Synopsis by Josh Ralske
A lot of people are pissed off when Tony (Carlos Bernard) reveals that the terrorist threat and Jack's (Kiefer Sutherland) "rescue" of Ramon (Joaquim de Almeida) were all part of an elaborate sting operation. Jack left a video explaining his actions, which is played for Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). Jack is going undercover with the Salazar brothers again, in an effort to buy a deadly weaponized virus on the black market. Palmer leaves Tony in charge, and warns him that there will be serious consequences if Jack's plan doesn't work. Palmer's problems with Anne (Wendy Crewson) and Ted Packard (Conor O'Farrell) go away, albeit in unpleasant fashion, and Anne ends their relationship. Jack arrives at Hector's (Vincent Laresca) compound. Ramon still doesn't trust him, so Hector has to try to convince his brother to wait until they make the lucrative deal for the virus before they kill Jack, who's in contact with the dealer, Amador (Greg Ellis). When they get a moment alone, Claudia (Vanessa Ferlito) angrily confronts Jack about reneging on his promise to take her away when he busted Ramon. Jack's plans are further complicated when Chase (James Badge Dale) arrives in Mexico, and is quickly captured by Hector's men.
