Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Even though it got them a possible location for Marwan (Arnold Vosloo), Audrey (Kim Raver) warns Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) about the consequences of disobeying Logan (Gregory Itzin) by torturing Prado for information. "No one understands the consequences better than me," Jack tells her. Buchanan (James Morrison) tells Mike (Jude Ciccolella) what happened, and suggests he withhold the information from Logan, but Mike refuses. Logan is livid (and whiny) when he hears that a CTU agent undermined his authority, so he orders the Secret Service to arrest Jack. Mike logically suggests that he wait until after Marwan is apprehended, but Logan is adamant that the arrest be made immediately, if not sooner. So while Jack and Curtis (Roger R. Cross) close in on Marwan, who is recording a message to be played after the nuclear attack, the Secret Service arrive and compromise the mission. Meanwhile, Sabir (Kris Iyer), one of Marwan's techs, gets a call from his worried girlfriend, Nabilla (Lina Patel), who found a suspicious bookmark on his computer, and suspects his involvement with the recent terrorist activities. Another Marwan operative, Morrison (Keith Szarabajka), overhears Sabir's conversation and alerts Marwan, while Nabilla contacts the authorities. Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) determines that the schematic Nabilla has found is of a microchip used to control the trigger on a nuclear warhead. With CTU short on time and personnel, Buchanan (James Morrison) sends Chloe into the field to look at the computer.
