At 11:19:43, Arlo interrupts Chloe's vital busywork to report that one of Cole's agents from the laundry just managed to get free and call in, after Kiefer failed to fall for the trap and, according to the agent, took Cole hostage. Chloe turns to a desk jockey named Devon (who's certainly benefiting from CTU's growing shortage of mid-level speaking roles) and tells him to pull up satellite on 14633 12th Street. "Why?" Devon asks impertinently, apparently already bucking for a demotion. Instead of giving him one, Chloe explains that that's where Dana's being held, and thus where Kiefer is going. Arlo's a little slow on the uptake, so Chloe has to explain that Kiefer didn't fall for her trap; "He probably knew what I was going to do before I did." She turns to everyone and announces, "Jack Bauer's no longer in custody of CTU." Which he actually hadn't been since he stole that helicopter almost an hour and a half ago, but never mind. "Agent Cole Ortiz is with him, most likely as a hostage. Our priority is to find them now." Devon puts the satellite picture up on the big screen, and there's a shot of corpses being loaded into ambulances. Chloe takes one look and immediately decides, "We're too late." It doesn't seem to occur to her for a moment that one of those bodies might be Kiefer's, and indeed, why would it? She reissues the APB on Kiefer and orders, "Get me the White House." I think she means the U.N., because nobody's actually at the White House right now. Dingbat.
