Other splitscreen windows remind us of the existence of such characters as Hassan and Hastings, Chloe and Dalia, Dana and Prady, and Cole and Samir. People whose existences we are not reminded of: Walker and Taylor, who weren't in this episode at all. They could be anywhere, walking and tayling, respectively.
Cole and Kiefer talk to an NYPD officer, since the local cops get to the Teodore Hotel faster than CTU can. But Kiefer reminds the officer that they need to take Tarin alive. Another reason it's a good thing the assassination plot against Hassan didn't work, because in case you need to be reminded, Tarin was in the car. It's 3:00:00, and Cole joins Kiefer to go catch and question a man whose life he just saved eight hours ago.
