This is the first season and episode to have the plotlines take place in New York City and Washington D.C. It was Los Angeles in the first few seasons, then it all took place in Washington D.C., and now, "New York Gets Jacked".
This is the first episode to feature the new CTU Director Brian Hastings.
FOX hosted a competition where fans could win a pre-screening of this episode, which took place on January 13th in New York City. The competition was basically that the first 300 people to send a message to a specific FOX e-mail address would get tickets to the pre-screening.

This is the first episode to feature the new upgraded CTU in New York City.
Jack: Sweetheart, we already talked about this, remember? You're supposed to call me grandpa.
Teri: You don't look like a grandpa.
Jack: Couldn't agree with you more!
Kim: How was the zoo?
Jack: To be honest with you, we spent most of our time just going back back and forth between the black bears and the polar bears.
Kim: I forgot to mention that she's going through a bear phase.
Jack: Well, she certainly knows what she wants. She reminds me of you.
Kim: That's funny, I always tell Stephen how much she reminds me of you.
Stephen: Sounds like they had fun.
Kim: They always do.
Stephen: What's wrong?
Kim: We talked to him about moving to LA the night we got here.
Stephen: Yeah, he said he'd think about it.
Kim: Yeah and he hasn't mentioned one word about it since and we leave tonight.
Stephen: Well, maybe he has to check with his doctors?
Kim: No, they cleared him two weeks ago. He's finished with treatment. I don't know. My father's been on his own for so long. Maybe he doesn't know how to live any other way.
Stephen: Why don't you just ask him again?
Kim: My father's not the type of person you ask twice.
Jack: Listen, I've been thinking a lot about what we talked about. And I've made up my mind. I want to move back to Los Angeles with you.
Jack: Victor... Victor, listen to me. You got to tell me everything you know about the hitter, so I can call it in, in case we don't make it.
Victor Aruz: If I don't make it, I don't care what happens. Get me to CTU.
Jack: You always were a son of a bitch.
This episode introduces the long-lost CTU. We heard CTU Los Angeles was dismantled in the beginning of season 7, and first now, CTU "returns" (although it is in New York City with brand new workers).
