The season ending episode of 24 last night had agent Jack Bauer to be handed over to the Chinese government for prosecution for his secret mission. Jack was surely doomed. But then he pulls of this death scene where he pretends that he dies, and then escapes off to a new life and new identity with only four or five people knowing.
Now they can continue the 24 series with Kiefer Sutherland (the actor who played Jack Bauer), but instead it would have to be a whole new setting, because none of the other characters could know that Jack is alive (if they knew, they would have to turn him over to Chinese government)
With Jack’s new identity anytime you see him in any other tv show, you can say that is Jack Bauer… just under a different identity.
If Sutherland appears in any other tv shows or movies, I will make a post about it on this blog noting how this character is actually still Jack Bauer.
