POTUS wannabe John Donovan (Jimmy Smits) is trying desperately to align various plots in order to save his kidnapped wife, Rebecca (Miranda Otto), but in tonight’s 24: Legacy season finale, Rebecca’s partner in crime warns him that her survival might not be in her — or her husband’s — best interest.
Director of National Intelligence Donald Simms (James Moses Black) had previously told John that Rebecca was his co-conspirator in the kidnapping of terrorist Asim Naseri’s young daughter, a dangerous plot carried out in an attempt to blackmail Naseri.
Donovan had already witnessed what his wife — the former CTU director — was capable of when she had his elderly father, Henry (Gerald McRaney), tortured for information. Despite that, and the fact that he seems to also believe Simms is telling the truth about Naseri’s daughter, Donovan persists in trying to force Simms to help him save Rebecca.
“Once this gets out, she’ll wish she was dead,” Simms tells Donovan. “Once everyone knows, once Rebecca goes on trial at The Hague or wherever they end up prosecuting this, every good thing she’s ever done gets undone. And you know what you’re left with? Rebecca Ingram, war criminal.”
The 24: Legacy Season 1 finale airs April 17 at 8 p.m. on Fox. Watch clips and full episodes of 24: Legacy on Yahoo View.
