Sloan's backstory in "Passing Of Value" was actually inspired partly by the tragic finale of Season 1--Terri is brought to the CTU for her safety...but that's where the mole is, and Jack returns to discover his wife's lifeless body....
Here--I'd say Bashir's showing a bit of a "Jack Bauer" element.
