As I understand it, there isn't much overlap at all. That scene is effectively a "flash forward", a teaser to the events of the sequel, shown well out of chronological order. If you remove that final scene, then the movies take place in sequence, one almost immediately after the other. At the end of Bourne Supremacy, Jason escapes from the assassin the CIA ...

Here is the clip in question. There is the allusion that Nicky and Jason were in a relationship before the events of The Bourne Identity. Logistically it makes sense, because they were both stationed in Paris, and undoubtedly Jason would have had contact with Nicky, since she was his handler.

I think it was to pull the team away from Landy so she could proceed to 41571 without hassle. You'd assume he's already worked out that code and anticipates she would go there.

They are to (1) destroy the KGB spy center that trained Carlos himself, and (2) kill Jason Bourne. These goal conditions are an ultimatum to ...

The first four movie titles mirror the book titles verbatim. The movie is called The Bourne Ultimatum because the book has that title. I have no proof to justify this other than to point out that it would be an extraordinary coincidence that the first three movies and the three books by Robert Ludlum happen to have the same titles when their plots are so ...
