Sark meets up with Masari in a room housing the bomb. They exchange some bad-guy small talk and finally, Sark opens up his briefcase and asks to be taken to the prisoners. Masari asks, "Why the rush?" Sark responds, "I need to be in Tunis by sundown." "I'm afraid, uh that won't be possible," says Masari, pointing a gun at Sark's head. Uh-oh.
Back outside with Dix, he's trying to get some water out of one of the guards for his steaming truck. The guard can't leave his post, however, so Dix is SOL. Just then, the guard's walkie beeps and Dix senses that something's going down. The guard brings up his gun and Dix shoots him in the knee as Getty and Rachel roll out from beneath the truck. Dix points his gun at the guard's chest and demands to know where the prisoners are being held.
Down in the prison area, a guard runs to the door after Dix yells at him to open it. Dix promptly shoots him dead and he, Getty, and Rachel enter. Dix orders Rachel to cover the entrance as he and Getty run off to get Jack and Caroline. They come upon a staff of guards outside the cell and Getty tosses a gas grenade into their midst. It goes off and he and Dix shoot the shit out of all the guards. Damn. Getty opens the door to the cell and Jack immediately says that Caroline needs medical attention. "You don't look so good yourself," quips Getty. Dix says that an extraction team is standing by and that he'll call for them. Getty gets on comms to Rachel and tells her that they have Jack and Caroline but that Sark and Masari are still missing. Rachel cocks her gun and heads off to find them. She opens up a door and gets an "oh shit" look on her face. She calls Sydney and tells her that her father's alive, but that they have another problem. That's when we see that Sark has been chained to the micropulse bomb and that it's been set to go off in about eight minutes. Oh shit, indeed.
