Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) learns that Nina (Sarah Clarke) is the other buyer in the Mexico deal. "My father couldn't even pretend to work with her," she surmises. Meanwhile, Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) is tied up, with Nina on his lap smooching him. She senses his hatred, and doesn't quite believe he's turned his back on CTU, but Jack manages to get loose anyway. He and Ramon (Joaquim de Almeida) threaten Nina to get her to cooperate. Hector (Vincent Laresca) learns of Claudia's sad fate, and calls his brother, urging him to call off the deal because Chase (James Badge Dale) got away. Ramon insists on going through with the deal. He's concerned about their reputation. The brothers' argument eventually ends in bloodshed. Chase stays in Mexico to be the forward observer for the Delta team, which is ready to move in once the virus changes hands. Back at CTU, Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) gets Kim to watch the baby, but Kim proves an inept babysitter once again, and Chappelle(Paul Schulze) again considers sending Chloe home. Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) brings in Sherry (Penny Johnson Jerald) to help him in his "street fight" with Alan (Albert Hall), though Wayne (D.B. Woodside) disapproves. Sherry assures her ex-husband that she has the dirt. "If you play this card," she warns Palmer, "you and Alan Milliken will be enemies for the rest of your life."
