Synopsis by Josh Ralske
While Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Ramon (Joaquim de Almeida) go after Nina (Sarah Clarke), Claudia (Vanessa Ferlito) helps Chase (James Badge Dale) escape. Chase manages to get away, and arranges for a Delta team to pick him up, but Claudia is shot as they drive off. When Amador (Greg Ellis) goes to get the virus for Nina, Jack makes his move, dispatching a couple of her men. But then he gets distracted, and Nina gets the jump on him. Jack desperately offers her a lot of money in hopes of convincing her not to kill him, but she can't believe he's betrayed his country. Back at CTU, Chappelle (Paul Schulze) catches Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) hiding an infant under her desk. He wants to send her home, but he can't because they're in the middle of a crisis. Alan (Albert Hall) uses his political influence to punish Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). After his offer to resign is refused, Wayne (D.B. Woodside) meets with Julia (Gina Torres) to try to convince her to help, but Palmer decides to fight back. "We have to lower ourselves to his level," he says.
