In the shotgun seat of his own truck, Ziya right-thumbs the cap off a bottle and takes a few swigs, until Walker lectures that she needs his wits about him. He does seem quite calm now, considering he's only been an amputee for under twenty minutes. With Kiefer still listening in from the car behind, Ziya says, "I'm surprise you take deal to him again. After what he did to you?" Walker just asks how much further. Ziya talks about how Walker doesn't want to talk about Vladimir, and talks and talks and talks about it, until she repeats the question, louder. "Ten minute," he says. "Touchy, touchy." But at least now she isn't telling him to lay off the booze. How awesome would it be if they got pulled over and busted for an open container violation right now? That would put rather a crimp in Walker's little plan.
Kiefer's cell phone rings. It's Chloe, alerting him that she's uploading their cover profiles to Kiefer's data pad. After making sure that Walker can't hear them, Kiefer asks Chloe to look into Walker's file and see what it says about her and Vladimir. "I need to know everything that happened between them." Nosy much?
At 8:19:19, we're back at the U.N., and so is Hasssan, already. Seven minutes ahead of schedule. He enters the room where Taylor is waiting, and blows past her polite pleasantries: "If this is about my security forces and the necessary steps I'm taking back home, I'm afraid I can't help you." Taylor wonders if they're really necessary, and Hassan says this was a coup, by the same people who are trying to restart the country's nuke program. As she continues to fuss, he lays it out for her: "The only real law is power. Any perceived weakness on my part and I'm finished...My brother tried to kill me. Helped by elements within my own government. Those elements must now be purged." Taylor is shocked that he's talking about executions. "It is the only thing my people understand," Hassan says. What's he doing here at all, then? Taylor argues, "The world is trusting you because I trust you." She wants him to find a middle ground in the name of peace. "I need to see my family now," is all he says, and walks out. Wow, you try to kill a guy once and he goes all hardcore on you.
