Hassan tries to appeal to Tarin, suggesting he stop the car. "Stand against me at home. Join the opposition. Fight me openly, honorably." Tarin points out that Hassan has already lost. Hassan guesses at the plan: "You'll put me on trial? Dark room and a video camera, I suppose. A man hiding behind a mask will read a list of my crimes and cut off my head with a sword? The world will be impressed." Tarin claims Hassan did worse, but Hassan says he did it to make the country stronger. "I wanted us to join the world. I wanted to have peace." "You wanted the cover of Time Magazine!" Tarin yells at him. "You think I don't know you, Omar? I watched over you day and night, remember? Watched over you while you betrayed your own wife with a Western whore. You care for nothing but yourself." Wow, judgy much? Hassan admits he's made mistakes, "but believing in peace was not one of them." "Think whatever you like," Tarin says. "You won't be around to find out." Hassan looks sad, and even a little teary. It's 6:36:48. Who knew he'd miss his Western whore so much?
6:41:04. Taylor waits pensively outside Ethan's office until he's wheeled out on a gurney, with an oxygen mask strapped to his face. She tells him he'll be treated on base, "but then I want you right back here," she says warmly. "That's an order." She makes the medics stop so she can lean in and say, "You have always been true to me, Ethan. I need you now. Hurry back." Maybe she's trying to motivate him to recover by appealing to his sense of duty, but jeez, lady, let the poor dude have some sick time. Maybe you could let him recover for at least as long as his heart attack lasted. Now Taylor has to deal with Dalia and Kayla Hassan, who have just arrived. Walker's in the room with them as Taylor greets them, and has to tell them that Hassan is "in the hands of the terrorists, but we're tracking him on satellite." She offers to let them watch in the Situation Room, and says she'll be right there as she sends them on ahead. So, everyone on the national security team is cool with her inviting the first family of the IRK into the Sit Room? I guess it doesn't count if it's not the real one. Before following them, she turns to Walker and says seriously, "I didn't expect to see you again, Ms. Walker." Walker looks a little nervous. "But in these last few hours I have learned how few people I can really trust. I am glad you're here." Walker looks a little surprised as she thanks her, but says she can do more at CTU. Taylor says her aide will get her a car, and she clasps Walker's hand gratefully before joining the Hassans in the Sit Room at 6:43:16. So even if Hastings does decide to go after her, that sounds like an implied presidential pardon to me. Not that those aren't passed out like candy on this show.
