Just as he leaves the shop, Ziya's eyes flutter open. They go to his wrecked hand and he starts in screaming like a preschooler. "You crazy bitch, you cut off thumb!" As preschoolers often scream. He's crying like she took the finger he uses to diddle middle-schoolers or something. She wisely avoids the kind of clichés one would use in dealing with a hysterical person, because telling him to get a grip or to pull himself together would be counterproductive at best under the circumstances. Instead, she claims that his share of the deal she's working on could net him millions. He's still complaining and she gets up to leave, but he tells her to wait, saying he knows where Vladimir might be. And he'll even take her there. Walker says she'll drive his truck, and helps him to his feet. Should she maybe stick that thumb in a Thermos full of ice or something before they go?
Meanwhile, in the car outside, Kiefer gets a phone call from Chloe. She just found out that Ziya has a probation officer, and is wondering what Kiefer wants to do about that. Kiefer tells her it's all covered. Chloe wonders how they're dealing with Ziya's bracelet without triggering the alarm. "Trust me, it's been taken care of," Kiefer says grimly, but won't tell Chloe any more than "Renee got the result she wanted. Ziya's taking her to Vladimir." Chloe seems to accept that and says that Dana's working on his cover ID. She says she'll call when it's ready, as Kiefer pulls out to follow Ziya's truck down the road. Which should be easy; to avoid being spotted, he can hang back a safe distance and just follow the trail of Ziya's body parts Walker will certainly be leaving as they go.
At 8:09:22, Chloe goes over to Dana's desk to check on her progress with the cover ID. Dana says she's almost finished, but Chloe keeps hovering over Dana's shoulder as her cell phone rings with a call from home, wondering if Dana shouldn't get that. Dana does, and Chloe still keeps hovering until Dana dismisses her with a hint that even Chloe can't miss. Dana tells Kevin -- for of course it is he who is calling -- that she told him not to call her. He's being as obedient and non-creepy as always. Dana says she'll see him when her shift ends in the morning, but Kevin's not okay with that, and gives her fifteen minutes to get home. But when she balks, he gives her thirty. "Who said I can't be reasonable?" he asks reasonably. But because he has to keep reminding her how things work between them now, he gives her a little preview of what he might say to Dana's boyfriend if he has to call him: "Hey, pal, congratulations on the engagement! By the way, her name is not Dana Walsh. It's Jenny Scott. And did I mention that she's an ex-con? No, nothing too serious. Just an accessory to murder's all." Whatever, like CTU hasn't employed worse. In fact, she's right in the middle of the bell curve, if you ask me. But thirty minutes it is.
