Kiefer's only lead gets into the shower in the hotel suite. A bathrobed Kayla watches him dreamily, then hears her phone ring again at 2:55:34. This time she finally answers. Hassan quietly tells Kiefer that Kayla's on the phone, and Kiefer says he needs an address. Dalia is already asking her that, but Kayla is still playing coy with her mom, assuming Hassan put her up to it. Dalia then asks if Tarin's with her, and she says not right now, because he wants to stay incommunicado. Dalia breaks the news to Kayla about Tarin being a mole, and Kayla eye-rolls about Hassan's "paranoid delusions." Dalia says it's coming from CTU this time. "You know I loathe your father's behavior and the way that he's handled everything," Dalia reminds Kayla, to demonstrate her sincerity, while behind her, Hassan is looking like, I'm right here. Kayla's in denial about Tarin, who is now getting out of the shower. Dalia asks her again where she is. Finally, Kayla quickly rattles off, "The Teodore Hotel, Suite 514." Dalia tells her to stay where she is, while Hassan relays the location to Kiefer.
Tarin sees Kayla on the phone, and she acts innocently busted as she tells her mom she'll call later. "Please don't tell father we spoke," she lets Tarin hear her say before hanging up. The whole next scene occurs with them still pointing those loving smiles at each other, even though I'm doubting Kayla's going to be getting sprayed down again any time soon. Tarin reminds her of their agreement, and she says she didn't want her mom to worry. "Did you tell her where we are?" he asks. She shakes her head. "Do you think I am stupid?" she asks sweetly. He comes over to her, saying, "You know I could never think such a thing. You are perfection." And it's a credit to his skills as a spy that he can say that without barfing. After a quick kiss, he tells her to get dressed, for their meeting at the State Department. "At this hour?" Kayla asks. She makes excuses about being tired, but he's politely insistent. He hands her her folded-up suit, which she carries into the bathroom. She closes the door and locks it, and Tarin's smile fades. Of course he didn't fail to notice that she suddenly doesn't want to dress in front of him. Rookie mistake, but then she's only been a freelance undercover operative for a minute or so.
