In Kamistan, General Wasid, a leader of the insurgency, takes a call from Farhad, as the news on television reports on the failed assassination attempt on Hassan. Wasid says it's all over; his men are being arrested by Hassan's security forces. Farhad says not to worry; he'll have the uranium soon, so long as Wasid agrees to transfer the money to the Russians today. Wasid reluctantly agrees.
Josef tells his father, Bazhaev, that Oleg - his younger brother, the one who is dying of radiation poisoning from the control rods - needs a doctor. He has found one in Mr. Vernon whose family he can threaten so he'll keep his mouth shut. Bazhaev is skeptical; how will Josef keep anybody else at the clinic from finding out? If Oleg dies, then so be it. Josef protests Oleg's dying alone, in a cold room behind the kitchen, and Bazhaev consents for Oleg to be taken to the country house. Farhad enters and says the money will be transferred shortly. When can he take possession of the rods? As soon as they have the money, says Bazhaev. Farhad says it will be five hours. Bazhaev nods, satisfied, and has Farhad pass the time with a pair of prostitutes.
As Jack and Renee cauterize and bandage Ziya's wound, Jack begins to call Hastings to tell him to abort the operation; Renee's obviously not ready for this. Renee says she's still the best chance CTU has of finding the uranium. Ziya begins to wake up. Jack puts his phone away, and says he'll be listening from the car. Ziya wakes up, screaming. Renee says she did him a favor - she got the parole bracelet off. He can whine about it, or he can be rich. Two, three million dollars. Suddenly, he's interested, and agrees to bring Renee to where Vladimir might be.
