Jack's back. And he's primed for a fight. We get dueling deep voices at (close to) dawn when Jack confronts Devon at the NBC offices. Devon's phoney fiance, Kathy, has replaced her comatose dad as CEO of General Electric, allowing Devon to take Jack's place at NBC and run TGS with Tracy Jordan while Kathy watches soap operas, surrounded by cuddly toys, at Jack's old desk.
Jack spots cracks in Devon's veneer and decides it's worth restarting at the bottom of the network, in the mailroom, working his way back up to executive heights - a master plan he hopes to accomplish in nine years time.
