Goodness, no! They wouldn't get rid of Jack! I'm saying he might have resigned or been fired from the CIA. He might have had to look for others who could provide him with the resources he needed to continue his search for Sydney--others who have their own agenda. He might, for example, have to ask another "favor" of an "old friend," the kind that you spend "more time than you care to paying back." That is, he might end up partnered with Sloane after all and therefore not be available to the CIA.
