At 11:19:27, Cole and his away team return to CTU with Walker. He hands her over to Hastings, who favors Walker with a heavy-lidded glare before leading her away. Unaware of the present dynamic, she asks about all the stuff they're doing to try to track Kiefer, and Hastings assures her they're doing everything possible. "Why don't you have any leads?" Walker presses, stupidly. Well, because you killed him, Renee. Hastings rounds on her and says as much, and adds, "I know about your suicide attempt. You should have been honest with me." He parks her into a meeting room with Chloe to take her statement, and instructs the latter to take Walker to Medical for her psych eval when they're done. For once Chloe doesn't argue. She joins Walker and gives her an electronic pad and stylus to write her statement on, because CTU is so goddamn high-tech they don't even allow spiral notebooks in here. Walker sits down and says that Hastings is right to blame her for what happened to Kiefer. Chloe disagrees, but Walker's in a guilt spiral and it's going to take more than what Chloe can offer to pull her out of it. "What they're doing to him right now, it's because of me," Walker says. Chloe tells her to focus on the task at hand: write her statement and she'll check back later. Hopefully before Walker fills up more than one page with longhand, because it's not at all clear what you're supposed to do after that.
Down on the floor, Dana approaches Cole and asks if he can talk. Cole tries to put her off because he's working on something with Arlo, but of course Arlo's all, "No, we're good." He smirks after them as they go off to a semi-private part of the floor, Dana fiddling with her engagement ring the whole way. Cole asks if she's okay, and she says she isn't. She says she has a big problem, which is why she's been acting weird lately. Cole starts to tell her this is the worst possible day to call off their engagement, but Dana is shocked at the very idea that he would think that. Indeed, if he knew her at all, he'd have guessed by now that she's living under an assumed name after having fled a criminal past that has now caught up with her and is blackmailing her into coordinating inside jobs with her CTU security access. I mean, Occam's Razor, you know? She begins, "There are things about my past that I haven't told you." She's got his attention, but is having trouble going on until he encourages her to continue. "I don't want to lose you," she says. He assures her he isn't going anywhere. Well, except he is, because just as Dana's about to start talking, another field agent interrupts to say Hastings wants to see Cole in his office. Cole tries to put it off, but Dana lets him go. "Talking to you has helped," she says. "I think I know what I need to do now." Well, that can't be good. Cole asks if she's sure, and says she can tell him what this is all about later. "Hmm, mm-hmm," she smiles fakely, But as soon as he goes to see Hastings, her eyes go full Starbuck.
