A l’intérieur de la mosquée, c’est l’effervescence : on recherche Ali, en vain. Dans les vêtements du cadavre carbonisé, on trouve un bout de papier en piteux état : des clichés du document sont envoyés à la CAT. L’imam de la mosquée, qui peine à comprendre ce qui lui arrive, promet de coopérer. Soudain, une trappe qui n’était présente sur aucun plan est découverte : Jack décide d’aller seul dans le sous-sol humide.

Au même moment, Ali, affolé, appelle Marie Warner et la prévient de la situation : il lui demande d’être « à l’endroit prévu » dans 30 minutes… Au moment où Sayed Ali raccroche, il entend un bruit à quelques mètres : Bauer le prend par surprise et arrive à lui ôter le cyanite qu’il avait dans la bouche.

Ali, identifié par Kate, est fait prisonnier, et son portable va être analysé. A la CAT, Bob Warner commence à se rendre compte de la situation : il essaie d’analyser les comportements de sa fille, à l’aune de ces évènements. A l’époque où la famille était à Londres, le choc provoqué par la mort de sa mère l’aurait mené, lors d’une longue fugue, vers la radicalisation, puis vers le terrorisme ; tout ceci sans éveiller de véritables soupçons auprès du reste de la famille.

Pendant ce temps, le bout de papier commence à être analysé par Randy Murdoch, un spécialiste de l’imagerie virtuelle. Au QG militaire, la torture de Stanton continue, sans résultat. Mais Mike et le Président s’accordent à dire que « tout le monde finit par craquer », malgré le fait que Stanton est censé être préparé à ce genre d’interrogatoire et y résister. A la CAT, Tony met tout en œuvre pour retrouver Kim, mais Mason ne veut pas gâcher de l’énergie et des ressources pour trouver une personne qui est d’ores et déjà hors de portée de la bombe. On constate par ailleurs que Mason est de plus en plus mal en point. Kim, quant à elle, est libéré du piège par un ranger qui passe par là.

Ce dernier, voit qu’elle a des problèmes : il lui propose de passer la nuit chez lui ; ce qu’elle accepte… A la mosquée, l’interrogatoire de Sayed Ali se prépare, mais ce dernier est violent et semble ne rien vouloir dire. L’imam vient supplier Ali de parler, insistant sur la mauvaise interprétation du Coran que font les terroristes : Ali ricane et continue de clamer qu’il n’a pas peur de mourir en martyr.

Parallèlement, on apprend quel est le numéro appelé en dernier par Ali : Kate, qui a tendu l’oreille, reconnaît le numéro de sa sœur, mais n’ose y croire. Bauer lui explique alors les présumés agissements de Marie, mais Kate refuse de prendre ces accusations au sérieux.

Jack lui propose alors d’appeler sa sœur, afin de localiser le numéro, et afin que Kate vérifie par elle-même le comportement suspect de Marie. Le téléphone de Marie sonne : Kate commence par s’excuser de tout ce qu’elle a provoqué. Mais Marie, devinant qu’elle est démasquée, hausse d’un ton et lui demande « s’ils ont trouvé Reza ». Kate découvre la triste réalité et demande à sa sœur pourquoi elle fait tout ce mal. « Tu ne pourrais pas comprendre », lui dit en substance Marie, avant de lancer son portable par la vitre de sa voiture.

Les agents ont réussi à tracer l’appel. Au même moment, à la CAT, le document commence à livrer ses secrets : « N34 » constituent pour l’instant les seuls caractères à avoir pu être déchiffrés. Immédiatement, on met Jack au courant, qui s’empresse d’aller retrouver Ali et de le harceler à ce sujet. Il menace de tuer toute sa famille en cas de refus de parler : on voit des écrans où apparaissent sa femme et ses enfants, pris en otages par des forces spéciales.

Palmer est mis au courant de cette menace : il refuse que des innocents soient tués et demande à Jack que cela cesse (malgré les conseils de Mike). Jack en prend acte, mais, devant Ali, il feint d’avoir l’accord de Palmer et se prépare à exécuter Hassad, un des fils du terroriste.

Au QG, Mike Novick et Lynne Kriesge sont en pleine discussion : selon Lynne, Sherry Palmer et Roger Stanton communiqueraient régulièrement depuis 6 mois. Ce qui sous-entendrait que l’ex-femme du Président serait impliqué dans la trahison. Mais Mike, qui conseille à Lynne de ne rien dire à Palmer pour le moment, a du mal à imaginer Sherry en traîtresse.

Pour être certaine de ces informations, Lynne a rendez-vous 10 minutes plus tard avec sa source, à l’extérieur du QG. Pendant ce temps, Bauer donne l’ordre aux agents concernés de tuer le premier fils de Sayed Ali : ce dernier voit sur l’écran de contrôle son fils Hassad se faire assassiner. Ali est profondément meurtri, mais les harcèlements de Bauer n’y font rien : le terroriste reste muet. A l’extérieur du QG, on voit Lynne Kriesge se diriger vers un parc : au lieu d’y trouver sa source, elle tombe nez à nez avec Sherry Palmer en personne !

Face aux accusations de Lynne, Mme Palmer explique que l’on raconte sciemment des âneries sur son compte, afin de l’enfoncer et de l’empêcher d’enquêter sur une éventuelle trahison au sein de l’équipe Palmer. Sherry ne dit rien pour l’instant à son ex-mari pour la simple raison qu’elle n’a pas encore assez de preuves.

Lynne, méfiante, dit qu’elle fera tout pour protéger le Président des manigances de Sherry. A cela, Sherry répond par des avertissements… A la mosquée, Bauer s’apprête à tuer Faheed, le benjamin de la famille. A la dernière seconde, Sayed Ali craque et avoue que la bombe se trouve à l’aérodrome de Norton. Un avion fera exploser la bombe au dessus du centre-ville. Jack appelle la CAT pour les prévenir.

Mason mobilise un grand nombre d’agents, et les envoient sur place. Kate, horrifiée par la décision de Jack de tuer le fils de Sayed Ali, découvre qu’en fait, il s’agissait d’une mise en scène, et que personne n’a été tué.

Bauer lui demande de venir avec lui à l’aérodrome, car Marie s’y trouve très probablement. Effectivement, on voit Marie arriver dans un hangar d’avion et y retrouver Omar : le détonateur apporté par Marie est mis à son emplacement. La bombe est là, devant nos yeux.

Il est 20 heures, et les deux terroristes se mettent à prier.

PRESIDENT DAVID PALMER: We've established a direct link from Stanton to the rouge mercenaries that shot down Bauer's plane.

MIKE NOVICK: Stanton won't be easy to break. You may need to expand the limits of how far you're willing to go.

MAN: Mr. Stanton, by orders of the President, I'm placing you under arrest.

PALMER: What I'm about to ask you to do falls outside of the parameters of your charges of secret service.

TED SIMMONS: What would like me to do sir?

[Ted Simmons uses electrical shocker device to torture Roger Stanton for information.]

STANTON:  I don't know what you're talking about.

JACK BAUER: Where is she now?

GEORGE MASON: She ran off after the accident. Maybe she was trying to avoid the local police or whether she trying not to get brought back to LA.

JACK: Just find her, George.

[Kim Bauer accidentally run into and gets caught in a game-trap.]

KIM BAUER: Ow!

SYED ALI: Marie, we have a problem.

MARIE WARNER: What is it?

ALI: Basheer and Marko are dead.

MARIE: What do you need me to do?

ALI: They were supposed pick up the trigger.

MARIE: Where is it?

ALI: At the place where Marko worked, in his locker. You must do whatever you can to gain access to this locker and bring the trigger to Omar as soon as possible.

MARIE: I'll take care of it.

KATE WARNER: I think I've earned the right to know what's going on.

JACK: We believe that Syed Ali is at the center of a terrorist attack. We need you to identify him for us.

[Kate Warner goes through the mosque and spots Syed Ali.]

KATE: He's in there. Syed Ali. He's in there.

[Jack and Tom Baker finds a burning body in a room at the mosque.]

JACK: Dammit!

TOM BAKER: He's dead Jack.

JACK: These clothes don't belong to this man. Maintain secure exits. Maintain secure exits. Ali is still in the building.

---

The following takes place between 7PM and 8PM.

---

TOM BAKER: You're gonna have to step outside until we get the situation resolved.

KATE WARNER: Agent Bauer told me to stay. Talk to him.

BAKER: I will- as soon as you step outside.

[Jack Bauer enters.]

JACK BAUER: She stays with us. She's gotta make the final identification on Ali as soon as we find him.

[Jack and Baker steps to the side, Baker holds out a zip-log bag with a piece of paper in it.]

BAKER: We found this in the pocket of the man Ali set on fire. It might be part of a document Ali was carrying.

JACK: Photo it, send it to CTU, see what they can find.

JACK: Are you trying to protect this man?

IMAM: No, Agent Bauer, I have no misplaced loyalties. If the man that you're looking for, has murdered an innocent, he is as guilty in the eyes of Islam as he is in yours.

JACK: The man that I'm looking for, set in motion a plan today to detonate a nuclear weapon in Los Angeles.

IMAM: Are you certain?

JACK: Yes I'm certain. Our estimate is between 1 and 2 million people will die if this bomb goes off. That, sir, is why we need to find him now.

IMAM: Thank you for informing me, but I can be no more honest with you than I have been. But if you find this man, perhaps I can talk to him in a way you cannot. Persuade him.

AGENT: Agent Bauer?

JACK: Thank you.

[Jack steps away from the imam and follows the agent.]

AGENT: We found something I think you should see. We found this trap door, it's not on any of the schematics you gave us.

JACK: Open it. I go down... I'm going down alone.

[The Agent opens the trapdoor, Jack leans down and shines his flashlight into the tunnel.]

AGENT: I know this is your operation-

JACK: Listen to me. We just lost one of Ali's men to a cyanide capsule hidden in his tooth. We have to assume that Ali's willing to take his life the same way. He can't see us coming. Have your men assemble at the base of the ladder. Await my instructions. Have you got your baton with you? Let me have it. Okay.

[Jack takes the agent's baton and goes down the ladder. He walks through the tunnel cautiously, a clatter sounded from farther in the maze of tunnels.]

---

[Marie Warner is driving in her car, suddenly, her phone rings. She answers it.]

SYED ALI: Marie.

MARIE WARNER: Hello?

ALI: There has been a change of plans.

MARIE: Why? What's going on?

ALI: Just go to the rendezvous point. If I'm not there within 1 half-hour of the time we have planned, then you know what to do. You remember what I said yes?

MARIE: I remember.

[Ali hangs up. Suddenly, Ali hears a clatter. He walks over to the tunnel; Jack Bauer jumps out and takes him down with the baton.]

JACK: I've got the suspect. Engage the room! Engage the room!

[Jack holds a struggling Ali by the mouth and desperately tries to keep him from biting into the cyanide capsule. Baker and the SWAT team rushes in to help. Kate Warner follows.]

JACK: Grab his legs!

KATE: That's him! That is Syed Ali!

JACK: Get her outta here! Get her outta here! Get her outta here.

[Two agents forces Kate Warner to get out of the room. Jack Bauer's hands are bloody from Syed Ali's biting. Jack finally punches Ali several times in the jaw to stop the biting and takes the cyanide capsule.]

JACK: I got the cyanide. Get him ready. Baker!

BAKER: Find out who he was talking to.

[Jack hands Baker Ali's phone.]

---

BOB WARNER: It's hard not to sit here and think that there must be some mistake, even with the evidence you have.

GEORGE MASON:  It's black and white, Bob. Your daughter killed Reza and 2 of our agents. And I need you to help us understand what her connection to Syed Ali is.

BOB: If I'd known she was involved, I would have done something.

MASON: And now that you do know, does it help explain any strange behavior? Anything you could tell us will help.

BOB: Well... Marie went to college in London while I was working there. That's when her mother died. And it hit her, hit her hard. Hit us all hard.

MASON: And?

BOB: She ran away for a while.

MASON: How long?
BOB: 3... maybe 4 weeks. We got the police involved but... she sent us a letter saying that she was fine. That she was traveling and she just needed some space. And when she came back... I was so grateful to see her that I stopped asking questions.

MASON: No sense that anything have changed? Any fundamentally difference?

BOB: She had become... less politically inclined. Marie had always flirted with causes, respectable causes. Like save the wilderness, or abolish the death penalty. She stopped talking about all that.

MASON: That's precisely what happens when you're radicalized. Handlers train you to stop talking about anything, keep it to yourself, so you're better able to blend into the background.

BOB: Marie had handlers?

[The door opens. Michelle Dessler beckons to George Mason.]

MASON: Hey, can it wait? I'll be right back with this...

[George Mason follows Michelle Dessler out.]

MICHELLE DESSLER: This scan just came in from the mosque. A burn paper fragment found in Ali's clothing. The only thing visible to the naked eye is visible in the lower left quadrant. It looks like a piece of a number... Maybe a 6 or an 8.

MASON: Are all of our forensics people out in the field?

MICHELLE: We just got Murdoch on loan from San Diego. He's an expert with computer imaging. If anyone can see this, he can.

MASON: How are you doing? George Mason.

MURDOCH: Hey man. Randy Murdoch.

MASON: Please to meet you.

MURDOCH: Good to meet you.

[They shake hands. Murdoch goes over to the computer, and sits down.]

MASON: Any way to accelerate the process?

MURDOCH: My CPU's faster than anything you guys got. Parallel processing could take way too long to set up. But, check it out- if there's anything there, I'll get it.

MASON: Great. Where's Tony and the satellite feed Jack wants?

MICHELLE: In progress.

MASON: Thank you. Keep it up.

MURDOCH: Alright.

[Michelle and Mason exits.]

---

[Ted Simmons re-enters the interrogation room and walks towards Stanton, rolling his sleeves up.]

TED SIMMONS: Who else knew about the bomb, Mr. Stanton?

ROGER STANTON: I don't know what you're talking about.

[Mike Novick enters President David Palmer's office while Palmer watches Roger Stanton's interrogation from his computer.]

MIKE NOVICK: Jack Bauer is interrogating Ali as we speak. We'll be informed of his progress on a minute-by-minute basis, but nothing yet.

DAVID PALMER: And we're certain that this man knows the location of the bomb at this point?

MIKE: Jack Bauer is.

PALMER: Make sure he has all the resources he needs.

MIKE: Yes sir.

TED(COMPUTER): The pain's only going to get much, much worse.

[Ted Simmons uses the machine to zap Roger Stanton again. Roger Stanton struggles in his chair.]

TED(COMPUTER): You can stop it.

PALMER: Agent Simmons tells me that Roger received the same training of resisting interrogation as he did.

TED(COMPUTER): I'm increasing the voltage.

PALMER: But everyone breaks eventually.

MAN(PHONE): You have an entry point?

TONY ALMEIDA(PHONE): As far as we know, she entered the forest somewhere between 8-3 and 8-4 on the topo map.

MAN(PHONE): And heading?

TONY(PHONE): No. No idea which way she headed.

[George Mason and Michelle Dessler walks up behind him.]

TONY(PHONE): But keep me posted alright?

[He hangs up.]

MASON: What are you doing?

TONY: Getting more men out there looking for Jack's daughter.

MASON: After I specifically told you to divert all resources to the bomb.

TONY: The satellite feed is happening alright? I wasn't using our resources. I was telling the sheriff to look for her.

MASON: Tony, you're a resource! I don't want you to split your attention.

TONY: I promised Jack I'd do everything in my power to look for Kim. Just like you did.

MASON: Kim is outside of the blast radius! The rest of Los Angeles isn't! Stay focused on the bomb Tony! That goes for everybody!

[Mason stomps away. He goes up to his office, slowing down and gripping the staircase railing to help himself up as another radiation nausea attack comes. Tony picks up his phone.]

MAN(PHONE): LA county Ranger Station.

TONY(PHONE): This is Tony Almeida at CTU.

MAN(PHONE): Yes sir?

TONY(PHONE): Well I'm trying to track somebody who went into the Angela Crest forest about an hour ago.

MAN(PHONE): Hold while I transfer you.

---

[Kim tries to free herself from the trap. She blows warm air into her hands. Suddenly, she heads leaves rustling from behind her. She uses a nearby stick to stand up. After looking awhile to see somebody, she hides behind a large rock. A man approaches her. Kim comes out from her hiding spot.]

MAN: Hey, somebody there? Hello?

KIM: Who are you, what are you doing out here?

MAN: Me? What are you doing out here?

KIM: I got into a car accident. I started running, and before I knew it, I was out here. I had no idea where I was. I got stuck in this stupid thing. Look, all I wanna do is get back to the highway and get outta here.

MAN: Why were you running from the highway in the first place?

KIM: I told you, I was scared and panicked. Dammit!

[The man puts down his lantern and rifle. He helps Kim out of the trap.]

KIM: Oh, God. Thank you.

---

MAN: Coming through here.

BAKER(RADIO): We're moving into position now. Baker out.

[Men lay wires and pushes trolleys of electronic equipment down to the basement of the mosque.]

JACK: I know who you are. I know everything you've done. Where is the bomb?

[Syed Ali groans. Jack punches Ali in the stomach and the head. Ali spits blood on the floor.]

JACK: Where is the bomb? You are wasting my time. When is the bomb going to detonate?

ALI: You are the one wasting time. I woke up today knowing I would die.

JACK: I can make you die with more pain than you ever imagined.

[Jack tightens the wire on Syed Ali's hands. Ali screams in pain. Kate Warner watches from outside the door. She shakes her head in horror; Tom Baker shields Kate Warner from the scene and escorts her away.]

ALI: Then I will have that much more pleasure in paradise.

JACK: Right.

---

MAN: Now we gotta figure out how we can get you to the nearest ranger station.

KIM: No, that's okay. I don't wanna go back there.

MAN: The same reason you ran from the highway?

[The man finishes bandaging Kim's foot and helps her with her shoe.]

KIM: Here, I got it. Thank you.

MAN: The highway's couple miles that way. But the way there is not safe. The terrain's too rough to follow at night, and there's cougars up in that area. My place is a half-mile that way. I could put a roof over your head for the night.

[Kim looks at the man suspiciously.]

---

[Jack wipes his hands clean with a towel. He exits the room, letting the imam go into the room.]

IMAM: I am the imam of the mosque. Do you deny these men's accusations that you are planning to explode a bomb that will kill millions of people? The Koran clearly forbids the killing of innocents and noncombatants. You know this as well as I do.

ALI: We have different interpretations of the Koran.

IMAM: You are misguided. Someone has twisted the words of the prophet. Allah does not love aggressors. Listen to me- the murder of one innocent, let alone millions, will not get you into paradise.

ALI: We will continue this debate when I see you there, Imam Al Fulani.

[The imam stares at him in horror and exits. Jack Bauer is working at a station with a computer.]

JACK: I want the images from this computer transferred to these monitors. Come with me.

IMAM: I have talked to men like this before who had misused our religion to channel their hate, but I have not known anyone personally who would actually act on their impulses.

JACK: Is there any kind of appeal that you can make to him that'll make any difference?

IMAM: I will try again, but I don't think so.

JACK: We don't have that kind of time.

IMAM: Please, I want to try again.

JACK: Sir, you can't be involved with what's gonna happen next. Please escort the gentleman upstairs.

BAKER: Agent Bauer?

JACK: Yeah.

BAKER: We recovered the last number Ali dialed on his cell. It's a 310 area code. 555-2130. we're doing a work-up on it now.

JACK: Okay, good.

[Kate overhears the number.]

KATE: Wait. What was that number?

[Baker looks at Jack. Jack nods.]

BAKER: 555-2130.

KATE: Oh that's not possible That's my sister's cell phone number.

[Baker and Jack looks at each other knowingly.]

KATE: What's going on? What are you not telling me?

JACK: Why don't you give us a minute.

[Baker exits.]

JACK: Your sister's fiancée Reza and two of our agents were found shot to death in your father's building about an hour and a half ago.

KATE: What?

JACK: Your sister Marie was with them.

KATE: Marie? Is she okay?

JACK: They don't know where she is right now?

KATE: When were you going to tell me this?!

[Kate looks at Jack disgustedly, Jack's face's passive.]

JACK: when we had confirmation that she was the person that pulled the trigger.

KATE: What? That is ridiculous. How could you even think that?!

JACK: Because we have video tape on her. She was the only person seen leaving your father's building in the last hour and a half.

[Jack start walking away.]

KATE: What...? Well, she was probably trying to escape! She could have been hurt! You know that he called her number, you don't know if she picked up! The phone could have been stolen!

[Jack walks back to the Kate-in-denial.]

JACK: You really believe that?! You really believe your sister has nothing to do with this?

KATE: Yes, I really believe it.

JACK: There's one way you could prove that to me. Phone her cell phone. But if she picks up, you have to talk to her and keep her on the phone as long as possible so we can find her. That's the deal. Can you do that?!

KATE: Okay.

JACK: Okay. Okay. I gonna be right back. Baker? We need to trace a cell phone call. But I need you to manipulate the caller ID. We need to make it look like it's coming from Kate Warner's phone. Get on it now.

[Baker leaves. Jack stares at Kate from behind.]

---

07:24:14.. 15.. 16.. **Fade out.*

07:28:27.. 28.. 29.. 30.. 31

---

JACK: We'll set up just in here. Our equipment will make it look like you're calling from your cell phone. Just tell her you're worried ‘cause you haven't heard from her in the last few hours but don't be panicked.

MAN: We're linked into the cell-provider network. We can triangulate within 15 to 30 seconds. Once we lock, we can track the phone even after the call ends.

JACK: Okay, good. Let's make the call.

[Jack hands Kate the phone.]

KATE: What if it's not her? She doesn't answer. What if it's someone else?

JACK: That's what we need to find out. Kate, finding your sister right now could save the lives of millions of people. Please make the call.

[Kate dials Marie's number. Jack listens from headphones.]

---

[Marie Warner's still driving in her car, her cell phone rings. The caller-ID indicates it's ‘Kate's cell.']

MARIE: Hello?

KATE: Hi. It's me. I haven't been able to reach dad. He's not back yet. What's going on?

MARIE: Just taking a drive... to clear my head.

KATE: I understand. I'm so sorry, Marie. About everything.

MARIE: Yes.

KATE: Do you want to meet back at the house? Grab a bite? Can you?

MARIE: They found Reza, haven't they? They know what's happened.

KATE: I don't know. I don't know what happened. Oh, Marie. Tell me, please, what happened?

MARIE: You wouldn't understand Kate.

KATE: You killed Reza? And those agents?

MARIE: People have to die for things to change.

MAN:  We're locked.

KATE: You couldn't have done this. You're not this person. They forced you! You didn't know what you were doing!

[Marie hangs up and throws the cell out of the window. A car runs over the cell phone.]

MAN: We tracked it to a 10-block section of Sylmar. We lost the phone after that.

JACK: Okay, tell CHP to shut down that 10-block radius. Send over the vitals on Marie Warner. Tell them to find her.

MAN: Got it.

KATE: You don't know who she was with! They could have been forcing her! You don't know!

JACK: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

[Jack turns and walks away.]

---

TONY: Any word back from the ranger station yet?

MICHELLE: No. Nothing yet. They mounted a search. But they can't cover as much ground at night.

MURDOCK: Tony. I just sent this to Jack over at the mosque. Check it out. This paper has a very irregular pulp pattern. So the final step in the process is to take samples from various points, so we can create a CGI algorithm of what the paper looks like without any of the writings or other impressions on it. Right? We then subtract that from what we've actually got, and what we get... Is a representation of anything that interrupts that pattern. Aha. There it is. Okay. This is only a partial. There are a few more markings. Letters or numbers to the right of these. But I'm gonna need a bit more time. They're more obscure.

TONY: Do we have any contacts whatsoever as to what these numbers or letters refer to?

MURDOCK: No. They photographed the paper on both sides. That's the only area, right here... with any information on it.

TONY: Alright. Good job. Listen Michelle, I want you to get anyone we can spare on that sequence of letters and numbers. Alright? I want you to check VIN numbers, license plates, shipping manifests. Also get crypto to see if that's a code alright?

MICHELLE: I'm on it.

---

BAKER: Agent Bauer?

JACK: Yeah?

BAKER: This just came in from CTU.

[Baker hands Jack a transparent film with the paper Murdock recovered, the letters and numbers N34 barely visible on the side.]

JACK: Open the door. Open the door!

[The agent opens the door. Jack rushes in.]

JACK: N34, what does that mean? What does that mean?! You screwed up Ali. We're gonna cross-reference that number to everything in our database. Marie Warner is being picked up as we speak. That's right, all the pieces are starting to come together. No matter what, we're gonna find this bomb. So you can either tell me now, or I can make you suffer. You wanna suffer?

ALI: I already told you... I'm not afraid to die.

JACK: The only way you're gonna die today is if I kill you. Your bomb's not going off.

[Baker enters.]

BAKER: We're all set. We have a live feed.

JACK: Patch it through.

BAKER(RADIO): Go!

[The portable TV in the room lights up. A woman and a boy is strapped to a chair by black-clothed men. Another boy is yelling and struggling as he is tied to the chair. Ali looks up.]

JACK: Those men will kill your family if you don't tell me where the bomb is now.

[The camera zooms in on the terrified mother, and the tears glistening on the smaller boy's face. Ali watches with a horrified expression on his face.]

JACK: I despise you for making me do this. They're waiting for my order. This is your last chance. Where is the bomb?

[Ali struggles against his chair.]

07:34:44.. 45.. 46.. **Fades out.**

07:38:55.. 56.. 57.. 58.. 59

MIKE: Sir! Are you aware that Jack Bauer's threatening the lives of Syed Ali's family?

PALMER: No. Where is the family?

MIKE: In their own country. CTU's been in contact with the security forces there who have Ali's family in custody. We just got word that Jack has requested they kill the family one by one till Ali tells us the location of the bomb.

[Mike and Palmer enters Palmer's office.]

PALMER: Would the security forces do this in your estimation?

MIKE: They do act against civilians. And their government is afraid of what we'll do in retaliation if a bomb goes off. Yes, I think they would.

PALMER: Can we let this happen? Condone the murder of innocent people?

MIKE: The argument would be, the bomb is an act of war and wars result in civilian casualties.

PALMER: Oh I don't want a rationale here, Mike! I don't know of a war where a president knowingly targeted children for assassination.

MIKE: Compare this to a weapons factory we discovered recently near a hospital- a situation we have faced. A bombing would still be ordered on the logic that many more people will be saved by the destruction of the factory. The numbers are even more compelling here. A few may have to die to save millions.

PALMER: How could it have come to this...

---

JACK: Your wife's been writing you letters everyday. She doesn't know where to send them. Your son Asad wants to grow up and be just like you. Turns 12 next week. I don't think he's gonna make it. I know what it's like to loose someone. To watch them get killed right in front of you.  I don't wanna hurt your family. But I will order those men to pull that trigger if you don't give me the information I need.

ALI: I am... I am doing Allah's work.

JACK: No. You're going to kill millions of people. That's what you're doing.

[The door opens. An agent comes in with a phone.]

AGENT: Agent Bauer- it's important. It's the President.

JACK: Mr. President- this is Jack Bauer.

PALMER: Can't let you do this Jack.

JACK: Sir, Ali was willing to take his own life to complete his mission. His only vulnerability sir is his family.

PALMER: It is not the policy of this country to kill innocent children.

JACK: Sir, the action will take place in his country. You would not have to be involved. This would be a field decision.

PALMER: My decision is final. I'm sorry, Jack.

JACK: Yes, sir.

[President Palmer hangs up. Jack Bauer pretends he's still on the line. Ali watches Jack.]

JACK: I understand, Mr. President. No, I do not think that there is another alternative. I know it's a difficult decision sir. Yes sir. Thank you for your support Mr. President.

[Jack Bauer closes his cell.]

JACK: He authorized the action.

[Jack hands the agent the phone, and the agent exits. Jack smirks at Ali, who now returned to watching the screen fearfully.]

MIKE(PHONE): No! Roger Stanton isn't available!

MAN(R)(PHONE): When can I talk to him?

MIKE(PHONE): I don't know!

MAN(R)(PHONE): Mike-

MIKE(PHONE): Look, that's all I can say right now, Rich. If you have a tactical question, talk to Scott Grant. He's got the NSA play book today.

RICH(PHONE): I can use your name?

MIKE(PHONE): Sure.

[Mike hangs up. Lynne Kresege enters.]

LYNNE KRESEGE: Mike, can I have a quick word with you, please?

MIKE: Yeah, sure Lynne.

KRESEGE: I don't trust Sheri Palmer. And I don't think she should be here.

MIKE: I'm up to my eyeballs trying to hide this interrogation with Stanton from Washington. If you have a problem with Sheri, deal with it yourself.

KRESEGE: Mike, I think you know me well enough to know that this isn't a battle over turf. This is about Roger Stanton.

MIKE: What?

KRESEGE: I was waiting for the appropriate time to tell you. I wanted to be sure. Someone has approached me with evidence of a flow of communications between Roger Stanton and Sheri Palmer- and it has been over the last 6 months.

MIKE: Roger said he met her today for the first time.

KRESEGE: Yes. I know.

[Mike sighs.]

MIKE: My... God.

KRESEGE: You've known Sheri for a very long time. Is today indicative of how she operates? Then this shouldn't be too much of a shock to you.

MIKE: Sheri Palmer's a lot of things, but a traitor to this country? I don't believe that... What kind of communication? Phone calls?

KRESEGE: Yes. Phone calls, emails... Mike... Face to face.

MIKE: Who's your source on this?

KRESEGE: Up until now, I've been getting this through an intermediary, but I actually have a meeting with the source in about 10 minutes. Where?

MIKE: Off-site.

KRESEGE: Are you telling the president?

MIKE: No. He's got enough on his plate already. And he'd want proof anyway. You can go ahead with your meeting. Let me know what happens. Be careful.

KRESEGE: I will. Thank you.

MAN(RADIO): Shall we proceed as planned?

JACK(RADIO): Yes, affirmative. Start with the older son, Asad. If that's not successful, move on to his younger son.

MAN(RADIO): Copy that. We are waiting for your orders.

JACK(RADIO): We are a go.

[Jack goes back to the room from the corridor. Kate looks at Jack curiously.]

JACK: I can't wait any longer. Tell me where the bomb is or I will kill Asad. Ali- I know you think what you're doing is right, but it's my job to not let that happen. Please don't make me do this. Asad is just a boy. Tell me where the bomb is!Tell me where the bomb is! Fine!

JACK(RADIO): Kill him!

[The men in black kicks Asad's chair to the ground and partially out of site. He shoots twice at the fallen figure.]

ALI: No! No!

[Kate hears screams from outside. Ali screams and struggles against his chair. Tears are streaming down his wife's cheeks, and Asad's younger brother's eyes widen with fear as the men now approached him after killing his brother.]

JACK: Tell me where the bomb is! Tell me where the bomb is and I'll spare the rest of your family!

ALI: I will not tell you!

[Lynne Kresege exits her car and goes through a deserted building. She checks her watch repeatedly and looks around. She walks past the corner, Sheri emerges from behind.]

SHERI PALMER: Your meeting's changed. Now it's with me.

[Kresege gasps.]

SHERI: No, don't go anywhere Lynne. We need to talk.

KRESEGE: I don't think so.

SHERI: Oh I think we do. You think you've connected me to Roger. That's exactly what they want you to think.

KRESEGE: Who is they?

SHERI: The people Roger's conspiring with.

KRESEGE: So you're confirming that Roger Stanton is involved? He knew about this bomb ahead of time?

SHERI: Oh... Roger's more involved than David could possibly know.

KRESEGE: What the hell does that mean? This conspiracy, what is its goal then?

SHERI: To take over the presidency. These people, these people are feeding misinformation about me because they're afraid I'll get in the way.

KRESEGE: If you're not involved then, how would you know about this meeting?

SHERI: I don't have to involved to know the moves they're making Lynne.

KRESEGE: If you knew what Roger was doing, why the hell haven't you said anything to the President?

SHERI: Probably for the same reasons you're keeping this line of inquiry to yourself. I want to have as much concrete evidence as possible.

KRESEGE: Sheri, you could have said any of this to e back at the retreat, why come here?

SHERI: To make a point, that's all.

KRESEGE: To make a point? I think this a warning. I think you orchestrated all of this to show me how powerful you are. And I think you have your own, and not the President's best interest at heart. And I will do everything in my power to make sure you don't hurt him and that you don't undermine this administration.

[Kresege leaves.]

---

JACK: Asad is dead. There's nothing I can do to change that. You can still save Fareed's life.

[Ali shouts in Arabic.]

JACK: I'm gonna give you 10 seconds. Where is the bomb?

[Ali shouts in Arabic again.]

JACK: You're running out of time. I will tell these men to kill your last son! Where is the bomb? That's it!

JACK(RADIO): Take him out!

ALI: I will tell you!

JACK(RADIO): Hold it!

ALI: I will tell you.

JACK: Tell me now.

ALI: It is at Norton Airfield.

JACK: Why? What's the plan?

ALI: We were going to fly over downtown and detonate it. It is true! It is... it is true...

[Jack calls CTU.]

MICHELLE(PHONE): Dessler.

JACK(PHONE): It's Jack, get me Mason.

MICHELLE: It's Jack!

MASON(PHONE): What do you have?

JACK(PHONE): The bomb's at Norton Airfield. They're putting it on a plan to fly it over the city.

MICHELLE(PHONE): Okay, Norton's a medium-sized airfield. They do cargo, private aviation. Every plane's tail number begins with the letter "N". That's probably what this refers to. It's still only partial, but it narrows down the search.

MASON(PHONE): We're on our way.

MASON: We're moving units Bravo, Echo and Lima to Norton Airfield, where we have reason to believe the bomb is located. Call FAA and have them ground all the flights in or out of Norton. Even if they do get the plane in the air, we wanna have two F-16s at the ready to intercept. We'll get the bomb units and SWAT teams over there as well, so just move! And remember, the "no unnecessary contact" rule remains in place.

[Men are wheeling the TV sets out back to the hall. Jack exits the room, Kate Warner walks by.]

JACK: Put Ms. Warner against the wall.

[Two other guards held Ali by the arms and shoulder and leads him out of the room.]

ALI: You killed my boy! You killed my boy! You killed my boy! I will get you for this! You will die for this!

[Ali exits. Kate looks at Jack.]

KATE: How could you? You're worse than they are.

[Jack looks at Kate dismissively and stations himself at the computer.]

JACK(RADIO): Reroute the satellite back to normal feed.

MAN(RADIO): Now sir?

JACK(RADIO): I want confirmation.

MAN(RADIO): Rerouted satellite. You should have live picture now.

JACK(RADIO): Thank you.

[Jack walks away from the computer and hands the radio to an agent. He instructs the agent on the Norton Airfield situation. Kate Warner heads over to the computer curiously.]

JACK: We're gonna come in from the north. Okay... set up our men coming in from the south from these two gates.

[Turns out that the men did not kill Asad after all, and that it's just an editing trick.]

KATE: He's alive... It was all an act.

JACK: Kate, I need you to come with me, to talk to your sister.

KATE: What? Where?

JACK: Norton Airfield, 30 miles north. It's where the bomb is located.

KATE: Do you really think she's there?

JACK: Yes, I do. Please Kate we don't have much time.

KATE: Okay.

MAN: Come on.

DRIVER: Here you go sir.

[Jack Bauer and Kate Warner gets into a vehicle.]

[Kim Bauer follows the man through the woods.]

[Palmer looking at the interrogation from his office.]

---

TED: Wake up. Wake up Mr. Stanton. There we go. Who else knew about the bomb, Mr. Stanton?

---

[Marie Warner walks into a Norton Airfield hanger. Omar is there, waiting with the bomb.]

OMAR(ARABIC): Now connect the leads to the battery.

[Marie hands Omar the trigger she took from Marko's locker. Omar carefully assembles the device.]

OMAR(ARABIC): Testing...

[Omar presses a button, and the device lights up. He turns it back off and speaks to another man in Arabic, who opened the large cargo. Omar places the completed trigger into the main device of the nuclear bomb. The bomb lights up. Glowing buttons shine. Omar and Marie Warner looks at each other.]

OMAR(ARABIC): Now we pray.

[Omar closes the lid and they walk away.]
