Previously on 24 We pay you to develop the override, not for you to give it away to the rest of the world.

You're working with Cheng? Are you insane? Cheng kidnapped Jack, had him put in a secret prison outside of Beijing and tortured him for over a year.

When Audrey went to go look for him, he did the same thing to her.

I really don't have any use for you anymore.

Send it.

f*re order.

We're to sink the Chinese carrier Shenyang.

f*re torpedoes one and two! Mr.

President, we know who issued the false order that sank your carrier.

Cheng Zhi.

Cheng is d*ad.

We have reliable evidence that he's alive and he's here in England.

Our carrier sinking and the deaths of thousands of crewmen is a brazen act of w*r that cannot go unanswered.

It's imperative that you find Cheng and the override device, so that we can show the Chinese that we were not responsible.

Bauer is still in the picture.

You were supposed to have taken him out.

I sent a team to recover him.

He's not gonna stop until he finds me.

My people will meet you at the dock.

You'll be out of the country in less than an hour.

Bring the witness.

What's in her head is extremely valuable.

You set me up for the Russians, you son of a bitch.

Why?! I thought Bauer was a traitor.

I thought he was here to assassinate you.

The Russians have been pushing us for four years to turn him over to them.

I forged your signature on the rendition order.

I am placing you under arrest for treason.


President, I can still use him.

I'm gonna need him to set up a meet.

He's bleeding out.

Get me a towel now! - Where is Cheng?! - My country has not forgotten.

They will not give up until you pay for what you have done.

I have a contact at the Chinese Embassy here in London.

Let me arrange a meeting and I will bring evidence that the penetration of our systems was out of our control.

Please take this to your father as quickly as possible.

Jiao thank you.

My associate has his w*apon trained on you.

Sit back down on the bench and don't move.

Maybe I'll allow you to live.

Jiao? My God.

I told you, you may not move from the bench.

But my friend is still alive.

Let me go see if I can help her.

I won't run.

I give you my word.

I'm going to her to see if I can help her.

Do not scream.

Do not communicate with anyone in any way.

Why are you doing this? What do you want? You move from the bench again, my sn*per will k*ll you.


Stolnavich's e-mails all look like they're personal.

To family, different women.

Could it be in some sort of code? Stolnavich wouldn't have kept something like that in the open, even if it was coded.

I got e-mails from three days ago using a false name and arranging for payments for a shipment.

Leaves tonight.

Cheng's got to be that shipment.

He's gonna be on a freighter from the harbor - in less than 40 minutes.

- Okay, I'll call it in.

I'll get Erik to send a team there right now.

Oh, my God.

What is it? This is Agent Morgan.

I'm gonna need a team sent down to South Hampton.

This time stamp this was taken less than a minute ago.

Hang up the phone.

- Hang up the phone now.

- I'll call back.

Yes? Stop tracking me.

As soon as I'm safely away, I will set her free.

If you come near me or anyone try to help her, - she dies instantly.

- Cheng, please listen to me Those are my terms! Is that clear? Yes.

Cheng? Cheng?! So it's over.

We We we can't go after him.

Getting to Cheng is the only way - we're gonna stop this w*r with China.

- You're just assuming that.

We don't know if we can get the proof to President Wei! Or even if he'll back off when he gets it.

We're condemning Audrey to death for nothing.

We don't have another choice.

She loves you.

Shut up! Agent Morgan.

We can't involve the CIA.

Cheng will see them coming from a mile away.

What's the alternative? He's right, there isn't one.

I need to go after Audrey.

Jack, you're under a direct order from the president to go after Cheng; you got to follow that.

I can go after Audrey.

You really think you can handle this? Yes.

Okay, I want you to contact Audrey's office discreetly.

Find out where she was going.

Whatever you do, do not alert the CIA.

I want you to put together a small team.

You take out that sn*per.

You keep me posted every step of the way.

I will.


President, I'm Agent Erik Ritter, acting head of station.

Your military advisors are set up in our secure comm and briefing facilities upstairs.

Well, thank you, Agent Ritter.

Have you heard anything from Audrey? I checked in on their Secret Service detail She and Jiao Sim were still talking.

What about Bauer? Negative on Bauer, sir.

What's our status, Admiral? The Chinese now have eight amphibious landing groups steaming toward our bases in Okinawa.

The first Chinese carrier to reach the 12-mile limit will be in the next half hour.

At which point, the seventh fleet has standing orders to engage.

Also, they've ordered their nuclear armed submarines to ascend to 300 feet f*ring depth.

Sir, we need your authorization to escalate our own nuclear readiness in response.

Put our subs and silos on the highest alert.

See if you can get President Wei on the line.

Right away, sir.

Ma'am, are you okay? Are you all right, love? Yeah, I'm fine.

Can I use your phone, please? Yes.

Yes, of course.

Who is this? Jack, it's me.

Chloe, where are you? Cheng had me; I jumped out of his truck.

Adrian's d*ad.

I know.

You got my message.

You know he used the device to launch the att*ck on the Chinese carrier? Yes, and if I capture Cheng alive and can prove his involvement in today's att*ck, we might be able to get China to back down from w*r.

Do you know where he is? He's leaving on a cargo ship.

Belcheck's meeting me down at the docks.

You can't go in there blind.

I'm at Millswood, not far from the docks.

Come get me.

I'll run comm for you.

I'll get you satellites, schematics.

Chloe, I don't think that's a good idea.

Jack, I know you don't trust me.

Adrian lied to me.

The only thing I did wrong was to believe him.

Please, let me make this right.

Give me your cross streets; I'll pick you up.

President Wei, whenever you're ready.




Forgive me for being blunt.

You've got your navy heading toward Okinawa, which our seventh fleet is ready to defend.

But it's in both our interests to avoid a sh**ting w*r.

Especially with both our countries at a high-level of nuclear readiness.

The destruction of our carrier and the deaths of our soldiers is a provocation.

Our military must respond.

We have agents in the field in the process of apprehending Cheng Zhi.

While that's happening, I'm asking you, as a gesture of good faith, to halt your naval advance.

Our military's official position is that Cheng is d*ad.

Myself and my allies in the Politburo must accept this is true, unless proven otherwise.

You've made yourself clear, Mr.


Let me make myself clear.

Once your forces cross the 12-mile limit outside of Okinawa we will fight.

Get your men on board and out of sight.

We are scheduled to depart in 15 minutes.

Is there a way to expedite this? That would draw scrutiny neither of us want.

Chloe, get in.

What the hell happened? You okay? Yeah, I'm fine.

I got banged up getting away from Cheng.

We don't have a lot of time.

I'll explain everything while we drive.

Where is your communications setup? The trunk in the backseat.

Chloe, I need to know why you were with Adrian Cross when you took the override device.

Jack, I tried to get the device from Adrian, but he had a g*n.

We got back to the base and Cheng was waiting.

Adrian wasn't who I thought he was.

He manipulated me and he used my knowledge to create the device.

So, this is partly my fault.

That's why I need to help you.

I need to try to make this right.

It's up to you.

At this point, I think I'm the only friend you have left.

Whether you want to admit it or not.

The operation's simple.

Capture Cheng alive.

Why are you doing this alone? Why not ask the CIA for help? Because he's got Audrey pinned down by a sn*per.

He'll k*ll her if he sees any operation moving against him.

Jack, I'm sorry.

It's not your fault, Chloe.

You need to let that go.

None of this is.

Audrey, this is Kate Morgan.

I'm working with Jack Bauer.

I'm here to help you.

It's really important that you don't react to what I'm saying because we don't want the sn*per to know that you're in communication with me.

Okay? Nod if you understand what I'm saying.

Okay, I need to know if you have any idea where the sn*per is.

Look down if the answer is no.

Listen, I know Cheng doesn't want to k*ll you.

You're gonna have to trust me on this.

I'm gonna need you to draw the sn*per's f*re so that I can locate exactly where he is.

Nod if you're still with me on this.

Okay, I'm gonna count to three, and on three, I need you to make a sudden movement.

Okay, ready? One two three.

I got him.

Stay put and just know that I'm out here, okay? Jack.

- What's your status? - I've located the sn*per, but I need to move into position so I can lay down some cover f*re for Audrey to run.

Copy that.

Get back to me as soon as you've got her secured.

Got it.

Four of us moving in is just gonna attract too much attention.

I'm gonna run point.

The minute I have a clean line of sight, we move on my command.

Did you get everything? There are too many places for Cheng's men to hide.

That's what I'm here for.

I should be able to backdoor a satellite and get their positions.

Cellular modem's not giving me a signal.

I need to get online.

I can wire into that dish.

I need to reprogram the transponders.

My comm is open.

I'll get back to you.

Cover me.



Thank you for everything.

And good luck.


Audrey, I'm about to move into position where I can get a clean sh*t on the sn*per.

As soon as that happens, the second that you hear g*n, I want you to run toward the tree behind your left shoulder.

Okay, stand by.

Jack, I'm backdoored into a satellite overhead.

Resolving the infrared.

Okay, I can see you and Belcheck.

You're clear.


Stop, Jack.

You have two guards coming straight at you.

Ready? Now.

Jack, there's another guy on top of the container.

- Five o'clock.

- Got it.

Turn here.


Jack, you'll have to take out two guards on the port side.

There are men on the bridge.

They're moving away.

You're good.



Copy that.

target on the left; you take target on the right.

On my count.

Three, two, one, f*re.

Chloe, we're on the boat.

Jack, you have a man at the top of the stairs to your left; there's another one on the container directly in front of you.

I'm picking up about a dozen other heat signatures on the ship, mostly in pairs.

Copy that.

What's the status on Audrey? I haven't heard anything.

Most of the men are in a defensive formation around the comm tower that must be where Cheng is.

- Guide us in.

- Okay.


I've been running scans someone in the immediate area is downstreaming with a local satellite.

Roll-call your men.

_ _ Whoever's linking to the satellite, can you cut the access and the communication? Yes, and I can redirect their feed to my screen.

Do it.

Contact whoever's left.

Tell them to go find him.

Go! _ _ What are they doing? No.

Oh, my God.

Cheng knows we're here.

Jack, I have to tell Kate.

She needs to move now.

Kate, it's Chloe.

They're onto us.

You have to get Audrey out of there - and get the CIA involved.

- I'm about to move into position, Chloe.

Cheng's gonna order the sn*per to sh**t! Get Audrey out of there now.


_ Engage! Engage! Go! Go! Go! Okay, got him.

Get up there and make sure he's d*ad.

Audrey, are you okay? Yes.

Eric, it's Kate.

Where are you? I'm at Malden Park with Audrey Boudreau.

Inform Secret Service that we have secured her and we're taking her back to the CIA.

- Where's her current detail? - I'll explain everything later.

Right now you need to get a team over to South Hampton docks.

Jack was going in stealth but right now he's in trouble and he really needs your help he's trying - to stop this w*r.

- Kate I need tac teams suited up in choppers, now! Jack, Audrey's safe.

Thank God.

They've jacked my feed.

I've lost satellite, and I'm trying to get it ba Chloe? Chloe? Jack? Jack! Jack, do you copy? I've cut communications and taken over their satellite feed.

These two signatures must be Bauer and whoever he has with him.

We're leaving now.

_ _ They're getting ready to push off.

I need you to get down to the engine room, do whatever you can to stop, and I'll make my way to the bridge.


Is Jack closing in on Cheng? Yes.

Cheng was using you to get to Jack.

That's why Jack sent me here.

Is Jack all right? I don't know.

Get down! Got two men down.

Oh, God.



Call Erik, tell him we have a second sh**t.

Give me that.

Get medical here right now! Oh, my God.

Stay with us.

Erik, we need medical now! Audrey Boudreau's been hit.

Cheng had a second sh**t.

Stay with me.

Stay with me, Audrey.

Come on.

Stay with me.

Oh, God.


Stay with me.

Stay with me.

Stay with me.

Audrey, will you stay with? Oh, God.

Please, Audrey.

You're not gonna Audrey, please stay with me.

Stay with me, okay? Stay with me! Oh, God.

Admiral? Air reconnaissance confirms.

The Chinese amphibious groups are still on course for our base in Okinawa.


President, I need a go-ahead to engage if the perimeter is breached.

- Anything from Jack? - I'm afraid not, Mr.


Sir, our forces are awaiting your orders.

I know that, Colonel.

Sir I need a word.


Belcheck? I got to fall back to reset.

Copy that.


Jack, it's Kate.

Yeah, go ahead.

Jack, I'm so sorry.

We lost Audrey.

What are you talking about? You said she was safe.

I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry.

There was another sh**t, and he got her, Jack.

I'm I'm so sorry.

Jack? Jack, can you hear me? Jack, talk to me.

Engine turn it off.

You should have stayed hidden like a rat.

You could have died an old man.

The Chinese have breached the perimeter, Mr.


Permission to engage.

Set w*apon postures red and tight.

You are cleared to engage any positively-identified Chinese air or surface targets.


President, if this should escalate, we need to begin reviewing the nuclear response scenario.

Begin the review.

Sir, I'm putting through an urgent call from downstairs.

Excuse me, gentlemen.

I have Jack Bauer on live comm link.

Hold that order.

Delay w*apon posture red.

Putting it up on the monitors.

This is Jack Bauer.

I have Cheng Zhi, and he is alive.

I have Cheng, and he is alive.

Initiate facial recognition.

Copy that.

Just connected with the Chinese.

Just give me one second.

You're being recorded.

Tell them who you are.

Tell them who you are.

Do we have confirmation? Just a few more seconds, sir.

Tell them who you are! My name is Cheng Zhi! Did you get that? Did you get that?! Got it.

That's facial recognition and voice match.

It's him.

Copy that.


Let's get President Wei on the line.

This is for Audrey, you son of a bitch.


President, did you receive the file we just sent you? I'm looking at it now.

Then you can see that Cheng is alive and in our custody.

This confirms everything I've told you about the sinking of the Shenyang.

It was not my order.

We will need to verify this recording.

Well, you can verify it all you want, but in the meantime, you need to turn your ships around.

Your ships have crossed our defensive perimeter.

If you don't turn them around, I'm going to be forced to respond.

All right.

I will instruct our ships to withdraw, but I need your assurance that we will discuss reparations for the loss of our carrier and the soldiers aboard.

You have that.

And thank you, Mr.


Sir, I, uh Before we head back out, I need to talk to you.


It's rather sensitive, sir.

Maybe, uh Maybe you want to sit back down.

I don't need to sit down.

What happened? Tell me.

Sir, um It's Audrey.

She's d*ad.

She was sh*t by a sn*per during her meeting with Jiao Sim.

It was one of Cheng's men.

That's got to be a mistake.

She was at a covert meeting.

She had Secret Service detail with her.

That's impossible! Every man on that detail was k*lled, as well.

I'm so sorry.

It's not a mistake.

We got confirmation from the field that your daughter died ten minutes ago from a g*n wound.




Get a medic in here, will you? We need a medic at the second floor conference room.

You okay? Sir, you okay? Okay.

Go easy, go easy, go easy, go easy.


It's okay.

- Chloe? - I haven't heard from her.

Not since we charged the boat.

Chloe? Jack.

Oh, no.


Chloe! This is Bauer.

Who is this? When? Where? Understood.

I'll be there.

Just set it up.


It's my after action report.

Look what happened to Audrey, it wasn't your fault.

Field work is not an exact science.

There's no way you could have known that Cheng had a second sh**t.

Yeah, I, uh I realize that.

Per the president's orders, these men are going to escort you to Lakenheath where a military transport will take you back to the States.

How is the president? The president is boarding Air Force One as we speak.

James, you have my deepest sympathy.

I can't even imagine what you're going through.

Thank you, Alastair.

You've been a good friend.

If there's anything I can do, anything at all No, there's nothing you can do.

Nothing anyone can do.

The day before we left for London, I was sitting in my office looking at a picture on my desk of a beautiful woman.

I kept staring at it.

It's been on my desk since my first day in office.

And I knew that I knew that woman.

But I couldn't think of her name.

Ten seconds, 15 seconds go by, then, poof.

Pops into my head.

It was Audrey.

I'm so sorry.

I won't remember anything that happens today.

I won't remember anything that happens, period.

I won't remember that I had a daughter that died in such a horrible fashion.

_ Are you sure you want to do this? Yeah.

She walks first! Jack, you don't have to do this.

It's time for you to go home.

You were right about what you said, earlier.

About being my best friend.

Thank you.

Look in on my family when you can.



I've taken you at your word.

But if you're lying to me if anything happens to her or my family your entire world will come apart, and you will never see it coming.

We just want you, Mr.


That's all we ever wanted.

I would say you're going to enjoy Moscow but you'd know I was lying.

Go to the car.
