At the beginning of Day 4, Jack has traded in his gun and badge for a suit, taking on the role of Secretary of Defence James Hellers advisor. It wasnt long before the suit was removed and his holster back on. The Secretary and his daughter, Jacks lover Audrey, have been taken hostage by terrorists and Jack is leading the investigation to rescue them. As the terrorists prepare to publicly execute James Heller live via the internet, the President reluctantly orders an airstrike on the building upon realising the marines will not arrive in time. Jack disregards his order to stand down and proceeds to infiltrate the compound with only eight minutes until the missile hits. Its a race against the clock, one Jack has battled time and time again, and true to the form we know and love, once again emerges victorious. Jack storms the compound in style, single handily killing 11 terrorists and saving both the Heller and Audrey. The marines eventually arrive and do a splendid job of cleaning up after Jack (something they should be used to by now). Heller thanks him and comments that Jack hasnt missed a beat; its an insult they thought he would.
