The season finale (and series finale?) of 24: Live Another Day arrives next week and we’re not ready to bid adieu to Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) yet!
The final episode of the season will take place between 10:00pm to 11:00am marking the first time in the show’s history that an episode hasn’t unravelled in real-time. The show producers promised us at the start of the season that the show would cover an entire 24 hours and it looks like they’re sticking to that.
In the last episode Audrey (Kim Raver) found herself once again at the mercy of Cheng (Tzi Ma) when he and his men killed her security team and her contact the Chinese Embassy during a secret meeting where she tried to get proof that Cheng was behind the Chinese aircraft carrier attack. The episode closed with Audrey told to sit on a bench as a sniper was aimed at her ready to fire if she disobeyed Cheng’s orders.
Elsewhere in the episode Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) escaped from Cheng’s clutches and was last seen regaining consciousness in the woods, Jack and Kate (Yvonne Strahovksi) learned of Mark Boudreau’s (Tate Donovan) betrayal and used him to get to Stolnavich (Stanley Townsend), and President Heller (William Devane) appealed to the Chinese President over the latest attack.
All bets are off in this adrenaline-fuelled finale when, with the fate of the free world on the line, Jack is forced to make a grave decision.
