Re: 24: Live Another Day. Discussion Thread. (Spoilers)

Cliffhanger? Wasn't the ending of Live Another Day suitable bittersweet? Jack just gets arrested by the Russians to live out the rest of his life in a Gulag somewhere in exchange for Chloe's life.

Was it really meant to be a Cliffhanger ending?

And at the very least, both the cliffhanger- which is sort of a decaf version of how season five ended- and the short on the Blu Ray setting up not only Tony's return but a new Mysterious Villain (tm-who seems to have realised the show is set well into the future by this point and has made Tony hologram glasses)- has to be a sign the showmakers are sure we'll be getting more soon. And I look forward to it.
Well if they ever make a character out of the guy behind the voice, they're going to have to recast since it was Xander Berkeley, the late George Mason. Mason was too important in the 24 world to bring the actor back as someone else, like they did with Tony Todd.
As season 7 was one of the best of the latter seasons of 24, they'll follow its template by revealing that, like Tony, Mason didn't actually die after all and having George return as a radioactive villain.

I think people are only referring to it as a cliffhanger since there is a strong chance we'll be getting another season. It was written in such a way to appear like an ending, but we all know it's not.

Nothing's confirmed, but there is an extremely high probability we'll get a tenth season.

I'm guessing he can be tempted back, but it's not automatic. He'll wait until the writers blow his socks off.

A season could work with having the specter of Jack needing rescue and Tony, Chloe et. all rescue him. But at the end of the day, you need Jack.

Re: 24: Live Another Day. Discussion Thread. (Spoilers)

The Tony short really does feel like set up for another season, and there's one big loose end in that the evil conspiracy revealed at the end of season 7 that turned out to be behind pretty much everything that ever happened in the show was never followed up on and we never found out what Rene learnt from torturing that one guy.

As for the ending, was it actually confirmed in dialogue it was Russian agents that took Jack off? We only heard his side of the phone conversation and the guy he spoke to at the end and their destination could have been pure misdirection, a Russian rather than the Russians. Between that and someone arranging Tony's jailbreak, perhaps someone (radioactive three headed George?) is collecting the most hardcore insane badass agents they can for a Special Purpose?

Does anyone know if the full bonus scene is yet online? I've only been able to see the clip with Tony pleading to be released from solitary confinement, not the other clip with the mysterious voice that's been described in this thread.

Wouldn't that kind of defeat the purpose of it being a selling point for the bluray
