INT. PALMER HOTEL

 

AGENT PIERCE: Folks I know you’re all busy so I'll be as brief as I can.

 

SHERRY PALMER: Good. You’re just in time.

 

SENATOR PALMER: What's going on?

 

SHERRY PALMER: Bauer sent over photos of the people targeting you.

 

AGENT PEIRCE: The threat against Senator Palmer remains a high probability. We have gotten a significant piece of heads up intelligence. These three men are the suspected shooters.

 

[Elizabeth Nash sees Alexis's photo and freaks out as she runs out of the room]

 

SENATOR PALMER: Elizabeth what's wrong?

 

 

***FADE OUT***

 

 

 

 

INT. THE SAFE HOUSE

 

NINA MYERS: Okay Kim but the fact is Rick ran away before we could talk to him

 

KIM BAUER: He was scared.

 

NINA MYERS: Apparently. Whatever explanation he has doesn't change the fact that he's a fugitive and if you know where he is and aren't saying anything, that in itself constitutes for a serious....

 

KIM BAUER: I don't know where he is.

 

NINA MYERS: Are you sure?

 

KIM BAUER: What I'm sure of is that he helped us escape and if it wasn't for him we would have never gotten out of there.

 

NINA MYERS: Kim. When people are taken hostage it's not uncommon for them to feel a certain bond with their kidnappers.

 

KIM BAUER: Rick isn't a kidnapper. Anyway I don't know where he is.

 

 

TERI BAUER: Sorry Nina. Whenever your ready we can pick up were we left off.

 

NINA MYERS: Ah..Sure. Kim, why don't you take a break and your mother and I can finish up here.

 

[Kim walks out of the room]

 

NINA MYERS: Sure you’re okay to do this?

 

TERI BAUER: Yes. Are you sure?

 

NINA MYERS: Yeah.

 

TERI BAUER: Listen Nina, I don't want you to have to tiptoe around me. Jack and I were separated when you slept with him. I'm not going to hold that against you.

 

[Nina gets herself together]

 

NINA MYERS: Okay um, you and Kim have both said that Rick helped you. Talking to Kim I get the sense that she's withholding something.

 

TERI BAUER: Based on what?

 

NINA MYERS: She's protecting Rick. She seems to have feelings for him from what I can tell.

 

TERI BAUER: There may have been an attraction when she met him last night but if Kimberly knew anything she'd tell you.

 

NINA MYERS: Sure about that?

 

TERI BAUER: She's my daughter I think I know her better than you.

INT. C.T.U. JACK'S OFFICE

 

[Phone rings]

 

JACK BAUER: Bauer.

 

SENATOR PALMER: It's David Palmer.

 

JACK BAUER: Sir, Is everything all right?

 

SENATOR PALMER: I'm not sure.

 

JACK BAUER: What's going on?

 

SENATOR PALMER: A member of my advance team Elizabeth Nash, She recognized one of the assassins in the photos you sent Secret Service. Victor Drazen's son Alexis.

 

JACK BAUER: Does she know where he is?

 

SENATOR PALMER: There in contact.

 

JACK BAUER: Contact? What do you mean? In which context?

 

SENATOR PALMER: Intimate.

 

JACK BAUER: Senator, Is this person in a position to endanger your security?

 

SENATOR PALMER: I'm afraid so. Look she's pretty shaken up but she wants to help.

 

JACK BAUER: Good. We have to bring her into C.T.U. and question her. I'll get a helicopter to you in a few minuets.

 

SENATOR PALMER: I'll have her ready.  Jack? What about Ellis? Did he retrieve the missing file on Operation Nightfall?

 

JACK BAUER: I lost contact with Ellis.

 

SENATOR PALMER: Lost contact? What do you mean?

 

JACK BAUER: We got interrupted in the middle of our phone call. Sir I have to be honest with you I've got a very bad feeling about this.

 

SENATOR PALMER: So what are you saying to me?

 

JACK BAUER: I'm telling you that for right now we have to assume that Ellis is dead.

 

[The Senator is shocked]

 

SENATOR PALMER: Keep me posted.

 

JACK BAUER: Yes sir.

 

[HANG UP]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

 

 

 

[Kim calls Rick for the second time]

 

RICK: Yeah.

 

KIM BAUER: Rick it's Kim.

 

RICK: Hey.

 

KIM BAUER: This woman here, she’s really pushing me hard.

 

RICK: What did you tell her?

 

KIM BAUER: The truth. I told her that you helped us escape.

 

RICK: That's really going to save my ass. I'm sorry. I'm a little edgy right now.

 

KIM BAUER: Look I just think that if you tell her what happened it'll work out.

 

RICK: She won't believe me.

 

KIM BAUER: I don't know how much longer I can keep covering for you.

 

RICK: Okay okay. Can she prove anything?

 

KIM BAUER: I don't think so.

 

RICK: That's all that matters. Listen I appreciate what you’re doing and all but you probably shouldn't call here. Least not for a while.

 

KIM BAUER: How long?

 

RICK: I don't know. I got to go. [HANGS UP]

 

[Rick's Girlfriend enters the room]

 

MELANIE: Who's that?

 

RICK: Don't know. Just a wrong number.

INT. THE SAFE HOUSE

 

[Nina still questioning Teri Bauer]

 

NINA MYERS: So is there anything else you can tell me about Gaines? Maybe a conversation you overheard?

 

TERI BAUER: Who's Gaines?

 

NINA MYERS: Ira Gaines, The leader of the group.

 

TERI BAUER: Right.

 

NINA MYERS: Teri.

 

TERI BAUER: No I'm fine.

 

NINA MYERS: Maybe we should take another break.

 

TERI BAUER: Maybe you should do your job Nina. Don't you have a job to do?

 

NINA MYERS: I wish it were that simple.

 

TERI BAUER: Things tend to get complicated when you screw your boss.

 

NINA MYERS: Look this obviously isn't working.

 

TERI BAUER: No it's not. I'm sorry. I thought I could stay calm and rational about this but I can't do it.

 

NINA MYERS: There's no apology needed but I think Paulson should finish up here.

 

***FADE OUT***

 

 

 

INT. C.T.U. JACK'S OFFICE

 

[Jack puts on some new cloths when George Mason walks into Jack's Office]

 

JACK BAUER: George. What are you doing here?

 

GEORGE MASON: I'm the new quarterback.

 

JACK BAUER: Since when?

 

GEORGE MASON: Since right now?

 

JACK BAUER: What about Alberta Green?

 

GEORGE MASON: Back at District.

 

JACK BAUER: So Chappelle thought you'd do a better job keeping an eye on me than she would.

 

GEORGE MASON: I don't know Jack something like that.........So it’s really Drazen's boys that are after Palmer?

 

JACK BAUER: This whole day has been a revenge plan for killing their father.

 

GEORGE MASON: I know why they're gunning for you but why are they after Palmer?

 

JACK BAUER: [Sighs] Senator Palmer was head of the subcommittee that authorized the mission.

 

GEORGE MASON: You got Ellis tracking down the missing file on that operation right?

 

JACK BAUER: I had Ellis. I lost contact with him twenty minuets ago.

 

GEORGE MASON: You think they took him out?

 

JACK BAUER: Yes I do. We got a break on another front though. [Jack walks over to his computer.] A Miss Elizabeth Nash, part of the Senator's Advance team identified one of the shooters from the photos I sent over. She's been dating him. She had no idea who he was. She's pretty shaken up but she's on her way here for a debriefing.

 

GEORGE MASON: Which one was she seeing?

 

JACK BAUER: Alexis Drazen. She's supposed to meet him in his hotel room in an hour.

 

GEORGE MASON: Good, That will give us time to stage an arrest.

 

JACK BAUER: George think about this. What if she keeps her date? We would have the upper hand in this thing for the first time. See what we could learn.

 

GEORGE MASON: Don't know Jack it's a little risky.

 

JACK BAUER: I'd have a squad across the hall ready to go before anything could possibly happen. George? I think this a big opportunity just to pass up.

 

GEORGE MASON: What time is she getting here?

 

JACK BAUER: Ten minuets.

 

GEORGE MASON: We'll talk to her then make up our minds.

 

JACK BAUER: Absolutely.

SENATOR PALMER: Keith come here.

 

KEITH PALMER: What's up?

 

SENATOR PALMER: I know we haven't had a chance to talk since last night and it seems like every time we do we're at each others throats.

 

KEITH PALMER: Everything's okay between you and me dad.

 

SENATOR PALMER: I guess you noticed that we haven't been on the same page today.

 

KEITH PALMER: It's been hard to miss.

 

SENATOR PALMER: The pressure's on. It's testing all of us.

 

KEITH PALMER: For sure.

 

SENATOR PALMER: That's what I wanted to talk about. It stayed in my head what you said about of hours ago. About how Dr. Faragamo has always been there for you when you needed someone and I wasn't.

 

KEITH PALMER: I'm sorry but that's just how it was then.

 

SENATOR PALMER: That's all going to change. Starting now. I know I can't earn your trust overnight. If you just come to me when you need to talk, I promise you son I'll always be there.

 

KEITH PALMER: [Smiles] Thanks dad. So what about Faragamo? Did the police say anything?

 

SENATOR PALMER: We haven't called yet.

 

KEITH PALMER: What are we waiting for?

 

SENATOR PALMER: We're not putting anything off Keith. It's just something else has come up. Listen to me. We have a security breach in our staff. We have to deal with that first.

 

KEITH PALMER: What kind of security breach?

 

SENATOR PALMER: I can't tell you.

 

KEITH PALMER: [Upset] Dad. You can't tell me anything.

 

SENATOR PALMER: Look Keith I have to be able to make decisions around here without you challenging me.

 

KEITH PALMER: Look everything your feeling, now’s the time I need you dad. Not just to talk to me, but to do the right thing.

 

SENATOR PALMER: Keith.........I will do the right thing at the right time.

 

KEITH PALMER: I'm sure you will.

MILO: Jack, don't worry your going to be back up in your office by tomorrow.

NICOLE PALMER: The last time you tried to protect me someone died.

 

KEITH PALMER: Nicole, please.

 

NICOLE PALMER: I'm sorry. That was a terrible thing to say.

 

KEITH PALMER: The less you know----

 

NICOLE PALMER: What's going on? Who were you talking to on the phone?

 

KEITH PALMER: You trust me, don't you?

 

NICOLE PALMER: Trust goes both ways Keith.

 

KEITH PALMER: Carl.

 

NICOLE PALMER: Why?

 

KEITH PALMER: Because I don't want to spend the rest of my life with the regret I've been living with for years.

 

NICOLE PALMER: You didn't kill Gibson intentionally.

 

KEITH PALMER: Yeah but I kept the truth from coming out. Now with Faragamo dead, I can't do that again Nicole. I won't. I need your help.

 

NICOLE PALMER: For what?

 

KEITH PALMER: This Secret Service guy has been dogging me all day. I need you to help me get past him.

 

NICOLE PALMER: He's here to protect us Keith.

 

KEITH PALMER: Everything that has been happening today, everything that's still happening. It's not too late to change the way this all plays out. Now do you trust me or not?

KEITH PALMER: Okay good.

INT. CTU JACK'S OFFICE

 

 

JACK BAUER: Victor Drazen had two sons. We know that Alexis Drazen is here. I think we should assume that Andre Drazen is here as well.

 

GEORGE MASON: With at least two other shooters right?

 

JACK BAUER: Potentially a third assuming Ellis is dead.

 

GEORGE MASON: Hear she comes...........Miss Nash, George Mason District Director. This is agent Bauer.

 

ELIZABETH NASH: Mr. Bauer. Senator Palmer told me about you. He said I should do whatever you tell me and I could be sure that I'd be in good hands.

 

JACK BAUER: I appreciate that. I also have to say if you wish to have a lawyer present you're entitled to that but in no way we consider you a suspect. We just want to ask you a few questions.

 

ELIZABETH NASH: I don't need a lawyer. I'll cooperate in anyway I can.

 

JACK BAUER: Okay.

 

GEORGE MASON: Come on in.

 

INT. CTU CONFERENCE ROOM

 

ELIZABETH NASH: Can I have something to drink?

 

JACK BAUER: I'll get you a glass of water.

 

[They all sit down]

 

GEORGE MASON: So. How did Alexis Drazen represent himself to you?

 

ELIZABETH NASH: He told me he ran an import company out of Berlin. He seemed successful. He gave me this on our third date.  It must have cost him $10,000 dollars. It's real. Which is more than I can say for him.

 

JACK BAUER: When did you meet him?

 

ELIZABETH NASH: About a month ago. In D.C. I'm with the Senator's Advance team. We had some down time and a few of us went out for drinks.

 

GEORGE MASON: So you met him at a bar?

 

ELIZABETH NASH: When you’re working on a campaign, you basically put your life on hold for a year. There are always people around but it's lonely.

 

JACK BAUER: You’re supposed to meet Mr. Drazen in his hotel room in about an hour?

 

ELIZABETH NASH: That's right.

 

JACK BAUER: Miss Nash. Would you be willing to keep your appointment with Alexis?

 

ELIZABETH NASH: You want me to spy on him?

 

GEORGE MASON: Well only if you feel comfortable. If you have any doubts at all.

 

JACK BAUER: We would keep it simple. We want you to plant a tracking device on him so we can trace his locations.

 

ELIZABETH NASH: It's just the thought of seeing him again.

 

JACK BAUER: We would make it so that we could hear and see everything that took place. You would be safe.

 

[Elizabeth shakes her head no]

 

GEORGE MASON: It's okay. We understand. Jack you want to head on over to the hotel? I'll finish debriefing Miss Nash.

 

JACK BAUER: Yeah.

 

ELIZABETH NASH: Mr. Bauer? You say that this might help protect the Senator?

 

JACK BAUER: Yes I think it would.

 

GEORGE MASON: The Senator is perfectly safe. He's got a team of Secret Service Agents with him around the clock.

 

ELIZABETH NASH: Well that didn't stop Alexis from getting to me did it? And if they got to me, they might have gotten to somebody else.....................I'll do it. If something happened to Senator Palmer that I might have prevented... I could never forgive myself so please. I have to do this.

JACK BAUER: We're ready to go gentlemen. I'll fill you in with the rest of the team when we get to the hotel. Don't be nervous. I'll be with you every step of the way.

 

MILO: Jack I got to talk to you.

 

JACK BAUER: Excuse me.  [To Milo] What?

 

MILO: They just found Ellis's body in a men's room in the French Quarter.

 

JACK BAUER: Do we have any leads yet?

 

MILO: No not yet.

 

[Nina Myers enters the building]

 

JACK BAUER: Keep me posted. [To Nina] What are you doing here?

 

NINA MYERS: There was no reason to stay. Teri and Kim are doing fine.

 

JACK BAUER: I specifically asked you to stay to make them feel safe.

 

NINA MYERS: They are safe Jack, I settled them in. Paulson and Breheer are taking care of them and the extra security team is in place.

 

***FADE OUT***

 

 

[The car chase continues] 

 

TERI BAUER: Hang on Kim.

 

[They lose Jovan for a second as Teri and Kim drive down a side street. Jovan drives right past it. She stops the car]

 

TERI BAUER: You okay honey?

 

KIM BAUER: Yeah.

 

TERI BAUER: I think we lost them. I just want to check stay in the car.

 

[Teri gets out of the car and walks up on a hill not seeing Jovan's car anywhere.]

 

[THE CAR FALLS DOWN A HILL WITH KIM INSIDE AS SHE SCREAMS. TERI RUNS BACK AS THE CAR EXPLODES. TERI STARES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL AND THEN SHE DROPS FACE FIRST ON THE GROUND PASSING OUT.]

EXT. GRIFITH PARK OBSERVATORY

 

KEITH PALMER: He's dead isn't he? Faragamo's dead?

 

CARL: I have no idea.

 

KEITH PALMER: Don't try to blow me off Carl.

 

CARL: The authorities are looking into it. Let them do their jobs.

 

KEITH PALMER: We both know they won't find anything.

 

CARL: I have gone through this your father.

 

KEITH PALMER: My father is his own man and so am I so now you go through it with me.

 

CARL: Okay, okay. What do you need?

 

KEITH PALMER: Faragamo was there for me when nobody else was. I might not be alive today if it wasn't for him.

 

CARL: He also betrayed your confidence Keith. He's the one who went to Maureen Kingsley.

 

KEITH PALMER: That still doesn't justify murder.

 

CARL: What exactly are you trying to do? Bring him back to life?

 

KEITH PALMER: No I want justice.

 

CARL: Justice? Well justice is a tricky thing Keith. Take Lyle Gibson foe example. You want justice for that?

 

KEITH PALMER: Gibson's death was an accident.

 

CARL: Maybe so, but let's be objective. He rapes your sister, you pay him a visit. He ends up dead. Accident could be a tough sell.

 

KEITH PALMER: So If I go public with the truth about Faragamo, You go public with a lie about Lyle Gibson? Is that what you’re saying?

 

CARL: Oh Brother. [He walks away]

 

KEITH PALMER: There's one catch Carl. There are two cover ups and you’re involved in both of them so however it plays out is bad for you.

 

CARL: I can take care of myself.

 

KEITH PALMER: No no, the moneymen behind my father’s campaign take care of you. If things get ugly your the one who takes the fall. Or maybe they'll do to you what you did to Faragamo.

 

CARL: You are in way over your head.

 

KEITH PALMER: And you’re getting nervous. I can smell it.

 

[Carl grabs Keith]

 

CARL: Okay you listen to me. Whatever you think you can do to me or anyone else it'll be a hundred times worse for you.

 

KEITH PALMER: I'm not so sure.

 

CARL: Well I am. Because if you push things too far they will do whatever they have to do.

 

KEITH PALMER: Killing David Palmer's son might get a little messy.

 

CARL: I think they will be a little more subtle than that.

 

KEITH PALMER: I'm not following you.

 

CARL: There is some physical evidence in George Faragamo's office that leads directly to you. Subtle enough so the fire marshals didn't find it the first time around but with a little help. They'll find it.

 

KEITH PALMER: So I'll be framed with Faragamo's murder.

 

CARL: Like I said whatever it takes. That's why your father backed off and that's why you'll back off.  [Carl walks away]

 

{Keith pulls out a recorder and presses play]

 

RECORDER: So I'll be framed for Faragamo's murder..........Like I said whatever it takes. That's why your father backed off and that's why you'll back off.

 

[Presses stop]

 

***FADE OUT***

 

 

 

EXT. SIDE STREET

 

[Teri wakes up]

 

[A car stops next to Teri]

 

TANYA: Hey, You okay?..........What happened?.......What's your name?

 

TERI BAUER: I don't remember.

 

TANYA: You don't even know your name? Well you can't stand in the middle of the road. Come on get in I'll give you a ride.

 

[She gets in the car]

 

TERI BAUER: Thank you.
