In mid-robbery, Jack blacks out the security cameras. He removes his mask.
Driscoll fights to stay calm in the midst of crisis. She learns that Andrew Paige was taken to the hospital and that two Middle-Eastern men were found at the site with gunshot wounds to the head. She is furious that Jack is still at large with the suspect. Curtis tries to convince her to focus on Heller instead, but she wants all tactical teams to locate Jack.
Jack orders all the customers in the store to hand over their wallets and cell phones. He also takes Kalil's gun. Jack gets the keys from the clerk to lock the front door.
Jack calls Chloe to tell her about his staged robbery. She still doesn't have the satellite up. Curtis summons her to a Driscoll briefing, and she is forced to log off the system.
Curtis ignores Marianne when she asks to be included in the briefing. Driscoll informs her staff about Andrew's safety and Jack's intervention. As she speaks, Driscoll checks to see Chloe's reactions.
After the meeting, Driscoll has Sarah bug Chloe's system. She is sure that Chloe knew about Andrew, which means she's been in touch with Jack.
Meanwhile, Jack has the clerk open the store safe. He inquires about its armored truck scheduled delivery, which isn't for another two hours. Kalil whispers to another customer that he must do something to stop the thief.
Omar is frustrated because Kalil is not answering his phone. He sends people to the area to find him. Omar orders another henchman to boot up the routers instead of waiting for Kalil. Heller begs Omar to let Audrey go. Audrey sees that her father is having trouble breathing. She begs a guard that he needs his nitroglycerin for his heart condition.
Sarah tells Driscoll that she hasn't seen any communication between Chloe and Jack. Chloe speaks to Edgar privately, asking him for help because she can tell that Sarah has tapped into her system. Chloe admits to assisting Jack, and she needs Edgar to do the satellite instead. Edgar only relents because Chloe has been helpful to him in the past. Neither of them notices that Marianne has heard the entire conversation.
Heller becomes enraged despite Audrey trying to calm him down. Suddenly, Heller keels over and moans in pain. Audrey summons the guard for help because her father is having a heart attack. The guard radios for help and unlocks the door. Heller jumps him from behind. Audrey is surprised, but manages to grab a hammer and slam the guard in the stomach. She grabs his gun. They run out of the cell, and Heller shoots two more guards. They are captured by Omar, who threatens to kill Audrey if another one of his men dies.
Kalil discreetly grabs a can of bug spray from the shelves. He tries to spray Jack, but Jack takes him down. "You try that again, and I will kill you," Jack threatens. A police cruiser pulls into the parking lot, and Jack sends all the customers into the freezer. He orders the clerk to make the cop go away. The policeman is suspicious, and Jack takes him in too. He grabs the man's gun, radio and handcuffs. Jack locks him in the freezer with the others.
Dina brings a tray of iced tea to Debbie and Behrooz. Dina apologizes for treating her poorly in the past, and questions Debbie about following Behrooz. Debbie says that she hasn't even spoken to anyone else today. Dina goes to the kitchen to make a phone call.
Dina calls Navi to let him know that Debbie didn't tell anyone about the warehouse. He says to have Behrooz "do it" because he needs to be responsible for the problem he created.
The police radio beckons and Jack has the cop answer the call. As the policeman responds, the store clerk yells for help. The operator radios that she will send help.
When Sarah still turns up nothing, Driscoll thinks that Chloe might be using someone else for access. Sarah questions how much time she should be spending on this, but Driscoll orders her to find out how Chloe is helping Jack.
Sarah sees Edgar working on a satellite screen, and he says that he is merely looking for Jack as instructed. Edgar tells Chloe that Sarah wants to nail her, and he is worried that he will have to take the fall too.
Driscoll gets a call from her 18 year-old daughter Maya. Maya says she hasn't taken her medication and begs her mother to come home. Driscoll convinces Maya to take her pills, and she promises to call back later.
Dina takes Behrooz aside and says that she and Navi decided he has to be the one to "take care of this." Dina hands him a gun.
Scared for his girlfriend's life, Behrooz warns Debbie to leave the house because she is in danger. Debbie collapses, gasping for air. Behrooz looks to his mother with tears in his eyes. She has drugged Debbie. "I didn't expect you to be able to do it," Dina says calmly as Debbie dies.
Police cars arrive at the convenience store. They phone Jack, who threatens to use tear gas on the hostages. The police ask him to let everyone go and keep the one officer as hostage instead.
Chloe calls Jack to say that she finally has satellite coverage. He tells her that the suspect will be traveling on foot. Jack takes Kalil out of the freezer saying he will be used to help escape. Jack walks out of the store with Kalil at gunpoint so that the officers don't shoot. He gets in the back as Kalil drives.
When Kalil questions his motives, Jack says that the convenience store is a money drop. He has Kalil pull over and start running on foot. Jack takes the wheel and phones Chloe. She has the suspect on satellite, and downloads the info to Jack's PDA.
Driscoll gets a call from her neighbor, who says that Maya went into his backyard and screamed at his young son. Driscoll asks Sarah to call LAPD to find out who was dispatched to pick up her daughter. Maya suffers from schizophrenia. Driscoll wants the police to cancel the call because she will take care of it, claiming that CTU has preemptive authority over local. Although Sarah knows this is illegal she agrees to send an agent to bring Maya back to CTU's clinic.
Curtis finds out that Jack is tracking the suspect with the satellite. Driscoll tells Chloe that she is being arrested, and she orders Edgar to take over Chloe's system. She makes Chloe call Jack, who has identified the suspect. Driscoll sends a team to pick up Kalil, which enrages Jack because he'll lose the trail to Heller.
Edgar pulls up the satellite feed that shows Kalil flagging down a car and then beating up the motorist. He takes the man's wallet and cell phone. Sarah tracks the cell tower in that area to see who Kalil contacts. Kalil calls Omar to tell him he's coming in.
Marianne lets Edgar know that she is aware of his helping Chloe behind Driscoll's back. "I want to make sure I have your attention whenever I need it," she says, menacingly.
Sarah plays Kalil's call back for Driscoll. They hear that the terrorists are preparing Heller for the broadcast. Jack was right.
As Jack drives away, he is stopped by a blockade of police cars. With guns drawn, they order him out of the car. Jack exits with his hands raised. He lays face down on the ground as the cops approach to apprehend him.
