a new day dawns...


Jack is being held captive by the Chinese, seven months after Season 5 at an unidentified location. He is being tortured by several guards who inform Cheng Zhi that they are still unable to extract information from him regarding a Chinese government agent who they believe is working for the United States. Two American covert-ops soldiers break into the complex and free Jack from his cell. They lead him through an outdoor complex, to a concealed vehicle nearby. They arrived in a field and summon a man by the name of Hong Wai, who had been concealed in the shadows of the field, to greet Jack. Hong Wai is immediately recognizable as one of the men that Jack had been questioned about earlier, regarding the mole in their government.  As Jack flinches in recognition of Hong, several flood lights come on, and Chinese military vehicles swarm on the scene. Cheng Zhi walks into the field and thanks Bauer for his help in identifying Hong, whom he had apparently suspected all along. Cheng then executes Hong with a single shot to the head.
