My only thought from last week: Chloe, with the Lead Pipe, in the White Truck.

Lot of things they need to wrap up tonight. Should be an action packed "hour".

Odds Jack dies tonight? (probably 1,000,000 to 1 or more)
Odds Jack gets captured/turns himself in for something (to an enemy)?
Odds Jack ends up in US jail?
Odds Jack just walks off into the sunset (maybe with Audrey?)

Do they have the balls to do this? Would be great to have the ending be a silent clock for Jack. One last ditch heroic thing he does and he ends up dying while saving the day.

I don't think anybody knows that except the president and Jack

I think they were in the room alone when the pres said it and I don't remember him saying it to anyone else

and if the pres dies ...

They were in the car on the way to the stadium, and the President said he left a letter of pardon signed in his office (or somewhere "official"). That's what I remember.

What are the odds anybody but Jack walks out of that helicopter alive? The idiots didn't even handcuff him!

So, we have no more resolution than we did four years ago? This makes me mad and hopeful all at the same time.

Without specifics for those who haven't watched yet, thought Heller's scenes and dialog were pretty terrific! William Devane remains one of my favorite character actors. I think the writers must be fond of him as well because they gave him some great stuff.

It goes without saying (pun kinda intended) that Kiefer can say more with one look than many other actors can say with pages and pages of words.

Sorry that the ride is over, but it was great while it lasted. And maybe we'll get lucky again sometime to see 24 come back.

I wish the ending had Chloe call up agent Morgan and say the Russians have taken Jack, what do we do. Morgan says, well lets go get him back... fade to black.

Moral of this story: Never love Jack. It's always fatal.

(Or am I forgetting some fling earlier in the series?)

If they ratings were a little better I read that they planned to do more mini series like this. But the ratings were nothing special. It started out very well but even Masterchef beat it in the ratings last week.

i did really enjoy these 12 episodes. 24 is easily one of my favorite shows of the 21st century.

....or they're holding open the door for a movie.....

Here's what I want to know......

They did the silent clock mid-episode for Audrey. Yet they did another silent clock at the end. Was this ALSO supposed to be for Audrey, or was it foreshadowing for Jack, the series/franchise, etc?

Thoughts?

For sure. Give his friend a few minutes to get Chloe safe and then its 24:LAD part II. If there'd been anymore time left in the show, that helicopter, and everything in it, would have been toast.

They left everything open for another show. New kickass agent coming of age. New president around the corner to be the clueless antagonist. Jack still alive and has plenty of time to nurse a grudge. Chloe still around to provide incredible tech support and stupid actions.

Not exactly satisfying writing, but smart to leave the door open. I guess. Kinda disappointing from the viewer's side, at least this viewer.

Sounds like in the writers room, no character was safe on the finale.

It's good to see they didn't let good writing or common sense interfere with the ending any more than they did the beginning . Just one example: you just save the president's daughter from a sniper and rather than rush her off the scene you (and she) stand around for a while. sigh

I don't think the last silent clock would be a second one for Audrey. I have to think it was for Jack, tho I expected the whole copter to blow up after it took off.

If they bring Jack back again, I don't know who they could attribute the last silent clock to.

Who was Jack's buddy, the bald guy? He seemed pretty cool and was kinda a bad ass himself...but wasn't given any real stand out moments himself. I kept waiting for him to establish himself as the new Tony, but it just never happened.

You're forgetting Kate Warner, who I always liked better than Audrey.

So what now?
I assume that there will be another season of 24 in a few years.
Jack is in a Russian prison.
Audrey is dead. The president will be resigning.
Chloe is in a bad state.

Who's going to be the focus in the next installment?
