11:31:34. A Secret Service agent ushers Russian Foreign Minister Novakovich into Logan's office, as well as the assassin who killed Samir and Walker hours ago. How totally brazen. After exchanging some tense pleasantries, Novakovich asks what Logan wants. Logan was hoping for privacy, but Novakovich assures him that his "attaché," Pavel Tokarev, is in the loop already. The attaché to the Foreign Minister of Russia does the man's wetwork for him? That's almost as shocking as the fact that he's the only male delegate in the building who isn't wearing a tie. Logan sits down across from Novakovich and explains all about Dana, a danger Tokarev scoffs at. "She was handled with complete deniability," he says, so offended that he almost doesn't look sad for a minute. Logan insists that they can't take the chance, especially now that Kiefer busted her out. As Novakovich gives his attaché a dirty look, Logan adds, "Apparently he has a personal interest in exposing this evidence." Which of course has nothing to do with anyone in this room. Novakovich points out that Taylor must want this kept quiet too (and when did he find out in the first place that Taylor had learned the truth herself?), and Logan says that he knows Kiefer. "He will never let this go. And I don't think the president is willing to do what is required." In response to this delicate statement, Novakovich bluntly asks, "So you expect me to kill Bauer for you?" Logan's like, "Yep pretty much." He tells Novakovich about having his own man running the CTU search, and the minister is suddenly intrigued. Logan pulls a "closed-channel phone" out of a drawer, saying it's impossible to intercept. Well, if he says so. "My man at CTU will use this to feed real time information to your people as to Bauer's whereabouts." But how's he going to do that when the phone is here and he's there!? Dammit, Logan blew it again. But after a pause, Tovarek picks up the phone, and both Russians walk out without another word. I guess that's a yes.
At 11:34:27, Kiefer and Cole flank Dana as they frog-march her up the steps of the bank. Kiefer says he's probably a walking "Wanted" poster by now, which means Cole will have to take Dana in alone while he hangs out in the lobby. Which is totally not a public place at all. Cole mentions that one of the bank employees is an old high school buddy of his who's helping them with a mortgage. Interesting use of the present tense, but not nearly as interesting as the fact that Dana opened her safe deposit box not only at her fiancé's bank, but at her fiancé's friend's bank. Worst spy ever. Kiefer warns Cole, "You keep her inside your strike zone. She sees an opportunity, she's going to take it. You trust her for nothing, you understand?" Dude, she's standing right there. I know she spied for the Russians and facilitated a terrorist attack and killed a bunch of people her own damn self, but that's no reason to be rude. He sends them on ahead, and Dana immediately starts in on Cole, arguing with him as they walk through the lobby. Dana is arguing that Kiefer isn't going to play nice with the bad guys, whatever he may have told Cole. "They're Russian diplomats with full diplomatic immunity...You really believe Jack Bauer wants to trust some toothless international tribunal to mete out the justice to the people who killed Renee?" Yay, Katee Sackhoff, for almost making that line sound like something a person would actually say. Cole's heard enough, and drags her along to the bank's inner entrance. "You're hurting me," she says. "You'll live," he shoots back. We'll see. They enter the bank while Kiefer hangs in the lobby, watching a bank employee in a suit -- Cole's friend, probably -- meet them and then lead them toward the back. It's 11:35:56, and Kiefer looks like he just realized that maybe letting them out of his sight wasn't his best move.
