Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Ramon has been blown to bits, Amador (Greg Ellis) has escaped, and Nina (Sarah Clarke) is running around in the woods, with Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chase (James Badge Dale) in pursuit. They eventually find her, and Jack decides to bring her back to CTU. On the plane, they demand information from her. She eventually gives them the name of one of Amador's contacts, Alvers (Lothaire Bluteau), and a suspiciously complicated phone number. Sure enough, when Jack dials the number, Nina tells him that he's triggered a worm in CTU's computer system, and that in 30 minutes, terrorists will have access to their network. She says she'll deactivate it if their plane turns around and heads back to Mexico, but Jack refuses to give in to her demand, counting on Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and the crew at CTU to fix the problem. Chloe also has to deal with being interrogated about the baby. Faced with being turned over to the police, she tells Chappelle (Paul Schulze) who the father is. Meanwhile, in spite of Palmer's (Dennis Haysbert) pleas, Sherry (Penny Johnson Jerald) goes to visit Julia (Gina Torres) in the dead of night, to convince her to help her prove that Alan (Albert Hall) was responsible for Kevin Kelly's disappearance. While they plot, Alan wakes up and surprises them. He gets into an angry verbal confrontation with Sherry that turns deadly.
