10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Presidnet Taylor is informed by Ethan that Tony wasn't the leading man in this operation and that the CC device is not in the FBI's hands. She is also told by an agent that the firewall can be fixed in six days, but time is not a luxury here especially when Dubaka sends a recorded message demanding for a U.N. dispatch of the American troops surrounding Gen. Manjuma's dictated area in Africa or else there will dire consequences. Being a large threat level President Taylor wants the people of American informed but in a way that doesn't create a huge panic. Panic is not something they want in this free land especi9ally when they now have two reasons that will both lead to devastating destruction for them and for us, there is almost no way out of this however they could withdrawal the troops in that area before 1:00 p.m., their new deadline to meet demands but it's too risky. But luckily Dubaku tells Gen. Manjuma to be patient and give the American's some time. Meanwhile President Taylor's husband Henry returns and meets with Ethan, Ethanm tells him that his wife is in need of him no more excuses for his paranoid escapades, he promises to stay with his wife as possible but he knows his son didn't kill himself even if the evidence is shown in front of his fact, which it literally is. Henry soon gets a call from Samantha asking for him to come meet her a private conversation, he must come alone. Back at the FBI headquarters they are at a level 4 lock down. Renee tells Larry that someone within their headquarters in a rogue agent working for Tony, concerned but mad Larry demands that for now on he will be apart of the loop between Bauer and herself. Janis Gold hears this bit of information form Renee and becomes suspicious of Sean, a good friend of hers. She soon uncovers the truth that Sean has been breaking the law and looking at top software systems and files form their headquarters, she believes him to be the traitor-But that's not the case the real case is that he only did this so he could check on his wife who is on a plane soaring through the sky, with the nick earlier he had to do something. Later on Sean makes an important call trying to land that very plane for emergency reasons. Tony is interrogated by Jack, finally Tony speaks out his reasons, hey are intense, rebellious, and strongly pessimistic upon the government and as soon as he mentions Jack Bauer's late wife Terry Jack goes nuts all over him but Renee tells him to back off immediately. Jack is given a phone code from Tony and uses it to call someone very important in Tony's case; Bill Buchanon. Bill Buchannon and Chloe are within D.C. operating above the law believing that the system is corrupted. Bill reveals to Jack that Tony is innocent, he's with them and has been working undercover. Jack goes along with this and is given a time limit to escape with Tony in 10, Chloe can't keep hacking into the FBI's firewall for long. Jack takes advantage of Renee and chokes her till she is unconscious, takes out Larry and another agent and helps free Tony from custody the two, guided by Chloe make it out of the building and to the parking lot where they are given a ride from Bill. However thanks to Janis they are being chased through D.C.

This episode was pretty intense and really blew my mind by it's many twists and turns, I didn't see half of these coming they were so cleverly written and well thought out to avoid your typical cliché.

The action sequences are well done.

The action in particular is outstanding. It's nice to see James Morrison return after such a long time gone.

The story structure is well played out.

The conflicts and the tensions as well the relationships between the characters are gold and the suspense is heart pounding.

The best episode yet.
