By this time, Kiefer has found some underground workshop or something where he can pin Logan against the wall and remove his mask. Wow, he looks angry. He should put the mask back on, it's less scary. Logan cowers pathetically, of course. Kiefer tells Logan about what he got from Tokarev's cell phone. "I know how it looks, let me explain!" Logan whines. Kiefer accuses, "You sent him to kill me, right?" Logan can't cop to it fast enough. Kiefer asks why Logan ordered the hit on Walker, and Logan says he was brought in after that happened, by Taylor. Even though he basically stalked Taylor until she agreed to talk to him, in secret, after "bringing him in" through the back entrance so nobody would see him. Logan yammers quickly that he called his sources in Moscow, who told him about the conspiracy. "I told the Russian delegation I had evidence to that fact and the names of everybody involved, just to keep them in the conference!" Kiefer demands to know what evidence, and Logan says he was only bluffing about that, but it worked. "But you, you were determined to screw things up," Logan accuses. Kiefer socks him in the gut for that one, and Logan admits that while he's part of the cover-up, he had nothing to do with the conspiracy, the terrorist attack, "Or your friend's death. I'm not the bad guy here." Doesn't he mean "this time?" Kiefer puts his gun back up to Logan's throat and says, "But you know who is." He wants the name of the Russian official who gave the order, and starts counting down five seconds. The two more than he gave Dana must be out of respect for Logan's former office. "Mikhail Novakovich!" Logan yells over the counting. Kiefer raises his gun to Logan's face and says, "You're lying," just to make sure he isn't. Logan invites Kiefer to check the rest of Tokarev's phone log for calls from Novakovich. Hearing a noise coming from somewhere, Kiefer slaps a hand over Logan's mouth, which someone should always be doing at all times anyway. "Say another word and I'll drop you right here," he threatens. The cavalry is approaching, at 1:33:53. Kiefer drags Logan into another room and forces him to his knees. "Please don't kill me, Jack," Logan begs. Kiefer hisses in his ear, "If I was going to kill you, you'd already be dead." But he's more than happy to apply one of his famous sleeper holds. Kiefer leaves the inert ex-POTUS on the floor, and somehow gets out -- without Jason or any of the CTU guys seeing him -- before Jason finds Logan on the ground and has Eden call the paramedics for his boss. And given what happened after Kiefer and Logan's last tense tête-à-tête, three seasons ago, a bug-sweeping team might be in order as well.
