After twenty months in a Chinese prison, Jack Bauer is suddenly returned to the United States.

A broken man, physically and mentally, Jack agrees to the exchange. But when he learns that his new captor, Abu Fayed, is actually the man behind the attacks and that his own sacrifice is meaningless, Jack lashes out and escapes.
