Jack Bauer stares down...

an unhappy ending on "24"
So what do you think it will be?
I think someone close to him will perish?

"We're honoring the series and the creative integrity of (Bauer) and then possibly bringing in a whole new group (of characters)," Gordon said. "What I do think is important is that we do not retread over old ground."
(Emphasis mine.)



Sorry, I couldn't resist....as much a fan of the show as I've been all these years.

Re: Jack Bauer stares down...

My guess is he's going to prison for assassinating President Logan.

Re: Jack Bauer stares down...

I don't necessarily think that it means someone close to him has to die to give him an unhappy ending... That has already happened... Renee's death was the start of the unhappy ending, now the path he's on is leading him against his own government, which he has kind of done before, but not to this extreme. Because when he went up against a corrupt regime that was one thing, this President Taylor is making bad choices but with a good intent.

I'm guessing we see Jack succeed in exposing the Russians and maybe even killing the Russian ambassador along the way, but I think we're likely to see it end with Jack in US custody for crimes committed. He shot a cop in the foot, he killed private security guards who were holding Dana prisoner, etc...

I could live with that. It's a bill that's needed settling going back to Season 4.

Re: Jack Bauer stares down...

Frankly, this doesn't surprise me. Maybe they're painting a target on Chloe's back. She's really the only one left (beyond Kim) who means anything to Jack.

If anything, I'm more concerned about this:

"We're honoring the series and the creative integrity of (Bauer) and then possibly bringing in a whole new group (of characters)," Gordon said. "What I do think is important is that we do not retread" over old ground."
Emphasis mine. This might have been a good thing to consider, oh, I don't know, seven years ago.

If Jack kills Logan, he'd probably get a medal.

It'll end with Jack Bauer looking straight into the face of... another Jack Bauer.

Howard Gordon is the worst showrunner in Hollywood. From the LA Times...

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/show...py-ending.html

But in the spirit of taking the series to a place where it hasn't been before, we've done this thing, and it's certainly not playing it safe. But it is very emotionally climactic, and we're pretty excited by it."
To a place where the show's never been before? Well, let see you have Jack out for revenge, going rogue, and really angry. Real original there, Howard.

To me, the show ended after Season 7. It would have been much better than a lot of the crap they presented in Season 8.

It looks like Jack will either end up in prison or dead. He's out for blood and he doesn't give a damn about the consequences.

Outside of killing Chloe (I don't think they will) or Kim (Haven't heard anything about a return) that's all I can think of. The writers have succeeded in burning just about every other one of Jack's personal relationships over the years.

Kring at least was capable of one great season. Hell, Rick Berman even had the Next Generation.

Gordon was behind Day Five. At least give him props for that.

Like Tim Kring, he should have quit while he was ahead.

"This show is a tragedy, and to give Jack a happy ending didn't feel authentic."
I can only make this face when reading comments like this:

I personally am sick of authentic. Fallen heroes is not what I'm interested in.
