On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM, Martin Beckin arrives in the conference press of David Palmer. Meanwhile, Nina calls Tony and explains that CTU is infiltrated and they find that Jamey is a spy and the conspirators are using CTU surveillance cameras to monitor the interior of the facility. Jack is forced to bring a wallet with a weapon inside the press conference and deliver it to Martin. Tony calls Aaron Pierce from the secret service and tells that Jack is compromised. Gaines orders to execute Teri and Kim.

Right now, terrorists are plotting
to assassinate a presidential candidate.

My teenage daughter is missing.

And people that I work with
may be involved in both.

I'm Federal Agent Jack Bauer.

Today is going to be
the longest day of my life.

It is just after 7:00 a.m.
on the West Coast...

...and the California Primary
is now officially underway.

We're here outside the San Clarita
Power Plant in Los Angeles...

...where Senator David Palmer will
be addressing local labor leaders...

...and some members of the
state energy council.

The senator has pledged
support for renovations...

...that would advance this
power plant to production.


Bauer's on his way. Are you in yet?

- Just about.
- Good.

create thousands of new jobs.

This promises to be a landmark day...

...as it is expected that Senator Palmer
will get the delegates he needs...

...to become the first African-American
presidential candidate...

...of a major political party.

Of the 11 states that will be
looking for delegates today...

...California is expected to be crucial.

And most of the polls say that David
Palmer will win by a decisive margin.

Have you decided?

I've rewritten the speech I was
going to give this morning.

I'm going to tell them about Keith.

What are you going to say?

The truth.

That seven years ago he was involved
in an accidental death.

I need you to stand by me, Sherry.

It's the only way to protect Keith.

For the man seen as the best hope...

...for their country's financial future.

I will never forgive you if something
bad happens to my son.

He's my son, too.

We'll get through this.

I hope so, David.

We caught up with some voters
who started lining up at 6:00 a. m.

Hey, ma.

Good morning, honey.

Where's your sister?

Oh, she changed her mind. She's not going.


Yeah, she went to the airport
to pick up Susie and Rachel instead.

Oh, that's right. The Brenner girls
are flying in.

So, uh. what's gonna to happen this morning?

We have to put this thing behind us, Keith.

By me being in prison and
you in the Oval Office?

Is that how we're going to put it behind us?

You're not going to prison.

You didn't do anything wrong.

That's not how a jury will see it.

Why don't you just have a little
faith in the system?

What's this fairy tale
that you're living in?

The world's going to believe that I
killed a white kid who raped my sister.

Do you think that anyone will believe
it was an accident?

Yes, I do.

- Then you're a fool.
- Keith, no.

No, that's all right.

You talk about fairy tales.

You think you can run from this?

You think it's going to make things better?

I'm not running anywhere.

I'd just rather not spend my last
hour of freedom with you.

Let's go and get this over with.

Martin Belkin?


Hi, I'm Jessica Abrams.

I work for Senator Palmer.

- Hi.
- Pleasure to meet you.

Can I help you with..

- I got it.
- Okay. Great. Follow me.

Is the senator here yet?

Not yet, but he is on his way.


I am a huge fan of your work.

- Thank you.
- Right this way, please.


I'm going to be taking some
photographs of the senator.

I need a check on a Belkin: B-E-L-K-I-N.

First name, Martin.

Clear on Belkin.

All right, copy that. Thank you.

You can go in.

Turn right at the light.

You see the bus stop on your left?


Pull over to it.

Hey, Jack.

How are you doing?

Don't touch it until I tell you to. Now, go.

I'm not going anywhere until I can
talk to my wife and my daughter.

Oh, you'll do this, because
it really isn't an inconvenience...

...for me to hurt your daughter.

Or your wife, for that matter.
In fact, here she is.

Would you like to speak to your husband?

Say anything you want.
Tell him you love him.

- Jack.
- Teri?

I don't know where I am yet,
and I haven't seen Kimberly...

You were saying, Jack, you're
not sure you wanted to do this?

That's what I thought.

San Clarita Power Station.

417 Ridgeway Road. Get over there now.

This is only temporary, Mrs. Bauer.

If Jack follows instructions, you'll
be released within the hour.

Where's my daughter?

She's here and she's safe.

Could you take me to her, please?

- Hey.
- What, Milo?

- What happened to Nina?
- She got called out.

What am I supposed to do about this keycard?

Because this was supposed to be the
most important thing we're doing.

They brought me in here
on the highest priority...

...and now I'm just sitting around.

I think Nina's got some new intel
that preempts this.

That's why she had to run out.

So, what should I be doing?

Why don't you help me format some files?

They didn't bring me in here
at 5:00 a.m. to format files!

Does this kid Milo know he's working
on the wrong keycard?

Is this going to be a problem?

Nina Myers is dead.

Make up a story for why she's not there.

- Mom!
- Kimberly!

It's okay.

It's okay, honey.

Where's Dad?

I don't know.

He knows we're in trouble?

Yeah, he does.

He's doing everything he can, baby.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

No, no, no, no. it's not your fault.

It's not your fault, honey.

Why don't you tell me about these boys?

I met them through Janet, and...

She started dating this guy, Dan...

...and his friend Rick came into
town and we just hang out and... oh, God.

They kept you here the whole time?


Janet was hit by a car.

I know.

You do?

We are going to get through this.

I promise you.


Come on, Jamey! Pick up!

- Almeida.
- Tony.

Nina, where've you been?

I can't get into it.

Well, force yourself. Where are you?

Just east of downtown.

What are you doing there?

Tony, you have to listen to me carefully.

No one at CTU can know I'm alive.

Who would think you were dead?

I can't tell you any more right now.

Where's Jamey?

She's working with Milo.

Get her for me.

No, not until you tell me what's going on.

Please, Tony. This is an order.

I need your help.

All right.

Threatening emails, hate mail for Palmer.

This is a giant waste of time.

When is Nina coming back?

Probably not for a couple of hours.

What makes you say that?

I just talked to her.


A couple minutes ago.

She's at Division.

It's possible she'll be there all day.

What do you need?

Never mind.

Look, if somebody doesn't tell
me what's going on right now..

...I'm going to Chapelle.

I told you, I have to speak to Jamey.

Yes, and I just heard her tell Milo that
you'll be at Division all day.

Oh, my God.

- What?
- Who did she hear that from?

She said she talked to you minutes ago.

Nina, what is going on?

We can't trust Jamey.

Jack said CTU had been infiltrated.

Are you saying Jamey's a spy?

Why else would she lie?

She must think I'm dead.

Why would she think that?

I'll explain later.

You have to bring me back in now.

Okay, I'll come get you.

No, stay there.

Act as if everything is all right.

Jack was behaving very
strangely back at CTU.

These people must be watching us.

I don't know, probably through
our own surveillance.

All right, look. I'll send a car.
What's your address?

Senator. How are you?

Copy that.

GAII you have to do now Jack,
is get through security.

Jack Bauer, CTU. I've been
cleared by Frank Simes.

All right, I'll need you to open the case.


What do you need a laptop for?

Everything that we've compiled on Palmer
over the last eight hours is in there.

You want to lift that up, please?

Turn it on.

Press any two buttons.

All right, go ahead.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Where is Senator Palmer now?

He's on his way up.


Excuse me.

Jack Bauer?

Jessica Abrams?

Yeah, Hi. What are you doing here?

I'm working security.

How many years has it been?

Since high school?

Yes. I'm sorry, I've got to get going.

Are you still racing motorcycles?

Keep moving, Jack.

Not since my daughter was born.

I'd like to catch up.

Maybe later. I've just got to get going.

Great, I'll be here.


What do I do now?

You'll hand the briefcase
to one of our people.


I'll tell you when it's time.

Go wait by the buffet table.

But now our election
coverage shifts to the polls.

Back east, we've had some
interesting developments.

Good to see you.

Senator, I'd like you
to meet Martin Belkin.

Good you could make it, Martin.

Jessica says you're the best.

Thank you.

I look forward to working with you.

Honey, you're so tired.


I brought you some breakfast.

Is Kim okay?

Who are you?


You kidnapped my daughter.

I didn't know.

How could you not know?

I tried to help her get out, okay?

Gaines wants to go
over some things with us.

What's going on here, Rick?


Don't make friends.

I wasn't.

Good, they ain't gonna be
around much longer.

- What do you mean?
- Move it.

Okay, time to move,
Jack. Head across the floor.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.

Okay, Jack, head towards the south wall.

Hello, Jack.

Hello, Jess.

Do you remember Tracy Zigler?

Yes. I just saw her last winter.

Well, we keep in touch and she said
you and Teri got divorced.

Get out of there.

No, we just got separated.

Jared, take care of this.

If you want to get in touch,
reach me at this number here.

Are you all right?

I'm fine.

- Sorry.
- No, it's fine.

- You sure?
- Yeah.

He's heading across now.

Make a left in front of the turbines.

Show him your ID.

Jack Bauer, CTU.

That's my boy.

- Thank you.
- Thank you.

Go to the end.

On the left is Medical Station 3.

I'm here.

It's where I want you. Go in and wait.

Oh, my God. What happened to you?

I'm okay.

You don't look okay.

Is it safe to come in here?

Yeah, I looped the cameras.
They can't see us.

Why is Jack doing all this?

They've kidnapped his wife and daughter.

How long have you known this?

Not long.

You chose not to tell me.

That's right. I was acting on orders.

Screw orders!

Tony, I'm sorry.

Where's Jamey?

She's still working with Milo.

So what do you want to do?

Restrain her and call in Division?

No, we can't call anyone yet.

- We've gotta do something.
- I know.

This whole thing must be about Palmer.

They're using Jack to stop
the investigation?


Hang on. We've got to do something.

You sure this room is dark?

I checked the log. There are
no active cameras.

We've got to call Secret Service.

No. The people holding Teri and Kim
will think Jack gave the order.

I hate to say it, but it's not our problem.
We have to protect Palmer.

We got to make the call now.


Jack wouldn't put Palmer's life in danger.

Let's try to find out more
before we do anything.

Are you ordering me not to call
Secret Service?

No, you're right.

Hi, it's Tony. Can you get
me Agent Pierce's number?

Assemble it.

You want my prints on this weapon?

Do you really think that anybody's going
to believe that I shot David Palmer?

You better put that away.
Somebody might get hurt.

We're watching the Senator work the room
before he gives the speech.

Milo, come here.

You were right.

About what?

The keycard was a forgery.
We found the original.

- Where?
- Jack's office.

Why did he swap it out?

It doesn't matter.

I sent it to Archiving to make
a backup of all the data.

Then, it's going straight to you.

You'll have to work quickly.

Just get it to me.

A forged keycard?

What's that about?

I have no idea.

She's squirming.


This is Pierce from Secret Service.

I called because we have some
new information you should know about.

One of our agents, Jack Bauer,
might be there today.

Yes, he's here. I cleared him.

We learned that he may
have been compromised.

He may not be acting to protect the senator.

Are you saying he's a threat?

Yeah. Take the appropriate actions.

She's on the move.

Okay, ladies restroom.
Second to last stall.

The cameras are on a 20-second loop.

Am I clear?

No, not yet.

Go. Got 20 seconds.

Get out! Now!

Grab it! All of it. Go!

Can you tell if expectations
are high in the party for the speech?

I got to keep you guys working.

The fatter your paycheck, the more
taxes you can afford.

That's right, Senator.

Excuse me, guys.

What's up?

I just got a call from CTU.

We need to get you out, sir.


There's a problem with one of their agents.

What kind of problem?

He could be a threat to you.

If he's one of ours, why don't you
find him and take care of this quietly?

We are trying, sir.

I'll tell you what.

I'll lose the face time,
but the speech stays.

There's something I have
to say this morning.

With all due respect,
I think it's a mistake, sir.

This information comes directly
from CTU headquarters.

I am sure your people will
take care of this.

All Right! Everyone on the floor,
listen up. This is Pierce.

Palmer has decided to proceed.
I repeat, Palmer will remain.

We need to locate and detain a suspect...

...whose name is Jack Bauer.

Bauer is 5'11".

Blond hair, 160 pounds.

He is wearing a dark brown jacket
that may display CTU ID.

This is Hayes. Spotting
is possible on Bauer.

How would you like me to proceed?

All right. Hold your position.
I'll be right there.


Hi, Jamey.

What's this all about?

Why don't you tell us?

I have no idea what you're talking about.

Who were you contacting in the bathroom?

None of your business. It was personal.

Are they the same people who
set me up to be killed?

Set you up to be killed?
What are you talking about?

We don't have time for this.

Talk to us, Jamey. Who's got Jack's
wife and daughter?

- What are they making Jack do?
- I don't know.

Richard Walsh is dead.
So is Scott Baylor.

You'll be charged with
murder and treason.

I suggest you start telling me
what's going on.

They said no one would get hurt.

Who are they?

I can't tell you.

Tell us everything you know!
It's your only way out!

Do you understand!

I was just supposed to tap into the
surveillance of all the security cameras.

Then they asked me
to send messages from inside.

What messages?

What messages!

Mostly about Jack.

Then about the keycard.

I didn't know this was going to happen.
You have to believe that.

Fine, we do. But now
you need to help us.

Who were you doing all this for?

No. I have to talk to someone first.

What? No! There is no time, Jamey.

Palmer is exposed. Jack's family is
in danger.

You have to start talking to us now!

All right, Jamey.

I'll make sure they cut you a deal, okay?

No. I'm not saying anything,
not until I get Agency counsel


As Mayor of LA, I'm often given
the opportunity...

...to meet some truly remarkable people.

People that strive for the greater unity.

People that work to make
our world a better place.

One of those people is here today.

And "remarkable" only begins
to describe this man.

Ladies and gentlemen, the next president
of the United States...

...and my good friend, David Palmer.

I love you, Kimberly.

You know that?



It's important that you know that.

Mom, if you're feeling guilty
about our fight yesterday...

...I'm over it.

I just want to get home.

It's not why I'm saying that.

We're stuck in this awful place...

...and I just want you to know that
you're not alone.

Mom, you're scaring me.

Sounds like you're saying this
'cause something bad will happen.

No, no.

It's just...

I'm trying to explain to you what a simple,
powerful thing my love for you is.

So, no matter how bad things get...

...or how good they get,
that's not going to change.

I just don't know how to do
anything but love you.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.

I'll be right back.

Thank you, Mayor Nelson.

And thank you, kind citizens
of Los Angeles.

Identification, please.

You know, this country depends
on a healthy economy in California.

And the nucleus of that economy is energy.

All right, Jack. Step out.

We're ready for you.

To do what?

Relax. It will be over in five minutes.

...is standing right
here in this room today.

It's you!

Do you see the photographer?

The men and women
who serve this industry...


Go over and join him.

After he shoots Palmer,
he will hand you his weapon.

You've got to be kidding me.

I know you'll be tempted to intervene
but you must believe me, Jack...

...if you do, your family dies and we'll
get Palmer anyway.

I understand.

When I started my campaign,
over a year ago...

...I made a promise to you
who've supported me.

That my campaign would be built on
integrity, commitment...

...and above all, honor.

Thank you.

Thank you.


Thank you.

Integrity, commitment, honor.

Anything less would be unacceptable.

Agent Bauer.

Alan Hayes, Secret Service.
I need you to come with me.

- What's the matter?
- No problem. Just come with me.

Seven years ago...


Blanket Palmer.

- Get him out of here.
- Get Sherry.

I can't see exactly...

Palmer's being shielded.

But why?

Bauer? Bauer? What's happening?

Did you screw me?

I didn't do this.

Do you understand?

Please, don't hurt my family.

Don't hurt my family.

I'll help. I promise. Please!

That's it, we're done.
Kill the wife and kid!

Get out of here!

I don't have time for this.

- Hello?
- What do you want?

Division picked up
Bauer at the power plant.

They've been looking for him all night.


He's been breaking protocol
since you got to him.

Damn it!

Take me!



Mom! No!



Please don't...



I still need them alive.

Both of them?

Yes. Take them back.

No! No!
