The whole season was weird! Starting with Chloe... Didn't it start out that she had let some geek guy from CTU spend the night? Now she's pregnant? I admit though I had to laugh, she told Milo they needed to get back to work.
The last 20 minutes was a waste of time. I fully expected Jack to jump off the balcony onto the rocks! I did see Nadia in the preview for next January, a helicopter and Jack running on a ramp with a big gun... I dunno Rudy, it sure seemed like the end of a series, I agree.
IF it comes back this is how I see it.
The old geezer Bauer: I think he wasn't hurt that badly by Josh and rolled off the platform with the computer board and got away. If Jack and Josh could make it off the platform so could daddy Bauer.
Cha-Ching: CTU has NEVER held on to anyone they take prisoner. The crack ER team will fix him up and I can see him escaping first hour. (If there is one!)
Bill Buchanan cannot retire and certainly not on the East Coast. He has to be somewhere that would allow him to help Jack. Happened in the past.
Tom the Weasel. I liked him a lot, they need to keep him and the VP too because even before he was blown up the Prez was at least half dead as an actor. (Was he an actor?)
Audrey: Well maybe in the next 48 hour session they can revive her but not the next 24 for sure. (I really expected her to wake up though, didn't you Rudy?)
We have Josh's mother for romantic opportunities, and we still don't know who really is/was his father. (However I still think he could have been adopted but he did manage to get the gun and shoot the old geezer.)
Other women have come and gone though haven't they. Plot fillers.
We have the Prez's sister and her boyfriend who disappeared after he got the heck beat out of him.. Could they bring them back?
I can't even imagine who could be the bad guys though, we've gone through so many, but we do have Cha-Ching still alive with numerous little warriors who replicated themselves like they did in the Matrix. I could see one of them helping with the CTU escape.
