After the disbandment of CTU; Bill Buchanan, Tony Almeida, and Chloe O'Brian set up a safe house at a vacant building, where they worked covertly to unravel a massive conspiracy within the Allison Taylor administration. ("Day 7: 11:00am-12:00pm")
Day 7[edit | edit source]
With Jack Bauer's help, the FBI apprehended Tony Almeida, a "terrorist" with apparent ties to the Juma regime. They allowed Jack, once a close friend of Tony's, to interrogate him. During the interrogation, Tony whispered an old CTU phone number, "Deep Sky," into Jack's ear. Jack then called the number on his cellphone and was answered by Bill Buchanan, who was at the safe house with Chloe O'Brian.
Bill explained that Tony was working undercover with the terrorists to gain access to Iké Dubaku, who could reveal the names of the numerous government officials on his payroll. With Chloe providing interference, Jack broke Tony out of FBI custody. Bill left the safe house to extract the two from the Bureau's headquarters. ("10:00am-11:00am")
Now at the safe house, Jack asked for an explanation, specifically for how Tony survived being "killed." Tony told him that it was David Emerson's people who revived him, and that he ran with Emerson's crew for over three years, doing some "pretty bad things." He explained that it was when Emerson had him gather parts for the CIP module, a device capable of inflicting mass casualties, that he became disillusioned with the crew. Bill added that the device's buyer was Dubaku, who used Sangala's vast diamond wealth to bribe a large number of government officials, and that the only way to stop the conspiracy was by reestablishing Tony's cover with Emerson. Jack agreed to help them, and headed out with Tony to Emerson's hideout at 2211 Chesterfield. ("11:00am-12:00pm")
After rescuing Prime Minister Ule Matobo and his wife, the former CTU agents, along with FBI agent Renee Walker, brought them back to the safe house. Jack said they were not equipped to search for Dubaku, and advocated bringing an outside agency into the loop. Bill and Tony were strongly opposed to this, but Matobo insisted that President Taylor could be trusted. Bill conceded, and had Chloe place a secure call to the White House.
While on the phone with the president, Matobo requested a private meeting with her in the Oval Office, which she accepted. Jack, Bill, Renee, and the Matobos left for the White House, but Tony said he was going to stay behind to "follow up on a lead." Jack let Tony go under the pretense that he would turn himself in as soon as Dubaku was captured. ("2:00pm-3:00pm")
