It’s 4 pm in the wreckage of the house the drone destroyed. Navarro staggers up hauling Ritter along. Heller gets confirmation of the ambush but it’s too soon to say how many agents were lose. Davies says he’s sorry but his concern is London and the drone targets. Davies says he needs access to the drone data but the General says that’s sensitive data. Davies goes off on him and Heller says to give their Ministry of Defense all the info they need and they agree to work with the RAF as well.
Davies says he has to confer with his cabinet on when and how to make this public. Heller asks Audrey to get the Secret Service to bring Jack to him. Davies is told by one of his people that they’ve received intelligence that Heller has Alzheimer’s and he says – God help us. Jack is brought in and Heller says they were duped and the assault team was hit with a drone missile.
Heller says only one drone is in range of London and the others are hours away. He asks Jack about the arms dealer link to Margot. Jack says he’s the only chance they’ve got. Heller asks if he’ll make a deal (did he forget that conversation?) Jack says he can’t be bought and can’t be broken in time to stop them. Heller says okay.
Navarro tells Jordan that four are dead and six wounded and Jordan says they put out a gas leak cover story. Heller calls Navarro and says that Jack will be going dark to track Margot and says they are to give him whatever he needs plus silence. Jack says he needs a clean phone, field interrogation kit, car and he wants Kate as well. Navarro says that’s not possible and Heller says if Jack wants her, he gets her. Navarro says yes and Jack thanks him.
Jordan goes in and tells Kate that the Prez sanctioned Jack on a mission and that Jack wants Kate. Jordan tells her it will be black and they will have no contact with her – he doesn’t like it but there’s a chopper waiting.
Ian tells his mom the drone that hit the CIA has four missiles left and he’s pulled it into the clouds where it is invisible to radar. He tells his mom he’s concerned about Simone. He says she shouldn’t have killed Naveed in front of his sister. She slaps him in the face and says when he second guesses his sister, she’s second guessing her.
Margot does down and sees Simone watching the men bag up her dead husband. Simone says she’s fine. His phone is ringing and they uncover his body and find Naveed’s phone. There’s a voice mail from his sister asking if they are still getting out of London. Margot asks if Simone knew about this – she’s worried that his sister knows about their operation. She tells Simone to go found out what his sister knows and she asks what then – Margot tells her she trusts her to do what needs to be done.
It’s 4:10 pm.
At 4:14 pm, Jack loads his gun as Mark comes out and says the CIA just dropped off this phone for him. He introduces himself to Jack who says he knows who he is. Mark says he knows his wife came to see him and asks what happened. Jack says to ask her. Mark presses and Jack says they just talked. Mark says he’s worried about what Jack’s presence there will do to her. He asks Jack to stay away from her.
Jack says if he lives through the day, which he doubts, he’ll be going straight to prison so he’s the last thing Mark needs to worry about. Jack is told that Kate will be there shortly and Jack tells Mark he has to go. Jack says Audrey told him that Mark was a good man and that she’s happy (that’s not quite what she said). Jack calls Chloe, says he has no time to explain what’s going on and says he needs to talk to her and Belchek so she puts him on speaker.
Davies meets with his council. The military guy asks how Davies will explain the additional military presence on the street. He says he won’t cause a panic. Heller causes and cautions him against doing exactly what he’s planning and says he has a covert operation in play that it could risk. Davies says with the failure of the last operation, he’s concerned.
Heller says it’s Jack and Davies says he’s a criminal that can’t be trusted. Heller says he has a contact that they can’t pick up. Heller asks him to give him an hour and Davies agrees as long as he keeps him in the loop. Davies tells his assistant that maybe Heller is losing his mind. She asks if he’s really losing it in light of his condition. He asks her to call MI5 and find out where Jack is going and who he’s contacting.
Kate is checked outside for surveillance devices and Jack comes up and says he just wanted to make sure she followed the rules. She asks why he picked her and he says he thought she’s someone who can handle what’s thrown at her. He asks why she’s being sent back to the US and she tells him about her husband. She says she wasn’t involved but also didn’t catch him at it.
He asks if she knows arms dealer Karl Rask. Kate says they’ve been after him for years. He says that he knows she works with Margot and may be able to contact her. She asks how he knows Karl and he says he’s been working for him for two years but will want to kill him the moment he sees him. He tells her to get in the car. She does, they go. He gets a call from Chloe and she says she has all of Rask’s info and says if he can get him to log onto the account they set up from the phone, they should be able to track him.
Mark comes to see Audrey and asks about her talk with Jack. Mark says he told Jack he was concerned about what his presence would do to her and she says it wasn’t necessary. He says it was for him. She asks what Jack said and he said he would be gone soon. Mark gets a call from the Russian Embassy from the Deputy Foreign Minister. He leaves to take the call. Audrey rubs her head and looks uneasy.
The minister tells Mark he knows about the threat and says to let him know if they can help. He says he has the transfer order on Bauer and wants to know when they can have him. Mark says the president has rescinded the rendition order. The minister says Heller needs to tell Moscow that he needs to explain why he’s pulling the order back. Mark says he’s busy and the Minister asks if there is something up. Mark says they should meet and work it out and the man says they must meet today. The minister looks at Heller’s signature with skepticism.
Kate asks about Jack working with Rask. He says he’s been shutting down human trafficking groups and other shady groups Rask is working with. He says that he knows Rask will think he was the leak that clued them in to Margot’s plot. He says that Nils was the actual informant but is dead and Rask thinks Kate was his contact. He says he put info on the phone she needs to hold on he’s going to offer her to Rask.
Kate says he will want to interrogate her and he says if she’s unconscious, Rask can’t. He has a shot of propofol to put her out and says that should buy him enough time to get the info they need. He tells her it’s more likely that they will both die but he will protect her in every way that he can. She says to make it count and puts the shot into her neck. It’s 4:25 pm.
At 4:29 pm, Navarro comes back to CIA HQ and Jordan says there’s something he needs to look at now. He says he was doing maintenance and found a partition removed in their systems. They think some sensitive files may have been transferred during Kate’s hubby’s trial. He wants to run a backup but Navarro says he wants him focused on the Al-Harazi crisis.
Simone shows up to see Naveed’s sister Farah. She asks Simone what’s going on and says that Naveed left her a scary message saying they needed to pack up and get out of town. Simone says Naveed has just been stressed over his dissertation and it was her idea for them to get out of town for a few days. Farah asks where Naveed is and she says he’s busy.
Farah says she knows how important his PhD is and then Farah’s daughter Yasmin comes out of her school. She hugs her Auntie Simone who tells her she’s grown so much and Farah says they are always buying new clothes.
Davies gets word that Jack was picked up on thermal putting the CIA agent Kate in the boot of his car. He says they need to handle it as they think he’s betraying the Americans. He tells them to assemble a team. Jack heads into a private garage and pulls to the back but a shot is fired at his car. He’s told to get out of the car at gunpoint.
Rask is there and says he sent him and Nils with $200k to make a payoff and says that Nils is dead. Jack says he killed him because he was ratting him out to the CIA. They kick him down and ask why they should believe him. He says he brought the CIA contact and she’s in the trunk. They tell him to open it and he does. He says she’s alive but he drugged her to keep her quiet.
Rask orders his men to search her and they do. They find her credentials and her phone. Rask asks where the money is and he says it’s in an account waiting on him. He tells Rask that he should keep her alive because she’s an asset. He tells Jack he has a counter-agent for the propofol and tells him men to wake her up and find out what she knows.
Belchek is across the street with a sniper rifle and Chloe tells him he will only have one shot and it has to wait until Rask accesses the account. Belchek sees them string Kate up and give her a shot. He tells Chloe that Kate may not have that much time. It’s 4:35 pm.
At 4:39 pm, Simone calls Margot and tells her that everything is okay with Farah and says she knows nothing about the operation. She tells her about the stress excuse and is sure all is well. Margot tells Simone they can’t take any chances but her daughter insists that Farah is in the dark.
Margot says that Naveed could not be trusted. Simone says her daughter is with her and Margot says that means she has two loose ends and asks if it’s a problem. Simone says no and her mom says to take care of it and get back as soon as she can. She goes back over to Farah who asks her to stay for dinner. Simone smiles and says okay.
At 4:41 pm, they try to slap Kate awake. She is dragged up and hooked to a chain from the ceiling. They pull the chain up and yank her arms up behind her. They ask what she offered Nils to make him turn – money, immunity or something else. They bring in a bag of tools. The guy grabs up a knife and she’s yanked up off her feet. She screams.
They ask her if the CIA is working with anyone else in Rask’s organization. She doesn’t answer and he slices her thigh. She says Nils was the only operative. The guy looks at her and says he doesn’t believe her. He grabs a bucket and they throw filthy water onto her then spark up some jumper cables and touch her. She writhes in pain and screams.
Belchek tells Jack that they aren’t wasting any time on her and that he needs to hurry. Chloe says they just need to get him to sign in to the account. Jack says the CIA was all over him and it was too risky to contact him. Jack says he can log him into the account. Rask asks if a Metzger helped him set up the account at GGS. Chloe tries to look it up but says part of the directory is locked.
He puts a gun to Jack’s head and tells him to describe Metzger. Jack says there is no Metzger at the bank and Rask says there is and he’s lying. He says there is no Metzger at the bank and asks Rask if he wants his money or not. He admits that’s true and tells the other guys he couldn’t even get him to break a sweat. He gives Rask the account codes and passwords and Rask tells his guys to set up a secure line and check it.
Upstairs, the guy has a drill he’s about to use on Kate. Belchek says he has to take the guy out now. But then Belchek himself is down from the MI5 guys. They tell their guy that there are hostiles upstairs but the team leader is told to focus on Jack and the guy he’s with downstairs and not worry about the others.
It’s 4:46 pm.
At 4:51 pm, Rask logs into the account that will let Chloe track him. British forces close in and Kate is facing a drill. Kate tells the guy there’s going to be another raid on their next operation and the guy says there are several. Kate says she will tell him exactly what he wants to know. Chloe tells Jack that Rask is on the bank site and all he must do is enter the pass code. He starts to hit enter but then MI5 is there. Chloe tells Jack that he didn’t hit enter.
The guy with the drill stops when he hears gunfire. The torturer runs off then Kate wraps her legs around the other guy’s neck and chokes him. She gets undone from the hook and tightens her grip on him. She grabs the knife and stabs him. Rask and his crew swap fire with MI5. Jack takes cover. He hits enter on the laptop and the virus is uploaded. Chloe tells Jack she has it.
Kate takes cover upstairs as she comes under heavy fire. The guy is taken out and she collapses, breathing heavy. Jack tells Rask to put his weapon down and tells him to get on his knees. MI5 comes in and Jack tells them he’s working undercover for Heller. They take Jack and try to take Rask who sets off a grenade killing himself and several others.
Jack tells Chloe he’s okay and she asks why MI5 is there. He asks if he found anything about Margot and says to look for 30 says back when she would have gone dark. Chloe says she’s there and found a mobile number. She says it’s in South London and she’ll work on narrowing it down.
Farah tells Simone she’s glad she’s staying for dinner and asks if she’s okay. Simone has her knife out and Farah asks if it’s about Naveed. She asks if they’re having problems. Simone says she needs to leave now. She tells her to grab Yasmin and leave London right now. Farah asks what is going on and if something happened to Naveed. Simone tells her to leave now before it’s too late.
Farah asks too late for what and then takes the phone and dials the police. Simone says she’s trying to protect her from Margot but then Farah sees the knife and starts telling. She stabs Farah killing her. She sees Yasmin peeking through the stairs. The girl runs and Simone gives chase. She runs after her. The girl screams help and Simone gives chase – so does a concerned neighbor.
The child runs out into traffic and Simone is hit by a bus. That was the phone that Chloe was tracking and it stops.
Jordan is running the program that Navarro told him not to. Navarro heads down to the server room and calls a number – he says there is a problem and an analyst found the missing sectors. He says that he thinks he can retrieve the missing files. He asks if the man is working with Kate and he says doesn’t think so. The man says that if he recovers the files, he won’t be able to protect Navarro and the CIA will know Adam was set up. It’s 4:59 pm
