At the police station, J. Daniels gears up and briefs George Marx on the situation with Eric Carter. Marx calls out to Carter, asking for his demands. Carter notices the time, and asks the police officers what is on the other side of the wall. When they do not tell him, Carter explains to Tim Bates that if he doesn't get the money out there will be a series of attacks. To Paul Vernon's dismay, Bates explains that behind the wall is a stairwell leading to a maintenance room. Carter takes the explosive charge off Vernon and places it on the wall.
Outside the room, Daniels fills Marx in on Carter's background in the Special Forces. They suddenly hear an explosion from the room, and Carter takes Bates with him as he leaves through the hole in the wall. Troops then break into the room, free Vernon and begin pursuing Carter. Bates leads Carter to an exit, but police are gathering outside so Carter doubles back. He asks Bates for another route, and Bates asks him to confirm the terrorist attack. Carter does so, and Bates starts leading him to another exit on the roof.
However, troops appear and corner the two of them, so Carter holds Bates at gunpoint. Daniels, on the phone, tells everyone to stand down, and explains to Carter that he has Rebecca Ingram on the line for him. Carter takes the call and Ingram explains that Mullins is not the leak, and he is up to speed on everything. Mullins tells him that a CTU TAC team is on the way to help him in his meeting with Ben Grimes. Carter tries to resist but Ingram explains that he needs to go to the meeting with CTU's help. Carter hangs up, shares a nod with Tim Bates, and leaves to get his vehicle.
In the CTU holding room, Andy is released and Mariana tells him Mullins is about to brief everyone. Ingram apologizes to Mullins, but he tells her to do it another time. She asks if she can be the one to question Nilaa Mizrani, and Mullins agrees, telling her to take Agent Fox with her. Thomas Locke is briefing three CTU agents when he notices Andy walking nearby. He walks over and apologizes for shutting Andy out and the way things ended between them. Andy replies that Locke was the one who ended it.
Mullins then addresses the room, telling them that there is a high probability of terror attacks imminently. He tells everyone to stay focused, as this is now their number one priority.
