Arlo and Chloe quit eavesdropping -- because they've been listening in this whole time -- and return their attention to the issue of how to contact Jim. Arlo wonders what Chloe plans to do next. Aside from the fact that Jason will know if they divert someone, "all of our agents are fully deployed in the field. There's nobody to send." "There's one," Chloe reminds him, at 1:35:32. Oh my God, who could she mea--? Oh, it's Cole. Never mind.
1:39:52. Eden accosts Chloe in the CTU hallway, upset because she just heard that Division is releasing Cole into Chloe's custody. And if Eden's mad, imagine how Morris will feel. "In case you haven't noticed, I'm still in charge of U.N. security," Chloe snits. Why would she have noticed? "You've taken away all my resources, and not that it's any of your business, but Agent Ortiz designed the entire U.N. operation. The signing is in two hours. His assistance in the field is vital." You wouldn't think it's possible to say "vital" snottily, but Chloe's powers of snottiness are more than up to the task. Eden says she'll need to clear it with Jason, and Chloe leaves her to it. "To me you have bigger problems, like not finding Jack Bauer." Good thing Chloe doesn't have that problem.
Reed is sitting in a coffee shop, where a giant news screen is playing old (i.e. yesterday) footage of Hassan. A barista comes up to tell her she has a phone call, and she comes up to the counter to take it. Still in his office, her editor Gary tells her that the FBI showed up before he left, and they're looking for her. Maybe he'll hit the door a little faster next time one of his reporters calls him with a desperate story. He says he didn't tell them anything, but they have an executive order and are throwing around the words "national security risk," which at this point is one of those phrases that always makes me worry more about the response than the actual threat. Reed says it's a cover-up, and Gary tells her to protect the evidence. "I told them I haven't had any contact with you, but for all I know, they're tracing this call. You better get the hell out of there." "Go where?" Reed whines. He's your boss, not your dad, Reed. An agent bangs angrily on the locked glass door of Gary's office, and Gary claims to just be cancelling an appointment. Which he sort of is. While the Feds work on breaking in, he quickly tells Reed that he'll try calling someone at the Justice Department, "But until then, lay low. Now go." Reed goes.
