On the run again from the authorities, Jack steals a car in the hospital parking garage. A handy laptop was just lying there, fully charged, and waiting. Jack is able to upload the information from the ‘borrowed’ security disk onto the computer, and finds an image of his assailant -- and Burnett’s assassin. Jack forwards the picture to Renee, trying to earn her trust, yet again. He tells her the same thing he told Larry, that he was set up and the game is not over.
In other news, Hodges’ second-in-command dude actually has a name, Seaton. They discuss the potential plan for setting off “weapons” at various “targets.” Hodges professes his great displeasure at having to hurt anyone for their cause. We can’t tell if that rings true or not, we just want to tell him “Oh boo-F-ing-hoo!” Seriously! Maybe he’d cry real tears if he knew that Renee just told Jack that the Mighty Quinn is connected to Starkwood (Hodges’ defense consulting empire) as a black ops sorta dude.
At the White House, Allison Taylor -- fearless leader -- has changed clothes. This does not happen in the 24-verse that often. What’s next? She’ll order Chinese? Oh, these times, they are a-changing. Of course, Jack has changed clothes more than once since his day began, but, well, he’s Jack! So, in fresh duds, Allison and Olivia discuss strategies as is befitting Olivia’s shiny new position as Special Advisor to the President. Ethan joins them, delivering the unsettling news about the Bauer/Burnett Debacle. The President is mightily pissed off, and poor Ethan slinks away.
Of course, the Bauer/Burnett Debacle is front page news at the FBI. Morris O’Brian has come to collect Chloe but is told instead that she is under arrest for -- all together now -- “Helping Jack!” Poor dear Chloe, all she ever does is help Jack, and what does she get in return? (Besides a world rid of one less terrorist) She gets “jack-shi*t.” Besides Morris raising hell about Chloe, the office is “jacked”-up looking for Jack. It’s a real man-hunt now, and a woman-hunt evidently, as Janis is spying on Renee, reporting her every move back to Larry. As Renee tries to leave the building, she too is arrested. You all know why.
