10:16:52. At CTU, Arlo's found an eight-minute-old traffic-cam photo of Kiefer's face that's clearer than most professional headshots, taken at 25th and Cleveland. Unfortunately, that intersection would seem to place Kiefer in one of seven other states. No sooner has Chloe given the order to have Cole redirect his search than she gets a call from President Taylor. With Logan supervising, and in a voice that sounds sick with stress and guilt, Taylor tells Chloe she wants Dana transferred off-site. Chloe resists the idea, but Taylor insists, and informs her, "Agents from a private security firm are coming there to pick her up." Chloe likes this even less, and Taylor argues, "You know as well as I do that Jack has contacts throughout the government, some of whom might be sympathetic to his situation." Chloe: "Awkward pause." "I'm not suggesting that you're one of those people," Taylor fumbles. Can anyone else here think of a better candidate? In any case, Taylor's clearly lost her personal charm as well as her ethical compass. All Chloe can say is, "Yes, ma'am." Taylor tells her that a guy named Mark Bledsoe and his team are already on their way. After Taylor hangs up, Logan tells her she made the right call. That must be reassuring, coming from him. She insists that his men use "every method of non-coercive interrogation." Logan says a little too quickly that that's already covered. "No one wants this to get ugly," he says. "Oh, it's already ugly, Charles," she huffs. Well, at least she realizes that much. I think my favorite part is how she takes Logan's recommendation at face value without even vetting the company. For all she knows he owns it and has been planning this for months.
