Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Nina (Sarah Clarke) is brought into CTU. Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) has an emotional reunion with Kim (Elisha Cuthbert). He wants to interrogate Nina about Alvers (Lothaire Bluteau), but Chappelle (Paul Schulze) insists that Jack himself be interrogated about his heroin problem. So Tony (Carlos Bernard) handles Nina, while Rae Plachecki (Jenette Goldstein) from the inspector general's office questions Jack about why he started using heroin long before he got in with the Salazars. Chappelle proposes fudging the timeline so his drug use looks more legitimate, and letting Jack get back to work, but Jack refuses to lie about his actions, or even justify them. "This office demands results," Jack tells them. "That's what I provide." Darren Richards (Butch Klein), an interrogation (torture?) specialist, is brought in to work on Nina, with disastrous results. Jack seems to be the only one at CTU who understands just how dangerous Nina is. Chase (James Badge Dale) learns that Kim found out that the baby is his. He asks Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) how she took the news. "Gee, I don't know, Chase," Chloe tells him. "I think she's kinda pissed." Meanwhile, Sherry (Penny Johnson Jerald) returns to Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) headquarters, and tells him that she only spoke to Julia (Gina Torres) on the phone. But Julia calls Wayne (D.B. Woodside) with the real story. Palmer meets with his cabinet to decide whether or not to go public with the terrorist threat.
