Well, I was half-right. I knew Jack would end up being the one taking the fall for the Chinese consulate invasion, but I figured we'd end the episode with him being cuffed to head off to China. This ending was just as enticing though, as we just have no idea what's going to happen.

I knew immediately when the car blew up that Tony and the Chick were not in it. She was too intent on getting away. I can't believe that Jack didn't ask her where the nuke was going to strike. I have a hard time believing she wouldn't have know.

All in all a pretty exciting season IMO. I know a lot of people had gripes about the believability and the suspension of disbelief required, but that never bothered me. In fact, the more over the top and non-believable, the more fun. I can't wait until next season!

Great ending....certainly 100% better than last season with Jack sitting in his car crying. So, those who know he is not dead are Michelle, Tony, Chloie, CTU director, any more?

The CTU Director thinks he's dead as well. Its just Tony, Michelle, Chloe and President Palmer.

Palmer knows too. I wouldn't say with certainty that CTU dir. was in on it, though it seems likely he was. I thought for sure we were gonna get at least 5 mins of Kim Bauer. Anyway, the show ended in perfect 24 form. If they could manufacture such an intricate plan in so little time then this can be only one television show! Time bending rules!

wow, I suppose I am going to be in the minority but for me, there is comedy, high comedy and then there was the last 30 minutes of 24, perhaps the most unintentionally funny thing that I've seen. This was the first season I managed to make it through to the end but I guess 24 just isn't for me.

oh well I'm sure it will do just fine without me!

Can't come up with much better of a cliff-hanger than that. I wonder if next season, Jack is not even on the show for the first few hours....kind of like they did with Tony and David Palmer in this season....and then all of a sudden he shows up somehow to save the day again.

I was waiting to see Cloie and Edgar run off together into the sunset.

Lesson for would be baddies - if you're firing off a stealth missile from Iowa, aim for Chicago. Don't make the missile fly right past Jack.

I was hoping he'd at least give Kim one last call. Of course, at 7:00 am, she would have been in the shower and unable to hear the phone ring. That scene would work. ;)

C'mon... how much cooler would that episode have been if they'd played the ending Incredible Hulk theme music as Jack walked off into the sunrise?!? :D

First, great season. If you like 24, you loved this season. If you want to nitpick.. that's fine. Watch something else.

Second... uh... I think the writers were watching old reruns of the Incredible Hulk TV show when writing the ending. Did it strike anyone else as the EXACT same way all of those episodes ended? :)

Fun season!

I was whistling it.

And I also had something about "the shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man... who does not exist" running through my head.
