24: Day 6 Prequel

An agent interrupts Jack with a call from Kim.

Jack goes in the building and picks up the phone. There is no
one there. Suddenly, a masked man comes up from behind and gags
Jack's mouth. Jack tries to fight off the other masked men, but
the chloroform in the gag makes him pass out. The men whisk him
into a room and shut the door.

A beaten and bloody Jack is dragged into a dark room. The men
remove their masks and reveal that they are Chinese. Their leader
is Cheng, the head of security from the Chinese Consulate who
threatened the American government to turn over Jack for his raid
on the consulate building eighteen months ago. "China has a long
memory," Cheng says. "Did you really think that we would forget?"
Jack wants them to kill him, but Cheng says he is too valuable to

Cheng has Jack kidnapped aboard a Chinese shipping boat. It is
already sailing the ocean.

7 Months Later

In a Chinese prison, Jack is being tortured with electric shocks.
Cheng approaches him, showing Jack photos of Hong and Li, and he
demands to know which one of them is working for the American
government. Jack does not say a word as he did not speak for

Back in his cell, Jack notices that his guard outside has been
shot. Two men enter his cell, and they identify themselves as
Americans. They are there to get Jack out.

The rescuers take Jack outside where they unmask a Toyota car.
The Chinese try to chase them, but the driver shakes them off

As they stop in the wilderness, Hong approaches them. One of
the men asks Jack if he recognizes him. As Jack smirks in a
confirmation, they are surrounded by Chinese, and Cheng steps
into the light. He thanks Jack for confirming their suspicion
and shoots Hong in the head. Jack is devastated. As he is
dragged back to his cell, Jack hears Cheng telling the fake
rescuers that the money will be wired to their Swiss bank

24: Day 6

6:00 A.M.
A newscast reports the terrorist bomb attacks in ten U.S. cities.
Evidence points to Islamic militants.

6:01 A.M.
On a Los Angeles street, a Middle-Eastern man is refused entry to
a bus because he looks suspicious. On that same bus is a young
man listening to a music player. The player has an extra wire
running to his bag. The man calmly presses a button, and the bus

6:02 A.M.
Special Advisor to the President Thomas Lennox debates National
Security Advisor Karen Hayes in the White House Oval Office over
the creation of detention facilities for locking up Muslims.
Lennox tries appealing to President Wayne Palmer that this has
legal precedent, but Wayne will not be swayed.

6:04 A.M.
Karen interrupts the discussion when she gets news on the attack
in Los Angeles. CTU suspects that Hamri Al-Assad is behind the
terrorism. Karen notes that her analysts believe his death will
stop the organization from attacking again. Lennox has no faith
in this plan, but Wayne ultimately declares that CTU must
assassinate Assad.

6:05 A.M.
At CTU, Milo Pressman asserts his seniority over the sarcastic
analyst Morris O'Brian. Chloe tells Morris to make an attempt to
fit in. He responds by grabbing her from behind. Chloe doesn't
turn down the attention, but she doesn't want their relationship
on display at work.

6:06 A.M.
Chloe tells her superior Nadia Yassir that she got a weird
military request from Homeland Security. Nadia confirms that
this is the assault on Assad. They will find him by using Jack
Bauer. Chloe is surprised when Nadia tells her that President
Palmer negotiated the release of Jack from a Chinese prison.
Nadia refuses to give Chloe any more information, but says
that Buchanan is meeting Jack at an airfield.

6:08 A.M.
A Hercules C-130 military transport lands at Ellis Airfield in
the darkness of the early morning. Buchanan and Curtis approach
the plane as Chinese soldiers escort a bearded and shackled Jack
to the tarmac. Cheng Zhi, the head of security from the Chinese
Consulate who kidnapped Jack twenty months ago, hands Buchanan
the papers for transfer.

6:09 A.M.
As the handcuffs are removed, Curtis notices that Jack's hands
have been badly burned. Curtis takes the silent Jack into the
nearby hangar. Cheng tells Buchanan that Jack has not spoken in
all the time he has been captive.

6:10 A.M.
Buchanan explains to Jack why he has been released. Abu Fayed
has agreed to give up his compatriot Assad in exchange for Jack.
Fayed wants revenge for what happened in Beirut. Jack finally
breaks his silence and asks about Audrey and Kim. Buchanan says
that neither of them knows he is back. "You keep it that way,"
Jack whispers.

6:13 A.M.
Curtis allows Jack to clean up. Jack looks in the mirror for the
first time and sees the scars on his body.

Clock ticks.

6:19 A.M.
Buchanan calls Karen and tells her that Jack is much worse than
he expected. They tenderly express how much they miss each other
before hanging up. They are married now.

6:20 A.M.
Chloe confronts Nadia about Jack's whereabouts because she
cannot reach Curtis or Buchanan. Chloe threatens to blackmail
her, and Nadia finally admits the truth about why Jack is being
turned over to Fayed for retribution. Fayed's brother bombed the
U.S. Embassy in Beirut in 1999. Jack captured him, and Fayed's
brother died during interrogation. Once they turn over Jack,
Fayed will have full access to CTU's surveillance so that
they cannot track him. Chloe is incredulous that President
Palmer would have authorized this.

6:23 A.M.
Morris sees that Chloe is upset. She tells him what is happening.

6:24 A.M.
Curtis and Buchanan drive the clean-shaven and newly dressed
Jack to the drop point. Wayne calls Jack and cannot find the
words to express his emotion. Jack stoically accepts the
President's apology.

6:25 A.M.
With Jack's fate hanging over his conscious, Wayne questions his
own ability to run the country. He wonders whether sacrificing
Jack is a mistake. Lennox strongly disagrees, and says that
Wayne's brother David would have made the same decision.

6:27 A.M.
Karen accosts Lennox of preparing detention centers for Muslims
even though it goes against the President's order. Lennox wants
to be ready with the centers because he is sure the President
will change his mind.

6:28 A.M.
Over the phone, Fayed instructs Buchanan to handcuff Jack at
a river access tunnel. Jack explains to Buchanan that he is
ready to give up his life if it is on his own terms.

6:30 A.M.
Clock ticks.

6:37 A.M.
Jillian and Ray Wallace watch the terrorist attack events unfold
on television in their Los Angeles home. They argue over whether
or not their son Scott should go to school. Scott comes in to
tell them that the FBI is arresting their neighbor Yusuf.

6:38 A.M.
The Wallaces look out the window as Yusuf's son Ahmed appeals
to the police that his father is innocent. A neighbor named
Stan chases Ahmed, who locks himself into his house with fear.
Scott wants to help his friend, so Ray goes to Ahmed's house.

6:40 A.M.
Stan breaks down Ahmed's door and enters the house. Ray
intercedes and is forced to threaten Stan, who leaves.
Ray offers Ahmed to stay at his house. Ahmed refuses,
but Ray won't take no for an answer.

6:41 A.M.
Buchanan calls Nadia at CTU and she lets him know the military is
ready to take out Assad.

Morris secretly shows Chloe a satellite feed that's not on the
government grid. They can look up the location where Buchanan
dropped off Jack.

6:42 A.M.
Fayed pulls up to Jack in the tunnel. "I've been waiting for
this for a long time," Fayed snarls. Fayed's men knock Jack
out and put him in the truck.

6:43 A.M.
Fayed receives a warning call from a computer tech named Sabir
who has intercepted a private satellite from a government
frequency scanning the tunnel. Fayed calls Nadia, and she
denies any such satellite. Fayed warns her that there will
be consequences.

6:44 A.M.
Milo checks the system and sees that the rogue satellite is
coming from Chloe's station. Nadia orders Chloe her and Morris
to quickly reposition it. Sabir confirms that it has been done.

Fayed threatens to not give CTU Assad's whereabouts because of
the deception. Nadia speaks to him in Arabic to try to appeal
to him but he hangs up.

6:45 A.M.
Buchanan enters CTU and yells at Chloe. He would fire her but he
cannot afford to lose the manpower. "We may have sacrificed Jack
for nothing," he sighs.

6:46 A.M.
Clock ticks.

6:52 A.M.
Karen calls Buchanan, and he is forced to tell her that Chloe's
actions may have broken the deal with Fayed. Karen is furious
with him, but then apologizes for lashing out.

6:53 A.M.
Jack is dragged into Fayed's secret warehouse. Sabir gets
word that Fayed's money has been transferred and that no
other satellites have been following them.

6:54 A.M.
Jack is brought into a torture room. He urges Fayed to call
CTU, but Fayed punches him repeatedly. The men hook Jack up
to a heart monitor. Fayed threatens to do to Jack what was
done to his brother. Fayed pierces the bundle of nerves on
Jack's shoulder with a knife. Jack takes the immense pain
calmly. Then Fayed splashes the wound with a liquid that
makes Jack scream in agony. His heartrate speeds up. Once
again, Jack implores Fayed to give CTU Assad's location.
Fayed says that Assad is a traitor who wants to compromise.
He tells Jack that CTU is about to kill the wrong man. Assad
isn't behind the terrorist threats. He came to America in order
to prevent Fayed from performing the attacks.

6:56 A.M.
Fayed stabs Jack in the back with something sharp, causing
Jack to keel over. "You will die for nothing," Fayed says.
Fayed calls CTU and tells Buchanan that he put a transponder
at Assad's location. As Fayed gives CTU the coordinates, Jack
memorizes the numbers. Buchanan has the military on call to
take out Assad.

6:57 A.M.
Morris consoles Chloe by explaining that Jack knows what it takes
to serve the greater good. Chloe cries on his shoulder.

6:58 A.M.
As he is about to cut off Jack's finger, Fayed is interrupted by
an urgent phone call from someone. It's Ahmed, who says that the
FBI took his father. Although Ahmed is conspiring with Fayed, his
father is innocent. Consoling Ahmed, Fayed says that his father
was meant to be sacrificed.

When the one man guarding him looks away, Jack rips off the heart
monitor with his teeth. The beeps go monotone to signal his heart
has stopped. The guard comes rushing over to fix the monitor and
Jack lunges his head and bites the man hard in the neck. Jack
spits out the flesh and the man passes out. Jack manages to
take the man's key and free his hands.

6:59 A.M.
Fayed instructs Ahmed over the phone to deliver the hidden
package. Fayed returns to the torture room to find Jack missing.
He sees an open door and has his men go look for him. Jack is
actually hiding below the floor under a grate.

Clock ticks.

7:00 A.M.
Fayed and Sabir go looking for Jack in the tunnels under the
river but they give up because they must focus on finishing their
mission. They don't see Jack, who is only a few yards away. Jack

7:02 A.M.
When Morris cannot locate Assad on the satellite, Milo remarks
that Jack might have died for nothing. This annoys Chloe.

7:03 A.M.
Jack breaks into a parked car that has a cell phone left inside.
He calls CTU and explains that Assad is not responsible for the
bombings. Buchanan cannot rescind a Presidential order to stop
the attack on Assad. He puts Jack through to the White House.
As he waits for the connection, Jack hotwires the car.

7:05 A.M.
As Wayne listens to Jack's plea, neither Karen nor Lennox is
convinced that Assad is innocent. Karen remarks that Jack's
ability to assess the situation is faulted by his current state.
Jack insists to Wayne that they capture Assad to find out what he
knows. Lennox encourages the President not to let his history
with Jack affect his judgment. Wayne continues with plans to
assassinate Assad.

7:07 A.M.
Jack uses the cell phone's GPS navigation to plug in the
coordinates that he memorized Fayed saying. This is Assad's
location. Jack  drives off.

7:08 A.M.
Ray Wallace gets nowhere trying to locate Ahmed's father in
the police department. Fayed calls Ahmed's cell, and he finds
out Ahmed doesn't have the package that he needs. Fayed orders
him to go retrieve it. Ahmed makes up an excuse to the Wallaces
and leaves.

7:09 A.M.
The CTU and White House teams watch the monitors as the Cobra
helicopters are en route to target Assad. Buchanan confirms that
Curtis has a squad who will be in place at the site.

7:10 A.M.
Jack arrives at Assad's safe house and sneaks inside the property
gate. He distracts a guard and knocks him out with some chopped
firewood. He takes the man's gun.

7:11 A.M.
Jack enters the house. Assad recognizes him and raises his
weapon. Jack explains that Fayed set him up and they are about
to be hit. Jack says that there is a transponder in the house,
but the guards say they already searched the premises. One of
the men has it on him and is betraying Assad.

7:13 A.M.
Jack puts up his hands and Assad orders his men to empty
their pockets. One named Omar does have the transponder.
Jack surrenders the gun to prove he is telling the truth.
Assad grabs Omar and runs out with Jack as the other two
men try to secure the computer files.

7:15 A.M.
Jack, Assad and Omar barely clear the house when it is slammed
by missiles. Buchanan reports to the President that the target
has been destroyed.

Clock ticks.

7:19 A.M.
Attorney Sandra Palmer is alarmed when the FBI demands personnel
records at her Washington office of the Islamic-American
Alliance. Sandra adamantly refuses to turn over anything without
a warrant. Frustrated, she calls her brother -- Wayne Palmer.

7:21 A.M.
Sandra tells Wayne that the search was unfounded. She suggests he
check out his aide Lennox, who she is convinced has been slowly
destroying civil protections. Wayne is quick to defend Lennox,
but agrees to look into the matter later.

7:23 A.M.
Walid Al-Rezani, the head of the I.A.A., kisses Sandra tenderly
and thanks her for keeping up the good fight.

7:24 A.M.
Buchanan reports to the White House that Assad's body has not
been found. Assad is still alive.

7:25 A.M.
Fayed arrives at another warehouse. A man named Nasir is being
fitted with a vest of C-4 explosives. He tells Fayed that he will
not fail. Fayed promises that Nasir's family will learn of his

7:26 A.M.
Clock ticks.

7:31 A.M.
Jack breaks into an abandoned house. He and Assad carry the
unconscious Omar into the empty premises and hide out. Assad
tells Jack that he has gotten his people and the governments
that support them to agree to a ceasefire with the West. Fayed
is trying to sabotage that. Jack finds some clothes left in the
house and changes.

7:32 A.M.
Chloe does an aerial frame enhancement of the satellite feed
before Assad's safe house exploded. She sees that Jack is the
one helping Assad flee. She shows Buchanan the image, and he
wants to keep it a secret. He knows that Jack must be right
and is using Assad to find Fayed. Buchanan has Chloe look
for new chatter on Fayed.

7:33 A.M.
Assad finds keys to a car parked in front of the house.
Jack tells him that they need to use CTU's resources.
Assad is distrustful of CTU and is determined to find
Fayed alone.

7:35 A.M.
Jack aggravates Omar's open wound but Omar claims to be unaware
where Fayed is. Suddenly, Jack stops. He is oddly reluctant to
inflict any more pain on the man. This uncharacteristically
disturbs him. He tells the puzzled Assad that he could see
it in Omar's eyes that he wasn't going to talk.

7:36 A.M.
Assad sticks his knife into Omar, who gives up that he knows
where Fayed's men are going to meet. After Omar gives him the
address, Assad kills him. Assad goes to leave but Jack is frozen.
"I don't know how to do this anymore," Jack whispers. "You'll
remember," Assad replies.

7:37 A.M.
Clock ticks.

7:41 A.M.
The FBI returns to the Washington I.A.A. office with a warrant.
As Walid takes the agents to uncover the files, Sandra grabs
an employee's computer and starts typing furiously. Sandra
informs the FBI agents that she has erased all the employee
files. Despite the fact that she is the President's sister,
Sandra and Walid are arrested for obstructing official
business. The agents impound every computer in the office.

7:44 A.M.
Ahmed chops a hole in the drywall of his house and unearths a
box that he sticks into his backpack. Stan, the angry neighbor,
enters the house and beats Ahmed senseless. Ahmed pulls a gun
from the backpack and shoots Stan twice, killing him.

7:45 A.M.
Scott Wallace runs across the street to help his friend
Ahmed. He arrives in the aftermath of the fight and tries
to call emergency because Ahmed is injured. Ahmed pulls his
gun on Scott and threatens him to follow his orders.

7:46 A.M.
Clock ticks.

7:50 A.M.
Jack and Assad pull up to the location that Omar supplied. Assad
spots Nasir and another man named Masheer. He can tell that they
are Fayed's men. One is wearing an explosive vest. Jack realizes
Fayed is setting up another bombing. Jack and Assad follow the
two men into the subway station.

7:52 A.M.
The bomber Nasir clutches the detonator in his right hand. The
second man is only the handler, who will leave once Nasir is on
the train. The handler Masheer will lead them to Fayed. As the
train pulls up, Jack instructs Assad to follow the handler. He
is going after the bomb.

7:53 A.M.
Jack boards the train with Nasir. Assad follows Masheer out of
the station. Masheer calls Fayed to let him know that Nasir will
martyr himself when the train arrives at Union Station. Masheer
gets in his car and drives off.

7:54 A.M.
The train ticket agent approaches Jack, who tells him that he is
a federal agent and that there is a suicide bomber on board. The
agent moves away quietly.

7:55 A.M.
Jack sees Nasir palm the detonator. He lunges for Nasir's hand
and wrenches it backwards. They struggle, and Nasir is knocked
toward the back door of the car. Nasir grabs the detonator.
Jack quickly kicks Nasir hard so that he crashes through the
back window of the train as the bomb explodes. The flames
shoot into the tunnel and the passengers are knocked back.
No one is seriously hurt. Jack slams on the emergency brake
and the train screeches to a stop. He runs out the back of
the car.

7:57 A.M.
Masheer calls Fayed from Union Station to report that there was
no explosion and that he can see a cloud of black smoke blocks
away. Fayed watches a news report of explosions in Baltimore and
Chicago. He is confident that their other attacks are going off
as planned.

Milo updates Buchanan that, besides the other two bombings that
just occurred, there was also a suicide bomber in Los Angeles.
Nadia gets word that a passenger identifying himself as Jack
Bauer prevented the bomb from killing innocent people. Buchanan
wants visual confirmation from security cameras that it was Jack.

7:58 A.M.
Karen notifies the President that CTU intercepted a cell call
between Fayed and the men orchestrating the bombings. Wayne
realizes that Jack was right.

7:59 A.M.
Jack emerges from the subway tunnel's emergency exit and gets
a call from Assad, who is following the handler. Jack orders
him to keep tailing the handler so that they can find Fayed.

Clock ticks.

8:00 A.M.
As he follows Fayed's handler, Assad picks up Jack. Fayed phones
the handler Masheer and orders him to drive to another location.

8:01 A.M.
Buchanan tells the assembled White House staff that Jack averted
the Los Angeles bombing. He was then spotted working with Assad.
Yet they have not heard from Jack since they neglected to heed
his warning about Fayed.

8:02 A.M.
Fayed calls the President, demanding that the U.S. release
the Palmdale "enemy combatants" within the hour. Wayne does
not trust him because he has reneged on his promises before.

8:04 A.M.
Since releasing the Palmdale prisoners is probably not Fayed's
end game, Lennox and Karen argue that they cannot negotiate with
Fayed. Wayne insists it's the only way to buy them time.

8:06 A.M.
As Masheer heads north out of the city, Jack senses that it
will be harder for them to follow without being noticed. They
will need to get CTU to track him on satellite. Assad refuses
to work with CTU because they attacked him, but Jack says it's
only because Fayed convinced them that he was the enemy. With
no other choice, Assad begrudgingly gives in to allowing CTU
to assist.

8:07 A.M.
When Milo orders him to vet the Palmdale list of prisoners,
Morris thinks his talents could be used more wisely. Chloe
interrupts their argument and tells Morris to grow up.

8:08 A.M.
Jack calls CTU to get Chloe to trace the handler on the
satellite. Because of the recent attacks' overloading the
satellites, Chloe figures it will take at least ten minutes
for them to reposition. Plus, there are no traffic cameras in
that area. Jack must follow the handler until the satellite is
on track. Buchanan directs Curtis to head towards them. Curtis
is surprised that they are now working with Assad.

8:09 A.M.
A businessman is getting into his car when Jack attacks him,
stealing the vehicle. Jack races to catch up with Masheer, who
is about to enter the freeway. Jack slams into Masheer's car.
He gets out and accuses him of bad driving. Assad pulls up and
claims to be a witness, defending Masheer. Jack pretends to be
angry at them for protecting their own kind. He says he doesn't
want to wait for the police to arrive. Jack peels out.

With Masheer's car totaled, Assad offers to drive Masheer to
wherever he has to go in Newhall. Masheer is in a hurry and
agrees to the lift. Assad discreetly dials Jack's phone and
puts it on mute.

8:12 A.M.
Jack and CTU are able to hear Assad's conversation with Masheer.
Masheer tells Assad he will guide him to Newhall. Buchanan
redirects Curtis there.

8:13 A.M.
Fayed gets word that there is increased activity over the
Palmdale area. His plan is working, but it will be too late
for the Americans to respond once the prisoners are released.

8:14 A.M.
Ahmed takes Scott back to the Wallace house at gunpoint. The
entire Wallace family is taken hostage. Ahmed forces Jillian
to treat his wounds. She encourages him to see a doctor, but he
doesn't have time. Unable to walk, Ahmed orders Ray to deliver
his package. Ahmed threatens to kill Jillian and Scott if the
police show up at the house.

8:17 A.M.
Clock ticks.

8:21 A.M.
Morris questions why Chloe took Milo's side over his. She thinks
he always wants to be fired from whatever job he is doing.

8:22 A.M.
Karen updates the President on Jack's alliance with Assad to find
Fayed. Wayne still wants to proceed with loading the prisoners at
Palmdale, per Fayed's demands. Unless Jack can get Fayed within
the hour, they have no other option.

8:23 A.M.
Assad comments out loud the name of an exit that he passes. Chloe
makes note on the satellite tracking.

8:24 A.M.
Jack pulls off and gets into Curtis's car as they follow Assad.
Curtis asks Jack if it bothers him that they must work with
Assad, a known terrorist. Jack doesn't know what to think
anymore. Jack notes that it isn't their call. "We'll see
about that," Curtis replies.

8:27 A.M.
Scott sneaks a knife into his pocket, but is unable to stab

Clock ticks.

8:32 A.M.
Over a hundred terrorist prisoners are lined up at the Palmdale
Military Prison. One of the prisoners is named Numair.

8:33 A.M.
Lennox informs Wayne that his sister was arrested because she
deleted personnel files requested by the FBI. Sandra is being
detained in a provisional detention facility.

8:34 A.M.
As they arrive at the detention facility, Sandra apologizes to
Walid because it was all her fault he was arrested.

8:35 A.M.
Wayne calls for Sandra, furious. He has ordered her release.
Sandra says she would rather defend civil liberties against his
Administration's violation of them. She demands Walid's release
instead and vows that there is nothing incriminating in those
files. Wayne will not do that, saying that Walid shouldn't worry
if he is truly innocent.

8:36 A.M.
Sandra demands to speak to Walid. The FBI agent won't let her
because Walid is being held under the revised enemy combatant
statute. "Is the law being completely thrown out the window?"
she asks before being escorted out.

8:37 A.M.
A man named Salim being held in detention refuses to cooperate
with the National Guardsmen corralling him, and Walid steps in to
assist the man. A Guardsman slugs Walid with a baton and sends
him off for interrogation. Salim looks at Walid in gratitude.

Clock ticks.

8:41 A.M.
As Assad drives in the town of Newhall, he questions Masheer on
who he is meeting. Masheer is cagey about his answers. Chloe gets
the address where Assad is dropping off Masheer and pulls up data
on all the buildings within a mile radius.

8:42 A.M.
Masheer gets out of the car, and Assad tells Jack that the coast
is clear. Despite Jack's insistence that they work with him,
Curtis treats Assad like a prisoner instead of a collaborator.
Curtis has his men take Assad into custody. Jack earnestly
promises Assad that he will take care of him.

8:44 A.M.
Chloe tracks Masheer to a storage warehouse. The TAC teams see
him open up a storage locker. There are crates with Czech writing
and ammunition. Jack radios Buchanan that Fayed isn't there, but
Buchanan wants to move in anyway. Jack thinks it's too risky.
Masheer sees an agent and fires. The TAC teams shoot back.
Masheer detonates a grenade, and the entire storage locker

8:46 A.M.
Jack lets Buchanan know that the suspect is dead, and that the
laptop he had in storage was probably damaged in the fire.
Buchanan quickly notifies the President that the suspect
committed suicide rather than be arrested. With Fayed not
captured, Wayne has no choice but to release the prisoners
at Palmdale.

8:47 A.M.
The Guardsmen load the Palmdale prisoners onto a plane according
to Fayed's demands.

Ray delivers Ahmed's package to a man at an electronics parts
store. The man opens it and sees bundles of cash. He says he
will need an extra $50,000 in order to get the component Ahmed
was purchasing. Panicked, Ray calls his house. Ahmed orders him
to do whatever it takes to get the item or else he will kill his

8:56 A.M.
Ray knocks the man over the head with a lamp, and the man reaches
for his gun. Ray fights him off and pounds the man's head on the
ground. Ray accidentally kills him.

8:57 A.M.
Chloe is able to recover the most recently accessed data file
on the laptop in the damaged storage facility. It is a wiring
schematic for an object that looks exactly like the component Ray
was sent to pick up. Chloe sends it to Jack. Assad recognizes it
as a nuclear detonator. Curtis lunges at Assad, furious that he
knew about this ahead of time. Jack must pull Curtis off of

8:58 A.M.
Assad says that there is a reference file at the bottom that
reads "Sovtel 3." Nadia knows that this is a Russian suitcase
nuke. She says that one had been missing and was suspected to
have gone to a scientist with terrorist ties named Hasan Numair.
Chloe uncovers an old surveillance photo of the man, and Assad
knows him as an acquaintance of Fayed. Chloe finds that Numair is
a terrorist being released from the Palmdale prison. Assad says
that Fayed's plan all along was to force the United States to
free Numair.

8:59 A.M.
Buchanan has Nadia warn the President that he is stopping the
Palmdale release. He notifies the Guardsman on duty to look for
Numair on the plane. The Guardsman cannot locate Numair among the

On an empty prisoner bus, another guard kills the driver and
finds Numair hiding in the back. "Hurry up," the guard tells
him. "Fayed is waiting for you." Numair runs out of the bus

Clock ticks.

9:00 A.M.
Neither the Palmdale officers of the satellite can find Numair in
the area near the prison. Buchanan is frustrated because Numair
is a nuclear engineer and can build a bomb.

9:02 A.M.
Milo asks Morris for help on the search, but Morris claims he is
doing a task for Chloe. Chloe denies assigning any work to him.
Milo tells Morris off and orders him to do what he is told.

9:04 A.M.
Karen lets the President know that a suitcase nuke might
potentially kill hundreds of thousands of people. "Get me
Jack Bauer," Wayne intones.

9:05 A.M.
Jack is with Assad and Curtis going over the wreckage at the
storage facility. Curtis makes it clear to Assad that he is
still the enemy. Wayne calls Jack and asks him to take charge
of the search for Fayed. Jack isn't sure if he is up to the
task, but has dutifully accepts the President's request.

9:06 A.M.
Jack pleads with Curtis to accept Assad as part of
the investigation because he is invaluable. Curtis
snidely questions what the Chinese did to Jack that
would affect his judgment. Assad interrupts with news
that a PDA was found in the blast site. It says that
the "visitor" arrived last week. Assad says that this
is a code for a nuclear weapon. He thinks Numair must

refuses. Ray threatens to destroy the component unless he knows
his family is safe. Ahmed will only release one of them, and he

Curtis is reluctant to have Assad accompany them on a tactical
mission, but he follows Jack's command.

9:22 A.M.
The President meets with an ambassador from a Middle East
country. While the ambassador is not one hundred percent sure,

peace. This corroborates Jack's claim. Karen wants to lock down
cooperation with Assad. Lennox is hesitant to form such
a partnership with a known terrorist.

9:24 A.M.
Wayne calls Jack and tells him he wants to make a formal
arrangement with Assad. Wayne speaks to Assad and offers him

who begs for his life.

9:41 A.M.
The TAC team raids the house and Ahmed shoots back. Ahmed is
about to fire at Jack when another agent shoots Ahmed. Jack calls
for the EMT because he needs Ahmed awake enough to tell him where

that he overheard some of the inmates repeat an Arabic phrase
he didn't understand. He thinks it has connections with the
terrorist attacks. Walid must convince Sandra to forget her
lawyer tendencies and pass on the phrase to the FBI. They
kiss goodbye.

9:50 A.M.
Jack gives Assad the pardon from the President. Assad wishes him
luck and shakes his hand.

9:51 A.M.
Curtis is angry that Assad has been given a pardon by the
United States government. Jack explains that it is up to
neither of them. Curtis seemingly accepts this.

9:52 A.M.
Jillian returns home, and Jack explains that his team will try to
save Ray. Chloe tells Jack that she found a connection between
Curtis and Assad. After Desert Storm, Assad's men ambushed
Curtis's squad and beheaded some of his soldiers.

9:53 A.M.
Jack finds Curtis outside with his gun held up to Assad's
forehead. Jack tells him to put down his weapon by order of the
President. Curtis refuses. Jack says that he gave Assad his word
that he would protect him. As Curtis keeps his gun trained, Jack
begs him to stop. "I can't let this animal live," Curtis says.
Jack shoots Curtis in the neck and the TAC members shuffle
Assad to safety.

at Curtis' death. Jack walks away in tears. He vomits and falls
to the ground.

9:56 A.M.
Buchanan calls Jack after hearing what happened and tries to
bolster his spirits. "Tell the President I'm sorry," Jack says.
"I can't do this anymore." Buchanan beseeches him to continue
with the mission because he is needed. Jack says he is done
and hangs up. He continues sobbing.

Buchanan remains pensive and a bit shaken by his conversation
with Jack. He gets word that Ahmed died of his wounds.

Milo gets word that all field agents in the area who were engaged
with hostiles were killed in the blast.

10:04 A.M.

that the CTU office was not affected. Buchanan cannot confirm
whether Fayed was killed in the blast or whether the other four
nukes are still at large.

10:06 A.M.
Chloe is overwhelmed when she finds out that Curtis is dead. She
tells Morris that Jack quit because he was forced to kill Curtis.

10:07 A.M.
Mass panic ensues on a street in Granada Hills. Fayed drives
in a van, telling a man named Darren McCarthy on the phone that
the bomb went off when the feds found his location. Both the
engineer and the trigger were destroyed in the blast. Fayed
offers McCarthy double the price to find him someone who can
replicate the trigger device for the remaining four warheads.

10:08 A.M.
Amid the fleeing people, Jack stands alone, silently looking at
the mushroom cloud. A man approaches him for help because his
helicopter crashed into a roof and there is someone stuck inside.
The man had no idea that a nuclear bomb went off.

10:09 A.M.
Jack runs to the crash site and climbs to the roof of the
building. The helicopter teeters on the edge. Jack opens the
chopper door and pulls the survivor out just before the craft
topples to the ground and explodes into flames.

10:11 A.M.
Jack phones Buchanan, who tells him that there are still four
more bombs. Jack asks to be picked up even though he intended to
quit. "Not after this," Jack says, looking at the mushroom cloud.

The White House compiles a list of countries that might be
funding Fayed. They all claim to disavow the attacks. An Admiral
advises the President to bomb all of these countries to send a
message. Wayne says they will only retaliate against the enemy.

Assad arrives at CTU. He pledges to Buchanan that he is not their
enemy today. He offers him his hand, but Buchanan does not accept

10:19 A.M.
Buchanan briefs Assad on the four other bombs still at large.
Assad had no idea that Fayed possessed nuclear firepower. He
had sent Fayed to meet with a Russian general a year ago about
weaponry, but nothing transacted. Chloe starts looking up the
name Dmitri Gredenko.

10:21 A.M.
Clock ticks.

10:25 A.M.
Morris compiles a list of Los Angeles people who conducted
business with Gredenko. One of them is Phillip Bauer, the
chairman of BXJ Technologies. This is Jack's father.

10:27 A.M.
Buchanan calls Jack to tell him about his father's link to
Gredenko. Although Jack hasn't spoken to his father in over
nine years, he wants to question him alone.

10:28 A.M.
At the Anacostia Facility, the FBI agents tell Sandra that they
will need to wire Walid so that they can pick up more terrorist
cel chatter from the inmates. Sandra is outraged because Walid
isn't trained for this.

10:29 A.M.
Walid approaches Salim in the prison yard and asks if he has
heard anything more about the attacks. Salim says nothing. The
FBI agents make a show of grabbing Walid. The other inmates
watch and listen as Walid is interrogated about his terrorist
activities. The agents quietly explain to Walid that they are
wiring him. He follows along as they pretend to rough him up.
They let him know that he is to say the FBI asked him about
Fayed. The agents give him a bruise under his eye for effect.

agents confirm that they have a clear signal from the wire.

10:31 A.M.
Jack phones his father's San Marino mansion and speaks to Sam,

well. "Where's Gray?" Jack asks.

10:32 A.M.
Liddy, the head of security at the Bauer mansion, overhears
Sam's conversation. Liddy phones Graem Bauer, Jack's brother, to
tell him that Jack is in Los Angles looking for their father.
Graem is the leader of the Bluetooth power broker conspirators
who were controlling President Logan. "Damnit, we should have
killed Jack when we had the chance instead of handing him over
to the Chinese," Graem says. "We tried," Liddy responds.

10:33 A.M.
Clock ticks.

10:38 A.M.

and Phillip attempted to get him out of China. He also says he
has no idea where their father is, and he promises to call back.

Graem's wife Marilyn is shocked that Jack is back in town. Graem
accuses her of still having feelings for Jack.

10:42 A.M.
The White House staffers argue over the wording in the

opportunity to act more aggressively. Wayne wants the message to
be more calming rather than coming off as a policy dictum.

10:43 A.M.
As McCarthy works the phone looking for a bomb expert, he picks
up his girlfriend Rita. She is eager to flee the city, but
McCarthy says that they have a change of plans and are staying

Detention Facility and they may have a lead on Fayed.

10:51 A.M.
As Salim defends Walid as "one of them" to his fellow
prisoners, Sandra argues with the FBI agent that Walid
should not be participating in this. The agent says that
Walid is doing the right thing and that the guards on the
inside know to protect him.

10:52 A.M.
Salim approaches Walid, who feigns reluctance to talk. Walid
finally admits that the guard confiscated the phone number of Abu
Fayed from him. Salim invites Walid to join the other inmates.

the topic.

10:56 A.M.
Jack slugs Graem and knocks him out. He ties Graem up in a chair.

idea where Phillip is. Jack is not swayed. He takes a plastic bag
and begins to suffocate his brother.

Clock ticks.

get Karen off his back so he can focus on his proposals for the

Nadia expresses her concern to Buchanan that the new internal
security mandate requires all personnel with Middle Eastern
backgrounds to succumb to new clearance restrictions. She will
now be hindered from working on all sensitive files when they
need her the most.

11:06 A.M.
At Graem's mansion, Jack threatens to suffocate his brother to
get the truth. Graem fakes crying that he doesn't know where
their father is. When Jack goes to use the plastic bag again,
Graem admits that Phillip went to see one of his employees named
Darren McCarthy. The Russian general gave their company BXJ
smaller nuclear weapons to dismantle. Graem had hired McCarthy
to handle it, but didn't check him out. McCarthy stole the nukes
and sold them to the terrorists. Graem and Phillip didn't report
it because they thought they could take care of the situation
privately. Phillip put together a security team and staked out
McCarthy in Simi Valley. Jack unties Graem and forces him to go

of the nuclear fallout and through the technology he is using to
track that fallout.

11:16 A.M.
As they drive to Simi, Graem accuses Jack of implicating the
family. Jack assures him that CTU's only interest is to stop
further bombing.

Jack briefs Buchanan on his family's involvement through
McCarthy. He still isn't sure if BXJ has any other links.
Graem notes Jack's lack of loyalty to their family. "If I
were you, I wouldn't talk about loyalty," Jack says pointedly.

11:17 A.M.
McCarthy works the phone to find someone who can reprogram
a nuclear trigger. His girlfriend Rita complains that she
doesn't feel safe and he gets annoyed. Rita softens with the

Fayed calls McCarthy, and learns that the search is taking
longer than expected.

11:19 A.M.
At Anacostia, Sandra watches as the FBI agent sends photos of the
detainees in Walid's circle to CTU.

Morris is prevented from cross-checking the Anacostia inmates
because he's waiting on a manifest from Nadia. Milo asks Nadia
why she hasn't sent it out yet, and she claims that she is
"backed up". Nadia doesn't want to tell him that her security
clearance has been altered.

11:20 A.M.

nuclear weapons still at large. One of the men, Heydar, smuggled
in a cell phone and has been in contact with the terrorists.

Sandra listens in, and the FBI agent explains that he will need
Walid to get the phone so they can place a trace. He wants Walid
to stay inside to keep talking to the inmates.

11:23 A.M.
Reed gives Lennox a paper with names on it. Lennox approaches
Karen and asks her to tender her resignation because she covered
up her husband's incompetence. Over a year ago, Fayed was held in
custody and Buchanan signed off on his release. Karen explains
that Fayed was not a prisoner at the time. Lennox points out that
the incident was covered up at Homeland Security, and he shows
her the paper with all the people willing to testify against her.
Karen is adamant that she did nothing illegal or improper, and
she threatens to uncover his secrets in return blackmail. Yet
Lennox has the proof in his hands and he again demands her

ground. When Heydar helps him up, Walid pick pockets the phone.

11:42 A.M.
The FBI agent gives Walid a number to dial so that CTU can trace
the phone. Chloe logs the phone's SIM card and the agent signals
Walid to return the phone. Sandra implores for Walid's release,
but the agent needs to find out what else these men know about
the bombs.

11:44 A.M.
Chloe looks up the log from Heydar's phone and finds that none
of the numbers are connected to Fayed. The phone's browser has
logged onto a terrorist website that had all the information. The
inmates are not actively involved with the bombings. Sandra
orders the FBI agent to get Walid out.

11:45 A.M.
In the yard, Heydar realizes his phone is gone and he points to
Walid. The other men grab Walid and find the cell phone. Heydar

11:55 A.M.
Jack chides Phillip for not alerting the authorities to BXJ's
involvement when the bombs went off. Phillip says he was only
trying to protect Graem from going to prison. Jack goes to call
CTU, and Phillip asks him to let them handle it themselves. Graem
blames Jack for never putting family first, like he did when Teri
was killed. This enrages Jack, and he goes to slug Graem. Phillip
gives in and says they will do it Jack's way and turn their
information in.

11:57 A.M.
Graem refuses to accept Phillip's decision. He gives a nod to
the other guards, who grab both Jack and Phillip at gunpoint.

Wayne watches news reports of the nuclear blast, affected by what
he is seeing. When Lennox comes in, Wayne is suspicious of his
involvement in Karen's resignation. Lennox suggests that Karen
quit because she knew she couldn't stop his new plan for the
Administration. Wayne is resistant to sign Lennox's executive
orders, knowing they will abuse power and civil liberties. Yet
Lennox makes a strong argument and Wayne despairingly tells him
to convene his cabinet.

12:03 P.M.
Lennox lets Reed know that they have succeeded and that the
President is ready to sign the order. "Getting rid of Karen was
distinctly unpleasant, but she left us no choice," Lennox says.

ever did was for Jack. Phillip only now realizes that he pushed
him away. After Jack left, Graem was all he had left.

12:08 P.M.
After arriving at a cement plant, Jack and Phillip are lead out
in handcuffs. Phillip offers the men double whatever Graem is
paying them, but they don't accept. Phillip refuses to get on
his knees at a freshly dug grave. With the men distracted, Jack
is able to wrestle one of their guns with his locked hands. He
shoots one man, and Phillip shoots the other one. Phillip grabs
the keys and releases the handcuffs.

12:09 P.M.

Although Phillip wants to go with him, Jack says he will need
to question Graem alone and do "whatever it takes to find out
what he knows".

12:18 P.M.
While Graem works feverishly on his laptop, he lies to Marilyn
about what's going on. Suddenly, the CTU teams raid the house.
Graem pulls out his gun, but he is surrounded. Jack and Graem
are locked in a standoff, but Graem gives up his weapon. Jack
has an agent upload all computer hard drives to CTU.

12:19 P.M.
Jack drags an angry Marilyn into another room. She doesn't
believe that Graem would try to have Jack and Phillip killed. He
tells her about Graem's involvement with the nuclear bombs. While
she believes that her husband is capable of such things, Marilyn
does not know about any of his dealings. Jack promises to look
after both her and Josh, but Marilyn only wants to leave. "I've
seen what happens when you try to protect people," she shouts.
Jack orders for Marilyn and Josh to be transported to CTU.

Outside the house, Marilyn sees Phillip and asks him if what
Jack said about Graem is true. She takes Phillip's silence as

leave. Chloe convinces him to stay and finish decrypting the
photo that was sent to Fayed.

12:31 P.M.
Jack checks in with Buchanan and learns that Fayed found an
engineer to detonate the nukes. Jack realizes his time is running
out, and he presses Graem to tell the truth. Burke prepares
a syringe of hyocine-pentothal to induce pain, but Graem still
claims that he doesn't know McCarthy's whereabouts. Graem is
injected with a small amount and winces in agony. Jack is
disturbed to see his brother go through this torture.

12:33 P.M.
Jack clutches Graem's head and begs him to give up what he knows
and forestall any more pain. When Graem offers nothing, Jack has
the levels of serum increased. Graem launches into a series of
spasms and Jack holds him tight for comfort.

12:34 P.M.
When Graem is still tight-lipped, Jack urges Burke to go even
higher with the IV. This prompts Graem to confess that he
arranged for the assassinations of David Palmer, Tony Almeida
and Michelle Dessler. He even arranged it so that Jack would
come out of hiding to take the fall. "Today wasn't the first
time I've tried to have you killed, Jack," Graem says with
spiteful pride. Jack reacts in heartbroken disbelief.

12:35 P.M.
Graem claims his actions were for his country, and he says that
the two of them are the same. "We are not the same!" Jack yells
in rage before throwing back Graem's chair. He charges Burke
at gunpoint to increase the serum to a deadly level and then
threatens to kill Graem. As Jack points his gun at Graem's
temple, he looks up and sees his father in the doorway. Jack
suddenly stops in his tracks. He has Burke shut down the IV

internet. Wayne's administration is detaining people who might be
able to help, but they are afraid to come forward because they
will be imprisoned or deported.

12:42 P.M.
Distracted, Morris is unable to make the image clearer. He
downloads an unlicensed hack to help further the task.

12:43 P.M.
Jack briefs Buchanan on what Graem disclosed. His brother
doesn't know where McCarthy is. Buchanan lets him know that
Morris is working on the image of the engineer to be used 
for the nukes. He sends a chopper to pick Jack up.

12:44 P.M.
Jack approaches his father, who is visibly devastated by what he
has witnessed. Jack consolingly says that he cannot blame himself
for Graem's choices. Yet Phillip is more upset at how the family
has treated Jack and the time lost between them. Jack asks
Phillip to return to CTU.

12:46 P.M.
Clock ticks.

12:50 P.M.
Morris gets the plug-in to work and the image begins to sharpen.
Since it will take a few minutes, he leaves it in Milo's hands so
that he can go tend to his brother. Chloe kisses Morris goodbye
as he walks out.

12:51 P.M.
From the airborne cabin of Air Force Two, Vice President Noah
Daniels congratulates Lennox about the plan he has pushed
through. "To be honest, I didn't think this President had the
stomach for the cure," Daniels growls.

12:52 P.M.
Lennox puts Daniels on speaker phone as Wayne enters the bunker
conference room. It is filled with generals, cabinet members and
advisors. Wayne explains to the group that Lennox's plan
sacrifices rights and freedoms granted by the Constitution. To
implement it would be a mistake. Lennox argues his case, but
Wayne is insistent that the American Muslim community is the
country's best line of defense. Daniels suggests the President
hear from some other sources, but Wayne stands firmly by his

12:54 P.M.
As the image materializes, everyone at CTU is shocked when
Morris's face and resume is revealed. Buchanan orders an APB on
Morris's car and he tells Jack what has occurred.

Chloe reaches Morris on his cell, and patches Jack and Buchanan
through. They tell him that his brother's illness was a setup and
that he was the engineer McCarthy was looking for. Morris is
shocked and goes to turn his car around. Suddenly, McCarthy pulls
alongside Morris and fires at his windshield. CTU can hear the
gunshots and McCarthy ordering Morris out of the car. Buchanan
rouses a shocked Chloe to pull up the satellite so they can find

Rita helps handcuff Morris inside their car as McCarthy calls
Fayed to tell him he is on his way. McCarthy makes it clear that
he is only delivering Morris. Fayed will have to make him

Jack boards the helicopter.

At the mansion, Burke allows Phillip to speak to Graem
in private. Graem is proud of himself for taking whatever
Jack did to him and not revealing Phillip's involvement
in the plot. He assures his father that he won't tell Jack
anything, no matter how much worse the interrogation gets.
They successfully convinced Jack that Phillip was innocent.
Their plan is for Graem to take the rap and for Phillip to
get him released in time. "The company lives on," Graem says.

12:58 P.M.
Despite Graem's confidence, Phillip isn't so sure that his
son will hold firm. Graem tells Phillip that he loves him,
and Phillip returns the compliment. Then Phillip apologizes
and injects Graem's IV with a full dose of hyocine-pentothal.
As Graem convulses, Phillip covers his mouth so no sound can
escape. Graem's body goes limp, and Phillip kisses him on the

12:59 P.M.
Phillip bellows that his son has had a seizure. Burke and the
other agents try to revive Graem. "If you people kill my son,
I swear you're gonna regret it for the rest of your life,"
Phillip threatens.

Clock ticks.

1:00 P.M.
As Jack choppers to look for Morris, Chloe has trouble helping
him because she cannot get the satellite to respond. Milo sees
that she is distraught over Morris, and it is making her slip up.

1:01 P.M.
Buchanan lets Jack know that Graem has died from cardiac arrest,
which was most likely caused by the interrogation. Jack asks him
to break the news to Marilyn when she arrives at CTU.

1:02 P.M.
Milo alerts Buchanan that Chloe's mind is on Morris instead of
her job. Despite her uncharacteristic frustration, Chloe assures
them that she is fine. Buchanan relieves her of her post and Milo
helps Jack track Morris. Chloe sulks.

As Rita drives, Morris tells McCarthy that CTU is already on
their tail.

Jack loses sight of them when Rita hides the car under a freeway
overpass. He orders the helicopter pilot to put him down on the

McCarthy goes to hotwire another car, leaving Morris alone with
Rita. He brings her up to speed that McCarthy plans to use him to
trigger the other nuclear bombs. CTU doesn't know that she even
exists, so she could walk away free if she lets Morris go.

1:08 P.M.
The chopper touches down on an eighteen wheeler truck and Jack
gets out on foot.

1:09 P.M.
McCarthy comes back to unlock Morris and put him in the stolen
car. Rita questions him about his involvement in the nuclear
threat. "What this is about, is about seven million dollars,"
he answers.

Jack comes upon McCarthy's car but it is empty. CTU cannot find
which vehicle they have escaped in. The TAC team arrives and
picks up Jack.

1:10 P.M.
Fayed calls McCarthy and tells him where to meet. McCarthy pulls
over to plug the address into the GPS. Suddenly, Rita shoots him
dead. She pushes McCarthy's body out of the car and takes over
the wheel. Morris's relief is only short-lived because Rita plans
to turn him over to Fayed and take the money herself. Since CTU
doesn't know she exists, she is in the clear.

1:11 P.M.
Clock ticks.

1:16 P.M.
Wayne Palmer asks an unhappy Lennox if he will still support his
policies even though he doesn't believe in them. Before Lennox
can answer, the President gets word that Assad has landed at
Andrews Air Force Base.

Feeling spurned, Lennox tells Reed that he intends to resign
because he no longer has influence over the Administration.
Lennox isn't so sure that Wayne has the courage to lead the

1:19 P.M.
Reed secretly dials a man named Carson on Capitol Hill and
informs him that Lennox's proposals were rejected by the
President. Their "plan" is dependent on Reed having access
to the White House, and Lennox's resignation will deter that.
Reed wants to let Lennox in on the plan in hopes that he will
reconsider quitting.

1:21 P.M.
Marilyn and Josh arrive at CTU. Buchanan tells her that Graem
suffered a fatal heart attack, and she assumes that it was
because of something Jack did.

1:22 P.M.
Jack finds McCarthy's body. A witness said he was shot
by a female who was accompanied by a man fitting Morris's
description. The phone on McCarthy's body had a call that
came in from an encrypted ID. Jack sends the data to CTU
for tracing.

1:23 P.M.
Rita drags Morris into Fayed's building and explains to the
terrorists that she works for McCarthy. Morris points out that
he is not an engineer, but Fayed knows that he works for CTU.
Fayed won't give Rita the money until Morris detonates the
nuclear bombs. Morris courageously refuses to do so, and
Fayed has him beaten up.

1:25 P.M.
Clock ticks.

1:29 P.M.
Milo is having difficulty tracing the call made to McCarthy's
phone. Chloe offers to try, apologizing for her earlier behavior.
She comes up with an address of the call's origination. Jack
heads there with the TAC teams. Because of Chloe's actions,
Buchanan agrees to allow her back to work.

1:31 P.M.
Assad is escorted into the White House bunker. If Fayed detonates
any more bombs then Wayne will not sign a peace agreement. Wayne
wants Assad to make a public address asking Islamic communities
worldwide for help bringing down Fayed. Assad is hesitant because
his people will assume he has become an American puppet. Wayne
will not back down.

1:33 P.M.
Jack arrives at Fayed's building, where TAC teams are in place.

1:34 P.M.
Buchanan has satellite position of the building, but they don't
know which apartment Fayed is in. Jack asks Chloe to trigger the
building's fire alarm.

1:35 P.M.
Fayed's men torture Morris and they stop when the fire alarm
sounds. Residents exit the building. Fayed knows that CTU has
found him.

1:36 P.M.
With time running out, Fayed plunges a power drill bit into
Morris's shoulder. Morris screams in pain. Fayed threatens
to do him more harm unless he helps them rig the trigger.

1:37 P.M.
Rita becomes scared and says she will give up the money if they
let her go. Fayed shoots her, and she falls dead. Morris says he
will do whatever Fayed wants.

1:38 P.M.
Clock ticks.

1:43 P.M.
Lennox expresses his frustration to Reed about Wayne using Assad
in a televised speech. This will convey that America has declared
that terrorism works. Reed brings up the idea that there may be
others who have the same notions as Lennox and would want to see
the Vice President lead instead of Wayne. Lennox is appalled and
wants to know who he is talking about. Reed becomes evasive.
Although he disagrees with Wayne's policies, Lennox does not
advocate the President's removal. He notes that Reed's
intimations are grounds for treason. Reed doesn't say
anything further.

1:45 P.M.
With the apartment residents evacuated, CTU is able to
trace infrared on who is left in the building. Chloe
and Milo determine the apartment number.

1:46 P.M.
As Fayed breathes down his neck, Morris works feverishly on the
computer program.

1:47 P.M.
Jack and the TAC teams quietly raid the building.

1:48 P.M.
Morris completes his task and Fayed orders him to arm one of the
bombs. After it works, Fayed instructs his men to kill Morris.

1:49 P.M.
Suddenly, an explosion rips through the apartment. Jack and the
CTU teams engage in gunfire with Fayed's men, taking them down.
Fayed escapes unnoticed. None of the agents outside saw him

1:50 P.M.
Jack finds the nuclear weapon armed. He radios to CTU.

Clock ticks.

1:55 P.M.
While reading the schematics on her screen, Chloe guides Jack
in disarming the bomb. The agents find Fayed's escape route in
a crawl space cut out of a wall. They think Fayed slipped out
onto a medical helicopter that was spotted taking off nearby.

1:56 P.M.
Jack gingerly follows Chloe's instructions with shaking hands.
He deactivates it with a sigh of relief.

1:58 P.M.
Morris tells Jack that the reprogramming device he was forced
to build will allow Fayed to detonate the other bombs. Jack is
furious that Morris made the device work.

1:59 P.M.
Lennox gets an alert over the wire that Fayed still has the
capability to arm the remaining suitcase nukes. He calls
Reed. "That talk we were having in my office, I don't think
I misunderstood you," Lennox says. Reed warns him not to
speak over the phone until he has a secured location.
Lennox hangs up, unsure of the dark road he is about
to undertake.

Clock ticks.

2:00 P.M.
Fayed lands his helicopter at the L.A. river basin where his team
is waiting with the three remaining suitcase nukes. Fayed phones
Dmitri Gredenko, the former Russian general who had contracted
BXJ to decommission the bombs. Gredenko is annoyed that they are
now down to only three bombs, but he has the delivery systems en

2:03 P.M.
Buchanan gathers his staff for updates. Milo was able to restore
a fragment of an email correspondence between Fayed and Gredenko.
They surmise that Gredenko has colluded with Fayed because he has
an interest in harming America. They assume he is already in Los

2:05 P.M.
Morris is brought into CTU. Chloe rushes to him, but he is
embarrassed and refuses to respond.

Jack enters CTU for the first time in almost two years. Faces he
doesn't recognize stare back at him. Buchanan lets him know that
they believe that Gredenko is aiding Fayed.

2:06 P.M.
Chloe thanks Jack for saving Morris's life. "I'm really glad
Fayed didn't kill you this morning," she says.

2:07 P.M.
Phillip is surreptitiously erasing messages on Graem's cell
phone in the CTU morgue. Jack comes in, observing his father's
mourning. "I didn't mean for this to happen," Jack says sadly,
but Phillip acts like he doesn't believe him. Jack gets down to
business and asks what he knows about Gredenko. Phillip cannot
hide his anger and claims he had no involvement in Graem's work.
Yet he offers to reach out to some of his other company
executives for information.

2:10 P.M.
Chloe goes to check in on Morris, trying to find words of
comfort. He is cold towards her, blaming himself for the other
bombs that Fayed will surely set off.

2:11 P.M.
Phillip ducks into a corner to call Liddy, his head of security.
Phillip orders Liddy to kill Gredenko before CTU gets to him.
Gredenko could expose Phillip's involvement.

2:12 P.M.
Buchanan shows Jack the toxicology reports on Graem. The coronary
was caused by hyocine-pentothal used in the interrogation. The
field reports show that Jack exceeded protocols, even after Burke
warned him about the dangerous levels of serum. Jack explains
that he might have killed his brother but then stopped when he
saw Phillip. He swears that he never set out to harm Graem.
Buchanan suggests covering up Burke's report, but Jack won't
let him lie. "I killed my brother," he says. "Whatever the
consequences are, I accept them."

Clock ticks.

2:20 P.M.
Wayne makes notes to Assad's speech. He is interrupted by a call
from Vice President Daniels, who is disappointed that Lennox's
plan was turned down. The majority of the Cabinet thinks that
this is a mistake. Daniels will not support Wayne on his policies
regarding Assad and Fayed.

2:22 P.M.
Assad warns Wayne that, by going alone, he might be alienating
his constituents.

2:23 P.M.
Lennox furtively meets Reed in the boiler room of the bunker
because it is not monitored. Reed says that he and others like
him will not stand by while Wayne's leadership causes more
American deaths. Definitive action will remove the President.
Lennox knows that this is necessary, but he is torn that the
situation has resorted to this. Reed refuses to let on who else
is involved or what will happen, because it allows them to retain
plausible deniability. Reed asks him for Wayne's itinerary
regarding the Assad televised speech, and Lennox agrees to get

Marilyn tells Jack that she doesn't blame him for her husband's
death, even if it was caused by the interrogation. She wanted to
leave Graem, but he had threatened to take her son away.

2:33 P.M.
When Jack asks about Gredenko, Marilyn admits that she once
followed Graem to a house where there were men with Russian
accents. She doesn't remember where it was, but she might be
able to retrace the route.

2:35 P.M.
Jack tells Buchanan that he may have a lead on Gredenko. Phillip,
who has been watching Jack, approaches Marilyn and asks what Jack
wanted from her. Phillip brings up the name Gredenko, claiming
that Jack questioned him about the man too. Marilyn says she
knows nothing but followed Graem to a group of Russians in
a house in West Los Angeles. Jack wants to take her there,
so she asks Phillip to stay with Josh.

2:36 P.M.
Buchanan sends Milo with Jack in case there are any hard drives
with intelligence on the site.

2:37 P.M.
Phillip wants to bring Josh back to his house for a "friendly

Angeles. Liddy will text him the address.

2:43 P.M.
Chloe asks Morris for help running tactical, but he accuses her
of coming to him out of pity. "I know you've been through a lot
today, but you're really starting to piss me off," Chloe grumbles
before slapping him. She angrily urges him to stop feeling sorry
for himself and get back to work.

2:44 P.M.
As they drive to West Los Angeles, Marilyn confesses to Jack
that she thought about him while he was held captive in China.
She believes that Phillip drove him away, forcing him to join
the military all those years ago. Marilyn asks if she was
another reason for his leaving, and Jack says no.

2:45 P.M.
Phillip phones Marilyn but doesn't want her to let on to Jack
that it's him. He tells her that he murdered Graem, and that
unless she does what she is told, he will kill Josh as well.
Marilyn is stunned. Phillip gives her an address to lead Jack
to. She terrifyingly agrees.

2:46 P.M.
Phillip lies to Josh about the roads being closed. He will take
him to a hotel for the night.

2:47 P.M.
Marilyn sees the house where Graem had met with the Russians, but
she says nothing to Jack.

2:48 P.M.
In that house, Gredenko and his men program targets on a United
States map. He comments that his country was afraid to attack
America with nuclear weapons during the cold war but that he will
enact that revenge. "And the Arabs will take all the blame," he

tells Buchanan that she can use Morris's help.

2:54 P.M.
As they enter the hotel, Josh comments to his grandfather that
he knows he's being lied to about his father's death. He asks
whether Graem had something to do with the nuclear attack, but
Phillip doesn't give him any answers.

2:55 P.M.
Marilyn points to the house at the address given by Phillip. Jack
diverts all teams there, including Milo who is in a follow van.

2:56 P.M.
As Jack prepares the TAC teams into position, Marilyn attempts to
talk to him. Jack is preoccupied with the mission.

2:57 P.M.
Jack and the TAC teams raid the house. It is empty. Jack spots
the blinking red lights of a C4 explosive. He yells a warning and
jumps out the window as the house explodes into a fireball.

2:58 P.M.
Milo pulls Marilyn into the van for safety. He realizes they are
about to be attacked and peels out. Phillip's henchmen follow

2:59 P.M.
The men blow out the wheels of the van, sending it crashing
into a brick wall. They fire at the van as Milo detonates hand
grenades inside. He grabs a gun and runs off with Marilyn as
the van explodes. The men start chasing after them.

Jack wakes up amid the rubble and calls to his teams on the
radio. No one responds.

As Phillip's henchmen pursue, Milo and Marilyn are on the run.
They hide behind a garbage dumpster.

3:03 P.M.
One of Phillip's men named Hacker calls him with news that they
took out the CTU team. Phillip asks if Jack is dead, and Hacker
says yes. Phillip reacts with a slight wave of remorse. "It had
to be done," he sighs. Phillip needs Marilyn to be kept alive so
that she can lead him to Gredenko.

3:05 P.M.
When the ambush team spots him, Milo orders Marilyn to run while
he shoots back at them. Marilyn freezes amid the gunfire, and
Milo is hit in the arm. Hacker takes Marilyn. As the other two
are about to kill Milo, Jack appears and shoots them down. He
disarms Hacker and has Milo hold him at gunpoint.

3:07 P.M.
Jack grabs Marilyn by the throat and wants to know if she helped
Gredenko set him up. Through tears, Marilyn explains that these
are Phillip's men and that he threatened to kill Josh. Jack is
stunned, and the news hits him hard.

3:08 P.M.
When Jack promises to help get Josh back, Marilyn reveals where
Gredenko really is. Jack has Buchanan send teams there, but he
has to do something else. Jack refuses to give Buchanan any more
information, but says that it is "personal".

Morris stares into space rather than doing any work. Chloe
becomes worried, but he refuses to take her advice and talk to
either the staff psychologist or his sponsor. Nadia informs
them that Milo single-handedly fended off the hostiles until
Jack arrived. Morris snidely remarks to Nadia that this only
rubs salt in his wounds because he acted like a coward. Chloe
offers to relieve him of his duties, but Morris claims he will
be fine after he takes a walk.

3:15 P.M.
Jack needs Marilyn to force Phillip to turn over Josh before she
leads him to Gredenko.

3:16 P.M.
In a hotel room near the airport, Phillip tells Josh that his
father was proud of him. Josh is too upset to talk about it.

3:18 P.M.
Jack has Hacker relay to Phillip that he has Marilyn in custody.
She is refusing to tell him about Gredenko until she sees her
son. Marilyn gets on the phone with Phillip and holds firm in her
demand. Phillip threatens to kill Josh, and Josh overhears this
from the other room. Phillip gives Hacker his location, and Jack
gets the address.

3:20 P.M.

Wayne asks Lennox to read over Assad's speech. He says that he
still values his judgment. Lennox complies.

3:28 P.M.
Gredenko urges his men to work quickly to reposition the target

Soviet Union.

3:29 P.M.
Morris buys a pint of whiskey and a box of breath mints at
a liquor store. He goes outside and takes a giant slug of the
liquor, then immediately forces himself to regurgitate it. Chloe

3:37 P.M.
Wayne commends Lennox on his suggestions to change the speech and
asks him to be there when Assad delivers it.

3:38 P.M.
Lennox goes back to the boiler room and assures Reed that their
man's clearance is in the works. Reed leaves. Lennox calls the
ranking Secret Service agent and says to meet him urgently.
Suddenly, Reed hits Lennox over the head with a flashlight
because of his deceit. "Nothing justifies the killing of a
President," Lennox says in his dazed state and implores Reed
to cancel the plan. Reed whacks him again on the head and
Lennox passes out. Reed calls the Secret Service to cancel
Lennox's request.

3:39 P.M.
The CTU team assembles in the situation room. Morris quietly
slips into his seat. Chloe lies about needing to fix something
and she makes Morris come with her outside the room.

3:40 P.M.

3:43 P.M.
Jack has Hacker lead the way into Phillip's hotel suite,
but Phillip and Josh are gone. The room phone rings and

Jack leaves Marilyn in the stairwell of the second building.
She touches his face tenderly and thanks him.

Josh reunites with his mother in the stairwell and they run out
of the building.

3:55 P.M.
Phillip reveals that Gredenko blackmailed him once he found out
about Phillip's involvement in the assassination of David Palmer.
It was Gredenko who forced him to keep some of the nuclear
suitcase bombs. Phillip didn't know that Gredenko sold the
bombs to Fayed until one was detonated in Valencia.

3:57 P.M.
Phillip says he has been looking for Gredenko so that he could
stop Fayed. "I'm a patriot, Jack," he says. "I never wanted any
harm to come to this country." Yet Jack is furious that Phillip
let all of this happen to cover up his own mistakes. Phillip
notes that this situation would never have escalated had Jack
worked for the family. Since CTU didn't find Gredenko,
condemning Phillip solved nothing.

3:58 P.M.
Phillip has Jack get on his knees. He cocks a round in his gun
and raises it. Jack makes a final confession to his father. He
never wanted him to feel like he turned his back on him or the
family. "I just had to go my own way," he says. Jack apologizes
to Phillip and braces himself for death. Nothing happens. Jack
turns around and Phillip is gone.

3:59 P.M.
Jack runs out to the roof and sees a cell phone left on the
ledge. There's a text message instructing Jack to call a number.
He dials it and identifies himself. The person on the other end

exhausted all his options to find Gredenko. Logan wants to
meet because he can help.

Gredenko is annoyed that he has to deal with Fayed's kind. "The
Arabs and the West can destroy each other," he says hopefully.

4:03 P.M.
When the ambassador arrives at the bunker, Wayne looks for the
missing Lennox. Wayne introduces Assad to the ambassador, who is
vocal in his displeasure. Wayne explains that he has no other
choice but to work with Assad in finding the remaining three
nukes. The ambassador acknowledges that Assad's speech might
work, but is insulted that the Americans would threaten his
country in order to coerce its prime minister to issue a public
statement of support.

4:06 P.M.
Morris has trouble getting information from the phone landline in
the house where Gredenko was hiding.

4:07 P.M.
Jack calls Buchanan and tells him about Logan's offer. Logan is

learns that Logan brokered a private deal after his ousting from
office that would hide the fact that he was aligned with
terrorists or involved in David Palmer's death.

4:08 P.M.
Outside the hotel, Jack finds Marilyn and Josh and asks them to
go back to CTU for their safety because Phillip has escaped. Jack
promises Josh that he will explain the truth about everything
that has happened. Jack and Marilyn share a compassionate moment.

4:09 P.M.
Reed escorts Bruce Carson through security at the White House
bunker. The agent at the metal detector checks a cassette
recorder in Carson's briefcase. He plays back a voice recording
and it passes as legitimate.

4:10 P.M.
Reed whispers to Carson that Lennox needed to be restrained
because he tried to warn Secret Service about their plot. Reed
doesn't know whether Lennox changed his mind or was against them
the whole time.

4:11 P.M.
Reed takes Carson to the boiler room where Lennox is taped to
a pole. Carson wants to "take care" of Lennox and make it look

argues that Lennox could be convinced once Vice President Daniels
takes over from Wayne.

4:12 P.M.
Lennox watches in horror as Carson starts to assemble a bomb in
order to frame Assad for the assassination of the President.

Clock ticks.

4:17 P.M.
Reed nervously sends emails from Lennox's computer. While
slipping out, he bumps into the President's assistant. She
is looking for Lennox. Reed lies about his whereabouts.

4:18 P.M.
Chloe notices that Morris has become frustrated in his task.
She points out a mistake. Morris assures her that he did call
his sponsor, but Chloe doesn't think he's any better.

4:19 P.M.
When Morris is away from his desk, Chloe looks up the number of
the AA sponsor named Jeannie on his PDA. Nadia comes looking for
Morris and questions Chloe about his ability to be back at work.
Chloe says they need all the manpower they can get.

Chloe leaves a message for the female sponsor to call her back.

4:20 P.M.
Jack arrives by chopper at Logan's retreat. He casts a steely eye
over the former President and dismisses Logan's small talk. Based
on intelligence updates and news from sources, Logan knows that
Gredenko supplied five nukes and that three are still at large.
Jack assumes that Logan is out for a plea bargain, but Logan
insists that he has reconnected with his faith and does not
seek a pardon. He only wants to help.

4:22 P.M.
Logan knows that the Russian Consul General Anatoly Markov is
Gredenko's liaison, despite his lies to CTU about not being
involved. Logan says that Markov is protected, and he is the
only one who can go through back channels and speak to the man
personally because Markov owes him. Markov was involved in the
conspiracy and Logan never gave him up. Although Jack doesn't
trust Logan, he has no other choice.

4:23 P.M.
Clock ticks.

4:28 P.M.
Jack calls Wayne and explains the Logan situation. He needs
an executive order granting Logan temporary furlough. Wayne
is leery of Logan, who was behind the execution of his brother.
Yet Jack thinks that Logan only wants some kind of personal
redemption and he promises to never let Logan out of his sight.

4:29 P.M.
Jack hands Logan the phone. Logan tells Wayne that he has a
prior relationship with Markov that they can exploit. Plus,
he has experience dealing with criminals like Markov. Wayne
threatens to hunt him down if he uses this as an opportunity
to escape custody. Wayne promises to never forgive him but
reluctantly grants the furlough.

4:31 P.M.
Two flatbeds arrive at the airplane graveyard, and Gredenko
inspects the cargo. They are U.S. military aerial drones that
will be used to drop the bombs.

4:32 P.M.
Buchanan briefs his team on Markov and removes Morris from taking
lead on decoding Russian consulate intelligence. Morris defends
himself to the entire group, but Nadia disagrees. Buchanan
overrules her and allows Morris to continue working at CTU.

4:33 P.M.
In the boiler room, Lennox struggles with his binds but cannot
break free. Reed comes in to check on Carson. It's just started
to hit him that they are about to kill the President.

4:34 P.M.
Clock ticks.

4:39 P.M.
Nadia shows Chloe a mistake that Morris made. Chloe says she
told him to turn in his report incomplete. Nadia accuses her
of covering for him, but Chloe claims she isn't.

4:40 P.M.
Chloe approaches Morris and asks him once again if he's been
drinking. She has the report that Nadia gave her, but Morris
dismisses any idea that he screwed up. He intended to fill
in the rest of the report, and he charges that Nadia is only
trying to prove that she is right about him.

4:41 P.M.
Alone in his bedroom, Logan prepares to change into a proper
suit. He pulls out a patriotic flag lapel pin, and sees a photo
of him and Martha from happier times. Logan pumps himself up by
quoting the Bible.

4:42 P.M.
Jack, who has changed into a suit to look like a Secret Service
agent, checks in with Buchanan. CTU has no red flags on Markov,
and Buchanan wonders if Logan is being sincere. Jack sees that
Logan's Bible has highlighted passages and tells Buchanan that
they have no other choice.

4:43 P.M.
Chloe gets a return call from Morris's sponsor Jeannie.
The woman says she hasn't spoken to Morris in years.

4:44 P.M.
Chloe goes looking for Morris. She storms into the men's
restroom and Morris emerges from one of the stalls. Chloe
tells him that she spoke to Jeannie. Morris becomes incensed.
He explains that he has a new sponsor and that he did call him.
Chloe is embarrassed and apologizes. After she leaves, Morris
pulls out a bottle of whiskey from his waistband. He considers
taking a drink. Instead, he pours it down the drain.

4:45 P.M.
Wayne signs the executive order for Logan's release. He asks
after Lennox because he wants him there for Assad's speech.
Wayne has his assistant find him.

4:46 P.M.
Lennox starts coughing, so Reed removes the gag from his mouth
and mops the blood on Lennox's brow. Lennox pleads with Reed to
stop with his plan. "You're just as bad as Fayed," Lennox avows.
Reed asks if he was ever on board with the idea but Lennox says
he was against him from the start. Reed puts the tape back over
Lennox's mouth.

4:48 P.M.
Reed gets a call from the President's assistant, and he tells
her that Lennox is on his way. Carson finishes assembling the
small bomb inside the cassette recorder using explosive liquid
from decoy dry erase markers.

4:49 P.M.
Carson gives Reed a PDA and a code to activate the bomb. Reed
is the only one who can get close to Palmer without attracting
attention, so he will have to place it.

Clock ticks.

4:53 P.M.
Reed tries to hide his nervousness as he enters the broadcast
area where Assad will transmit his speech. The crew gets ready
for a run-through, and Reed slips the bomb-rigged cassette player
into the podium.

4:55 P.M.
Wayne and Assad arrive in the broadcast room. Assad thanks Wayne
for taking a risk.

4:56 P.M.
Wayne pulls Reed aside and asks if Lennox's disappearance means
that he has doubts about them working with Assad. Reed assures
the President that Lennox will show up.

4:57 P.M.
Lennox sees that he is tied up near the pressure valves on the
boiler room pipes. As Carson is distracted, Lennox manages to
twist one of the knobs with his foot. The pressure on the gauge
rises. Carson runs over and turns the valve back to normal. He
threatens to kill Lennox if he tries anything like that again.

4:58 P.M.
Reed excuses himself to the President in order to check on
Lennox. Reed waits outside the broadcast room so he has full
view of what's going on inside. Although his hands are shaking,
he plugs the password into the PDA and activates the bomb.

4:59 P.M.
Assad, who is at the podium, notices some brown fluid dripping.
He leans in and sees a red light blinking on the cassette
recorder. Assad yells "Bomb!" and darts from the podium. A Secret
Service agent quickly lunges in front of Wayne as the podium
explodes. More agents run into the room after the blast. They
push aside the various bodies, including Assad, and find the
President bloodied and unconscious. They summon medical teams.
Reed walks away from the melee quietly.

Clock ticks.

5:00 P.M.
A bloodied Wayne Palmer is rushed into surgery.

5:01 P.M.
Jack warns Logan that he is still a Federal prisoner. Logan
leaves his retreat for the first time as they head to the Russian
Consulate. Logan compares his solitary imprisonment to Jack's
sentence in China.

5:02 P.M.
Buchanan lets Jack know about Wayne. Jack is surprised that
Assad is suspected to be behind the assassination attempt.
Assad is dead.

5:04 P.M.
Reed looks in on the President's surgery. Secret Service Agent
Lowry approaches him looking for Lennox. Reed says that he is
filling in for Lennox.

5:05 P.M.
The White House doctor updates the Cabinet on the President's
health. Vice President Daniels is teleconferenced in from Air
Force Two. Secretary of Defense Ethan Kanin tells Daniels that he
will be required to take over the President's duties. Daniels
wants a briefing with Lennox as soon as he lands.

5:07 P.M.
Kanin questions Reed over the missing Lennox. Reed lies and says
he has no idea. Kanin summons Agent Lowry to sweep the bunker and
find him.

5:08 P.M.
Reed hurries to the boiler room and updates Carson on Wayne. Reed
still refuses to let Carson kill Lennox. He thinks Lennox can be
reasoned with.

5:09 P.M.
Reed pulls the gag from Lennox's mouth and defends his own
actions by quoting Lennox's urging of extremism. He says that
Vice President Daniels will implement Lennox's security plan,
but if Lennox implicates them then the plan will be harder to
push through. No one will ever believe him if tells the truth.
Carson made sure that the bomb was linked to Assad's group.
"I know that you will do the right thing," Reed implores.
Lennox nods sullenly. Reed cuts Lennox free.

5:11 P.M.
They emerge into the hallway and come upon Agent Lowry.
Lennox tells Lowry to arrest Reed and Caron for the
attempted assassination of the President. He surrenders
himself and asks to speak to the Attorney General.

5:12 P.M.
Clock ticks.

5:16 P.M.
Air Force Two lands and Daniels is met on the tarmac by his
chief aide, Lisa Miller. She connects him to Buchanan, and
Daniels questions why Wayne granted Logan a furlough. He
demands that the traitorous Logan be returned to house
arrest as soon as CTU is done.

5:17 P.M.
When they pull up to the Russian Consulate, Logan tells Jack
that Markov won't talk to him unless he's alone. Although Jack
doesn't want to let him out his sight, he reluctantly agrees but
warns Logan about escaping. Logan contends that he's only trying
to help.

5:18 P.M.
Logan meets with Markov and asks him point blank where Gredenko
is. Markov claims he had a falling out with Gredenko a year ago
and doesn't know. Logan threatens to send tapes incriminating
Markov for his involvement two years ago that put the Sentox
gas into the hands of the Russian separatists. Despite this
intimidation, Markov maintains that he doesn't know anything
about Gredenko. Logan says he believes him and politely leaves.

5:22 P.M.
As they exit the grounds, Logan tells Jack that he thinks Markov
is lying about not being in contact with Gredenko.

5:23 P.M.
Markov calls Gredenko to alert him that the Americans have
connected him to the terrorists. Yet, since they sent Logan,
they probably don't have evidence. Markov assures Gredenko
that by the time the Americans find anything it will be too

5:24 P.M.
Jack orders the limo driver to pull over outside of the Consulate
gates. He calls Chloe and has her shut off the electricity in the
Consulate for sixty seconds to make it look like a power outage.
She has to do this without telling Buchanan.

Logan can't believe that Jack would risk violating the
sovereignty of another country when he just served a prison
term for doing the exact same thing to the Chinese Consulate.

Clock ticks.

5:29 P.M.
As Karen waits for transport at Andrews Air Force Base in
Washington, she gets a call from Buchanan. She's shocked to
hear that there was an attempt on Wayne's life since it hasn't
been made public. Karen realizes she must go back to the White
House. Her resignation has not actually been processed yet.

5:30 P.M.
As he enters the bunker, Daniels tells Lisa he wants to use the
Lennox plan that Wayne rejected. Daniels learns of Lennox's
accusation of Reed.

5:31 P.M.
Agent Lowry interrogates Lennox. Despite him telling the truth
about the events of the last few hours, Lowry doesn't believe
him. Daniels comes in and Lennox claims his innocence. Regardless
of what happened, Daniels would rather have Assad take the blame
to make it easier to sell the security plan to the people.
Lennox accuses Daniels of playing right into Reed and Carson's
conspiracy in order to reverse Wayne's agenda. Although Lennox
still believes his original security proposal is the only way to
stop the terrorist attacks, he will have to silence any assertion
that Assad is innocent in order for Daniels to clear his name.

5:34 P.M.
Daniels orders Agent Lowry not to send Lennox's statement to the
Attorney General until he sees it first.

5:35 P.M.
Jack scales the wall of the Russian Consulate and gives Chloe the
go-ahead. As soon as the power is out, Jack is able to evade the
security cameras and enter the building. He enters Markov's
office and locks the door, demanding to know where Gredenko is.
"You are breaking international law!" Markov yells.

5:36 P.M.
Jack knocks Markov out and yells to Russian FSB Agent Vasili
outside that he is holding the Consul hostage.

5:37 P.M.
Jack asks Buchanan to tip off the White House about what he's
just done. Buchanan tells him to get out, but Jack refuses to
leave until he gets something on Gredenko.

5:38 P.M.
Clock ticks.

5:43 P.M.
Lisa informs Daniels that she has written his statement for his
live public address. She also says that Karen is returning to her
post. The rumor is that she stepped down because she opposed
Lennox's security plan.

5:44 P.M.
Buchanan alerts Daniels that Jack took the Russian Consul hostage
because Logan claims the man is lying about his Gredenko link.

5:45 P.M.
Daniels is interrupted by a call from Russian President Suvarov.
Daniels says that the actions at the Consulate are based on the
belief that Markov has ties to Gredenko. Suvarov warns Daniels to
have his agent surrender and then investigate the charges through
proper diplomatic channels.

5:46 P.M.
Jack beats up Markov, who says he hasn't spoken to Gredenko
since he entered U.S. soil. Jack never said that Gredenko was
in America, which proves that Markov is lying.

5:47 P.M.
Jack picks up a cigar cutter from the man's desk and chops the
tip off Markov's pinky finger. Jack threatens to shoot him, and
Markov finally gives up that Gredenko is in the Mojave Desert. He
is preparing to launch aerial drones to deliver the nuclear
warheads. Jack punches Markov one last time in anger.

5:48 P.M.
As Jack walks towards the door, Vasili's guards blast it open and
take an unconscious Jack hostage. Markov orders Vasili to not let
anyone near Jack.

5:49 P.M.
Clock ticks.

5:54 P.M.
Daniels makes an address to the nation, blaming Assad for the
attempt on Wayne's life. He promises to be more aggressive with
national security, which will suspend certain civil liberties.

5:55 P.M.
Nadia and Chloe are worried that they have not heard from
Jack. Morris intercepts digital communications from the Russian
Consulate and translates a message sent to Moscow. It says they
have an American agent in custody. Buchanan doesn't want to tell
the Vice President just yet. He wants a plan prepared in case
they need to take the Consul building by force.

5:56 P.M.
Jack pleads with the Russian guard holding him captive. He
explains that Markov was working with Gredenko who supplied
the nuclear weapons. The guard doesn't want to believe it,
but he knows that Markov is connected to Gredenko. Jack begs
the man to call Buchanan at CTU and tell him what he knows.

5:58 P.M.
The guard leaves the room and dials Buchanan from his cell
phone. Suddenly, Vasili shoots the guard in the head. When
Buchanan picks up the call, there's no one there.

Clock ticks.

6:00 P.M.
At CTU, the workers all stop to stare at Logan -- the man who
had David Palmer killed.

6:01 P.M.
Chloe enters the observation room where Logan is being held. She
won't tell him about what's happening with Jack.

6:03 P.M.
Buchanan introduces his team to Agent Mike Doyle, the new head of
Field Ops. Doyle will lead the attack on the Russian Consulate.
Their goal is to capture Markov. Freeing Jack is secondary. Milo
objects, but Buchanan says that it is ultimately the Vice
President's call.

6:04 P.M.
Milo confronts Doyle about his offensive tone towards the staff.
The two had worked together in the Denver field office. Although
he doesn't like Doyle, Milo assures Nadia that the man is good at
his job.

6:05 P.M.
At the Consulate, Vasili throws a bound Jack down a flight of
stairs. He lands on the dead guard's body. Markov orders Vasili
to kill him. Jack furtively removes the guard's belt and snaps
Vasili's hand that is holding a gun. Vasili tumbles. Jack grabs
the dropped gun and shoots him. Markov sees this on security
cameras and summons his guards to find Jack.

6:06 P.M.
Jack hides in a basement supply closet.

6:07 P.M.
Markov orders all phone and DSL lines to be shut down inside the
Consulate. Jack uses the phone in the supply closet to dial
Morris, but the call is quickly disconnected before he can relay
any information. Jack slams his gun on the circuit box wires to
make the basement power go out.

6:08 P.M.
Milo alerts Buchanan about Jack's call. He knows where Gredenko

6:09 P.M.
Buchanan tells Logan that they must delay their debriefing
because of what Jack found. Logan's theory about Markov is
proving true. Logan warns Buchanan that assaulting the Consulate
will be a mistake. Russian President Suvarov is reluctant to get
involved, but Logan thinks his ex-wife Martha can help because
she became close with the Suvarovs. He wants to appeal to her
personally even though they are not on speaking terms any longer.

6:10 P.M.
Doyle impatiently barks out orders to the techies, and even
grabs Morris by the throat when he makes a snappish comment.
Doyle alerts everyone on the floor that he is in charge of
this mission.

6:11 P.M.
Milo warns Doyle to keep his hands off the workers. "You have
a problem with somebody on my team, you come to me," he growls.
Milo checks in with Morris. The two share a common enemy.

6:12 P.M.
Lennox tells Vice President Daniels that he is "prepared to look
the other way regarding details on the assassination plot, to
a point" in order to defend the country with the right policy.
Yet he wants the truth about Reed and Carson to eventually come
out. Daniels agrees, but he can't have it happen now.

6:13 P.M.
Daniels requests that Lennox tell the ambassador about seeing
Assad plant the bomb. Lennox refuses, which infuriates the Vice
President. Daniels promises that they just need to get through
the current dilemma, and this lie will help them. Daniels has
Lisa clear Lennox of any crime in order to reinstate him as
Chief of Staff.

6:15 P.M.
Daniels wants the ambassador to know that America blames his
country for both the nuclear threat and the assassination
attempt on the President. This will push them to reign in
their terrorists.

Clock ticks.

6:20 P.M.
Fayed arrives at the airplane graveyard with the nukes for

6:21 P.M.
Buchanan briefs Daniels and Lennox on the possible options.
Daniels allows Logan to approach his ex-wife, but he wants
CTU to be prepared to invade the Russian Consulate.

6:22 P.M.
At Meadowcreek, a private retreat for the wealthy undergoing
emotional convalescence, Aaron Pierce passes the Secret Service
agents on duty to enter the bungalow of Martha Logan. He answers
the phone when Logan calls, but Martha declines to speak to her
ex-husband. Logan explains that it's about the Suvarovs, and she
picks up. Logan presses her for help, but she refuses. Logan asks
Pierce to convince her to allow him to visit. He heads there by

6:26 P.M.
Clock ticks.

6:31 P.M.
Buchanan calls Logan aboard the chopper to caution him about the
plan to attack the Consulate. He will need to persuade Martha to
contact the Russians before CTU engages the assault.

6:32 P.M.
As Jack sneaks his way through the Consulate building, he winces
in pain. He comes upon two staffers who are sharing a romantic
embrace. At gunpoint, Jack demands that they get him access to an
outside line. The man says there is a satellite phone upstairs.
Jack threatens to kill the girl to insure his return.

6:33 P.M.
When Logan arrives at Meadowcreek, Pierce refuses to shake his
hand and Martha maintains iciness towards her ex. Logan stops in
his tracks, seeing the woman he once loved -- or perhaps still
loves -- for the first time in almost two years. He asks her to
call her friend Anya Suvarov to convince her husband to order the
Consul General to surrender himself because he knows about the
nuclear bombs still at large. Martha is reluctant to follow
Logan's command, and she turns to Pierce for advice. Pierce
thinks she should do this, and Martha agrees to help.

6:37 P.M.
Clock ticks.

6:42 P.M.
Doyle makes his way with a team to the Russian Consulate.

6:43 P.M.
Daniels tells the ambassador that Assad was responsible for
detonating the explosion that injured the President. Daniels
turns to Lennox to corroborate the story. Lennox fights to hide
his discomfort but agrees with the Vice President. Daniels
threatens to bomb major cities in the ambassador's country
because of Fayed's and Assad's threats unless they help
America find the rogue nukes.

6:44 P.M.
Buchanan and Nadia think there may not be enough time for
Anya Suvarov to convince her husband to change his mind.

6:45 P.M.
As they wait for Mrs. Suvarov, Martha becomes unnerved and she
turns to Pierce for support. As she strokes Pierce's arm, Martha
asks Logan if it bothers him to see her with another man. He
admits that it does, and Martha begins to unleash all the pent up
rage she has had for him. Pierce asks her to stop, but Martha
does not calm down.

6:47 P.M.
As she makes her way to the kitchen with dirty plates, Martha
stabs Logan in the neck with a kitchen knife. Chaos erupts as an
agent restrains Martha and Pierce calls for a medic to treat the
bleeding Logan. Martha screams and Logan tries to stay conscious.

6:48 P.M.
Clock ticks.

6:53 P.M.
Logan goes into shock and an ambulance carts him away. Pierce
contacts Buchanan to explain what happened. The Vice President
has ordered CTU to attack the Russian Consulate unless Suvarov
intercedes. Pierce isn't sure whether Martha is capable of
speaking to Anya.

6:54 P.M.
Martha, who is in handcuffs, cannot understand why she is
being condemned. She calls Logan one of the biggest criminals
in history. Pierce calmly asks whether she is able to do what
she promised. "Of course I am. I'm not crazy," she says
incredulously. Martha takes the phone and coherently explains
to Anya the urgency of her call.

6:55 P.M.
Doyle's team monitors the outside of the Consulate building.
Armed Russian guards are at the ready.

6:56 P.M.
President Suvarov calls Markov, ordering him to surrender and
hand over Jack unharmed. Markov vehemently snubs him and hangs
up. Suvarov tells Buchanan that Markov is not cooperating.
Suvarov personally authorizes the American government to
use force against the Russian Consulate.

6:57 P.M.
The Consulate officer brings back the satellite phone to Jack.
As he's about to dial, a guard comes in and fires. The man is
shot. Jack takes cover.

Buchanan gives Doyle the go ahead, and the SWAT teams begin
attacking the Russian guards to take over the building.

6:58 P.M.
Jack runs out of ammo and two guards enter the room where he's
hiding. Suddenly, a grenade smashes through the window. CTU
agents fire at the two guards.

Markov calls Gredenko and warns him that he is being attacked by
the Americans. "You must launch now!" Markov exclaims. CTU agents
swarm Markov's office and shoot him.

6:59 P.M.
Jack identifies himself to Doyle, and tells him where Gredenko
is. Doyle radios Buchanan, who pulls up satellite coverage over
the Mojave Desert.

At the airplane graveyard, Fayed readies the first drone with the
nuclear weapon.

As the ambulance races to the hospital, Logan calls out for
Martha. His heart starts to crash.

Although Jack still wants to be involved in the mission, Doyle
sends him back to CTU.

7:01 P.M.
Buchanan briefs the Vice President about the aerial drones armed
with nuclear warheads in the Mojave Desert.

7:02 P.M.
Fayed has only one drone ready to launch. Gredenko hurries
him because the Americans are aware of their plan, and Fayed
is furious that Markov spilled the beans. Gredenko orders his
man operating the drones to launch the first one prematurely.
The man pilots it remotely as it takes off from the desert.
Gredenko and Fayed pack up their teams and head out.

7:05 P.M.
Chloe catches sight of Milo taking Nadia's hand. She tells
them that she knows Nadia has been using Milo's security
codes, forcing Nadia to come clean about being racially
profiled. Even though what they are doing is a felony,
Chloe will not report them.

7:07 P.M.
CTU spots the aerial drone over the desert and Buchanan notifies
Andrews Air Force Base to have an F-16 intercept it. Suddenly,
the drone disappears from the CTU radar. Morris panics.

7:08 P.M.
Gredenko's man has disabled CTU's tracking capabilities so that
they cannot detect the drone.

7:09 P.M.
Vice President Daniels can't understand why the most
sophisticated satellite network in the world lost a small
drone. He asks Lisa to quickly summon the Joint Chiefs of
Staff so that they can assemble their own nuclear strike
against Fayed's country. Lennox is horror-struck.

7:10 P.M.
Clock ticks.

7:15 P.M.
Chloe determines that San Francisco, Las Vegas and Phoenix might
be potential targets for the bomb.

7:16 P.M.
Jack arrives at CTU and sees Marilyn. "I always regretted things
didn't work out between us," she says. Marilyn leans in to kiss
Jack, but he turns his head to avoid it. He explains that he was
with someone before he was captured by the Chinese. Marilyn
realizes that he doesn't know that Audrey Raines is dead and
tells him that she was killed in a car accident a few months
ago in China. Jack stumbles away from Marilyn in anguish.

7:18 P.M.
Jack rushes to Chloe's desk and demands to know why he wasn't
told about Audrey. Buchanan didn't want him to find out at first,
and they assumed they would tell him when the mission was over.
Chloe describes how Audrey was using back channels to save him
once she found out he was taken by the Chinese. Jack wants to
see her file.

7:19 P.M.
Lisa lets Daniels know that Karen Hayes will be in attendance
at the Joint Chiefs meeting even though he wanted her excluded.

7:20 P.M.
Karen enters at the White House bunker and tells Lennox that she
is there to represent Wayne.

7:21 P.M.
Daniels announces to the Joint Chiefs that he is prepared to
engage a nuclear military response if a second bomb befalls
the United States. Shocked, Karen advises the Vice President
that this will only encourage other countries to start a world
war against them. Daniels dismisses her presumption and orders
a nuclear strike submarine to stand by.

Despite Milo's reservations, Nadia thinks Morris is fine.
Milo asks Chloe to make sure.

7:29 P.M.
Chloe goes up to Morris and kisses him. "Just checking your
breath," she says.

7:30 P.M.
Karen questions Lennox about his support for Daniels's plan
because she could see the doubt in his eyes. Lennox claims that
he is at the service of the Vice President and that all of
Wayne's decisions today have been wrong. Yet he never reveals
to her what he stands for.

7:31 P.M.
Chloe realizes that the drone pilot has access to CTU's
satellite. There is a leak, but it will take too long to
find it on everyone's system. Doyle insists they run a
trace on Nadia's station because she has been tagged as
a Muslim. Milo argues, and Doyle wonders if he's defending
her because he wants to sleep with her. Milo is ready to
throw a punch at him when Buchanan intervenes.

7:33 P.M.
Chloe finds that it is Nadia's station causing the leak, but
she cannot shut her down without affecting all the systems.
Doyle calls security, and goes to Nadia's desk. He grabs her,
demanding to know where the drone pilot is. Nadia looks at him
incredulously. Despite Nadia's pleas, Buchanan has her sent to
holding. Morris runs a back-trace to the leak on her station.

7:34 P.M.
Gredenko gets word from his man that the drone will detonate over
San Francisco within twenty minutes.

Clock ticks.

can be woken for a matter of national security even though it may
cost him his life. The doctor would need consent from Wayne's

Milo wonders whether Nadia is really a terrorist, but Chloe
doesn't know what to believe. He makes a crack about Doyle,
who is interrogating Nadia.

7:42 P.M.
Morris comes up with a location for the source of the feed.
It is only a few blocks from CTU.

As he grabs Nadia by the throat, Doyle warns her that he will
do anything to get answers. She says she knows what happened
in Denver and that he enjoys hurting people. Nadia is adamant
that she isn't guilty.

7:43 P.M.
Milo barges in and tells Doyle to stop because they got the
address for the drone pilot. Doyle storms out. Nadia claims
she had nothing to do with this, but Milo says nothing.

7:44 P.M.
Jack sits in medical with his chest wrapped up. His shirtless
back is scarred. He goes over the file about Audrey's death in
China. Jack sees rumblings in CTU and a field agent tells him
that they have a location for the drone pilot.

7:45 P.M.
As Buchanan readies the teams, Jack puts on a shirt and asks
Chloe for a PDA and a phone. He tells Buchanan that he is going
with the field team, and then he will avenge Audrey's murder.
"Please, you have to let me finish this," he asks.

7:46 P.M.
Clock ticks.

7:51 P.M.
Gredenko's man reports that his drone bomb will reach the target
in about three minutes. Gredenko asks to be called when it's

Jack, Doyle and the SWAT teams wait at the location. Chloe tells
them where to enter. Before they advance, Jack winces in pain.
Doyle asks if he should lead the team instead, but Jack says he
is fine.

7:52 P.M.
They move in, taking out guards as they progress. The drone
pilot hears the scuffle and fires back. He's about to set off
a hand grenade, but Jack shoots him.

7:53 P.M.
Jack sits down at the pilot's computer and sees that San
Francisco is the target. The bomb is triggered to a GPS device
that will set it off once it crosses the zone of the city. He
taps Chloe in and starts to steer the drone away from the target.

7:54 P.M.
Jack manages to veer the drone away from San Francisco's
perimeter, but because he had to turn it sharply it stalls.
He begins to lose control of its routing. It needs a stretch
to land, and Chloe finds an industrial park.

7:55 P.M.
Jack puts the drone on the ground, and the team watches from its
monitors as it endures a bumpy crash landing. None of the first
responders have reported a detonation. The bomb did not go off
on impact.

7:56 P.M.
A fire and rescue team arrives at the landing site. A Geiger
counter indicates the presence of radioactive material among
the flaming wreckage. The drone's cone is cracked wide open.
All personnel are told to move back.

7:57 P.M.
Buchanan reports to the Vice President that they were able to
find the drone and land it, but that radioactive material was
released on its landing. Daniels still sees this as an attack
on the nation even though the nuclear material was not widely
dispersed. "Proceed with the warning strike as planned," Daniels
commands. Karen argues that the attack was averted and Lennox
adds that their response was only to be instituted at the
detonation of a nuclear device. Yet Daniels sees this as
a technicality. He wants to hit back, and gives the Defense
Secretary the order to launch the nuclear missile once the
submarine is into position. It will be there within an hour.

Clock ticks.

8:00 P.M.
The drone pilot dies at the scene. Vice President Daniels
plans to launch a nuclear attack within the hour because
of the radioactive spillage at the drone landing.

8:02 P.M.
Gredenko cannot reach his drone pilot, and Fayed knows this is
because the Americans have found him. Although they still have
two bombs left, Fayed doesn't trust Gredenko anymore.

8:04 P.M.
Gredenko calls a man named Mark Hauser and demands more of the
access he paid for. Hauser will have to download new security
protocol to get to CTU. Hauser asks his autistic brother Brady
for help retrieving files. Brady happily agrees and gets to work
on a laptop.

8:07 P.M.
Nadia is being processed as an enemy combatant for the leaks on
her system. Milo still refuses to believe she is a spy.

8:08 P.M.
While tracing Gredenko's former contacts, Chloe finds a recent
scrambled call to a security consultant named Mark Hauser. She
locates Hauser's address.

8:09 P.M.
At the site, a forensic technician named Johnson lets Doyle
know that he recovered a remote access module on the drone
pilot's computer. This proves that the pilot had breached
CTU's satellite without Nadia's knowledge. Doyle will be
chastised for his mistreatment of her. Yet Johnson gives
Doyle the device, acknowledging a favor Doyle had once
done for him in Denver.

8:10 P.M.
Doyle tells Jack he needs to stay back at the site instead of
following up on a Gredenko lead.

Clock ticks.

8:14 P.M.
Karen approaches Sandra Palmer, who is looking in on her brother.
Karen asks her to approve reviving Wayne from his coma even
though this could risk his life. She wants Wayne to do something
about Daniels launching a nuclear strike.

8:17 P.M.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs updates Daniels. They can bomb
the enemy within the hour. Daniels receives a note from Lisa and
excuses himself from the briefing.

8:18 P.M.
Daniels learns that Sandra has agreed to take Wayne out of his
coma. He is furious and blames Karen.

8:19 P.M.
Daniels calls the doctor and accuses him of risking the life of
the President to subvert his policy. Yet the doctor is only
respecting the wishes of Sandra. Daniels threatens to nail
him down if the President dies.

8:21 P.M.
Jack arrives at the Hauser home with his TAC team. They quickly
raid the house and shoot at Hauser, who pulls out his shotgun.
Brady whimpers as his brother is apprehended. As the agents try
to stabilize Hauser's wounds, Jack talks to Brady. Hauser had
Brady get through a firewall to set up a proxy server port.

8:22 P.M.
Jack tells Hauser that Brady will be prosecuted for helping him
get information to Gredenko. Jack will keep Brady out of trouble
if Hauser gives up Gredenko. Hauser admits that he was getting
security specifications for the Edgemont Nuclear Power Plant.

8:23 P.M.
Doyle returns to CTU and inquires after Nadia, who is being
transferred to a holding facility. Jack tells Buchanan that he
wants to use Brady because Gredenko is coming to see Hauser.

8:24 P.M.
Clock ticks.

8:28 P.M.
Hauser instructs Brady to listen to Jack.

8:31 P.M.
Hauser calls Gredenko and lies about having to go into work.
Hauser says he will leave the protocols with his brother, who
will wait for Gredenko at a parking lot across the street.
Hauser is taken away in an ambulance.

8:32 P.M.
Johnson approaches Milo on the CTU floor and tells him that
he has evidence that clears Nadia. Johnson says he gave it
to Doyle, who has not logged it in.

8:33 P.M.
Milo lunges at Doyle and tells Buchanan that Doyle is covering
up evidence. Morris says that Doyle gave him the chip ten
minutes ago. Doyle explains to Buchanan that he got it from an
"unreliable source" and wanted to verify it before bringing it
forward. Morris did the scan and found it to be legitimate. Milo
apologizes to Doyle, who pats him on the shoulder and tells him
to forget about it.

8:34 P.M.
Doyle goes up to Johnson. "You've screwed with the wrong guy for
the last time, pal," he says menacingly.

Clock ticks.

8:39 P.M.
Buchanan has Nadia released from holding. He wouldn't blame
her for quitting and taking legal action, but he asks her to
stay because they need her. She agrees to keep working.

8:40 P.M.
Chloe thinks it will be most awkward for Milo when Nadia
returns because he hasn't hidden his feelings for her.

8:41 P.M.
Milo sets up Nadia's station with full security access. She
imparts that whatever would have happened between them is over.
"This is not the best place to start a relationship," she says.
Milo grabs her head and kisses her. She lets him.

8:42 P.M.
Wayne suffers more swelling which could cause brain damage. The
doctor advises Sandra to re-induce the coma but she refuses.
"I know Wayne would want to see this through," she says.
Suddenly, Wayne's heart crashes. The medical team rushes
to save him.

8:44 P.M.
Jack is unsure whether Brady will be able to make the plan work,
but he has no other option. He puts an earwig in Brady's ear so
that they can hear each other and carefully instructs him on what
to say to Gredenko.

8:45 P.M.
Brady is placed in position at the lot as the teams set up.

8:46 P.M.
Gredenko's car pulls up to the lot and he gets out.
Unfortunately, the snipers don't have a clear shot of him.
Speaking Russian, Gredenko orders his men to shoot Brady. Jack
translates this. He then tells Brady to get down on the ground,
and the sniper pegs Gredenko in the neck with a tranquilizer
dart. A firefight ensues with the henchmen and the agents take
them all out.

8:48 P.M.
Jack sprints to the car to retrieve the frightened Brady. The
agents carry Gredenko into the house. No bombs are in his car.

8:49 P.M.
Clock ticks.

8:54 P.M.
Jack puts Brady into a car and thanks him for his help. Brady is
sent to the hospital to be with his brother.

Gredenko is placed in handcuffs. He knows who Jack is, and says
he will help him find Fayed in return for amnesty and a guarantee
that he will not be turned over to Russian President Suvarov.
Fayed is waiting for Gredenko to call.

8:56 P.M.
Lennox interrupts the Joint Chiefs meeting with news that CTU has
apprehended Gredenko. Daniels gives the go-ahead for the nuclear
strike anyway. Lennox tries to stop him, but the Vice President
refuses. "A reminder to the world there are consequences to
attacking our country," Daniels boldly asserts. Lennox is in

8:58 P.M.
The submarine that was ready to launch the nuclear attack has
been given orders to stand down from President Palmer. Wayne
calls Daniels from his hospital bed to explain that he called
off the strike. "I'm resuming my duties as Commander in Chief,"
he says, warning Daniels not to plan any hostile action without
his authorization.

8:59 P.M.
Daniels hangs up. He tells the Joint Chiefs that Wayne is not
thinking clearly, a result of the attacks on his life. Daniels
declares that the President is not able to continue his duties.
He calls for the Attorney General.

Clock ticks.

9:00 P.M.
Daniels assembles the President's Cabinet via satellite to invoke
the 25th Amendment.

9:01 P.M.
Although it will raise his blood pressure, Wayne has the doctor
shoot him up with adrenaline. He wants to be able to face Daniels
standing up.

9:02 P.M.
Jack tells Buchanan that he doesn't trust Gredenko. Yet a
challenge for the Presidency means that Gredenko's pardon
will not be binding. Jack asks for the Attorney General to
draw up amnesty papers.

9:04 P.M.
Wayne defiantly walks into the conference room and is greeted by
Daniels. The Cabinet members are authorized by the Constitution
to make the final decision. The doctor who treated the President
announces to them that he believes Wayne is fit enough to work.

9:07 P.M.
Wayne speaks up for himself, and blames his disagreement with
Daniels over the nuclear strike as the reason for this vote.
Daniels argues that they can interpret the 25th Amendment to
remove a President whose policies they disagree with. He says he
merely wanted to counterattack a warlike aggression when Wayne
chose to do nothing.

9:09 P.M.
The Cabinet members prepare to vote.

Clock ticks.

9:13 P.M.
Nadia tells Milo that she wants to forget what happened between
them. He doesn't think either of them can forget about the kiss.

9:14 P.M.
Doyle summons Nadia to his office. He coldly explains that he
didn't single her out because he's racist. He was just doing
his job. He believes Milo caused the leak by logging in with
the wrong security parameters. Doyle wants Nadia to get the
evidence from Milo's system to prove this. She feels angry
and manipulated, but Doyle says she can help Milo avoid
the same humiliation that she endured.

9:16 P.M.
Karen and Sandra try to convince a weakened Wayne to marginalize
Daniels, but Wayne can't do that without alienating Daniels's
supporters. The Cabinet is reconvened.

9:17 P.M.
Lennox calls for a vote. Seven people, including Karen, support
the President. Seven oppose. The Attorney General explains that
the Amendment requires the Vice President and the majority of the
Cabinet must agree. Since there is no majority, Wayne remains in
office. Wayne smiles in relief.

9:18 P.M.
Daniels interjects that Karen's vote does not count because she
resigned from her post. Karen contests that she did resume her
duties, but Daniels claims he never recognized her as National
Security Advisor after that. Since her vote isn't valid, there
is a majority split against Wayne. "I won't let you steal the
Presidency," Wayne says forcefully. The Attorney General
determines that this is a legal question. The Supreme
Court will have to hear the issue. Wayne winces in pain.

9:20 P.M.
Daniels accuses Lennox of not being on his side. Lennox informs
him that he has only been on the side of the United States of

Clock ticks.

9:24 P.M.
Nadia guiltily asks Milo for help resetting her station. When
he leaves to go do it for her, she gets into his workstation
and quickly downloads files onto a USB key drive.

9:25 P.M.
Nadia gives the key to Doyle and smugly says he was right about
Milo being responsible for the security breach. She is surprised
when he alters the logs so that no one will discover Milo's
mistake. "All I care about is finding those nukes," he says. "And
we have a better chance of doing that with Milo on board, whether
he likes me or not." She's surprised again when Doyle quotes the
Koran. He says he has read every religious book because he cannot
find his own answers. Doyle is not the man Nadia thought he was.

9:26 P.M.
Nadia returns to her station. Milo asks her what Doyle wanted,
and she lies. Yet Milo senses something is off about Nadia.

9:27 P.M.
Karen calls Buchanan and fills him in on the 25th Amendment
vote. She is unsure whether her resignation will really hold
up the decision. Buchanan comforts her. She is scared that
Daniels will win and it will all be her fault.

9:28 P.M.
Gredenko verifies the agreements with his lawyer, and CTU
prepares a team to pounce on Fayed. Jack threatens to kill
Gredenko if he tips off Fayed.

9:29 P.M.
Gredenko phones Fayed and makes plans to meet at the Santa Monica

9:30 P.M.
Sandra writes the brief for the Supreme Court arguing that
Daniels accepted Karen's return to office.

9:31 P.M.
In the bunker lounge, Lisa discusses the case with Daniels.
The Vice President is convinced that a weak Wayne will only
encourage the terrorists to fight back. Lisa suggests she lie
to the Supreme Court. She can say that Daniels told her Karen's
return would only be temporary. She believes Daniels will do
what is right for the good of the country. He takes her hand
warmly in thanks. Daniels is aware that they were talking
about commiting a perjury.

9:34 P.M.
Halil, one of Fayed's men, advocates detonating the bombs
themselves without Gredenko's help. Fayed turns Halil down.

9:35 P.M.
Lennox enters the bunker lounge and shows the Vice President the
bug he planted in the room to protect himself after Daniels had
asked him to lie to the ambassador. Lennox plays back a tape of
Lisa offering to perjure herself and Daniels accepting her
proposition. This is a federal offense. Lennox wants Daniels
to call off his challenge to Wayne's presidency.

9:37 P.M.
Clock ticks.

9:41 P.M.
Karen readies the launch codes so that Wayne can cancel the
nuclear strike if the Supreme Court rules in his favor. Sandra
happily brings news that Daniels withdrew his affidavit. Wayne
will remain the President. When Karen and Sandra leave the room,
Wayne calls the doctor because he is struggling with pain.

9:42 P.M.
Jack gets into position at the pier, and another agent injects
Gredenko's arm with a radioactive tracking device. Since Doyle's
team is still far away and Fayed gave explicit orders about time,
Jack sends Gredenko to meet with Fayed.

9:44 P.M.
A cell phone rings, and Gredenko finds it hidden on a railing. No
one is on the line. But Jack can see Gredenko read a text message
instructing him where to go.

9:45 P.M.
Gredenko is grabbed by Fayed's men and taken into a building.
He silently shows Fayed the listening device CTU placed in his
jacket. Gredenko unplugs it, and Morris loses audio at CTU.
Gredenko explains to Fayed that the Americans forced his
hand but that he has a plan.

9:46 P.M.
Jack heads to the building where CTU has traced Gredenko. Milo
confirms that Gredenko is still inside but the room is empty.
Jack finds Gredenko's severed arm on the ground.

9:47 P.M.
Jack calls for the field team to invade, and he follows the
trail of blood throughout the building. Fayed's two men help
the wounded Gredenko escape.

9:48 P.M.
Clock ticks.

9:52 P.M.
Fayed's men spot Jack alone and start firing. Jack ducks for
cover but manages to take out the two guards single-handedly.

9:53 P.M.
As the CTU team starts after them, Fayed and Gredenko flee into
a bar filled with patrons watching the news about the attacks.
Gredenko realizes that they are trapped, and he points out Fayed
as the terrorist being hunted. The other people recognize
Fayed's face from the news. Fayed shoots at Gredenko, but he
misses and hits one of the people. The patrons grab Fayed and
start punching him. Gredenko runs out the back door. Jack enters
the bar and apprehends Fayed. He radios CTU that Gredenko is
still at large.

9:54 P.M.
The White House doctor begrudgingly gives Wayne another dose of
adrenaline which will raise his blood pressure even higher. It's
a chance Wayne is willing to take.

9:55 P.M.
Buchanan informs Wayne that Fayed is in custody but that the
bombs have not been found. Jack will interrogate Fayed.

9:56 P.M.
A bloodied and weakened Gredenko hides under the pier. He
falls down and dies as the ocean waves crash over his body.

9:57 P.M.
Karen and Lennox agree to a truce because they are both working
for the good of the country. She asks why Daniels gave up so
easily, and Lennox feigns ignorance. "Some day I'd love to know
the real story," she smiles.

9:58 P.M.
Lennox gets a call alerting him that Wayne ordered a nuclear
strike. He and Karen are in shock.

9:59 P.M.
Lennox rushes to the conference room and confronts the President.
Wayne defends his actions because everyone thought he was too
weak to lead the country. "Do not confuse being reckless with
being strong!" Lennox exhorts. The Joint Chiefs Commander
confirms that the launch has occurred. Lennox watches in horror
at the radar image of the missile emerging from the submarine.

Clock ticks.

10:00 P.M.
As the missile enters its target airspace, Lennox tries pleading
with Wayne to put a stop to it. He emphasizes that the ambassador
pledged that Fayed's actions were not state-sponsored.

10:01 P.M.
Karen calls Buchanan to ask whether Jack has broken Fayed.
Buchanan cannot give her any intel on the suitcase nukes that
would make the President end the attack.

10:02 P.M.
Wayne refuses to wait for Jack to come up with answers. The
American missile gets picked up by the other country's radar.

10:03 P.M.
The ambassador urgently calls Wayne and says his country has
"uncovered new information". General Habib in their central
command has been arrested for helping Fayed orchestrate the
attacks. Wayne accuses the ambassador of lying about their
knowledge of Habib. With two minutes left to the bomb's impact,
Wayne aborts the nuclear attack but demands the ambassador come
to the White House and provide intelligence on Habib.

10:06 P.M.
The Joint Chiefs Commander stops the missile, dumping it into
the Gulf. Wayne was proven right when he had suspected the
ambassador was covering up knowledge about the terrorist
threat. So he bluffed. There was no warhead in the missile.
Wayne was using force to get cooperation without risking lives.

10:08 P.M.
Jack beats up Fayed, who won't tell him where the bombs are.

10:09 P.M.
Buchanan fills in Jack about General Habib, but they still don't
have a location on the bombs. Buchanan wants Fayed transported
back to CTU in order to do something more drastic.

10:10 P.M.
While Jack's on the phone, Doyle tries his hand at manipulating
Fayed. He notes that Fayed's number two guy will detonate the
nukes and become the hero. "I serve the will of God," Fayed
snarls. Doyle raises his gun to Fayed's forehead and Jack quickly
intercedes, ordering Doyle to lower his weapon. Doyle asks Jack
for more time with Fayed. Jack refuses. They are transporting
Fayed to CTU. "Now we're gonna have some fun," Jack says to

10:11 P.M.
Clock ticks.

10:15 P.M.
Lennox apologizes to Wayne for doubting his strength and
leadership. He realizes that he was wrong for backing Daniels.

10:17 P.M.
Wayne asks Lennox if he has something over Daniels that convinced
him to not go through with the Supreme Court challenge. "I'm here
to inform you and also to protect you," Lennox says as he leaves.
Wayne's right hand starts twitching. He senses his own
deteriorating condition.

10:18 P.M.
In the SWAT van headed back to CTU, Doyle questions Jack about
the use of Burke's methods. He has never found pharmaceutical
torture effective. "I have," Jack says. Doyle tries to threaten
Fayed, but Jack commands him to stop. Suddenly, an armored truck
lunges into the path of the van, sending it toppling over. Gunmen
emerge from the armored truck and descend upon them.

10:19 P.M.
Jack knocks out the front windshield and shoots. Doyle goes out
the back, returning fire. Doyle is hit in the chest and goes
down. Jack is also hit. The gunmen grab Fayed, take him into
their truck and speed away.

10:20 P.M.
As a number of CTU cars pull up, Jack, Doyle and the downed
field agents wake up unharmed. So do the "slain" gunmen. Jack
radios Buchanan that their cover team has Fayed. "Do you think
he bought it?" Buchanan asks.

As they drive off in a follow car, Jack notes that Doyle is
bleeding on his neck. "Mike, do you need medical assistance?"
Nadia radios. He thanks her for her concern, but he is fine.
Milo looks over to Nadia quizzically.

10:21 P.M.
Chloe patches in video from the cover truck to Jack. The pretend
terrorists explain to Fayed that General Habib sent them. They
say that Habib found him through his government spies. Fayed asks
for a gun. The men hesitate, but then give him one. Fayed checks
to see if it has ammunition, then he demands to speak to Habib.
He refuses to give his hideout to the gunmen until he does.

10:22 P.M.
Buchanan tells Jack that he doesn't know if they can make Habib
happen, but he will call the White House.

Clock ticks.

10:27 P.M.
Buchanan tells Wayne and Lennox about the fake rescue. Jack
believes Fayed won't lead them to the nukes until he speaks to
Habib. Wayne says he will pressure the ambassador to make the
call to his countrymen interrogating Habib.

10:28 P.M.
Lennox questions whether they should try other means to get Fayed
to talk. "If Jack Bauer says that's a dead end, then it's a dead
end and I believe him," Wayne says emphatically. Wayne appears
woozy and stumbles. Lennox helps him, but Wayne assures him that
he is OK.

10:29 P.M.
Wayne greets the ambassador in the bunker with a stern demeanor.
They cannot get General Habib to talk, and Wayne suggests they
shoot one of the man's sons in front of him. America needs Habib
to call Fayed immediately.

10:31 P.M.
Buchanan asks Nadia to translate the conversation between Habib
and Fayed. She asks Milo to upload the link because he has
a higher security clearance, but he blows her off. Milo can't
understand why she suddenly is nice to Doyle -- the guy who just
threatened her. They argue, but Milo gives in.

10:33 P.M.
Fayed instructs the armored truck to pull into a garage. Jack
and Doyle tail them. Fayed will not move further until Habib
calls, and he questions why he's never heard of this terrorist
cell before. Listening in, Doyle is nervous that their cover
has been blown.

10:34 P.M.
The cover team's cell phone rings. The agent gives Fayed the
phone because Habib is calling. From a middle-eastern holding
cell, a bloodied Habib tells Fayed that he failed to detonate
any of the bombs. Habib orders him to get the other two nukes
ready and he will give him a target soon. Fayed accepts this,
and directs the cover team to his safe house.

10:36 P.M.
Karen notices that Wayne is considerably weaker, but he tells her
he's merely tired. Lennox notifies them that CTU is being led to
the bombs. Wayne unexpectedly dismisses the ambassador from the
White House. He gasps for air and begs Lennox to lock the door.
"No one can know," he wheezes as he collapses to the floor.

10:37 P.M.
Clock ticks.

10:42 P.M.
Buchanan orders no raid of the safe house until Jack confirms
the nuclear warheads are there. Nadia realizes that, in the
conversation with Fayed, Habib referenced a former colleague
named Sameer who has been dead for years. She thinks it might be
a signal from Habib that he was speaking under duress. Buchanan
alerts Jack.

10:43 P.M.
Jack dials the agent in the armored truck and warns him that
Fayed might know this is a setup. Suddenly, CTU loses video and
audio from the truck. The truck had gone into a short tunnel and
stopped in the middle. Jack has the TAC teams seal the other end.

10:44 P.M.
Jack and Doyle head into the tunnel and stop where the truck is
parked. The cover team has been hit and Fayed is gone. Jack sees
a door in the tunnel that is opened. He goes in alone to a boiler

10:45 P.M.
Jack spots Fayed, who has just killed a sanitation worker and has
taken his cell phone to make a call. "I'm on my way to you now,"
Fayed tells the person on the line as he gets in the sanitation
truck and pulls out.

10:46 P.M.
Jack is clinging to the undercarriage of the truck, just inches
from the asphalt that speeds past his head. He radios CTU but
they can't hear him and lose the signal. Doyle reports that he
found a dead sanitation worker but that Jack is missing. Chloe
starts a satellite backtrace on the site from the past few

10:47 P.M.
Clock ticks.

10:51 P.M.
The White House doctor checks Wayne. His blood pressure has
significantly dropped and the adrenaline shots have caused him
damage. Wayne refuses to go to medical, demanding another
injection of adrenaline. The doctor will not give it to him.
Undaunted, Wayne gets up even though it is painful. He wants
to go back to work, and asks for updates from CTU.

10:54 P.M.
Fayed drives the sanitation truck to a warehouse, where he is met
by Halil and the other men. He orders them to quickly load up the
bombs in order to attack downtown Los Angeles. Jack slips out
from the undercarriage and sneaks inside the warehouse.

10:55 P.M.
After he spots the suitcase nukes, Jack starts firing and takes
out some of the guards. He hides behind large boxes, shooting to
get the men away from the nuclear weapons.

10:56 P.M.
As both Jack and Fayed empty the rounds in their guns, Jack
lunges at him and they engage in a fight. Jack manages to wrap
Fayed's neck in a heavy chain dangling from a mechanical draw.
"Say hello to your brother," Jack whispers as he turns the draw
on. Fayed is hanged. Jack winces in pain as his ribs are injured
once again.

10:58 P.M.
Doyle and the field teams arrive at the warehouse. They tracked
the sanitation trucks by satellite. Doyle radios CTU that the
bombs are secured. Buchanan and the team heave a sigh of relief.

10:59 P.M.
As Doyle starts to take Jack to medical, he gets a call on his
cell phone and hands it to Jack. The woman's voice on the other
end stops Jack in his tracks. It's Audrey Raines. Cheng Zhi grabs
the phone from her. He instructs Jack to call back on a secure
line if he ever wants to see Audrey alive.

Clock ticks.

11:00 P.M.
The military takes control of the bombs.

11:02 P.M.
Jack grabs one of the terrorists' cell phones and calls Cheng
back. Cheng says that Audrey went to Beijing to find Jack,
despite the objections of her family and the government. He asks
Jack for the trigger mechanism from the suitcase nukes because
the Chinese want use it to access the Russian defense technology.
Cheng is not concerned that the Russians will know the leak came
from America. If Jack refuses, Cheng threatens to kill Audrey.
Jack explains that the bombs are under military control. Cheng
says simply, "You'll find a way."

11:05 P.M.
Cheng puts Audrey on the phone with Jack, who assures her that
he will save her. Cheng gives Jack one hour to complete the

11:06 P.M.
Noting Wayne's visible weakened state, Lennox urges him to go
to medical. Wayne refuses because this will only give Daniels
another chance to go after his job. Lennox promises this won't
happen, and he explains that he has a tape of Daniels and Lisa
Miller conspiring to commit perjury.

11:07 P.M.
Karen brings Wayne news that CTU has recovered the remaining
suitcase nukes and that Fayed was killed. Wayne thinks they
should make a press announcement as soon as possible, but he
wants to do it outside of the bunker. There is no need to hide
any longer. He's returning to the Oval Office.

11:08 P.M.
While Buchanan briefs the entire CTU staff, Jack calls Chloe. He
tells her that Audrey is still alive and that Cheng wants a nuke

Chloe remembers that Morris filed a report for the Defense
Department. She goes to his station and finds it. Chloe sends it
on a secure line to the cell phone Jack is using. It downloads
just before Morris returns to his desk.

Clock ticks.

11:15 P.M.
Daniels comes to see Wayne in the Oval Office. Although Wayne
disagreed with Daniels's idea to bomb the enemy, it allowed him
to consider the bluff that did work. Yet Wayne orders him to quit
his post because he cannot run the country with Daniels
undermining him. Daniels refuses, but Wayne tells him that he
could expose Lennox's tape recording. Wayne allows him a week to
tender his resignation.

11:19 P.M.
Morris sees that someone has hacked into his system. Chloe is
surprised to learn that he set up a program to spot unauthorized

11:20 P.M.
Chloe admits what she did for Jack and Morris is shocked. Jack
gave her his word that he won't let the bomb trigger get to the
Chinese, but Morris doesn't want to feel responsible for the
bombs like when Fayed forced him to activate the trigger. He
insists on telling Buchanan. Chloe says she will do it instead.

11:22 P.M.
Chloe goes to Buchanan's office. "I'm sorry, there's something
you need to know," she says.

11:23 P.M.
Jack enters the safe house where the Marines are guarding the
nuclear weapons. He claims he has a Presidential order to take
the circuit board from the bombs because the area has been
compromised. He threatens to turn them in. The soldiers allow
him to enter. As the Marines stand guard, Jack removes the
FB-sub-circuit board that matches the schematics Chloe uploaded
to his phone.

11:24 P.M.
Doyle orders Jack to stand down. Jack shouts back, and the two
enter a standoff. Doyle tells one of the Marines that Jack is
a rogue agent and needs to be taken out. The Marine smacks Jack
with the butt end of his rifle. Jack passes out. Doyle places
Jack under arrest.

11:25 P.M.
Clock ticks.

11:29 P.M.
Doyle calls Buchanan to let him know he has secured Jack.
Buchanan tells Jack that Chloe confessed, but Jack says he would
have never turned over the circuit board to the Chinese. He only
wanted them to see it long enough to give up Audrey. Jack pleads
with Buchanan, but Buchanan rejects the idea. Jack demands to
speak to the President.

11:31 P.M.
Wayne takes the call from Jack, who asks him to authorize a field
operation to save Audrey. Jack explains what the Chinese want and
he promises to destroy the circuit board once he sees Audrey is
safe. Jack gives him his word that he would sacrifice his own
life by using C-4 to bomb the circuit board. Wayne is hesitant,
but Jack reminds him that he was willing to allow the U.S. to use
his own life to barter with the terrorists. "Mr. President, you
owe me," Jack says bluntly. Wayne reluctantly consents. "I will
not fail you," Jack underscores.

11:34 P.M.
Clock ticks.

11:38 P.M.
Doyle gets the word from Buchanan and he uncuffs Jack, who asks
him to help him extract Audrey during the exchange. Jack explains
that once Audrey is safe, he will destroy the circuit board and
kill Cheng.

11:39 P.M.
Morris is surprised when Chloe lets him know the President agreed
to let Jack pursue Audrey with the nuclear trigger circuit. She
makes an unsubtle jibe about the President trusting Jack. Chloe
is upset that Morris didn't trust her. She vows to hold this
grudge over him.

11:40 P.M.
Doyle calls Nadia and she confirms the tracking device on the
circuit board is working. Jack calls Cheng and gets directions
on where to meet.

11:42 P.M.
Doyle questions Jack on why he is risking so much for "this
woman". Jack says that Audrey served the country with honor.

Daniels lets Lisa know he will comply with the President's
request to resign. Lisa apologizes for trying to convince
him to lie about Karen, but he says it's his own fault.
Daniels touches her cheek. "At least we'll have a lot
more time to spend together," he says warmly. Daniels
wants his resignation letter in Wayne's hands by the
end of the press conference.

11:44 P.M.
Wayne announces to the gathered media that Fayed is dead and that
the nukes have been recovered. He thanks law enforcement and the
Armed Services. Wayne starts to struggle with his memory during
the press questions and stammers. Suddenly, his knees buckle and
he falls to the floor. Watching from the gallery, Daniels pockets
his resignation letter.

11:47 P.M.
Clock ticks.

11:52 P.M.
The White House doctor reports to Karen, Lennox and Daniels that
the President suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. Karen maintains
that Wayne still would have agreed to be brought out of the coma
even though it endangered his life. Wayne is being transported to
a hospital. The doctor doesn't think he will regain consciousness

11:54 P.M.
Daniels has the Cabinet notified to enact the 25th Amendment.
Lisa alerts the Vice President that Wayne authorized Jack Bauer
to hand over Russian defense technology to the Chinese in
exchange for release of a hostage. Karen explains that Jack
guaranteed to destroy the military secrets. Despite the hostage
being James Heller's daughter, Daniels orders Karen to have CTU
immediately stop Jack.

11:55 P.M.
Outside the Oval Office, Karen vocalizes her disdain for Daniels
already ignoring Wayne's wishes. Lennox argues that they have no
choice because Daniels is acting President.

11:56 P.M.
Karen calls Buchanan and tells him that Daniels's first order was
to stop Jack. Buchanan reluctantly agrees to halt the mission.

11:57 P.M.
Buchanan has the California Highway Patrol put up roadblocks
to prevent Jack from reaching his destination. He pulls Chloe
off the job because she has shown she can't be trusted.

11:58 P.M.
Buchanan calls Doyle and warns him that Daniels wants Jack
brought back to CTU. He gives Doyle a location to exit the
freeway where he will be met by roadblocks. Buchanan commands
Doyle to disarm Jack.

Doyle tells Jack that CTU provided a detour because of
roadblocks. Jack quickly pulls his gun on Doyle's head.
He warns him that he already killed a former partner and
friend earlier in the day because he was going to thwart
him. "Don't think for a second I won't do that to you,"
Jack says coldly. He orders Doyle to pull over.

11:59 P.M.
Doyle stops the car, and Jack makes him stand against a chain
link fence. Doyle tries to explain that acting-President Daniels
called off the mission. "You can't go against the White House!"
he exclaims, trying to talk some sense into him. Jack pulls
away, leaving Doyle calling after him.

Clock ticks.

12:00 A.M.
Left alone on the highway, Doyle tries to flag down oncoming
cars. One finally stops. He orders the driver out and steals
the car.

12:01 A.M.
Doyle uses the man's cell phone to call CTU. He says he screwed
up and lost Jack. With the tracker on the component board, Morris
gives him Jack's location. Doyle promises to catch Jack before he
disengages the tracking device.

12:02 A.M.
Buchanan announces to the staff that Jack has gone rogue. He asks
Chloe if she can be trusted to work on the task, and she answers

12:03 A.M.
Jack pulls up underneath a set of power lines. He removes the
tracker from the circuit board and drives off.

12:04 A.M.
Morris loses signal on the tracking device. He sees on the
satellite that Jack has been driving alongside the power
lines. He goes to notify Buchanan.

12:05 A.M.
Milo asks Chloe if she thinks that Jack would give up Audrey's
life rather than turn over the circuit board to the Chinese. She
has no answer.

12:06 A.M.
White House Press Secretary Ellen Price briefs the reporters
about Wayne being taken to the hospital. She informs them that
Vice President Daniels will be addressing the nation at 9:00
a.m. eastern time.

12:07 A.M.
Daniels questions Lennox over his plans to use the incriminating
tapes. Lennox says it wasn't his idea to force Daniels to resign.
He only wanted to protect himself and prevent Daniels from
challenging Wayne. Daniels feels relieved that he has Lennox's
support. Lennox gives his word that he won't use the evidence
over him.

12:08 A.M.
Daniels asks Lennox if he thinks Karen will be a detriment
to their plans. Lennox notes that she is smart and provides
balance. Daniels agrees to let her stay.

12:09 A.M.
Jack calls Cheng, telling him that CTU is now looking for him.
Since he knows CTU's satellites, Jack chooses the location for
the trade. Cheng reluctantly agrees to meet Jack in a condemned

Clock ticks.

12:14 A.M.
Despite Karen's appeal for CTU's authority, Daniels charges
Lennox to put all ancillary agencies in pursuit of Jack.

12:15 A.M.
With everyone cleared from the Oval Office, Daniels confesses
to his aide Lisa that, with all that is going on, he can't stop
thinking about her. They kiss. She goes home to pick up a change
of clothes so that she can spend the night with him.

12:16 A.M.
Doyle pulls up near the power lines and sees fresh tire tracks.
He can tell Jack is headed east. Nadia checks which freeways
are in that direction, but Doyle is sure that Jack would take
the one without Caltrans cameras. He asks Nadia to see if
there's any transmission between one of the terrorists'
stolen cell phones and Cheng.

12:17 A.M.
Nadia has Chloe pull anything from that area's cell towers in the
last few minutes. Chloe sends it to Morris, who's annoyed that
she had the information take over his screen without a warning.
He accuses her of being hostile, and they argue about who is to
blame. Milo intercedes with their fight, and Chloe asks for his
help instead of Morris's.

12:18 A.M.
Morris becomes jealous and he and Chloe bicker. While trading
barbs, she makes a crack about him arming the nuclear bomb for
the terrorists. Chloe realizes her gaffe and quickly apologizes.
Yet this hits Morris hard, and he walks away from her.

12:19 A.M.
Karen is warned that Peter Hock from the Department of Justice
is waiting in her office. Lennox cautions her to tread lightly
because Hock has clout on Capitol Hill.

12:20 A.M.
Karen goes to her office and greets Hock. He has been
interrogating Reed Pollock, who claims that Buchanan
held Fayed in custody but then let him go. Reed says
in the video deposition that Karen covered this up
with a "blue code" at Homeland Security to protect
her husband.

12:21 A.M.
Karen explains to Hock that Fayed was apprehended in a border
sweep two years ago but that there was not enough evidence to
keep him. Besides, Fayed was not considered a high-level threat
at the time. It is standard practice to "blue code" these
released people so that they do not have their freedoms stripped.
The only reason Karen resigned from the White House twelve hours
ago instead of having this come out is because she didn't want
the information to be used against the President or her husband
while the country was under attack.

12:22 A.M.
Hock insists that someone will have to be blamed for the
terrorist attacks. He suggests that Buchanan take the fall
because he is farther down the food chain from the President.
Yet Karen knows it will either be her head or Buchanan's on
the chopping block.

12:23 A.M.
Clock ticks.

12:28 A.M.
Jack arrives at the abandoned Calderone Hotel.

12:29 A.M.
After CTU finds Jack's call to Cheng, Nadia tells Doyle. Jack
was traveling on the road that he suspected. Nadia will keep
decrypting the call to find out where he is meeting Cheng.

12:30 A.M.
Buchanan gets a call from Karen, who seems troubled. He says
they are closing in on finding Jack and can't talk. She asks
him to call back when he's free.

12:31 A.M.
Karen goes to see Lennox, rationalizing that Reed is using
anything he can to bargain his way out of the death penalty for
treason. Hock wants to distance the President, and needs either
Karen or Buchanan to be blamed. Lennox says that Buchanan is
already in the crosshairs and will ultimately be responsible
because his signature is on the Fayed release. Karen considers
resigning again, but Lennox advises her to not risk her own job
since she can't save Buchanan.

12:33 A.M.
Jack plants C-4 plastique in the walls of the empty hotel. Then
he calls Buchanan's personal voice mail and leaves a message,
explaining that the circuit board will be incinerated in the
explosion at the Calderone Hotel. Jack wants Buchanan to take
care of Audrey if he doesn't make it out alive.

12:34 A.M.
Clock ticks.

12:39 A.M.
Morris asks Buchanan to be transferred out of the comm unit
because he and Chloe are having problems. Buchanan agrees to
work something out.

12:40 A.M.
Karen calls Buchanan again and tells him that the Justice
Department is "out for blood" about Fayed's original release
even though it was all by-the-book. "I can't let this touch
me," she explains about protecting the Administration. Her
only option is to immediately fire Buchanan. Buchanan is
furious because he didn't do anything wrong. He hangs up
on her. Karen tries calling back, but Buchanan doesn't
pick up.

12:42 A.M.
Doyle checks surface streets for Jack. Suddenly, he sees Jack's
truck parked near an abandoned building.

12:43 A.M.
Buchanan summons Nadia to the conference room and informs her
that he was fired from CTU. She will be taking over.

12:44 A.M.
Buchanan won't explain the circumstances of his departure to
Nadia. "It's just politics," he sighs. Security comes in to
escort Buchanan from the premises.

12:46 A.M.
Nadia announces to the staff that Buchanan has stepped down.
Until Division can send a replacement, she will be acting
director of CTU.

12:47 A.M.
Clock ticks.

12:51 A.M.
Doyle takes weapons and ammo from Jack's truck. He radios CTU
that a limousine has just pulled up and that they should send

12:52 A.M.
Doyle sees Cheng emerge from the limo.

12:53 A.M.
Cheng walks in, demanding the component. Jack refuses until he
can see Audrey. Cheng has his men bring her in. Doyle relays all
of this to CTU.

12:54 A.M.
Audrey's mouth is gagged. Jack removes it, tenderly touching
her face for the first time in almost two years. He apologizes
to her. Jack instructs Cheng to have Audrey walk out alone, away
from the Chinese snipers. Once he knows she is safe, he will hand
over the weapon's circuit board.

12:55 A.M.
Outside the hotel, Doyle sees almost a dozen gunmen surround
the building. He again questions Nadia about the field teams.

Jack tells Audrey to go to a gas station nearby. There will
be a taxi picking her up to take her back to CTU.

12:56 A.M.
Audrey leaves the building alone as the Chinese gunmen train
their weapons on her. Doyle becomes impatient. Nadia tells him
the field teams should be there any minute, but he needs to do
something fast because Jack is about to hand over the circuit

Jack gives Cheng the component. As he is about to detonate the
C-4 plastique, shots ring outside. Doyle has taken out one of
the men. Jack goes to return fire, but is hit in the chest over
his flak jacket.

Suddenly, the CTU chopper and SWAT teams arrive and engage in
a firestorm with the Chinese. Cheng bolts from the hotel to one
of his armored cars and speeds off into the night accompanied by
two exact vehicles. The helicopter follows the three fleeing cars
until it is hit by a missile. It spins out of control.

12:57 A.M.
Cheng gets away. The other two Hummers go in separate directions
as a diversion.

12:58 A.M.
CTU agents apprehend Jack, who tells Doyle that he was all set
to detonate the circuit board. Cheng escaped with the component.
Nadia radios Doyle that Cheng was spotted in one of three black
Hummers that fled into the mountains. More choppers are on their
way. Nadia orders Doyle to place Jack under arrest.

12:59 A.M.
Doyle reluctantly puts Jack in handcuffs. "I had this handled!
Why the hell didn't you listen to me?" Jack pleads.

Audrey is brought back to the hotel. She is mumbling the same
phrase over and over: "Help me, Jack. Please don't let them do
this to me." Jack realizes that she doesn't even recognize him.
The Chinese have done something to her, and Jack insists that
Doyle help her.

Clock ticks.

1:00 A.M.
Doyle tries to get information from Audrey, but she is withdrawn.
She recites the same phrase again.

1:01 A.M.
Nadia starts to feel the pressure of her new job. She tells
Morris that she's not approving his transfer out of comm even
though Buchanan agreed to consider it.

1:03 A.M.
Doyle lets Nadia know that Audrey is suffering from some kind of
post-traumatic reaction after the Chinese captured her. Nadia
orders him to bring Audrey back to CTU. Doyle blames himself
for foiling Jack's plan and losing the Russian circuit board.

1:05 A.M.
As they head out, Jack pleads with Doyle to let him make an
attempt to get through to Audrey since he was recently in the
same position. Instead, Doyle follows orders and puts Jack in
a waiting helicopter to head back to CTU.

1:06 A.M.
Karen urges Daniels to sign an executive order that
will block borders to prevent Cheng from leaving the
country with the component. They want to avoid Russia
blaming the United States for losing its defense against
the Chinese. Daniels confesses to Karen that he values her
and appreciates the sacrifice she had to make in firing her

1:07 A.M.
The Russian president calls for Daniels.

1:08 A.M.
Lisa Miller slips into the apartment of her lover, Mark Bishop.
She tells him that Wayne is still in a coma and that Daniels is
acting president. "Only thing he cares about is pushing his
lunatic foreign agenda," she interjects between kisses. With
little time before she has to head back to the office, the two
make love.

1:09 A.M.
Russian President Suvarov speaks to the White House team via
teleconference. He already knows that the nuclear weapon circuit
boards have fallen into the hands of the Chinese, which will
expose Russian defense technology. Suvarov warns Daniels that he
is prepared to initiate a military response if the Americans do
not retrieve the component.

1:10 A.M.
Since the secret about the stolen circuit board was only exposed
to a few select people, Lennox believes there to be a leak in
either the White House or CTU. The Russian threat is suddenly
very real, so Daniels authorizes CTU to utilize whatever is
necessary to find Cheng.

1:11 A.M.
From his car, Cheng uploads the schematics of the component
to one of his operatives, who sees that the circuit board is
damaged. He cannot fix it without the security override. The
will need to find someone with expertise to assist them.

1:17 A.M.
When Lisa goes into the shower, Bishop takes her PDA and
downloads all of her data onto a drive. He calls his Russian
contact Nikolai and tells him they are set. Bishop confirms
that Lisa has no idea what he is doing.

1:18 A.M.
Chloe corners Morris, who admits that he asked for a transfer
because he is uncomfortable working with her. She crossed the
line when she made a joke about his arming the nuclear bomb.
Morris tells her that they are over for good. Chloe breaks down
in sobs.

1:20 A.M.
Karen alerts Nadia about a potential leak in CTU. Nadia pointedly
asks if Karen fired Buchanan. Karen does not answer her.

1:21 A.M.
Nadia greets Dr. Bradley, a specialist brought in to deal with
Audrey. She orders Doyle to secure Jack and meet her in medical.

Dr. Bradley checks on Audrey, who is unresponsive. He finds
numerous injection track marks on her arm.

1:22 A.M.
As they enter CTU, Jack begs Doyle to let him speak to Audrey.
Yet Doyle places him in a holding cell.

1:23 A.M.
Doyle goes into medical. Dr. Bradley believes that Audrey's
catatonic state stems from the hundreds of pharmacological agents
injected into her. The doctor wants to shock her with more drugs
to wake her up. Doyle rejects this idea, advising them to instead
utilize Jack's relationship with Audrey and his exposure to the
Chinese torture. Bradley thinks Jack could only harm Audrey. He
also has the jurisdiction to overrule Doyle.

1:24 A.M.
Doyle urges Nadia to do what is right, because that's what
Buchanan would have done. Nadia is offended by the remark,
and Doyle notes that an acting director can't be afraid to
step on toes. Nadia disregards his opinion.

1:25 A.M.
Clock ticks.

1:30 A.M.
Daniels calls Lisa's cell and implores her to return to the
White House because there's been a crisis. "I need you," he
says softly. Bishop asks Lisa about what's going on, but she
doesn't know. After she leaves, Bishop calls Nikolai for
further instructions.

1:31 A.M.
Lennox tells Daniels that he has identified the leak. There is
a record of Lisa speaking to a lobbyist named Mark Bishop during
the time they found out the circuit board went missing. Bishop
had been flagged by CIA for having possible contact with Russian
intelligence agents. Daniels is shocked, but Lennox doesn't think
Lisa was willingly giving out information.

1:32 A.M.
Lennox goes on to explain that he has found credit card receipts
showing that Lisa and Bishop have stayed in the same hotel room
several times over the last year. They were having a secret
relationship. Daniels confesses that he is also sleeping with
Lisa. He started the affair after his wife died. Daniels is
shaken, but Lennox is confident that they can turn the situation
to their advantage.

1:34 A.M.
Doyle comes to Jack's holding cell and lets him know that
the doctor tending to Audrey wants to drug her, which could
be harmful. Doyle suggests that Jack do something about it
and he uncuffs him. Jack gets the hint and gently makes Doyle
unconscious. He takes Doyle's keycard and escapes from the
holding cell. Jack punches out the guard on duty and takes
the man's gun.

1:35 A.M.
Jack enters medical and threatens Dr. Bradley to stop whatever
drug treatment he plans to use on Audrey. Jack takes Audrey
from the bed. Bradley sounds the alarm.

1:36 A.M.
Nadia and Milo look up video feed from medical and see that
Audrey is gone. "If you just let Jack talk to Audrey, none of
this would have happened," Milo comments. This stings Nadia.

1:37 A.M.
Clock ticks.

1:41 A.M.
Morris confirms that Jack has not yet left the building. He scans
the various video surveillance feeds. Nadia realizes that Chloe
is gone.

1:42 A.M.
When Doyle wakes up, Nadia accuses him of allowing Jack
to escape on purpose. "I did what I think is best for this
operation and for Audrey Raines," he says sharply. Morris
finds Jack in the lower levels, and Nadia heads to that area.

1:43 A.M.
Jack uses Doyle's keycard to access corridors, and he brings
Audrey into a storage room where the alarm is muted and there
are no cameras. Jack softly tells Audrey that he will protect
her. He appeals to her memory, reminding her of her life facts.

1:44 A.M.
Nadia goes to the door of the storage room with guards but Jack
has disabled the access pad. She asks for an entry team.

1:45 A.M.
Jack asks Audrey if she can remember about the men who took
her. He says he knows what it feels like to be tortured. Jack
hugs her and tells her that he loves her.

1:46 A.M.
Nadia has her guards weld through the storage room door with
an acetylene torch. As the flames make progress on the door
from the inside, Jack begs Audrey for something because the
agents will soon take her away.

1:47 A.M.
Jack trains his gun when Nadia and the agents enter. He demands
a guarantee that Audrey will be safe. Suddenly, Audrey mumbles
the word "Bloomfield." Jack explains that she's answering where
she was held. Dr. Bradley tells Nadia that the word could mean

1:48 A.M.
Nadia radios Morris to search the name. She also tells Bradley
to keep his hands off her witness, and she dismisses him. Nadia
promises Jack that she won't let the doctor touch Audrey. Jack
lowers his gun and allows Doyle take her. He thanks Nadia.

Clock ticks.

1:52 A.M.
Lennox confirms that Suvarov was not bluffing. The Russian Army
is moving troops into Central Asia.

1:53 A.M.
Lisa returns to the White House. Daniels tells her that someone
named Mark Bishop told the Russians that the Chinese have their
component. They have been monitoring Bishop's calls, and he plays
back a tape from ten minutes ago where Bishop says he will access
"her" PDA.

1:54 A.M.
Lisa at first says that Bishop is merely an acquaintance,
but Daniels accuses her of treason even if she didn't know
what was happening. "You didn't just betray me, you betrayed
your country," he growls. Daniels orders her to go back to
Bishop and make him believe that the U.S. has retrieved the
component. He warns her that if she tries to expose their
affair, then he will label her as an enemy combatant.

1:56 A.M.
James Heller is in CTU's medical to see his daughter. He
tells Audrey that he is taking her out of there, but she
remains impassive.

1:57 A.M.
Heller stipulates to Nadia that he wants to see Jack before he
transports Audrey out of CTU.

Doyle informs Nadia that Audrey's word might have some meaning.
There is a Bloomfield Copper Company that used to have a facility
in Los Angeles. Forensics found copper particles on her clothes,
so this may be where Cheng was hiding her. LAPD is locking down
the building but Doyle is heading there now.

1:58 A.M.
Nadia admits to Doyle that he was right. She should have stood
up to Dr. Bradley. "You did, when it counted," he assures her.

1:59 A.M.
Heller enters Jack's holding cell. "I don't want you to go
near my daughter ever again," he says bluntly. Heller blames
Jack for what happened to Audrey. Jack swears that he can help
her and get through to her again, but Heller doesn't want him to
have any part in her life. "You're cursed, Jack," Heller says,
"Everything you touch, one way or another, ends up dead."

Clock ticks.

2:00 A.M.
Heller leaves with Audrey, planning to file a restraining order
against Jack. Even though he is under arrest, Jack begs Nadia to
let him go with the field agents when they raid the Bloomfield
facility because he knows how Cheng works. "I gave President
Palmer my word that I would destroy that component before I let
it fall into enemy hands," he says. "Give me a chance to keep my
word." Nadia refuses him.

2:03 A.M.
Jack eyes the two guards manning his room. Nadia warns him that
she will have him put in restraints if he tries to escape.
Resigned to his fate, Jack offers to help run tactical from
CTU. Nadia promises to take it up with the new division chief
who will be replacing her.

2:05 A.M.
Milo notices that Chloe's eyes are red from crying. Morris
announces that they have split up, but they are still being

2:06 A.M.
Doyle prepares his tac team to move out to the Bloomfield
facility. Nadia gives them marching orders and stresses the
severity of their mission.

2:07 A.M.
Doyle is impressed with Nadia's command of the moment, and tells
her that she is doing a good job. When she advises him to be
careful, they trade a prolonged look. This is not lost on Milo,
who watches from the main floor. Nadia avoids making eye contact
with Milo.

2:08 A.M.
Cheng assembles an outside team that resembles a Chinese street
gang. His operative questions whether the men can handle the job,
but Cheng needs to maintain deniability by using outside forces.
Cheng tells Zhou, the leader of the gang, that he wants to attack
the "target" in fifteen minutes.

Clock ticks.

2:13 A.M.
In a CTU lounge area, Marilyn and Josh watch news footage. He is
upset that his father was involved in killing twelve thousand
people. Josh wishes he was never born into this "sick family".
Marilyn assures him that he is not Graem. She shuts the
television and urges him to get some sleep.

2:15 A.M.
Chloe comes to see Marilyn and tells her about what happened with
Jack and Audrey.

2:16 A.M.
As Daniels and Lennox listen in, Lisa Miller calls Bishop and
tells him that the crisis with the Russians was averted. She
suggests coming over so that they can pick up where they left

2:17 A.M.
Lennox instructs her to give Bishop time to access her PDA. They
have uploaded fake memos stating that a Chinese agent who tried
to smuggle Russian weapons was taken out with a military strike.
They want Bishop to relay the news to his Russian contact so that
President Suvarov will call off his attack. Lisa isn't sure she
can be with Bishop pretending nothing's wrong. Daniels notes that
she spent the last year lying to him with no problem.

2:18 A.M.
Marilyn apologizes to Jack for telling him that Audrey was dead.
When she inquires more, Jack becomes upset and doesn't want to
talk about it anymore. Marilyn asks if she can bring Josh to see
him before they leave CTU. She promises to be there for Jack when
it's all over.

Jack asks Chloe about the mission to obtain the component. She
guarantees that they'll get it back.

2:19 A.M.
Zhou questions that there is only one entry point for their
target. Cheng confirms that this will allow them to be in the
perfect position for a strike. He says their objective is to
"obtain the package" and not to cause casualties.

2:20 A.M.
Doyle and his team arrive at the Bloomfield plant and get into

Zhou and his men start filing into an underground sewer drain to
access their target.

2:22 A.M.
Doyle calls Nadia and tells her that the place is empty. Yet
there is evidence that the Chinese have weaponry for a major
assault. "Assault on what?" Nadia asks.

Zhou and his men make their way through the sewers. Cheng gives
him directions to the entrance point beneath CTU.

Clock ticks.

Morris asks Chloe a work-related question and she is mean
to him. She apologizes because she's having a hard time with
their breakup even though he is trying to be professional. She
emphasizes that she doesn't believe he acted cowardly. Morris
didn't end their relationship because of what she said. He was
ashamed of arming that bomb.

2:30 A.M.
Outside Bishop's apartment, Lisa confesses that she is
frightened. Lennox reminds her that if she fails, she
will face charges of treason. She takes a bag with a
surveillance camera and heads in.

2:32 A.M.
Lennox gives Daniels notice that Lisa has gone into Bishop's
place. Daniels is worried that Lisa won't be able to pull it off.

2:33 A.M.
Lisa is uncomfortable when she kisses Bishop at his door.
She claims that she's tense because of everything that's
happened at the White House. Lisa lets her purse flop open
so that the camera inside can get a view.

2:34 A.M.
Lisa tries to go into the bathroom to freshen up, but Bishop
mentions that she recently showered at his apartment. She
attempts to leave the room again, and Bishop doesn't let
her go. He begins undressing her and tosses her onto the
bed. They make love while the camera watches.

2:35 A.M.

Zhou and his team get to the sewer underneath CTU. He sets
off charges, which allows Cheng's operative to access the
CTU security system.

2:40 A.M.
Nadia tells Milo that she knows he was unhappy when she was
talking to Doyle. He tells her it's alright if there's something
going on between them. Nadia admits that she doesn't know what
she feels and asks for time to sort it out.

2:41 A.M.
After back-tracking the satellite, Chloe spots Cheng's men
escaping in cars. Suddenly, Nadia can't get through to Doyle
on the radio and Milo cannot access any outside lines. They
don't know that Cheng has overridden their system.

2:42 A.M.
Zhou and his men set an explosion in the sewer. They begin
climbing up.

Everyone at CTU realizes their communication is shut down.
Security cameras have lost visual surveillance. Nadia calls for
a Code Red emergency lockdown.

2:43 A.M.
Zhou's men reach the building. They take out the CTU security
guards and descend upon the main floor. Nadia instructs her
workers to run to their assigned safe rooms. Jack hears gunfire
from his holding cell and begs the guard on duty to let him. The
guard opens the door, but one of the gunmen shoots him. Jack
grabs the guard's gun and kills the gunman.

2:44 A.M.
Zhou orders the CTU hostages to give him their cell phones. He
has one of his men run a headcount, filter all communication
coming in and shut off the building alarm.

In the basement, Jack takes out more gunmen. He grabs one of the
assault rifles from the bodies and makes his way upstairs.

2:45 A.M.
Zhou asks who is in charge. Before Nadia can say anything, Milo
identifies himself as the person in command. Zhou shoots him in
the forehead. Milo collapses, dead.

and Marilyn. One radios Zhou that the boy escaped. They
take Jack and Marilyn down to the main floor.

2:53 A.M.
Josh makes his way into the depths of the air vent tunnels.
Zhou has the ventilation system cut. Cheng demands that they
find Josh.

2:54 A.M.
After Doyle makes several attempts to call CTU, one of Zhou's
men suggests they respond to deflect attention. Zhou checks the
roster and sees that Nadia is really the ranking officer. He has
her speak to Doyle and tell him they've had problems with their
communication system. Zhou threatens to kill her and everyone
there if she gives Doyle any warning. Nadia doesn't say anything
out of the ordinary, but Doyle hears the tension in her voice.
She hangs up.

2:55 A.M.
Jack is brought to the floor with Marilyn. He demands to know
what they want with Josh. Zhou slugs him in the gut with his

2:56 A.M.

take him to a safe place. Marilyn tries to scream. Zhou warns
Josh that if he doesn't show himself, they will kill his mother.

Zhou counts to ten. Josh quickly backtracks in the air duct. He
reaches one of the gunmen before Zhou shoots Marilyn. Zhou lets
Cheng know that they have the boy.

2:58 A.M.
Josh is brought to the main floor.

2:59 A.M.
Cheng calls Phillip Bauer to tell him that his men have secured
Josh. Jack and Marilyn are also alive. Cheng thanks him for the
codes to access the CTU security system. Phillip is almost done
repairing the circuit board for the nuclear trigger. "I'll return
it when you bring me my grandson," Phillip says. They agree to
meet at a rendezvous point.

Clock ticks,

3:00 A.M.
As Zhou sends Josh to Cheng, Marilyn becomes hysterical. Zhou is
about to shoot her, but Jack tries calming her down. Zhou orders
him to keep Marilyn quiet. He announces to the hostages that they
are being put in a secure room.

3:02 A.M.
Josh is dragged back down the tunnel of sewers that the gunmen
emerged from.

3:03 A.M.
Zhou breaks the hostages up into two groups. Jack tells Marilyn
that he will attempt to go after Josh, and he needs her to get in
the front of her group. She does what he asks.

3:04 A.M.
Jack whispers to Nadia that they will need to make a move before
everyone is locked up in holding or else they will never retrieve
the component. They both stay at the rear of the group and take
out the two guards at the back. Morris, who is nearby, grabs
another guy. Jack breaks Zhou's neck.

3:05 A.M.
Suddenly, Doyle appears. He and his tac team save Jack and secure
the CTU hostages.

3:06 A.M.
Jack tells Doyle that he doesn't know why Cheng is after his
nephew. He asks for a communication setup, but Nadia notes that
is still technically under arrest. Jack explains that he knows
this building better than anyone. She allows his release, but has
him follow Doyle's command.

3:07 A.M.
Nadia regretfully tells Doyle that Milo was killed. He asks how
she's doing, but Jack interrupts them. Nadia gives him her cell
phone since their comm is down. Jack commends her for what she's

A shaken Chloe tells Nadia that what she did was brave.

3:08 A.M.
Jack, Doyle and the tac team head into the sewer after the gunmen
and Josh.

Clock ticks.

3:13 A.M.
The gunmen arrive in the warehouse. Josh is handed off to Cheng,
who calls Phillip and hands the phone to Josh. Josh reminds his
grandfather that he threatened to kill him a few hours ago.
Phillip swears he would never hurt him. He intends to take him to
China to protect him. He wants to give Josh a future in a country
that will surpass America.

3:14 A.M.
Josh pleads with Cheng not to deliver him to Phillip. "Your
grandfather is a visionary," Cheng assures him. "You should be
grateful for the opportunity." Cheng loads Josh into a car and
they start to drive off.

3:15 A.M.
As the car pulls away, Jack emerges from the hole and fires at
Cheng's vehicles. Doyle and the tac team also shoot at the
Chinese gunmen who have emptied from the cars. Cheng grabs Josh
like a shield and runs. Jack warns his men to cover him as he
goes after them.

3:16 A.M.
Jack continues to chase Cheng, who is flanked by one of his men
and pulling Josh. Jack radios to Doyle that they are headed to
the roof of the building. Josh kicks Cheng and manages to break
free from his grasp. When Jack takes out the guard, Cheng's
attention is diverted and he loses Josh in the darkness.

3:18 A.M.
Jack traps Cheng at gunpoint. Suddenly, Josh falls and calls out
for help as he hangs by a wire over the edge. Jack looks down and
Cheng escapes. With Cheng gone, Jack goes to save Josh. He pulls
the boy up to safety.

3:19 A.M.
Josh tells Jack that he spoke to Phillip who wanted to take him
to China because he was his legacy. Jack promises to take him
back to his mother.

3:20 A.M.
When Doyle arrives on the roof, Jack has him warn CTU that his
father is still involved in the situation. Doyle wonders what
Phillip's connection is to the Chinese. "I'll ask him when I find
him," Jack says confidently.

Clock ticks.

3:25 A.M.
Karen alerts the Vice President that the Russians have moved
their troops within striking distance of American bases in
Central Asia. Daniels reluctantly tells her about Lennox
attempting to trap Bishop, who was getting information from an
unwitting Lisa. Since Karen feels like she was purposefully left
out of the loop, Daniels admits that he was ashamed to tell her
that he was also sleeping with Lisa too. Karen tries to assuage
him, but Daniels is worried that his lapse in judgment could
bring the country to war.

3:28 A.M.
From the surveillance van, Lennox and the Secret Service agents
uncomfortably watch the video feed of Lisa making love to Bishop.

3:29 A.M.
When they're finished, Bishop asks Lisa why she is distant. She
claims to be tired, and she goes into the bathroom.

3:30 A.M.
Lennox and the agents see Bishop go to Lisa's purse and take out
her PDA. Yet Bishop doesn't download the information.

3:31 A.M.
Bishop forcefully demands to know from Lisa what is going on. She
smashes a bottle of wine over his head and accuses him of spying
on her to the Russians. Lennox and the agents quickly exit the
van. Bishop smacks Lisa.

3:33 A.M.
Bishop grabs Lisa by the throat and she falls unconscious. Lennox
and the agents break down the door and take him off her. Lennox
explains that they have evidence of him spying for the Russians.
He orders Bishop to upload the phony emails from Lisa's PDA and
call his employer to back up the story. If he doesn't comply,
Lennox assures him he will get the death penalty.

3:34 A.M.
Cheng lets Phillip know that he lost Josh. Phillip is angry, and
says that he will not give Cheng the repaired circuit board.
Cheng threatens him, but Phillip is not afraid and will enact
even worse consequences if he is threatened again.

Clock ticks.

3:39 A.M.
Amidst the chaos of trying to get CTU back in order, a team from
Division arrives to assess the security breach. The group leader,
Ben Kram, informs Nadia that it is her poor leadership that cost
the lives of CTU staff. She quietly succumbs to his requests.

3:41 A.M.
Morris approaches Nadia, telling her not to let the Division
people get to her because she wasn't responsible for what
happened. She feels guilty and is willing to take the blame.
Nadia knows that she hesitated when Milo stepped up to identify
himself as the head of CTU. She was just afraid. Morris says that
Milo would have wanted her to stay strong and in charge.

3:43 A.M.
Lennox alerts Daniels that the planted memo has been sent to
Bishop's Russian contact. Lennox advises the Vice President to
call President Suvarov to confirm that fake information. He also
says that Lisa suffered some brain damage when Bishop choked her.

3:44 A.M.
Despite Daniels's feelings for Lisa, Karen makes the Vice
President focus on the urgent matter at hand. She goes to
set up a teleconference with the Russian president.

3:45 A.M.
There's no sign of Cheng on satellite. He has escaped. Jack calls
Marilyn to let her know that Phillip wanted to take Josh. He is
bringing her son back to CTU.

3:46 A.M.
On teleconference, Daniels proudly informs Suvarov that they
weresuccessful in taking out the Chinese agents and that the
component was destroyed. Suvarov knows that the documentation
sent to one of his spies was falsified because his people were
watching Bishop's apartment and saw the raid. Suvarov threatens
to attack an American military base if they do not come up with
proof that the component is destroyed. He gives Daniels two
hours. "It was all for nothing," Daniels whispers to Karen.
"We're about to go to war over a piece of circuitry."

3:50 A.M.
Clock ticks.

3:54 A.M.
Lennox returns to the White House and is about to enter an urgent
military briefing when he receives a cell phone call. Lennox
interrupts the meeting and pulls Daniels and Karen aside. He
hands the phone to Daniels because Phillip Bauer is calling.

3:55 A.M.
Phillip demands his grandson and clear passage to the country of
his choice in return for the circuit board. He notes that the
Chinese squandered their chance with him. Phillip provides the
serial number as proof that he has it. "I'm offering you the
opportunity of avoiding a conflict this country does not want,"
he says.

3:56 A.M.
Karen questions why the Vice President would negotiate with
a sociopath who is wanted for selling nuclear weapons to
terrorists. Lennox agrees, but realizes they have no other
choice but to take the risk.

3:57 A.M.
Lennox wonders if Suvarov is being squeezed by his military to
engage in warfare. There are many anti-American generals left
over from the Soviet regime who just want a reason to pull the
trigger. The need to retrieve the circuit board has become even
more pressing. Daniels asks to be put through to CTU.

3:59 A.M.
As they are about to get into a car to go back to CTU, Josh
asks Jack what he will do to Phillip when he finds him. "I
promise you he will never threaten you or your mother again,"
Jack says. Suddenly, Doyle grabs Josh and takes him onto a
waiting helicopter as agents detain Jack. Doyle explains to
Jack that he has orders. Jack is being held down as Josh calls
out for him. The helicopter flies off with Doyle and Josh inside.

Clock ticks.

4:00 A.M.
As the helicopter heads west, Josh expresses confusion about why
he's not being taken to CTU. Doyle says that he will be given to
his grandfather in order to prevent a war. Doyle injects Josh's
wrist with a tracking device and promises to save him.

4:01 A.M.
Jack pleads with the agents detaining him that it is wrong to
give Josh to Phillip. However, their orders are to bring him
to a detention facility.

4:02 A.M.
Jack calls Chloe, who explains that Phillip made a deal with
Daniels to exchange the Russian sub-circuit board for Josh and
safe passage out of the country. Doyle intends to rescue Josh
once the trade is over. Jack knows that Phillip has no intention
of giving up the component or Josh.

4:04 A.M.
Daniels begs President Suvarov for forgiveness and asks him to
rescind the military that is ready to attack. Daniels informs him
that he is making a trade with the man who has the circuit board.

4:05 A.M.
Karen excuses herself from the Oval Office when her cell phone
rings. It's Jack.

4:06 A.M.
Jack tries to convince Karen not to bargain with Josh. He
believes Phillip will not give up the circuit board because
it's his only leverage against the Chinese. Although Karen
agrees with him, the Vice President feels it is the only way
to avoid war. Jack cannot do anything because he is in CTU
custody. He demands that Karen do whatever is necessary to
stop the trade.

4:07 A.M.
Karen tells Lennox that Jack is convinced Phillip will find
a way to prevent the U.S. from retrieving the circuit board.
She asks Lennox to circumvent Daniels, but Lennox is wary of
doing so because he already distrusts him. Lennox agrees to
look the other way if she goes behind the Vice President's back.

4:09 A.M.
Buchanan is at home when his cell phone rings. He sees that
it's Karen and doesn't pick up. FBI agents are going through
his personal belongings under order of a subpoena. The home
phone rings and Buchanan hears Karen appealing to him for
help. He picks up, and Karen details Jack's dilemma. Karen
asks Buchanan to do whatever it takes to stop the exchange
for Josh.

4:10 A.M.
The CTU staff watches on satellite as their chopper lands at the
beach. Doyle unloads Josh and they wait under a light post.

4:11 A.M.
Doyle's phone rings, and Morris patches into the cell so that
they can listen. Phillip instructs Doyle to have CTU shut down
their satellite feed because he is inside their system. Morris
confirms this is true, but he doesn't know how. He closes the
satellite feed. Fortunately, Phillip cannot see the tracking
system implanted on Josh.

4:13 A.M.
Phillip sees the satellite go off, and he orders Doyle to dismiss
the helicopter. Doyle puts Josh on the phone. Josh tells his
grandfather that he hates him. Phillip exhorts that he will
not be safe in America because of Graem's involvement in the
terrorist plot. He says he is the only one capable of making
Josh the kind of man his father should have been.

4:14 A.M.
Phillip hangs up and has men go pick up Josh.

4:15 A.M.
Clock ticks.

4:19 A.M.
Nadia tells Doyle that they haven't yet figured out how to
circumvent Phillip's tapping into the satellite. Chloe preps
Doyle to upload the component's data to his PDA so that she can
confirm its veracity.

4:20 A.M.
Doyle tells Nadia that he plans to retrieve Josh if he sees
a chance. She orders him not to do that.

4:21 A.M.
Karen calls Nadia with a request to view the internal deployment
grid in order to track Jack's transfer to a detention facility.
Nadia is annoyed, but gives Karen the security code to access the

Marilyn Bauer causes a commotion when she demands to see her son.

Nadia tries to calm a hysterical Marilyn, telling her that Josh
is being held at Division for questioning. Marilyn knows that he
is a minor and that she needs to be with him. She threatens to
call her lawyers.

4:23 A.M.
Nadia has Morris send additional security to deal with Marilyn.
Chloe questions why Morris is obediently following orders when he
knows it isn't right to put Josh at risk.

4:24 A.M.
Morris tells Doyle that he believes what he is doing is
absolutely necessary. "The next time I want your opinion
I'll ask for it," Doyle snaps.

4:25 A.M.
A truck drives head-on toward the SUV carrying Jack. The CTU
vehicle swerves off the road. As the driving agent goes to
investigate, Jack steals the second agent's gun and forces
the man to handcuff himself. Buchanan emerges from the truck
with his hands raised. He asks for Jack to be released. Jack
sees that Buchanan is causing a decoy. He emerges from the
car and knocks the agent out.

4:26 A.M.
Buchanan briefs Jack that Doyle is still waiting with Josh for
instructions from Phillip. They leave in Buchanan's truck.

Clock ticks.

4:31 A.M.
Stuart Pressman arrives at CTU to collect his brother Milo's
body. Chloe hugs him.

4:32 A.M.
Karen is surprised when her clearance to CTU's grid is blocked.
She calls Buchanan, who confirms that he has Jack. Karen thanks
him for his sacrifice. She says that her denied access means that
they've already pegged her as the source. Karen apologizes for
all that's happened and says goodbye to her husband. The Secret
Service arrives at her office to detain her.

4:34 A.M.
Nadia admits to Stuart Pressman that Milo died while saving
her life. Stuart acknowledges that Milo was in love with her.

4:35 A.M.
Chloe alerts Nadia that Jack escaped with help from Buchanan.
Chloe spitefully references that Buchanan agreed with Jack about
not using Josh as a pawn. Nadia orders tac teams to intercept
Buchanan and Jack.

4:36 A.M.
Josh begs Doyle not to hand him over to his "crazy" grandfather.
Doyle gives his word that he will get him back.

4:37 A.M.
Nadia radios Doyle that Jack has escaped and is on his way there,
aided by Karen and Buchanan. They can't move tac teams in because
of Phillip's demands. Doyle says he will handle Jack by himself.

4:38 A.M.
Clock ticks.

4:41 A.M.
Daniels comes to see Karen in a Secret Service holding cell. She
admits matter-of-factly to using secure information in order to
help Buchanan break Jack from custody. Karen says she learned
one thing from dealing with Fayed -- never negotiate with a
sociopath. They cannot trust that Phillip will turn over the
component. Daniels promises to hold her and Buchanan to the
strictest punishment. Karen swears that Lennox knew nothing
about what she was doing. Daniels says that Karen will
be held responsible if the Russians attack their bases.

4:43 A.M.
Phillip calls Doyle and instructs him to walk with Josh toward
the shoreline.

4:44 A.M.
In the darkness, a small boat comes to shore with two men in
commando wetsuits. Doyle approaches one with his gun raised. The
man shows the sub-circuit board and places it on the ground. When
Doyle picks it up, the component explodes in his face and he is
thrown back. The man grabs Josh and runs back to the boat.

4:46 A.M.
Jack and Buchanan pull up and see Josh being taken away. They
don't have a clear shot without putting Josh at risk. The men in
the boat fire back as they pull out into the water with Josh in
tow. Jack tends to Doyle, whose face is bloodied.

4:47 A.M.
Phillip has his men scan Josh, and they locate the homing device
in his arm. They short it out. From her system, Chloe sees that
they have lost track of Josh. Morris puts the satellite back up.

4:48 A.M.
Jack phones Nadia and tells her that the component was a fake and
that Doyle is badly injured. She is upset by this.

Clock ticks.

4:53 A.M.
Lost in thought, Daniels laments that he unfairly judged Wayne's
handling of the terrorist situation in the past few weeks. Lennox
notes that, since Karen was proven right, he may want to pardon
her in order to not let his misjudgment come out into the open.
Daniels says he will consider it later.

4:55 A.M.
The trauma team arrives on the scene and determines that Doyle
will probably be blind in at least one eye. "I should have
listened to you, Jack," Nadia says with remorse. Jack believes
that the small boat must be meeting up with a larger vessel.
Suddenly, he has an epiphany. Jack asks for locations of oil
platforms in the ocean nearby. His father's company has shelter
corporations that own oil properties.

As Chloe goes to research oil rigs in the area, Morris notices
that she is looking pallid.

4:56 A.M.
Phillip and Cheng wait at the Tomol Oil platform in the middle
of the Pacific. Phillip agrees to hand over the repaired circuit
board when he gets his grandson. "Your mistakes have been totally
unacceptable," Phillip says. "But China is still my future."

4:58 A.M.
As Chloe works, her vision becomes blurry. She faints. Morris
rushes to her side and calls out for help.

Clock ticks.

5:00 A.M.
The boat carrying Josh arrives at the oil platform. Josh is
angry, but Phillip wants to take him away for his own sake.
Josh becomes terrified when Cheng informs Phillip that the
submarine will be picking them up in a half hour.

5:02 A.M.
As medics work on Doyle, Jack and Buchanan wait for word from

5:03 A.M.
Morris tends to Chloe in the CTU clinic. The doctor has
determined that she is dehydrated and exhausted. Morris
doesn't want to leave her side, but Chloe insists he go
back to work. Morris reluctantly leaves.

5:04 A.M.
Nadia finds an oil platform that has been decommissioned and
leased by Phillip's company. Morris runs a thermal scan on it
from the satellite. Sure enough, he spots the boat pulling up
to it.

5:05 A.M.
Morris checks in with the doctor, who cannot release Chloe's
health information to him because he is no longer family.

5:06 A.M.
Lennox alerts the Vice President that CTU has spotted Phillip
Bauer on satellite. Defense Secretary Kanin recommends to Daniels
that an air assault would take out the entire oil platform
leaving no trace of the component. Lennox is concerned that Josh
would not survive an aerial attack, but Daniels believes the boy
would be a necessary casualty to prevent an all-out war with
Russia. He orders the F-18 planes to strike.

5:07 A.M.
As Doyle is loaded onto an ambulance, he apologizes to Jack for
not listening to him. Nadia calls Jack to let him know that the
White House has ordered an air attack on the oil rig to take
place in less than thirty minutes. She cannot stop it. Nadia
orders him and Buchanan back to CTU for a debriefing. Jack
agrees on the phone.

5:08 A.M.
When Jack hangs up, he tells Buchanan that he is going to use
the CTU helicopter to save Josh because it's wrong to sacrifice
an innocent kid. Knowing he doesn't want that hanging over his
head as well, Buchanan offers to fly the chopper. Jack's look
expresses his appreciation.

5:10 A.M.
The two get in the helicopter that was intended to bring
them back to CTU. Jack draws his gun on the pilot. "We're
commandeering your helicopter," he says brusquely. The pilot
exits the aircraft, and Buchanan takes over the controls. They
take off.

Clock ticks.

5:14 A.M.
The Navy F-18s head towards the oil platform.

5:15 A.M.
Secretary Kanin warns Daniels that Russian troops are in
formation around the U.S. base. Daniels asks President
Suvarov to hold off attacking their base because he is
planning an operation to take out the person with the

5:16 A.M.
Russia intercepts a transmission to a Chinese submarine that is
headed to the west coast of America to recover the component.
This confirms what Daniels is planning. Daniels assures Suvarov
that the air strike is the only way to destroy the component.
Daniels gives him a real-time feed of the assault operation.

5:17 A.M.
Morris notifies Nadia that Jack hijacked the CTU helicopter with
Buchanan and he also wants access to their satellite feed.

5:18 A.M.
Nadia radios Jack, saying she cannot authorize his suicide
mission. Buchanan chimes in to tell her that what they're
doing is the right decision. This hits Nadia hard, and she
gives in to Jack's request. "You did the right thing,"
Buchanan says gratefully.

Jack instructs Buchanan to come in low so that they can hit the
oil rig from the air and land safely on it.

The F-18s lock their radar onto the target.

5:19 A.M.
A despondent Josh pleads with his grandfather to let him go.
Phillip says it is his responsibility to teach him the right
things. Cheng's men spot the CTU helicopter coming towards them.
Cheng cautions Phillip to board a small boat. Its locator beacon
will be picked up by the sub. Cheng hands Phillip the circuit
board and goes outside to see about the chopper.

5:20 A.M.
As they reach the platform, Buchanan dives the chopper so that
Jack can fire with a machine gun at the men on the deck. Buchanan
raises the chopper and is able to land on an upper level.

5:21 A.M.
Jack and Buchanan get out and shoot at the oil containers to
cause explosions near the gunmen. Cheng is knocked down, and Jack
demands to know where Josh is. "It's too late," Cheng says. Jack
has Buchanan take Cheng back to the chopper while he goes looking
for his nephew. Buchanan forewarns him that there are only ten
minutes until the F-18s arrive.

5:22 A.M.
Clock ticks.

5:26 A.M.
Phillip drags the crying Josh towards the boat and rebukes
him for behaving like a child. Josh lashes out physically,
and Phillip stops him with a warning that he should not let
his emotions control him.

5:27 A.M.
Jack makes his way across the deck, taking out gunmen as he
searches for the boy.

5:28 A.M.
Phillip and Josh arrive at the side of the oil rig. Phillip puts
down his gun so that he can lower the boat into the water. Josh
grabs the gun and smacks his grandfather in the back of the head
with a tool. "I'm not going with you," Josh cries. Phillip pleads
that he is only doing it because he loves him. Josh fires the
gun, hitting Phillip in the shoulder.

5:29 A.M.
Phillip falls back, but is still alive. Jack arrives at the scene
and implores Josh to lower the gun because he understands the
pain of taking another person's life. Jack pulls the boy in an
embrace and takes the weapon. He quickly sends Josh to the
waiting helicopter.

5:30 A.M.
Jack trains his gun on Phillip, who entreats his son to kill him.
Jack refuses. "You are going to be held accountable for what you
have done today!" he yells. Yet Phillip notes that Jack will not
have time to carry him with the impending air strike. He knows
Jack won't want to die alongside him, and Jack realizes he is
right. "You're gonna get off easy," Jack says resignedly as he
walks away, leaving Phillip to die.

5:31 A.M.

of the strain on their relationship.

5:35 A.M.

over the darkness. Josh is relieved to see Jack swim towards the

Clock ticks.

The Chinese recall their submarines, and Daniels wants China to
know that the Americans are aware of their activities. Daniels
says he will address the Chinese another day. Lennox advises the
Vice President to allow Karen and Buchanan to resign with their

incriminated him trying to take down Wayne.

James Heller is at his Pacific Palisades home, dealing with
the stress of the day and his daughter's recovery. Jack arrives
silently in the house, his wet clothes still clinging to his
body. Jack asks for Audrey, raising his gun when Heller refuses.
Jack says that he watched his father die and didn't feel anything
because the man was dead to him long ago. He expresses his rage
at being betrayed by Heller, whom he once looked up to and

5:50 A.M.
"The only thing I have ever done is what you and people like you
have asked of me," Jack says steely. He asks why Heller didn't
try hard enough to get him out of China because he was the one
with the power to accomplish it. He accuses Heller of being angry
that Audrey went to save him even though he forbade her to do so.
Jack says that Heller doesn't understand that kind of loyalty.

5:52 A.M.
"I want my life back and I want it now," Jack painfully demands.
"Audrey's all I've got." He threatens to disappear with her and
kill anyone who tries to stop them. Heller remarks that Jack
could never walk away from this lifestyle, and he will bring
down Audrey like he did with his own wife. Jack bristles at the

take care of Audrey like she deserves. Jack once again demands to
see her. Heller leads him to the bedroom.

says. He tells Audrey that the only way to protect her is to let
her go. Jack says he loves her, and kisses Audrey on the

5:59 A.M.
Jack quietly moves past Heller out of the room and leaves the
house. With the gun still in his hand, Jack walks towards the
edge of the property that faces the Pacific Ocean. He looks down
at the cliff beneath him, standing alone at the precipice. With
anguish etched on his face, he stares out to the ocean,
contemplating what lies ahead.

Silent clock.
