  • Though the China Queen was not seen in Season 4, Cheng did make good on his threat to kidnap an American operative during Season 5, albeit with a different ship. In "Day 5: 6:00am-7:00am," Jack Bauer was kidnapped by Cheng, who tells him that China had a long memory and had not forgotten what happened at the consulate during Season 4, and that he was going to pay.
