Episode guide Edit
Minute 1: A man and a woman enter a hotel room making out. Everything is passionate until the woman breaks the man's neck. She then takes out all kinds of technical equipment and takes a scan of the man’s hand. The man's ID-card on the floor reveals his identity as Donald Frick of the Department of Defense.
Minute 3: The suspect appears to be Susan Walker, Martin’s CTU partner and former lover. Martin refuses to be put on the case, but because of a possible link with the kidnapping of James Heller (see Season 4), Sutton wants his best agent. Unexpectedly, Susan calls their office.
Minute 4: Susan warns Sutton and Martin not to come after her. CTU analyst Kelly traces the call and determines the location.
Minute 5: Martin goes to the location Kelly gave him. There, he finds a man whom he subdues. He also finds a router and realizes Susan was never there.
Minute 6: Martin questions the suspect, Christopher Gerber, with force. He refuses to talk, fearing what his employers would do to him. Gerber gets his fingers around Martin’s trigger and commits suicide.
Minute 7: Martin calls Kelly and has her do a background check on Gerber. A name and address of an accomplice pops up, arms dealer Oliver Krakowski.
Minute 8: Martin arrives at the address. Krakowski, returning home with groceries, makes a run for it. Martin chases him and is able to corner him. Krakowski is shot, and Martin turns around and sees Susan. She knocks him unconscious.
Minute 9: Martin awakes in a cell handcuffed to a bar. He hears Susan talking about receiving payment from a Navi Araz. Martin manages to get his handcuff off of the bar, but not without alerting Susan.
Minute 10: Susan enters the cell because Martin is nowhere to be seen. When she checks under the bed, Martin shows up behind her. A fight ensues and Martin manages to get the upper hand.
Minute 11: Susan explains her motives for murdering Donald Frick: if his and three other agents' palm prints are combined, a nuclear missile can be hijacked and launched. Frick was planning to sell his print, making his murder necessary. She has found out Sutton is working with the terrorist and now has the body. She has no idea who the other three agents are.
Minute 12: Martin lets Kelly find out if Sutton is involved. She finds a secret account into which a N. Araz deposited money. She also finds a secured file that can only be accessed from Sutton’s computer. Martin decides to return to CTU.
Minute 13: Martin lures Sutton out of his office and breaks in. He accesses the file for the program, an operation known as "Blind Justice", and finds the names of the other DoD agents needed to access the missiles: Chris Jarvis, Kenneth Proctor, and Steven Kinsey.
Minute 14: Martin bumps in to Sutton who tells him about two other dead DoD agents, Proctor and Kinsey, and recognizes Susan has been telling the truth.
Minute 15: Martin tells Susan that he believes her. Susan tells him they must find the remaining DoD agent before it is too late.
Minute 16: When they arrive at the house of the final agent, Chris Jarvis, the front door is open. Inside, they find Jarvis dead. Next to him is a broken palm-scanner. The agent’s hand has been cut off.
Minute 17: Susan knows someone who can help them break into the DoD computers. This way they might be able to change the data so it is useless to the terrorists. While Martin drives, Susan calls the contact. He says he’ll be ready, and hangs up. He then hands his phone to a gunman who is holding him under duress.
Minute 18: Susan and Martin arrive at Susan’s contact only to find him dead. The blond-haired killer shows up and a gunfight breaks out. Martin manages to take the killer out. But the computer they need was hit in the fight.
Minute 19: Susan gets the computer to work. It will take about 20 minutes before the program will be able to make the changes. At CTU, Kelly is able to trace the computers signal and Sutton demands she dispatch a team.
Minute 20: Just before the program is complete, Sutton enters with a team and removes the key-card needed to erase everything. He arrests Susan and Martin.
Minute 21: Sutton questions Martin, who openly accuses him of the conspiracy. Sutton regards Martin's behavior as extremely inconsistent with his former excellent performance, which does not bode well for his future. He tells the guard to move Martin to holding.
Minute 22: In the holding room, Martin and Susan wonder why Sutton is still at CTU while he has everything he needs. They realize Sutton is not working with the terrorists. Only one other person has been involved with everything that has happened that day: Kelly. Meanwhile, Kelly finds Sutton, and shoots him dead with a sound-suppressed pistol.
Minute 23: Susan fakes a seizure. Matthews, the guard, enters but Martin knocks him out and takes his sidearm.
Minute 24: Susan and Martin go to Sutton’s office because it is the only place where Kelly can send the info to the terrorists without anyone else noticing. They barge in and Kelly shoots Susan in her shoulder. Martin shoots Kelly dead and removes the key card before it is able to complete the transfer. Martin now realizes he is shot in the stomach and falls down. Susan catches him and yells for help while Martin lies in her arms.
