In other splitscreen windows, Ethan is still unconscious on his couch, NYPD cars are driving around with sirens on, right past Tarin's van, and the remainder of the evacuation party is reunited. Of course the only survivors are Kiefer, Walker, and the Hassans. Also, Taylor sits in her improvised situation room, probably wondering where the fuck her Chief of Staff and Secretary of State are. And at 5:57:45, Dana leaves her desk to answer a cell phone call. No one even pays attention when she does that any more. She went from Miss Perfect to That Coworker in one night.
It's Samir calling, in his warehouse where welding is apparently done nonstop around the clock. He's wondering why he hasn't heard from her. She says it's because CTU doesn't know anything. In other words, there's no word on whether Taylor is cooperating. "We lost communication with the security detail about twenty minutes ago." Samir figures this means Taylor isn't giving in. Dana starts trying to reason with him: "You use that bomb, you lose your leverage." Samir says Taylor has left him no choice, and the blood will be on her hands. "Samir!" she hisses into her dead phone after he hangs up.
