24: Day 4 Prequel

Jack gets into his SUV. The weight of the Day 3 overcomes him,
and he starts to cry.

Three Months Later

Jack enters the office of Erin Driscoll, the new Director of CTU.
Driscoll informs Jack that she is removing him as a head of the
Field Ops because of his off-book behavior and former heroin
addiction. She does not tolerate any weaknesses. Driscoll offers
to help him to get a position, but Jack refuses. "I can find my
own fucking job," he replies as he leaves her office.

One Year Later

Tomas Sherak and two men approach the U.S. Mexico border. Sherak
hands them a briefcase full of money, and they help him to pass
over the barb-wired wall. A man on the other side helps Sherak
to get to a car. Sherak kills him, and then he uses a remote
detonator to set off a bomb he hid within the briefcase, blowing
up the other men. Sherak uses a phone to inform someone that he
made it into U.S.

Six Hours Before Day 4 Begins

Audrey Raines enters her hotel room at one in the morning. She
spots a bunch of flowers on the table and looks for the intruder.
Jack hugs her from behind, and they slowly lie down on the bed,

He lost his job but found a woman who loves him. It took a long
time for Jack Bauer to feel good again... Then Day 4 began.

24: Day 4

7:00 A.M.
A man named Brody sits in a passenger train as it moves through
a remote part of the Santa Clarita Valley. A titanium briefcase
is handcuffed to his wrist. He has two guards to protect him.
Suddenly, the train brakes as it smashes into an old truck filled
with metal drums that ignite on the train's impact. A helmeted
driver on a dirt bike approaches the train wreckage and heads
straight for Brody, who is writhing on the ground. The driver,
named Dar, shoots Brody. With bolt cutters, Dar pries the
briefcase from Brody's wrist and speeds away.

7:03 A.M.
At CTU in Los Angeles, Chloe O'Brian and Sarah Gavin look up
someone from the FBI watch list that was spotted in the city.
Tomas Sherak, a known Turkish terrorist, might be linked to
a credible threat in the U.S., and the attack was scheduled for
8:00 am.

7:04 A.M.
CTU head Erin Driscoll gets word about the train bomb. Chloe lets
her know that it may be connected to Sherak's spotting and the
potential threat. Chloe also questions Driscoll about an upcoming
Defense Department meeting with Jack Bauer. Jack hasn't been to
CTU since Driscoll fired him.

7:05 A.M.
Jack dresses in a hotel room. He is with Audrey Heller Raines,
who also dresses. Audrey asks if he will be uncomfortable
returning to CTU, but Jack says it was his own decision to retire
from the field. He kisses her. Audrey asks Jack not to tell her
father that they are a couple. Both Audrey and Jack work for her
father, Defense Secretary Heller.

7:09 A.M.
Agent Curtis Manning briefs Driscoll, Chloe, Sarah and another
techie named Edgar Stiles on the Sherak information. The
assumption is that Sherak will try to leave Los Angeles after the
train explosion. Chloe wonders if the bombing at 7 am does not
correlate with the timing of Sherak's supposed terrorist attack
at 8 am. Driscoll orders her to stay on course with Sherak's
flight out of LA.

7:10 A.M.
Tomas Sherak phones a man named Navi Araz at his home. Sherak
brings news that Dar acquired the briefcase. After hanging up,
Navi tells his wife Dina that he suspects their teenage son
Behrooz may be dating an American girl whom they forbid him from
seeing. Navi yells at Behrooz, who is angry that his father has
read his emails. They all hear a television report of the train
accident. Navi instructs Behrooz that he will take the briefcase
from Sherak to a warehouse. "What we accomplish today will change
the world," Navi says. "We are fortunate that our family has been
chosen to do this."

7:14 A.M.
Ticking clock.

7:20 A.M.
A programmer named Melanie, enters the office of a graphic design
startup and sees her co-worker, Andrew Paige, has been working
through the night. As Andrew is stealing some software, he
notices that there are nodes put in place that will corrupt the
entire Internet. Andrew agrees to call the Feds to warn them --
but only from a payphone so he doesn't get caught stealing code.

7:22 A.M.
Jack and Audrey come down to the hotel entrance and meet
Secretary of Defense James Heller. Heller apprises Jack of the
train bomb and asks him to find out more when he visits CTU.

7:23 A.M.
Andrew Paige calls his friend Chloe to warn her about what he
found on the web. Some of the damaging code is in an Arabic

7:24 A.M.
Sarah digs up someone in Los Angeles with a dry cleaning business
that is owned by a Turkish holding company. Chloe lets Driscoll
know about Andrew's discovery. The server feeding the worm is
based in Turkey, where Sherak is from. Driscoll tells her to pass
that on to FBI so that she can focus on the bomb. Chloe is
annoyed that her conclusions are dismissed so easily.

7:25 A.M.
Jack enters CTU and notices the changes to the office. He greets
Chloe, informing her that Kim and Chase are living together after
he left CTU. Manning introduces Jack to Ronnie Lobell, the new
head of field ops and Jack's replacement. As Jack waits for
Driscoll, he sees the sense of urgency in the air.

7:27 A.M.
Audrey rides with her father to her brother's house. Heller wants
to convince his son Richard not to take part in a protest that
might embarrass the President.

7:28 A.M.
President John Keeler phones Heller to say he is considering
raising the threat level based on the train bombing.

7:29 A.M.
Jack meets with Driscoll about the Department of Defense's budget
for CTU. He questions some of her proposals to increase monies,
much to her chagrin. Driscoll excuses herself to watch feed from
the field op agents who have visited the dry cleaning business
owned by a Turkish company.

7:30 A.M.
Jack watches the feed along with Driscoll. As Ronnie fruitlessly
questions the man at the counter, Jack insists to Driscoll that
the man is hiding something. Driscoll shakes off his claim. Jack
points out that the man keeps looking suspiciously to his right.
Driscoll radios Ronnie to warn him. The agents raid and grab the
fleeing Sherak. Jack shakes his head. If it weren't for his help,
they wouldn't have nabbed him.

7:33 A.M.
Ticking clock.

7:39 A.M.
With his Secret Service detail in tow, Heller arrives at
Richard's house. He enters alone.

7:40 A.M.
Meanwhile, Jack calls Audrey to warn her that CTU has captured
their suspect in the train bombing. Jack also tells Audrey that
he is falling in love with her. She is pleased. Jack cuts off
when Driscoll returns to the office. He tries to get information
from her on the suspect, but she won't reveal anything.

7:42 A.M.
Despite his father's plea, Richard insists on participating in
the protest rally. They argue.

7:44 A.M.
Andrew returns to the office after calling Chloe from the
payphone. He sees a man beating up Melanie and asking what she
found on the Internet. Melanie names Andrew as the one who found
something but that she doesn't know what it is. Andrew runs out
and trips over a murdered co-worker. He jumps on his bike and
speeds away before the hitmen spot him.

7:47 A.M.
Driscoll gives Jack an open socket to look up the budget numbers.
He sees Sherak being brought in by Ronnie. Jack tells Driscoll
that he knows Sherak under the name Jann Bolek, who was traced to
bombings in Europe in the nineties. Jack insists that something
doesn't seem right. This guy wouldn't have risked coming into the
country for a simple train bomb. Driscoll dismisses his advice

7:49 A.M.
Jack turns to Chloe and asks whether there was any indication
that there might be more than one attack. Chloe says that there
was a time discrepancy, but that Driscoll thought the time was
close enough. He pushes Chloe aside and logs onto her computer to
Interpol. Jack looks at the intel and knows that Sherak didn't
just come here for the train. Something will happen at 8 am.

7:50 A.M.
Ticking clock.

7:54 A.M.
Audrey phones her estranged husband Paul in a desire to proceed
with the divorce. She is interrupted with a call from Jack who
urgently needs to speak to Heller. He needs clearance to work on
a possible second terrorist strike. Audrey goes into Richard's
house to get her father.

7:55 A.M.
Audrey comes in and hands the phone to Heller. She tells her
brother that he is only trying to hurt their father.

7:56 A.M.
Heller tells Jack that he is hesitant to step on Driscoll's toes
and to let CTU handle it. Before Jack can press further, Heller
hangs up in order to take a call from the President.

7:57 A.M.
Jack sneaks into the interrogation room where Ronnie is
ineffectively grilling Sherak. He takes down a guard in the
process. When Ronnie steps out, Jack goes in with his gun raised.
Driscoll yells at him over the intercom, but Jack proceeds to
shoot Sherak in the leg, demanding to know what's going to happen
at 8:00. "What is your primary objective?" Jack screams. Sherak
says it is the Secretary of Defense. Jack demands that Driscoll
notify Secret Service immediately.

7:58 A.M.
Jack calls Audrey's cell as she stands outside her brother's
house with her father. He warns her that Heller is the real
target. Suddenly, a rocket grenade sails past her face and hits
a Secret Service vehicle, which bursts into a ball of flames.
Jack hears the gunfire over the cell phone, as a van pulls up and
gunmen fire at the Secret Service agents. Richard watches through
his window in fear as masked men abduct Audrey and Heller into
a van. Audrey screams for Jack, who can only listen helplessly.

7:59 A.M.
Dar arrives at the Araz house and hands the briefcase to Navi.
They embrace.

Ticking clock.

They find him curled up in a corner, crying. "They took my father
and my sister," he tells them.

8:01 A.M.
Heller and Audrey are transferred to another van. They are bound
and blindfolded.

8:02 A.M.
Driscoll informs her staff of Heller's abduction. Chloe proceeds

Jack tries to work the phones to get Secret Service involved,
Driscoll has him arrested for torturing a suspect.

8:05 A.M.
President Keeler phones Driscoll to inquire about Heller. He
plans to elevate the terror threat level.

8:06 A.M.
As he flees on his bike, Andrew calls his mother and warns her to
get out of the house. He tells her about the killings in his
office. She doesn't see an armed man named Kalil watching her
from the window.

8:07 A.M.
Chloe goes to see the detained Jack with information that might
help Heller because she doesn't trust Driscoll. Chloe's friend
found damaging code on the web that originated in Turkey.

8:08 A.M.
At Union Station, Andrew sees a news report on Heller's
kidnapping. Chloe calls his cell phone and he tells her about the
murders in his office. Jack cuts in to let Andrew know he might
be targeted by the same people who took Heller. He promises
Andrew that he will come get him at the station. Meanwhile, from
the Paige house, Kalil has tapped into Andrew's cell phone and
has listened to the entire conversation. He takes a photo of
Andrew from the mantle and steps over the dead body of Andrew's

The briefcase from the train explosion contains a device. Dina
offers to deliver it instead of Behrooz. Navi insists that they
stay on course, and that a teenager won't arouse suspicion. Dina

8:12 A.M.
Jack chides Driscoll for abandoning an active CTU investigation
of Andrew Paige's claims during a terrorist threat. Andrew's
co-workers are all dead, so it must be connected. Jack is the
only one who knows where Andrew is and he asks to be reinstated.
He threatens to tell the President that Driscoll couldn't break
Sherak without him. Driscoll allows Jack to work as an auxiliary
agent under the authority of field ops director Ronnie Lobell.
After that, Jack will be turned over to Division.

8:14 A.M.
Ticking clock.

8:19 A.M.

Meanwhile, Ronnie Lobell is furious that Jack was released. He
reluctantly accepts Driscoll's order to keep tabs on him.

8:23 A.M.
Behrooz prepares to leave with the briefcase and Dina warns him
to be careful. Before he can depart, the phone rings. A girl

seeing someone else. Behrooz cuts her off without explanation. He
tells his mother that he will deal with Debbie later.

8:25 A.M.
Driscoll summons Chloe and asks why she turned to Jack. Driscoll
questions why she didn't pick up the internet lead after they
captured Sherak. Chloe admits that she does feel that she does
have more trust in Jack.

8:27 A.M.
As they prepare to depart CTU, Ronnie tells Jack that he doesn't
agree with Driscoll's decision to release him. "If you try to
exceed my authority again, I will stop you cold," Ronnie warns.

Ticking clock.

8:31 A.M.
From Ronnie's car, Jack phones his office at the Defense
Department. Ronnie smugly asks about work in D.C., and Jack says
that he needed to get out of the field in order to have a life

8:33 A.M.
Audrey and Heller wait in a caged cell. He mentions that if Jack
tried to warn her about this before they were abducted then their
chance for survival is good because there must be some kind of
source. Heller tries to make Audrey feel better. Just then, the
henchmen come in and demand Heller to undress. He refuses. They
forcibly remove his clothes.

8:35 A.M.
Behrooz arrives at the compound. He hands the briefcase over.
When he returns to his car, he sees that he has been followed by
Debbie. He tells her that she shouldn't be there, and explains
that his parents have a problem with them seeing each other
because she is not Muslim. Behrooz promises to get together with
her later, and kisses her goodbye. Omar's henchman sees all this.

8:38 A.M.
Ticking clock.

8:42 A.M.
Curtis submits Richard Heller to a lie detector while he is
questioned. Richard is angry that he's being treated like
a criminal when they should be finding his father and sister.
From a remote screen, Sarah tells Driscoll that Richard is
telling the truth so far.

8:45 A.M.
Behrooz returns home. Navi slaps him because it was reported that
he was seen with a girl at the compound. Despite Behrooz's claims
that Debbie didn't see anything, Navi is angry that their scheme
might be compromised. They have lived in America for almost five
years planning this. Navi orders his son to call Debbie to the

Jack and Ronnie are met at Union Station by MTA police.

8:47 A.M.
Chloe calls Andrew to say that the agents are on-site. Andrew
hangs up and is met by Kalil, who claims to be Jack Bauer. Kalil
takes him away. Jack and Ronnie go to the meeting point, but
Andrew is gone. Jack calls Andrew's cell phone, and Andrew is
alarmed to hear Jack's voice. Kalil grabs the phone and puts a

Andrew first, and he alerts the authorities to look for him at
the station.

8:49 A.M.
Ticking clock.

8:53 A.M.
One of the MTA officers sees Kalil taking Andrew out of the
station to car. Kalil tapes Andrew's mouth shut and drives off.

8:54 A.M.
Kalil is stopped by construction as he tries to leave the lot.
Jack and Ronnie rush out and spot the car. Ronnie is ready to
raid, but Jack would rather follow the car because it might lead
them to Heller. As Kalil is about to escape, Ronnie pulls rank as
the field ops head and calls Driscoll to back himself up. Before
Ronnie can place the call, Jack throws a punch at him. Ronnie
knocks Jack down and handcuffs him to a railing. Ronnie radios
the cops to pull over the car.

8:56 A.M.
Ronnie approaches the car, and Kalil shoots him. Jack is
helplessly chained to the rail as Kalil escapes. He calls out for
Ronnie to toss him the keys. Ronnie weakly hands them over and
Jack frees himself. Ronnie dies. Jack grabs his gun and takes off
in Ronnie's car, looking for Kalil.

8:59 A.M.
Everyone at CTU watches a webcast signal that is being pushed out
over the internet. The terrorists have broadcast a streaming
video of a bound Heller in front of masked and armed men. Arabic
letters are on the banner above. One of the men is Omar, who

Curtis still does not know whether Richard Heller has information
about the abduction. Driscoll is alarmed when Chloe says that
both Jack and Ronnie are not answering their phones.

9:04 A.M.
Jack calls Driscoll with news of Ronnie's death. He wants to
follow the suspect in hopes it will lead to Heller. Driscoll
demands that he apprehend the suspect now. The phone breaks and
Jack hangs up, still in pursuit. Edgar tells Driscoll that
Jack's call is not traceable. Driscoll informs the staff that
Jack is no longer officially on the investigation.

9:05 A.M.
Chloe calls the MTA, but they have no news of Andrew.

9:07 A.M.
Kalil calls Omar from the car to let him know that had to kill an
agent at the train station. Omar warns him to lose anyone who
might be following, so Kalil quickly exits the freeway. Jack
hangs an illegal u-turn, putting him in the wrong direction out
the freeway entrance. He spots Kalil's car on a side road and is
able to continue following him from a safe distance.

9:08 A.M.
Heller tells Audrey about them broadcasting that he will be put
on trial. He is frustrated that his daughter has to be subjected
to this horror. Omar demands that Heller sign a list of offenses
that he is charged with. Heller refuses. They threaten to kill
Audrey, and Heller relents.

9:10 A.M.
Ticking clock.

9:15 A.M.
Driscoll is annoyed that her team has found nothing on Jack's
location or the origin of the webcast. The President calls
Driscoll, and she is forced to tell him that Jack is trailing
a potential suspect. Driscoll asks if he would authorize an
assault on the terrorists even if that means the Secretary will
not survive. The President says he will cross that bridge if the
scenario presents itself.

9:17 A.M.
A techie named Marianne Taylor phones Curtis to ask why she
wasn't considered as a consultant for CTU's investigation even
though she has the qualifications. Marianne accuses Curtis of
being uncomfortable because they once had an affair. She
threatens to call Driscoll.

9:18 A.M.
Jack calls Chloe with a request to steal satellite surveillance
from CTU so that he can track the suspect's car. Although
Driscoll warned her that Jack is operating outside CTU, Chloe
agrees to help. Edgar hears the end of the call and tells Sarah
that Chloe is acting strangely.

9:19 A.M.
Driscoll informs Curtis that Marianne claimed he gave her
classified information on CTU systems. Curtis dubs Marianne
a liar. To avoid getting into a conflict, Driscoll will bring
Marianne in as a consultant. Curtis' polygraph shows that Richard
Heller might be hiding the fact that he told someone about his
father's visit. Driscoll wants him to use force to get it out of

Richard's arms are strapped down. The man who tortured Nina Myers
comes in with a briefcase full of syringes. Curtis demands that
Richard admit who knew about Heller's visit. Richard screams, and
Curtis stops the needle before it's injected. He goes out to the
observation room where Driscoll has been watching. She is angry
that he did not obey her orders. Curtis suggests a non-invasive
technique instead, and Driscoll reluctantly agrees to it.

9:30 A.M.
Dina calls her husband as he is entering a restaurant. They are
concerned because Debbie has seen the warehouse where Heller is
being held. Dina assures Navi that she will take care of it. She
hangs up and tells Behrooz that he doesn't have to bring Debbie
to the house. Behrooz is pleased, and he hugs his mother.

9:31 A.M.
Kalil tells Andrew that "today is about something bigger." He
pulls the car under an overpass where other men are waiting for

9:32 A.M.
Jack pulls over too, and he gives Chloe the location of where he
is. He asks her to get back to him once she has the satellite
coverage. Jack grabs rifles from the back and runs over to get
a better view of where Kalil's men are beating up Andrew.

9:34 A.M.
Chloe sees Andrew from a Caltrans traffic cam on the freeway. She
begs Jack to stop the beating, but he doesn't want to risk losing
the trail on Heller. Meanwhile, Andrew tells Kalil that he only
found that someone was preparing to distribute some kind of
positioning code on the internet. Yet the text was in Arabic, so
he couldn't uncover anything else. Kalil relays this to Omar, who
orders him back to the compound. Their men will get rid of the

empty workstation. He's clearly annoyed with the situation.
Curtis walks to Chloe's desk and assigns her another task.

9:47 A.M.

smoother. She lets Jack know she has it up.

9:48 A.M.
Ticking clock.

9:53 A.M.

Jack is following one of the terrorists on his own even though
Driscoll wants the suspect brought in. Edgar says his task is to
find Jack.

9:54 A.M.
Curtis comes into the interrogation room where Richard has been
subjected to sensory disorientation. Richard still won't divulge

she has no movement on the satellite.

Behrooz is worried about his mother's motives.

9:58 A.M.
When Chloe still can't get satellite coverage, Jack comes up with
an alternate plan to keep the guy in place. He takes out

Driscoll fights to stay calm in the midst of crisis. She learns
that Andrew Paige was taken to the hospital and that two
Middle-Eastern men were found at the site with gunshot wounds to

suspect. Curtis tries to convince her to focus on Heller instead,
but she wants all tactical teams to locate Jack.

doesn't have the satellite up. Curtis summons her to a Driscoll
briefing, and she is forced to log off the system.

10:06 A.M.

briefing. Driscoll informs her staff about Andrew's safety and
Jack's intervention. As she speaks, Driscoll checks to see
Chloe's reactions.

10:07 A.M.
After the meeting, Driscoll has Sarah bug Chloe's system. She is
sure that Chloe knew about Andrew, which means she's been in
touch with Jack.

Meanwhile, Jack has the clerk open the store safe. He inquires
about its armored truck scheduled delivery, which isn't for
another two hours. Kalil whispers to another customer that he
must do something to stop the thief.

Ticking clock.

10:14 A.M.
Sarah tells Driscoll that she hasn't seen any communication
between Chloe and Jack. Chloe speaks to Edgar privately, asking
him for help because she can tell that Sarah has tapped into her

the satellite instead. Edgar only relents because Chloe has been
helpful to him in the past. Neither of them notices that Marianne
has heard the entire conversation.

10:17 A.M.
Heller becomes enraged despite Audrey trying to calm him down.
Suddenly, Heller keels over and moans in pain. Audrey summons the
guard for help because her father is having a heart attack. The
guard radios for help and unlocks the door. Heller jumps him from
behind. Audrey is surprised, but manages to grab a hammer and
slam the guard in the stomach. She grabs his gun. They run out of
the cell, and Heller shoots two more guards. They are captured by
Omar, who threatens to kill Audrey if another one of his men

the policeman responds, the store clerk yells for help. The
operator radios that she will send help.

10:30 A.M.

Based on Kalil's timeline, Sarah tracks suspicious activity in
any of the potential destinations. Jack watches as Kalil gets
stopped by three men who make racial comments to him in reference
to the capture of Heller. Suddenly, a police car pulls up. Jack
panics that the APB on the stolen car will detain Kalil. The cop

over until he kills him. Behrooz drives off in Tariq's car.

12:57 P.M.
Jack and the CTU agents speak to someone from the defense
contractor. What was in the briefcase was a device to override
a nuclear power plant in the case of a disaster. This device
could also do the opposite -- create a meltdown. However, there
are safeguards on the reactors' firewalls that would have to be
hacked through to cause a meltdown. With the overwhelming amount
of net traffic during Heller's broadcasted trial, this could have
hidden the assault on any reactor's computer system. Jack alerts
Heller of this threat.

12:59 P.M.
Marianne, who has secretly listened in on the conversation about
the nuclear power plant threat, goes to an area away from the

in firing. Jack and Audrey get to the ground in time and Jack
shoots the two men. As the tech lies wounded, he tells Jack that
the main source for the footage is on Felsted's servers. Jack
copies this to flash memory sticks. As they see more men coming
toward them, Audrey suggests they call CTU. Jack knows that CTU
must have been compromised because no one else knew where they
were. He grabs the sticks, and he and Audrey make their way
through the building. Jack grabs a gun from one of the bodies and
gives it to Audrey for backup. Jack calls someone on his cell
phone, and Audrey asks who it is. "The only person I can trust
right now," Jack answers.

4:36 P.M.
Jack orders a full forensic search of the building. He asks Tony
to take Dina and Behrooz back to CTU, but Tony isn't sure he

because he is under the impression there is a chance to get back
together. She hangs up on Heller.

4:46 P.M.

a badge and welcomes him back. She agrees to let Tony head up the
interrogation. Driscoll walks away from Tony and asks Sarah to
keep an eye on him in case he goes off protocol along with Jack.
Sarah accuses Driscoll of only being nice to her to keep her as
an ally. She believes Driscoll feels forced out of power by Jack
and Tony. Sarah demands a promotion and her arrest expunged in
return for her help. Driscoll agrees.

4:48 P.M.

Marwan. Dina says he is an engineer but that she doesn't know who
he is.

5:19 P.M.
Sarah rings Curtis again. At the office building, Ali sees
Curtis' cell phone ring but doesn't answer it. One of the
henchmen finds his gunmen dead, and he calls Ali. They know that
Curtis is still on the floor because the doors are armed. Ali
notifies Marwan, who instructs him to disconnect all hard lines
so that Curtis cannot call CTU. Curtis watches as Ali pulls the
phone lines from the wall.

members who have a connection to Marwan. Driscoll gives him
permission to go further with the interrogation.

5:29 P.M.
Dina doesn't budge when Tony has all audio and video disconnected
from the interrogation room. He physically pushes Dina into the
outer room to witness him order all the techies out. Tony
threatens to put Behrooz in jail because the President's pardon
is non-binding. He convinces her that prison is so awful that
Behrooz will want to commit suicide there. Dina relents, and says
that Marwan is the man her cell reported to in the United States.
She has no idea about other cells. Dina says that Marwan has the
Override device and is at the Rockland Building.

5:33 P.M.
Tony tells Driscoll what Dina confirmed. He calls Jack with this
information and says they have about twenty minutes until the
next meltdown.

Marwan comes down to the floor where Ali is because he is worried
about Curtis's disappearance.

Jack and a team of agents ride the elevator up and meet Curtis.
Jack doesn't want backup to tip them off. Curtis informs them
that a company called IDS is on the floor where Marwan is. Jack
surmises that the cell infiltrated a sleeper inside the company

quickly calls Marwan and tells him that they've been discovered.
The agents run after Ali and fire. Marwan hears the gunshots over
the phone. Marwan grabs his gun, and looks around suspiciously.
Jack notices this, and he approaches Marwan's desk. Marwan sees
him and fires his gun in the air. The office workers scream and
flee. Marwan runs out and Curtis grabs the Override device. Jack
takes off after Marwan.

5:56 P.M.
Curtis calls Edgar, who tries to give him commands to alter the
device. Edgar does what he can on his end. A staff member
interrupts Driscoll with an urgent message from the clinic, but
she tells them to wait. The reactors finally respond and begin to
retreat on meltdowns. Heller and the CTU staff cheer for Edgar.

McLennan-Forster -- the company who built the Override device.

6:02 P.M.
Jack decides that he will go check out the McLennan-Forster
headquarters, and he instructs Curtis to take Audrey and Paul
back to CTU. Paul offers to go with Jack because his company sold
the IT system to McLennan-Forster. He knows programming backdoors
into the military files. Jack takes Paul, and sends Audrey with

The President calls and congratulates Heller and Driscoll. They
are not sure whether Marwan has other plans besides the nuclear
plant meltdowns.

6:08 P.M.
Marwan sheds the CTU gear and escapes onto a city bus.

In the staff briefing, Edgar pulls up the McLennan-Forster
employment file for Marwan. They theorize that Marwan entered
America with the intent of performing a radical act against the
country. He may have even used the company to recruit sleeper
cells. Driscoll is distracted and walks out of the meeting. Edgar
argues with Tony and Sarah about cutting Driscoll some slack.
Sarah wants to report this to Heller, but Tony disagrees.

6:10 P.M.

another attack with his various cells. Suddenly, Driscoll faints.
A medic takes her to get some food. When she leaves, Heller tells
Tony that Driscoll will need to be relieved of her duty. Tony
offers to fill in because he knows the job. Heller grants him the
position of Interim Director of CTU Los Angeles, but he still
wants District to send a permanent replacement.

6:19 P.M.
Sarah and Curtis learn that Marwan had full security access at
McLennan-Forster. The company also trains clients to use the
weapons they manufacture. Curtis thinks McLennan-Forster will be
reluctant to give out information because this leak will make
them look bad.

6:20 P.M.
McLennan-Forster CEO Gene McLennan is briefed by another
executive, John Reiss, on the terrorist acts Marwan did under his
employment there. McLennan is shocked. The only other person
inside the company who knows about this is the head of security,
Dave Conlon.

Conlon greets Jack and Paul as they arrive at the company
headquarters. Jack demands to meet with McLennan, but Conlon
resists. Jack becomes suspicious.

6:22 P.M.
Reiss convinces McLennan that their company will be brought down
if CTU finds out the facts about Marwan. McLennan is hesitant to
go along with the plan to suppress information, but Reiss says
that they might all face prison if the truth comes out. He
promises that he and Conlon will take care of it.

CTU. Curtis felt he should have been given the job.

6:32 P.M.
Reiss leads Jack and Paul to Marwan's office, as Conlon and
McLennan watch them from a surveillance monitor. Paul notices
that a lot of files were purged from the computer, and Jack
suspects someone deleted them before they got there. Conlon can
view Marwan's computer screen from his office and he clears the
incriminating documents before Paul is able to find them on the
system. McLennan is nervous. Conlon says that he may be forced to
set off an EMP to bomb their own system, even if it cripples the
company electronically.

investigation. He tells Edgar that Driscoll suggested he be
relied upon.

6:41 P.M.
Curtis asks Edgar to switch his focus to finding Marwan on
satellite rather than searching for information at
McLennan-Forster. Tony intercedes, ordering Edgar to stay on his
initial task. Curtis defends his position, but Tony pulls rank.
He assures Curtis that he only wants to catch Marwan and that he
will be leaving by the end of the day.

6:43 P.M.
Marwan waits in a dark alley as a car pulls up. A man named Yosik
tells him that their people at the air force base are on

6:44 P.M.
Paul uses backdoors built by the software designers to rebuild
the deleted files from the empty directories. Conlon is stumped
by this. McLennan frets that they will discover evidence proving
that his company sold arms to terrorists. They are left with no
choice but to use the pulse bomb. Reiss believes that CTU will
suspect that Marwan was behind it. He calls a technician and
orders the EMP activated. It will take ten minutes to charge up.

6:46 P.M.
Ticking clock.

6:51 P.M.
Sarah notices that their phone taps at McLennan-Forster are not
working because of an increase in amplitude. Edgar tries to call
Jack's cell, but the recording says he is out of range. All of
the cell and land lines around the company are out, but the
computers have not been affected yet.

6:52 P.M.
Tony types a message to Jack over the system, but when Jack tries
to call CTU he finds that his phones are all down. Paul opens
a socket for Jack to respond to the message, and Tony tells him
that frequencies are out all over the area. Paul recovers an
encrypted file and he prints it out.

6:53 P.M.
Conlon sees that Paul found something incriminating, but he
can't make out what it is. He runs to Marwan's office.

6:54 P.M.
Jack discovers that McLennan-Forster was developing an EMP as
a non-lethal weapon for the military. It has just been set off,
and anything with electrical components in the area will be
fried. Jack sends word to Tony, who orders helicopters in the
area to be landed because their electrical systems will be wiped

6:55 P.M.
Tony tells Jack that the EMP originated inside McLennan-Forster
in room 12. Jack runs out to find it, ordering Paul to meet him
outside with the hard copy once it finishes printing. Conlon
radios his guards to stop Jack. Conlon arrives in the office and
tells Paul that he noticed he was printing something because they
were searching the system as well. Paul sends him to the printer,
which is empty. Paul runs with the printouts, and Conlon pulls
out his gun and chases after him.

6:56 P.M.
Paul hides in a dark office, and Conlon doesn't see him. Jack
comes upon the room where the EMP is and knocks out the three
guards keeping watch. Jack takes one of their passcards and
enters the EMP room. He sees that someone has opened the safety
chamber housing the EMP bomb. Jack types in some commands and a
heavy metal door starts to move slowly towards the chamber. It
will not close in time. Jack covers behind the shielding door,
screaming, as the EMP bomb goes off.

6:57 P.M.
Paul hides out by a window, where only the moonlight from outside
illuminates him. He notices the lights from the city skyline
begin to black out.

6:58 P.M.
Jack grabs a flashlight from one of the guards and tries to find
his way out of the building. Meanwhile, Paul makes it to the
front entrance but is stopped by an armed Conlon who demands the

6:59 P.M.
Edgar gets word that one of CTU's choppers just crashed. Tony
goes to Heller with an update on the EMP bomb. They are
interrupted by a call notifying them that Driscoll's replacement
from District just arrived. Tony is shocked to see Michelle
Dessler walk into CTU. Heller asks if Tony knows her. "I used to
be married to her," Tony says.

Ticking clock.

7:00 P.M.
Curtis tells Audrey that the EMP cut off all connection to Jack
and Paul. Although an EMP bomb only affects electrical systems,
no one knows if they are safe.

7:03 P.M.
Conlon's guards beat up Paul, who refuses to divulge any
information. After Conlon leaves, Jack kills the guards. They
find the printouts that Paul hid in another office. Jack takes
it and helps Paul escape.

7:06 P.M.
Heller introduces Michelle to the CTU staff as the new director.
Tony briefs her on what they have found so far about Marwan and
McLennan-Forster. Michelle says that the only priority is to find
whatever information Jack uncovered.

7:07 P.M.
Michelle assigns Tony to run a cross check of names, and Tony
cannot hide his anger that his abilities are not being put to
better use. She blames it on his being an alcoholic the last time
she saw him. She says he can resign if he doesn't want to follow
her orders. He doesn't, and Michelle bestows him with a low-level
security clearance.

7:08 P.M.
Audrey notices this exchange and she warns Michelle that
Secretary Heller doesn't like personal problems affecting the
job. Michelle becomes defensive.

7:09 P.M.
Curtis and Edgar watch a news report of looting and gunfire in
the area near McLennan-Forster. They suspect that the company
must have set off the EMP because they were incriminated in
whatever Jack uncovered.

7:10 P.M.
Marwan enters his restaurant hideout and calls a man named Mitch
Anderson. Anderson assures Marwan that he is ready and that it
will take him less than thirty minutes to get where he is going.
Marwan confirms that he will inform the others. Anderson pulls
out an Air Force uniform from his closet.

7:11 P.M.
Ticking clock.

7:15 P.M.
On her monitor, Sarah spots a helicopter heading to
McLennan-Forster that won't respond to any of CTU's requests. It
is not a police or rescue chopper. Tony knows that this means it
is a search and destroy mission composed of at least 20 armed
men. He suspects that McLennan-Forster sent it to go after Jack
and Paul. The company has been training mercenaries for years.
Michelle throws a look at Tony for interceding in her authority.

7:16 P.M.
Outside the building, Jack and Paul try to avoid the beam of the
chopper as it lands. Conlon comes out with photos of Jack and
Paul. He instructs the mercenaries to have the men "erased" even
though one of the targets is a federal agent. Conlon says that
Jack went bad and started helping the terrorists. They spot two
bodies on infrared, and they go after them.

7:17 P.M.
Jack carries Paul through the darkened streets to a sporting
goods store in search of weapons. As they approach, a gunshot
fires through the front door and a voice warns them to stay back.
Jack identifies himself as an agent. Two Arab American brothers
are huddled inside. They have just had their store looted.

7:19 P.M.
Jack takes their supply of rifles and explains that he's trying
to fight back against the people who set off the EMP bomb. These
people were also responsible for the terrorist attacks. Jack
urges the brothers to flee. Jack plans to engage the
McLennan-Forster army with firepower to force them to use their
radios. This will signal CTU. The brothers decide that they want
to stay in their store to help Jack because they have been
fighting the stereotype of terrorists their whole lives.

7:22 P.M.
Ticking clock.

7:26 P.M.
Audrey admits to her father that she was shocked to see Jack
torture Paul because he seemed like a different person than the
man she fell in love with. She says she's not sure if she still
feels the same way about him anymore.

7:28 P.M.
Sarah lets Michelle know that Driscoll had promised her a raise
after being falsely accused. When Michelle dismisses her, Sarah
threatens to go over her head to Heller. Michelle can't afford to
have someone she doesn't trust. She calls security to remove
Sarah from CTU and strip her of her access card. "You'll be sorry
for this," Sarah says as she is escorted out.

7:30 P.M.
As Conlon and his men approach the sporting goods shop, Jack has
the store owners prepare to defend themselves.

7:31 P.M.
Curtis voices his concern that the staff is stretched thin and
that they need Sarah back. Yet Michelle doesn't trust her. Curtis
suggests Tony, and Michelle reluctantly summons Tony to work with
Curtis and Edgar.

7:32 P.M.
With Jack and Paul still not located, Tony disagrees with
Michelle's call to have the tactical teams surround the perimeter
of the EMP blast site. He knows Jack will start a firefight to
force the enemy to break radio silence because it's the most
efficient way of being found. Despite Tony's plea, Michelle
refuses to change the plan.

7:33 P.M.
Jack sees the McLennan-Forster commandos advancing, and he
readies his crew with their weapons. Jack fires one shot,
deliberately missing a mercenary. Just as Jack suspected, the
commando radios his forces for backup. Jack and his team wait.

7:35 P.M.
Michelle apologizes to Audrey for being antagonistic towards her
earlier. Audrey thinks she is being too harsh on Tony. She
explains that Jack turned to him when he had no other choice, and
that Tony saved their lives. Audrey adds that Tony still cares
about Michelle.

7:36 P.M.
Michelle approaches Tony and says that she does value his input.
"Don't patronize me," Tony laughs. She tells him that, based on
his experience, she will consider what he says seriously. Tony
snidely remarks that he will always tell her what he thinks.

7:37 P.M.
As they lie in wait, the brothers tell Jack that their father
left them the business after he died. They think he would have
approved of their fight against the terrorists. Paul thanks Jack
for saving his life.

7:39 P.M.
Ticking clock.

7:43 P.M.
Tony questions Audrey on Jack's sudden change from desk job to
field agent. She thinks that Jack will want to return to
Washington, but Tony isn't so sure.

7:45 P.M.
Edgar sees radio frequencies being used near the McLennan-Forster
headquarters. Curtis acknowledges that Tony was right about
Jack's forcing an attack.

The commandos get into position outside the sporting goods store.
Conlon gives the orders to move in, and they begin firing. Jack
and his cohorts shoot back.

7:46 P.M.
Edgar gets infrared proof that there is automatic gunfire at the
spot of the radio transmission. Audrey becomes concerned, and
Curtis says that the ground forces won't be there for another 5
or 6 minutes. Michelle looks around, sheepish. She knows that her
decision was wrong.

7:47 P.M.
Conlon becomes aware that civilians are helping Jack. He gives
the order to get the documents. Jack and his team continue to
fire back.

7:48 P.M.
Jack orders his men to retreat into the back of the store. The
McLennan-Forster mercenaries blow open the store's entrance and
raid the premises. Jack instructs his men to shine their
flashlights into the commandos' eyes to counteract the night
vision goggles.

7:49 P.M.
Edgar sees that the gunfire has stopped. They suspect that Jack
and Paul could have been captured, along with the incriminating
evidence they were protecting.

Ticking clock.

7:54 P.M.
CTU teams get to the location, but they have no verification on
Jack and Paul. Tony stresses to the SWAT leader that the hostiles
cannot leave the site because there is evidence still at large.

7:55 P.M.
Conlon moves in with his night goggles. The SWAT team arrives and
shoots him down. They notify CTU that they have taken out all the
hostiles. Jack doesn't notice that Conlon is still alive.

7:56 P.M.
Tony lets Michelle know that Jack was saved. She offers him the
task of decoding the encrypted document, but he suggests that
Curtis take over. Michelle apologizes for bringing up his
drinking. Tony wants to leave, but she says she can't afford to
lose him. He agrees to stay.

7:58 P.M.
Jack thanks the brothers and promises to get them help putting
their store back together. He gives the encrypted document to the
SWAT leader to send to CTU. Paul sees Conlon rise up and aim his
gun at Jack. Paul pushes Jack out of the way, taking the bullet
instead. Jack kills Conlon once and for all. Jack tries to keep
Paul conscious. "I owed you," Paul says weakly. The medic tries
to save him.

Wearing his uniform, Anderson calls Marwan. "The President of the
United States is on a tight schedule," Marwan says. "We can't be

Jack flies with Paul on the medic helicopter back to CTU.

8:01 P.M.
Jack calls Audrey with the bad news about her husband and she
becomes upset.

8:03 P.M.
Heller updates the President about Marwan's plan and the
potential for more attacks. President Keeler is worried about
civil unrest, and he instructs Heller to secretly go over the
options to enact martial law.

8:05 P.M.
Heller and Audrey meet the chopper as it lands on the CTU
grounds. Jack consoles Audrey, but he doesn't know whether Paul
will survive. Michelle and Tony inform Jack that a name from the
encrypted document was on the terrorist watch list.

8:06 P.M.
As Paul is wheeled into surgery, Audrey tells him that she will
be waiting for him when he gets out.

8:07 P.M.
The name from the encrypted files is Joseph Fayed, a chemical
engineering professor. Instead of arresting Fayed, Jack wants
Dina Araz to go in undercover to get to Marwan.

8:08 P.M.
Marwan meets Mitch Anderson, who is dressed in his Air Force
uniform. Marwan promises him clearance and identification codes
for a flight package.

8:09 P.M.
An Air Force pilot is in a hotel room with his girlfriend. His
wife calls his cell phone to tell him that masked gunmen have her
and their children hostage. The girlfriend, who is in on the
plot, pulls out a gun. She orders him to get dressed.

8:10 P.M.
Jack enters the holding room and shows Dina the photo of Fayed.
She says she doesn't know him. Jack offers Dina the chance to
have a life with her son Behrooz in return for helping them get
to Fayed. She agrees to take Jack as hostage to Fayed. Tactical
teams are already in place near Fayed's house.

8:13 P.M.
Ticking clock.

8:17 P.M.
The Air Force pilot puts up a fight with the woman holding him
captive. She says she doesn't know who is paying her. Anderson
comes in and hands the girl a bag full of cash. She leaves.
Anderson tells the pilot that they have a plane to catch.

8:19 P.M.
Jack lays out the plan for the CTU team. Dina will tell Marwan
that she took Jack captive, and CTU can track this. Michelle asks
Curtis to interrogate the detainees from McLennan-Forster.

8:21 P.M.
Tony accuses Edgar of not being focused. He lets Michelle know
about Edgar's mother. Michelle asks about Chloe, and Tony says
that Driscoll forced her to resign.

8:22 P.M.
Michelle calls Chloe and asks her to come back. Chloe resists,
but Michelle convinces her to do it because Jack is in a risky
situation. Chloe agrees to help out only for the day.

8:23 P.M.
Tony tries to get Jack to tell Audrey that he's about to go
undercover in a potentially dangerous operation. Jack thinks
she's been through enough already.

8:24 P.M.
Dina refuses to cooperate until she sees her son. Jack says she
will only have a minute with him and brings her to Behrooz.

8:25 P.M.
Dina assures Behrooz that they will be together if she helps the
agents find Marwan. Behrooz begs her not to do this.

Edgar is surprised to see Chloe brought back to CTU to assist
him. He tells Michelle that he doesn't need the help, but
Michelle insists that he has no choice.

Jack and Dina arrive at Fayed's house as CTU operatives conduct
audio surveillance with mobile parabolics. Jack hands Dina his
gun because they have to make it look convincing. Jack cuts
himself to make it look like he was injured in the attack.

8:33 P.M.
Dina knocks on Fayed's door and says that she has a hostage who
Marwan will want. She tells Fayed that her husband was killed in
an ambush, but that she and Jack escaped. Fayed nervously calls

Chloe can't tap into Fayed and Marwan's phone conversation
because the signal is scrambled. Marwan orders Fayed to bring
them to him.

8:37 P.M.
The Air Force pilot anxiously enters the base as the guards
search his car. They don't see Anderson hiding inside the
collapsed backseat. Anderson radios Marwan and then kills the
pilot. Anderson takes the man's passcard and identification. He
then snips the thumb off the body with a pair of pliers.

The CTU doctor explains to Audrey and Heller that he called in
a neurosurgeon to remove a bullet lodged near Paul's spine.
Audrey weeps, telling her father that she didn't realize how much
she cared for Paul until now. Heller says that he has to leave
because the President asked him to do something important.

8:46 P.M.
Chloe tracks on satellite as Fayed drives Dina and Jack. When
Fayed turns into a tunnel, the agents following drop back so that
they are not spotted. This is too far for the parabolic to reach
the car and they can't hear what's going on. Terrorists dressed
as construction workers grab Jack and Dina from the car and hand
Fayed a briefcase. He drives off. Jack and Dina are loaded into
another van which goes out the opposite way.

8:48 P.M.
CTU sees Fayed's car but they realize that Jack and Dina are not
inside. Michelle orders the follow team to stop Fayed's car.

Marwan accuses Dina of lying because the men who followed her
were killed when Fayed martyred himself. Marwan asks her to prove
her loyalty by killing Jack. He hands her a gun.

8:58 P.M.
Dina aims at Jack's head. At the last second, she turns the gun
on Marwan and pulls the trigger. The chamber clicks empty. "Just
what I thought," Marwan says calmly. He orders his men to kill
Dina and take Jack away.

Chloe gets word that local police found the abandoned van that
Jack was in. Dina's body was inside. Michelle notifies the CTU
staff that Marwan might be holding Jack.

Jack wakes up in the back of another van. He hears Marwan talking
on the phone to Anderson. Anderson tells Marwan that the flight
he was supposed to pilot has been grounded because of technical
difficulties. Marwan warns him that their window of opportunity
closes in an hour.

held captive by Marwan. Audrey is angry, and she demands that
Michelle get him back.

9:07 P.M.
Marwan and his men bring Jack to their hideout and chain him to
a pipe. Marwan asks whether the government has any other links to
their plot. Jack accuses him of failing in his master plan. The
guard slams Jack with a metal pipe.

9:09 P.M.
One of the guards alerts Marwan that the police have been
notified about the missing family of the Air Force pilot. Since
he was a military official, the federal agencies will be quickly
notified. Marwan wants to distract CTU so that they don't realize
the significance of this report.

9:10 P.M.
Marwan questions Jack about Behrooz without letting on why he is
interested. Jack tells Marwan to call CTU himself. When Marwan
leaves the room, Jack notices a telephone panel box in proximity
to his chained hands.

9:11 P.M.
Chloe and Edgar argue over seniority. She had assumed that she
would be fully reinstated in her old job. Curtis confirms that,
for the day, Edgar will be her supervisor on paper. Chloe
begrudgingly accepts this even though she doesn't think it's

9:12 P.M.
Marwan phones CTU and asks to speak to the director. Edgar sets
up filters and tracers on the call. Michelle picks up, and Marwan

Marwan orders an associate to notify him the moment the
information about the pilot's family's disappearance gets

In the briefing room, Tony surmises that either Behrooz has
a personal connection to Marwan or else has some damaging
information to the terrorist plot. Michelle asks for a background
check on Behrooz, and she wants Curtis to interrogate the boy.

9:19 P.M.
Tony suggests to Curtis that they apply physical pressure on
Behrooz because they've run out of time. Curtis summons Richards,
the torture specialist.

Audrey asks Tony if they have any updated news. He lets her know
that Jack is alive and that Marwan wants to trade him for
Behrooz. Tony warns her that the trade may not even happen if
Behrooz proves tactically valuable to stopping the terrorists.

9:20 P.M.
Curtis interrogates Behrooz without letting him know that Dina is
dead. He becomes physically forceful, and Behrooz maintains that
he doesn't know anything about Marwan. Richards enters the room
with his trusty syringe. Behrooz cries out in terror.

9:22 P.M.
Marwan calls Michelle with the location for the exchange. She
asks for proof that Jack is alive, and Marwan holds the phone
out. Jack quickly shouts that he is in an abandoned warehouse
downtown. Marwan hangs up. Jack tells Marwan that he is
expendable and that CTU won't give up Behrooz if he is so

Meg alerts Chloe that an Air Force pilot's family is missing, but
Chloe says that Edgar is in charge and should handle it. Meg
burns the information onto a disk. Chloe warns Edgar that Meg has
something for him.

9:33 P.M.
Tony lets Audrey know that they still haven't decided whether to
go ahead with the exchange for Jack.

9:34 P.M.
Michelle introduces the staff to Bill Buchanan from Division. He
has come in to oversee the operation for the prisoner exchange.
The interrogation on Behrooz came up empty and there was no
connection found in his background check. A scan of Behrooz's
body showed that there wasn't anything implanted. Since the CTU
trace on Jack and Dina proved fruitless, Buchanan believes this
exchange is their only chance to locate Marwan.

9:35 P.M.
Anderson tells Marwan that he should be airborne in thirty
minutes. Jack, meanwhile, has twisted the wires in the telephone
panel box to cause sparks. Marwan's thugs enter the room. While
still handcuffed to the pipes, Jack knocks both of them down with
his feet. This effectively distracts them from the box. The men
subdue Jack and lead him out.

Curtis tells Behrooz that he will be traded to Marwan for an
agent. He also says that Dina knows about this. They put a watch
with a transmitter on him and inject another transmitter into the
back of his head.

9:44 P.M.
Tony assigns Edgar to hook up a video feed to the van where
Behrooz is being transported. He tells him this takes priority
over the hourly police reports. Edgar puts Meg's disk aside.

Michelle with final instructions about the handoff. He hangs up,
and orders his men to kill Jack once they have Behrooz.

Even though Marwan is not at the meeting point, Buchanan orders
CTU to proceed with the exchange. Behrooz walks toward Jack and
asks him about Dina. Jack lies and says he doesn't know where she

Behrooz gets in the terrorists' van, and Marwan gives the signal
for his sniper to kill Jack. Suddenly, a CTU sniper takes out
Marwan's sniper first. The field ops grab Jack and throw him in
the van. Jack questions why they handed over the boy.

9:56 P.M.
Jack calls Tony and explains that he shorted out some of the
phone lines in Marwan's hideout. He wants CTU to find phone
service obstructions within a radius of the dam.

9:57 P.M.
Marwan's men spot the tracking device on Behrooz's watch and
remove it. They tell him that Dina is dead. They also find the
injected transmitter in his head and carve it out with a knife.

9:58 P.M.
Chloe sees that both tracking devices have been obstructed. She
asks Edgar for help in setting up the satellite to track Behrooz
in the van. Edgar says he found something in the local police
reports that she should see, but Chloe wants him to do the
satellite first.

9:59 P.M.
From the phone records, Tony gets coordinates on Marwan's
location. He orders the tactical teams to be sent there.

Anderson assures Marwan that he's just about to get in the air.

Michelle and Chloe brief Buchanan. They have determined that
eight men are in Marwan's hideout, and they think that Marwan is
still there.

Marwan speaks to Nicole, the woman who lured the Air Force pilot
into bed to get his passcards. Nicole is at Anderson's apartment,
which was shared by Aziz, who was one of Marwan's accomplices.
Nicole cannot find a backup hard drive which has the entire plan
of the terrorist cell. Aziz was killed before he could tell
Marwan where he hid it.

Jack and his SWAT team blow open the door of the hideout and raid
the premises. Marwan runs up a set of stairs as Jack sets out to
find him. The agents take out a number of cell members. Jack
approaches a computer that is self-deleting. He can't stop it.

10:11 P.M.
Jack sees a red light flash, and he warns the SWAT members to

and the team back to CTU.

1:46 A.M.
Chloe and Edgar fight over the use of his system. Edgar refuses
to give up what he is working on even though Chloe's request is
more urgent. Chloe appeals to Tony and explains the situation
about the woman who called in. Tony orders Edgar to let Chloe on
his computer.

1:48 A.M.
Morrison calls Marwan, who is in an underground sewer tunnel.
Morrison says that the warhead has been reconfigured. He also
lets Marwan know that there may be a security breach because
Sabir's girlfriend is getting suspicious. Morrison promises that
it is being taken care of. Marwan climbs out of the tunnel
through a manhole cover.

1:49 A.M.
Chloe updates Tony and Buchanan on what Nabila found on Sabir's
computer. It has the schematics for a chip that controls the
trigger on the stolen warhead. Nabila thinks her boyfriend is out
of state, and Tony assumes that the man is in Iowa. The other
files on the computer are locked, and Buchanan orders Chloe to go
to Nabila's house to unlock them herself. Chloe is hesitant
because she's not a field agent.

1:50 A.M.
Ticking clock.

1:54 A.M.
Chloe calls Edgar from the car to make sure he has everything
covered. She confesses that she is scared of being in the field.
Edgar says that he asked Buchanan if he could go in her place,
but Buchanan said she was the best analyst at CTU.

1:55 A.M.
Chloe and two other agents arrive at Nabila's house. She gets to
work on decoding the laptop when the house is raided. A gunman
kills the agents, and Chloe and Nabila hide with the computer
inside another room. The gunman fires at the locked door.

1:57 A.M.
With no weapon, Chloe barricades the door and calls Edgar for
help. Curtis summons the tactical teams. Jack gets on the phone
to guide her, but Chloe hangs up.

1:58 A.M.
Chloe and Nabila escape out of the house and get in the CTU car.
They can't find the keys and have locked themselves inside. The
man shoots at the bulletproof car and Chloe calls Jack. Chloe
finds the weapons stored in the back seat, but it is locked.
Curtis hunts for the combination. The gunman gets in his car and
rams their vehicle.

1:59 A.M.
Curtis gets the combination and Chloe is able to open the case.
She and Nabila exit the car, and Chloe fires an automatic rifle
at the gunman. She kills him.

Ticking clock.

2:00 A.M.
David Palmer enters the White House. His former Secret Service
protector, Agent Aaron Pierce, escorts him to the bunker.
President Logan admits to Palmer that he has made mistakes. Now
he is asking Palmer to deal with CTU on finding the missing
nuclear weapon. Logan wants him to be his full proxy.

2:05 A.M.
After the President leaves the room, Novick offers to leave if
Palmer is uncomfortable being with him. Although Novick betrayed
him during his Administration, Palmer wants him to stay because
of his insider knowledge. Palmer immediately gets to work.

2:06 A.M.
Chloe continues to tap into the laptop amid the crime scene at
Nabila's house. She tells Jack that emails about the weapon
trigger had been sent from someone using a false domain name
inside the United States. Chloe forwards the emails to Edgar so
that he can identify the point of origin. Jack compassionately
asks how she's doing. She answers that, despite killing someone,
she's still on the job.

2:07 A.M.
Edgar finds that the person who sent the emails is a Chinese
research scientist who worked on China's nuclear weapons program.
Lee Jong had been fired by the Chinese government, and Jack
believes he is working as a freelance operative for Marwan
because China would not use someone so traceable.

2:08 A.M.
In the clinic, Audrey tells Paul that he can't be moved to
a spinal hospital because of the FAA restrictions on air travel.
She is trying to get him an exemption. Audrey strokes his arm and
says she wants to go with him. She's not so sure about her
feelings for Jack anymore.

2:09 A.M.
Jack enters the clinic to check on Paul, and he senses the
tension with Audrey. Jack thanks Paul for saving his life before
he is pulled out of the room by Buchanan. Audrey tells Paul that
Jack doesn't know she is leaving with him.

2:10 A.M.
Buchanan informs Jack that they found Lee, but he's at the
Chinese Consulate where the U.S. has no jurisdiction. Jack thinks
Lee knew they were coming for him so he went there for sanctuary.
Buchanan explains that Logan enlisted former President Palmer for
help with the crisis, and that Palmer wants to speak to him.

2:11 A.M.
Palmer tells Jack that he is going to call the Chinese Consul and
explain the situation. If they don't hand over Lee for
questioning, then Palmer wants Jack to do whatever it takes to
bring this man into custody.

2:12 A.M.
Edgar gets the video recovered in the tunnel sent over from
Division. He plays it for Michelle and Buchanan. They are
horrified when they see Marwan make his speech to the camera.
"You wake up today to a different world," Marwan says. They
interpret this to mean the nuclear bomb will be set off by dawn.
Sunrise on the East Coast is less than two hours away.

Ticking clock.

2:17 A.M.
Palmer asks Koo Yin, the Chinese Consul in Los Angeles, to hand
over Lee to the United States. Koo says that Lee claims he has no
connection to the terrorists, but such a request would need to go
through proper channels. Palmer asks him to call the Premier in
China as an act of friendship between their countries. Koo
promises to do his best as quickly as possible.

2:18 A.M.
When Tony gets up to retrieve a fax, Michelle answers his phone.
It's Jen, who says she is the woman Tony is living with. Michelle
reacts slightly, and she tells Tony who is on the phone. Jen asks
Tony if he's working at CTU with his ex-wife.

2:20 A.M.
Tony apologizes to Michelle, but she doesn't want to hear his
explanation. Michelle asks if he loves Jen and Tony says no.

2:21 A.M.
Chloe returns to CTU and Edgar approaches to ask how she is
doing. Chloe admits that she is worried because she didn't feel
remorse for killing another person. She hopes that maybe she'll
suffer a delayed reaction later.

2:22 A.M.
Buchanan calls Palmer regarding Marwan's speech and CTU's
assumptions about the bomb. Palmer immediately calls back Koo
with urgency. Koo cannot promise that he will get an answer back
from the Premier in time.

2:24 A.M.
Palmer phones Jack, who is staked outside the Chinese Consulate
building. He says that their standstill requires a desperate
action. Jack understands the insinuation. Palmer says that no one
connected within the government can admit to knowing about this
plan. If Jack is caught, he will be tried under Chinese law. Jack
accepts this non-official assignment.

2:25 A.M.
Jack calls Tony and explains the covert operation on orders from
the White House. Tony is the only person at CTU who can know
right now. Jack instructs him to have the satellite monitor the
Consulate building, but to alter the satellite logs so there is
no record that anything ever happened.

2:26 A.M.
Ticking clock.

2:30 A.M.
Using infrared, Tony sees the bodily activity in the Consulate
building and passes this on to Jack. Jack orders Curtis and his
team to wait in the van in order to make the operation deniable.
He tells them to hide their faces and use only non-lethal force
when he emerges.

2:31 A.M.
Wearing a mask, Jack enters the Consulate building as Tony guides
him to the guards' locations. Jack climbs up to an inside balcony
and shoots a tranquilizer gun into the neck of a Chinese guard,
who drops to the floor.

2:33 A.M.
Jack silently takes down guards who stand at the room where Lee
is. Jack knocks out Lee and carries him. Tony alerts Jack to
approaching guards, and Jack runs as they fire at him. Kee is
hit, but Jack does not notice that. Koo comes out and is
accidentally shot by his own guards. Curtis and the agents run
to the entrance to help Jack, and a Chinese guard briefly unmasks
an agent named Bern. Bern recovers and puts his mask back on.

2:35 A.M.
Jack throws Lee in the van and they realize that Lee's been shot
in the back. The van speeds away. Jack radios Tony that Lee has
no exit wound, but that he should prepare medics standing by.
Jack has the translator tell Lee that they will treat his wound
and ease his pain.

2:36 A.M.
Audrey lets Paul know that she got clearance to leave on
a medical plane at 8:00. She says she will look for an apartment
once he's settled into the hospital. Suddenly, Paul has trouble
breathing. The doctor sees that the sac around his heart is
filling with blood, and that Paul will need to get back into
surgery immediately to heal his heart.

2:38 A.M.
Ticking clock.

2:43 A.M.
Jack has the translator ask Lee about Marwan's location because
they have emails proving that he was involved. Lee says that he
knows where Marwan is but wants to be protected because Marwan
will kill him. Jack agrees to save Lee from prosecution and grant
his safety if his information gets them to the warhead in time.
Before he confesses to anything, Lee wants it in writing from the

2:44 A.M.
Palmer calls Jack, who explains Lee's demands. Palmer promises to
get the guarantee from Logan.

2:45 A.M.
Palmer has Novick work on Logan's signed pardon while he takes
a phone call from Su Ming, the Chinese Deputy Consul. 

2:46 A.M.
Palmer is shocked to hear that Koo was killed in a raid on the
Consulate building. Su questions whether the American government
was involved, and Palmer denies responsibility. Su pledges to
launch an investigation.

2:47 A.M.
Novick informs Palmer that President Logan will provide Lee with
a written guarantee. Palmer is concerned that Koo's death will
set off a political maelstrom with China. If China discovers that
the United States was involved, then that could have serious
repercussions in the long run.

2:48 A.M.
Buchanan is angry with Tony for keeping him out of the loop
about the raid on the Consulate. Buchanan is now certain that
reinstating Tony was a mistake. Tony asks if this is really about
"something else."

2:49 A.M.
Jack has the translator tell Lee that the President's written
guarantee will be granted. Lee doesn't respond. Jack listens to
the man's chest and realizes that his lungs are filling with
fluid. Jack begs Lee to tell him where Marwan is, but Lee passes

2:50 A.M.
Ticking clock.

2:55 A.M.
Audrey watches through the window as the doctor performs surgery
on Paul in the CTU ward. Suddenly, Jack bursts into the operating
room with a gurney and demands that the doctor help Lee. The
doctor refuses to prematurely stop working on Paul. Jack pulls
his gun on the doctor, explaining that Lee can help them save
millions of people. The doctor says that Paul will die if they
end the operation, but Jack makes him switch patients.

2:56 A.M.
Audrey is stunned as Paul is abandoned. She tries to talk to
Jack, but he yells that he is only doing his job. Audrey starts
to become violent, and a pair of agents pulls her out of the
operating room.

2:57 A.M.
Paul's blood pressure crashes. As the doctor works on Lee, he
tells Jack to use the defibrillator on Paul. Jack hits Paul with
the paddles twice, but it doesn't work. The doctor tells him
where the epinephrine injections are located, but that too proves
useless. Jack tries furiously to pump Paul's chest, but Paul

2:59 A.M.
Audrey cries. She attacks Jack with punches. He just stands there
in shock. "I hate you, Jack! You killed him!" she screams as she
is carried out of the operating room. The doctor continues to
operate on Lee.

Ticking clock.

3:00 A.M.
Paul's body is wheeled out of the operating room as the doctor
works on Lee. Jack goes out to find Audrey crying. He apologizes
for what happened. She pushes him away, saying that she can't
bear to be near him. Audrey asks Jack to leave.

3:04 A.M.
Buchanan assures Jack that he did the right thing by putting
Lee's life over Paul's.

3:05 A.M.
Novick tells Jack that the Chinese Consul was killed by his own
men during the raid. Novick wants Jack to make sure each member
of the team has an alibi for the time of the ambush. He and
Palmer want to avoid a serious confrontation with China.

3:06 A.M.
Chloe discovers that someone on the outside is trying to jam the
CTU satellite servers. She alerts Buchanan, who hopes it will
lead them to Marwan.

3:07 A.M.
One of Marwan's men is unable to jam the CTU satellite because of
their new security system that was installed in the last week.
Marwan wants to move the schedule up by an hour.

3:08 A.M.
Palmer and Novick decide to construct a plausible scenario for
the situation that doesn't involve the U.S. government. Palmer
asks Novick to have CTU come up with a list of anti-Chinese
factions that have attacked the country's embassies. Although
these groups are Asian extremists, Jack's men wore masks and were

3:09 A.M.
Cheng, the head of security at the Chinese Consulate, goes over
the surveillance footage and finds that one of the masked men's
faces was briefly revealed. He has the image of the man's face
sent to his home country's intelligence databases for

3:10 A.M.
Jack regroups his ambush team and explains the problem with the
Chinese Consul. They must all have alibis for the night. Agent
Bern is a little uneasy.

3:11 A.M.
Marwan sets up the warhead to be delivered by missile. He
believes that the Americans will look on land instead of
searching for a missile.

3:12 A.M.
Ticking clock.

3:16 A.M.
Jack tells Chloe that he needs Audrey to authorize Defense
Department data sent over. Chloe questions whether it will be
awkward for Jack with Audrey now that he let her husband die. She
offers to be his sounding board if he ever needs a friend to talk
to. Jack looks at Chloe incredulously.

3:17 A.M.
Jack asks Audrey for her DoD clearance, and she inquires about
Lee's health. There is tension between them.

3:18 A.M.
The CTU team meets. Their primary goal is to figure out how and
where Marwan will set off the nuclear bomb.

3:19 A.M.
Cheng finds a match for the face in the surveillance footage. He
gets the file for Agent Bern from CTU in Los Angeles.

Michelle takes a call from Cheng, who wants to come over to meet
with her even though CTU is in the middle of a national security
crisis. Cheng accuses her agency of raiding the Consulate and
kidnapping Lee, which can be construed as an act of war. Michelle
doesn't confirm or deny this, and she quickly gets off the phone.
Cheng calls the U.S. Secretary of State.

3:21 A.M.
Jack cautiously approaches Audrey and encourages her to go get
some rest. Audrey snaps at him.

3:22 A.M.
Buchanan lets Jack know that Michelle received a call from the
Chinese Consulate about the ambush. They claim to have evidence
that CTU was involved. Jack wants to dismiss this, but Buchanan
insists that it's vital.

3:23 A.M.
Novick gets a list from CTU of groups that tried to attack
Chinese targets. Palmer thinks they can convince China to save
face by placing the blame on someone else. President Logan storms
in because he just received a call from the Secretary of State
about a covert action against the Chinese Consulate. Palmer
admits to being the one who sanctioned the attack. Logan is
furious that a fragile relationship was tampered with, but Palmer
is unapologetic. It was the only course of action that they could
have taken. Palmer asks that Logan allow him to do what he was he
was brought in for.

3:24 A.M.
Ticking clock.

3:29 A.M.
Tony tells Buchanan that Lee is out of surgery. Michelle lets
them know that the Secretary of State authorized the head of
security from the Chinese Consulate to come to CTU to question
them. Buchanan says that Novick is working on placing the blame
with someone else.

3:30 A.M.
Noting Audrey's change of heart toward Jack, Tony tells Michelle
that he hates being without her. Michelle opens up and says that
she never wanted them to end up this way. They are interrupted by
Curtis alerting them to Cheng's arrival.

3:31 A.M.
Buchanan and Jack greet Cheng in the interrogation room. Jack has
changed into a suit. Cheng recognizes Jack's name and asks why
he's not with Secretary Heller. He finds it odd when Jack
explains that he was kept at CTU for the day. Cheng suggests that
Jack is capable of handling a covert operation, and Jack asserts
that neither he nor anyone at CTU was responsible for the
incident. Cheng pulls out the surveillance image of Bern, and
Jack claims that the photo has been altered. He says that their
intelligence targeted the People's Freedom Coalition, which has
European mercenaries. Cheng asks to speak to Bern and is told
he's not working. As Cheng complains, Jack pretends to get a cell
call and walks out of the room.

3:34 A.M.
Jack has Chloe get a chopper ready. He tells Bern that the
Chinese have a photo of his face, and Bern confesses to his mask
being pulled off for a brief second. Jack wants him to leave the
city, warning that he may have to answer questions from the
Chinese later on.

3:35 A.M.
Lee wakes up and is ready for questioning. Jack runs to the
operating room with the translator. Lee says that he doesn't know
where the warhead is, but he knows where Marwan might be. Marwan
is moving around. Lee lists the three locations in Los Angeles,
and two of these CTU already knows about. Jack has Chloe prepare
Curtis and his team to move out to the third site.

3:37 A.M.
Ticking clock.

3:42 A.M.
Curtis lets Audrey know that Cheng wants to question her. The
fake hourly reports for Jack list him as working with Audrey at
the time of the ambush. Audrey is appalled that Buchanan wants
her to lie for Jack, but Curtis says her compliance is really to
protect the United States government.

3:43 A.M.
Jack explains to Audrey what happened with the Chinese Consulate.
She is frustrated with all the lies and broken protocols, but
Jack said that it has helped save her and Heller, as well as stop
all but one power plant from melting down. They have to hope that
it keeps working.

3:45 A.M.
Audrey tells Cheng that she and Jack worked on data processing
with Edgar. Cheng questions why Jack would be brought into CTU
only to sit behind a computer. He also notes that the logs show
that Paul died during that timeframe, and he believes Audrey was
in the clinic with him instead of working with Jack. Audrey
doesn't budge, and says that her answer stands.

3:46 A.M.
As he drives with Curtis, Jack gets a call from Palmer. He briefs
Palmer on the information they obtained from Lee. Jack also says
that Cheng has a photo of one of the CTU agents, but that they
feel it is inconclusive.

3:47 A.M.
Palmer has Novick advise the President that Cheng must be removed
from CTU because he's slowing them down. Novick thinks he can get
Logan to sign off on that.

3:48 A.M.
Novick goes into the President's office and explains the
situation with Cheng. Logan feels that to ask Cheng to leave
would be to admit complicity, allowing China to escalate the
crisis. Novick says that the warhead is the priority, and that
they should worry about the lives of Americans first. Logan
accuses Novick of forming an alliance with Palmer against him so
that the two of them can run the country by themselves. Novick
denies this, and asks if he wants Palmer to leave. President
Logan caves, and has Buchanan notified that Cheng should be
removed from CTU.

3:49 A.M.
Ticking clock.

3:53 A.M.
Jack and Curtis pull up to the location. Jack radios Chloe, but
she cannot confirm that Marwan is in the building because it has
an encrypted microwave uplink to it. Although they have no
confirmation, they are out of time. Jack gives the go ahead for
the raid.

3:54 A.M.
On his way out, Cheng tells Buchanan that he will return in a few
days with a formal investigation.

3:55 A.M.
Cheng hears someone address Edgar, and he approaches him.
Although Edgar says he is busy, Cheng asks if he was working on
DoD files with Audrey. "Yeah, until she was called down to the
clinic," Edgar answers. Cheng then asks if he continued working
with Jack after she left. Edgar is confused, and Chloe pulls him
away. She calls Edgar an idiot for not keeping his mouth shut.
Cheng calls the Consulate with news that it was Jack who led the

3:56 A.M.
Marwan orders the sequence to start. As the countdown begins, he
shuts down the computer and leaves with his men. Meanwhile, Jack
and the SWAT team stealthily enter the building. They take out
Marwan's guards.

3:57 A.M.
Jack traps Marwan and shoots him in the arm. Marwan tells him
that it is too late because the missile is already set. Jack is
horrified. He sees a live feed of a missile on the computer, and
he radios this back to Tony. There is less than a minute to
launch. Curtis sends the feed to CTU, but Tony can't trace where
the transmission is from or identify the location. Chloe and the
team try everything, but the missile fires and leaves its launch
pad, carrying the warhead to an unknown location.

3:59 A.M.
Ticking clock.

4:00 A.M.
Since it has stealth technology, the missile can't be traced.
Michelle figures out that the target might be anywhere in the
continental United States.

4:01 A.M.
Jack informs the White House that he is unsure if Marwan can be
broken. Palmer and Novick discuss the possibility that Washington
is the target. Palmer instructs Novick to move the high-ranking
government officials to safe houses, but not tell them why. They
need this to remain a secret until Jack finds out more.

4:04 A.M.
With time slipping away, Jack confronts Marwan to find out what
he had hoped to accomplish. Marwan feels that he has already
achieved what he set out to do -- let the American people know
that they cannot intervene in other countries with impunity.
Marwan says that the President only sees him as evil. "As you see
us," Jack replies.

4:06 A.M.
Edgar shows Chloe calls pulled up on Marwan's cell phone. One is
from Heller's son, Richard, who called a week ago.

4:07 A.M.
Chloe tells Buchanan and his staff about the connection with
Richard Heller. She alerts the field teams near Richard's house
to pick him up. Buchanan says he will call Secretary Heller.

4:08 A.M.
Tony lets Audrey know about Richard, but she refuses to believe
that her brother might be linked to a terrorist. Meanwhile, Jack
and Curtis get news of the Richard Heller connection. Jack wants
to take Marwan back to CTU immediately.

4:09 A.M.
As the agents load Marwan into the SUV, a rocket-propelled
grenade streaks past Jack and explodes one of the CTU cars. The
agents fire back at the snipers above, while another terrorist
climbs into the SUV that Marwan is in and peels out. Curtis
radios the agents that Marwan has escaped.

4:10 A.M.
Ticking clock.

4:15 A.M.
Chloe confirms that Marwan's men were already secured in the
location before the agents arrived. Marwan has ditched the SUV
and she can't find him on the satellite. Tony gives the bad news
to Jack, and Buchanan says that their priority is now focused on
Richard Heller. Jack and Curtis head back to CTU to interrogate

4:16 A.M.
The President addresses the Cabinet assembled in the White House
bunker on the nuclear missile threat. Speaker of the House Donald
Ashton questions why the Administration is not informing the
public. Logan leaves to confer with Palmer, and Ashton notices
the body language between the two men. It's clear that Palmer is
in the dominant, confident position to Logan.

4:18 A.M.
After discussing the fact that Jack will be torturing Audrey's
brother to get information, Tony wonders whether he and Michelle
can continue their relationship if they don't leave CTU for good.
He asks her to quit the job that she loves so much in order to be
with him.

4:20 A.M.
Richard Heller creates a scene as he is dragged into CTU. Jack
enters, and Audrey begs him not to hurt her brother. She wants to
talk to Richard herself. Jack allows her to take five minutes
with him.

4:21 A.M.
Congressman Ashton tries to get information out of Novick about
Palmer's role as advisor. He makes his feelings known that it is
his role as Speaker of the House -- and not David Palmer's job --
to take over the country if Logan is not up to the task. Novick
assures Ashton that Logan is in complete control.

4:22 A.M.
Novick tells Logan and Palmer about Ashton's concern over
succession of command. Palmer is aware of Ashton's ambition. He
could cause problems for them. Palmer suggests that they show him
who's in charge.

Audrey meets with Richard in the interrogation room. He claims he
doesn't know anything about Marwan or the missile.

4:30 A.M.
James Heller arrives, and he sees that Audrey isn't making any
headway. Curtis can tell from Richard's heart rate that he is
holding something back. Heller goes in and demands that his son
reveal what he knows. Richard finally gives up that a man and
a woman picked him up in a bar a week ago. He took them home and
had sex with the man. The woman might have used his phone.

4:33 A.M.
Richard accuses his father of being disgusted with him because of
his lifestyle. Yet Heller is angry that Richard didn't divulge
this earlier to prevent putting the whole country in jeopardy.

4:34 A.M.
Ticking clock.

4:39 A.M.
Chloe finds the cab driver who picked up the couple from
Richard's apartment. He drove them to a housing complex called
Mercerwood. Edgar discovers that the phone call from Richard's
cell to Marwan activated a listen-in so that the terrorists could
hear all of Richard's calls. That is how Marwan knew that Heller
was going to visit his son. When Buchanan refuses to give up
Curtis to the field, Jack asks for Tony's help.

4:40 A.M.
President Logan greets his Cabinet and explains that he asked
Palmer in as an advisor. Congressman Ashton is quick to question
what Palmer's position will be, and Logan asserts that he will
function outside the chain of command. Palmer goes on to control
the meeting, and Logan puts him in his place. Palmer excuses
himself from the room and the situation. This prearranged
performance seems to satisfy Ashton's worries.

4:42 A.M.
Palmer walks into another office, where Novick has watched the
Cabinet meeting. Novick thinks that everything went according to
Palmer's plan and that they won't have to worry about Ashton

4:43 A.M.
As Tony prepares to go out into the field with Jack, Michelle
tears up. "I can't spend another day without you," she weeps.
They kiss, and she agrees to leave CTU for good.

Heller lets Audrey know that Richard will be released once he
identifies the suspects. She admits to her father that she feels

Jack calls Audrey from the helicopter. He expresses his feelings,
explaining that he wasn't sure she would still love him if she
knew everything he's done at CTU. Jack asks if they can talk once
everything is all over.

Edgar sends Jack the composite sketch based on Richard's

In the Mercerwood complex, a couple finishes having sex. Mandy,
who was last seen slipping a toxic disease onto President
Palmer's hand, tells Gary that they still have time to get to
Marwan. Suddenly, Mandy hears helicopters outside.

4:47 A.M.
Jack briefs the SWAT team in the chopper using the composite
sketches sent from CTU. Curtis confirms over radio that Richard
is ready to make the I.D. The helicopter lands near the
Mercerwood and the teams empty out.

4:48 A.M.
Mandy dresses and loads her weapons. She informs Gary that they
have been found, and now one of them will be forced to stay in

Gary's dead body slumped in a chair. They send his photo back to
CTU for confirmation. Jack radios Tony to look for the girl.

Mandy climbs up to the rooftop and shoots Agent Castle in the
arm. She brings Castle out at gunpoint to Tony. When Tony
doesn't drop his weapon, she shoots Castle again. Tony relents,
handing over his gun and radio. He offers himself up as hostage
instead of the wounded Castle.

4:57 A.M.
Mandy has Castle handcuff Tony. She then kills Castle and leads
Tony out.

At CTU, Richard verifies that the dead man is the one he met

After getting confirmation, Jack radios his teams. Neither Tony
nor Castle responds.

Jack runs up to the roof and finds Castle's body. He radios that
Tony is missing and could be a hostage. Jack alerts them that

Tony is bound and gagged in a vacant apartment. He's stripped of
his shirt. Mandy researches Tony's background on a laptop. She
sees a story on the web about his dismissal from CTU and his
connection to Michelle.

5:04 A.M.
Marwan calls Mandy and tells her not to be late for their
meeting. Mandy asks Tony if Michelle would commit treason to save
his life, like he did for her two years ago.

5:05 A.M.
Audrey tells Palmer and Novick that having the satellite make
another pass may take hours and will probably be too late to find
the missile. Palmer asks her to compile disaster scenarios for
all the urban cities within the missile's range. That includes
twenty of the largest cities in America.

5:07 A.M.
Michelle instructs Edgar to alert their teams that the objective
is to capture the suspect and proceed as if there is no hostage.
Michelle gets a call from Mandy, who sends a photo message of
Tony to prove that he's alive. Mandy wants Michelle to help her
escape. Michelle stalls, but Mandy demands that one of the exits
be cleared or else Tony will be killed.

5:10 A.M.
Ticking clock.

5:14 A.M
Michelle admits to Buchanan that she can't sacrifice the lives of
millions of people. She tells him about the call from the woman
holding Tony hostage.

5:16 A.M.
Buchanan immediately radios Jack and gives him the news. Jack
asks Michelle to let the woman think she is cooperating. He
promises to do everything he can to save Tony. Michelle confesses
to Buchanan that she was ready to do whatever the woman wanted
for Tony.

5:17 A.M.
Curtis arrives on the scene and Jack briefs him on the plan. They
are going to proceed as if Michelle had not betrayed the hostile.

5:18 A.M.
Buchanan radios Jack that the woman has not yet called Michelle
back. There are no fingerprints anywhere in the apartment and
there is no voiceprint from the call. This woman must be
a professional mercenary.

5:19 A.M.
Mandy watches through binoculars as the police vehicles move out
from the area that she had cleared with Michelle. She then tasers
Tony and he passes out. Mandy applies lipstick and goes outside
the apartment.

5:20 A.M.
Mandy knocks on a neighbor's door. She shoots one of the
roommates, and tells the other two to keep quiet.

5:21 A.M.
Ticking clock.

5:25 A.M.
President Logan informs Palmer that the Chinese are determined to
blame America for the raid on the Consulate. Palmer assures him
that CTU is having the agent in the photo removed from their
site. Logan becomes agitated and worried that the missile is
targeted at the White House. "We will prevent the warhead from
going off," Palmer says emphatically. He advises Logan to remain

5:28 A.M.
Bern, the agent in the surveillance photo at the Chinese
Consulate, calls Buchanan to let him know that he's arrived in
San Diego. He is to fabricate an alibi with the local CTU office.
The accompanying agent leads Bern to a car, but Cheng, the head
of security for the Consulate, is inside. Bern struggles and the
men hold him at gunpoint. The real CTU agents are tied up outside
the hangar.

5:29 A.M.
Cheng demands that Bern answer questions about the raid on the
Consulate because the Chinese government insists that someone
take responsibility for the death of the Consul. Cheng wants to
know who gave the orders. When Bern refuses to answer, Cheng says
he will convince him to change his mind.

5:30 A.M.
Mandy calls Michelle, who confirms that the teams have been
deployed. Mandy threatens to blow Tony's brains out if she thinks
this is a trap. When she hangs up, Michelle snaps at Edgar.
Buchanan and Chloe notice Michelle's growing anxiety.

5:31 A.M.
The CTU teams hide in the area near the apartment exit. As the
rain falls, Jack spots a woman and a man walking under an

Mandy calls Michelle and says that she has Tony at gunpoint.
Michelle confirms that her agents are cleared out.

5:32 A.M.
Jack thinks it's strange that the woman is in the open and
risking her exposure. Mandy tells Michelle that she will give her
Tony's location once she's out.

5:33 A.M.
As the couple approaches a parked car, Mandy spots the agents who
are about to descend upon them. She chastises Michelle for
selling her out. Suddenly, the car explodes. Michelle watches
from the video monitors and screams in horror. Jack runs out to
the flaming wreck and radios back that the woman blew herself up
with Tony.

5:34 A.M.
Ticking clock.

5:38 A.M.
Buchanan calls the President and Palmer to explain that their
only lead killed herself with Tony. He says that CTU has no
expectation of locating the missile. Palmer thinks they must
alert the agencies and military to prepare for the aftermath of
martial law. They have Buchanan redirect CTU's priority to
disaster management.

5:40 A.M.
Logan blames Palmer for allowing the worst disaster in American
history. Palmer is stunned at Logan's ingratitude.

5:41 A.M.
Buchanan consoles Michelle. He says that the woman would have
probably killed Tony anyway, and that she made the right decision
to not give in to her demands. Despite her insistence that she
keep working, Buchanan orders Michelle to go home.

5:42 A.M.
Jack replays the last phone call, trying to find an answer. He
tells Buchanan that it doesn't make sense that this woman would
blow herself up when she was a professional and not a fanatic.
Buchanan thinks Jack is only blaming himself for Tony's death and
gives him a direct order from the White House to move out.

5:44 A.M.
Jack listens to the call on a headset and realizes that it
wasn't made from outside where it is raining. The woman was
calling from indoors with a view to the car. Jack has Curtis
alert the teams to move in.

5:45 A.M.
From inside the apartment, Mandy tells Tony that the agents are
coming back in. Her neighbors had been blown up for nothing. She
has him take off the handcuffs, and dress in another outfit.
Mandy leads him out at gunpoint. Tony sees broken glass on the
floor. He purposefully steps on it and grinds his bare feet in.
As he walks, he leaves a trail of blood.

5:47 A.M.
Ticking clock.

5:51 A.M.
As Jack and Curtis look through every hall in the complex,
another agent radios that he found fresh blood outside a door.
They run to that apartment and Jack sees the blood trail on the
ground. He leads the team to follow it.

5:52 A.M.
Mandy takes Tony to an underground parking garage. He ducks under
her gun and slams her into a column. She fights back, but Tony
manages to kick and head butt her with his cuffed hands. Mandy
regains her weapon and Tony gives in.

5:53 A.M.
Jack appears and trains his weapon on Mandy. Tony encourages Jack
to do whatever is necessary to take her down. "Do you really have
what it takes to let me kill him while you're looking him in the
eye?" Mandy asks. Without hesitation, Jack answers yes. She is
about to call his bluff, when Jack sees Curtis come from behind.
He calls to Tony, who ducks as Curtis grabs Mandy. She is
apprehended. Tony asks if Michelle knows that he's alive. Jack
calls CTU to tell Buchanan what has transpired. Buchanan says he
will find Michelle on her cell.

5:55 A.M.
Michelle is sitting in her car in the CTU parking lot when her
cell phone rings. It is Tony, who explains that the woman had
someone else wear his clothes. He says he's coming back to CTU to
see her. "I love you," he says. Michelle is in tears.

5:56 A.M.
Jack grabs Mandy by the throat and asks where Marwan is. He knows
she is a professional hitwoman and that they are running out of
time to torture her. Jack offers to grant her a Presidential
pardon for past and present crimes in return for Marwan's
location. "You are either gonna help me now, or I will kill you,"
he threatens. Mandy asks to see the deal.

5:57 A.M.
Bern is held in a warehouse by Chinese henchmen. Cheng shows Bern
the surveillance photo of him and demands to know who lead the
mission. Cheng offers to ship him to a labor camp in Siberia
without telling the U.S. government. There will be no chance of
rescue or escape.

5:59 A.M.
Bern finally relents and tells Cheng who commanded the raid.
"His name is Jack Bauer," he says.

Ticking clock.

6:00 A.M.
As Mandy is held captive, Jack calls Buchanan to find out about
the Presidential pardon.

6:01 A.M.
President Logan prepares to sign the pardon. Secret Service Agent
Pierce interrupts with a discovery. He has news footage from four
and a half years ago when an attempt was made on Palmer's life.
The woman they are about to pardon is the same person who tried
to slip a deadly virus to Palmer's hand. Although this will grant
her immunity for past crimes, Palmer urges Logan to sign the

6:03 A.M.
Mandy speaks on the phone with someone who confirms that her
paperwork is in order. Then she tells Jack that Marwan is at the
Global Center where a helicopter on the roof is leaving now to
take him to a ship. Jack readies the CTU chopper and has Mandy
kept at the site.

6:04 A.M.
Jack warns his team not to use lethal force, even in
self-defense. They need Marwan alive.

6:05 A.M.
Marwan and an associate go up to the roof of the Global Center.
He tries calling Mandy but she doesn't answer her phone. They
don't wait, and get into the chopper. Marwan senses that
something is wrong.

As Jack heads downtown, Edgar gives him the location of Marwan's
helicopter from satellite imagery.

6:06 A.M.
Jack's chopper comes up on top of the building. Marwan sees this,
and orders his pilot to go. They are blocked from takeoff by the
CTU helicopter directly above.

6:07 A.M.
Jack fires at Marwan's helicopter and hits the rotor engine.
Smoke starts to erupt and they are unable to fly. Marwan pulls
a digital device out of his pocket and fires two rounds into it.
The device lies in ruin on the floor.

6:08 A.M.
The CTU chopper lets the agents off onto the roof of the
building. Marwan flees. Jack, Curtis and another agent chase
after him into a parking garage. Marwan fires back, killing the
third agent and wounding Curtis.

6:09 A.M.

Jack hides under a car and shoots Marwan's ankle. Marwan goes
down and fires the remaining bullets in his chamber. He crawls to
an open wall in the building. Jack sprints toward him.

6:10 A.M.
Just as Marwan hurls himself over the side of the building, Jack
grabs his arm and holds him from falling. He tries to pull Marwan
up, demanding to know where the missile is. With his free hand,
Marwan draws a knife and slices Jack's hand. Jack winces in pain
but doesn't let go. As Jack's strength decreases, Marwan's hand
slides from his grasp. Marwan falls several stories down to his

6:11 A.M.
Ticking clock.

6:15 A.M.
President Logan yells at Palmer for the botched mission that
allowed Marwan to be killed. Palmer says that CTU is doing
everything they can to find the missile. Novick interrupts with
an urgent call from the acting Chinese Consul. From a videophone,
Su Ming tells Logan and Palmer that one of their agents has
confessed his direct involvement. Agent Bern reads a statement on
camera saying he raided the Consulate under orders from Jack. Su
wants Jack turned over to China to be tried under their laws.

6:17 A.M.
Logan is furious with Palmer for mishandling this mission. Novick
suggests handing Jack over, but Palmer deems that unacceptable.
Logan's security aide Walt Cummings questions whether Jack would
compromise national security if tortured. Palmer defeats that
notion. Cummings then wonders whether to kill Jack so that their
problems would be solved. The President refuses to consider this

6:19 A.M.
The agents on the scene find a damaged digital device in
Marwan's helicopter. It has some kind of tracking or navigation
device on it, and they uplink whatever is left to CTU.

6:20 A.M.
Jack speaks to Chloe and Edgar as they try to salvage the data on
Marwan's device. They come up with what appears to be a flight
path. The missile is heading west towards Los Angeles. Chloe
figures out a possible timeframe. Buchanan passes this on to the
Air Force, who has planes in place ready to find it.

6:21 A.M.
The F-18 jets over Los Angeles report no sign of the missile.
Meanwhile, Jack confirms that the nuclear warhead will only
detonate if it hits its target. Edgar asks whether it is possible
that the arming mechanism could be triggered if the missile is
shot down. Jack says that they have no other choice.

6:22 A.M.
An F-18 pilot spots the missile and fires. The target is shot
down. The staff at CTU cheers. Jack is relieved.

Ticking clock.

6:27 A.M.
Tony enters CTU and Michelle runs to his arms. She admits that
she didn't realize how much she loved him until she thought she
had lost him. Michelle feels guilty for not doing what Tony did
to save her. She was ready to give up his life for the sake of
the country. He says they both did the best they could, and now
it is over.

6:29 A.M.
Audrey is on the phone discussing the transport of Paul's body
when she sees Jack come in. He tells her that he wants to spend
the rest of his life with her. Audrey ends their relationship
because he belongs at CTU and she can't deal with his world. She
gives him one last kiss and walks away. Jack is stranded in her
wake, devastated.

6:31 A.M.
Palmer calls Jack to thank him for what he did for the country.
However, Bern's confession gave the Chinese proof that Jack led
the raid on the Consulate. Palmer believes the Chinese really
want Jack to implicate the American government once he is
imprisoned. Jack swears he would never do such a thing. Palmer
thinks this is unfair and he is ashamed for his part in it. He
promises to make it his life's purpose to bring Jack back to
U.S. soil. A Secret Service agent is on his way to CTU to arrest

6:33 A.M.
Cummings speaks to Secret Service Agent Dale Spaulding, who heads
to CTU. Cummings explains that, with Jack's high ranking, he
could leak a wealth of information about national security if the
Chinese torture him. Spaulding understands the insinuation, and
Cummings confirms that this is not coming on order from the
President. Any investigation into Jack's death will be brief and
superficial. Cummings does not notice that Novick has overheard
his entire conversation.

6:34 A.M.
Ticking clock.

6:39 A.M.
Palmer is troubled by what Novick tells him. He doesn't believe
that Cummings would go against the President's orders to not
murder Jack. Novick knows that Cummings has been doing Logan's
dirty work and Logan always looks the other way. Novick implores
Palmer to intervene.

6:40 A.M.
President Logan gloats in his victory. "You played a role," he
offers Palmer, who ignores that this is an insulting
understatement. Palmer informs him that Cummings plans to kill
Jack, but Logan dismisses this. Logan makes a crack about the
Palmer administration being plagued by paranoia and scandal,
which he hopes to avoid. Palmer realizes that his allegations are
falling on deaf ears.

6:42 A.M.
In the CTU locker room, Tony acknowledges to Jack that it isn't
fair for him to be forced to take the fall for the Chinese
Consulate mission. Palmer calls Jack's cell and warns him not to
turn himself in because the man sent to take him into custody has
orders to kill him. "Get out of there now," Palmer urges.

6:44 A.M.
Buchanan refuses to turn Jack over to Agent Spaulding until he is
debriefed. Buchanan calls Jack a hero, but Spaulding says he is
only following orders. Suddenly, an alarm sounds.

6:45 A.M.
Tony calls Buchanan with news that Jack broke away from him and
escaped. Tony ordered a lockdown and explains that Jack is
somewhere in Section C.

Ticking clock.

6:50 A.M.
Michelle briefs the team that Jack has disabled all the security
cameras. Chloe confirms that Jack is still in Section C. Tony
explains that Jack received a phone call and then cold-cocked him
in order to escape. Spaulding is frustrated, and wants to go
after Jack himself. Buchanan orders Spaulding to take Tony with
him to find Jack.

6:51 A.M.
Tony and Spaulding enter Section C, and Jack fires at them. Tony
calls out to Jack, who hides. Tony tells Spaulding that he is
going to try to bring Jack out on his own, daring Spaulding to
shoot him in the back if he tries to stop him. Tony puts his
weapon down and approaches. Yet Jack is lying on the ground with
a pool of blood at his head. Spaulding checks Jack's pulse and
confirms that Jack is dead. Tony accuses Spaulding of killing him
without cause. Buchanan, Michelle and Chloe come in and are
shocked. Tony lashes out at Spaulding in anger. Buchanan follows
Spaulding out.

6:53 A.M.
Michelle gives a syringe of epinephrine to Tony, who injects it
into Jack's heart. Chloe comments that Jack really looks dead.
When Jack doesn't respond to the shot, Tony panics. He starts
pumping furiously at Jack's chest. Suddenly, Jack gasps for air
and wakes up. Tony orders Chloe to intercept the local coroner so
that they can switch bodies. There won't be an autopsy because
the people responsible wanted Jack dead.

6:55 A.M.
Audrey stops Buchanan and wants to know why Jack would be turned
over to the Chinese. Buchanan solemnly tells her that Jack tried
to escape. Before he can say more, Audrey stops him. She can
figure out what happened and she is stunned. A tear falls down
her cheek.

6:57 A.M.
Tony drives Michelle in her car out of the CTU parking lot. Jack
hides in the backseat. They drop him off near a railroad track.
Tony has secured Jack a new identity to get him across the
border. Michelle hands him a clean phone with a scramble filter
that allows up to one minute of undetected talk. Michelle and
Tony are too sad to look at him. Jack gets out of the car with
a bag they have prepared, and he thanks them. He shakes Tony's
hand and smiles at Michelle.

6:58 A.M.
Jack hides behind some crates and dials Palmer. He thanks him for
saving his life. Palmer says that this might be the last time
they ever speak. "For all intents and purposes, Jack Bauer is
dead," Palmer says solemnly. "Mr. President, it's been an honor,"
Jack replies.

6:59 A.M.
As the sun rises, Jack puts on a pair of sunglasses and walks
along the railroad tracks. He steals away, unnoticed.

Ticking clock.
