He seethes at her that it is none of her business, but she holds her ground and says that in this situation it is. Jack backs down and says yes, he was seeing Nina. Jamey takes it one step further and asks Jack if he told Nina anything he shouldn't have.

He tells them that they are in his space and they ask him for help. He offers to sell them some dope, but this is not quite what they are looking for. They need a phone. He becomes agitated with them and pulls a knife on Kim. He asks her what her designer jeans are worth - "5 bills?", and then her shoes, another "buck fifty?"

2:53 - CTU
Tony approaches Jamey and says that he just saw a memorandum about Walsh. Jamey says that can't be, he was just here an hour ago.

2:56 - CTU
Jamey is in Jacks office with Nina and Jack. She says that the key card definitely came from Ninas computer. She has tracked the date as January 14th. The log in was at 10:14pm, 20 minutes were spent gathering data with 7 minutes to burn the card and logout came at 10:41. Jamey says that more specifics about it can be found. Nina looks puzzled and then reminds Jack that January 14th is the second weekend in January. A look of comprehension crosses Jacks face and the tells Jamey that she can go. Jack closes the door behind Jamey and stays facing it. He looks troubled and finally turns and says that the second weekend in January was the weekend they were in Santa Barbara together. Jack formulates that someone must have hacked her login code and was in her system. Nina, on the other hand, doesn't really seem to care. She is really angry with Jack for accusing her of this and tells him that he was "way off on this one". She pulls out a "how could you" and he starts to apologize as she walks away out of his office and down the stairs. She is obviously angry and Tony notices. Tony picks up the phone and calls division to inform them that Jack needs to be relieved of his command.
Kim calls Teri and tells her the truth about what happened. She tells Teri they are in North Hollywood behind a place called Plats Auto body. Kim and Janet hear the guys coming and hangs up. Teri calls 911 to get a policeman over there and Janet and Kim start to run away. Janet runs ahead of Kim and yells for her to follow. As Kim turns, Janet is hit by a Camaro, she was standing in the middle of the street. Kim runs to Janet and is crying, she is unconscious. The boys arrive and take Kim away, leaving Janet. Kim is putting up a good fight but Dan and Rick are stronger. Janet is still laying in the middle of the street, but her eyes open as the show ends.
-Jack is such the protective husband and father. His reaction when Teri tells him that they talked to the girls and they are not going to pick them up was totally believable for Jack. Also, he is protective of Teri and possibly a little jealous that Alan can be there with Teri while they wait for Kim and he can't. The tone of voice when he says Alans name was enough to make me shiver. Pure loathing in the sentence "Well, why don't you put Alan on the phone." Teris reaction to this was enough for the viewers to know that he is protective, begging Jack not to do this.
-I don't think Jack needs to tell Alan that they are in a rough neighborhood, he just almost got a bottle thrown at his head.
- that was a good pick-up by Jack about Kim telling Teri that she loves her to reduce the sentence, too bad he's dead wrong
-What was the story with the agent at the door at the Palmers hotel room. He just stood in the doorway while Keith threatened to leave. It reminded me of the guards at Buckingham Palace.
-I would REALLY like to know what the connection is with Walsh, Jack and now Jamey. Jack tells Jamey that he knows how much Walsh meant to her. Well, could you tell us Jack? I mean, this could have just been a working relationship, but it seems like there was something more than that. This never gets cleared up as far as I can remember.
-While I'm on the topic of not cleared up, I think we can safely assume that Nina did not burn the key card unless Jack got totally hosed and passed out before the evening even started in Santa Barbara so Nina had time to get back to CTU and do it. The only other person we know was working for the bad guys was Jamey. So, was it her? It doesn't seem like it could have been, I don't think she was that far into the plan. So if it wasn't Jamey and it wasn't Nina, who was it? There still might be a missing link here from inside CTU.
- I just love how Tony casually asks Jack "hey, did you cut yourself?" as he is walking past him. That doesn't look like a paper cut or something, I really don't think I'd be that casual.
-It was pretty priceless when Jack is walking up the stairs trying to wipe the blood off his hand onto the railing. I think that looks a little more suspicious than if it is on his hand. Couldn't he find a tissue?
-Kim is SO written as Jack's daughter. She is always making plans of action with Janet to get out, when she said to Janet "stay with me" it was really Jackish (is that a legit word? it is now!)
-Janet got over that seizable hit really fast. We're talking like 20 minutes or less. What kind of crappy drugs are those?
-Carl and Palmer are really funny. The best part of their conversation is when Carl says to David that he has his principles and he sticks with them, "thats why I love you". That really made me smile.
-Palmer is really mad, and rightly so. I would not want to cross him.
-Carl looks quite composed for just getting out of bed at 2 in the morning. Does he not own sweats?
-It was a really well scripted confrontation between Jack and Nina, right from the start when he walks up to her and whispers in her ear to when he is screaming at her "who are you working for?"
-When Jack is quietly asking Nina who she works for, it is way more effective for me than when he yells it at her.
-The look on that kids face when Palmer caught the bat as it was flying at him was priceless. Sign that actor up.
