As Wayne drives, Jack treats Evelyn’s wounds. She explains that she hid a recording of a phone call in a safe deposit box. The call was between the President and Henderson. Jack takes the key to the box. With all the military roadblocks in place, Wayne pulls up to a motel.
Jack calls Audrey, who says that Chloe couldn’t reposition the satellite to track Henderson. He asks her to involve her father as a credible source to present the evidence. Jack warns Audrey to get out of CTU because they don’t know who they can trust.
Wayne locates the bank manager’s home address. He and Jack carry Evelyn and her daughter into a motel room. It’s not safe for her to be taken to a public hospital. Jack cleans Evelyn’s wound, and she thinks she will be able to stay on her own. Jack and Wayne leave.
Henderson tells Logan that he doesn’t know where Evelyn hid the recording of their conversation. Yet he is having all hospitals monitored because she was wounded. “It all spiraled out of control when you decided to kill David Palmer,” Logan admonishes.
Karen starts to doubt to Miles whether Homeland’s takeover of CTU was even necessary.
President Logan calls Karen and inquires about Jack’s whereabouts. He orders a warrant for Jack in the death of David Palmer. Logan wants it to be CTU’s top priority because he has “new evidence.”
Karen is wary of this recent directive, especially since it means pulling resources off finding Henderson. Miles suggests they keep an eye on Audrey because Jack will try to contact her.
After Chloe puts Audrey’s cell on a secure channel, she learns about the evidence against Logan. Suddenly, Chloe’s computer is alerted that a warrant is issued for Jack. “It’s starting,” Audrey says ominously.
Karen approaches Audrey, who claims to be leaving to get sleep. Karen says that the new evidence implicating Jack is coming. She cannot tell them who ordered the warrant, but she admits that it is odd. Audrey lies and says she hasn’t had contact with Jack in over an hour.
Karen wants Audrey to lead them to Jack, so she has a field agent place a transponder on Audrey’s car.
Jack and Wayne break into the bank manager’s home.
Jack threatens to shoot the man and his wife, demanding access to the bank. The man gets dressed to go and Jack has Wayne tie up the wife.
Audrey leaves the CTU parking lot and calls her father who is aboard a jet. She tells him that Jack has been framed but she can’t say anything more. Heller has his plane rerouted to the Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles. He has the stop kept off the plane’s manifest.
Audrey pulls into a gas station and pretends to fill up her tank. The field agent follows. Audrey calls Chloe, who instructs her to take a CTU walkie and scan her car. The walkie reacts with a squeal over the transponder. Audrey removes the tracker and puts it onto a DWP utility truck that has stopped to get gas. She gets back in the car and drives off.
Pierce is in the President’s office when Gardner asks about the warrant on Jack. Logan dismisses Pierce, and then admits to Gardner that he issued it. Gardner is annoyed that he wasn’t consulted even though he is in charge of the Homeland Security transfer. Logan refuses to tell Gardner any more about the “evidence” that names Jack as Palmer’s killer.
Evelyn goes to her crying daughter, but falls and hits her head. The little girl instinctively calls 911 and gives her mother’s name to the operator.
Henderson is notified that a 911 call came in about Evelyn. He heads to the motel.
Logan gives a press conference to announce that the terrorist attack has been thwarted. From inside the retreat, Martha tells Pierce that she is impressed that her husband defeated the crisis. Martha notices that Pierce is worried about something, but he covers up the cause.
Jack and Wayne go to the bank with the manager. Jack gets a call from Pierce, who warns him that Logan issued a warrant for him. Jack tells Pierce that the President is responsible for all that has happened, and that the evidence incriminating him will be passed to Secretary Heller.
Karen finds out that her field agents lost Audrey. She has Miles redirect the satellites away from looking for Jack. They need to find Audrey.
Jack forces the bank manager to lead them to the vault. The man recognizes Wayne from the television coverage of his Palmer’s assassination. Wayne and Jack admit to what they are doing there and the urgency of the situation.
A paramedic revives Evelyn. Suddenly, Henderson shoots the paramedic. He demands that Evelyn tell him where Jack is.
Martha lets Logan know that she is proud of him and she apologizes for being a burden with her breakdowns. Logan’s cell phone rings and he says he needs privacy. Martha doesn’t understand what is so critical because the terrorist threat is over.
Logan takes the call from Henderson while Martha is still sitting next to him. Henderson says that they are on their way to get Jack. Logan tells him to get it done, and Martha questions what he is referring to. Logan lies to cover it up.
Miles finds Audrey on the satellite, and Karen alerts her field agents of the location.
Shari the techie asks Chloe why she has been locked out on the satellite by a priority override. Chloe sees that the satellite is tracking Audrey.
Henderson’s commandos arrive at the bank. Jack enters the vault and retrieves Evelyn’s tape recorder. He plays it and hears Henderson tell Logan that he killed Palmer. The bank manager is floored by this revelation and gives Jack his car keys.
Jack hears something outside, and he huddles the others back into the vault. Jack sees Henderson’s armed men through his monocle.
Jack knows that Henderson’s men will kill them as soon as they step outside. He asks the bank manager how to trip the silent alarm which will bring out the LAPD. Jack thinks Henderson will order his men to shoot at the cops. This diversion might allow them to escape.
Chloe goes to the server room and corrupts the satellite signal. Miles sends the feed to the field agents, but it becomes distorted. Miles traces the error to the server. He also notices that Chloe is away from her workstation.
Chloe deletes access logs to hide her tracks. Miles goes to the server room but no one is there. He exits to find Chloe coming out of the restroom. “What were you doing?” he accuses. Chloe jokes that she’ll write a report on the details of her bathroom visit.
Jack urges the bank manager to remain inside, but the man wants to stay with Jack because he will be killed for having heard that tape.
The police arrive at the bank and Henderson has his men fire at them. In the midst of the gunfire, Jack emerges and shoots at the commandos. Wayne and the bank manager follow. A marine transport takes out the snipers. As Jack and Wayne head for a police car, the bank manager is hit in the chest with a bullet. They get him into the police car and Jack speeds from the melee.
The bank manager dies in the backseat. Jack calls Audrey, who is at the Van Nuys Airport waiting for her father to land. Jack tells her that the evidence clearly implicates Logan. This information sinks in. “We’re talking about taking down the President of the United States,” he says.
