7:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When Kate Warner phones her sister, Marie holds her phone up to the camera and you can see that the words "KATE'S CELL" have been written using the 'Write Messages' function on her Nokia. The 'abc' in the corner gives it away plus you can see the cursor trying to be hidden by being moved next to the 'K' (00:20:05)

Day 2: 6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S2-E23

Plot hole: When Kim is brought back to the police station for the last time, the officer explains to her that they now know it was Gary Matheson who killed his wife, and that they are still looking for him. Why then, would Kim and her police escort not even consider the possibility that he might be hiding at his home when they arrive to get Kim's belongings? Even if the police searched the house once before, you would have to be insane to allow a teenage girl to enter the home of a known murderer on the loose. Beyond that, Kim herself never seemed to consider the threat.

Day 2: 6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Kate Warner ascends the stairs in Kim Bauer bosses house, she holds her sunglasses in her left hand. When the camera changes she has sunglasses on her right hand and her left hand is empty.

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Invoking the 25th amendment cannot be done by vote. The members have to send in their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall then immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Day 2: 11:00 A.M.-12:00 Noon - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the long shot showing Kate and Reza driving down the highway, in the background of the passenger side, we can see a very tall wooden partition. However, the close shots of Kate talking shows a lush green background - suddenly there is no partition. (00:30:00 - 00:31:00)

Day 2: 5:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M. - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Marie Warner goes to see Reza at her father's office at about 5:30. When she enters the office, she puts her handbag on the table and embraces Reza. After they embrace she picks her handbag up from the floor next to Reza's chair. There was no time or opportunity for anyone to move her bag.

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

Continuity mistake: During the showdown between Jack and Kingsley at the colloseum, the shadows made by the early morning sun change throughout the sequence. By the time the SWAT-team arrives, the sunlight comes from the other side entirely. (00:20:50 - 00:29:45)

Season 1 generally

Jack Bauer: I've killed two people since midnight. I haven't slept in over 24 hours. So maybe you should be a little more afraid of me than you are now.

Season 1 generally

Question: Was Nina recruited as a spy before she joined CTU or after? Also, as she wasn't working just for the Drazens, what was her primary mission?

Answer: According to Jack in season 5, Nina was "deep cover" before the pair ever met, so it's safe to assume she was recruited before she joined CTU. As for what her primary mission was, who knows? Perhaps it was to gather sensitive intel and pass it on to her superiors. Given that she worked for an intelligence agency, it's not a stretch. Or perhaps we may find out in season seven.
