Jack learns of a man named Jacob Rossler, a programmer who has links to Ivan Erwich. Rossler has agreed to reprogram the detonators on the canisters. Erwich threatens a mechanic at a garage to cut open the canisters to access the detonator. Logan, Mike and Martha discuss the best way to handle the Cummings situation, with Martha wanting to tell the public the truth. McGill has personal problems involving his sister, a drug-addict, that draw him away from work. McGill is attacked by his sister's boyfriend who steals his money and his CTU access card.

Jack and Curtis infiltrate Rossler's apartment and apprehend him. At his apartment they also find a young Ukrainian girl Rossler has kept in captivity as a sex slave. A deal is authorized in exchange for Rossler's help, but the girl shoots Rossler, killing him.

In summary,here the events that happened during that hour:

1.President Charles Logan chastises Walt Cummings for getting involved with terrorists. Walt justifies himself by telling him that their plan was to detonate the nerve gas at the terrorists home base, until Ivan Erwich found out about his plan. Mike Novick considers to cover up Cummings' involvement to the media, but Martha thinks Logan should tell the truth. Later, Novick calls Logan and tells him to come downstairs to see that Walt Cummings has apparently hung himself.

2.Lynn McGill talks to his drug-addicted sister, Jenny, who needs money. The two meet outside CTU, when Jenny's boyfriend hits Lynn from behind and steals his money and his CTU key card.

3.Ivan Erwich tells a mechanic named Cal that he and his team needs his help cutting into the canisters. Rossler gives Erwich specific instructions on how to cut them, on the phone. Rossler tells him they need to meet and Erwich agrees to call back in five minutes.

4.At Counter Terrorist Unit, Bill Buchanan tells Audrey Raines that President Logan has temporarily reinstated Jack. Chloe identifies the man from the intercepted conversation from Erwich. A man named Jacob Rossler, a software programmer.

5.Jack Bauer and Curtis Manning raid Rossler's apartment and apprehend him. Erwich calls Rossler as Jack listens, and Erwich tells him he has the identification keys for the canisters. However, as they are about to move him, Rossler's female companion shoots him much to Jack's dismay. Curtis tells Jack that Rossler's was their only link to Erwich and he will call any minute.

Things get moving in this episode of 24.Events happens as fast as they could and there seems to be no dull moment in it.That is why the fun continues at 24.The excitement and entertainment have gone up a few notches higher.
