We open in East London. Several agent-looking men walks through a crowed area.

At the CIA's London station chief Steve Navarro is coordinating a mission. We see that Kate Morgan is packing up her desk. She's leaving at the end of the week. She's told that a high-value subject has been tracked to London. They wonder if it's related to President Heller being in town.

Back on the street with see agent Erik Ritter leading his team into a building. It turns out the target is none other than Jack Bauer.

Jack's escapes the building, but chooses to run outside and is eventually grabbed near the river.

President Heller talks with his staff about a close parliamentary vote to extend the US's lease at a base in England. The controversial subject of drones comes up. After the meeting Chief of Staff Boudreau mentions to Heller that he made a mistake in a story he told. Heller tells him "don't worry about me."

Boudreau gets a call from Navarro about Jack. Boudreau says he'd rather turn Jack over to the shadowy "Special Activities" unit and puts those wheels in motion.

Kate tells Navarro the way Jack attempted to escape from the building seems strange to her. She thinks Jack's "up to something."

We see the U.S. drone pilots at work on the base. A pilot named Tanner is told by his superior, Shepherd, that he made a mistake on his previous mission and will not be getting his upcoming leave. Tanner is upset.

Navarro plans to talk to Jack before Special Activities takes over.

Kate asks Erik if she can look at the intercept that brought them Jack. He says she's not cleared for that.

Another agent named Jordan brings Kate the intercept. They realize the tip was a plant.

Navarro sits across from Jack in the interrogation room. He suggests that talking to him is probably Jack's best option, with a Special Activities transfer on the way.

We see that Chloe is already in the custody of Special Activities, and is being tortured.

Boudreau looks through Jack's file. We see that he is married to Audrey Raines.

Boudreau tells his deputy Clark that perhaps the best thing for the country is for Jack to disappear. He wants Clark to look into handing him over to the Russians, in part because of what he thinks Jack did to Audrey.

Reed discovers the intercept for Jack came from an internet café three blocks from where they grabbed Jack. Kate thinks Jack may have sent the tip himself.

Kate pulls Navarro out of the interrogation with Jack and tells him what she's learned. Word comes that Jack's transfer order has come through. Kate sneaks into the room where Jack is being held and locks the door. Jack doesn't say anything, but his pulse seems to jump when she mentions him being there for someone. Kate tells Navarro she thinks Jack may to be transferred to Special Activities. Navarro takes her credentials and tells her to leave.

Kate takes out the guard who was taking her out and stuffs him in a room. She calls Jordan and asks him to look for anybody in the building who has a history with Jack.

Ritter brings Jack to Special Activities. After Ritter checks in via the video camera, Jack takes out both of the men guarding him.

When the Special Activities guy opens the door Jack has a gun on him. He brings Jack to Chloe, who is unconscious. He knocks out the guy and gives Chloe some adrenaline.

At this moment Jordan tells Kate that Chloe is being held with Special Activities on a treason charge. She walks down to Special Activities and sees that Erik is down and Jack is gone. She has Jordan execute a lockdown.

Kate temporarily stops Jack's escape. But he signals to an accomplice on the surface who blows a hole through the roof and allows Jack and Chloe to climb out and get into the waiting truck.

Audrey asks Heller about the mistake he made during the meeting. He admits "it's progressing faster than the doctors thought." He seems to be in the early stages of some type of dementia.

Kate tells Navarro and Erik they have to go through Chloe to find Jack. She asks Navarro to put her in charge of finding them. She reminds him that he dismissed the head's up she tried to give him earlier.

Jack gives Chloe a secure cell phone and drops her off. Once she gets out the other man asks Jack why he didn't just ask Chloe for help.

Someone takes control of Tanner's drone and points it at Shepherd's convoy. Tanner calls to warn Shepherd but he doesn't move in time. A missile explodes into the convoy.



Season 9 Episode 2

"12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m."

Jack Bauer attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever...[button color="red" size="small" link="" target="blank" ]Official Site[/button]



Open with Kate going through Chloe's effects from Special Activities. She calls Ken, a friend with local police, and asks him to look into Chloe's phone.

Navarro tells Erik he's being teamed with Kate to find Jack. Erik's not happy.

Chloe reunites with a hacker-type organization with which she'd been working. She tells the leader of the operation, Adrian Cross, that she'd been taken by the CIA and broken out by Jack. When Adrian hears this he tells everybody to shut things down. At this point Jack and his partner break in with guns drawn. Jack is looking for somebody named Derek Yates.

Jack intercepted intel related to an assassination attempt on President Heller, and Yates' name was connected. Adrian says he's no longer with them. He'd been selling information and hacking into military systems so Adrian gave him the boot. Chloe has members of the team begin searching for Yates. And she's not happy Jack didn't simply ask her for help.

We see that Yates was behind the drone strike. He is in the back room of a sleazy apartment, being protected by what look to be drug dealers. He gets a call from the woman who is purchasing his "device" and Yates assures her the US military has no clue what he's doing and that he's already arranged for the perfect patsy.

Tanner is questioned by military security. He explains what happened. His name has been associated with negative comments written online about Shepherd and all the records seem to indicate that Tanner's keystrokes targeted Shepherd's vehicle, killing four

While meeting with British Prime Minister Davies, Heller is told about the drone strike. Two of those killed were British which could jeopardize discussions for a joint military project.

Navarro calls Boudreau and tells him Jack's escaped with Chloe. Boudreau's not pleased.

Chloe asks Jack why he's doing this. Jack says he owes Heller and his family. Chloe is shown video of the friendly fire drone attack. The drone was piloted on a base in England using the same system Yates had been hacking. Adrian gives Jack the name of a heroin dealer named Basher with whom Yates had been associated. Chloe offers to come with Jack and give him comm support.

Heller tells Boudreau he wants to call Davies and ask to speak to parliament directly. Boudreau thinks it's a mistake. Heller wants them to bring in Tanner so he can be interrogated. Heller wants to apologize directly to parliament, but Boudreau thinks they'll shout him down. Boudreau is also concerned that Heller "isn't at the top of his game."

Boudreau tells Audrey about her father's plan. She thinks he can handle it if they prepare him.

Yates tells his girlfriend the U.S. president is about to be killed on foreign soil. He thinks the doomsday clock will be started and he'll be watching it from Greenland.

Kate tells Navarro she's tracked a possible hit on Jack and Chloe's cell phones to a housing project.

Jack pulls up in front of Basher's building. Chloe will stay behind in the van to provide him assistance.

Heller preps for parliament with Boudreau and Audrey. He struggles with some of the toughest potential questions. Boudreau is tough in the prep and Audrey seems bothered by it.

With security camera help from Chloe, Jack is able to get into Basher's apartment. He offers Basher the chance to trade his life for Yates'.

A fight ensues. Jack comes out on top, but Yates sneaks out the back. Adrian calls Chloe with word that a convoy is headed their way.

Kate and Erik's team surround Chloe's van but find it's empty. Jack surrenders as Yates walks by the agents. Jack yells at Kate to stop Yates, but Basher opens fire. Jack is wounded and is able to sneak away.

In a parking lot Jack sneaks up from behind Kate and disarms her.

He tells her what he's trying to do before knocking her out. Chloe pulls up in a stolen car and drives Jack away.

The flashdrive Jack got from Yates' computer indicates he was behind the drone hacks. The program begins to self-destruct and Chloe can only save a few schematics.

Yates thinks he needs to find a new buyer. He think Jack was sent by Margot, his previous buyer. Yates' girlfriend kills him in the bathroom and takes his device. Outside she pulls off a wig and calls Margot. She tells Margot she has the device but warns her about Jack. We learn she is Margot's daughter.
