The Making of '24: Redemption'

Genre: Short

He's the ambassador's

chief political officer.

I know who he is.

He says he left some

messages for you to come

see him at the embassy.

I got his messages.

What's going on, Jack?

I'll tell you

what's going on.

The senate subcommittee

has questions...

about the illegal detention and

torture of certain prisoners

in Mr. Bauer's custody.

I have a subpoena

requesting you to appear,

and it's way past due.

So consider yourself served.

[ Panting ]

I told the boys I'd

help them unload the truck.

Excuse me.

Failure to comply to

a subpoena is a federal

offense, Mr. Bauer.

You are bound by law

to respond.

Then give them my response.

They want me

back in Washington,

they can come and get me.

The, uh, ambassador


that you and Bauer were

in the special forces


- How long has he been here?

- A few months.

He never mentioned

the subpoena?


Well, he's been ducking it

for more than a year, across

three different continents.

Washington is leaning

on the ambassador

to deliver him.

And now the ambassador's

leaning on you.

Bauer doesn't come back

to the States on his own,

they'll come for him.

That would be a mistake.

You're doing God's work

here, Carl.

Between malaria

and the wars,

these kids never

had a chance.

Now you're giving them

a decent life.

It'd be a shame

if the funding dried up.

Don't threaten me, Frank.

I'm just giving you

the facts.

You're his friend.

Talk some damn sense

into him.

Here, Jack.

Thank you, Thomas.

Okay. Go back.

Now you. Go, go.

There he is.

The mighty warrior

who traded his gun

for a wheelbarrow.

Why are you here, hmm?

To do penance

for all your sins?

You don't want

to talk about it.

I don't blame you.

- Watch out.

- The man from the embassy--

What did he want?
