Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

^ I agree. Even "24" can't go that far.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

I'd much rather there be at least some kind of explanation about what happened to Wayne Palmer.

That said, I think it might be neat to do a season/"day" that is set between Day 1 and Day 3. Return to form, sort of.

I don't know, however, if I believe the writers of 24 would be able to do it without cheeseballing it all up.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

To quote a Lost ep title, "Dead is Dead." At least in Palmer's case...the show would lose all credibility if they brought him back. That said, he's very much missed, and I think the show really lost something when it lost him.

Agree that Wayne Palmer should come back though--we need to at least know what the hell happened to him!

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

I thought that CSI Miami was channeling Star Wars at one point. Darth Horatio always wearing black, telling his newly discovered son that he is his father, and then the son denying it (at the end of a long dock). Another guy was seeing a ghost of some dead dude after he was shot in the head (just a flesh wound!). Palmer can come back as a ghost like Obi-wan Kenobi, giving Jack advice and saying cool shit.

Once the Prez is down we're not supposed to find out what happens to him! We never learned what happened to President Whathisname from Season Four either.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

Likewise, we don't know what happened to Logan's VP who presumeably was bumped up right after Logan was arrested.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

Logan getting stabbed in the throat and then never being referenced again is right up there with the dropped Palmer assassination storyline for me and the things that irritate me on 24.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

^
They did reference Logan this season. Renee made an offhand comment to Jack at some point confirming that Logan survived and got put back on house-arrest. Likewise, Olivia made an obtuse reference to Martha Logan in a conversation with Aaron, but it never got past said reference.

Still, I agree. They could have elaborated a little more, given what a big deal they made out of it in that particular episode of season 6.

Logan's VP turned out to be Satan. Don't you watch the CW?

Only if the man in black from Lost's season 5 finale uses Palmer as his next loophole.

The show has made it it's business to quickly forget about deposed Presidents. Keeler went down onboard during season four, and although a Fox mandate forced the writers to have him survive the crash, he's never seen or heard again and Logan is shown jovially serving out his term in Day Five.

That actually makes me wonder if Palmer would have otherwise died, but Fox didn't allow them to kill a sitting President, so they just put him in a coma like Keeler. For the same thing happens in Redemption--no mention of Palmer and Daniels is shown to be (less than comfortably) serving out his term!

We're going to find out that Wayne Palmer and annoying Palmer sister had David cryogenically frozen and since this is like the year 2124 or something now, they have the technology to resurrect him.
