Synopsis:

Day 3: Season three starts three years after the events of the second season. A Mexican drug lord sits in jail, put there by Jack. His brother arranges to blackmail the U.S. Government with the threat he will release a bio-weapon that will kill millions if they don't release him. Palmer seeks re-election to a second term, with a dodgy chief of staff and a girlfriend who may not be telling him everything he needs to know. For Jack Bauer it’s a race against time to stop a bio-terror weapon that threatens to destroy the country. Will Jack survive this day? Or will it be his last...
