[Jack goes to where the trial is being filmed and is able to signal Heller.]
Omar: Finally, we hold you responsible for the blasphemy, for disregarding holly lands and shrines, and for spilling the blood of our brothers. James Heller, your guilt of these charges is not a matter of dispute. I have here a full confession that you have signed. So now it is time for your sentence to be read, and for the execution of that sentence to be carried out. James Heller, for the eyes of God, I sentence you to death. Carry it out. Immediately.
[Just as the executioner is about to shoot him, Heller topples his chair over and Jack shoots the men. Omar escapes. Watching from the webcast, President Keeler calls off the bombers.]
Keeler: Call off the missile. Call it off.
Robert: Abort. Abort. Please confirm.
Driscoll: He’s doing it.
[Jack unties Heller and hands him a gun.]
Jack: There's one in the pipe, safety's off. We gotta get Audrey.
Heller: Down the hall.
Curtis: It’s been aborted. The strike’s been called off.
Driscoll: Where are the Marines?
Sarah: They haven’t crossed the perimeter. I’ll get an update at ETA.
[Jack and Heller go to look for Audrey.
Jack: We’re clear.
[Audrey is no longer in her cell.]
Jack: She was here. We gotta go. Move! Move!
[Jack and Heller make their way outside and hide behind a car, which is splattered with machine gunfire from the guards. They fire back.]
Jack: There are two shooters at your 11 O’clock! You’re ready?
Heller: Give me a clip.
[Jack gets hit in the vest.]
Jack: It went out my vest. It’s all right. Keep firing!
[After a few seconds, Jack gets up and resumes firing at the shooters.]
Jack: I’m out!
Heller: I’m out too.
[Suddenly, a U.S. Marine Cobra helicopter appears overhead. Marines rappel from the chopper and surround the terrorists.]
Jack: It’s the Marines, stay down. The Secretary, stay down. Just stay down until this area’s secure.
[Omar emerges from the building with Audrey at gunpoint.]
Jack: Stand down!
Omar: Stand back or I’ll kill her!
Jack: Stand down!
Omar: Stand back or I’ll kill her!
Jack: Put your gun down!
Omar: Stand back!
Jack: Drop it now!
Omar: I’ll kill her! I will kill her! Do it! Do it!
Jack: OK. Just relax. Audrey, stay calm. Just relax. This is over. You are surrounded.
Omar: You’re right. But first you’ll watch her die.
[Audrey stabs Omar in the leg with the knife Jack gave her. Then Jack throws his knife into Omar’s shoulder. Omar falls back, releasing Audrey, and the Marines shoot him. Audrey runs to her father’s arms, but looks lovingly at Jack from a distance.]
Heller: Yes, sir. The President sends along his gratitude.
Jack: I’m just glad you both are all right.
Heller: It’s been a while since you’ve been in the field, Jack. Looks like you haven’t skipped a beat. Audrey and I owe you our lives.
Jack: Thank you, sir. I’ve arranged transportation for us back to CTU. I’d like you and Audrey to be debriefed there.
Heller: Just as long as we don’t lose any time in finding out who these terrorists are and where they’re coming from.
Jack: As soon as we get back there, I’ll set up a live feed with the office in Washington. You won’t miss a step. Those soldiers there are waiting to take us back to CTU.
Heller: Thanks, Jack.
Jack: How’s she doing?
Medic: A doctor needs to check out some of these contusions, and she’s dehydrated.
Jack: Thank you. You should go.
Jack: I’m taking you and your father back to CTU.
Audrey: Jack, when I was inside, I recognized one of the men.
Audrey: I don’t know. I can’t place him, but I know that I saw him before today.
Jack: They’re gonna correlate a photo file of all the casualties. As soon as they’ve got that, you can make your ID.
[Jack’s cell phone rings.]
Jack: Excuse me. This is Bauer.
Woman: Agent Bauer, this is CTU. I’ve got Paul Raines on the line. He’d like to speak to his wife. Is she with you?
Jack: Hold on one second. It’s Paul. He wants to speak with you.
[Jack hands Audrey the phone.]
Paul: Audrey. Are you OK?
Audrey: Yeah, I’m fine.
Paul: Thank God.
Audrey: Where are you?
Paul: As soon as I heard about you and your father, I got on a plane.
Audrey: You’re in LA?
Paul: Yeah, I’m at CTU. Audrey?
Paul: See you soon.
Audrey: I’ll see you soon.
[Audrey hangs up.]
Jack: We need to go. You’re all right?
[Heller notices Audrey take Jack’s hand.]
Driscoll: Make sure Edgar gets this.
Woman: Got it.
Driscoll: Found anything?
Curtis: I’m still trying to connect up with the feed from the rescue site. Division’s using up most of our bandwidth.
Driscoll: Call over there and tell them to multiplex. We need to start going through the debrief.
Curtis: Now that Heller’s safe, we’re no longer in first position.
Marianne: Ms. Driscoll. I took care of it.
Curtis: What’s that?
Marianne: A list of pass codes for the FBI fiber. You can use their feed.
Driscoll: How did you get that?
Marianne: I used to consult there. I still have friends. And since I saw the load on the running table I knew we’d be running into a traffic jam.
Driscoll: Good. Install it. Start cataloging whatever’s there. Anything that flags, put it up to me.
Marianne: You know, if you let me, Curtis, I can help you a whole lot more. Honestly, I don’t know why you have a problem with me. ‘Cause I’m ambitious? OK, I’m ambitious. Aren’t you?
Curtis: I don’t sleep with people to get ahead in my career.
Marianne: Neither do I. I slept with you because I was attracted to you. I still am. Deal with it.
[Navi watches a news report about Heller’s rescue.]
News Reporter on TV: White House spokesman has just confirmed that the interrupted video transmission was caused by a raid mounted by the Marines and the Counter Terrorist Unit who rescued Secretary of Defense James Heller moments ago.
Man: You’re watching this?
Navi: Yes, I’m watching. Of course I’m watching. God willing, our good fortune will continue for the rest of the day. Thank you.
Behrooz: What are you talking about? It’s over. They found Omar. The government stopped the trial.
Navi: Yes, I know.
Behrooz: Then how can you ay this is all good fortune? Everything we’ve worked for is ruined. You made me kill someone I cared about all for nothing.
Navi: No, not for nothing, Behrooz. The trial was only our first step.
Behrooz: I don’t understand.
Navi: There were certain things that your mother and I decided to keep from you.
Behrooz: What things?
Navi: This. I’m busy.
Behrooz: You forced me to kill my girlfriend because of this trial. You owe me an explanation.
Navi: I don’t owe you anything!
Navi: See who it is. See who it is.
Behrooz: It’s Tariq.
[Navi goes to open the door.]
Behrooz: Why is he here?
[Navi and Tariq embrace.]
Navi: Behrooz, you remember Tariq?
Tariq: Of course he does.
[Tariq embraces Behrooz.]
Navi: I just poke with Moar. He assured me that everything I still on chedule.
Tariq: That’s right.
Behrooz: What are you doing here?
Tariq: Your mother told Marwan you took care of the American girl.
Tariq: Then you’ll need help getting rid of the body.
Behrooz: I don’t need help, I can do it myself.
Navi: I’m sure you can, Behrooz. But we can’t afford any more mistakes. Show Tariq where the body is. Go.
[As another agent feeds video to CTU, Curtis collects a digital gallery of all the bodies and gear found at the compound.]
Agent: OK, agent Manning. This is the last of the bodies. You should see them now.
Curtis: All right, we got it. What’s next?
Agent: Here’s some of the terrorist gear we collected out of the warehouse.
Curtis: Wait a second… stop. Go back.
Agent: You need me to retransmit?
Curtis: No. On the ground in front of you; give me a shot on the briefcase.
Curtis: Yeah. Can you open it?
Agent: It’s empty.
Curtis: Are there any identifying marks on it?
Agent: I see a kind of logo engraved near the lock.
Curtis: I wanna see it. Zoom in.
[A logo with the letters “MF” is on the lock.]
Curtis: Make sure to get someone to transport it back here.
Agent: Will do.
Curtis: Sarah, I need you to do a corporate logo search. We may have found a link between the train crash and Heller’s abduction. I’m sending it to you now.
Sarah: OK. We’ll pick this up later.
[Jack enters CTU with Audrey.]
Audrey: The man I recognized at the warehouse? I wanna make that ID.
Jack: As soon as you’ve been checked up by the clinic. I’ll get the photos ready.
Agent: Excuse me, Miss Raines, this way please.
Jack: It’s all right, go ahead.
[Audrey sees her husband Paul.]
Paul [on the phone]: But I need you to handle this. No, I need to be able to trust that you’ll be able to take care of it. Right.
Heller: OK, good. Excuse us.
[Heller pulls Audrey aside.]
Jack: I’m gonna need to use your station. Have Driscoll send me over pass codes for the onsite feed.
Heller: Does he know? About you and Jack.
Audrey: How long have you known?
Heller: Not until today. Although I’m surprised that I hadn’t figured it out till now.
Audrey: It’s not what you think. Paul and I were over before Jack and I started seeing each other.
Audrey: Yeah, well, that’s more about fixing his wounded pride than fixing this relationship.
Heller: So he doesn’t know about it?
Audrey: Not yet. I’ll take care of it.
Agent: Miss Raines, right through here.
Driscoll: Sarah said you may have found a thread connecting the train bombing to Heller’s abduction.
Curtis: Yeah. About an hour ago NTSP reported a passenger was killed, but not as a result of the crash. He was shot at close range.
Driscoll: Who is he?
Curtis: We’re still trying to find out. He had no ID. His face and prints don’t show up on any database. Whoever killed him stole something he had chained to his wrist. I think it may have been this.
[Curtis shows Driscoll a photo of the briefcase.]
Curtis: A witness on the train saw a man with a briefcase handcuffed. Take a look at the damage. It could have been sustained during the crash. We just recovered this where Heller was being held.
Driscoll: What are you telling me? That the train bombing was a cover for the theft of this briefcase? What was in it?
Curtis: It was empty. But we traced the corporate logo on the briefcase to McLennen Forster.
Driscoll: The defense contractor?
Driscoll: Have you contacted them?
Curtis: I just got off the phone with their CEO. He’s stronghold. He said before he disclosed anything, we need special clearance from the Department of Defense.
Driscoll: The Secretary should be able to get us whatever clearances we need from DOD. Let’s get a print out of all this.
News Reporter on TV: Our top story – only moments ago a second broadcast showing Secretary of Defense James Heller was put on the internet. This image was captured from that broadcast. The transmission then ceased. At this time we have no confirmed reports on why the broadcast was…
[Dina returns back home after tailing Debbie’s mother.]
Dina: The girl’s mother went home. Even if she calls the police, it will be too late. I heard the news in the car. Everything was accomplished?
Dina: When they searched the warehouse, will they figure out what we’re doing?
Navi: It doesn’t matter. It’s too late for them to stop it.
Dina: If everything is working on schedule, why do you look so troubled? Where’s Behrooz?
Navi: He went to burry the girl.
Dina: But his car is still in the driveway.
Navi: He didn’t take the car.
Dina: I don’t understand.
Navi: He went with Tariq.
Dina: Tariq was here? My God, he’s going to kill my son. He’s going to kill my son. Oh, my God. He’s going to kill our son.
Dina: I told Marwan that Behrooz took care of the girl.
Navi: Marwan must not have been satisfied. He must have decided that Behrooz was a liability.
Dina: Why’d you let this happen? How could you let him kill our son?
Navi: What could I do? What could I do?!
Dina: He’s our son! Our flesh and blood!
Navi: Dina, listen to me.
Dina: How could you let them kill our son?
Navi: Behrooz stopped being our son a long time ago.
Dina: How can you ay that?
Navi: Because it’s true. Living here has changed him. He’s been like a stranger to us. He proved it to me today that he no longer believes in our cause. Maybe… he never did.
Dina: Behrooz, Behrooz… Oh, my God.
Driscoll: Secretary Heller would like to say a few words to you.
Heller: I’m incredibly privileged to have the finest people on the world behind me: all of you. It’s gonna take a lot more than a few words to express my feelings but for now from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Heller: Please, sit down. Erin, my daughter and I owe you our lives. Sounds like you had to make some tough calls, but you made the right ones. I’ll see to it that you get full recognition for a job exceptionally well done.
[Driscoll eyes Jack, as if expecting him to educate Heller on what really happened. Jack says nothing.]
[Audrey goes through photos of the slain terrorists.]
Audrey: No. No.
Jack: You’re absolutely certain you saw this guy before the compound?
Audrey: Positive. I could tell that he recognized me.
Audrey: No. No.
Jack: That’s all of them.
Audrey: He must have gotten out before the rescue.
Jack: OK, but we should go through the pictures again just to make sure.
Audrey: I will, but there are only two men here who aren’t Middle Eastern, and neither one of them are him.
Audrey: I just remembered where I saw him before.
Audrey: There was a heritage foundation dinner about two months ago at the Hyatt downtown here.
Jack: Do you remember his name?
Audrey: No, but I know someone at the foundation. Maybe I can get the guest list.
Jack: OK, good.
Woman: Agent Bauer, Driscoll wants you in the conference. The call is starting in a few minutes.
Jack: OK, fine. I need you to get a hold of the Hyatt hotel security department. Get access to their archival video surveillance. Audrey will give you a time and a date, set up per amative and keep Driscoll informed. I’ll be right back.
[From another room, Paul sees Jack place his hand on Audrey’s shoulder. He becomes suspicious.]
