Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

I think they could bring back Wayne Palmer. I don't see why they didn't have him as President in S.7, other than thinking it would be clever to have a Madam President, because when the season was written, it looked like Hillary Clinton was going to be the next POTUS in the real world. I like Taylor but I would like to have seen more of Palmer minor.

But David? Nope, great character as he was, he's dead as a dodo. The Tony thing was stretching it but bringing back Palmer, who we saw take a bullet in the neck, before seeing his corpse, would stretch it beyond breaking point.

Keeler, that's right! We never did learn his fate.

If anyone watches The Mentalist, they had "Keeler" and "Logan" in the same episode.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

So there have been several presidents so far.
Palmer I-dead
Keeler-unknown-presumed dead
Logan-unknown-presumed dead
Palmer II-unknown-presumed dead
Daniels-alive but sad

The lesson here is apparently to never run for president. Its a surer death then being on Voyager where they seem to pack gunpowder into the consoles.

Re: 24 Question: Should They Bring Back Palmer?

Logan is not dead, as mentioned above. The fates of both Keeler and Wayne Palmer are still unknown, and it's unlikely they will be mentioned again.

It's true that apparently the FOX network refused to let the '24' writers kill a sitting US president. So Palmer and Keeler are in a weird limbo where they aren't quite alive or dead. They'll probably stay that way.

Why not?

Jack can spend the next season saving something he's never saved before: Himself.

He can spend the whole season in a coma and Palmer and Terri can represent "good" in his dream world and dad and brother can represent "bad".

And, best of all, then I can have those zombies. At least for an episode or two.

I'm looking for Wayne Palmer to return since we don't know what's happened to him. I think they could work him in to the resurrected CTU as working on the bureaucratic side maybe.

Wayne Palmer would've made perfect sense as the money behind Renegade CTU Team Buchanan in season seven, so naturally it didn't happen.

Oh look. Tony's good. Now evil. Now good. Oh wait he is evil again. Does the show try to make sense anymore?

I thought it was clear that Tony was always a good guy in deep cover. The only time I blinked was when he iced Renee's love-eyed boss, but omlette>egg
