Day 1

She had been dating Alexis Drazen not knowing his terrorist connections, and had planned to meet him for a rendezvous in his hotel room. During an intelligence briefing given by Aaron Pierce she recognized his face. Jack Bauer and George Mason met with her and convinced her to use her next meeting with Alexis to plant a homing device on him. The hotel room was bugged with fiber optic cameras. Jack called her after she planted the device in Alexis's wallet, but she turned off her phone. Instead of leaving, she stabbed Alexis with a letter opener. She later claimed that she had gone into a blind rage when he said he loved her.
