I was discussing with a friend the parallels between mornings and afternoon in this season of 24. In other words, something that happens in the morning parallels something that happpens 12 hours later. For example; At 9.35am Mason leaves CTU to try and escape. At 9.35pm Mason leaves CTU for the last time. I'll need to check my tape, but I'm pretty sure the two scenes even use the same shot positioning. At 10.59am the bomb goes off at CTU, and this is followed immediately by Mason being informed he has one day to live. At 10.59pm the nuclear bomb goes off, and Mason dies. These cannot be coincidence - they match to the minute. So, I was wondering whether there are any other close similarities running in the story. Please feel free to post any ideas that you have. Finally, a request. Please use spoiler tags, but identify the relevant times outside of the spoiler tag. That way, readers (especially those like myself in countries that are running behind the USA) can know whether they have seen the relevant episodes and therefore know whether it is safe to read the spoiler.
