After the explosion of a commuter train, Jack, who is now working for Secretary of Defense James Heller and also is romantically involved with Heller's married daughter, Audrey Raines, suddenly finds himself heading back to CTU for a meeting with Driscoll. Jack believes that the train explosion is a prelude for bigger things to come...

The eagerly anticipated Season 7 starts with Jack being forced to stand trial for human rights violations after returning from Africa, but he is soon drafted back into action when terrorists threaten America's national security by taking control of its communication systems. As Bauer sets out to uncover who is behind the menacing plot, he discovers an old friend he believed to be dead could be involved.
Amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations, President Allison Taylor, negotiates international security with Omar Hassan, a determined Middle Eastern leader visiting the U.S. As the new day begins, an upgraded CTU operates under the command of M.B.A.-schooled, razor-sharp head honcho Brian Hastings.
